Re: New uniforms...........

Looks like somebody hired a fashion director to attract recruits. The bus driver hat ....in green...was around when Vern and I were in the Army, with a spongy inch thick coil in the roll of the top to keep edges flared out.

Re: At it again.....

From what I see online bump stocks cost about $200. That means a 25% loss on investment..... if turned in and money received. And.....as you say.....a list of those who turned one in will be on file as being a gun fancier one step beyond hunter and therefore somehow a potential suspect for potential...

There are only three left in the world out of a few thousand made by Japan in WWII. One will reside at Battleship park in Mobile thanks to a gift.

Re: A new firearms bill in the wash

What about an extra background checks for guns sold over the internet?

A new firearms bill in the wash

One new bill got out of the House of Representatives today but will find tough going in the Republican controlled Senate. The U.S. House passed a bill Wednesday that would expand background checks for those wanting to purchase firearms. The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 passed 240-190, wi...

How to fly a B-25 Mitchell medium bomber

This is a left over from 1944 instructional movie of how to fly a B-25. Notice how a ground crew guy stands by with a super sized fire extinguisher when the engines are started....shows you how much faith the Navy, that used them at least once, famously, off of aircraft carriers, and the Army Air Co...
