we named him 'blue' coz there's a blue pentel mark on his nose when my friend gave him to me. :D

would be great if you have digicam and you post here. :)

so i guess no one here uses cd-writer as part of their profession?

Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night to crunching sounds, turning on the light, and seeing a decapaited guinea pig next to you pillow :o
Yuck!

Didn't say it to be mean; just stating a fact. And I made a mistake; they were hamsters, not guinea pigs..

And thinking about it for a sec:
guinea pigs=cat food, cats=dog food :)

You DONT want to know what some of my friends have done to cats...
Me, I don't mind cats TOO much...as long as they're cute :)

My appoligies to the animal lovers here...

Cool pic!!
About how I feel about Glock right now, too!
And remember, they weren't g.p's, they were hamsters...may bad...
I like the little fur balls...as long as they don't bite... :D

Sorry if anyone got offended by that; the pic just reminded me of my roommates mis-adventures with hamsters. The last three he had died (no, no cats involved). And the four before them by the cats. He's since given up on the hamsters. Me, I would'da ditched the stupid cat...give me a nice, big rott anyday...

sad about the hamsters too. :oops:

i don't think cats will eat/kill guinea pigs.
when i lived in a house with a graden and a lawn, i'd take them out to the lawn, they liked to eat the grass.
the neighbourhood cats would sometimes come close and stare (before i chased them away), but they never actually tried to touch them or harm them. i think a guinea pig is a bit too big for a cat to handle.
not that i would put it past them to try...

a hamster, on the other hand, is just up a cat's alley....


nice pic, cfitz!

sorry, jtan, it appears that your thread has been hijacked, thanks to me...

Yeah, I liked the one little furball...It'd just sit in your hand and let you hold it forever. It'd even sit on your shoulder, for a while...

Sorry glock20, I lifted the original from jtan's avatar, so that limited the resolution. I already magnified the photo, and further magnification without any additional real resolution will just result in larger blobs. :(

What is your new avatar?

Oh well...still, neat pic!

The new avatar is the Ruger logo. Glock doing some, um, "not good" things right now with costumer service, plus I just got a Ruger, and it's better than any Glock I've had. Now if I could change the sign-in name too...

I always admired the Ruger Mini-14. Do they still sell that?

Do you have the Ruger credit-card?

Image

It matches your new avatar! :)

What kind of shooting do you do? I've never owned a gun, but as a child I enjoyed plinking with my father and his antique .22 rifle and single-shot .22 target pistol. After I got older and did some investigating I decided we were lucky the rifle never blew up in our faces. A .22 long rimfire isn't exactly a hot round, but I found that rifle listed for sale in one of the antique (~1905) Sears catalog reproductions. I imagine it wasn't designed for modern smokeless loads...

I need one of those, preferably with no limit :)

Mostly I shoot handguns; I perfer the big bores. I have a .50AE Desert Eagle, a Ruger .454 Casull, and a Freedom Arms .475 Linebaugh. Plus I have a Glock .40 and 10mm; which I won't use until Glock gets their story straight on the recall thing; and my newest is a Ruger 9mm...

Me and a buddy once took an old 386 out to a field and burned about 100 rounds of .357 SIG ammo destorying it...quite fun! Seeing that other thread about the guy BBQ'ing a modem reminded me of it...
