“Still purrs, like it was yesterday.” — Batman tanking out the Bat Tank in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns after ten years. There is a certain degree of Truth in Television involved in this trope. Often the newer and more “advanced” a technology is the more points of failure it can have. Older.

I also Have a Dream! Martin Luther King, Jr. Certainly, my cause may not be as grandiose as his or others like him, but there is at least a similarity. King spoke of equality; my dream is for the same. He sought equality for mankind. I want an equal playing field in the business community and a halt to the practice of being treated as, at best, a second class citizen or at worse, a pariah or blight on the liberal community. Yes, I am a gun owner; a person among many who feels like a target of persecution.

Along with others, I have passed a Federal Bureau of Investigation Instant Background check in order to buy and posses a long gun. I am one of millions who has passed rigorous background surveillance simply to be able to handle a hand gun within New York State. Citizens who have demonstrated their mental stability, community worthiness, legal right and simply by being a good and honest person should not be looked at, as a threat, but as an ally.

I have been an FFL Dealer for nearly forty years regulated by the erratic laws in New York State, ones that govern sales, possession, use, registration, carrying and other restrictions, but are not simply created and voted on by our Legislature, but are entwined among a myriad of agencies, judges and burocrats to do with as they will.

Springfield Rifles – M1 Garand For Sale

I really enjoyed it. These production lines were the real wonder weapons. Blastattack It would be economically impossible to make one. As a Machinist myself, that is not a project any sane person would want to take on as a job.

This is a forum for owners, collectors and fanciers of military weapons.

White braid band a little grubby Patent leather black peak with brass edge. The pistol has a good working action. It has an overall grey patina. A good solid pistol but there has been some pitting- please see photo. In my opinion this does not detract from a desirable Colt New Line, especially as it has matching serial numbers and is a scarce two digit number. This replaces the bottom front furniture on the AK and also clamps to the bayonet lug. Comes with leather end cap. Deactivated with fully moving parts and working dry-fire action Comes with deactivation certificate.

For sale to buyer over 18 only. We will only send to mainland UK address. Complete with deactivation certificate. Buyer must be over 18 years of age We will only ship to address in the UK mainland. This is complete in its wooden crate.

Doing It for the Art

Enthusiasts take an old steam engine out of the museum. The Dark Knight Returns after ten years. Cutting-edge technology is usually superior to the older stuff. But sometimes heroes can’t use the latest equipment: So what do they do? They take the older stuff out of storage and make do with it.

Honda commercial, CG, right? It could’ve been, but why not do it for the art instead? Anime and Manga Osamu “God of Manga” Tezuka continually revised his work and removed stories from circulation that he felt weren’t up to par , created experimental works just for the hell of it, and is even said to have died saying “Please, God , let me work! Realize that when he did this, there was no manga industry, so Tezuka was turning down a guaranteed career as a doctor in favor of something that could’ve just as easily crashed and burned.

Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. Though he hated the weekly format of the manga, the Executive Meddling , and being obligated to make his work a Franchise Zombie , his works never declined in quality—in fact, it became even more complex and interesting—and he always took special care about making sure no plot holes were created.

Army Ordnance Serial Number Assignments Understanding Serial Numbers – Understanding Dates of Manufacture Serial number blocks were assigned by the Ordnance Department on an as needed basis, generally in response to the awarding of a contract to a given manufacturer. The serial number was placed on the carbine receiver during the manufacturing process of the receiver, not when the carbine was finally assembled. The decision for which receivers would be used for the U.

Carbine Models M1, M1A1, or M2 were made well after the receiver was completed as all of these models used the same receiver. Given the high volume production, receivers were generally assembled as part of a carbine within a few months after the receiver was serial numbered. However, dating a carbine by it’s serial number alone is difficult and not always accurate given the circumstances inherent with manufacturing and the logistics situation during the time the carbines were manufactured.

A few of the manufacturers at various times used subcontractors to manufacture their receivers. Serial numbered receivers that failed to pass inspection were set aside as rejects if the defect s could not be brought up to minimum standards. As solutions to old problems were learned, some of the same receivers were brought back online and completed i.
