  1. Is there, or will there be, a pre-order list?
  2. Another wonderful Ally. Tell me again why we give these countries money, so they will "like" us. How is that working our for us? Supposedly, these guys were part of a left wing group that hates ISIS. Does anyone over in that part of the world really like/support us? We all know the answer to that silly question.
  3. I think this is very exciting news. I have faith in Cameron that this new product will be well thought out and properly manufactured. I would like a U.S. made Vepr alternative. If possible, I'd like to see a Chaos 12 gauge semi automatic shotgun with: an AR style safety, one with positive engagement and disengagement; an easily changeable barrel (standard/slug/longer or shorter); chrome lined, threaded, barrel; readily interchangeable stocks; rail options (I suspect this will not be a problem for Chaos); a good, modern, trigger; easy take down and reassembly and some factory finish options, such as FDE, O.D. Green and, possibly, my favorite, marine/nickel.
  4. Wow, Chaos products have always beens some of my favorites. My interest is piqued! Can't wait to see what Cameron has up his sleeve for us.
  5. Best thing I can say about this is I am glad I left D.O.J. eight years ago. One of my friends, at my current office, worked with Mr. Holder, at D.O.J., back in the day. My friend thinks rather highly of Mr. Holder. I do note that my friend is much more liberal than I am.
  6. Time for some bolt polishing!

