Put down the PC
Guess which section has the line to wait for an available spot? It’s not the book, or DVD section. GARY
My point exactly !

Using a PC is great, I use mine everyday. I did find that even when I google a subject I end up drifting off of topic and looking up other things.

With a "real" book that does not happen if the reader is truly interested in the subject of the book thats picked out. Page after page is read and the reader yearns for the next chapter in anticipation.
At least thats how I feel when reading something I like or am interested in.

I see that with our posted conversation the difference in our generation and age. Just a sign of the times I guess.
:mrgreen:

It's ashamed as there are so many books out there with great info that are not available on the internet.

You are supposed to be able to do so with the adjustable gas plugs.
Slow burning powder is the problem .
Bending op rods can be result,but I have never used hunting ammo in M1.
On one occasion M1A and op rod came out of rail but was not bent.
Never tried that again.
