  1. I think you have more problems than a bad inst. Cluster.
  2. I absolutely luv it!
  3. We have a new gunshop and firing range that went in about 25 miles from here. I may consign some for sale. I really don't have a need of 8 shotguns, really never did, but I made several good trades.
  4. We had a family of field mice move in to the utility room and pantry while I was in rehab. I am using D-con and traps. Also had ants invade , Ortho Defender worked on them, the ants were eating the meecees in the traps, DUHHH!
  5. My wife is really concerned about she should do with my firearms collection (28 rifles, pistols and shotguns) an my collection of ammo, tools etc., etc. She don't think our kids should have them, she thinks..."They would probably sell it off for pennies on the dollar". The ones that shoot have plenty already. Go thru a gun shop?, use an auctioneer?, place adds in gun magazines? or web sites? Trust some friend or relative? I would like to see your views and opinions on this
  6. By no means am I anything but a novice on the AR platform. My assumption is that the spring loaded tiny detent pin's sole function is to retain the buffer and spring captive while the upper is tilted up when the rear assembly pin is pulled to tilt the upper to service the BCG Why not remove the detent and slide the upper back on the lower and push the buffer and spring into the receiver buffer tube, and insert the assembly pins as they line up? Would it be possible to have a path up thru the lower,so that a slave rod could be inserted to hold the buffer and spring in full rearward position,then remove the rod after assembling and pinning the upper and lower? I know it isn't easy but it may be possible.
  7. Pretty eyes!.....eh?
  8. I must just be too dense to understand "cut a hole in the box." DUUUUHHHH!
  9. Wonderful pictures, of some wonderful aircraft! FIFI looks as good or even better than when I first saw her in Midland at CAF headquarters where I was a CAF Col. back in the 1980s thru 2005 when we moved to Lake Proctor full time. It is good to see her with "Doc" I am glad you got to go to the Holy Grail of all air shows. It is a life changing event! Yeah, the Confederate Air Force changed it's name to 'yucky old Commemorative" , after it became a worldly organization, and more "politically correct" Yankee moneyed folks had the control of the board of directors. Money is the motivating force now.
  10. When I bought my DPMS Oracle.308 in 2014 from a local gun dealer I asked him to install a front sling swivel, he pulled the Hand guard and screwed in a QD swivel base and put the hand guards back on in 5 minutes and didn't charge me. If you will check out BeachinTactical, he is a sponser on this site. He makes a very neat custom sling. I have two of them. I agree, you should get the rifle in your hands, lube it up, scope it boresight it, go to the range shoot 40 or 50 rounds get familiar with the piece. ..... Clean it,.....next thing, get a Velocity trigger, a Tubbs flat wire buffer spring and see how much of a accurate shooter it makes you. Come back here and tell us your thoughts.
  11. Don't ever wear shorts around these guys
  12. Tastes kinda like a tuna taco with natural juices.
  13. Welcome from another Texan, in Central Texas
  14. The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a saloon and sat down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said "Who owns the big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said, "I do....Why?" The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, "I just thought you’d like to know that your horse is about dead outside!" The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and sure enough Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said,"Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better. Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe" and took off running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the saloon to finish his drink. A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks,"Who owns that big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, "I do, what's wrong with him this time?" (..I JUST LOVE THIS PART..) "Nothing, but you left your injun runnin!"
  15. It is like nothing being heard at all!
