  1. Was 20/15 for a few years and settled at 20/20. My nearsightness was in the perfect range for good results with lasik and at 42 my prescription hadn’t changed in many years. My ophthalmologist says I’m one of the few that had such good results ove a long period.
  2. Had laser eye surgery in 2000 - best 4 grand I ever spent. I still have 20/20 vision 21 years later.
  3. Good Luck Steve and enjoy! Not far behind you. Charlie
  4. Whenever I picture the John Clark character from Clancy's books I think of William Defoe who played Clark in the book Clear and Present Danger. Thanks for the recommendation on "The Expanse" just finished book 8 which I think is the last one and really enjoyed it. The Amazon/SciFi series is pretty awesome too.
  5. Had one when they first came out and eventually trashed it. Between the 3 daughters with long hair and the long cat hair and long dog hair I’d spend forever cutting all that hair out of the gears and shafts etc. just to make it work.
  6. In San Antonio this weekend and the gumbo here was delicious.
  7. Wow I saw the ad in the buy or sell forum on the fishing site and thought the same thing “ this would be a great place to put a personal range”. If you go with it good luck.
  8. I thought gold was taxed as general income. In which case you may wish it was at capital gains 15%.
  9. If you do find that magic pill could you post it up here. Asking for a friend
  10. Won't the illegals be flocking there in January to get their licenses?
  11. I have 2 trips coming up that are booked on United Flights. I'm not worried about the virus, I'm worried about getting quarantined.
  12. Yahoo. New revolver has been sitting there for waiting for 6 weeks waiting to come home.
  13. I’m also in Clark and called Monday to find out where my permits were. I was told the same thing. They’re out of them and the State Police are out of them as well. They blame it on the governors office.
  14. No matter how much you save for college it won't be enough.
  15. My youngest two (twins) are graduating now. One today from Stevens and the other next week from the Air Force Academy. Their older sister graduated from Dartmouth in 2016. I saved heavily for them since I knew that being a business owner I was screwed because that big asset would weigh heavily when college time came. I think I started with the 529's around 2003 and had a pretty good amount saved but it would not have been enough without my one getting in the Academy. The money you put in is post taxes but any growth it makes while in the 529 is tax exempt as long as the money is used for approved college expenses. We were in Franklin NJ funds but there were probably other better choices. I went with what my financial service provider offered. If I remember right you can invest in any state's funds and use them towards any college. You can even switch the funds from one child to another (Air Force was free so that money went to Stevens Institute which ironically was more expensive than Dartmouth). Certain states had lower expenses and special deals for in state tuition - Nj was not one of them. Good luck with the college savings, it will be worth it in the long run.
  16. I have it and the big wait for me was making the appointment for my wife and I to go to terminal B for the face to face. After that it was only 1 week. Pre-check is great as is bypassing the long long line at customs coming back in to the US.
  17. One of my Rugers went back for repair and has to be replaced so I need a permit. It may have cost an extra 15 bucks but it was real easy and I didn't have to go to police station. Took 10 minutes to fill out and my references had their emails within 90 minutes. We'll see how long the permits take, Clark used to be about a month.
  18. Of course it doesn't. My FID has my home address and my office os the shipping address as is the credit card. The quote at the bottom of my original post was there reply. Been buying ammo for years and some vendors want the FPID and some don't bit no one has ever refused to ship to my office.
