Re: Shooter at the Earle Cabell Federal Building

During Timothy McVeigh's planning phase, he had considered this downtown Dallas Federal Building for his bomb, but eventually decided on the OKC site.

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

Philip964: You stated "there were 3 planes lost on 9/11 alone".

My count = 4. Two into the WTC, 1 into the ground in Shanksville, PA, and 1 into the Pentagon.

Perhaps your count = only 3, since there is no clearly ID'd plane wreckage in the Pentagon? Maybe that?

Re: Lorcin 380

After you ascertain that there are no cartridges in the chamber or the mag, ensure it's non-firing status by filling the barrel with superglue.

There....now it's safe.

Re: Happy Farher's Day to all the Dada!

This morning I opened my bedroom door to find a long piece of duct tape taped to the top of my doorway, with a Father's day card dangling from the bottom of it. The envelope, in large letters, said "Wakey Wakey!" The card had a button on it. Push it and on the cover, the '32 Ford hot rod, in 3D, mad...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

The 9 of us that attended this past Saturday: Excaliber, jusme, C-dub, hackjob, diesel42, SigM4, strogg, bitterclinger, and myself.

Since this has been our highest attendance in quite some time, shall we return to Arlington Rudy's in July, or give Manny's another shot?

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Rusk, TX

Speaking of the tourist aspect of the railroad, I have always wanted to do a day trip to take the train from Palestine to Rusk. Sounds fun.

Note to non-East Texans : the Texas way to say "Palestine" is "Palace-steen", not "Palace-styne".

Russian military pistols: Makarov, PYa, PL15, PL15K, MP433, & Glocks.

https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/ ... auer-61502

The above link covers the pistols used by the Russian military.

Although Makarov's using 9 x 18 ammo are still in service, it seems all newer pistols will use standard 9 x 19 ammo.

Re: TX: San Antonio man treats GSW with chocolate milk

Not sure if many of you on the board are aware of this, but in the black community it is a "thing" that if someone is overdosing on drugs, the preferred solution is to drink milk. This makes no sense to me, but I've seen various videos where bystanders, observing an overdosing person, will say "Get ...
