That doesn't work in IE, at least in my version. A lot of hosting services don't allow pics to be pulled in from other websites- they do this to save bandwidth. They show up for bricklayer because he already has them in his browser's cache. To the rest of us, it's just 4 red x's.

That thing is probably packed to the hilt with Jawas. Keep your androids inside and beware of the Sand People. May the Force be with you. No Slack!

MatthewDaugherty: Look at those blast points -- too accurate for sandpeople. Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise.

It was made to look like it was the Sandpeople. But the Sandpeople always travel in single file to hide their numbers. No Slack!

Very Cool! At first I thought they were shooting another Chevy commercial in your back yard... then I realized you're getting your own space shuttle, Right? M.

Is it full of Jawa's. I lost my Android several years back and I bet it inside that thing. Benjamin

...so, have you shot at it yet? Range results?

This is why .50 bmg rifles can't be outlawed - if anyone ever goes nuts in one of these, you'll need a .50 to stop them! I've seen stuff like that on the history channel. Must be awesome in person.
Link Posted: 10/5/2001 8:59:54 AM EDT
schnacke, you'd try to stop that w/ a 50 BMG? I wouldn't even feel comfortable with artillery.z

Roflmao.... you talkin about my super custom, tack drivin, sub moa surplus russian m44? They have this thing lit up day and night. There is a county airport about 6 miles away from it so they have to keep it lit up. You should see it at night, looks like christmas. depending on were you are(of course) it can be seen for miles. -bricklayer

Good April Fools joke... When your neighbor isn't home, use this thing to pick up his house and hide it somewhere or spin it around 180 degrees and put it back on the foundation.

Bricklayer. Are you in Southeastern Ohio? It sounds like your near St. Clairsville. I once filmed Big Muskie do it's thing for a client. My F-250 looked like an ant next to the thing. It was funny, I film right in the middle of a flat field that had been bored and primed with nitrate/diesel to blast 15 minutes after I left. Now talk about a mine field!
