    I was thinking last night. A proposition that sometimes that has terrible ramifications for those around me, but I digress. Thinking about all the wonderful things that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) represents. All of the grief and tribulation they cause us and some of the great things they offer, like the Curio & Relic License. I recalled how some folks say that A,T & F are the great things in life and decided that we should commemorate those items to which one government agency is committed to regulate.

    With that I offer up the suggestion for us all to post a picture whatever combination of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives (A,T,F, & E) we can find laying around. Just a few guidelines, though. To keep on topic the picture must contain an ''F" and at least one other of "A, T, & E." Extra points for all four! And please be safe! Don't consume "A" while using "F" or "E". You may use "T".

    ;)

    An now I humbly submit the following...

    Shouldn't that just be a pic of a bunch of different tax stamps?:)

    You'd think, huh? Somewhere along the way, they became a paramilitary police organization instead of a revenue collection agency. I'm waiting for the IRS to start raiding people with ninja suits and full-auto MP5s next. :rolleyes:

    In the immortal words of Dogbert: "I dream of a world where I can buy alcohol, tobacco, and firearms from the same place and use them all before I get home."

    Tech, the IRS just sends me a bill.:D

    Somewhere along the way was post-SSA of '68. IRS/ATU used to collect the gun taxes.

    Why would my very bestest of friends at the IRS or IDoR ever "raid" me, their friend and good cooperative citizen? Those poor underpaid, overworked fellows have far better things to do.

    :D

    I know there was some shuffling recently, but IIRC, the BATFE was/is the enforcement branch of the IRS. How about them apples!

    The "Revenuers" of the prohibition days now run amok.

    To do it right you've got to roll your own.

    That's covered; the powder, bullets, and reloading dies. Your right though I should have put one of the home built 1911's in there.

    My photoshopping skillz need work, but here is my entry:

    [​IMG]

    The CS-Special says: Absolut Poser, "Moron" on the cig pack, and is a pic of a Desert Eagle.

    The GI-Special: a pack of Lucky Strike's, a 1911, and a generic pack of beer. (You have no idea how hard it is to find an appropriate brand six-pack on google.)

    The Concealment Special: Snubbie .38, soft pack of cigs, and a Camelback full of your favorite beverage.


    BTW, there are NO real images of a full drive-through display on google images. I had to use this drawn one.:mad:

    These are great guys, keep them coming!

    The drive-thru had me on the floor!

    Think like your enemy, isn't that what they say? I suppose the Rossi could be construed as a high-cap, cop-killing, bullet hose, assault revolver. I figured the Skoal was apropos, as many folks smoke, including old Sarah herself... at least she used to, but only a true rootin', tootin', backwoods bubba dips 'baccy, right? :D

    Glenfiddich Special Reserve, Winchester 1911 SL, Peterson sterling silver & black churchwarden, Colibri PTR-8806, and a pouch of 35% Latakia, 40% Natural Cavendish, and 25% Red Virginia.

    *sigh* Good taste is always in season. ;) :p

    Now where'd I put that pic of my Jameson, SAR-1, the Zippo, and my Winstons? :D
