Assuming Gums is on the road and may only be checking the board here as he travels...
Check your email Gums. The "product" will be available for a meet at the "country store" (Starky's) on Friday.

It has this nifty thing called a cap on top. Black in color, apparently made out of some sort of phenolic resin, cylindrical in shape, with what appears to be helical ridges on the inside.

Of course, duct ta... errr... 100mph ta... errr... Mach 1 tape could also be used. :devil:
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, add dollop of F-117 & gob of F-22, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well, then bake. Whaddya get? An F-35.

GASP!

May have created a cult here, LOL.

Will reply on the private email Blind and Steve have.

Packing and laughing.

@geo........ 100 proof isn’t the deal. And what kinda allergy to alcohol exists? The stuff is a liqueur and not a straight or even blended whiskey (pardon me, you Cannucks, as I like your blends, Canadian Mist being tops for light cocktails, then Crown Royal for serious stuff), If all else fails, try YukonJack.

Out!

I'm alcohol intolerant, gives me massive migraines, flushed skin and raises my body temperature a decent amount, all from ingesting a small amount of alcohol (like 1 beer). I usually end up passing out from the migraines, so i usually don't drink it :D My parents joke I am allergic to fun, Alcohol, something added to most cigarettes, marijuana gives me hives and makes me vomit, haven't tried anything else out of fear of death lol.

Moved this here from the other A10 thread, still a good candidate for the "Basement Dweller" thread.

Well I did try posting it in the basement dweller thread, but moderation doesn't smile on people immediately submitting an article as their first post.

If I really wanted to rig the test against the A-10, I'd ring the targets with Pantsirs in "functions as advertised" mode, but what do I know.
