Re: Sept 23: what's the big deal?

On second thought, I'll be on Netflix watching my favorite war movie, most appropriately titled "Apocalypse now"! :clap:

Sept 23: what's the big deal?

Hooooboy, here we go again! We just got over the whole Mayan Apocalypse mumbo-jumbo. Now here comes another: Sept. 23 and it's less than two weeks away. Went to a source: on-this-day.com. Lots of interesting info such as the Israel-PLO accord, the Jetsons aired for the first time in 1962, Evita Pero...

Re: One day at a mall...

The next day, we found out someone had been murdered at the mall and was on the loose , and that's why all this happened. :shock: You don't normally see that kind of behavior in murder victims. Well, fortunately we know how to handle these situations. 8-) Seriously, though, I'm glad you learned som...

Re: Panic Buying in NYC as Major Snowstorm Set to Hit

Stopped in local supermarket to say hi to a friend. The place is packed! Lots of NYU students panic buying! Funny is they are buying bottled water - their dorms are relatively new and their water system is the best around. College students buying bottled water???? If I was in college, there is no s...

Viper, we had a guy hit 20:00 instead of 2:00 on a burrito, same thing, at school, some time back. When he saw that the burrito had cooked too long, took the (now flaming / smouldering) burrito and ran outside with it. Triggered the whole place's smoke detectors; Fire Department responded. And they...

Re: Anyone ever give up on a caliber?

Am giving up on it as it offers barely anything better than 9mm or .40 other than reliability. Oh and it's pretty expensive too, almost $10 a box m...

The ATF has done things like this in the past but never anything quite this severe. There are concerns that the ATF may one day decide that Saiga shotguns are destructive devices as they have with other mag fed semiautomatic shotguns but at the moment it's all baseless speculation.

Can there be a "friendly fire" gun?

Chuck knocks out a bad guy and steals his rifle. The baddie's boss laughs and says that he can't shoot because the rifle has a transp...

Target has a $10 off $50 coupon for groceries if you get their flyer in today's newspaper. My town has a SuperTarget so they have a decent inventory.

Thug Hunter, a question about guns: it shocks me how much effort crooks go to try to remove serial numbers from stolen guns. Does that make it impossible for you to trace them? My handgun is registered but the stupid manufacturer put the S/N on a PLATE. It would take little effort to pry it off. The...

Re: 13 things (and more) a burglar won't tell you

And, when you get rid of those boxes, rip them up- it's not just easier for the trash man, but safer- you can put them printed side down, instead of advertising your nifty new purchase with the empty box out on the curb. But that doesn't mean they won't poke around inside a trash can. Try to put th...

Re: That Wonderful 2am Pounding on your Door

Not saying people should sit around but I'm just giving my opinion based on a previous experience, if something like this happens (day or night) it's best to NOT even get out of the house. Why? Them drunks might think you're itching for a fight. Just sic the cops on them and let them know if the foo...

Re: What would you do...with your tax return?!

If you're getting a return substantial enough to buy anything of value, I suggest you prep your taxes better next year. Prepping for unlikely events also includes prepping for stolen tax returns. Which happens more and more every year. I'd rather give my money to a bank to hold each paycheck and pa...

Re: What does it take for you to lockdown?

This brings up a major issue: what if you live in an apartment? You can't lock it down. It's simply impossible. The landlord will scream at you if you board up the windows and the windows will probably be set in a very weak frame that has long since rotted. Also, I wouldn't trust the floor to keep t...

Amazon is a great company in many ways. However the price you see when you are not signed in might not be the price you see when you sign in.
