Re: I feel his pain

The reason I suggested the water is, a fellow I know had the same thing happen, but it was a large black and white rat. He finally got it with the water, but it took 3 days.

Re: I feel his pain

I would think it may be getting thirsty by now. Try a little bit of water in a jar lid.

Re: TX200 trigger parts

That'll be TX380A. At least that's what one of my old manuals has listed for the trigger chassis.

Re: TX200 mk2 silencer removal

I sometimes take the muzzle part and the detent holder and wrap them in a good few layers of tape. I can then use an adjustable wrench, across the two, to unscrew the thing.

Re: TX200 mk2 silencer removal

It has some glue holding it as well as the grub screw. A little heat is needed to break the bond. Make sure that the barrel isn't turning as well. If it moves, it needs to be removed and re-glued.

Can't watch it mate,can't understand the need too grunt or scream every time they hit the little yellow round thing
I'd watch tennis, if you tied me down and pinned my eye lids open. I would then just hold my breath until I passed out. :lol:

Re: burmese python

About 10 years ago there was an albino python that killed an infant. Got out of it's cage in the night and found the crib. This was a 12 ft. snake. Happened in a town about 40 miles from me.
