I used to live in Hyattsville, on Naragansett Parkway - back in the 60's...

I'm wondering aloud as this 4th approaches . How long will we be allowed to own fire arms, wave an American Flag, or even go to a fireworks show?


Well, let's see... I keep a pistol and at least three spare mags on the end table, so that means the first 21 people that come to my door to take my guns is going to end up in a bloody heap on the front porch. I figure it'll take them long enough to clear the obstruction at the front door for me to get my rifle and another 12 spare mags (six 20's and six 30's). I figure 300 rounds of "we the people" will hold them off for a little while longer at least.

Ok John, just be sure to keep taking those happy pills! We don't want you getting upset! :lol:
Especially me as you must live near me! :o


I don't get upset. I simply redouble my resolve. :)

I thought I'd post a picture of why we're here, and the tools I use to defend why we're here:

All I need now is a flag that say "Can't Tread on Me".

In Topic: Decanted Paint Error

02 July 2011 - 01:48 AM

Hey Gang,

Once the paint has gassed out, you can put the lid back on, if you use low-tack tape it is easy. If you use lids with a cork gasket the gasses/solvent will not affect them, the foam-rubber ones will dissolve especially if "hot paint". I learned all this the hard way, easiest is just decant, wait until gassed out, stir a little bit as it sits, when bubbles stop gasses are gone, and shoot it rather than waiting to store the paint for longer periods of time.

John, once the paint is gassed out, most gaskets should work fine when you put the lid back on, you just need to get the propellants out of the jar first, that is why the tape with holes. Simple, easy, cheap low-tack is fine. Works great, I had bought a bunch of close-out spray cans before I bought my airbrush, so I have decanted a lot, just trial-and-error learning from my good...and bad experiences.

The foam gaskets have always melted on me - even with MM enamel that came from a jar (as opposed to being decanted). I simply don't use them any more (nor plastic lids). I have a dozen bottles, and they all now wear metal lids with cork gaskets. When I decant, I just put the lid on top of the jar without screwing it on. That allows the gas to escape, yet keeps particulate matter from entering the jar (the next time a wasp flies into the garage and lands in my paint as I'm decanting, I'll snap a picture of it. :)
