Re: Signs you are growing old.

fluid was a mix of methanol and isopropyl alcohol. Guess we all missed the elementary school buzz. LOL We always got the handouts as class assignments or take homes for the parents. Those were generally notes about upcoming events or as reminders to vote yes for the upcoming school bond issues.

Re: Signs you are growing old.

Explain to your millennial aged kids why movies involving cheerleaders and stewardesses were banned in most communities when you were their age. And why no one smoked close to their dates for fear their heads would go up in flames.

Re: Nice Parker Hale PH5A aperture sight, SMLEs

To my way of thinking it should go into the quarantine file and a PM sent to the poster telling we don't support links to outside sales and auctions. That is if it links to an outside sale.

Re: New to the forum

Being as nice as possible, the former administrator simply walked away from the forum and did not tell anyone he wanted out. It was thru the efforts of a few concerned forum members we were able to resurrect the forum and get it going again. Still not where we would like it to be but we are making h...

Re: Recover old board posts?

It is great that these are available out there still on the internet. Just remember to be careful to follow current copyright laws as the copyright of many these articles have changed hands several times and the ownership is somewhat vague. When in doubt it is always best to create a link advising w...

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

I am northwest of the Museum by 45 min and I can report that I spotted at least two P 51s making a flight in a SE direction toward the base this evening. I wonder if they are keeping them up at Grimes Field in Urbana like they did the B25s when they had the Doolittle Raid Anniversary a couple of yea...

Dicks Sporting Goods Hires Anti Gun Lobbyists

Is there a race among outdoor sporting goods companies to see who can go out of business first?
