OK, the stocks are not probably original. ;)

I never said they were original. Nonetheless, it was a cool gun when I bought it. I got a Roy Jinks Certificate at Baton Rouge in a S&WCA convention. Roy said it was shipped to 5-7-1969 to Bern's Wholesale sporting Goods in Denver, CO Pics:

Photobucket used to be the largest photo storage and sharing site on the internet. Some time 3 or 4 years ago they realized that more people were using it to store and share their images for free, compared to those that pay for their file storage service. So in their altogether internet wisdom they decided to shut down their photo sharing service to anybody not willing to pay for the storage. They also turned of all linkage from the non-paying members on everything they had stored on their system.
So, any photos that are missing here from Photobucket will have the missing link avatar pop-up. You will know because at the bottom of each of them will have the Photobucket logo onm the bottom of the photo. Their reasoning for that, is so the Photobucket members that were using their site for free will choose to buy into their service, so their photos would remain visible on sites such as this one.
Most of us here including me refused to pay for their service, and thus all of the blank avatars now.

Yep, they did it to me too; I keep getting emails about how I am over the "free storage limit" and how I need to pay. Pretty lousy they won't let you just retrieve your photos and close your account. because of that I went to Imgur.

I pay photobucket.
Sometimes their site goes down. The pictures showed when I previewed the post before clicking post.

I guess this site has no photo hosting ability?

It does and it's much easier than the previous version of the forum.... all you need to do is click on the 4th icon (insert image) from the left in the editing toolbar, that's seen at the bottom when doing a post/reply. Clicking on the icon brings up a box that says "drop image (or click here)", clicking on that box enables you to select an image from your computer.

After the image is inserted into the post, if you click on it, 4 small blue squares will appear at the corners of the pic, you can adjust the size of the image by clicking on one of the boxes and dragging it to change the image size in the post.

Many Thanks Conrad,
I get it now. It takes a few minutes to show. It also seems to block photobucket and other hosting sites which is AOK with me.

Nice picture of your 911. (y)

For me it doesn't take long at all, once I select the pic on my computer, it uploads immediately. Difference in internet speed/providers? I'm on xfinity (Comcast).

Me too, but speeds are different in different places.
