Re: The Last Gun You Bought

A local dealer had this .45ACP Sig 1911 Emperor Scorpion listed on Armslist. Took a ride today and added it to my collection of adult playthings... http://www.paulberetta.com/Handgun%20Photos/images/Sig%20Emperor%20Scorpion%201911%20Left.JPG http://www.paulberetta.com/Handgun%20Photos/images/Sig%20...

Constructive COVID-19 activities....learn some new skills

You can only "netflix & chill", clean, eat, complain, argue on the 'net, get intoxicated, etc...so much before boredom is driving you insane. What is everyone doing to either learn or hone a skill that you are lacking in?? I've been working on new BBQ rub, sauce and dish ideas over the weekend. Othe...

In addition we have 4 very busy smaller grocery stores- one medium size chain (Kroger subsidiary), two small local chains and one small...

Re: The pronunciation of "Bowie"

What you all are missing here is that this is not a name in England. It is the name from Louisiana with heavy French, Indian, and Creole, influences on the pronunciation. Boowee is how it has been pronounced for generations. This is not unknown. It is well known. David Bohwee is not Jim Boowee and ...
