Check it - Boys in Company C is out on DVD - although last time I checked it was not. Excellent Marine Boot Camp film that ends with the boys going to Viet Nam. I am pretty sure it was Ermey's first movie.....Rob

I read that and I think "Boogie woogie bugle boy in Company B."

I guess that makes me weird. And also makes anyone who understands what I'm talking about weird.

Hey Bren, nice seeing ya.

I went and picked up a Brownng Buckmark Camper like new. It was dropping the mag so I was able to pick it up for $100 plus two extra mags (4 all together) All it needed was the grip screw tighten up and good to go.

Have ya shot one? It's a pretty fair pistol.

Thanks, Bette - or is it the Andrews Sisters?

Shot a straight Buckmark... never the Camper... it shot better than I do. Is there much difference?

And at that price, if it goes "bang" you can't go wrong!

I'm not real familiar with the Buckmark models. I just figured it was money well spent. It is a nice little shooter though.

I'd be surprised if you enjoyed every one of those movies, but if you can find two or three you really enjoy, then I've done well.


I just added all of them to my queue! Well, except for "Five Graves to Cairo." Netflix didn't have that one. Shame, it looks very interesting! I'll look elsewhere for that one.


OY! I sure hope you find some that you enjoy. Five Graves To Cairo is worth doing a little digging for.

Not only do I understand what you're talking about, but my trio used to perform the song using The Andrews Sister's arrangement. Now THAT is REALLY weird.

Bren, missed you. Stay with us a bit and help us out with audio, guns and other good stuff.

Yup, Andrews Sisters. I don't think I've ever performed it, but my Mom used to perform it a lot.
