  1. I got a scope mounted on my M1A. Now to get it zeroed BF
  2. Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! wally I don't know what you're looking for, but for $40, a good used US medium ruck it right in the neighborhood of your price range. There is no better bag for the money. Then I checked Amazon and they don't seem to have milsurp equipment but while looking I did find this: https://www.amazon.com/CVLIFE-Military-Rucksacks-Tactical-Backpack/dp/B017VY9GMU/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1493098383&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=milsurp++medium+rucksack 4 star out of 25 reviews isn't too bad for the money! BF
  3. While I will admit that Elmer was a puffed up blowhard and braggart, I also have to admit that he is one of my heroes in spite of it. I have 4 of his books and have read each of them more than once. I truly believe that Smith & Wesson would have gone the way of the Dodo if it had not been for the collaboration with Keith. BF
  4. snake, I have to agree! Cool site by the way. Was fun browsing it. BF
  5. TP, those roundbutt's are the bee's knees for keeping you and your friend safe on any Saturday night! Hope you can get'em pictured sometime. Would love to take a gander at'em! BF
  6. Drew, my heart just sped up! You have, in my opinion, the epitome of double action revolvers! I have had the opportunity to shoot a Python in one hand and a 27 in the other, my preference fell to the Smith. My hat's off to you! That's the Queen of Hearts in any deck! Would that be good in any hand? You bet! But then you gotta draw the Ace of Spades! I never understood why S&W ever fooled with the 25 in 45acp but 45 Colt!!! I fold! The only 45 Colt's I have are a pair of Colt's and the site won't let me upload them. BF
  7. The 5" is just about as perfect as you can get, as far as I'm concerned! BF
  8. Are you kidding!! They are ALL special! BF
  9. 210, the 5" barrel on a S&W 28 or 27 has always been my dream DA revolver. Long enough for accuracy and velocity and short enough not to be unwieldy. Hope you can get the pictures to work, I'd love to see'em, specially the 686 BF
  10. Oh! and I always lead with the ibuprofen, usually I get "What's that for?" Your headache and I always pray for "But I don't have a headache..."
  11. LOL! What can I say, I've always been a wannabe ladies man. BF
  12. Actually Don, there are 5. All of my partners except 1 are over 60 and she's getting close enough that it's fun to tease her. My old consent form was over 3 pages and I had to explain what a lot of it was. LOL! But anyway it was fun putting this little kit together
  13. I'll take three. Model 15 686 Mod 30 32S&W Long BF
  14. I guess you folks just don't enjoy porn as much as I. LOL! S&W 19 & 17
  15. Nope, sure don't but then, I'm a new guy. Welcome back anyway. BF
  16. Thread has gotten a bit slow:
  17. With a power supply, a magnetic mount car antenna on a pizza pan on top of the refrigerator will get you going with local traffic. The pan and refrigerator will serve as the ground plane instead of the vehicle. The higher antenna the better. BF
  18. Jeanine should be the next appointee for the U.S. Supreme Court. BF
  19. A caliber I've always wanted to try and after your successes, I may have to look harder for a test subject. Nice work! BF
  20. Snake, wad columns and over shot cards have been my nemesis for decades. I'll buy the coffee sometime if you'd teach me how to build a proper column. BF
  21. Snake, the United Stats has a war driven economy and the REALLY BIG money understands that fact and are using small parts of that really big money to buy support and create a need for weapons and weapon systems. Project overruns are built into the system. The lawmakers get rich by approving the overruns. The war machine MUST have conflict somewhere to create demand for their product. Simple solution, create law that FORBIDS our representation from accepting ANY funding beyond their salary and donations from THEIR CERTIFIED CONSTITUANTS. The only problem with that is that hell will have glaciers before that would ever pass. BF
  22. Thank you. While I hate the appearance of the H&G 68, I've never met a 45 that didn't love'em. This is the mold that I have settled on, all of my 45's love it. My alloy, checked and lubed weight out at about 250gr. (mine is an older mold) along with a healthy dose of 231, I haven't been able to improve on it at all. BF
  23. Most accurate description I've heard BF
