  1. I'm not a giant fan of the NRA, but _every_ political organization engages in similar behavior. This kind of thing happens on all sides of American politics. The problem is that enforcement is sporadic and politically motivated. You see 'red state' law enforcement cracking down on left wing organizations, and 'blue state' law enforcement cracking down on right wing organizations. All it does is widen our already massive political divides.
  2. Given that Biden's legislative agenda is basically hostage to a coal executive (Joe Manchin) from the largest coal producing state (West Virginia), that makes sense. If the democrats are openly anti-coal, they are going to lose their entire program by alienating the key swing voter in their caucus.
  3. Done. :) Cash is pretty much trash at this point. You have to use it for daily expenses, but it's a huge mistake to keep any more than necessary for everyday transactions.
  4. I wasn't aware the GOP thought they had a chance of winning the New Jersey race. In a state where there are a million (not an exaggeration) more registered democrats than republicans, that would be pretty unrealistic.
  5. The original archive is just below this forum: https://www.dropzone.com/forums/forum/61-archive/ I'm not sure what the plan is for the BJ.com posts to be archived. I can see if I can find out. I'd love to see them archived here in the same format, but with the number of subforums over there that may be challenging.
  6. I think this will be a positive change. I'm excited to get back in touch with DZ.com. :)
  7. There is a lot of discussion here that doesn't really apply to my (slider down BASE rig) case, but it's interesting to read it. Does anyone happen to have the actual dimensions handy (ID and OD, or even just ID)? Thanks! -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  8. Thanks for the photo. Something that needs to be tacked down won't work for me. I need to slide the bumpers up and down quite frequently. -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  9. Looking at the chart, they are number 5 links. I can buy tubing from McMaster, but I'm trying to narrow down the correct interior diameter so I'm not stuck ordering a range and then trying different ones until I find the right size to order more of. How hard is it to slide the white webbing ones on and off the links? Do you happen to have a photo? I'm not really familiar with them. I could probably just sew up some webbing covers. Maybe I'll give that a shot. -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  10. Can anyone point me at the correct size silicon tube to use for (reserve size) slider bumpers? I'm replacing the bumpers on about 40 BASE rigs, and I just want to buy a length of hose and cut it up. Does anyone have an internal/external diameter hose (or better yet a link to a supplier) that works? Thanks for any help. -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  11. A great man and a heck of a guy. I've still got Ken Oka pull up cords. He will be missed. -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  12. Holy necro thread. Did you just respond to a 9 year old post? I have large harness rings and small riser rings on most of my BASE rigs, but obviously a hard cutaway isn't much of an issue there. What kind of container did you buy and what brand of risers were on it? -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
  13. I'll call PD. Since they use F-111 to build the Ace and Blackjack canopies, hopefully they'll have some scraps that I can use to patch them. Thanks! -- Tom Aiello [email protected] SnakeRiverBASE.com
