My neighbor knows I like the Marlin 22 s, he bought some sheet metal equipment and the guy handed him the 1968 Glenfield 75. I had to put the stock back together, amuater repair but it is together again and accurate. I showed him the 75, he says he has this Remington model 12 I can have, he said he could never hit anything with it. I gave the barrel a good scrubbing and staightened the rear sight, it shoots accurate enough for me. 1926 born on date

Nice neighbor. That beats the dude giving me a revolver for getting his Harley up and running again.


Now discuss your stock repair in depth and write it as an article for Kirk...

I thought you told us Kirk was out of the article business - the Evil Overlords had defunded the Kirk or taken away his superpowers or something

They have. BUT if you notice when you go to create a new post, you have the option to create it as a long form article or a regular discussion. Kirk and I have discussed creating a central area to gather the articles so once you write it and post it, we'll either move it to the article section or have you create it in the article area. We can no longer promote discussions to articles so we need you all, as the authors, to create the articles for us to organize. If we feel something you've written is article worthy we may ask you to copy and paste it in to a new long-form article post for us, so you still get credit for it.

Basically we can no longer promote, publish, or control the creation of articles at all. The only things we can do is ask you to repost it as an article and help you with the editing process, or steal it and repost it as an article under our names and you don't get credit.

Premium memberships automatically come for free as long as you keep writing articles. Otherwise we have to beg the evil Overlords to do everything for us. I've been stripped of even more power than during the last software change over, and Kirk lost his baby.

And during the run up to the change over, the Evil Overlords were all like, "I love you baby, and I'll still respect you in the morning." And they've changed our Evil Overlord Liaison, what twice now I think? And each one has been pretty much the same. "Sure, we can look at these things that you're asking for. They all sound easy/reasonable/something we want to do." Then they ghost.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

And don't forget the off site access to the developers and ability to beta test changes with weekly patches, software updates, and a monthly "newsletter" that has yet to be seen.

We didn't even get the sugar pill. Yeah, they promised us the good shiz and then we didn't even get an empty bottle. Just a swift kick in the rear by taking away features and capabilities which we had.
