Shortly after the '53 Chevy rolled by on Sunday afternoon, lightning struck twice! It's a second-generation Pontiac Firebird! While the snout on the '74-'76 Firebirds was generally the same, they can be distinguished by the placement of their turn signals. A 1974 has them below the bumper, outboard, directly beneath the headlights. A 1976 has them in the intake grilles under the bumper. A '75, like this one, has them in the grille openings above the bumper. This one's a '75 Firebird Formula 4...

High Res

 Got a roll of CineStill 50D in that I'm looking forward to trying out. It's a very fine-grained color film derived from Kodak motion picture film. The low ISO means it's going to want bright light and so I'm looking at the calendar at Weather Underground and it's telling me that either tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday will be my best choices if I don't want to wait until middle of next week. It would be cool to take it down to American Legion Mall and get some shots of the World War Memorial an...

"Safe directions", muzzle aversion, WMLs, and you...

Movies and television are great places to learn how not to handle your guns.In this modern era when tactical teams carry handguns and long guns with weapon-mounted lights and/or lasers, the temptation for directors to show TV operators swarming through buildings with their weapons up in their sightline and the darkness being split by searching beams of light must be irresistible. It really does look dramatic. Not a Hollywood studio. No doubt the technical advisors on the sidelines ar...

Sights to See

I just finished reading The Two-Headed Eagle, the third novel of the four book Otto Prohaska series. In it, our hero...an Austro-Hungarian naval officer by vocation and a u-boat commander since the start of the Great War...is spending some time seconded to the k.u.k.

Lead Star Arms Grunt .223/5.56 AR-15 – Review U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Reviewing AR-15s at this point in American history is pretty interesting to reflect on.  There are so many good builders out there, that it's getting harder and harder to find a bad one.  So when something goes wrong during a review, it takes time to suss out exactly where the problem is.  Optic?  Ammo?  Poor assembly?  As you may have guessed with the lead-in, something did in fact go wrong when testing out the , a 5.6lb...

Epub3->PDF failing in odd way

This is goofy. I'll appreciate any insight into it.

Olbermann Unwittingly Demonstrates Importance of Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Not that he’d have the guts to try that with a hat worn by a MAGA supporter. What do you think he’d like to do with those scissors to the Constitution?

Problem with .azw4 files

Hello. I am using Calibre to manage my Kindle books, which I normally read on an iPad Pro with the Kindle App. I also have the Kindle app on my computer which allows me to download the books so I can convert them into Calibre.

My new problem, which just popped up a couple of weeks ago, is that when the Kindle app downloads the books they are now in .azw4 files instead of .azw or .azw3 files.
