I have noticed something lately regarding items I leave in my cart on eBay for a day or two. I have been consistently receiving email from eBay that the say the seller sent “this private offer”. The price drop is normally 10 - 20%. So now if I don’t have to have something next day… I just let it simmer for a few days.
Maybe it’s always been like this?

I used to suffer from this ailment (G.A.S.), but I realized I had a problem and got help! My friends thought I was having a relapse when I got into firearms, but I was just “outfitting the tool box” with the necessary tools. (2 9mm. 2 22 pistols, 12 ga and 22, 223 Wilde & 308 rifles)
Drums & bicycle stuff were a different story - learned my lesson, but it took 14+ bikes and a lot of cymbals to learn what “practical” means.

Just “some” of what went to the studio back in April. Yes, I have a problem…

I no longer have that holster drawer. Bought one of those over-the-door shoe organizers. All my firearm holsters, mag holsters, belly and ankle bands. I have a walk-in closet so I can rig up while getting dressed.

Be sure to follow me and don’t miss my next hack… rearranging a sock drawer

They keep glasses like that in the “Old Folks Home”

I bought an M6 bayonet. The blade tip has been ground down.


Does this look like the correct profile? Looks like I should be able to put a point on it.


The end of the bayonet says Mx (M6) but the scabbard says M8A-1 is that a correct match?

Yes, that is a correct match.
