Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Nice, but is it over zealous or more a case of making sure you got rid of all the cancer?

Re: BIG BOOM

Met a guy that was stationed at Clark AFB when that happened, so he was sent to Homestead AFB FL and then Hurricane Andrew leveled it, next he came Tyndall AFB FL, I told him he was Jinxed and needed to find someplace else to go.......He retired 6 months later, whew!

Happy Thanksgiving

I'd like to wish everyone here and their families a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Please remember we have military men and women who are deployed or stationed overseas who can't be home with their families. To them my wish is that they have a safe and quiet Thanksgiving, and that they know we are thi...

Veterans Day

I like to wish my fellow veterans a happy and safe Veterans Day. I've spent many a Veterans Day, stateside, stationed overseas, or deployed to combat zones. We have personnel serving in hot areas right now, who won't have the ability to have this day off. To them I wish they have a safe and peaceful...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

Looks like the USAF dropped the ball on this one. I think the form asks for a "dishonorable discharge" not "bad conduct discharge" as the news reports. His court martial was a felony, so the USAF should have reported it. No real good excuse here. No need for more gun laws either. That guy was a nut...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

According to the article I read he did not pass a Texas background check to carry, if so he wouldn't have passed a check to own a weapon. Could be he owned the weapons before the BCD and for whatever reason they were never turned it. If I recall correctly the form you fill out for the background che...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

Another point of blame for them is that he was prior USAF, and they love to say that military members are trained to kill. So an ex military member with an assault weapon, the anti-gun nerds will have a field day with it. Prior and current military will get dragged over the coals. My heart goes out ...

Re: 1930 Finn Captured Dragoon, original numbers matching

Damn I like this one, sweet example. I can't tell, using a cell phone right now, are the serial numbers the same font? Amazing it stayed together the way it is, with all the Izhevsk marked parts. The wear seems to indicate the parts have been together for some time. Love to have one like it in my co...

Re: And he wonders why he is in trouble with the Feds

Damn, possession of stolen US Military/Government equipment, theft of said equipment, oh and don't forget his unregistered silencer....Gee I wonder why the Feds have it in for him! 48 years old with each count carrying a 10 year maximum sentance, so 30 years IF they run consecutively. Seems like a s...
