I carry one every day as a police officer, also perfectly legally. I have contacted many concealed carry permit holders in possession of firearms at the time of the contact without the slightest threat to me – or anyone else for that matter. That is absurd, and intentionally misleading by those who promote such ignorant conclusions. I like to work near the top of the velocity potential of a given cartridge, but settle on the most accurate load, even if it is not the fastest.
Marble And Venetian Glass Aggregate Bathroom Floor Tiles | Duration 4 Minutes 34 Seconds Did you notice a decrease in overall noise from using this powder to propel some bullets well below subsonic levels? Most shots are less than 25yds, but the. 22lr just hasn’t been cutting it. Load down as far as you can go without sticking a bullet in the bore. Some people spend good money for a rifle, and then cheap out on the scope and ammo. If you use a good scope, properly mounted, and quality ammo, your rifle should perform every bit as well as mine. Have read your article on these 2-3 times & am looking forward to playing with this long-awaited revolver. I report my findings, and let the reader decide for himself/herself which best fits their particular needs. The legal authority of the time was the one who was trying to grab the guns. After the background check, the records are destroyed everyday. I need to know if you could help me find a diagram, that shows the correct way to reassemble the gun. The only shootings that make the news are the ones in which the criminal comes out the winner. I was 12 years of age and have never once used one unlawfully. Because, in exercising that freedom, we have the ability to debate. On the handloading question, load data is provided as a guide, but an experienced handloader can exceed those limits by carefully and progressively increasing powder charges. What works in mine might be excessive in yours, so go slowly, and keep in mind that the game animal hunted will not be able to tell the difference in a few feet-per-second. I need to load some ammo for dispatching raccoons in semi-populated areas and want to keep the noise down really low if possible.

3 Elegant Marble Diy Décor Projects | Duration 6 Minutes 10 Seconds We’ve had a few too many run off to crawl up somewhere, die and stink the place up. What do you think, have any experience with quieter loads? Carefully experiment, and use as heavy of a bullet as will stabilize, preferably a cast lead bullet. Every component has an effect on the performance of the weapon. Never put a whole lot of faith into someone named “nutnfancy”. But my older eyes & slower brain function makes it harder to calculate the hold anymore. I gladly carry either in my left front pocket with confidence. For me to make a comparison and declare one the “best” would be both arrogant and presumptive of me. Me choosing the “best” pocket. 380 would be fair to neither the reader nor the manufacturers. I read a column for very long, my eyes have to struggle to see the letters on the black. Let me know how it works for you, and thanks for the prayers and advice! And its because you have more respect for each other as a result of being one of the only places in the world where freedoms are a part of your rock solid law. Many crimes are stopped by armed citizens, but it does not further the liberal’s agenda to report those, so they are seldom mentioned. Increasingly they are forced to carry anti stab vests as knife crime has soared there, 5 needless deaths a week average. The good news is the majority of the time it is to wipe each other out, but still proof that handgun bans don’t work. Women may not even have mace, a pen knife or a sharpened comb in their handbag as sh ould they kill their attacker and that would mean they (the woman) had premeditated killing someone.

See to it that you are willing to have these professionals in your home before hiring them. For roofers to be licensed to work, they should show their credentials as well as meet the requirements and standards of licensing authority. If you like their portfolio, you’re more likely to work with them. Other certifications, affiliations, and awards will show only the worth of roofers and how they provide their service. This is especially true if you are dealing with your roofing needs. During the time you’re leaving home and roof deck vulnerable for damage from harsh sun, strong winds, and rain. Your roof is responsible for protecting your home, occupants, and property within the potentially damaging elements. Houses that are painted with yellow, red or green go well with any dark colored roofing.

Marble Race #1 | Duration 3 Minutes 58 Seconds Dark-colored roof would absorb heat and may melt snow, so it’s more fitting for a place with cold climate. If the risks of mechanical failure are clear, it is common for customers to seek the best protection possible. It is tough to identify a good contract but there are several things you have to check in fine print to ensure that you will get the most out of your investment. Most contracts include the actual materials used for the project. Roofing warranties also list specific things you can and cannot install, and the things that require permission. But, if something goes not the way you planned, whether it is an injured contractor or damage to your home, it is essential that you aren’t held liable. Before you hire a roofing contractor, see to it that you check their credentials and hire qualified and licensed roofers. You should always take advantage of internet as it is important to get quality roofing services. It is also essential to note that not a lot of established and legitimate roofing companies would go around soliciting roofing solutions. Majority of professional roofing contractors have physical addresses. Regardless if you’re getting roof repairs or complete roof replacement, such roofing services can be costly. Reliable roofing companies would provide such warranties as standard part of the services offered. While there might be circumstances where ambiguity and flexibility might be necessary, you must be wary of roofers who cannot provide written and fixed estimate. The trick is to look for the right balance between such characteristics. These are normally made from pine, redwood, cypress, as well as western red cedar. One of the considerations about a wood roof is its fire susceptibility and whether the building code will let you use wood roof. If you do not want the smooth look, you could purchase steel roofing coated with stone that has the asphalt roofing’s texture. This roofing type also includes combination of cement and fibrous materials. In many cases, you will get textured wood-look with fireproof and durable roof covering. That is the reason why repairs or replacement on your roof must be handled by roofing experts. Once you calculate the expenses of buying the needed materials and tools, you’ll find that cost is much higher. It means that they could deliver great results without mistakes.

