    Far be it for a Coors Light drinker to critique another man's choice, but ye gods man, I now have visions of Billy Dee Williams dancing in my head.

    You'll find everything from Bombay to be a cut above. Just sayin.....

    Oh, yeah! Saw him, Chief J Stongbow, George the Animal Steele, Ivan Putskie, etc. at the Waterville (Maine) Armory back in the '70s as a kid. Had an autographed pic of the Chief--don't know whatever happened to it. Remember the Grand Wizard? My best friend's Dad was a big wrestling fan and took us many times.

    Ha ha, I normally drink "good" beer/ale, but Mother wanted samwiches from the local convenience store (they DO make tastey food) and they don't carry much for imports and Rolling Rock gives me a headache. I DID pass on the Hurricane High Gravity 40s (strained thru dirty underwear and aged for at least 8 hours before bottling).

    Very nice! I was into Contenders back in the day, before the Class III bug bit me. That must be a handful!

    i remembered i poured up a new cup of coffee and left it in the kitchen

    I just edited it to show the blank used, I also had a black powder/shotgun and left room for a rifle barrel later made for another frame that I had color case hardened at the same time.

    This was the blank for that project:

    Here are both frames CCH'd:

    I had enough wood left over for the pistol project that a second fore stock was made to allow it to be used with a bipod.....

    Nope I slung it for a reason as I used to have a cut down M1 with folding pistol stock in 'nam and the sling works well when used behind the elbow of the hand under the fore stock. Good groups at 100 yards too.

    An awesome piece of wood! I'm afraid most of my collection (all gone, now) wore black or brown plastic (though the H&R Reising had a pretty nice piece of walnut and ran wonderfully--a highly mis-maligned submachine gun, IMHO (when properly maintained)).

    University Flake for only the second time. I tried this blend a couple of years ago & was unimpressed. I am afraid I haven't strayed from my first impression much. Just sort of underwhelming.

    Could be... but the new DSM-V takes cultural considerations into account, so over in Hippie Hollow it would not be considered maladaptive behavior... ergo (I've always wanted to say "ergo") it's not a true disorder.

    PO-LEEZ.... yuppie? I prefer to use Cosmic Cowboy as the proper nomenclature - or in the case of PSF, Cosmic Codger.
