You don't have to remove the cylinder from the crane, per se, but the crane and cylinder should be removed periodically for cleaning and inspection. The crane can be the weakest link in the entire assembly especially if one uses the flick of the wrist or palm slap cylinder close methods. You also want to get any lead or carbon residue out of the hinge and oil it to keep it from wearing.

Have you ever looked at a person and couldn't tell if 'it' was male or female?

I have a few times.

One time, a guy (average looking, NOT feminate looking) walked into the office, and asked for something. He had a really feminate voice. (picture how a cute blonde sounds. It was that kind of voice) I don't think it was naturally like that if you know what I mean.

I was at WalMart once with my granddaughter. She was about 4 and it was pretty crowded, around Christmas time. The little one points to a person and in a fairly loud voice says, "Is that a boy or a girl?" I was very embarrassed.

A couple of years ago I was in San Francisco at the end of the (gay) Pride thing (I work for a company that sets up booths at the event and we were waiting to go in and tear things down). While waiting I was talking to a cop who was sitting in the paddy wagon waiting for some "customers". One of the other guys on my crew went across the street to see if we could start working and he calls me on the cell and said "Dude! Look up the street and tell me what you see!"
I look up and walking across the street was a group of people, the first three were some hot! hot! hot looking ladies in bikinis tops with "boy shorts". I tell the cop to take a look. Knowing the territory, so to speak, I looked down to see if they were carrying a "package", but they looked like they were either the real deal or they had had the complete surgery. Behind them were three or four more, um, people, all wearing well-filled bikini tops, and boy shorts, but this group had a "package" down below. Behind them was another couple, Bikini tops, jean shorts, package...... and full-blown biker beards!!!!!

I laughed and tried to get a picture but was too slow. The cop looks at me with a look of utter disbelief and says: "Man!!! Those were DUDES!!! and I said "Seriously? and just how long have you worked in the city?"

Another story is one my buddy who owns the booth company tells. He was 18 and it was the first time he did this job. When he showed up in the truck a tall blond walked up to the truck and my buddy was thinking "Hey, this is looking pretty nice!" up until tall blond "gal" opened "her" mouth and asked in a deep baritone "Are you with ABC Company?"

His advice ever since then was to tell people when in the City, nothing is as it appears.

Okay, I know there must be more than one thread on "9mm vs. .380 calibers" but when I use search I can't find any. I would like to review others opinions on these two calibers without starting another thread. Can anyone find a thread that discusses this for me?

I have a .380 and still wonder if I shouldn't have gotten a 9 mm. Everyone I ask has their own opinion and I still don't know which is better for self defense.

It's a personal preference. 9mm is slightly more powerful than .380, but 380 is smaller and easier to conceal. Either one can stop someone with good shot placement.
