Re: Kimber Ultra Carry II won’t cycle properly

A good friend of mine bought his first non-plinking pistol this week. He has wanted a Kimber for a long time and finally did it. He and I went to the range today so he could test it out. We ended up going through about 50 rounds of it before we gave up. Each round went bang properly, only less than...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

Before we all light our butts on fire and run in circles with panic, let's not forget that the VAST MAJORITY of people who get this virus will be just fine and likely will show little to no symptoms. Of personal interest to me is the 7.3% mortality among diabetics(based on credible US an internatio...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

As a healthcare worker, working directly on COVID, and a Type 1 diabetic x 47 years, I am not terribly interested in the "rights" of people to congregate and wank their jaws. If you are symptomatic, you have probably been shedding virus for several days before you knew anything was going on. Hoardin...

Absolutely true. It could, however, pretty easily wipe out 90+% of the population greater than 70 y...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

If you will note: most of the spread in First World nations is because of the, "I Have The Right," syndrome. If one chooses to go on a cruise, travel, etc., at the moment, one has decided to risk spreading a fairly virulent disease. Sit down, stay clean & safe. It would be far better to see the gran...

2. If we don't flatten the curve , hospitals will be overwhelmed by the ~10% of victims that will require hospital care. The stories you're reading about doctors choosing who to treat and who to let die in Italy are not fake news. Italy has excellent healthcare, they just don't have the capacity. T...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

If you do get infected, there is utterly NOTHING anybody can do about it. No treatment, nothing. The alvioli in your lungs will gradually stop passing oxygen into the blood, and you will simply die.... or... you won't. Period. All you can do is lay there and wait. You are helpless. No, not true.

The governor also said the decision reflects a recommendation from Zucker. "In a situation like this, whether you're president, mayor, or governor, let the experts decide," Cuomo said. "And let the science drive the decision. When you politically interfere in science, that's when you tend to make a...

Re: My down the road neighbor's dilemma!

Send it back to Taurus. They should fix it for free. Yes, the turnaround may take a while to get it back from Georgia. But he will then have a working revolver. No, he won't. It's a Taurus. :???: Seriously, if you ,like him, help him get it sent in, then sell it FTF for $250-300, and buy something ...

There are manymanymanymany people, who have very little knowledge, trying to get facetime on this. It is (tongue in cheek) nothing to sneeze at, neither is it likely to be the end of the Free World, as we know it. For a variety of reasons,however, it does have the potential to be the end of the Prog...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

I'm not buying the "no big deal" propaganda. This 30 year doctor in CA who is treating COVID19 patients seems to think it's a really big deal. Article here . North Korea is lying foreign diplomats out of the country and there are reports of hundreds of deaths among soldiers who are not elderly or i...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

IF the numbers and severity reports we're hearing now were true, I would agree with you. However, I have serious doubts about both of those. China would not have shut down their industrial production and devastated their economy for somewhere around 3K deaths - that's a number they'd hardly notice....
