  1. So what do you see as options? Destroy all AR/AK style pistols? Dismantle them and keep parts separated? Keep using them? Since the majority, I think anyway, are intended for HD, vehicle carry, or range use; where does this leave us? Sell off to any willing buyer? Not sure if I would sell off anything right now. And what of the parts I'm sure many have? Uppers and lowers I don't immediately see as a problem. Braces and short barrels as components could be an issue. I'm sure there are other items that will need to be scrutinized in the wake of this threat to us. At this point, I'
  2. Why oh why do all your great holster deals have to be thumb-break models? lol I know the reasons for them, I just prefer without. But both your recent offerings have been great and very tempting. GLWS
  3. Very nice HS! Made in the era when High Standard was the TOP DOG in 22 target and plinking guns. I own several HS pistols and can say you will not be disappointed in having one of these in your safe!
  4. Well...if you like CZ weapons...you can't be too bad a guy! Welcome to TGO.
  5. Terry, I really can't tell you more than you've already been told here, but I can make a small comment. My late brother-in-law was a collector of knives. The more exotic the better...with one caviat. It absolutely HAD to be one of 2 things. Made by someone he knew and respected, and not be a commercially produced model with 1000s+ made of each one. I can tell you that he owned several Thomsen knives and they were among his favorites. Some years back, he bought and sold knives personally, and knew many of the "old guard" as he called them in the Knife Guilds. So his standards were ver
  6. For that I'll pass. Anyway, does the Health Dept. charge for the testing? I really don't know, as I've avoided those long lines. lol
  7. I bought a Craftsman knockoff at Sam's Club a few years back. A big sucker. A 2piece with a total of 14 drawers. Had been looking, like you, just for something to make a centralized area for tools. Long story short. Sam's had it at 1k. Ouch! Found a few dents in it and asked for the manager to talk about a discount. After a few minutes conversation, he offered to sell it at 400. I took it. The moral. Look for damage and ask for discounts.
  8. Welcome back! I still have some of the canes you made. Gave most as gifts to family. Sadly, 3 of the them have passed on. Did you curse them? LOL Just a joke. They were much liked and appreciated when given.
  9. WOW! That is a fancy car! Now...what the heck is it?
  10. These are sooo sweet! I got some time in with one and it's awesome!
  11. Yep! That #2 was gorgeous!! Sorry I wasn't online to see it. Though Lord knows I don't need another GT Knife!
  12. One more try. Surely someone needs this to help calm the kids during this stay at home mess.
  13. In my younger, stupider days, I once tried to separate 2 dogs fighting. A neighbor's dog jumped my Chow. Big Mixed breed that didn't seem to like anyone or anything. So it jumped on Cody one day as we were walking the yard. Sudden and vicious. Somehow, I got Cody away from the other dog, but in the process it latched onto my hand. I felt like a feather being blown in the wind. Couldn't really control any movement. I just kept swatting at the dog until his owner got into the mix and got me loose. Had it not been colder weather and me wearing some old insulate gloves, it co
  14. Good plans, from what little I know. I have a few parts that I got from my late brother-in-law. Don't remember exactly what at the moment, but there's a huge barrel with what looks like a .50 cal brake on it. I think I've had in my mind a 45 AR since I first saw a 9. lol Maybe before I kick off.
  15. Thanks, I had hoped to come, and see some family as well while there; but just didn't get organized in to to make it happen. And I didn't even get to the RK show in Lebanon either. Wasted day! lol Actually doing cleanup and husbandly chores instead.
  16. EXCELLENT choice! My wife loves it! Of course it might have something to do with the fact the first time she heard it was when my college roomie came out of the shower in a towel and dancing around to it. lol
  17. Glad you got it! But let's hear more about the AR45 build. I've been really wanting one.
  18. Should I say how ridicilously easy it is to drill a hole in the safe to run a power cord? Yes. I use the silicone gun socks as well. I forgot those. lol I feel that they work very well.
  19. I have a small room I use in the garage. Heater for cold weather. I try for 50 degrees in the room. I have Golden Rod dehumidifiers in the safe. Also use the portable, rechargeable units as well. I shoot to keep humidity around 50% in the safes. During hot/humid weather' I run a box fan to keep air circulating and a room dehumidifier. Also have a vent for the attic with turbine fan above to help vent the heat. Just my methods where we live. It works for me.
  20. Thanks to Defender and Links2k for the information. Depending on the next few months, I'll see if I have the inclination or the need to fly anywhere.
