    Anyone else nostalgic looking over the Foonblotz catalog?

    Favourite answer:

    I guess my biggest regret is that I didn't actually write down and collate all the Foonblotz answers -- they would have made their own little pamphlet of hilarity.

    Some things came from the top of my head, others came from...uh...the martini fairy...and still others came from taking an aspect of a particularly ridiculous question and running with it.

    I, too, am going to miss those moments where the trolls got trolled by the true experts in this section.

    I wish you all the best and godspeed.

    And remember, there's like a dozen other platforms which ripped off Yahoo Answers, completely.

    I remember googling "Foonblotz" and some other "answers" system pulled up with my answers, word for word, and it wasn't YA.

    I'm suspecting that's at least one reason why YA is shutting down -- tired of giving free exposure and publicity to douchebag copycats who lack anything but cut-and-paste skills.

    Anyway, time to make the donuts.

    And if you don't get that reference, enjoy the fact that you're young.  

    Peace out.

    Does anyone still believe Kyle Rittenhouse is guilty after watching the full video compilation?

    It clearly shows he was not the one to start the conflict. The fact he traveled doesn't make a difference. If you travel out of state with a gun to defend yourself with, and someone attacks you for no reason. They are at fault, and if you run away, and they chase you, legally speaking you are allowed to defend yourself. 

    how do people think he is guilty?

    Hunting section, what are your plans for farewell?

    Favourite answer:

    I only would come here on occasion. There is a discourse I go to instead nowadays.

    Yahoo answers has been circling the drain for the better part of five years. This place used to be big before the purple came in.The changes meant to improve it killed it.

    Should Y.A. allow freedom of speech week with comments in their final days?

    Favourite answer:

    Yahoo has already made it clear that you have no rights here. Then again the 1st amendment has nothing to do with private enterprise, it's to restrict government intrusion into what people can and cannot say. It's being eroded right now in the guise of "wokeism" with these SJW's walking around wringing their hands looking for something to be offended by. 

    If you think it's bad now, wait till the leftist communists get their way and revoke the 2nd. The 2nd is what gives teeth to all the other rights. Without the 2nd the 1st is gone, the 4th is gone, then the rest will follow. 

    Those of us in the older generation, the ones the little kiddies like to mockingly call boomers will be gone within a few decades. Then these little brain donors will be forced to live in the cesspool they created. We tried to warn them, we tried to fight against the idiocy they want, and we're losing. This nation will be a far different place in just 20 years, in 30 years we'll be less than a shadow of what we once were. I'm glad I won't be around to see it.

    Is Biden a better gun salesman than Obama?

    Shelves were empty literally at all sporting goods in my city. No ammo available, or guns. All sold out.

    this may be goodbye, so will you come say goodbye hunting section? may i reveal who i really am?

    Favourite answer:

    I seem to remember those Nagant questions. I've been around firearms my entire life and have tried to share that passion with others. Sometimes here on yahoo, mostly in my real every day life. I've had one other account before Cane Toad Mutiny (Now CTM, same account just shortened the name) I don't even remember what that account name was. It was back when the interface was green and user friendly. I just now logged in to The Firing Line, I haven't been there in years, but apparently my account still works. I'll send you a PM there.

    What are the dangers of using 5 year old aluminum cased ammo?

    Recently became a gun owner again after purchasing a G19 offline (nowhere to be found during covid locally) and bought all the necessary accessories BUT I'm kinda lacking in the ammo department. I'd say after my first 100 round range trip I'm gonna be down to only having my 4 mags full and no spare anything. 

    I did however have the foresight to keep all the ammo from my previous guns I've bought and sold over the years AND they've all been 9mm so all the ammo can be fed through my new gun. The issue is some of the ammo is upwards of 5 years old at this point (all carry ammo I've spent every range round I've ever had) and hasnt been stored ideally. But none of the rounds have rust on them and they're all good brands, Hornady, Barnaby, Federal Etc. and all primers look good to go I've scraped up around 60 rounds looking in my car and around my house. So the question is should I give them a good dust off and keep em to the side or should I have a good day at the range with em and just call it a day.

    OR the horrible third option. Are there hidden dangers I should know about? When I started keeping em I woulda shot em without thought but now that in wiser I'm a little skeptical.  Would love to know if I have to re buy any of these rounds which have all skyrocketed since lockdown and beyond.

    P.S. RIP Yahoo Answers I've been coming here for years sad to see this might be one of my last questions

    Will you hunt with me in spirit?

    It has been a long time since I came to Yahoo Answers, but when I heard it was closing down soon, I had to come say good-bye to the forum where I spent the most time, Hunting. I remember some of you. Don't know if you remember me or not, but I remember some of you. The recent years have been difficult for me. The last decade saw my job restructured out of existence during the Great Recession, then while I was starting up a business I was diagnosed with cancer, which I battled for several years. Though I am now in remission, both the disease and the treatment took a lot out of me that I may never get back. It's been years now since I was able to do the kind of week-long deer camp I thought of as "normal." I'm still rebuilding my strength in hopes of being able to pull a high enough draw weight to bowhunt this fall. We shall see! Come with me in spirit if you like, and I will send my spirit to the field with you, too.

    Will the assault rifle ban include hunting rifles?

    Favourite answer:

    what they consider a assault rifle and what many americans own is much different. may look the same but may not have same functions. assault weapons are automatic. most of what american citizens buy is semi auto. some have no bayonet stud. shucks, some bolt action rifles are more powerful in the wrong hands than the ar's people own. and ar doesnt stand for assault rilfe, it was for armalite 15 the father of this line.

    For a gun to be "in battery", the breech must be closed and locked.  Must the hammer also be cokked?

    Favourite answer:

    Yes, you have defined "in battery". Just like baseball...just because the batter is in the box doesn`t mean the pitcher is on the mound.

    (or has to be)

    CTM is correct.

     As far the word that YA censors...just use zero instead of o. That has always worked for me. There`s absolutely no reason for "c0cked" to be censored if used in the correct term.

    Light primer strike 12 gauge?

    Hi everyone.

    I had a light primer strike problem with a 12 gauge shotgun. It is a reputable Turkish manufacturer Derya, 14 inch barrel pump action shotgun. At the range we tried two different types of ammunition and it had the same problem of light primer strikes with both. If I put a shell in the chamber by hand directly, it fires every single time. The problem was when I was loading from the magazine through pump action. It would simply not fire. The gun is clean. When I came back I did a pencil test, put a thick pencil in the barrel, held the gun vertically and pulled the trigger. The firing pin threw the pencil all the way out. What else could be the problem? It fires when loaded directly in the chamber so hammer spring and pin are not an issue.

    Beretta 92a1 cycling issues?

    I bought a beretta 92a1 back in February brand new and have only been able to put about 150 rounds down range on it. Since owning it, factory rounds will cycle through the gun perfectly fine, but the slide won't lock back on the final bullet. 

    On reloads, the gun will either stovepipe or fail to eject every single round. 

    What does this sound like to you guys? The reloads are the same load as the factory I fire. Even tried a slightly hotter load and it didn't help. Is it because the spring is so new? is the recoil spring too heavy? Do I need to cycle more rounds to break in the gun? Everything is factory and I'm not sure what's happening.
