Re: Orphaned FAL lower

... *lightbulb* Start getting the parts together to build it into a complete rifle again, of course! :mrgreen: But of course! What other thoughts could there have been? :txflag: Mais bien sûr! I can't read that phrase without hearing it in my mind with a "Hollywood" French accent so harsh it makes ...

If you insert "rich, wearing trashed topsiders" that sounds like most of the private marinas/yacht clubs on the ICW.

Re: Seatbelt Ticket

Of course speed isn't the only thing that makes racing what it is. I've had a little success in sail regattas. Amazing how intense the competition and complex the tactics can be at eight knots.

Re: Slugs thru a "TARGET" barrel

What about acquiring a classic? Find a pre-owned Drilling or Cape Gun? Plenty of reach in the rifle barrel with the shot option just a trigger pull away! Or, and I must say this is very exciting news, a new, yes New!, Holland & Holland Paradox Gun in 12 bore! H&H have reinvigorated the Paradox Gun ...

Re: One song that "speaks" to you

So, I went back to check an early post on this this thread and found that all my video links had died a horrible death! I set to editing to bring them back and made an existential discovery! I'm not nearly as witty or erudite as I think I am after having a wee dram or two. Needless to say editing to...

Re: A Personal view from a Foreigner

Re: Cocoa flavanols associated with improved memory in seniors

The article stated the beneficial flavanols were destroyed in the normal processing of cocoa beans. Mars, Inc created the beverage used in the study so as to preserve the flavanols.
Another example of why I wished Mars was a publicly held company.
