      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Catholic Heart Attack A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a store. The store clerks called 911 when they saw him collapse to the floor. The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery. He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital he was taken to. A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clip board loaded with several forms, and a pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment. "Do you have health insurance?" she asked. He replied in a raspy voice, "No health insurance." The nun asked, "Do you have money in the bank?" He replied, "No money in the bank." "Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?" asked the irritated nun. He said, "I only have a spinster sister, and she is a nun." The nun became agitated and announced loudly, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God." The patient replied, "Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law."

    Are you a racist? Do you believe all Puerto Ricans are going to vote Democrcat? As that is akin to stupidity, do you believe all Puerto Ricans are stupid? Have you lumped all Puerto Ricans into one small preconcieved box? Not outing you or anything, but, is your first name Richard? What a dick!!!

    I shot the M16 alot in the USMC 40 years ago. But memories do fade. My son's AR 15 felt right at home except for the scope, 4 or 5 years ago. This new to me and brother AR15 seemed "different". Our discussion and my little research learned me a bunch on these variations.

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ar+15+carbine&view=detail&mid=4918EC26638FC79C18AB4918EC26638FC79C18AB&FORM=VIRE This discussion piqued my curiousity. Brother likely has the carbine and/or the M4 lower. See the video. Carbine gas tube is shorter, closer to the chamber, thus higher pressure. M4 lower has even shorter spring, again, thus higher pressure. Both result in harder recoil.

    The standard AR has a 7 -8 inch spring IIRC, this colapsible seems to have only 5-6 inches of space. Both of us noticed the heavier recoil , though we did not have side by side comparison and niether of us shoot more than 200 rnds a year.

    Really dont know or fuckin care!!! Seems the short spring give s a larger kick. Son's AR was smooth as buttered silk compared to this one. This one will leave the safe 2, 3 times a year for grins. It is black , it is scary, we were both trembling.

    ......but a long stick 335 can hit from a long way in a busy construction site.

    Bro just recieved an AR15 for a gift. Made of all replacement parts. Collapsible stock seems to mean short/stiff compression spring. More kick than I expected!!!!

    The problem with you furriners is that California Penal code is available online. Pretty easy to find online, gooogle is your friend. You could research what restrictions apply if you had an interest. Jeff likely is spot on. Little known fact: Catapillar has a universal key. Other equipment makers the same. It has changed over the years but you want to drive a '70s Cat loader, bulldozer, or any other murderous heavy yellow equipment into a school, shopping center, church or youth center, one key gives you access to any of those evil yellow machines(and they are always parked near most construction sites).

    Well, we have gun nutz threads, gun grabber threads, shootings threads, californicator threads. Did you check any of those
  11. oh Craigslist, you don't disappoint

    Given the lack of quality cup holders in those years, the auto (I thought slushbox was the powerglide) will probably prevent spilling beer while shift, steering and feeling up yer first cousin (it's not weird if she's hot).

    .. those projection makers have had a stellar record in making projections , haven't they? That was the point though AGCC faithful wouldn't get that .

    What is the accuracy of the BOM sensors that generated the data for this graph you keep posting. Is that raw data or has it been "adjusted"?

    I dunno, I ve worked in labs a good part of my life. Are you talking about measurements? I measure 12.8 volts at my battery, we all know that my measuring device indicated 12.8 volts but it could be half a volt off either way. I might add the narrative that the battery was 9.6 before I put a charger on it and know we all know there was a relative improvement. We can agree that the improvement was approximately 3 volts because the tenths accuracy is unimportant, the pertinant is 6 cells nearer full charge. When you talk temperature you still have to be mindfull of the accuracy of the measuring instrument. Seems you dont understand that.

    Are you laughing about the hiatus that existed right up to about 1 month before the Paris Climate accord when NOAA/NASA changed the data. FACT
