  1. 1888 is long past, so we should be okay prohibiting these people.
  2. "The Devil you know..." If the high-up Cartel leaders are taken out, others will rush to fill in. It could get very messy, very quickly.
  3. They say that the military is only allowed to provide support for the Border Patrol. (Supplies, equipment... non-combat roles.) If this is true, what happens when the Border Patrol starts getting overrun and/or a shooting war breaks out? I would NOT want to be the first Patrol Officer who has to decide between getting overrun, or shooting the unarmed women and children being pushed to the front.
  4. I saw an interesting news story recently, listing the members of the Invasion as known gang members of MS-13, other South and Central American gangs, ISIS members from all over the place. They claimed it's being funded by Cartels and the President of Venezuela?! 🤔 It is already set up as in Invasion, with the women and children up front where the cameras are, and the rear 2/3's are all males aged 18-30. I believe this is how it will hit our borders, too, with the women and children front and center, and the fighters flanking around the sides. If a barely-trained civilian like me can figure that out, I sure hope our military leaders are already prepared for it!
  5. Two words... Bill Clinton. Still DC's "Golden Boy" party-animal, invited to all the big political gatherings. That's what getting Impeached counts for these days... 😎
  6. Back in the '60's or so my Dad did a similar build with a Springfield 1903A3. He had a heavy barrel put on, a nice Monte-Carlo-style stock, and added a good scope and mounts. He was hoping for a good rifle for whitetail deer, but he preferred stalking rather than sitting. This build came out a bit too heavy for hiking around with, so it became a bench-rest rifle for the range. I'm happy to report it's still pretty accurate today! It's your project. If you have the time and interest, I'd say go for it and make something just for you. 😎

    Carry Belt

    Out of curiosity, do they make a shoulder holster for the Judge? Standard model, 3" bbl.
  8. Well, if you want to carry 6 people *comfortably* on trips, you're down to BIG SUV's or minivans... If you want a good commuter car with decent mileage and AWD for Colorado winters, get a Subaru. I get rid of vehicles when they have +100k miles on them, I don't buy them then!
  9. Have to wonder if this exact list has been filled recently? Cat tracks on the top of your new convertible, maybe? Lawn mower blades Ceiling fan kit Cat toys with long strings
  10. And the dog is okay, too!
  11. Best Wishes to you both, I know how hard that situation can be for both people involved.
  12. Sorry to hear about all that, I hope your Mother is doing okay now.
  13. Is she in to more traditional archery, or all the modern equipment? I've known people involved with each. She might like to check out Kyudo, the Japanese form of archery. Also look in to a thumb ring for the release. I also had a friend involved with Yabusame- Japanese mounted archery. That was pretty interesting stuff!
  14. I've enjoyed a few series productions, and some movies, but don't really watch Netflix all that much. I'll ignore their productions just like many others on Netflix I have not watched. No big deal. (I split the cost of it with my buddy, anyway. )
  15. "Vera II?" I'll be in my bunk...
  16. I bought their plain model for my Winchester Model 12, and it fits well. It is a different profile in the "pistol grip" part than the original, less curve to it, but it works fine for what I wanted. Good wood used for it.
  17. If the profit margin is at all related to the price of that junk, they won't even consider dropping it.

    Gunny is Gone

    Godspeed, Gunny. He will be missed. I enjoyed his several TV series, too. OOH-RAH! Tribute to Gunny:
  19. The USS Juneau was recently found as well. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/retropolis/wp/2018/03/20/five-sullivan-brothers-serving-together-were-killed-during-world-war-ii-their-ship-was-just-found/?utm_term=.594e5d4d61e1

    Any Mad Max fans?

    Love it!

    Any Mad Max fans?

    Yep! I always enjoyed the markings on the cars at the beginning of the first movie, how the build-up of the cars increased with their markings from "Patrol" to "Pursuit" to "INTERCEPTOR!"

    SCCY- Anyone have one?

    They are a popular "inexpensive" gun, and seem to be good. I've heard a few complaints about them, especially the long trigger pull. SCCY does seem to have a good warranty behind them, too. I haven't used either one yet, but I like the feel and features of the Taurus PT-111 G2 better. Two more rounds in a much nicer grip, and I prefer to have an external safety on a carry gun, too.
