29 -- a superb firearm and amazing what you paid and what's it's worth now (probably 6-10x what you paid) --- beats 99% of all stocks.
I agree totally with your comments about the revolvers--- I still have trouble with the Glocks in 40 not cycling, Bersa reliability, some H&K issues and the list goes on ---- never once could say the same about any revolver.
With no definition of "gross negligence" in the underlying statute, a confusing, at best, legislative history, differing views relative to the act across the federal courts, and an earlier US Supreme Court that itself couldn't reach a decision on this regarding Exxon, you're telling me one federal judge's decision, predicated on a large subjective component and "state of mind" interpretations, isn't going to be appealed, looked at by other courts and ultimately taken up by the Supreme Court ?
The whole area is laden with ambiguity and the entire energy industry (along with an even larger number of US corporations) is deeply troubled by this -- 99.9% "side" with BP, want this little matter to be settled in a way that doesn't put the whole of industry at risk later.
Carly is a little long in the tooth (just like Hillary) although she doesn't have the same sleezy instincts ---- that little Benghazi "shredding session" Hillary attended one Saturday Morning with two senior State officials, a Dept of Commerce exec, others will be in the press very soon --- the Republicans are holding that one "in abeyance" for improved "blast effects" prior to the election...............
Was in Puerto Rico last year ---- crime is OUT OF CONTROL, half the country works for the government --- total mess. Cuba is far worse.
Do you know how many Israeli Jericho ICBMs are aimed at Iran today ??
(Enough to take every pebble of Iranian sand and produce the universe's largest glass factory)
Look for it to be in the $175 - $200 / barrel range post 2019-2020 after the hydraulic fracking industry capacity peak (and dramatic falloff thereafter)..................
I think the frackers have lost their minds running rigs in overtime to push out cheap oil --- shale is finite, exhibits dramatic decline rates and I'd keep it in the ground to collect higher prices later. They remind me of that silly hampster on the wheel in the cage..............
Sentiment: Strong Buy
In the meantime they'll have $40B in hard cash in the bank by the end of the year -- far exceeding (TWICE if not more) any of their peers (XOM, CVX, COP, RDS, etc)
Calculation: $34B there already plus $6B inflows from already scheduled, agreed to divestments..........
The $13.7B figure being tossed around in the press will be lowered to $10.5B-$11B to account for the US Govt's already announced multi-$B concessions, then BP goes after the "gross negligence" "ruling" (totally ambiguous meaning across ALL the courts relative to the Clean Water Act) and it's off to the races once the world comes to realize the final bill is actually only $3.5B (3.19M barrels x $1100/barrel fine) --- payable post 2020 if not later.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
These 44s have absolutely no recoil, decent stopping, and they're very accurate even in these short barrels
libertee, My normal carry is a stainless Charter Arms 44 Spec -- I love the S&W Mod 69 I own but the Charter Arms is half its weight (~19 ounces ) -- hardly even know you're carrying it.
You need to head VFR Direct in burners (IMMEDIATELY) to the nearest insane asylum
US is teamed with Iran right now --- State is backing down with the rhetoric and sanctions
Real chummy as we speak --- Liar Obama's Val Girl has got the stick
Great company, fine products
Why build em when you've already got em?? Kiloton "babies" , not quite the crowd pleaser variety yet
The Saudi "takedown" of hydraulic fracking may be a blessing in disguise --- delays the inevitable peak, but you can rest assured there's known decline curves thereafter and US production will do nothing but fall and fall while brent just keeps going skyward.
They're running rigs in overdrive giving away oil today --- stooopid strategy.
They produce a BOE (barrel of oil equivalent) for $3.25 in USD costs ---- thank you collapse of the ruble (they pay their costs in rubles)
Then it falls to $3.5B once the ambiguous, no current legal standard "gross negligence" "ruling" is overturned.
BP will end 2015 with $40B cash in the bank and they'll end up paying the $3.5B mentioned above sometime in the 2022-2023 timeframe ---- after the entire fracking industry has collapsed having hit their production capability in 2019-2020 --- the decline rates thereafter are EXTREME, RAPID, GUARANTEED and oil will be heading to the $200/barrel range
