  1. I wanted a QD rail that could take a pounding with heavy optic if need be so I built this to my own spec. This is on a early CIA thumb hole Imbel that I picked up off GB. Now, its reconfigured the way I want it! The blank and the starter..... zero tolerance recoil plate a cap to be welded over the stud extension yet. All friction fit The rear sight peep slide will be mod-ed into rear lock down latch over the 2 extensions. Good thing the bolt cover top radius is exactly a 1/2" ball nose cut under the base. I guess this is one of those challenges that I had to sink my imagination into. That's the rear base in the raw. now the front hand guard is Israeli Light Rifle with a custom fabed accessory rail I cobbed out of a cheap China AR handguard. The gas tube rings are made from aluminum bar stock & milled to fit the hollow channel under the rail. Also, I fit a steel front end to recoil up against the steel vented hand guard. Now for the finished unit with a fabed up L1A1 flip up peep made to fit the rail that is windage adjustable. Rear base lock in open position. Locked up rock solid... I wanted a flip out handle that could be popped out with the flick of a finger or edge of the hand so I welded the handle locking edge out quite a bit more so it sticks out just enough to get at easy but still lives nicely in an over stuffed safe. The scope base/cover slides off & on the receiver to perfect zero no matter what. The Century Imbel Franken is exactly what I want built over a first gen DSA Alloy lower. Now it can keep my SAR48 company!

  2. Mine was a few hours ago. Working thru the rationalization still. I did not buy an original select fire rifle that was NIB. I agonized for for nearly 2 hours over buying or not buying. Price was actually pretty reasonable, though not inexpensive. The last 10 minutes on GB, entered my bid in the box...and no less than 6 times hovered on the bid button. Held back each time by all the reasons I concocted not to. Now I'm rationalizing the non practical aspects and that it was not the actual military version I really would want. Countered with I'll never see one NIB again, made more rare by only 450 having been original select fire guns. The military variant aspect is offset by knowing it would be quite a bit more, which makes its eventual selling price seem like a deal in today's market. At the moment, the remorse over not getting something of a rarity is overwhelming the relief of not spending such a big nut a single gun that I know would not get run full auto much. The seller has my contact info, I asked him to let me know if the buyer does not follow up, though I know that wont probably happen. Hope your regrets pass quickly. Or better yet, you avoid them all together!

  6. Comcast told me the same thing when I call them and told them the last rate hike was the last straw and the lady said but you have been with us 16 years and give me just a minute and let me see what I can do. She came back on and said good news, we can cut your bill by 68.00 and I said if you can do it because I am leaving why didn't you just do it to keep me happy in the first place and I took their equipment to them the following day. Now I have moved and as of now I'm using new smart TV's in two rooms on outside HD antenna and on January 10th I will have a brand new Fiber Optic company that has been working all summer to bring service to this area. The package I picked from their offers has the same channels I had with Comcast and their bill is what I was paying Comcast 15 years ago. package I picked is 59.95 for 150 channels +4.95 for each box and I have 2 TV's. I can't wait!!!!

  10. My last purchase was a couple years ago. I purchased 2 MP 9C 2.0 pistols. They are a tween size, although they are called compacts. Mine has the 4" brl and holds 15 rounds. Purchased them to carry which I do in a Aherns belt slide OWB holster, and a Crossbreed IWB, with sweat shield. When IWB I always use a cover garment. I do not like open carry. Works for me. I still pocket carry my 38Spl/357Mag 7 shot 2" brl, revolver, always. Keep Cor Bon DPX in the revolver, and Remington Golden Saber in the M Ps.

  11. "It’s never seen the kind of popularity achieved by the .40S&W cartridge that came out four years prior." Whaaaaat?? How can that be? Joking aside, His comments about the psychological effects are spot on (IMO). My distrust for the 9MM and .380 doesn’t come from ballistic tests; it comes from what I have seen with my own eyes, coupled with science. Also, if someone that has never been in, or seen a shooting, is told enough that a 9mm is the best self defense round made; they may start to believe it. Even to the point where they disregard other things they know; like physics. And people that have been in shootings, and the round they used, did exactly what it was supposed to do; that’s the ultimate proof for them, what else could they possibly need. We've seen stories of well placed shots with a .45ACP failing to stop a person; there are many variables. I never had any reason to try .357SIG. It was a high price designer round that never caught on, much like the 10mm. The only real claim I ever saw was barrier penetration, shooting through a car door or through a windshield. The downside for me was the necked case; feeding short rounds in a handgun is already an issue without throwing that in on top of it; no need to risk it. But I don't see any problem with the .357SIG being able to get the job done.

