    The best kind of lights.

    An "Orange And Purple Wedding" is also a thing, apparently. The fill-in feature on Google Images' searchbar tells me so.

    Re: Post a Random Pic Thread

    Held one of these the other day! I helped my friends neighbor with bringing a stationary bike into his house. He needed help since its way to heavy and his house is on a hill with a ton of steps. So he said if i helped him i could look at his rifle and his military uniform. He was a Vietnam vet 1st Air Cav and he got this off of a dead NVA soldier. I think its a type 53 i can't recall what he had said.

    He must have been there early on, cause the NVA were armed with AK-47s by 1968. Maybe the NVA troop was some support type who got left behind in the fighting. In 1968 ASA troops at headquarters units still had M-14 rifles while the rest of the army were equipped with M-16s. I remember when I came down to headquarters from our detachment at the 1st Air Cav I had a M-16 and my new room mates were sort of jealous cause I had a "real" soldiers weapon!

    Yeah, that is a relic from the VERY early days. I was there in '68 and never saw or captured one of those. All AK's.

    Since my boots are made of Cadillac parts, I now have a matching engine made from boot parts.

    oh hai! That's a Mosin Nagant M44. It's essentially a full sized 91/30 with a shortened barrel and an integrated bayonet. I have a number of these Russian bolt actions. Horrible quality (but still straight shooters), uncomfortable, but hell of a lot of fun at screaming bargains (you can get these high power 30 Cal rifles for cheaper than bb guns or even a tank of gas if you shop right). They're totally worthless - which makes them great! Eventually they were followed by the ever popular semi-auto SKS which was refined to become the previously mentioned AK47.

    Neither mad nor hating. Just saying.


    In an alternate reality though, I probably DO have a dollar for every time and I bet the first thing I bought was a new CTS-V for every forum member.
