    I uh,..know a guy, who's been eyeballing one of those Heizer autos. If the price drops much more I'll bet he picks one up. They are funny looking. Gotta wonder how they shoot.

    50 years after Roe v. Wade and they still get knocked up "unintentionally" is spite of having access to the most numerous contraceptive choices in history.

    Subsidize birth control, strictly regulate terminations and outlaw single moms.

    Killing your kid because you are stupid and lazy is the wrong thing to do. Even if it was probably gonna be a shitty kid.

    Labor unions have never been necessary, useful, or American.

    They indulge the lazy, incompetent, and criminal lowlifes that would rather extort than produce. The result of the peasantry's need for a master and the parasite's desire for a docile host. There isn't one single innovation in worker's rights that was spawned by a labor union. From paid holidays to pensions, every common employee benefit was created by free enterprise to cultivate a better labor pool then co-opted by commies to justify their leeching.. Thanks to unions we now get to pay lowest common denominator clock watching worms to stay home and produce nothing just because some loudmouth nigger was too slow to duck.

    Fuck 'em. Send them all back to Russia.

    Ok, video. Forgot UMatic. Had to go on a search once for a transfer client. Found a local who had one. They never came to pick it back up. I recall there being some kind of timecode issue with the beta deck. Not sure what, maybe a bad card since they were both production units and should have synced right up. Had to rent a generator if I recall. Never got into video gear any more than I had to . Probably should have.

    Phatzo, about when was that?

    Yeah well, being part of the Woodrow class of '82 and spending a lot if time hanging out at White Rock lake, I naturally paid attention to Pantera as they came up.

    Hell, when I was younger we occasionally got our shrimp at Anselmo's off Severn.

    From everything I've heard they were all good folks and great players. Sad news.

    Seems like it's soon going to be the only branch of any consequence going forward. Commercial exploitation is the only motivation that's likely to fuel off planet activity. Once the boom starts, I reckon there will be plenty of disagreements to....arbitrate. Never mind the obvious tactical benefit groundside. In a hundred years it just might be the de-facto government.

    Seems to me if it's just about lethality that question was answered about a century ago. I kill very little with firearms. Whole different set of considerations.

    Well, for half the round cost there's nothing to discuss. As I said before, 115's don't feel right. 147's start to approach the sensation that you've fired a 1911. Big, metal framed auto's have a way about them that I gravitate towards when just out shooting. And again, I like to shoot. Twice as much is a good thing.

    9x19 is pretty much a range round with me. Maybe one day that'll change but for now I just customize paper with them.

    That being said it's not a terrible round for a 1911. Especially the heavier projectiles. They seem to shoot flatter and the recoil's almost pleasant. Can't say what .38 super shoots like. But I imagine it's much the same. Just more expensive.