Who The Heck Is D. Marble?! (A Flat Earth Discussion) | Duration 26 Minutes 30 Seconds They will carry out repairs or new installation with perfection using the right techniques and products. It will provide homeowners peace of mind due to the fact that new installation or repair is protected regardless of what happens after the project is done. Roofing experts know the materials that are of high quality and those that suit your unique roofing needs. For that reason, you have to hire professional roofers since they have necessary equipment and gear to ensure one’s safety while doing their job. Aside from that, they can overcome any challenges or issues that they can detect after carrying out detailed roof inspections. Therefore, it’s good to leave headaches behind and let roofing contractors do the best for your roofing needs. The meeting might be good, yet you need to do consultation with professionals who don’t charge about it since they’re confident regarding their satisfactory servicers and would end up making you happy clients of them instead of charging some unnecessary consultation fees. You would require more time to for where to begin and end. Some roofing material wholesalers and retailers do charge various prices in comparison to the typical price of various things. The best roofing contractors are well aware of their reputation in the market and they would always do anything to keep their good image to their clients. It is, therefore, imperative to contemplate the amount of cash that you need to set aside. The majority of companies dealing with domestic removals calculate quotes on the basis of cubic footage of the things that require moving. The amount of stuff you need to shift will have an impact on the cumulative price of moving. It is, however, critical to get an appropriately sized moving van. If you require additional crew members, you will have to pay extra for each one of them. A moving service might add an extra charge to the hourly rate or merely include a fixed fee in addition to your other moving expenses. Similarly, you might incur more on the moving cost if your property is located up a narrow lane or on the street having restricted parking.

How Cast Stone Products Are Made | Duration 3 Minutes 29 Seconds Some house moving companies break down the expenses on a mile-by-mile basis while others charge a flat hourly rate. There are other things that may go wrong, which results to bigger issues in the future. Regardless if you are looking a complete new roof installation or a roof repair, there are many qualities of roofing contractors that you should look out for. Besides, it’s your home you are inviting contractors to work on. For beginners, it basically means that they’re qualified to handle the roofing projects properly and they need some means to tackle the roofing project. Aside from being licensed, contractors should be insured to protect their clients in case some things go wrong and lead to the property’s destruction. With majority of roofers, you may see the projects they’ve handled in previous years and have a chance to select a style from there. You may ask for credentials from roofers to ensure they’re certified to do their job. With professional roofing service from reliable roofers, you can be assured that your roof will be installed or repaired quickly. Imagine how roofing materials put up with the sun’s scorching heat, heavy snow, strong winds, and pounding rain daily and throughout the year. Gray-or blue-walled homes must either have a dark gray or black roof. Houses painted cream, brown or tan must have brown roof or combination of cream and brown. You may either have undulating roofing for your house or go flat. The reason behind it is that it could affect your home’s indoor temperatures. For instance, a light-colored roof would deflect sunlight and help keep your house cool, which makes it good for hot climates. On the other hand, with non-mechanical items such as roofing, most buyers fail to realize that it is equally important to have a good warranty in place. If products fail despite the proper installation, this kind of coverage ensures that you will receive compensation. Some items such as satellite dish can affect the weatherproofing of the roof and there might be a need for regulation. This is a less common coverage compared to contracts that cover manufacturing problems. See to it you read and understand the fine print to make sure that every promised coverage is really there.

