    Well, not so much active since the lines are being slow-rolled at the moment, but I'm doing historical consulting for Ares Games on their Wings of Glory WWI/WWII and Sails of Glory Napoleonic naval miniatures lines, have been for quite a few years now. Last release we were working on to put...

    DEATHS ; Notable Passings; The Thread to Pay Last Respects

    Professor Williams was one of my big formative influences on politics and philosophy. Vaya con Dios, Doc...

    Show us your Guns!

    A "his and hers" pair with a couple stories behind them... a US M4 and a Canadian C8A3. M4: This one started because, with my aspirations of academia and belief in hands-on learning, I wanted to have a modern counterpoint to pair with a Garand for "Then vs. Now" lessons. Many of the parts are...

    Still under construction as a Weight & Balance Mockup (hence the "blank" lower with no components and the lack of upper components), but latest update: If the BT's will allow me to continue sharing my Development Engineering work, I'll try to slide up a couple more showing the "Discreet Carry"...

    Kirk, maybe I'll deal the whole crowd in after I've received Pro sign-off. Part of the rub is that the prototype is specially optimized to the unique needs of a left-handed, light/flash-sensitive operator... and the handguard that holds it all together I have literally the last one of its kind...

    "Too much" is when your hardware consumes more time and effort than the training to use it. :)

    Who're you kidding? You always need spares, malfunction-prone ones restricted to Range Training, prepositioned stashes... back in college when my now-ex had a stalker problem (we met because I was hired to provide Executive Protection services; to most Loungers who were here when I joined so...

    Nice! The girlfriend's a Canuck and wants to learn to shoot, so I'm thinking about building her a C7 or C8 to borrow when visiting. Mind if I pick your brain on hardware sometime? :) (Personal opinion: every free citizen should know how to operate their country's standard-issue basic service rifle.)

    Nothing "vintage"--a local LEO and I have been working on developing a briefcase-size Personal Defense variant of the AR15. Exciting project from a technical perspective, but half the crowd here would call for my expulsion on sight if I posted pics. Not that I'm around much anymore anyway to...

    What are you Writing?

    Sounds like the "Deadlands" role-playing game... you might give it a check-out.

    What are you Writing?

    Longtime no *be*, Melissa... I drifted away a few years back after it seemed like everybody who'd made the Lounge so interesting and sometimes even fun was going or gone, and now having drifted by idly wondering what was up with the old haunt only to find that Powers is gone... well, it's not...

    What are you Writing?

    What am I writing? I just started a weekly feature on a major activism site--no link, because it's politics, though my column is kind of a melting-pot of whatever underreported stories catch my eye plus a lot of "Today in History" and commentary on various foods, beverages, books... a little...

    Name your favorite films based on true stories.

    The Great Raid. And who could forget the two big '70s military biopics, George C. Scott's Patton and Gregory Peck's MacArthur?

    Your Favorite Sandwiches?

    Right now, as far as chain-food goes I've been finding Jersey Mike's #13, the Original Italian, surprisingly good for fast-food. Meat's sliced fresh while you wait, but the pickles they use are worth commenting on in their own right, crisp, tart and just thick enough to give you a good...

    What Did You Drink Last Night?

    Don't let AtomicEraTom or my Hoosier relatives hear you say that... though I'll note there's a REASON I don't drink with the relatives while visiting. LOL

    What Are You Reading

    The most tolerable things about it were Jennifer Garner's, er, "assets" ;) and the fact that whichever side the character he plays is on Ving Rhames does the tough-guy role SOOO well.

    What was the last TV show you watched?

    Starting to get hooked on Castle... don't remember which season, but they did a very nice "noir tribute" episode. :)

    Your favorite movie quotes

    Don't get me wrong, I HATE Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction (and frankly a lot of the CSI episodes he directed are just Too. Freaking. Weird. for me), but this one was good enough to warrant adoption and use... If my answers frighten you then you should CEASE ASKING SCARY QUESTIONS!--Jules...
