Ok, it would officially be time to crash the plane if I see this...  :th_KO: :th_KO: :th_KO: :th_KO:

'It started tickling me': Passenger recounts horror at meeting tarantula on Air Transat flight

Catherine Moreau was watching a movie on her iPad on a flight to Montreal when she felt what she thought was a wire brushing against her. When she looked down she saw a giant, furry tarantula climbing up her leg.

"I brushed [the wire] away and it started tickling me again. That's when I noticed the tarantula," Moreau told CBC News.

"I hit it to get it off me before it bit."

Well, I'm done now. I also have a fullsize mouse and keyboard hooked to the laptop. Makes it easer to type. But, more room, on the desk and less wires with the laptop than with the monitor and desktop..

Man, migrating over to my new laptop is time consuming. Always something ya forgot... one file or something... that ya gotta go back to the old system to get.  Almost done, though.. Hope to turn off the desktop and pick it up in the closet soon.

Getting an old Photoshop 5.5 to work on WIn 10 has been a pain in the butt, but I got it to work last night finally.  Photoshop costs too much to buy a new version, and the old version still does what I need it to.

Just ordered a few hundred bucks worth of parts for my 92A1

I may eventually get a Wilson guiderod for my 92A1, so I don't have to rely on the captive spring assembly. But, I don't usually make that many changes to the 92.

One day I do wanna look at yours with the modified safety levers, though...

Once I am divorced, I may head up your way for a visit one Saturday. Maybe we can hit the range.

Gun-Maker Sentenced to Probation, Fined for Firearms Crimes

Mark Malkowski was sentenced to two years of probation and personally fined $100,000 during the sentencing hearing Tuesday in federal court in Hartford.

Malkowski and the company, New Britain-based Stag Arms, had pleaded guilty to charges including possession of a machine gun not registered to the company and failure to maintain proper firearms records.

Hmmm...$10 to call the IRS and tell them to KMA is very tempting.....

I think the skateboard is what really gave him away.

Ya think?

Plus, look at the kids photo. Man, does he look intimidating or what  :th_thicon_lol:

Man impersonates officer to get names of employees at Hooters

Fuhst was apparently convincing or intimidating enough that an employee wrote down several names and gave him the list. He then left the restaurant on his mode of transportation, a skateboard, but returned a short time later.

Ammunition / Re: 22 LR ammo shortage again

Ive never shot any PMC brand® ammo, and in fact, my nephew and I were just talking about the brand the other day, as he was asking me, if I’d ever shot any of it?

I've shot plenty of 9mm of that brand in the past. I don't see it around much lately.

It was a popular brand over 10 years ago, then the company went out of business. More recently - someone bought the name and started making it again. But, I rarely see it in my area.

Years ago, it was rather dirty, but no more so than WWB.

New wheel pic?

Yea, but it may be a while. I plan to try the gun Sat, and then send the slide off for night sights. So, the new pic will likely come after I get the slide back :)

Oh, I also have the Cx4, but that is too big to fit in a "wheel photo"  :rocknroll2:

I had a high of 9 Beretta 92s at one point. I then decided to diversify and sold most of them off.

Now, a few years later... After owning all sorts of things again... I've gone back to the 92 models. I do have a few other guns, but Berettas is probably all I will buy in the future. Just to collect. I'm back where I started again :P

I just ordered an ELite II hammer. Beretta USA is having a sale
