  1. Now I am wondering about Riley Defense, AK's manufactured in the USA in Charlotte NC. Anybody have any experience with them? I am thinking if all the parts are built here to be compliant in the first place, no replacing, swapping, etc., theoretically shouldn't the gun work more reliably?
  2. I see a lot of negativity about Century Arms, but I am seeing as the WASR Romanian Cugir as being considered decent components. I think there are some Century WASR and some non-WASR. Would that make the Century WASR a decent, reliable gun? I want reliable and nothing I have to carve away to make it work.
  3. There are a couple of nice AK's like you describe on Atlantic Firearms. I know nothing about them and I am hesitant to purchase because of that. Any experience with them?
  4. You might need to tell me the best way to do that. I do not have a lot of experience wood staining, I am betting you did a light, fine sand first to remove any finish, and then a rub of a stain?

  6. I know someone who might have one of these. What is a good price?
  7. There must be a run on these right now, many are out of stock. Is it just the AK's or is there a run on all semi-auto rifles right now? Century's seem to be the few that I can find in stock for the configuration I want. PSA has a few in stock, but mostly polymer and pistols. I wanted the metal with wood furniture, although a folding stock might not be bad if that is all I can find.
  8. AK 47. I do not know what brands/makes/countries are better than others. I really want to keep the price down without loosing qualify. I see Century Arms makes one for a reasonable price but are they any good? Any other suggests without breaking the bank? I want reliable, inexpensive if such a beast exists.
  9. Absolutely, on why they post tatoo's. Sometimes people can look entirely different in person or in a picture, but tatoo's are pretty uniquely identifying, kind of like a serial number.
  10. Done. Prayers for your daughter, you and your family.
  11. Hi! The View Pics link does not take me to pictures, just an auction listing. I tried rooting around with the ID number and such, with no luck. Do you have a link that would take me directly to the pictures?
  12. Does anyone know if the Sevierville Convention Center is posted? I am heading over there today for the RV show. I will find out soon enough, but if I had a "heads up" first, that would be great!

    Birds!

    Budgies are so full of life and often times humor and laughter! They are fun to have around, unless you do not like the chatter. They are much lower maintenance, and a lot less screechy than the sun conure Esko 270 has, lol. Even if the cats are mostly uninterested, never leave them alone within reach of the Budgies. Even being playful, cats saliva can be toxic to budgies and other birds. Since you bought a pair of budgies, they have company and that is a good thing! In brief, if I could recommend anything else, never quickly pull back your finger or create any drama if it looks like the budgie might bite you. The drama will reinforce the biting behavior. Most birds are actually taught to bite by the dramatic pull back of a finger and a loud "ouch". They will happily learn to stand on your finger. Just be very patient. They will quickly learn that your hand in the cage means "food", that is a good thing! Over time, extend a finger and watch their reaction. Slowly, over time, desensitize them to seeing your extended finger. Work it closer to where their chest curves down to their feet until they tolerate your finger being held against them. This could be difficult if one bird is friendly and the other is skittish. The skittish one can unravel what you are doing with the friendly one, if the skittish one gets too upset and enters the drama zone. Years ago, I had a parakeet that was very well hand/shoulder trained. He used to ride around on my shoulder all day. I had a portable radio boom box and I would stand the handle up like a perch, put the parakeet on the handle, and crank up some rock and roll. He would scream, dance, bob, and run back and forth on the handle to the music! He looked forward to a musical dance session every day! Most of the parrot type birds love music, everything from classical to rap. Also read up on clipping their flight feathers, if you are planning on taking them out of their cage. Sometimes they can sneak out on you and if they get out of the house, they will keep happily flying toward the sky. You can only clip the flight feathers at certain times. When they are new feathers, they have blood/veins in them and the bird will bleed to death if you clip them at the wrong time. Birds only have a tiny bit of blood, so just seeing a tiny bit can mean a critical situation. If you are uncertain, just don't do it. And keep a styptic pen as part of your budgie first aid kit.
