castings and striker fired

Those clunky pistols were reliable and toted by a lot of police departments down here. Never got any love from me either! Investment castings can match the strength of forgings done right and Ruger...

just laughing!

Up and down more than a yo-yo! These days I just kinda laugh in bemusement when the doctors find another major condition. Funny that working hard on my day jobs did more damage to my health than my...

Nice!

John Browning understood engineering elegance a hundred years before it became a buzz word. On the surface it is easy to see how a 1911 works. I worked on them for a year or more before I finally...

Nothing wrong with giving people an honest choice.

Joe, on general principles I try to avoid buying foreign made. Never the less, I may hold my nose and buy a REVO shaft soon. I really liked the one I hit with a few times. Rumor has it they are made...

the deal from my perspective

They were represented as being made by a respected cue builder, now they have became a pig in a poke. I bought a semi-custom for about $165 a few years back. I could specify most things about a cue...

another approach

I try to lay down a certain percentage of my best game. I don't expect 100% every time I go into an event, isn't going to happen. So I try to peak for big events and settle for a little less for...

Pretty sure you crossed the line into waaayy too much detail! It did remind me of the old days of working in the power plant or petro-chem. We used to take the glue off of a box flap to make a nice...

that is funny!

Bob,

LOL is overused and abused but I did! Why in the world not clean the cue ball after a skid if you didn't before? Hoping the pool god's will even the score and give the other person a skid?

early reports said fog, eye witness heard engine sputtering

Early news reported heavy fog, might have been patchy, an eye witness said the engine was sputtering. Seems likely this will be mechanical failure. In theory helicopters are supposed to be able to...

nine people

Currently looks like the pilot and eight passengers. Not confirmed but likely the pilot flew the craft into a mountain in bad weather conditions.

I am mourning nine people equally. Can't say it...

Merry, Happy, and whatever else I missed. Seems like I might have gotten one of those but I don't remember!

folks would stand in line!

People would stand in line for your cues at five hundred I would think without giving a cut to a hustler. I have to admit I don't know, I make what I want.

fun to shoot!

I assume that is the high standard? A friend had one and I tried to shoot it every time he brought it to the range. It had a nice trigger and was a lot of fun to shoot. I remember I ironed out a...

Just a quick "Thank You" to the other guys that gave feedback concerning cell structure. All grist for the mill!

Interesting to think that the shaft might become harder and stiffer hitting as the...

This only works when you pick up of course but when I find myself talking to a phone bank I tell them that I do not tolerate obscene phone calls.

Angles and planning

When we quit using a lot of spin to move the cue ball around we are left with angles and better pattern play. Angles involves slightly modifying where the cue ball wants to go anyway. A much more...
