    Considering SWMBO is "covered" in them, I should hope I wasnt.

    Clarified my thought for you. Please notice my disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

      While I find the subject of guns far more fascinating than motorcycles, that show (Sons of Guns) turns me off almost as much as the bickering dad & son motorcycle show. Both shows could be interesting if they'd just stick to the mechanical/technical issues, and drop all of the overbaked theatrics.

      I watched an interesting show, or series of shows, last night. Dealt with life in the old west, including the life of Tom Horn, a Pinkerton agent who got carried away and became just a cold blooded killer, until finally stopped by the end of a rope in 1903, for killing a 14 year old boy in Wyoming.

      The following episodes dealt with precision shooting, including an archer, a fellow Alabamian who has followed in the footsteps of Howard Hill, a famed Ala archer, as the top guy with a long bow (recurve actually). It took a couple of tries, but he did successfully hit the nock of a previous shot and drive it on through the target.

        Actually they amounted to two guns that were stolen a couple years prior without knowledge and the rest were recievers that were screwed up while benched.That said they are still supposed to be accounted for listed as destroyed etc.Basically they stuffed up the paperwork.

          Can you keep an FFL with a misdemeanor?
          Well several ways,if you did the crime as a minor your record goes away at 18.Also it's Felony convictions that count against having an FFL or CC permit.

          Even in those cases if you can get the judge that sentenced you to write a letter affirming that you are rehabilitated most times that will put you back in good standing.

            I gave up on Sons of Guns on the third episode, when they had a Grade D actor meeting the owner on a bridge, claiming he was a Blackwater-type contractor needing an electrical M60 turret retrofit for an SUV in Afghanistan. They ended up jury-rigging a horribly constructed rotation mechanism, and that idiot who claims to be an engineer wired up a Wii remote for the controlller

            The "operator" shows up on several other episodes in various roles.
            The Campy BS is what turns everybody off.I could tell instantly that the domed top on that mount was the lid from a Webber BBQ grill

            The sad part is,they do or did build a really nice AK.I've seen a couple up close and they really are slick operating guns-

                I don't mind the phony acting, and hamming-it-up for the cameras as much as the wasting away of good machines.
                Every time I come across "Son of Guns", and/or "Paul Jr. Motorcycles" on TV, I want to vomit.
                There they are, in the background..... Beautiful, BRAND NEW, HAAS CNC's without a scratch on them, and no swarf anywhere to be seen.
                These machines are never even turned on! The controls are always black, every episode!!
                I'm sure the guys at HAAS sold (or gave??) these nice machines to these dimwits for the free airtime.
                Those machines should be spitting out parts non-stop.
                Such a waste.
                UUUUGHHGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  You're fighting for a very in-demand skill set at the moment. For some reason the demand is never really in sync with the state of the economy.

                  Give me a yell if you accept telecommuters from the other coast and I'll see if I can dig anybody up.
