Re: Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch........

Even in training we never counted, we pulled the pin threw, then chanted " 1,2 down".

My first live throw, I threw, then in the same fluid motion went to ground,

"Get UP! Get UP!" from the Tower.

"GET DOWN"

BOOOM!!

I did better the second time :bigsmile:

That nasty, forend destroying square on stock bolts.

The SMLE is one of the few service rifles, or any rifle, that has a built-in wrecker of forends, in the square on the end of the stock bolt. I was writing about this on another forum and remembered that when it was discussed on here that one of the earlier carbines had the same feature, but I can't ...

"London murder rate overtakes New York's" BBC News on the 1st April, but it doesn't seem to be a joke. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-43610936 Not gun murders, for which we should be thankful but people are dead none the less. Britain will have to bring in stricter knife laws.

Inflation.

Example: When it is cheaper to drill holes in coins to make washers than to spend the coins to buy the same diameter washers.

Of course, it's illegal in most places to deface coins, lucky those who live where the coinage already has a hole in the centre.

I had one of my, not unusual, strokes of genius and remembered two half used tins of black polish that'd gone hard, did a remelt of the softer polish and combined the black polish, turned out well by the looks of it, not set yet.

Re: I don't know what the real answer to crazy mass killers is

The very best way to stop an armed killer is someone with a gun, as teachers are in the immediate line of fire, are on the spot (in more ways than one), then they should be allowed to carry a pistol for the defence of their students and themselves. There is not much point in throwing their cell phon...
