The 38 S&W is ...... cute . I have a police positive chambered in that and your lucky if that round will puncture a car door at 5 ft .
Also have a K frame knock off from spain in a 32 wcf and that lil bugger has a bit of punch but I am afraid to shoot that gun much . Needless to say both rounds are quite pricey .

And dang it End of Watch is a bad ass movie

So, the remote for my tv/cable box has been acting poorly lately. It was not responding well to me pressing the buttons and I'd have to press hard and many times to get it to change a channel, etc. I was getting ready to call the cable company and tell them I needed a new remote, that the buttons on mine were not responding well. Then my daughter suggested I try changing the batteries........

Really, I'm not stupid.......usually.

It reminds me of one of our court reports, who told me her car remote had died and she called her husband for a second set.

I asked her if she tried using the key in the door. :rolleyes : She did a face palm and called her husband back. Lol!

Saw something cool on an older pickup, maybe late 1960's. It was a straight-side bedded truck, but it had a step about halfway up the bed wall on the driver's side. The "step" looks like a semicircle sunk into the side of the bed wall and has a chromed tread inside. I have never seen another like it.


edit* I just remembered seeing another "step" like it, on a military airplane.

I couldn't find it but will look again. It was cool and would be a heck of a way to hide a ding.

Random thought. I wish this night were over. Doing another double shift because I'm broke as hell.
