Your pics made the wife remind me she's only just got over her vertigo.


I prefer beer but it's a nice feeling sinking your first one after a month at sea.

Bama... we have another on the way so my discretionary spending has been shut down. I get one more toy w/ tax return $... I'm looking at several options. Going to a gunshow next weekend and might come back w/ something.

Looking for an original Type 2 P53 or Lorenz but my eye is out for a more modern arm as well. All depends upon what I can afford & get away w/.

Roger I know you to be a civilized man, if it's British Ale I expect you drink it warm (no wonder y'all lost the empire; barbarians) if it's a lager I hope and pray you drink it cold... though I have my suspicians about that too.

I'm partial to a Black & Tan as that's the only way I can stomach Guiness. I'm fond of Bass as well. Prefer ale to lagers actually. And Good Scotch or Cognac to either. Though I have to admit I occasianlly sneak a nip at the boss's stash of Sherry. Think I better restock her stash she hasn't touched since she found out we were expecting a new little one... I wonder if she'll get suspicious. Forget that time to get a new bottle for her stash and her Chamberg and the Pama. ARGGGGHHH!!! I have to replenish her whole stash. It's not fair, she's no longer a cheap drunk.

We lost the Empire? When did that happen?

Michael Jackson, the beer writer not the other idiot he knows nothing about beer, once said the search for the perfect pint should last a lifetime so I'm taking his advice and still looking.

It's ok no need to worry, I drink my lager cold and my ale not so cold, notice I didn't say warm:)

My wife doesn't drink but you wouldn't believe the distance she can smell it at, even down the phone sometimes.

Johann congrats to you and your lovely wife on a sibling for your daughter.  By the way did you ever find the pictures you were searching for a few months ago.

Getting drinks to satisfy the American palate in the FORMER Mother County is tough. When I was there it was a blooming heat wave in the 90s and trying to get a cold drink was next to impossible. I'd gross the waitresses out by asking for iced tea and would always have to tell them I want more than one puny ice cube. I finally found a drink called Shandy (half lemonade and beer) that was the only thing they served iced cold over there. They'd tease me as I drank my "Kiddie Beer" and they drank their liquid fresh form Secretariat's bladder but I rather enjoyed it and brought back a case of the stuff with me. I've always thought Shandy would catch on with American audiences but I've never seen it over here except in specialty stores or bars that serve over 100 different beers.

David, if you ask for a shandy in a pub here it's usually mixed for you, half beer half lemonade there's no need to buy the specially mixed variety.

Try half 7 Up with half Bud and there you have it, Shandy, at last a tasty use for Budweiser:D

Sorry, but here in America we call it "Buttwiper."  And to think...I don't even drink.

No Susan, never could find the pic of that B-52 pilot mini. My understanding was that she mounted the mini on top of a trophy w/ the "1000 hours" engraved on the base.

Bama, the Lorenz is an Austrain rifle musket M1854. They didn't typically approach the quality of the Enfield or Springfield as they were hand fitted by armory smiths. Though the quality was generally pretty good as was the accuracy if the right ammo was used. It was in the US on both sides of the line in both .54 & .58. Second most common imported long arm after the Enfield.

I prefer the rifle or rifle musket to pistols. The .454 Cassul will about take your arm off & IMO anything like that is way overkill. I prefer 9mm for my needs.

Roger-

  Since Ed is an advocate of the .45, my guess is that he means this guy.  :D

I like my 9mm w/ standard FMJ, not fashionable but functional. If I can't make him stay down w/ 3 shots, 2 center mass 1 face, then I'm doing something wrong... or in serious trouble. Anyway for home defence I'll stick w/ the model 37 Ithaca. For carry I prefer the lighter arms. To me a pistol is a belly gun, stick it in his belly and pull trigger, repeat as needed. For what I need it for my 9mm CZ is ample.

I like the classic M1911A1 but that's about the only .45 I've ever liked. I don't really have any use for pistols... shotgun or rifle thank you much.

Johan I was thinking of the two Civil War pictures you asked about a few months ago.  Did you ever find them?  The ones that got accidently deleted by a small scholar at your home .
