    Bob, checkout Ripper Street. I would like your opinion of it as a policeman.

    What did you get in your stocking?

    Hopefully it’s a fishnet with the seam up the back and it’s filled with my wife!

    Book of the Garand by Julian Hatcher

    I don’t mess with the wood on mine either. The bucks, bruises and notches all tell a story. I recently pulled a Type 38 Arisaka out of a corner in Pa and it looks like a road map. All correct but this old warhorse looks like it went from Manchuria to Philippines. Some GI, Marine or Sailor saw fit to leave it alone so I will too.

    Maybe they are San Francisco’s 2x4’s?

    Fur blanket

    My British Irvin jacket has the fur to the inside and it’s possibly the warmest coat I have ever worn.

    I traded my “Franken-15” for a new in the box 1860 Henry and it still makes me smile.

    Comparison of US and IJN Forces

    It’s interesting to see how a society that went from a medieval feudal society to world power in less than 80 years that had the ability to stand toe to toe with three world powers.

    Armi Sport "Sharps"

    I’ve owned two Armi Sports paper cartridge Sharps and both were real tack drivers. I highly suggest you go over to NSSA forum North South Skirmish Association and datamine there. There is a treasure trove of information buried there. Charlie Hahn sells nitrated paper tubes that work like a charm in these rifles and saves you a tremendous amount of hassle for just a few pennies.

    Is there anyone converting the original cylinder that came with the gun?

    i knew a guy who said that Rumbas simply mapped your house and transmitted the layout of your house to the Shadow Gov. Maybe your dogs and cats know something?

    guess i can't trade a Garand for a kimber

    Well, that would be highly unusual for an issue Springfield. Normally it’s the other way around, an older receiver with a newer barrel.

    India muskets

    I’ve owned and shot them. They are clunky and require lots of woodwork to make them close to historical dimensions. The wood can be difficult to stain/dye, it can be hard to carve and hard to finish with historical methods. The locks can be superior to other makes but they can also be worthy of pulling your hair out over. They are highly controversial in the black powder and the re-enacting community. Some love them others loathe them. I have seen some that were heavily reworked that looked amazing. I was across the field from one that let go and split the length of the barrel about 2/3rds of the way along a very visable seam. After that incident, I won’t shoot one and that was with a blank or blanks.

    Question about gun ports

    Who wants a funnel to channel the projectiles in towards the defender? ive been in numerous fortifications that dated from medieval to 18th century and the V has always been inside.

    Scrapple...not Scrabble

    A friend of mine once said that scrapple was made from leftovers sold by the local Mohel for kosher swine.

    Scrabble In Europe

    Everyone I know of are printed in Hochdeutsch. There may be some small run or local paper that’s printed in the local dialect. I can ask my Swiss wife if you want.

    Scrabble In Europe

    Swiss -German is only spoken, with no official recognition for it as a written language. Swiss-Germans will speak and write in official capacity in Hochdeutstsch. There has been some who wish to preserve the uniqueness of Swiss-German dialects and have written it down and preserved it. Every German I know says that Swiss-German is unintelligible to them.

    You were at Bunker Hill, Vera Cruz, Chickamagua, Little Big Horn, San Juan Hill, Meuse-Argonne, Normandy, Chosin? You have been around the block!!!!

    While Germans use this, it is not universal nor do all German speakers use it. For instance, German speaking Swiss have never used it, nor Lichentensteiners.

    The occasional fat guy will pop up in period photos of soldiers. I’ve even seen a few that would be called morbidly obese but I have never seen these fat guys in airborne, Spec Forces, Ranger, Waffen SS or other high speed units. More often they are second and third line support guys.

    Might be a good time to start that chainmaile business I have always wanted.
