Huge safety concern!!!!! After being sent to the Para Factory once a friend's NEW WartHog blew up at the range a piece hit him in the face. He does not want anything to do with the gun. When he took it back to the dealer the dealer called the distributer Ellett brothers who refused to do anything about it. We are talking about a $800. pistol. If you are a dealer and buy from Ellett beware of their polices. And don't buy Para Ordinance products. We will be looking into legal action.

That isn't going to float at all...

The only way it would not be covered under warranty is he was shooting reloads. Evidently very poorly make reloads at that.

I love it when people make such claims as if everyone else is stupid enough to just swallow what they say out of hand...

it is either one of two things or a combination of both....

1. He put a round down a plugged barrel from a reloaded squib.

2. He fired a Round Loaded with a double or triple load in it.

3. he did both

Sell it some where else....

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Went to a party once.

With a guy who was like a brother to me. Anyway, drinking beer and eating Pizza. One of the guys was a shift Manager at Pizza hut so he made up a bunch of them and brought them over at the end of his shift.

Danny is stuffing his face, people are laughing and picking on him about being a bottomless pit.

So Mark comes in from out side and goes into the Kitchen and shouts "Who ate the shroom Pizza?

Everyone is like "Danny!" and Mark cusses once and then laughs his ass off and calls me into the kitchen. Tells me not to say anything but the Pizza Danny had just about ate all of was exactly that. Shrooms he picked down at a Dairy Farm where they Grain Fed everything, not Garden Mushrooms

I took Danny home and on the way into his house he screams "PICK IT UP" while looking at the bushes.

It's Florida and we have all these little Lizards all over right.

So I ask what they hell you want me to pick up Dan, "My Finger! it fell off and ran into that Bush, quick before it gets away!"

I had to baby sit him for almost 20 hours, but it was a really funny 20 hours...
lol

reminds me I had a guy hand me some Electric Wine once out on the beach which I proceeded to chug about half of. At some point in time I realized I was standing on the interstate with my thumb up walking in the opposite direction of traffic trying to get to Florida which was where I was at.

70's were a mean time at times... lol

were fun at times too. I did a lot of stupid shit back then, and am glad I lived through it. I guess in a way it prepared me for the shit that's going on today. I have sure learned some lessons since then. Some fun ones, some not so fun.

Yeah

It was wild, sad, exciting and dreadful all at the same time.

I still remember my Older brothers best friends older brother getting pissed off about the pull out. All he wanted to do was graduate in time to hit basic for the Marines and get to Vietnam. I just couldn't understand what his thing was, though Rick was the Football team star player and all that crap. For a smart guy I figured he was pretty stupid when he would get on a rant about it.

Then the Gas crunch, I used to hide when my Stepfather would talk about going to the station. Sneak out the back door and head over to my bret friends house and hang out until I would see him drive away. lol

Seemed to me it was a good time also with all the women running around without bra's on in low neck loose shirts.

Saw my first Boob when a reporter showed up what the street flooded. Every year durring the rainy season wht roads would flood and people would get stuck. Us kids would all get together and charged them $30.00 a gar to push them out and point to the tow trucks charging them $40 - 50.00 a pull. So she comes out to take pictures of us kids and she is squatting down digging in her bag. Calls out to me to hold this camera for her. I'm standing there just staring down her shirt with a grin on my face from ear to ear. She looks up and see's me staring and grinning. Smiles and tells me "one day" and goes back to digging around leaving me to stare.

LOL

Isd and guys

I worked at a gas station at night in Jersey, Gas has to be pumped for you. But you could always stop the numbers with a loose glass plate over them, and when they would say 5.oo they would get 4.00 and by the time was up for shift, I could fill it up and numbers on pump would still match. I am sorry for that now, but then it was in a ritzy part of town etc, The women that would ask me to do the windshield even with a husband or boyfriend driving, would spread them when I got to their side. That ain't no Bull either. Just back from Nam and big and strong, cut up because they tried to skin me, but kept shirt on. Girls like to have fun then and now, and there is always a way. JLC GOT to go guys, later Have a good one or two--

Ya'll bad

lol

Had a place down here do a tune up on my wifes car once while I was working down south, we were just dating at the time. They charged her $14.00 a spark plug for 8 spark plugs they put in her 4 cylinder Hyundai. Thats ok though as I heard they had to put 4 tires on 6 cars of customers that they had sitting in the parking lot one night.

Now those were some expensive spark plugs...

It got so bad down here that they added inspectors to run cars through shops and stations looking for scams and such.

Then there is always Southern Hospitality and the black and white of it.

thanks for posting

It is not schocking to me to read that mexico has screwed with the numbers,they are just like the mischevious cousin that everybody else in the family talks about at breakfast,not really bad,but definately not trustworthy,and one to watch when they get close to your things,something usually goes missing while they look at you and smile a lot.I got into some shit in Tijauana back in the 70s,and while me and a bud got back past the border,a couple others got stopped and shaken down by the cops for all their money at gunpoint,fortunately for them the cops did not know the whole story yet, so shaken down was nothing compared to what could have been.I haven't trusted Mexico since,although i have nothing against Mexicans,their government is corrupt in all manner of business.

Exactly so

I do not have anything against Latino people either. It seems that their Government would rather look North in hopes that we will respond like we have in other Central and South American countries in the past. Money, Troops, material and training,

Besides the UN is climbing up their butt and pointing at the USA like a kid refusing to accept responsibility for their actions probably seems like the best option.

I'm sure eventually the UN will request to send in troops of some sort. Should be interesting to see what Syria and Iran have to say about the Human Rights violations.
