Re: D.C.: Al Franken resigns - he made me laugh for the first time.

He didn't resign. He said he "will resign in the coming weeks." My bet is that if Roy Moore wins in AL, Franken will withdraw that statement claiming that he won't go unless Roy Moore goes too. The Dems urged Franken to resign so they could claim the moral high ground by claiming he "...

Re: Another Meme Thread

I am not missing a sense of humor. This thread has "scope crept" multiple times. I didn't come to the TexasCHLForum to see "meme pics" of either political party bashing, or being bashed by, others. I came for firearms-related "stuff". That doesn't sound like I don't ha...

Re: Adios Academy

I think with every day, I'm lucky to be above ground as I'm well past the 'sell by date' of my life. In my family we tend to croak early... My Dad died at 58 if that indicates much and I'm quite a bit beyond that age. Don't count on living some imagined X numbers of years left either. Your number (...

Re: Congress Passes Bill For Sale Of Milsurp 1911 Pistols Through CMP

From the CMP FAQ: (same should apply to the 1911's) Q? Do I need to get preapproved or send paperwork in advance to purchase rifles from the CMP? A. CMP has four requirements for purchase: age over 18, US citizenship, firearms related activity, and membership in a CMP affiliated organization. You ca...

Re: Things and Sayings That Annoy!

Have fun at your next corporate meeting/seminar. Play Bull Bingo. Make a Tic Tac Toe board (9 squares), and in each square write in one of the following: 1. At the end of the day 2. Price Point 3. Return on Investment 4. Literally 5. Per se 6. If you will 7. Basically 8. Think outside the box 9. Giv...

Another Office 365 Problem

Didn't want to hijack Charles' thread on Office 365 so I'm posting a new one. The other day my Outlook 365 decided it wont send any emails. I can receive, but when I hit send, it goes to my outbox and then a popup asks for my password. I put it in, but it just keeps popping up again. I confirmed my ...

Re: Do NOT play in the flood waters - Harvey

So far in this thread we have "red" firearms, and "read" ones. I have neither :biggrinjester: Mods: remove the useless "Preview" button on the Post a Reply page, as it appears that no one uses it. :mrgreen:

Re: Antifa training manuals

Doubt that was the situation. If the reports are correct, I suspect likely mechanical failure which didn't leave time for a distress call. WP reports the Bell 407 helicopter was at 2300 feet traveling at 34mph and had a "vertical flight path" of 45 degrees as it descended "into the t...

Re: Glen Campbell Passes Away

Had the pleasure of seeing Glen in concert at Bass Hall and later at Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth not too many years ago. Not only an amazing guitar player, but a heck of a bagpiper too. The one thing I liked about the live concerts was that Glen stayed true to the original tunes and did not "modif...

Re: NS Canada: Homeowner charged after armed robbers enter his home

Maybe they should change the name of the country to "Comedia." Then they could be called "Comedians." Closer to reality. First 8-10 million paid to a terrorist, now this :confused5

Re: Ground Speed please

From the world of the really sloooooow... Having spent most of my adult life as a helicopter pilot, there are hundreds of funny radio calls heard over that time. One that sticks out in my memory is when we were flying for Exxon on the Exxon Valdez oil spill and cleanup. Valdez airport was a major pi...

There's actually two kinds of Deagles. The Desert Eagle, and the round ones like a ball, sometimes called a "Ball Deagle." :biggrinjester:
