Extended Chamber: The Real Culprit In The California Shooting

WTSP.com: Authorities say Long used a .45-caliber Glock 21 handgun during the attack. The weapon was purchased legally. Investigators say it had an extended chamber to hold more rounds.

Just In For Hunting Season, Thompson Center Compass Rifle – Review

Just In For Hunting Season: The Thompson Center Compass Rifle U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The temperatures are cooling, the days are getting shorter, and a reclusive Bambi is getting more visible. Deer season will soon be upon us if it hasn't started in your locale yet. While fewer hunters are hitting the woods year by year, hunting rifle options continue to increase at lower and lower prices. In the past, it was not uncommon for a hunting gun to be only one gun used for decades on end without mu...

Importing Books: Getting date from file attributes

When adding a book by single directory, is there a way for Calibre to fetch the file's 'last modified' date and set that as the date/timestamp? I've been looking at the documentation for calibredb, but I'm afraid command-line isn't really my strong suit. Thanks again.

Incumbent House Losses Not a National Rebuke of ‘Trumpism’

President Trump Delivers a Statement on Midterm Election Results (The White House-video screen capture) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- With the turnover of the House of Representatives to the Democrats in Tuesday’s midterm elections, those who predicted a “Blue Wave” are ecstatic and pointing to a national “thumbs down” for the Donald Trump administration and its policies. While a surface “analysis,” (meaning no real effort besides parroting “progressive” talking points) may look like that’s what h...

Thoughts on new Kindle Paperwhite?

For those who received the new device, how is your experience so far? I loaded up one book, and I have to say I prefer the contrast and light on the PW3 more than the PW4. I changed to the same light settings, book page, font, and settings on both devices, but the light on the PW4 seems a bit dimmer and the text a little less sharp with contrast. I suppose this is a result of the glass type cover instead of the recessed material. Guess I'll have to get used to it. I don't have a voyage so can'...

Specific reason for no color temp adjustment on any Kindles?

Would anyone happen to have direct knowledge from an Amazon engineer as to why they don't release a kindle with the option of adjusting color temp? I would really like to know why the continued omission. Regardless of the comments I've read from others regarding the affect or not affecting the eyes, I find it incredibly relaxing to adjust the temperature and brightness to match the light of the room I am in. For me, this feature is way more important than waterproofing and audible. Audible......

Troubleshooting How do I Upload highlights and notes to Kindle?

I just got the new kindle Paperwhite and want to upload a personal mobi. file that I have been reading, highlighting and noting using the Kindle for PC app. It seems like I can send it to my device, but I cannot send the notes and highlights along with it. I assume that the highlights and notes are contained within the .mbp file within the books directory in Windows, but how do I convert it to the mbp1 file that sits along with the book on the device itself? This is my own personal file that I ...

Your ignorance is showing

The big post election gripe by the losers in the senate is that Dems won the popular vote in senate races. These people are idiots who need to take a civics class. Even Joy Behar said that Republicans won the senate because of gerrymandering. The states are not divided into districts in senate races. She has what I would consider to be a fairly hard job to get. One that, you would think, would require some smarts. Apparently not.

So, there was an election

Went pretty much how everyone thought it would go. I’m looking forward to the gridlock. Good thing Republicans used those two years to pander to us gun owners by giving us what we asked for. Oh, wait. It’s unlikely in the lame duck session. The good thing about gridlock is that congress won’t pass much. The bad news is that what they do pass will suck. Speaking of sucking, Jeff Sessions was fired err resigned. And he sucked.

But they’re A rated on gun laws

California’s ‘Reasonable Regulation’ of Guns Did Not Stop the Thousand Oaks Shooting Funny thing is, I was trying to google up the Brady Campaign’s score card, which listed California as A rated for years. It appears they don’t do that anymore. However, Gabby Giffords’ astroturf organization The Giffords Law Center does. And it gives Cali the solid A.
