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: Good show on HMS Hood

Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't evidence of the Bismarck exploration show that the Germans scuttled her in the end?

Been a while since I watched the documentary, also the show "Drain The Oceans" did an episode on the Bismarck that showed the same outcome.

Re: Swiss Vetterli M78

I've got a M69/71 made in 1879 if I did my math right. They are truly unique weapons.

Re: Signs you are growing old.

How about setting in the classroom in school, and the teacher passing out mimeographed papers? I remember the smell and if they were fresh enough, how warm they would be. As I was sitting here watching TV the term used for them came to mind. Dittos that is what my teachers referred to them as. So y...

Re: Modern war ship question

How many of our ships were targeted during Vietnam or any conflict since then? Plus with as potent as weapons are now, how much armor would be needed to protect a ship? At some point it becomes to heavy and slow.

And the fact that everyone picked up their paper and smelled it. The smell was a mix of alcohol and something.

"Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in." No, that's not Michael Corleone speaking, it's me. Ffuries tipped me off to a comprehensive list of TV series. So far I'm only through the letter E and I've found 16 that weren't on my original list. This could be a lifetime work, but I'll sprin...

Re: Very strange WW 2 battle

I just watched this on TV this evening. I had to rewind it, as I missed something and couldn't figure out why Germans were shooting at Germans along side Americans. The show is part of the "Hitler's Last Stand" series with the episode being "Enemy Allies" Season 1 Episode 4. With a description of: "...

Re: Some Czech pistols.

Some? I think you got the market cornered there. Nice collection there that is for sure. I echo the remark and would love to see a rundown on what you have there. I've only have 3 total a 1953 CZ52 and two 1991 CZ83s (Not US made 83s, but made in Czechlosovakia and not import marked, bought them new...

Re: Spurs and the Great West

During Operation Desert Storm at night, when we would hit the rack, the older guys I shared a hooch with would list the Westerns that came on when they were kids. Mind you I was a young E4 Sergeant and was born in 66, some of these guys were Vietnam Veterans. I might still have the notebook with the...
