Every state needs a victim shield law to block lawsuits in cases like this.


I was sued for a million dollars once.
My attorney asked for instructions.
I told him I would burn everything I owned, before I gave my attackers anything.
He smiled.

To the crackhead who shot me last Wednesday - (midtown)

A message from a future permit holder-

http://memphis.craigslist.org/mis/2694107226.html

It is unlikely that I will ever see you again, as God blessed you with absolutely NO distinguishing characteristics and you were wearing that stupid bandana in front of your face, but here's what:

You shot me in the knee. I might have a limp for the rest of my life, but don't worry- I will get a pimp cane and rock it. I hope that it was worth all those tampons and crossword puzzles I kept in my purse.

Love, You-know-who-from-my-driver's-liscence (Good luck passing that OVER 21 ID on to a friend; something tells me we won't match demographics.)

P.S. You are a motherfucker.

I own a Wilson Combat 45, Armalite AR-10, Mossberg stainless pump, and an SKS. I wish I could afford to have a nicer collection but I got what I felt was the minimum needed and the SKS is for recreational shooting.

The Apology Track

Postby gyre » Mon Nov 28, 2011 10:10 am

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/11/ ... YP20111124

- A convicted British burglar forced to write a letter of apology delivered a barely literate diatribe in which he blamed his "dumb" victim for the crime because the kitchen window was open.

The letter from the unnamed crook, which was not delivered to the victim, was released by West Yorkshire police in the northern English city of Leeds to demonstrate the mindset of the criminals who target people's homes.

The 16-year-old burglar was told to write a letter of apology as part of an Intensive Supervision and Surveillance Programme (ISSP), a non-custodial plan for young offenders.

Instead of apologizing for his offence, the teen thief wrote: "I don't no (sic) why I am writing a letter to you! I have been forced to write this letter by ISSP.

"To be honest I'm not bothered or sorry about the fact that I burgled your house. Basicly (sic) it was your own fault anyways (sic). I'm going to run you through the dumb mistakes you made."

The young offender went on to say the victim failed to draw their curtains before they went to sleep and were "thick enough" to leave their downstairs window open.

"But anyways I don't feel sorry for you and Im (sic) not going to show any sympath (sic) or remores (sic)," the teen concluded.

West Yorkshire police Chief Inspector Melanie Jones urged property owners to take more care when securing their homes.

"The contents of the letter are disgusting but it does highlight the cold and dispassionate way burglars select a property to target."

A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you
least expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of
your unit.

If anyone is interested in Barretts, a friend has arranged a tour coming up of the factory.

It includes the chance to fire a 50 on their range.

Doesn't help enough, so far.

P.38 cyq 6833

6833 sa t

Right side B e

Numbers match, steel frame, impact bend to the trigger guard, overall decent condition.
Barrel looks very shiny inside with some pitting at the ends.
Has proofmarks.
I need to look at it again.

Guy asked me to help value his luger, but no luger.
Gun shop offered him a 223 in trade, supposedly worth $500 retail.

Definitely wartime production, I think, with the inconsistent finishing.

He needs a good carry weapon, living here, and needs cash.
I have neither to spare myself.

Seems like a wide range of values.
I can't seem to pin down the serial number placement.

The Spreewerk guns are generally supposed to be the less valuable, but it does seem to have some value, even in this economy.

IIRC, I paid 65 bucks for mine, with numbered holster and extra clip.
early 80's I believe Argentina or Brazil, released a ton of theirs, too. Mine came from German police replacement program.

The ultimate answer, is, it's worth what someone will pay.
"Shotgun news" may have them listed somewhere.

If it's bent, probably $500 retail is about right. $250 trade-in is maybe not too far off.

I have for several years guesstimated mine at about $350 trade in. Same series,but s/n lower by about 1000. War 'souvenir' from ww2

There are many, many serial number series for these, well over a million made.

I think this may be a very early model, which may make it more rare.

They serialized by the month.

I saw no suffix for that.

