The Guns of Den of Thieves – An Action Movie Without Any Glocks

THE GUNS OF Den of Thieves: Den of Thieves was released to movie screens in January of 2018. This was a while ago obviously but it has been on my brain’s watchlist for two years. Just a little bit ago it made its way onto Netflix and found itself on the top 10 movies currently […] Read More … The post The Guns of Den of Thieves – An Action Movie Without Any Glocks appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

PocketBooks now sold at Newegg

For U.S. buyers... Three PocketBook models, the HD 3 (copper and grey), InkPad Pro 3 and the new InkPad X are now being sold via Newegg, for shipping from the United States. They show "Sold by PocketBook" and "Shipped by Newegg." I don't know if the lesser models will be sold through Newegg in the future or not (probably not). They also sell PocketBook brand cases for these models. At any rate, when I get rid of some of my excess readers, I plan to buy an HD 3, so this is good news for me. ...

Should Chinese Fonts be Embedded in Ebooks?

Jericho Enhanced from IWI, Video Tabletop and Range Review

IWI Jericho Enhanced with small back strap in Teya Freeman's smaller hands. USA – -(Ammoland.com)-  The Jericho has long been a crowd favorite. IWI/IMI took obvious design cues from the CZ-75 and added a little flair.  The original story lasted an astounding 30 years of continued success, but it was time for an update. Is this sequel one that involves second-string actors and a lot less plot or a continuation of the story we all enjoyed in the first time? With the Jericho Enhanced finger groo...

best Kindle DX substitute

I just found out that the lower part of the screen of my beloved Kindle DX stopped working. A hard reset temporarily solved the problem, but it keeps on happening and from what I did read the device is probably lost. It's some years since I skipped the ereaders forums, so I'm not updated anymore: what would you suggest as a replacement, considering that the only items of importance for me are 1) a similar screen size (9.7'') 2) full compatibility with calibre and epub and similar open format...

Catching Up On AK’s With Josiah And Colton Of Palmetto State Armory

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The “Avtomat Kalashnikova” otherwise loosely translated into American means Kalashnikov’s Machine (trust me I googled/wikipedia’d that on the internets machine) or it could also be Kalashnikov’s Laundromat depending on which translation thingamabob you get. OK I’m just messing with you, any gun guy worth his powder already knows more than enough about Kalashnikov’s from every 80’s TV Show and Action Movie. Even if he doesn’t currently actually own one, or even if he h...

Daily Prime - Scourge with Sweep TV Magazine Exclusive

While fans run hot and cold on the Transformers Armada / Micron Densetsu cartoon. One thing most fans agree on is the toys were really good. From the little Mini-cons to the then rather strange Leader class figures, they are still on many collectors' shelves. One of my favorite Prime molds was what we came to call "Bendy" Optimus Prime for his excellent articulation.

Quote of the Day - Larry Correia Edition

From Facebook:If you want to have an economy it is because you want grandma to die, except when Cuomo signed off on an order that actually literally killed thousands of grandmas that is okay because they were going to die anyway, so nobody should be held accountable, and while we are at it should run Cuomo for president because he looks more presidential than Biden, who is senile, and quite possibly a rapist too, but the rapey bits don't count anymore because we only hash tag believe all w...

Question to the Nova2 owners about sun bug

The screen of my Nova2 turns gray as soon as it is exposed to the sun for longer - in the library, in the Notes area, in the settings, in the applications, ..... As soon as I switch to another application, the background shows: the previously black dots are refreshed and become white, but the gray remains. My question to the Nova2 owners: is that the same with you, or is my device defective? Attached Thumbnails

They have a nice little shop that was recently redone inside. While we were there, the store was busy with people looking to trade in some hand...