Entry #9 Fr | Duration 3 Minutes 36 Seconds That is the reason why reputable commercial and residential roofing companies will be insured and provide workers’ compensation and general liability. It’s a tactic primary used by low quality contractors who are scamming other people. Therefore, it is crucial to protect your investment through securing the warranties on the job you’re paying for. Normally, low cost roofing comes with a short lifespan while costly roofing has better longevity. They are a good choice for steeply-pitched roofs, which can show off nicely textured aesthetic that they offer naturally. The wood roofs may be treated to be retardant from fire, yet they will not be fireproof and fire-resistant properties could degrade. They are a combination of backing, mineral granules, and asphalt. Majority of asphalt roofing products are priced economically even if some top of the line premium products may rival the cost of pricey roof types. This roofing is intended to mimic some forms of roofing while taking advantage of benefits that such alternate materials offers. Other products are also made to mimic some kinds of roofing like wood shake. Take note that roof protects the entire structure of your house along with each of your personal belongings and family members. Moreover, they have the right tools required to complete the job depending on roof situation. They’ll ensure that your roof remains undamaged and safe for a long period of time. If there are some problems with the roof in a given time frame, it’ll be inspected and the issue would be resolved without any additional charges. It ensures that repairs or roofing services last for a long time. Other than that, they have access to the quality materials at a wholesale cost. That is the reason why roofers have invested all their resources to get safety gear to guarantee safety of every roofing professional. Hiring roofers is better than having to buy safety equipment that you might not use again. Roofers will have an access to the right materials, supplies, and equipment to carry out the work successfully. Other than that, you’d be much aware of the product choice for your roofing. Being unaware of norm products, you’d buy items at an extra cost. With this in mind, expect that you will get nothing but better and topnotch quality roofing services that you always deserve. However, getting a specific figure when calculating the cost of moving house is an uphill task, after all, the price will vary from one removal service provider to another and from one contract to the next. For instance, the average expenditure for moving from a 1-bedroom home will be less as compared to relocating from a 3-bedroom property. You will be required to pay more if your belongings are bulky as compared to moving lesser things. This will ensure that you take a single trip between your current home and your new one thus the move will be executed more expediently. Long distance relocation might require you to pay about £450 for one bedroom to £1000 for four bedrooms depending on the calculations of the specific company you choose. The bottom line is that the cost of your move is dictated by the distance you’re looking to travel. Extra services that could cost you extra charges include storage, packing, dismantling and reassembling of furniture and cleaning services to mention a few. For instance, you might require special equipment for relocating fine art and antiques plus the movers use more time and material to pack such items.

The front baffle, 1 ½” thick, is heavily braced to prevent resonancies while the whole enclosure is internally and externally damped. The circuit is impedance corrected and offers a so-called “electronic damping”. Europeans may have a different idea on what a mini-monitor should look like, size-wise. They can reveal virtually anything that reaches their binding posts (the good, the bad and the ugly). Actually, many audiophiles don’t want something close to reality, they simply need an artificial and deformed picture of the real event. The point is that these speakers are better than the simple algebraic sum of their parts. Voices and acoustical instruments possess that touch of finesse that makes every listening session a pure pleasure. Being a rather small sealed enclosure one can’t expect either extremely deep nor powerful bass. No goose-bumps and wall shaking dynamics, though: all you get is a correct, mature and self-controlled dynamic performance. Stable as a marble slab, so unmistakably real to seem unreal. An alignment tool is supplied to properly toe-in the speakers in your listening room (best angle: 100 degrees). Choose rigid stands with spikes, if you have a carpeted floor. Thanks to the extreme transparency of these speakers, finding your favourite option will be extremely easy. Choose the best ancillaries and partners you can afford, the performance gets better at each upgrade you can make, regardless of price. The woofers definitely need some time to perform at their best. Something better should be supplied, considering the tag price. And once you listen to them, you tend to forget their price, quite easily. Some will find these speakers a bit on the dry side, with lean bass and limited frequency response. The truth can be shocking, but once you discover it, you will find it hard to look back. It is obvious that you spent a great deal of time with the speaker system and that that you are an expert in your field. My sincere thanks to you for this commentary and you considerable efforts. So, when you turn up the volume, you are amplifying the music and not the customary noise, distortion and color. It is also a good practice to listen to them farther away as the farther you get from them the fuller they sound (9 1/2 feet is optimum). If you are concerned about safety, a little blue tack/poster putty on the bottom of the speaker will hold it securely in place. Deep bass has a very long bass wavelength that needs to be propagated and this cannot be accomplished in smaller rooms. The presentation will become more uniform, clearer, smoother and show more spacial cues. Plus, you can tighten them as hard as you can without deforming anything which is a must for heavy/awkward cables. The already bomb-proof enclosure has been made even more rigid by means of brass reinforcement bars on front of cabinet. Rounded edges and corners allow to keep sound diffractions low. Cardas, of the “no-stress” kind (a single nut locks the binding posts simultaneously, see pic above). The ears should be in axis with the midpoint between woofer and tweeter. Hence, though not exactly “mini”, these speakers are “monitors” without any reasonable doubt. You can detect every fault in your system (or recording) but the way these faults are “exposed” is seldom irritating. With the network in place, the sound became a bit shut-in and confused. Not the ultimate in bass response and drive, but considering the size and type of the enclosure, the performance in this area is still very good. Vented cabinets are often referred as boomy and slow in the bass. Bass isn’t explosive but dynamically accurate: variations are delivered with “in scale” accuracy and correct timing. Rockers and headbangers may find this attitude a bit too “shy” but, dudes, these are high precision monitors, not “fight for your rights to party” speakers. The image these monitors can create is stunning even after a “casual” positioning but it really becomes something “magic” when you find the perfect height and orientation. I know it is hard to believe until you experience it by yourself. This is the most fascinating aspect of these monitors: a huge, extremely detailed, pin-point focused. After all, high fidelity is all about mystification! The manufacturer claims these are a “friendly” load for the amplifier. Right out of the box, the bass range is extremely dry and lightweight. Only bare wire or forks are accepted and that locking nut isn’t the most user-friendly device one can think of. The warranty on these speakers is a reassuring 5 years on parts and labour. We have spent 8 years refining it to a point where all of the resonance and distortion have been damped out of the system. Place it right on the pedestal so that energy can pass easily from the enclosure to the stand. But if the amp is not terminated you will notice a very large improvement in the sound. This is quite a bold statement to make but it has been said by many and not just me. The issue of their user friendly nature, well, after you get used to them and use them for a while you’ll find a way of accomplishing what you need that is far easier than conventional posts. I agree with your description of what a monitor is and what it should do. But this increased energy cannot be used in small rooms anyway because it will just beat on the room resonant frequency.

