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.

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

Back in about 2005 AIM Surplus was selling Swiss K-31's for $59.95 delivered to your door. I had just gotten my C&R license and bought one. I put a clamp on scope mount on it and an old 10X scope and shot the best group of my life. At today's prices for K-31's, I kick myself for not buying at least ...

Re: World's Largest Black Powder Cannon

I watched that video a couple of weeks ago. There was as tremendous amount of engineering and construction that went into that thing. The loading procedure was amazing. Especially the pump and hydraulic system.

Maybe some should test work helmets in their spare time.

Re: Gun show yesterday.

Went to a gun show here in Kansas City yesterday. it was great to finally see a gun show with a LOT of guns. Hector If you were at the Expocenter near the airport, it was the Missouri Valley Collectors annual show. It's different from other shows because it's a club event. I did not go as I was out...

Re: Gun show yesterday.

See any K98Ks or French 1935 autos? Any Norwegian 30-06 K98s? There were some K98's, but I was mainly looking at Winchester rifles and shotguns, and some Marlin open hammer pump shotguns. I saw a lot of military surplus rifles but the asking prices were through the roof, so I didn't spend much time...

Gun show yesterday.

Went to a gun show here in Kansas City yesterday. I haven't been to one for a while because they were mostly jerky making equipment and cheap knives, but this one was pretty good. One guy had a fantastic collection of M1-C sniper rifles and a few 03A4 sniper rifles. That collection really stood out ...

Re: Signs you are growing old.

When you are talking to someone at the store and they never heard of the "Dobie Gills show" and do not know who Maynard G Krebs was let alone what a beatnick was. "Oh. It's only you Maynard."

Re: Signs you are growing old.

Middle age is when you get up 3 times during the night to pee.

Old age is when you forget to get up.

Signs you are growing old.

When the most used item in your spice cabinet is MetaMucil.

When you are on a first name basis with the valet parking attendant at the doctor's office.

Re: California indoor water rules

If I understood the article correctly the limit is 55 gal per day PER PERSON, not per household. That's probably doable but it would make more sense to fix the supply problem rather than legislate the demand.

Re: Aguila Super Extra .22 LR ammunition review

I've been shooting Aguila ammo for over 10 years. Their 30 grain super high velocity suffers in accuracy, and the 60 grain sub-sonic tends to keyhole through the normal 16 twist rimfires, so I've not been impressed with their exotic stuff. HOWEVER , their standard velocity, and high velocity ammo ha...

Re: Mad Minute

I took my 03A3 to an Appleseed shoot once. The first stage of timed fire is 10 rounds, offhand at an upper torso silhouette. The distance was 25 meters but the target is scaled to equal 100. Allotted time for that stage was two minutes, and you started with a loaded rifle. Of course that meant 5 rou...
