Re: Jury duty in Houston tomorrow

I have served on a jury before; it was also educational, and not quite as boring once things got started. I agree that it is a vital part of our society and should be handled respectively. If I were the defendant I would certainly want everybody to do so. Enjoy! Jeff Ditto. And this: The defendants...

Re: Audie Murphy "To Heck and Back"

He believed in making himself as small a target as possible when he fought in combat. Wonder what he would think of the modern stances such as The Weaver and The Isosceles when in "self-defense" mode. He didn't exactly make a small target, firing a .50 BMG from the top of that burning tan...

Re: Firearm Photography

1. Photobucket just changed some terms of use and is asking for more money to allow hotlinking. Might not be the best option right now.

2. For ideas on firearms photography, look for Ichiro Nagata's work.
