    Lost another Music legend!!

    Sadly, been there, done that. I saw/heard The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in a concert at TTU in the early 70's
  2. Amen brother. It takes more steady nerve, fast thinking, and strong will than I have. Need steady temperament as well. I don't have that either. I go from easy going to full-blown, red hot nuts in a split second. I've worked hard over the years to learn control of it, but still don't have it to the degree necessary for this calling.

    RMR All The Things! (M&P M2.0 Compact)

    Could be that is the case. I found the angle of holding to get the red dot on target to be a bit disconcerting. Enough so that I just stopped using the RMR. I have seen comments to suggest that we older guys with weakening eyesight have trouble adjusting to the RMR on pistols. Perhaps that influenced my decision as well.
  5. Life Member here, and have been for quite a long while. I considered the Endowment Level, but decided to send a little money to NAGR and GOA with that and sort of spread it around.

    You most certainly are a man of infinite good judgment and with a discerning ear for great music. Just when I think I've picked a favorite...usually Up on Cripple Creek. I'll go back to The Last Waltz and pull the best from it up... The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down/Ophelia/The Shape I'm in/Life is a Carnival/...and of course...The Weight. Yes, probably the best know from The LGD Band, but arguably some of their absolute best.

    This project of yours is tempting me to try an RMR pistol again. I wasn't really thrilled my my G34. Maybe I'll try again.

    I could begin to dislike you very, very much. I remember that from our trip trip into Arizona some years back. I liked it.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. That's a beauty! And I'm saving my pennies for another BHP.

    I like your comments. I had to find that particular version and listen again. I'm sure I've heard it before, but didn't place it immediately. But I'm a diehard fan of The Band in all their many incarnations. lol The Weight is just, for me, "Owned" by The Band. JMO For me, it just doesn't get any better than Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm. Truthfully, I probably like Levon more than any other band members. I was torn up seeing how he looked in Shooter, and teared up badly on the news of his passing. Not dissing Aretha Franklin at all. She was a lady of huge talent. No question of that at all. But I really think of her in The Blues Brothers with Think. That just is classic Aretha.

    I feel dirty.

    Over the last 5/6 years, I have bought 3 tool carts from HF. My wife keeps grabbing them for her crafts supplies and as a rolling work table. They've held up very well, and the price was great. Always got them at sale times. Usually around 130 otd. I have bought one of the US General boxes for my assorted tools in the shed and her workshop. Both good enough for my use. But my real storage for bigger tools is a 5 drawer file cabinet. It works great. Paid 60 for it at a salvage store. Wish there had been a few more at that price, I'd line the attached garage wall with them.
