Re: When America understood warship building

My dad was on BB-62 (USS New Jersey), '54-56. It was the "earth moving tool" used to create the DMZ between N and S Korea, gradient salvos over several days. :cool:

Re: Is it illegal to deface political signs?

...but the volunteers never pick them up after the elections. At that point they are trash. If it is after an election is held, and the banner(s) are in a public space, they are abandoned property. If the banner is posted on someone else's property, or on a billboard, no they may not be removed wit...

Re: Is Taurus CS the worst in the Imdustry?

Yeah, worse than Mossberg, which is pretty bad. As far as I can tell, most "manufacturers" have very few, if any, actual gunsmiths on-staff, relying on mass-production tolerances to allow drop-in parts to take up or increase slack in a firearm. The old Beretta 92 clones were very good, as were their...

Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

And given that the mission of the average church is NOT to "bounce someone's <posterior> to the moon". Hock, my personal opinion is that you're a jerk. You're comparing apples and oranges....... Apples to apples. It is not the Church's mission to do so, it is the mission of those assuming the RESPO...

I always find it interesting that when a death is really important, all kinds of mistakes and snafus occur.

It was a violation of Texas law to remove President Kennedy's body from Texas without an autopsy.
No, no body violated LBJ, when Kennedy's body headed out... ;-)

Re: AR digital trigger

People get antsy around the Fostech, but it is a safe, reliable system. ALG isn't quite as snappy, but is quite a bit cheaper.

Either option is about the same as running a Ghost Rocket 3# connector with a Vickers flat trigger on a Glock- double tap on-target in the recoil impulse.

Re: EDC knife

:lol: I had to look up CTS BD1. I'm getting that it's pretty comparable to AUS-8, which I like, but not as much as S30/35 (also not nearly the price point!) I do prefer bronze bushings for my work/outdoor knives, but nylon is fine, if you aren't getting into an environment with heavy microparticulat...

Re: EDC knife

The Byrds aren't bad, but I would spend the money for the Teancious. I assume you know, but Byrds are basically 3rd tier Spydercos (not Spyderco brand, not factory seconds) made with a modified Spyder-hole. Fit and finish (IME) were not good enough to put them in the same league with Spyderco, but -...

Oh good, let’s get another war started spilling Americans’ blood and spending taxpayers’ money. Has not 20 years, thousands of lives lost, 10’s of thousands wounded and 2 trillion dollars spent taught the war hawks anything?
Same war, nothing new. We just wiped a poo-stain off the toilet seat.

Re: Church Meeting on CHL Topics

There are studies that indicate that the "usual" medical response of calling an ambulance only delays getting people who need a surgeon under the knife. For example, that church, being in the DFW area, may very well have had a good trauma center nearby. For serious GSW it might be better to bundle ...

So he could not legally buy a gun. Where did he get the shotgun? Why was he not in a mental institution for his and the public's good? New Jersey? Oklahoma? Mental illness is generally not something you can be cured of. I believe it was under Peanut Farmer Carter, in the 70s, that Fed assistance to...

That is truly beyond belief! I would have just fired up my chainsaw and made firewood out of it. The micromanagement of people's lives and property boggles the mind. I could NEVER live in such a place. At least not peacefully. Oh that old thing? What? it fell over in the wind last Thursday so we cu...
