Memories. Getting old 'inhales deeply' to say the least. Miss the days of the OMHW trips to play wherever. Medically an adventure anymore. 2 strokes no residual damage and the heart attack. Weigh in at 204lb and those who remember me I was 'heavy' Infantry. Full blown uncontroled diabetic so just a day by day, what else can go wrong.

Still have my original 68 Special on my 'I love me' wall. went into airsoft for awhile when paintball died out here. Still plink with my KWA K-4 GBB, cheaper than 5.56.

Some familiar names here, some not so much, looks like the old OMHW crew is long gone, but such is

Enjoy your life, the alternative is far worse.

I moved from western PA to SLC, UT in 2008, did a stint in the USMC and went back to Utah at the end of 2013, got a degree in Materials Science and Engineering, and currently work for the air force. Bought a house here spring 2019 and live with a girlfriend and a couple rowdy cattledog mixes. I still try to ski, mountain bike, shoot, and have fun with cars as much as I can.

I don't know when the last time I posted here was but I relocated to Phoenix AZ and have fallen completely in love with the west. I enjoy camping still and bought an 04 4runner for my adventures.


Sold my third gen 4Runner in 2011 and missed it up until I got a 100 series in 2015. Winter months we make it down to southern UT a bunch, but I think once it gets hot this summer we're gonna try to explore more of Idaho. Hit me up if you're coming up out of the desert.

Other than that, 18" of snow. As a Houstonian, this sucks. Shovelling sucks.


Snowblowers kick ass. My decent sized driveway with 5-6" of snow takes more than an hour to clear with two people by shovel or under ten minutes with just my snowblower.

Gosh reading through this is a blast from the past. Started on this form when I would consider myself a little kid. Great seeing Old Soldier post. Such good memories meeting some of them at the 06 or 07 Michigan Monster game. Speaking of which I continue to go to that game so if your also planning on playing this year (2020) hit me up. 

basic summary of life:
Finished college
Whopped it up as a single due
Got married and bought a house
Finished grad school
Sold house
Divorced? TDB

Finally knuckled down and sent off an order form to the Civilian Marksmanship Program for a Service-Grade M1 Garand. Their Alabama office is closed until next week, but I figure that puts me towards the front of the line when they finally open their mail. Excited, but it can take months to finally receive your rifle the first time around.

Meanwhile, I have a butt-load of rifle parts coming to return my sporterized M98/48 back into a true Yugo-Capture 98k. It's an OG German receiver with OG German barrel, so it's an early "conversion" meaning they just put it in a new non-Nazi stock. After that, the only restorations I have left to complete are the M16 Berthier Carbine (stock and bbl bands) and finish up my buddy's No.4 Mk1 Enfield re-finish.

I've always wanted to shoot a Garand.

Om those yugos, did they remove the front sight hood? What's a good reference website on those? The reason I ask is my k98 doesn't have the front hood.

They did, but repros are available from Liberty Tree Collectors for a reasonable price. Just snapped the sight hood back on mine tonight.

A lot of k98s as missing their hoods. Either banged off in storage or import, or taken off by bubba. Captured Russian, Yugo, Czech, etc. usually removed it as well. http://mauser98k.internetdsl.pl/indexen.html has some info that is pretty complete.

https://www.ima-usa.com/pages/search-results?q=k98&page_num=2 also has hoods available.

Haha oh man, kids these days with their go-pro's don't know how easy their life is compared to trying to run those big hi8 cameras.

Cause i like to use my bike for Training in future, i started preparing it. 1st step is mod. the seat to have enough room for the socket(done), the Major Problem. 2nd round build a(i would explain it like an open ring) for fix the foot on the Pedal(german word for, the Thing where you put your boots on) but with the Option to get out of it by spred the leg sideways.

Hope you understand a bit of the plan, after builing it i go post pics for better understanding !

Here some seat pics:









After ive finished the final adjustment(after testing) i go seal the open wounds on the seat cause i dont wont to hurt my Pants(worst example: get of the bike after movement + edge of the seat = hole in a bad position).
I like Tippmann !!!
