When i saw the image I posted the first thing I thought about was the fuse box in dad's garage back when I was a teenager. The door was open on a fuse panel for his welder and inside was one cartridge fuse and one............bronze bolt. :eek: It seems the bolt fit the fuse holder exactly and he had no spares and wanted to get the job done. The problem was that the job was finished months before.

I'm sure it will discharge but a what velocity?


That was the issue. With nothing blocking the casing the ammo went one way while the casing went the other. Because there was no back pressure there was not much velocity nor kinetic energy to either piece. Had the shell casing been prevented from dislodging and pressure been allowed to build up it would have been a different story.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
