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.

Roy Rogers (born Leonard Slye) moved to California in...

Your kids remark you smell like mothballs and bengay. Had a coworker that smelled like that, I called it his Old Man Cologne.

Re: TOO BAD

Yeah Panama City Florida temps suck this time or year. Hell I hate going down to the mailbox and it's only about to 50 feet from the front door. But you come back soaking wet from the sweat, the temps have been in the mid to high 90's here with that ungodly humidity.

The one holding the pole and reaching for the whisky bottle appears to be white.

Wow sounds like you did well, look forward to the pictures. Congrats! Depending on where the ammo came from, you're looking at about $300.00 just there.

Re: Cowboy is now a bad term

Its was not cowboys who defeated the Indians it was the Us Army and US gov't. Think of it this way if the US was not formed and all the tribes had not been defeated history would be very much worse off. The United Staes helped win 2 world wars. Would all of us be better off if Germany had won WW1. ...

Re: Any one know of Units marking their rifles SPANISH CIVIL WAR

Most of the rifles were overhauled and scrubbed at some point after the Civil War. The MP over 8 Flaming Bomb is believed to be a post-SCW arsenal mark. Here's a clearer example of the same marking as posted above on my Spanish Mauser.

Re: Ammo Display Help

Live or dummy rounds, right now I have live rounds for the ones I have. Wife and I are discussing with a reloading buddy the possibility of safing the rounds. The reason for the display is I have a lot of visitors that ask what the different calibers are similar to. This way they can have a visual r...

Ammo Display Help

My wife aka CINC Household has decided she wants to make an ammo display shadow box. She wants to display the rounds all of our weapons take. I have about 2/3''s of what we need on hand but there are a few rounds we are short. Decided to put a "HELP ME" post out there and see if anyone has a round o...

The top anvil goes up into the sky. There are some good youtube videos of this. Why do I get a mental pictu...

Re: where did you spend 4th of July 1976?

Wow let's see, I was 9 years old, we were stationed at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho at the time. So we were downtown Mountain Home watching the parade, then we went to an oldie drive in hamburger joint before heading back to the base. Now the weird part, I remember firework shows prior to Idaho (Spain) ...