  7. Thanks, link deleted. This green is a much more interesting shade of green than OD green. I would buy this furniture in a heart beat if it were available. But, alas, that does not appear to be the case. WJ
  8. I like it. I am a fan of winter camo.
  9. Some people don't like green, but it is my favorite color. This thing is flat out awesome (at least in my book) Rather than linking ar15.com, I tried to find this rifle somewhere else, and could not. If anyone else can find and post the picture without the link, I will gladly delete it. WJ
  10. Wow, I'm gone for weeks and weeks and when I log back in, this sad old topic is still around! The lesson here, and one I am fully aware of, but breached myself is NEVER, EVER, EVER, pre-pay for anything in full. (With regard to this particular topic, practice what I preach, not what I did.) WJ
  11. Played for a minute the other night with bigcec1-It was good to get on line with another forum member again. We were in "free for all" and I would have worked with him and against the other guys, but I don't have a mike and I didn't realize I was shooting at him until it was too late! Next time, when I know you are there, I've got your back! WJ
  12. My first reaction to this story was "What a PUSS." Seriously, then, just last night, we went to our favorite Italian restaurant. About three quarters of the way through a Stromboli, I bit down and hit something I thought was a bone. Luckily, I had only bitten down lightly. I politely, as any civilized gentleman would do, extracted it from my mouth. It was not a bone, it was a one inch bolt. Yes, a metal bolt, likely from the mixing machine. I was lucky, in that I had not 'chomped" down hard on the bolt. However, a bolt is a much different thing than an olive pit. A bolt is a "foreign" object, not generally expected to be found in our food. An olive pit is considered a "natural" item, something which could be found in our food. At least when I took my Torts class in law school a long time ago, that difference was significant in the likely success of a cause of action for negligence with regard to the preparation or presentation of food in a commercial enterprise. Anyway, back to the Stromboli with mushrooms, sausage, green peppers and bolts. I called the owner over and told her what I found. She was apologetic and removed the Stromboli from our bill. That was all I expected and all that was appropriate. With hindsight, however, if I had fractured my tooth, I believe I would have expected, at a minimum, that my dental bill be covered. As you know, dental pain is rather unique. We all hate it and should not be subjected to it merely because we are trying to fuel our metabolism. So, after last night, I have softened my position on this topic and I have more sympathy and empathy than I did yesterday morning. If I sued the restaurant for $150,000.00 it would not be news. Maybe, this too, should not be news. I sometimes think we are, in this internet age, exposed to too much news, and too many things that really are not truly "news worthy." WJ
  13. I got 'quick scoped" a lot last night. I hate "quick scoping." Some guy comes around a corner and just points a sniper rifle in your general direction and boom, you are dead with one shot before you can even get a bead on him. Simply Crap!!! There was a lot of lag last night. Several times I fired several shots near, or into someone, only to die and on kill cam it showed them clearly beating me to the punch---when from my perspective, just the opposite had happened. The frustration level with the game is almost to the point of taking away the fun. WJ
  14. Maybe I'll change it to "Pink Snow Leopard56. That ought to really increase the chatter about my name. lol Of course, the only time anyone mentions the name is when I've killed them a few times in a row. So, I guess it is sort of a backhanded compliment.
  15. I am back playing and I have actually done some practicing. Which means I'm not as bad as I was! I'm ready to join in with you guys. I'm now playing under the name Snow_Leopard56 on PS3. I don't know why, but I've been taking a lot of grief for that name. I've never been called gay before, but using that name has subjected me to a lot of "gay bashing." I don't see the connection, but I guess guys with really macho sounding names don't like being beasted by a guy with a "kitty cat" based name! WJ
  16. No, the nickel 870s are sold, as is the winter Daewoo, so it is withdrawn.
  17. The Daewoo is sold. I am liquidating most of my gun collection. I simply do not have time to go shooting and I have lost interest in most of my collection. So, I am selling off most of my guns. All of my guns are pristine and either unfired, or they have only been test fired by the factory or the conversion company. If you have seen one of my guns on the forum and are interested in them, let me know, I will be selling my guns at prices which while not "rock bottom" they will be offered for less than what it would cost you to reproduce them. I will not sell to persons in California or persons who cannot lawfully buy or possess the firearm. I plan on offering a couple of guns at a time. The first two I am selling are the Daewoo DR-200 and the Winchester 1300 shown below. The Daewoo DR-200 was cerakoted in winter digital camo. The Winchester 1300 Defender is duracoated in mortar, with od green. I bought the Daewoo New In Box. They are now very difficult to find in such pristine condition. You can find them cheaper on Gunbroker, but not in any better condition. I paid over $900.00 for it and I also paid $295.00 for the custom digital winter cerakoting. I am asking $885.00 for the Daewoo if we can do a face to face, or $925.00 if shipped to your FFL. I will also include four Daewoo magazines. The Winchester was purchased off of Gunbroker in pristine condition. I sent it to a gunsmith in South Carolina, who added the Saw Grip, the Mako Stock, the fiber optic sight and the Mesa Tactical Enidine recoil absorbing system. He did the duracoating and test fired five rounds through the shotgun. I have way too much money in this gun. With the cost of the shotgun, the parts and duracoating, I have well over $800.00 into the Winchester. I am asking $500.00 for a face to face or $540.00 shippped to your FFL.I accept cash, U.S. Postal Money Orders or certified bank funds. If you have any questions, send me a p.m. These are listed elsewhere. Thanks,WJ "Let us speak courteously, deal fairly, and keep ourselves armed and ready." Theodore Roosevelt, May 13, 1903.1
  18. Oh, yes, I miss riding. I have some great memories of riding that snowmobile and my dirt bikes. When we lived in Arkansas a few years ago, I bought another dirt bike and a quad. Unfortunately, I was not as good a rider as I used to be and was much more timid a rider than I was at 14 through 24 and healed much slower. Getting old is not for the faint of heart. WJ
  19. Two weeks to Sweden! I should have bought the car in the summer!

      I am sure you will have a blast, your honor. Yes it is cold there, but they have pretty good beer. I lived there for about a year 15 years ago. beautiful country, and stockholm is an amazing city...

      Are you buying a Volvo in Sweden, kinda like the BMW delivery program where you go to Germany & drive it on the Autobahn, then they ship it to the states?

      Yes, we are using Volvo's overseas purchase program. They give you free airfare and one nights hotel and a tour of the factory. Then, we bought a side trip, through Volvo, to Stockholm. You can custom order the car, too. However, mine is not very custom, other than their two tone leather is not normally installed in their white cars.

  20. Good stuff. Back in the day (my day, which was a long time ago) I had a Yamaha 433, which I rode all over Dewitt, Gaylord, Grayling and Sault Ste Marie. It was rock solid reliable and if I lived anywhere near a place with significant snowfall, I'd buy another. WJ
  21. I would trade one of my S-12s for one of Tx-Zen's S-12s. WJ
  22. I have a used Sig Sauer rear diopter sight for sale. This has been mounted, but it in excellent condition. These go for $222.00 on the Sig Sauer web sight. http://www.sigsauer....4&productid=301 WTS for $105.00 shipped. I am not interested in trades. I'll take payment by Pay Pal, or money order. Thanks, WJ
