    Still figuring this thing out, did a couple quick attempts to capture some recent "events"....
    I know some people don't like the "pointed towards me" look, hopefully these are angled far enough away to help, all firearms triple checked unloaded.

    Flame away!:)

    7.1 megapixel Nikon Coolpix. Cheapest thing WalMart had that looked like it might work for me. Lost my old one, dagnabbit.


    Included, very first pic with this thing...I got it about an hour ago.

    Now I want one. No clubs near me though AFAIK. That means no license for this Viking :mad:.
    I hate living here :mad: :fire: :banghead:.

    Lots of room in AZ, DOC will hire on a green card, just a BIT warmer, though...

    Like the semi-auto/revolver comparison picture. Mind if I suggest a new version?

    Divide the picture into two. In one pane (headed 'illegal in D.C.'), a fairly non-threatening-looking .22 semi-auto pistol, in the other (headed 'illegal in D.C.') a revolver in .44Mag, .500SW etc. Under each gun is a round of its ammunition laid vertical so the size differences are apparent. At the bottom is a short banner caption along driving home how ridiculous the law is, but without implying revolvers or certain calibres should be illegal.

    Some here have thought the same. I tried getting enough of a TempurPedic mattress to test on but the company said no.

    So did the wife!

    I'm guessing five feet of mattress would slow a bullet down about one gnat hair's worth :uhoh:

    Had a waterbed, HATED it. Yuck.
    I think a mattress MIGHT slow down shotgun pellets, but not much else.
    Box O' Truth, anyone?


    BTW, Yes, I just noticed the spelling error...

    I was looking at your pictures and I was like, "Hey, that pistol looks familiar." I have the same one. Excellent taste in handguns and great photos.

    If I may ask, why do you wear two wedding rings?

    The gold one is the wedding ring, the silver is a ring that my wife wanted me to wear, we have matching ones that are engraved "Always and Forever". So I put them together.
    Thank you, Picard, I do like them very much! :)

    We bought a new mattress for the guest room the other day and the old one hasn't been hauled to the county landfill yet. I may have to do some experimenting next weekend when I'm home. :D

    Well done! I dare say that you could be competing with Oleg down the road (and that's a compliment to you both!).

    Thank you, but Oleg is quite the master at this, I just fool around.

    Yeah, you've told me that before, and I'd probably go for that if I could get a Green Card. Haven't had any luck yet with the lottery though. Guess I'll have to get some kind of degree to help me :eek:.
