I have none of those movie channels. Even when we get a free few days of one of the channels, I rarely see anything listed that I wanna check out.

I could go rent a lot of movies from the red box machine and still be way ahead of what those channels cost per month

$300? Wow. I switched to Direct TV for a 2 year contract - I have about 7 months left on that contract. But, I always switch back and forth between Dish and Direct.

This is my 2nd year of my Direct TV contract, I don't save much this year as I did on the very first year (per month). But over the two years time period, I will have saved over $700 from my previous $106 per month I paid with Dish Network.

My DSL and phone bill is like $68 per month.

I've tried streaming tv before - and it really sucks. I could not put up with that full time.

I also get the NHL tv package. That's like $160, but I pay it off over 4 months. While I can leave Direct tv at the end of this year - I'll be stuck because of the NHL package for next season. So, it'll be one more year before I can switch.

BUt, bouncing back and forth saves $. And recently, DIsh was giving away a free Ipad. I previously got a free portable DVD player from Dish years back

That's a heck of a mag!!

How many rounds is that?

That is a 30 round magazine.

I have one factory 20 round. That's about as big as I want. 30 rounds are just too heavy, IMHO. But, some people like them. And, many use them for the CX4 carbine. That's where I have my 20 round magazine at now.

I bought 4 gas cans and keep them empty in the garage, after that experience with the Houston residents. That would be enough for me to get back and forth to work for a week.

That was the problem - all the Houston people came and filled up, and filled up tons of gas cans. So, I have them as a "just in case" type of deal for next time.

I live in Waco so no need.

I ignored them for a decade myself. Grew up in Louisiana, and have been thru one that hit my hometown directly in the 1990s. But, when I moved here, I figured I was inland far enough - didn't even pay attention to the news about them...

Then that one that was gonna come straight to us a few years back hit east Texas at the last minute instead. I forget what city it was that got plastered. Jasper, or some other town. But, they were about as far inland as I am. After that, I pay attention.

Also - when Houston got hit last time, we still had major problems. Every gas station around here was sold out, and all supplies were gone. All groceries, etc... All the Houston residents kept coming to Bryan/College Station every day for 2-3 weeks and bought up EVERYTHING. People here couldn't get gas for themselves barely.

No one else has an opinion on this?

I am on the tail end of almost 3 months of back problems. So, I can certainly sympathize with ya! Hope ya feel better soon

I think Evans is signed onto at least two more movies. Another Avengers and a third Captain America. If memory serves.

That is what I have heard. I saw an interview where he claimed that its so much work to get in that shape, and do those fight scenes over and over all day long, for days.... He claims he wants to work behind the camera after the part is over with.

33
Lots of action. My wife wanted my six year old to go see it. I told her that I need to see it first. We let him see Avengers (after I saw it), but Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 were not really appropriate for him to see IMHO, so I have not let him see those.

With all the people getting shot and whatnot, I am not going to let him see this until he gets older.

But, it was an awesome movie.

Well, as I started before - once you get that level of 1911, it is hard to go down. I have looked at many, many sub $1k 1911s. Most of them have horrible triggers - or the trigger just rattles, among other issues.
Other issues?…like what?

Other parts not fit together as well. Either too loose or too tight. Detail to work might not be as good in different places on the gun.
