  1. Found my dad's favorite gun yesterday.

    I agree the best route is to see a good known local entity. If you have a few options to think about or just want to bounce questions off of people the Smith and Wesson forum is also a great resource.
  2. London/Liverpool/Paris

    The Natural History Museum in London is fantastic Home | Natural History Museum. It's been a long time since I've been t0 London but when I went I took a tour which started by bus and then took a boat ride down the Thames River and ended at the Tower of London. I'd definitely do that again...
  3. Porcupines

    I was reading about fishers (fisher cats) last night. They eat porcupines. "Fishers make repeated biting attacks on the face of a porcupine and kill it after about 25–30 minutes". Gutsy move.
  4. Knife Recommendation

    DON’T get one of these M16® - 10KZ TANTO BLACK WITH TRIPLE POINT™ SERRATIONS . My daughter who is in the Army deployed suddenly last week and this piece of junk with the extra locking mechanism wouldn’t unlock when she needed it most. She told me you have to buy your own knife so your buddy...
  5. Cerakote and similar. Is it rugged?

    Pullman Arms in Worcester have done a few of mine, https://pullmanarms.com/ . They’re very good.
  6. Shooting 22lr

    In winter my gun that sees the most action is my Smith & Wesson Model 41, 22LR, with an Aimpoint red dot. I shoot on a pistol league. It’s a great way to get out, meet friends, decompress, have some competition and keep up the skills. It’s also super cheap. I don’t have a lot of time so each...
  7. Need a source for old maps

    Look here for civil war maps https://www.loc.gov/collections/civil-war-maps/about-this-collection from the Library of Congress. It appears you can download some fairly large copies of the map in electronic format (each one appears to be available in various sizes and formats). You could take...
  8. Co-worker Thread

    I know I've worked with this person. It sounds so familiar. ;)
  9. Posters on Your Bedroom or Dorm Wall

    My professor worked for a major defense contractor before switching to teaching. He was a pretty brilliant guy. I’m sure you’re right.
  10. Posters on Your Bedroom or Dorm Wall

    My college professor had this exact same car and he'd bring it to school in Boston (this was around 1989-90).
  11. Roomba, yes or no?

    I bought a Roomba I7+ a few weeks ago. It was a housewarming gift from my dad. So far so good but it is loud. I have 2 cats and a dog (all with long hair) so we need something to keep the shedding under control. It does a good job keeping the house clean and it unloads itself automatically into...
  12. For those looking for a P365......

    The $382.50 is the cost of a $425 gift card ($400 for the gun and $25 tax). As an FYI I moved a month ago and my address with the firearms records bureau was not updated yet by the state even though they received my paperwork. I’ll have to go back to Cabela’s to pickup my P365 but if you have...
  13. For those looking for a P365......

    So I was at Cabela’s this morning. The P365 is the full Mass version. It includes night sights and two magazines. The body is the standard black nitron. You can buy a gift card for 10% off today, and maybe tomorrow. The total cost including tax is $382.50.
  14. Well, post some military pics.

    My daughter graduated from the US Army Field Artillery school this week. I think this is the first time we haven’t spent Thanksgiving together. She’s traveling to her assignment.
  15. For those looking for a P365......

    I spoke with the gun counter at the Cabela’s in Berlin tonight (8:15 PM Wednesday). He told me the one for the sale is the standard model with night sights and 2 magazines. He said they originally had 300 in stock and so far have sold about 30. Go get em.
  16. For those looking for a P365......

    I didn't have a chance to go but their flyer and the sales person at the gun counter who spoke with me when I called said the sale started today through Friday.
  17. For those looking for a P365......

    Well the sale on P365's at Cabela's starts Wednesday (it's on their flyer and I confirmed with the gun counter sales person today) so if someone buys one let us know what you get. I was going to buy one but after being hit with 2 large surprise bills today I'll probably have to wait until after...
  18. For those looking for a P365......

    Just curious the flyer (as far as I can tell) didn't say the P365 from Cabela's came with only one mag, an unfinished slide and no night sights. Did you read this somewhere or speak to someone who indicated that difference? I called Cabela's in Berlin MA and the person I spoke to at the gun...
  19. Deals and steals

    I called to see if they had a good supply and the person at the gun counter said they had quite a few. I just moved into a new house and money has been flowing like wine but if I can squeeze in the purchase I will.
