    I'm 6'1" and it works for me. If there are good trees nearby you can eschew the poles too. When you set up though, remember how the overlap of the two halves sit in relation to each other--you want...

    Sometimes if you order several items at once, then it might take longer for you to get your order. They might have items A, B, and C in stock but need to wait to receive D before they ship the whole...

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, just give you your first lesson: "Calvary" is a hill. "Cavalry" is a guy on a horse.

    Whereabouts in Colorado are you? I'm pretty certain that there are groups in...

    I agree that our "chain-of-command" has no real teeth. But even so, we can still bring things like this up. It might not help with the immediate problem, but possibly a raised awareness might...

    I'm thinking of something I learned in the modern Army: "The six Ps". Most of you know it.

    Several excellent points have been touched upon: the idea of "units" (no matter what you call them) that...

    Okay, so I'm a man and we all know that men are not wired to just listening, but trying to fix things. What can we do to fix this?

    Gentlemen.

    Thank you all for this discussion. While it doesn't help me to answer the original fella who asked the question, my personal arsenal of information is a little better stocked to give...

    Thanks Curt.

    So, to oversimplify: the barrel is formed into a roll, then turned on a lathe, and the hole was then bored out?

    Rifle Barrel Construction?

    This past weekend at Perryville I had a spectator ask me how CW rifle barrels were manufactured. He than asked a small follow-up (was it done this way or that) but I honestly can't remember the exact...

    Speaking for myself, I'd rather see a clean uniform than one that's been obviously and quickly, and poorly I might add "muddied up." This is where a guy reaches down and gets his hands muddy, then...

    Gents, this is a fine frock. A similarly sized version at some of the big online sutlers is nearly $275, and I guarantee that this coat is of a much better quality in both materials and workmanship.

    For sale: one Federal, junior officer’s frock coat.

    My uncle asked my wife to make him a frock. Which she did. The only problem was that there was a miscommunication about sizing and it turned out...

    I took a look at the Paderno (WalMart) pan--thank you. But I noticed that the shipping weight was 2.9 pounds. Does that include what appeared to be two pans, and probably the shipping box too? I'm...

    The Red Badge of Courage. The narrative is superb and Crane taps into the truth of human emotion without being shackled to facts. There's a reason it's still required reading in so many classrooms.

    My understanding on sugar is that coarse granulated sugar is more accurate.

    I also understand that long grain brown rice is closer to what they were issued.
