Thank you so much for that statement. I felt it was 'healthier' for my kids to divorce than to stay in a marriage that was not a good or happy one. There was arguing, etc. I don't think "staying together for the kids" is a good thing. My daughter had a friend in high school where they were "staying together for the kids" and the parents fought all the time, the kids pitted one against the other for permission to do things, the parents slept in separate bedrooms, etc. Tell me that's healthier than two parents at peace in their own homes sharing their kids. I tried to be the best example I could be in 'independence'. I made it a point to stay single and raise my kids. I wanted them to see one can survive without someone 'taking care of them'. I must say my kids are pretty independent and successful. All I know is I did my best.

I absolutely agree that two peaceful homes are better than one bad home where a child feels unhappy because I see it everyday and I see my own step-daughter thriving when she's here with us. We are setting an example of what a happy home life should be for her that she would not have seen otherwise. I'm proud of you Winds!

Honestly, I didn't divorce for my kid. I fought for custody, for him, but I divorced because I refuse to tolerate betrayal.

Still sounds like BS to me. All of it. I have never known any gunsmith who has been forbidden to take pictures of their guns by an insurance company (and how the Hell is a gunsmith supposed to get any customers if they can't show pics of their rifles to potential customers???? No customers, no income, insurance company loses client. Three words. Ain't. Gonna. Happen.), and at first you were saying it is illegal, which means against the law (any of you custom gunsmiths out there want to correct me, please do!). Next thing you will say is that you "made a mistake" in saying it was illegal. That's BS. I know what the law is, and I don't make "mistakes" about what my insurance "will allow" and what the law says and as far as insurance is. Which one is it? And again, what the Hell is a "class two sniper quality" rifle? That sounds very specific. Well, specifically bullspit. Again, I could be wrong and I ask any gunsmith here to chime in and correct me if I am, but the whole deal smells like BS. Hell, if I had any guns that were so damned scary and all that my insurance company would not allow me to take pictures of it and post them on the internet if I wanted to, I would not be spouting off about the damn thing in every other thread on this forum, let alone on FB.

Hear hear! All of the people who can view threads in the Bunker are known to the Mods. If your legendary Warbird is displayed there for a day, or even a couple of hours, and taken down and then this unicorn of a rifle ends up stolen, I'm sure that the Mods would be quite eager to help the BATFE find the culprits. Thieves and liars. Can't stand 'em.

Again, if there is another custom FFL/gunsmith who cares to comment here, or PM me if you don't care to do so on the open forum, I will apologize profusely.

He makes custom brass as a hobby? Wow. That's impressive. Takes a lot of specialized equipment I imagine. Must be expensive. Not many people out there can afford to have a hobby like that. I'm not sure I would really trust custom brass for such a high-pressure round as the incredible 7.82 Warbird out of a hobby-shop.

My random thought for the day: Oklahoma may not be paradise, but it's a helluva lot better than New Yuck.

I think at this point, Commiefornia is a lot better than New York. At least for now...

I believe you're incredibly right on both counts. I've been to Oklahoma, once. Didn't have a bad experience like I did in Texas, but there just wasn't much to see where I went. My stepdad said that there are actually some sights, and some impressive natural beauty in some areas... But, where he was living, which is the only place I've been there, it was flat land, irrigation ditch... flat land... irrigation ditch... flat land... irrigation ditch... flat land... you get the picture. They weren't even growing anything, and it was right in the middle of the growing season...