Notes On The Troubleshooting and Repair Of Computer and Video Monitors by repairfaq.org

What is this goop around some electrolytic capacitors and other components? If in doubt about your abilities or experience, leave repair and internal adjustments to a professional. Both the video adapter and the monitor were limited to 2, 4, 16, or a whopping 64 colors depending on the graphics standard. In principle, an analog monitor is capable of an unlimited number of possible colors and intensities. Note: we use the term ‘auto-scan’ to describe a monitor which accepts a wide (and possibly continuous) range of scan rates. The number of distinct shades of gray or distinct colors is a lot more limited. And last but not least, the cost is still somewhat higher due both to the increased complexity of flat panel technology and lower production volumes (though this is certainly increasing dramatically). Access to the backlight lamps might substantial disassembly. Nonetheless, a variety of technologies are currently competing for use in the flat panel displays of the future. The chance of success is vanishingly small and it’s very likely that even with great care, damage could occur to the panels or circuitry. Interlaced scanning posts 1/2 of the frame called a field – first the even field and then the odd field. It is usually not acceptable for computer graphics, however, as thin horizontal lines tend to flicker at 1/2 the vertical scan rate. Long persistence phosphors decrease flicker at the expense of smearing when the picture changes or moves. Horizontal scan rate – the frequency at which the electron beam(s) move across the screen. It is what may cause failure if scan rate speed limits are exceeded due to the component stress levels in high performance deflection systems. Nearly all visible colors can be created from a mix of primaries with suitable spectral characteristics using this additive color system. The quality and cost of these monitors ranges all over the map. Circuitry in the monitor identifies the video scan rate automatically and sets up the appropriate circuitry. However, as computer performance improved, it quickly became clear that a dedicated display was essential. Black and white, gray scale, and monochrome monitors use a subset of the circuitry (and generally at lower power levels) in color monitors so much of it applies to these as well. Multi-scan monitors sync at two or more distinct scan rates. Only the central part of your field of vision will have the proper brightness, contrast, and color rendition. Since it is a reflective device, the light source can be as bright as needed. The physical resolution is also probably still too low to really justify the large screen size for computer displays. But to what extent it is used for computer monitors is still unclear. Non-interlaced or progressive scanning posts the entire frame during each sweep from top to bottom. High quality, often high cost, utilitarian case (read: ugly), underscan option. While cost is not a strict measure of picture quality and reliability, there is a strong correlation. Thus, auto-scan monitors evolved to accommodate the multiple resolutions that different programs required. Multi-scan monitors, while simpler than true auto-scan monitors, will still have much of the same scan rate detection and selection circuitry.

