parker 51 for sale
If you want a Parker “51” (and good on you if you do, for it is a fine and excellent pen), you have several options. You can buy a “51” from one of the respected pen restorers/nibmeisters like Richard Binder, troll the “For Sale” section at the Fountain Pen Network (yes, there really is a forum for every special interest under the sun), or roll your dice on eBay. If you go the fleaBay route, look for an Aerometric “51” (the newer models with the squeeze-bladder filler) instead of the older Vacumatic model (the older models with the little plunger under a blind cap at the back of the pen.) You have a better chance of scoring a functional Aero off the ‘bay, since their “Pli-Glass” sacs are incredibly durable. The Vacs have rubber diaphragms that are less durable, and many of the Vacs you find in the wild will need restoration after 50+ years.
canned haggis pictures
There’s one place in the U.S. that sells canned haggis, and that’s Caledonian Kitchen. They also have pictures of their product, so head on over for some Haggis porn. (Oh, God…I wonder what kind of spam I’ll attract with that term.)
piccadilly primo medium 288 pages price
Our local Borders sells the small, medium, and large Primos for $5.99, $6.99, and $7.99, respectively. I have a few, but I think I prefer the black Piccadillys with the oilcloth cover. The paper in the Primos is better, but my local Borders only stocks the lined variety, and I’ve come to prefer unlined paper.
use alphasmart as computer keyboard
Just plug in your Alphie via USB, and the PC/Mac will see it as a standard USB keyboard. The screen of your Alphasmart will read “Emulating PC Keyboard.” Works just fine, and you can still shuttle files on or off the Alphie any time you want…just fire up the Alphasmart Manager software.
spike strips for my lawn
Do you have a problem in your neighborhood with kids racing their ride-on lawnmowers across people’s yards at high speed?
deter rodents raccoon
Raccoons can’t be deterred easily, because they seem to be rather daft. I mean, we had one wander into a place that has the scent of death (in dachshund form) all over it, and the little bandit was undeterred. He was the raccoon version of the dumb little college kid who goes off by himself in a dark and spooky house to “check out that weird noise.” His fate was predictable.
iwb holster from akj concealco
I have one of those for my Steyr, and I like it a lot. It’s well-made, comfortable, and durable. For less than $50 shipped, it was quite the bargain.
writing on walls performance art
Ooooh…then my kids are performance artists. Maybe I should remove the entire mural-bearing drywall section in the playroom and take it to a gallery, to sell on consignment and pad their college fund.
top plausible porn movies
They’re all plausible, aren’t they? I mean, the world is positively littered with silicone-enhanced peroxide blondes who just get uncontrollably horny at the sight of a plumber’s crack, right?
44 mag lever gun utility
If you don’t try to pull off 300-yard shots, a .44 Magnum lever gun has as much utility as one chambered in .30-30 or .35 Remington. They’re both in the same ballpark in terms of muzzle energy, but the .44 launches a heavier bullet with higher sectional density. If you keep it under a hundred yards, it’s six of one, half a dozen of the other. (For plinking and home defense, I’d say that the .44 has more utility than the .30-30, because it holds more rounds.)
357 sig or 40 sw caliber whats better
One shoots slightly smaller bullets a bit faster, the other shoots heavier bullets of slightly larger diameter. Both have roughly the same muzzle energy in the top loads. The .40 is a bit cheaper, and a lot more available, since 175% of police departments these days issue pistols in .40S&W.
is spray cheese fake
It’s made of perfectly natural (read: carbon-based) polymer chains.
best defensive ammo for 44 mag s & w
Don’t load up your .44 Magnum with bear killers because you simply must have the most foot-pounds you can get out of your cannon. The heavy loads in .44 Magnum have lots of flash and recoil, make quick follow-up shots difficult, and tend to over-penetrate. (Ideally, you want the lead to stay confined to the Bad Guy, and not zip right through him, two sheetrock walls, a magazine rack, and three innocent bystanders.) Pick one of the “.44 Magnum Lite” loads with moderate bullet weights and velocities…or just load up with .44 Specials instead. (Their Silvertips in particular are a fine defensive choice.) Trivia: Dirty Harry loaded his .44 Magnum with Specials, too, by his own admission.
fountain pen parker sonnet
The Sonnet is Parker’s entry in the $100-ish fountain pen bracket. I know some people who absolutely love theirs, and others who can’t get theirs to write properly. It looks nice and fits my hand well, but for $100, I don’t like rolling the Quality Control dice. For the same cash, you can get a Pelikan M2xx-series pen, or a Lamy 2000, both of which are superb writing instruments.