  12. Howdy neighbor.... I did the same thing years ago with Optimum Online. Your post is almost verbatim for what they told me. For decades of service, they take and give very little in return. They took away all the outdoor channels that involved guns. Tell me they are not pro2a... Blah! Not just Comcast though. Every company pulls the same crap as a last ditch effort to not lose a customer. What I really hate with Comcast Xfi, which I still have is this cable game they play like the others. They take one channel that they know people may like and stick it in a package you do not have. I have mine set up with a favorite list. One day I went to TCM for example and it said you must subscribe to it. I already HAD it, now I have to pay to see ancient movies? Mind you I have almost every channel they offer. What they do? Stick it in another Sports package. I ripped them a new one. Said WTF does old movies need to be buried in a sport package? Pisses me off. I also have a house phone I never use. I cannot dump it because my month bill will be more. These companies are nuts. I wish I could get rid of most of the channels. I may enjoy about 25 or so. No matter how hard you try to deal with them, its for naught. So I started getting rid of boxes with little activity and changed them out for a Roku box. Xfinity has a streaming app on Roku and it works very well.

  13. Thanks guys. I haven't bought a new box of ammo, with the exception of the Hornady carry rounds in 25 years. But I'll go find some hardball and see how it goes. Thanks Ray

  17. I've reached the point that I don't need anything. I have guns to cover all occasions. So I just buy what I like. Had to think about it. The last compact I got was about a 1 1/2 ago when I traded for a Sig P239. Everything I've bought since has been full size.

  18. I have enabled a new feature in our software that essentially grants everyone limited moderator powers when it comes to reporting content that goes against our community guidelines. This new feature is "Auto Moderation" and is currently set so that if TWO OR MORE PEOPLE report content that falls into one of the following categories... Spam Abusive Content Non-Benefactor Advertising Benefactor Posting in the Wrong Area The content will be automatically hidden until a moderator has a chance to address it. This allows us to keep TGO clean and acknowledges the facts that our best defense has long been our members and that our tireless, hard-working, and insanely dedicated team of volunteer moderators can't be everywhere at once and definitely can't be online 24/7. I will tweak the automation that makes this work behind the scenes to ensure that it isn't used unfairly.

  21. We get by very nice with an outside over the air antenna, 50+ channels with around 20 unique and worth watching, at least some of the time. We add Netflix minimal (1 TV and Standard Res) and last year got the Hulu 99 cents a month deal that just ran out and haven't decided if I should cancel since my wife like some of the programing. Just recently added a Roku and still exploring that (no monthly fees if you stay away from the premium stuff). I feed the antenna to a 4 tuner box hooked to my main computer and use Plex to record and arrange my shows so we can watch what we want when we want an skip commercials.

  24. I think, I'm going to lose my drivers license, and all just because of a stupid police officer... The conversation went like this, when I got pulled over in my car: Officer: "License and registration, please, I think you are drunk!" Me: "I assure you, I did not drink anything." Officer: "Ok, let's do a little test! Imagine driving in the dark on a highway at night, when you see two lights in the distance. What is it?" Me: "A car." Officer:"Of course! But which one? A Mercedes, an Audi or a Ford?" Me:"I have no idea!" Officer:"So, you're drunk." Me:"But I didn't drink anything." Officer:"Okay, one more test -- Imagine, you're driving in the dark on a highway at night, and there is one light coming at you. What is it? Me:"A motorcycle." Officer:"Of course! But which one? A Honda, a Kawasaki or a Harley?" Me:"I have no idea!" Officer:"As I suspected, you're drunk!" Then I started to get annoyed and asked a counter question. Me:"So..., counter question -- You're driving in the dark on a highway at night and see a woman on the roadside. She wears a mini skirt, fishnet stockings, high heeled shoes and only a bra as a top. What is this?" Officer:"A prostitute of course." Me:"Yes, but which one? Your daughter, your wife or your mother?" Things went downhill from there and now I have a court date to attend... .
