    A buddy had one of those in high school.  It was a brand new heap of poo.  Just falling apart and unreliable.

    WOW, a princely $189.50 for the rifle and all 52 accessories, and $0.75/round ammunition

    I'll take 3 of them, please, along with 500-1000 rounds of ammo

    Vulcan projectiles can be turned to fit...I'm sure Lee could whip up a die for a little bit of nothing...

    The Great Satan had a 50" 4K model on floor display for $298 just a week or so ago.  Thought about getting it, decided not to.  Off brand, but still...

    I find it interesting that when I first bought this place I had an old 27 inch TV hooked up to the antenna and got 3 channels but they did not come in clear at all. I just hooked up my 4K 55 inch to the same antenna and get 7 channels and they are all coming in clear.

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    How about a mail order long barrel 'artillery' luger for $69.95 plus 32 round 'snail drum' magazines for $29.95? Frequently advertised in pre-GCA 1968 gun magazines

    I've been to Gibraltar, and a piece of the rock can literally be bought in stores there.  The thing is, you can't just go and pick up your own piece of the rock, because the entire rock is a restricted military installation.
