Re: Your thoughts

Was all that 7.62 brass reloadable? :mrgreen: That would be my first thought. "I once got overflown by an inverted F4 when I was on the Mt Whitney summit....back in the early 1980s."

Re: Your thoughts

NAS Dallas had both a Navy and Marine F-4 squadron and Carswell had an ANG F-4 squadron. The low level routes were all marked and we would file the route on our flight plan. After take-off, we would sometimes get "dislocated" and go where we wanted to go. You would never shoot unless you were on a r...

Re: Iraq:Decorated Navy SEAL to face court martial for murder of ISIS fighter

"The defense says Gallagher was turned in by his subordinates because he was too tough on them." I think this is a weak defense. Seal's are a tight group and whining about something too tough would get you laughed at. I think it all depends on who the subordinates are. If they are in the same team t...

Re: ammo on sale

Wal mart has Reminton UMC brass 9mm for $7.97/50. They also asked for an ID and entered my DL number in the sale transaction. I asked if this was a store requirement or government requirement and she said government

Re: BATFE: Bump-Stock-Type Devices: Notice of proposed rulemaking

Fox news reported that the final bump stock law is in effect and there is a 90 days window to get rid of the devices. They must be destroyed or turned in to your local ATF office.

Re: BATFE: Bump-Stock-Type Devices: Notice of proposed rulemaking

From the final rule: "The rule will amend 27 CFR 447.11, 478.11, and 479.11 to clarify that bump-stock-type devices are machineguns as defined by the NFA and GCA because such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.

Re: Lion Air Flight Data Recorder Simulation of Crash

This was a flight computer malfunction. Boeing failed to tell the operator's that the 737Max had this computer installed. The pilots had no control of the plane. This is not going to go well for Boeing.

Re: Las Vegas Tower Controller suffers a stroke

I have read several articles on this. It happened around 11pm and there was another controller in the tower but he left to take a break. He was gone for a LONG time. It is against FAA rules for the Tower to be manned by a single controller. I wondered why they had ground control and tower on the sam...
