  1. Just a bit of real history....
  2. Could be, I've never been to England! But I have got some telephone calls from what looks to be Calcutta, and I recently heard a lot of whinning from Martha's Vineyard.
  3. Are you sure the Narrator wasn't doing the audio from a den in Calcutta, or maybe from Martha's Vineyard?
  4. Yes it is on Kindle books store for $11.99 Electronic version, Tom, did you find what you needed?
  5. Amazon Kindle has this electronic version for $3.99.
  6. No full autos for me a waste of too much ammo, 6 shots from a pump action 12 Ga or a semi auto and the old Winchester model 94 and a 1911.45 auto will will do anything I need done at close range and my LR 308 and my M1 A will do for reach out there and whack someone.
  7. We all have that "special "kind of friend.
  8. Sounds like those vermin got what was coming to them, sorry that it came at probably a worth while monetary expense.
  9. Under indictment for? but not proven guilty by a trial of his peers?
  10. This is kind of like many of the Pro-Abortion activists yelling for Abortions to be free to everyone, I don't think most of the ugly, misshaped ones will ever have a condition that needs an abortion
  11. This is what I call close, a zero minutes set of mounting rings, which works for me, as I use a 3006 bolt action for longer distance than 400 yards.
  12. As a Christian man, I may not want to, but I am required to forgive you for this act...........may God bless you! ( "Vengeance is Mine!", saith The Lord!)
  13. Isn't minute angle of the mount is the amount of vertical angle of change, in minutes , between the bore of the rifle and the bore of the scope? The more minute of angle mounting drops the line of sight of the scope to accommodate the drop of the bullet for long distance shooting. Right? or wrong? https://www.nssf.org/shooting/minute-angle-moa/
  14. Downloaded this onto my Kindle account to all my devices, Desktop, apple smartphone and 3 or four Kindle Fire HD Tablets for $2.99 Thanks for the LINK!
  15. I'm HAPPY, I just ate 4 fat mosquitos!
  16. I just remembered something from years past. .50 BMG primers were used to make .exploding 45 Auto cartridges, by drilling a hole in the nose of flat nose FMJ bullets and using a small drop f JB weld to glue the primers atop a small amount of Black powder . I bought a box of 12 at a gun show. They worked to make a large hole in the trunk of a tree when fired from my 1911 at 20 yards.
  17. We be real cowboys....."Little Boy, big hat riding with Dad after a day at school."
  18. ....AND jest like dat, textknowledge came to the farm.....
  19. Okay, Now....Does anyone wonder why Sweetwater Texas was picked for this as the location for lengthy tale to take place? Sweetwater is the site of: Sweetwater Jaycees Rattlesnake Round-Up SweetwJaycees Rattlesnake Round-Up 2022 Mar 2022 Dates Unconfirmed | Sweetwater, TX
  20. Garden Snakes also known as Garter Snakes can be dangerous Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here’s why. A couple in Sweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze. It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants. When it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa. She let out a very loud scream. garter on board. The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa. He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor. His wife thought he had had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance. The attendants rushed in, would not listen to his protests, loaded him on the stretcher, and started carrying him out. About that time, the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That’s when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital. The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor who volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch.. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief. But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa. The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her. The neighbor’s wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband’s mouth on the woman’s mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches. The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that the snake had bitten him. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man’s throat. By now, the police had arrived. Breathe here…They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little garden snake! The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife. Now, the little snake again crawled out from under the sofa and one of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over, the lamp on it shattered and, as the bulb broke, it started a fire in the drapes. The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car. Meanwhile, neighbors saw the burning drapes and called in the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires, put out the power, and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out).Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car and all was right with their world. A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night. And that’s when he shot her. And now you know why all snakes can be deadly. Hope you enjoyed this joke enough to pass it on to somebody who will laugh as hard as you just did!
  21. No extraction, maybe a rough chamber, I would use a borescope to take pics of the chamber, close the adjustable gas doditty about 1/2 way. do that right away, and like the man said lube up everything back of the chamber with Mobil one 10W40 motor oil dripping wet. I'm not sure that Frittz or JB bore paste will only clear the bad place in the chamber. I would probably contact the barrel builder for another barrel, what with the way too small gas port and the obviously flawed chamber. It just was not done right.