Flying fashionistas with a thing for the Second Amendment may want to leave their gun-themed purses and other paraphernalia at home, lest they be flagged as a security risk and miss their flights.

As she was flying home after the recent holiday weekend, Virginia Gibbs' gun-themed purse was flagged as a security risk by Transportation Security Administration officials at the Norfolk, Virginia, airport.

While Gibbs told CNN affiliate News 4 JAX that she's carried the purse on many flights, the 17-year-old says she was told that the purse "was a federal offense because it's in the shape of a gun. I'm like, 'a design on a purse. How is it a federal offense?' "

Purses or belts with gun emblems can fall under a TSA prohibition on replica weapons because they could be mistaken for a real weapon in the X-ray machine or by a fellow passenger.

"Security checkpoints may be impacted or closed because replica weapons like toy guns, novelty grenades, fake bombs and other items appear similar to the real thing when viewed through an X-ray machine," TSA spokesman Greg Soule said. "Checkpoint closures cause significant delays, which can be avoided if passengers don't bring these items to the airport."

By the time TSA officials figured out that the purse was a fake, offering Gibbs the opportunity to give up the purse or check it, Gibbs had missed her flight and was placed on another to Orlando. Her frantic mother drove from Jacksonville to Orlando to pick her daughter up.

Gibbs arrived at security 20 minutes before her flight was due to depart, which may have caused her to miss her flight, according to a security official.

The TSA says it's investigating her allegation that the purse has made it through airport security before.

I'm trying to catch up on my lack of computer background now.

I'm open to any suggestions for books, videos, etc to learn from.

It's one of those things I've got to learn to do.

My friend found a P11 with the P40 kit, and a very good deal too.

They had a 357 SIG kit once too.

We'll be finishing my kalashnikov as soon as his eyes recover from a shop accident.

I'll let you know how the P40 fires.

Catching up a bit...
NRA member. Don't care what they think about my bedroom activities. None their bidnez.
Chicago gun law protester. Fuck Daley (and now whatshisface)

Deer hunter
Mossberg 500 owner with many clays blown up, 10 point buck (30 yds) and 8 point buck (66 yds). Sabot slugs rifled barrel.
Springfield Range Officer .45 shooting bullseyes at 20 yards.
Next purchase(s) Ruger 10/22 for fun. At least one but maybe a pair of .38 revolvers. A tank (why the F not? Chicago potholes suck)
Next hunt: Snow Goose in Southern IL in Feburary
Other toys: Dillon RL550B reloader set for .45 ACP.
Gun porn and deer porn soon.

Have never been to 'Church' out on Playa. Always wanted to.

Hey Rat Bastard.
I thought you were already on here?
Guns, cars and videotape!


Serialized my ak flat and welded in the rails.
Shaped the trigger mount points.
Got the rear trunnion stripped and have the front trunnion almost done.
Next is threading the trunnion for the receiver.

Has anyone tried one of the adjustable triggers for the kalashnikov?
I saw one on AK builder very reasonable, compared to the Timney.

I'll have enough usa parts to use imported magazines, important with the drum.

Did you know the autosear acts as a safety?
Too bad I can't install that.
Such an elegantly complex and subtle design, for so few moving parts.

Tapco has run out of AK flats.
If you want one of theirs, look quickly.

Tapco makes followers for most steel ak magazines.
A really easy usa part to add.

They can be shortened in most cases too.
A 20 round magazine can hold 24 rounds.

My friend found a 15 round magazine recently.
No markings.

You can also shorten the steel ones and the tapco magazines look like they're built to shorten.

Useful sizes in a vehicle or firing prone.
Iraq made them for the sniper versions.

Looks like the friend of mine that does WWII reenactments will make a deal on this gun.
I think the suffix is t.

The significant thing is that it has the original numbered firing block, often replaced or damaged on these.

The offer is $300 and a P90 Ruger 45.
Does that seem fair?

He picked up a Tanfoglio the other day that looked very much like this.
A great feel to it, and much nicer looking in person.
Note the two tone finish.
