  1. MA Cannon license

    Pfah. I read all the Hornblower books before I was a teen; I can run that off in my sleep (it’s 1:38am, so, who knows, I might be sleep posting right now ...) Worm Sponge Ladle powder Wad (ladle and wad may be replaced by a bag of powder) Ram Load ball Ram again Run out the gun Prick cartridge...
  2. ATF To Rewrite The Definition Of A Lower Receiver: Lower Receivers Are Not Firearms

    I like this. Step 1, mail order a bunch of uppers while the lower is the regulated part Step 2, mail order a bunch of lowers once the upper is the regulated part Step 3, profit.
  3. Solar Winds Hack....

    Oh. Hell. It TOTALLY whizzed[1] over my head ... Only excuse I got is lack of sleep ... R [1] Giving you a second shot :cool:
  4. Solar Winds Hack....

    Sure. IT is a service organization. We get our budget via allocations from the business units. Those are my customers and they get my attention and resources. The groups that come to me mid year with grandiose schemes and no budget of their own? If I funded everyone who knocked on my door...
  5. Solar Winds Hack....

    I own all cloud infra for a very large company. I try to still spend some time doing Linux and vom stuff between asking for & managing money and beating off all the people who want me to fund their pet project. I use a Mac lappie to get to the real (Linux) servers. If it’s got a GUI it ain’t a...
  6. How heavily armed is your state

    on the gripping hand, “Hey, CBS reported on how low the number of guns inthe state actually is, we‘re in the bottom 4, so your work is done and we don’t need any more legislation” seems like an EXCELLENT message to send to Beacon Hill ...
  7. Solar Winds Hack....

    Imma be blunt - you need to stop pretending you have enough clue to wave your it penis around and do some more research: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2020/12/how-the-solarwinds-hackers-bypassed-duo-multi-factor-authentication.html
  8. Unusual editorial in Washington Post

    Fortunately, it’s a self resolving problem. Just needs some patience and a street cleaning truck.
  9. Gun license & DUI

    Meh. Some of us are old enough to remember a time when MA speeding was a $50 flat fine, no add on fees, no insurance surcharges. “Paying your dues to the Speeder’s Club of America.” There was practically zero consequence to speeding. I have a pretty epic driving record from my 20s as a result...
  10. Special gun

    Thats a beautiful piece. For me ... not a gun. I inherited my grandfather’s issued army knife. Victorinox, with wood side pieces. My grandfather was just old enough to be called up for service in the last years of WWI and that was when he was issued the knife. He was conscripted, not an...

  12. Looks like Channel 5 is going after oil filters tonight

    Right when the interview with Maura began, my cat started licking her ass. I’ve never loved my cat more.
  13. 20 year old stopped with backpack with 2 oz of weed and a gun

    Dont omit that it’s nearly BNIB, had less than 50 rounds fired.
  14. Billy Joe Shaver will not be down to shoot you in the face

    You may not have heard of him, but you’ve certainly heard his music. He wrote songs for a lot of people. Super talented guy who had a hard upbringing and overcame it. Would that there were more like him.
  15. What if I own a 2nd house and want to buy a gun in that state?

    I used to have my car registered in VT and a MA DL. When stopped, I’d explain I was from VT but was stationed on a CG cutter in MA and had the cop ever tried to get into a bar in MA w/ out of state ID? Bonus was that let me play the service card w/o being super obvious I was angling for a break.
