Never been something that interested me. Of course, I have a SCAR - I can spare a couple extra dollars for a box of new ammo.

Man warns pet owners after fish tank releases 'second deadliest' poison, hospitalizes 10

At first, Chris Matthews thought a flu bug had hit his entire family last week when they started to feel nauseous and experience eye problems at the same time. But when the family's two dogs started to show symptoms, Matthews knew something was wrong.

Matthews had cleaned out the aquarium inside his house in Steventon, England, a day prior. The 27-year-old was transferring rocks and other items from the fish tank into another container, so he could clean each item individually.

One good example - I bought a nickel Sig P224 about 2.5 to 3 years ago. Perfect carry gun, with the aluminum frame and other parts nickel plated. Should be pretty rust resistant.

Gun was DA/SA, and it shot well. The problem is that the gun weighed almost as much as a Beretta 92 in a pistol that was about Glock 26 sized. I have lower back issues, and I can no longer carry a heavy gun. Well, that 224 gave me hip pain after carrying it just a few minutes. So, I had to sell it - and, it was not easy to sell. I usually sell a handgun in less than a week, easy. That Sig took like a month or so to finally sell

Thanks for letting me know. I will go look at that. Been a long time since I messed with those behind the scenes questions. Heck, now I gotta go find where those questions are hidden at in the software  :P

Anyway, thanks! I will fix it now

Man, where do I start...  :th_thicon_lol:

SOME of my selling is to pay for something else I want - but many is that the gun just doesn't work for me, personally (not the gun for me)

I cannot tell you how many non 1911 45ACP handguns I have bought - thinking that they are fine in my hand at the gun store... But because I have smaller hands... Once I go shoot them, I discover that the gun is indeed too big for my hands.

Many times, a gun just doesn't do it for me after 1-4 range trips, and then I'll sell it. Too many to really get into, given all the ones I have owned over 20+ years

Accountant thrust into emergency goalie role for Chicago Blackhawks, makes 7 saves

An Illinois accountant was thrust into duty for the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night, suiting up as the emergency goalie when the team's regulars were felled by injuries.

Scott Foster stepped in between the pipes for the Blackhawks and stopped all seven shots he faced in the final 14 minutes of the team’s 6-2 win over the playoff-bound Winnipeg Jets.

Blackhawks play local accountant as emergency goalie!

When you think things cannot get worse for the Chicago Blackhawks, life will prove you wrong. Already without star goalie Corey Crawford, who hasn’t played a game since December 23rd as he remains sidelined with an upper-body injury, the Hawks were expected to start Anton Forsberg in net against the Winnipeg Jets last night.

But then things started to go south, before the game even started...

Forsberg—who himself is a replacement for Crawford —was a scratch after being injured in practice this morning, and so backup Collin Delia took his place. Delia was recalled on an emergency basis yesterday afternoon and started in his first ever NHL game.

I've done the standard Magpul handguard before. They aren't too expensive

CHILLING: 6 facts about communism you won’t hear in today’s pop culture

1. Nearly 100 million people died under communist regimes.
2. Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, aka ‘Chairman Mao,’ was responsible for executions, imprisonments, forced famines and labor camps that killed an estimated 65 million of his own countrymen.

Intelligence officials fear China's global 'kidnapping' program has reached America

Some U.S. intelligence officials fear that the Chinese government is conducting sophisticated "kidnapping" programs in the United States in order to spirit their nationals back to the mainland, where they face arrest and imprisonment on political and corruption charges. Beijing has openly admitted to repatriating more than 3,000 people "who had escaped overseas" since late 2012, Xinhua reports, although the U.S. intelligence community believes China's strategies in Western nations often involves pushing the definitions of coercion and kidnapping.

Kansas considers making schools liable for not arming staff

In the wake of last month’s mass shooting at a Florida high school, at least 10 states across America have provisions in place giving teachers the option of carrying guns in schools, but Kansas may be taking their plans further than most other laws in place or under consideration.

Kansas schools that refuse to allow teachers to carry guns could be held legally responsible in the event of a school tragedy under a proposal drafted recently.

IDK man, Kidde needs to get their act together. Weren't they just in the news like 4-5 months ago for recalling millions of fire extinguishers too? I recognize everybody makes mistakes occasionally and all -- and it's already off-putting enough to say that about a company that makes products you're literally staking your life on, as well as the lives of your entire family and/or any guests you happen to have over should disaster strike -- but the friggin' fire extinguisher fiasco involved them recalling models they'd produced from as far back as like 1974 for god's sake.

Yes, they did just have that other recall.

I have 2 of the affected model. 1 detector was made in the recall period. But, it does not have that yellow piece inside, blocking the sensor.

Kidde smoke alarm recall issued for nearly 500,000 that could fail

Fire safety product maker Kidde is recalling nearly 500,000 smoke alarms that could be faulty.

The company issued a recall for about 452,000 alarms in the U.S. and 40,000 in Canada after discovering that a yellow cap potentially left on during production could cover a sensor and prevent it from detecting smoke.
