Re: F-104 Trivia

While at Ali Al Salem, Kuwait for Southern Watch in 99, I watched one of the HC-130s make an "Oh Shit" low level recovery. Asked the crew when they came through if they were flying acrobatics or something and all I got was a pound sand look. Finally one of the loads told me the VIP (AKA General) the...

Re: F-104 Trivia

F-104, I remember the term man on a rocket used to describe it. Remember seeing them flying when I was a military brat in Germany, and seeing them screaming at low level over the base during NATO TAC-EVALS.

Re: WASR 10

Cleaning rod and sling installed. Will be getting different furniture for it, in a traditional color along with the trapdoor in the buttstock. Already looking better and complete. Might change out the pistol grip also. I'll keep the original furniture as is and it'll be sold with the rifle as a pack...

Re: United States Military Academies

Do we have any graduates or attendees of our nation’s military academies? Specifically USAFA? My youngest son received his appointment on Monday. We toured the school a year and a half ago: very impressive. Not at all like the Marine Corps :D Any tips, pointers, etc? Another nugget of wisdom, that ...

My wife finished repainting the flag pole base a few days ago, and I finished repainting the flag pole and putting a new eagle on top.

Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day 2019 As we all set about getting to where we are going this Memorial Day weekend, with the freedom to celebrate as we wish, let’s take a minute to remember the cost of that freedom. Since 19 April 1775 when the “Colonists” entered into war with Britain, approximately 1,354,664 “American...

Re: Vetterli cartridge lifter sticking

I’ve been using clenzoil lately for a try. Seems ok. Any experience with it? Of. Purse I have my trusty waffenfett. Cool, glad you found the issue, and you made a very valid statement regarding attention to details. We all pull blunders at times, hence the reason why we have to recheck things, some...

Re: Vetterli cartridge lifter sticking

Thanks. I think it does need more grease and oil Everyone has their go to oil and opinions are as varied as the amount of oil types out there.

Check the regs, i have not been following 922r fegs for quite some time. I've thought about getting a ...
