Hello all! I am happy to have found this place. I'm a member of a few manufacturer-specific firearm forums, but I've been looking for a general firearm forum for a while now. Anyway, I mostly shoot pistols, and I prefer CZ, Tanfoglio Witness, or other CZ clones. Not sure what else to say. I love moonlit walks on the beach with my SP-01 filled with HST 124gr JHP... haha!

Thanks!

your Extenze? You'd prolly do just as well stickin' it into a box of Miracle-Gro® plant food, ya need to have something to start with b4 Extenze will work LOL

Original "Planet of the apes", Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowell??

I watched "Back To The Future" last night. "S'matter a fact, I've watched a lot of my old VHS and DVD movies lately.
When Mrs Daisy sees me sit down at my computer she must think I'm bored and need something to do 'cause that is when she unrolls the hunny doo list. If I sneak off to the back bedroom and fire up a movie, that she understands and leaves me alone(??)

3 days ago she began monitoring her blood sugar and I just had to do this and do that for her. Ended up sticking myself with the damn blood letting machine!

Time to go do the movie thing. Either "Terminal Impact" or "The Mummy".
Be back for a few minutes around midnight, C y'all

Good to see you.. afraid 5.5 hasn't become "addicted" to the site yet. Whats new with your XD shoot'n self.. By the way where do you go besides Ben Averys.. The only downside of our move is not being able to shoot when ever i want.. Hoping i can find a place close (sun city ((no smirks)) area) that i can join to have indoor range time.. Neat thing about being a handgun shooter. Least I won't have to go see "ben" when i want to shoot..

Guys has that changed.. Is there an indoor range for rifles now..

"Ecnal Rezo: Your photo

I think it translates to "Meet me in the men's room at the bus depot"

Joycelyn Elders, the "Top Doc" who taught children how to masturbate and who's own son was arrested on some serious drug charges.
But "It's for the children".

During the Clinton administration members of the military were given other than honorable discharges for doing the very same things the pervert-in-chief was doing in the Oral Office of the White House. Fraternising with those JUNIOR TO THEM and adultery.
The son of a bitch belongs in prison.

Clinton saga..

Mixed feelings on old Bill.. Fact is he got the job done.. and being 100% honest, i think Hillary might be the only one of the current administration who's actually doing her job.. Before you all have a heart attack.. Of course her politics are not in line with ours.. pretty simple were conservatives.. Hillary is the dictionary picture of liberal.. "but" .. she is doing her job.. To quote Charles Krauthamer here.. "she's the only one in the administration that doesn't scare me".. This episode on FOX was NOT a "well done".. just simple statement that she was "competent"..

What bothered me about the whole "blown bill" thing was that he lied.. Our President should never, under any circumstance be allowed to lie.. disgusting..

(i tried to down load a spck program that my computer fought me on... for real here.. i spent the last 10 min playing with the foolish thing and still no spck icon.. now i've got google mad at me.. sigh>

outlook express or outlook mail frame, click the "ABC" icon at the top of the email frame. Once it's corrected you copy and paste to the GS comment.
Easy way 2. Download the free version of Wordweb. It's not a real spell checker but you can put the curser on a word, hold down Ctrl and right click the mouse. Voila, you'll see a definition if it is spelled correctly, suggestions if it's wrong and "look on the web" option.
Wordweb is a dictionary and thesaurus, pretty cool

You could also use Microsoft "Wordpad" if your computer has it. You'd use spell check then copy & paste.

I have two vocabularys.. my spck which is "me".. and the #@$%&# spck is in hiding vocabulary thats "close" to fourth.. ok third ..grade levil..

Not much for excuses, but was told by an educator that im a product of a failed (ya think) education program based on phonics.. guess it had it's own name etc.. do know that in third grade they grabed some of us and stuck us in an advanced english (hey thanks guys) class.. Good did come of this in terms of vocabulary, reading comprehension etc.. But it was done in absence of the formal rules of spelling.. Fact not excuse.. Those who went on to "re" learn spelling did well in life.. The "greg's" in the group were blessed with the advent of spck..

I've tried to down load two programs already.. our slow sat link makes the paste copy a non starter.. thanks for the heads up on word web.. the other two that i've wasted the morning on.. nope..

Still chuckling on that one.. My spell check icon is hiding.. Sure this has to be a major issue to those who are spell capable, so i'm doing my best to talk it into a prompt return. To put this into perspective, when i finish a post and hit spck my "norm" is about a 50 % light up.. Sad but fact..

I think either you are a great speller or a great shot. I can't shoot so!

Did you work at the Yuma Territorial Prison? lol

Every time I se your "spck" abbreviation for spell check I read it as Spick...

I eventually found myself in a position where I HAD to write reports that went way up the ladder. I forced myself to use phonics and rote. That's been 40 years ago, I was just a kid LOL
