Truely, a smaller (much!) avatar would, in fact, be desirable in this case.

Hey, VN! We can use your considered judgement to help out on settling an opinion split down here in the Dungeon. Many down here believe the view-blocking Avatar issue should be promoted to SUMMARY Plenipotentiary Tribunal status, while many believe it is properly rated at the current SPECIAL status. We have for some time admired your double-talk talent, and ask your advice on this issue. How would you call this question?

Definately moved to summary. This issue, in this application, is far, far,far too special, to be relegated into the special catagory.
Special will have to be reserved for such mundane items as finding a .45ACP or (perish the thought) a .40 short & weak brass in the dungeon !

VN
Special is special. Special will have to stay special because special, is... well... special, so, finding .45 acp or whatever brass can't be "special".

"Short & weak, mundane tasks" or SWM tasks are just that.

Way Special Applications... ahhhh... now those are special!

Actually, Tazz, finding 45acp brass IS special! The enormous diameter (compared to the otherwise exalted 10mm) enables the Dungeon Crew to use once-fired 45 brass to fashion pipelines from the 10-Ring oil wells to the offshore tankers at ENORMOUS savings compared to using purpose-built (and therefore expensive) oil-field pipeline. Such advantages, even with the old slow 45acp, should not be overlooked.

Methinks I detect JEALOUSY in VN's repartee ... The plentiful supply of 45 brass at cheap prices for reloading must be the envy of the 10mm types!

A riddle:

Question: How was the Grand Canyon formed?

Answer: Someone dropped a thousand once-fired 10mm casings at a 10-Ring match.

IMPORTANT 10-RING ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Listen up, you 10-Ring cretins! (As usual, please pardon my redundancy.) You need to be protected from what is about to occur!

Clearly, in a radical break from tradition, VN350 (an exception to the "normal" 10-Ring inhabitant) and I are about to engage in a truly scholarly and dignified discourse about economics and supply/demand logistics as they pertain to the 10mm way of life. This classy erudite material on this thread may drive a significant portion of the Penthouse crowd into (greater than usual) incoherence. We realize that the current focus of the 10-Ringers on partying, finding reasonably priced 10mm ammo, more partying, judging the Bikini contest, adjudicating G29's contest photo portfolio, even more partying, nostalgia/envy of G33 in his time of administrative punishment at the hands of G29 ... (Damn, he's one lucky bastard!) ... and the usual 10-Ring Resort debauchery MAY leave the 10-Ringers vulnerable to sensory awareness shock when confronted by sophisticated presentations of scholarly subjects such as this one

Therefore, I will present my thesis to VN350 in a manner that will protect the neurotic 10-Ring psyche. (Again, pardon my redundancy). When you 10-Ringers see line of asterisks in this post, please skip down to the NEXT line of asterisks; this will protect your psychotic mentalities from possible serious shock.

**********************

Okay. VN, your observation about the cost of 10mm brass rising in proportion to its worth/desirablity raises a subtle, yet important philosophical inconsistency in a Capitalist paradigm of rational thought. If 10mm brass IS so profitable, then it should be attracting additional suppliers into the 10mm arena, with the net effect of actually REDUCING the cost of such brass to the dedicated 10mm following. Yet such an event seems NOT to be occurring. What are your thoughts on this seeming inconsistency?

***********************

The mass of 10-Ringers may now resume contemplation of this thread. Try not to spill your beers on the keyboards.

Ah, dear Rabbi,
You misconstrue profitable for valuable. A $20.00 gold Double Eagle is very, very valuable, yet to resume production would, in fact, LOWER it's value. A vast portion of it's value comes not from the gold itself, but from it's rarity. Thus is the value of 10MM brass; like a Stradavarius, it's scarcity makes it all the more desirable.

As far as manufactuers are concerened, as soon as they have produced enough .45 brass to fulfill the needs of the still to be finalised oil pipeline to get oil from the rich region of Godknowswhereistan, proper attention can be given to decreasing the scarcity of 10MM brass.


u.a.;g ;c ;g

Ooops, sorry...
We melted down all our old 10mm brass to pay for the new condos.
Had no idea that would tilt the market place.;Q

G29! I am shocked! You MELTED DOWN 10mm brass! This is horrible! This is a CRIME! You must be PUNISHED for this action!

Tell you what, we'll let you plea bargain it down. If you publish a couple more photos from your bikini portfolio on this thread, we'll call it even. Let us know your decision.

Thanks G29,
Now I'm gonna haffta keep the stuff in a vault between matches !!!
Just what I needed, armed guards for my ammo ! More expense, more overhead; I need an increase in my cut of the embezzled funds, retroactive from the time that G29 melted the brass...

This also means that the guards will need guards for THEIR 10MM ammo....leading to more guards, MORE expense.....

See what you started here.....

Ahhhh ... VN, if you were REALLY on the ball, you would already know the Dungeon crowd can save you that hassle. If you check your copy of the Joint Dungeon/Penthouse Organizational Responsibility Protocols, you would find that, at the June 31 meeting, an amendment passed which assigned security responsibility for 10-Ring member ammo to, of all people, the DUNGEON CREW! I know it sounds weird, but the 45-shooting Dungeon types are the ONLY people in the facility who can be trusted with this job. Why? We don't shoot 10mm! (Well, unless we are specifically invited.) This security service is provided as part of our standard 39% cut of the take.

Relax, man! You're covered.

Thank you Rabbi,
I obviously overlooked the fine print. Or the finer print. Was this someplace in the sub-section dealing with the proper temperature & procedures for the decanting of fruit and/or cereal based libations?
Or was it hidden in the references to proper timing of the dispensing of the afforementioned libations ?
Either way, this is better than Blue Cross/ Blue Shield.

Actually, VN, Tazz chose to print that info (for some unfathomable reason) on the same page as the official 10-Ring Sobriety Survey. That, no doubt, would explain why you missed it.

Dearest Rabbity,

I thought your offer was most kind; your people should get with my people to negotiate.;*


Dear uncle,

Not to worry; we have a lot of nickle 10mm left; only the ugly brass was melted.;f
