Re: New range toy

Recoil like a .22 Cowboy, and it's a really good thing there's no muzzle flash. :biggrinjester:

Geez... I want one! :drool2:

Re: New range toy

It finally came in! Man, is that sharp looking, or what?

So... I presume that's your new BUG to your 1911s? Whose pocket-carry holster will you be using? :biggrinjester:

Re: DC: Penetrating the Capital

I keep trying. I'm stubborn...but maybe I'm just stupid, too. Had a post-freeze phone conversation with a left-leaning friend yesterday, and he and I had long ago agreed that we simply can't talk politics. But somehow somewhere the phrase "armed insurrection" at the capitol on January 6 go...

Re: Stay Warm and Safe the Next Few Days

Well, this'll teach me to open a topic about upcoming bad weather. I think I jinxed myself. :???: We lost power at 02:05 Monday and were without for almost 76 hours straight. Gas fireplace was the only source of heat. Thermometer said we hit 32 inside the house for a few hours. Lost water about 05:0...

Re: Login "Remember me"

Man; I never even thought of that. I'm just too used to sites forcing SSL redirect if they have a certificate, which most do nowadays. I just thought TXCHL didn't have a cert so never tried it. :???:

I'm kinda betting it remembers me next time I come back.

Stay Warm and Safe the Next Few Days

This is a record-breaking cold snap and winter storm. Some cities in the plains beat their coldest record highs by over 12 degrees today. For many parts of Texas, houses just aren't constructed with these kinds of conditions in mind. The big problem is that it isn't just a dip into bitter cold for a...

Re: Login "Remember me"

I described my problem with it (Windows 10 + Chrome, two machines, plus a Chromebook) after the first major outage but before the last, including some steps at diagnostics. Still happening exactly the same way. If I close the browser tab, I have to log-on again. If I keep the forum open in a browser...

Re: Environmental Racism

Ahhhh after I read this I went outside to my garage. Then I sat down in my 67 Chevy Caprice with a 396 V8 in it. I cranked that bad boy up so that I could play some 8 track Foreigner 4 Juke Box Hero. And just mashed the throttle in time with the song. Yep all 8 cylinders and 4 barrel Holley working...
