Building a .22LR Military Trainer with Brownell’s New BRN-22 Receiver

Bottom, the BRN-22 Receiver .22LR Military Trainer, M1903 A3 Springfield Top GRAND RAPIDS, MI USA -(Ammoland.com)- When I was a kid, perhaps thirteen or fourteen, I found myself interested in old military rifles. Like many boys in the early 2000’s, my first rifle was a Russian Mosin Nagant, of course chambered for the very powerful 7.62x54R cartridge. I still have a great deal of affection for the old warhorse, but it was not at all the best gun for a boy of my age and frame to learn the fundam...

Random letters in bold...

Hey all... I've converted from epub to mobi, and all is well, except this one weird thing. You can see the "k" is randomly bolded. it isn't in the code, just in the preview. It shows up in epub, and not mobi. If I change the "k's" to "j's", they are unbolded. Part of the title on the page is in bold, like every 3rd or 4th letter as well. Any thoughts? thanks in advance! carrie

The Newest Colchicums On The Block

I know a lot more about colchicums than I once did, thanks to the internet. And now I’m growing colchicums I never would have known about, if it weren’t for the internet and the people I’ve been able to “meet” through the internet. A man with extensive connections in the Dutch bulb trade–I’ll call him Mr. C–sent me some colchicums from his family’s collection. To be more accurate, he sent me a spreadsheet listing all the bulbous plants in this collection, and I limited myself to colchicums t...

Automotif CXLX...

Parked up out front of the salon where the old Ford Falcon sometimes is parked, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this F100 belongs to the same person. Looks to be a '73 or '74. I want to believe that there's a 390cid V-8 under that hood.Photos snapped from across the street with the Samsung TL500. It's an absolutely brilliant little enthusiast's point-and-shoot. Fast glass, a 10MP 1/1.7" sensor, full PASM controls and RAW shooting... It's too bad Samsung decided to bail on the camera...

API documentation

Is there any documentation available for the content server endpoints? I found a thread where it was recommended to grep for a certain string, which I did, but I’m more looking for detailed inputs/outputs. My approach so far has just been to try calling endpoints with varying inputs and see what I get out.

Hunting Black Bear With The Ruger AR 556 In 450 Bushmaster

We discussed this earlier, and a reader sends this my way. I have been involved in shooting probably 100 bear or more in my life so I have seen what works well and what does not. You would expect that bigger is better, but I would argue against that logic. Many magnums (IE: 7mm Rem. Mag, 300 WSM, 28 Nosler, etc.) are what people show up with because of this thought. These rounds tend to penetrate through and through and then dump the rest of their remaining energy (typically a lot) into the tree...

TFB TUTORIAL: Using The ATF Eforms NFA Application System

Can we all agree that paying a $200 tax and waiting six to nine months to cut a rifle barrel from 16.1 inches to 14.5 inches is extremely ridiculous? Yet, if you live in the United States, legally making a rifle with short barrel requires an application process that makes car loan and college application […] Read More … The post TFB TUTORIAL: Using The ATF Eforms NFA Application System appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Peaceful Reading :: A Month in the Country ~ J.L.Carr

Another peaceful read... I've recently helped establish a new book group that has started to meet in the church that we can see from our home. This village has no meeting place and so our new churchwarden is injecting a new lease of life into the building with an art group (Bookhound has joined) and various other groups and events. I love to open the bedroom curtains to this view in the winter... and this view in summer... Not our parish, but as we are right on the boundary this our near...

XtraLight’s Hyatt LAX Grand Ballroom Project

As part of an historic renovation of the former Concourse Hotel near LAX, the Hyatt Regency Corporation wanted a highly functional, beautiful, and energy-efficient lighting installation for their 14,000 square foot grand ballroom. But they ran into a grave problem early in the process, the lighting manufacturer provided an unacceptable product: “the sub-par fixture didn’t meet any of the standards set forth during the specification. Not only was it poorly constructed, it had dark spots from inco...

Gun Control – Where Were the Usual Actors?

Opinion by Dave Dolbee A major push for gun control, two weeks before a midterm election, would not help their gun control agenda—it seldom does anyway. However, in this case, it would incite gun owners—who vote Republican for the most part—and sent them to the election booth. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- A murderous rampage – there simply isn’t a better definition of what happened two weeks ago at Tree of Life Synagogue. The murderer and that is a key, and honest description—not the shooter as the...

In some ways, they went very well – the GOP took out four Democrats who voted against Donald Trump’s pro-Second Amendment judicial nominees, while confirming anti-Second Amendment judges selected by Barack Obama. In governor’s races, some previously pro-Second Amendment governorships went the other way due to retirements,...

image size reduced

Hi Sigil friends! I noticed on my Kindle ereader that some of the book cover images in the backmatter of my ebooks were about a third of the size they should be. The ones that looked normal looked like screenshot 75. The ones that looked reduced look like screenshot 74. What's up with that? Should the images in the backmatter (because I noticed that when I first open a cover in Sigil that the width and height stuff are automatically there) always be like the example in screenshot 75?

Maryland Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order Ends with Dead Gun Owner

Lenovo Yoga Book 2018: eInk Keyboard, Second Screen

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018...-now-in-e-ink/ Quote: For 2018, Lenovo ditched the halo keyboard and paper pad and opted for an E Ink panel that can switch between keyboard, note, and e-reader modes.

Some Chromebooks Won’t Get Linux Apps. Here’s What You Can Do Instead

When Chromebooks first began getting support for Android apps, there was some confusion as to just which Chromebooks would be supported. The same thing is starting to play out—though to a lesser degree—with support for Linux apps. You’ve always been able to install Linux applications (or other Linux-based operating systems) on Chromebooks through a workaround called Crouton because Chrome OS is based on the Linux kernel. The new method for installing Linux apps is much easier than before since...

Samsung Shows Off Its Folding Phone: Here’s Everything We Know

There’s been talk of foldable displays for years at this point, with Samsung always at the forefront of those rumors.

The inside panel—the larger, folding one—was said to be 7.3-inch. The size of...
