Yeah,

Been meaning to ask you Coyote if you got the stuff after the second mailing. Still wonder why it came back to me.

.37 cents? That's highway robbery!!!!!!!!!! Why, with the price of gas I could have driven the stuff to Wylie in TX cheaper...................oh................wait.. .........


Seriously though Wylie, let me know if any postage was due on the stuff. I used our stamp setup at work and it does occasionally under-postage stuff.

You have to wonder about our federal mail institutions, Aus Post must be one of the most expensive, slow and reliable postal services in the world, and yet I ebay a half dozen servos from the US and the USPS gets them to me in 5 days, what's with that!!! I can't imagine fedex doing much better and it would take Aus Post three weeks to do it at three times the cost.

Lol TJ, I have actually done that kind of mail bag-on-the-go transfer, not on land but on the water from boat to boat while they were on the go. Was working as a skipper for a little island resort and we had to chase down the mainland ferry in our little chase boat or Island ferry, they wouldn't stop but would take a small diversion to let us know to get our @sses out there immediately. I used to where a cowboy hat back in those days.

Slopin' winds are finally due back tomorrow, so hopefully...

Funny thing about shipping. I shipped a 5 1/2' box to Ken in TX by way of the dog (Greyhound) last week. I dropped it off Wednesday afternoon and he had it Saturday morning. Much cheaper than FedEx or UPS too.

Steve, I can picture wearing a cowboy hat, riding the waves to get the mail.

For the gun lover

Off topic again but had a fun day. I've been trying to hunt down a S&W BodyGuard .380 for over a month now and nobody local or online have them in stock. Actually, there's no .380's of any make in stock locally. Saturday morning I got up early and called my LGS and they got two in the night before. Five minutes away and by the time I got there, one was being written up.

Went to the range this morning to check it out and it's everything I expected from reading about it. Iron sights and laser dead on at 21', eats any ammo you feed it without a hitch and fits the hand excellently for a small pistol. It's loaded with all the features of a bigger gun and has second strike capability. I highly recommend this compact, pocket .380 for anyone in the market for a new EDC.

I don't have any firearms anymore. I took everything on a canoe trip last weekend and I tipped over, spilling everything out and into the lake which is 500' deep.


Cool grab Don. The Hossman's wife packs the exact same one.

Call it culture shock . . . whatever . . . but dwells' post leaves me ice cold.

EDC - Everyday carry - tactical items that are worn or carried by a person on a daily basis.
I had to look this up - I though Eurovision Dance Contest or Eau de Cologne.

Cons (where do I start and finish?):
  • What is this post doing here?
  • What mindset underlies pride in owning and showing off this piece, let alone recommending it to others?
  • There's a euphemistic acronym for this kind of weapon?
  • What kind o' weird-arse self-destructive community are you guys running over there?
Pros: can only think of one - to clear the field of Radian fliers with extreme prejudice.

We've been known to occasionally get off topic on this particular thread. We often talk about other hobbies and purchases too.

Occasionally someone pops in here to chastise us for not staying serious, on-topic or relevant to what they, in their over-inflated sense of superiority, feel should be discussed. To those people we say "Don't let the door hit ya in the on your way out.

Now, normally I wouldn't express that sentiment so boldly but with your additional snide comments about our "culture" or "community" I can only see your remarks as provocative and insulting. So, for that let me extend a big old American (guess) you!