Mean Green Apocalyptic Military Machine. -[Fallout AU SI?] by forums.spacebattles.com

He wasn’t no pussy, he’s a stone-old killer who’d kill any dumb bitch just for looking at him wrong. If they were dumb enough to wander into raider territory, they deserved whatever they had coming to them. He took a drag of his ciggy; maybe when he finished he’d be in the mood to have some fun with the new chicks. There were about thirty total in his particular band of raiders, but he didn’t bother learning their names. Oh yeah, he’d give that fine piece of ass the best experience she’d ever have. The maxim, safety in numbers being one of the paradigms of anyone in the post-apocalyptic core region. Even more so, it was generally considered particularly dumb, if not suicidal traveling through the wastes in bright daylight unless in groups armed to the teeth, and particularly savvy when it came to living off the land. A sickening splatter coming from behind making him turn his head, not before dropping his still-lit cigarette to the sand below him. Looking back in that brief second, he envied the lucky bastard that got their head blown to pieces. Explosions rocked the earth around him, raiders only now realizing something was very wrong. Twin “thumps” shot out from near the top of one of the killer machines, grenades screaming through the sky before neatly falling on the campfire. As if out of some nightmare, twin blades of metal pierced through him, lifting the dying man high up in the sky as something suddenly appeared from thin air. The man didn’t even get halfway in lifting the mini-nuke launcher to firing position before a burst from the bot’s arm-mounted miniguns shredded him into red confetti. Already, the sounds of screaming and gunfire started appearing farther and farther away. The sound and feeling of bones cracking before giving under the immense pressure searing like fire through his veins, and he couldn’t help the muffled screams into the sand his head was pushed into. Roughly, he was forced around into the lifeless eyes of a monster. Not to mention this one had jammed a gun straight into his left cheek. He could see heavy armor-plating underneath the armored duster flowing gently in the wind, noting the additional green armor on the shoulders and forearms on the reinforced material. Below that, the pants seemed thicker and less pliable than normal materials, ending with green-brown armored boots at the end. Get away with what you and your little band have been doing however long you liked? He spat, he screamed, he threw whatever pleading between the profanities he launched; somehow knowing of the amused gaze beneath that damnable helmet. Well, a known reputation could either be a good or bad thing this early on. Better safe than sorry (or no longer alive to be sorry), eh? From the ashes of nuclear annihilation, mankind—divided, and broken as it was—survived. Even as the world came to an end—decades later, men still fought, and died in the ruins of the old world. The strong ruled and lived to brutalized the weak at their pleasure. While those towns might’ve been too much for unorganized raiders, it’d be easier snagging people and supplies on-route to them in the first place. Heavy with anticipating, he and the rest dug in along both sides of the road, waiting in ambush. At the end of it, most of the men were dead, the brahmins and their loads snagged, along with all the broads. Giving a side glance to the others, he went back to smoking. The mood in the camp was jubilant, as much as it could be for a bunch of scruffy raiders. He craned his ears before realizing what was happening, grimacing that one or two of the others had gotten a head-start over him. He’d get his turn eventually, perking up at the thought of that one blonde with the tearful baby-blue eyes and fine rack hangin’ off her chest. This part of the wasteland was known for regular bandit attacks, hence why most people stuck to the safer pre-war roads for traveling long distances. A massive crack echoed through the desert, more akin to some close-range cannon blast. It was as if time slowed, and he was a prisoner to the hell that was enfolding around him, helpless. Massive bursts of gunfire split the sky, screams ensued, people started dying. The machine didn’t pay him any attention… it didn’t need to. It shared the same olive-green tone as the bigger mechs, with a white star in the center. Maybe it was the dust in his eyes, but it really looked a bitch with big tits, strange head and sharp sword-hands aside. Incoherent yelling once more drew him out of his stupor as one of the rapidly dwindling raiders started for the only fat-man. One of the metallic monstrosities boomed something in its deep voice as it swiveled towards the newest threat. More of those demon-women things started decloaking, slicing unaware raiders into pieces before they realized they were even there. Now they were being torn apart like a deathclaw through paper! He ran, ran with all the fear pumping through him and the wiry strength in his legs. Dust kicked up behind him as he put his hope, his only chance of salvation into running as far and fast as he could. Hope shone brightly in his soul, he was going to live! Then, all of a sudden, something swung around from in front of him, as a blur caught him across the neck and smashed him into the ground. It couldn’t have been one of the machines, the dark tan-green coloration was too different. Eyes rapidly flickering across the person kneeling—forcing him into the ground—as he tried to avoid the glassy crimson gaze of the helmet. There was a bandolier of ammunition strung across the torso, heavy plating reaching from the person’s waist up to their neckline. In that single instant, his body slowly inched down to his final resting place, eyes glassy. I thought that he had weak muscles so is he limited to using light guns with low recoil? Otherwise, he’ll just accelerate the rate his body starts falling apart.
