Hell, we go out every day. I had my car in the shop for regular maintenance today and after taking it there, we went to Chick-Fil-A (drivethru) and picked up lunch. I've been going to the post office...

Another thing that will bite you is the '24/7' aspect of isolation, which is old hat to we retired couples but must be very alarming to couples who are experiencing it for the first time, and in the...

'Light grey' has not been my perception on all of the late RRs. They are Parkerized (Zinc Phosphate) but this can vary in shade. I know the early 1945 pistols tend to be dark with near-black parts -...

I agree that Anniston is typically 'ANAD'. I thought maybe that as late as it was done, 1983, which was also the year in which the M9 was adapted as the military pistol, perhaps things were a little...

I'm seeing a re-Parkerized pistol. Maybe I'm too picky about certain 'tells' - we'll see what others think. Whatever, its already higher than it should be even if it were really 'untouched'. One...
