I'll be honest, H&K is one brand of firearms that I have little experience with. I have handled a few in the past, and they seemed rather well made, but as mentioned a little on the pricy side.

Except for the USP line, they lowered their prices quite a bit. Like maybe $200 off the price from about 2 or 3 years ago. So, not as expensive as they used to be

Thanks Ship. :th_thicon_idea:

 That is good info. Like I said, I have very little experience with them personally, but have read many fine reports and reviews of their products over the years. One day I may need to check them out again.

Let me add this to the thread as well.

Chuck Norris doesn't cheat death. He wins fair and square.

If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's beef.

Once a cobra bit Chuck Norris' leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.

Death once had a near-Chuck-Norris experience.

Chuck actually died four years ago, but the Grim Reaper can't get up the courage to tell him.

Chuck Norris makes onions cry.

When Chuck Norris enters a room, he doesn't turn the lights on, he turns the dark off.

Chuck Norris knows Victoria's secret.

When Bruce Banner gets mad he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets mad he turns into Chuck Norris. When Chuck Norris gets mad, run.

Chuck Norris doesn't wear a watch. He decides what time it is.

Chuck Norris doesn't dial the wrong number, you pick up the wrong phone.

New avatar says it best.

Love the avatar Alte!  :th_thicon_idea:

I got the idea for this thread from reading a comment on another forum, when this thirty something punk kid, said that Chuck Norris was over-rated and Bruce Lee had even kicked his azz. Hmmmm.... :th_nuts:

Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris were great friends before Lee passed away. Bruce was the one that offered and suggested Norris for the film they did the classic fight scene in. The even practiced and sparred together on a regular basis and had great respect for each other.

I went as far as to mention to the punk kid, I'd even pay good money to see him tell Chuck to his face what he thought about him! I think the last I heard after that were the crickets in the background!  :wave1:

It easy for some people to sit behind the safety of their keyboards and make such proclamations about others, but many of us know them for who they really are. Keyboard Warriors!  :rocknroll2:

I have had the opportunity twice in my life to meet Chuck Norris in person and to speak to him. Both times, he genuinely impressed me as being a very down to earth person, not in any way acting like the celebrity he is, a great sense of humor and just a guy you wouldn't mind hanging out with and talking to. And after left both times from meeting him, I have an even greater respect for him as person, and the things he does for others.

So yes, I'm a huge Chuck Norris fan. The actor, and the person.

Well last night I had planned on grilling some other stuff after grilling the steaks, but the weather didn't permit that. So I fired up the grill again, (all the while looking skyward!) and grilled some boneless chicken breasts, some chicken leg quarters, some smoked sausages, and some Eckridge beef franks.

So tonight, I'm indulging myself with some lowly hot dogs! But the Eckridge beef franks are some of the best I have had in long time. The are a bit bigger than ordinary hot dogs, and have a great flavor. I like them on warmed up bun, slathered with some mustard, and throw the frank to the bun!

We all know that Glock has been using the tag-line as part of their advertising for their pistols, "Glock Perfection", and now with Chuck Norris being a spokesman for Glock, maybe they are perfection!

Chuck says so. So who are we to disagree now?  :wave1:

“It seemed like a good idea at the time...Your Honor. “

I have actually used that one with my father many years ago!

I love the Chuck Norris sayings!

The boogey-man looks under his bed for Chuck Norris!

Chuck Norris's tears could cure cancer, if Chuck Norris cried!

It's not true that Superman is vulnerable to Kryptonite. It's Chuck Norris!

It rained like a gully-washer last night! I thought it had passed, or that it was just going to lightly rain, but NO! I had just got my charcoal going and it was going pretty good when the bottom fell out. flooded my fire. So I resorted to cooking the steaks inside in my huge cast iron skillet. I then seasoned them with some Cajun blackening seasoning, got the skillet nice and hot. The steaks turned out awesome. I hadn't cooked a steak in that way in some years, but they turned out wonderful. Only problem with cooking that way, they released a lot of the spices that had me coughing for about an hour! Almost like getting sprayed with pepper spray!  :wave1:

"Hold my beer and watch this!"   :wave1:

I've got a great Meatball recipe - made with Ground Sirloin and Jimmy Dean "Maple" Sausage (I like to make 'em about 1 1/2 times the size of a Golf Ball - about "2 bite sized")

and I like the Central Market (HEB brand) of different cuts of Pasta (alas, no HEBs up in this neck of the woods but I still have a small stash)

plus I've got a super Sauce recipe that is Tomato-less (albeit a bit of Tomato Paste) - main ingredients are Red & Yellow Bell Peppers, a Red Onion and Red Wine + spices - people raise an eyebrow about this Sauce.....until they're tasted it

and I do like to add Button Mushrooms to the Sauce

then that frozen "Texas Toast Garlic Bread" tops-off any Pasta dish.....

I started using a mixture of beef and pork sausage to make my meat sauce for spaghetti and pasta. The sausage makes a huge difference in the flavor. It really wakes it up.

Ship, I went back and re-read the article, and you are correct. It is the most "popular" bands. Huge difference.

Most popular accordant to two internet place..

My top 10 existed before the internet. as did most good music!!!!

Many that I really like as far as music, artists and groups also existed long before the internet, but I do like the internet to be able to enjoy them much easier now though.

TXAZ, I seriously gave some thought to going back to school and getting a teacher's certificate, some twenty five years ago. Sadly, as my second wife moved into being much higher maintenance, and more money driven, I let her talk me out of going for it.

On one hand, I say go for it if this is something you really would like to pursue. But, it all depends upon whether you can live with going to a much lower paying job. Ultimately, it's going to have to be a decision you and your family are going to make. Is the family supportive of this possible career change?

Ship made a good point, but your counter to that was a good one. An elective and chosen course such as physics is going to usually bring the smarter and more driven students to that sort of class. Good point.

Personally, I think teaching young minds to learn and to achieve a goal, is an admirable career to take on.

Whatever you decide, be happy with your decision, and the best of luck to you sir.

Yes there were a few bands in that list that I liked over the years .
ZZ Top, Cream ,The Who ,Jimmy Hendrix ,Doors ,Beach Boys ,Tom Petty Kinks ,Lynyrd Skynyrd . :rocknroll2:

I like those choices too Nato.  :th_thicon_idea:

Thanks , It looks like we both have good taste in music. :th_thicon_idea:

Nato, I like many different types of music.  :rocknroll2:

I enjoy a lot of different  music also as I grew up listening to the blues radio stations in Chicago when I was in 7th and 8th grade.
Then came the Rock and Roll time .
When I got married my FIL was a drummer with the Art Van Damm quintet and they played light jazz.

Other than Eric Clapton, I didn't really get into blues until about the mid 1990's. And I do now like some good blues music too.

The played two of my favorite movies back to back last week, Blues Brothers and Blues Brothers 2000!

It's Saturday Night folks!  :rocknroll2:

Facebook groups have stolen a lot of traffic, and likely make some folks spend less time on forums due to time spent doing other "social media".
I'm on tons of forums, but I don't really look them over unless I am after information, with exception for this forum (which I consider my home) and which I read often for Houston Texans related information, unless I am actually bored and not already busy with something either work or family related.

Dom, I may end up being the last of a dying breed, and even though I do have Facebook page, I'm just not going to do any gun forum type of posting on Facebook.

Last night, we had some oven-roasted chicken leg quarters, potato salad, corn, dinner rolls and ranch-style beans for dinner. It was pretty good stuff!

Tonight, depending upon how much or if it's still raining, sort of planning on steaks cooked on the grill, baked potatoes, garlic bread, and a green salad.
