Sysop[edit]

Existence for several days and lack of vandalism has qualified you to become a member of the elite janitorial staff! Congratulations on sysoppry. Here's the guide, and feel free to ask about anything. Blue Talk 01:45, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Firearms enthusiast[edit]

Not many of us here, and I feel the cash strapped college student. ТyTalk. 19:39, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

yeah, I regret not getting a job earlier in high school. What do you shoot mostly?Klaus Vos (talk) 19:45, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
I have a 12 gauge punp action, a Remington .270 bolt-action, a crummy .22 revolver by H&R, and an ancient .32 S&W blackpowder revolver(The one in Fallout 3, actually). ТyTalk. 19:48, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Swiss K31, Mossy 500, CZ-82, Ruger 10/22, Mossy US 44(a). The US 44(a) was my great gramps, and he neglected it, let it sit in the garage all the time and never cleaned it. When he gave it to my grandpa (his son in-law), there wasn't even any bluing left. My grampa carved a new manlicher stock for it, fiberglass bedded it, reblued, cut a few inches off the barrel to remove the broken front sight, and put a little 4x scope on it. He used it for a while and gave it to my dad (his son in-law). My dad left in in a tube sock in the closet for years and never touched it. He gave it to me after letting it sit there for a decade. The coolest part was, when I took it to the range for the first time, it didn't even need to be sighted in. Any of your guns have cool stories?Klaus Vos (talk) 20:01, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
The H&R was my grandfather's. It is famous in family stories for inaccuracy, nobody has ever hit a target with it yet in almost 70 years, let alone when my grandfather was once shooting at a snake at point blank range and missed all 9 times. It was fobbed off on me because I wanted a revolver for my 18th birthday. The S&W has no bullets, and apparently exploded often enough with the black powder ones, modern powders... yeah, I'm not going to fire it anytime soon. ТyTalk. 20:05, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
What do you mean "exploded?" Did the catch not keep it closed? Because that may be a resolvable issue. Klaus Vos (talk) 20:10, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
The cartridge in question [1]. The pistol was made in 1888. ТyTalk. 20:15, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, that's not really worth buying ammo for. You could sell it and buy a nagant revolver for $100 and be able to shoot .32 S&W longs, or buy a .32 acp cylinder for it. Klaus Vos (talk) 20:19, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
I really should. The damn thing was also rusted shut when I acquired it.. Nobody remembers when the family got it, It's just always been one of those things in the mystery box in the attic. ТyTalk. 20:21, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Working and usefulness[edit]

This is the kind of progressive, forward thinking attitude I expect from my men! Good work. ТyTalk. 02:22, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Danke Klaus Vos (talk) 02:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Пожалуйста, you are now a sysop. Again. ТyTalk. 20:40, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Very nice. Thank you. Klaus Vos (talk) 20:46, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

May Day[edit]

You still intending to expand and pimp this article? If not I'll kill the current version as it's a bit arse. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 21:31, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I guess. I'll have to do some research first. It's a bit late to work on it yet tonight, but I can do some stuff this coming week. Klaus Vos (talk) 03:15, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
