All, the hallowed hall with the Wall of Shame. Lets put my picture, right ....there.... Sat through the hurricane with power for most of it. Lost power around 1p local. At 5p decided it was time to wake the Genny up. Rolled it out back, and cranked it up. Enjoyed the power and fans and freezer... f...

Re: Who of us volunteers, what do you do?

Up until three years ago when I suffered some serious nerve damage that left me disabled, I was a very active member of the local ham radio community and the county EmComm team (part of fire & rescue). When the 5.8 earthquake hit the national capital region in 2011 I was less than a mile from the ep...

Re: Have you had to draw your concealed carry, and why?

Twice, both back when I was young and stupid, neither of which I can talk about here because both times I was carrying illegally (damn near impossible to get a carry permit in NYC, then or now) and we have strict rules here about discussing illegal activities.

When we move the locks will all be rekeyed to a brand new set of keys and those will be given to the person who buys the house, through their agent. We'll also be leaving behind a "Welcome ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

" illegally manufactured and sold" I'm going to guess it involved an 80% or some other sort of homebuilt lower with no serial #. You can home build all you want for personal use, but you can't sell the resulting firearms. And you can't manufacture any guns for sale without an 07 FFL. And anything y...

The van has been paid off. In preperation for sale, I cleaned it out & found $82.00 in a bank envelope, inside the Owner's Manual. Also, there was a CD in the radio all this time.

I saw a little blurb on the news about the shooter about an hour or so ago, so I figured I'd update this thread. Apparently, the Odessa killer got fired from his job a couple hours or so before he began his rampage. Not sure if that's what set him off and was the catalyst for the rampage or if some...

I suspect they chose "the military" because it is the part of the government which still commands the most respect in society.

Good idea to try to provide some truth, worst possible execution to put the military in charge of it.
