I have a shop in back in which I restore and modify cars of all types and models, but some how always ends up more mustangs than all others combined. Retired from construction in 06 to pursue a dream, I built my shop and now I walk 100 feet to "work" (if you can call it that) each day with a big smile on my face. The only draw back to this is the fact that I don't have enough time for my own toys.

I'm a retired Canadian serviceman with almost 27 years in the Navy where I was employed as a Hull Technician (Shipwright). My current employment is as a civilian Safety and Environment Inspector, working on the same ships that I used to sailed on, with a whole different attitude.

I make custom concealment holsters, from Kydex.

Wow, that's what I call custom fit, nice! The last time I saw anything fit that "custom" was wearing a bikini on a Tuscany beach.

Thanks! Kydex is wonderful stuff, Jim, and making it form to the gun is the easy part. The real trick is designing and making a holster with both a smooth draw, and firm retention (two qualities that are somewhat opposite), that will conceal a full size pistol, and ride comfortably enough for all day carry.

I agree 100%, you need a firm retention so it doesn't "flop out" but you can't afford to have it "stick" when you need it. The key is the fit and material used, it certianly appears you guys have mastered that.

Easier to post a link than explain

 

So does your car have half integer spin or integer spin?

 

Chuck

 

Nobody really knows what spin is, much beyond the fact that it is an

attribute of an elementary particle. Charge, mass, speed, energy, and angular momentum are among other attributes. You've probably noticed that some of these attributes are intrinsic to the particle and can't be changed (e.g., mass, charge), while others can be gained and lost (e.g., speed, angular momentum). Spin is actually

two attributes, one of which is intrinsic, the other of which can be

gained or lost.

More about this later.

 

Although we do not have a deep understanding of what spin is, we do have a mathematical description of how it behaves -- in particular, of how the total spin of a system of particles depends on the spins of the constituents. This allows us to compare spin's behavior to the behavior of other things that we feel we understand better. One thing

we have noticed is that spin behaves a lot like angular momentum (which also is really two attributes).

 

Angular momentum is a vector quantity (something that has both a magnitude and a direction, like velocity) that can take on only certain values in quantum mechanics. Think of angular momentum as an arrow of some length that can point in different directions, but you cannot ever have complete information about the direction. In particular, if you have measured the projection of the arrow along the z axis, you have

gained a clue about what the total angular momentum might be, but you have also destroyed any information you might have had about its projection along any other axis.

 

Another thing we know about angular momentum is that, in quantum

mechanics, it cannot take on just any old values, but only certain specific ones. If a particle has three units of total angular momentum, then its projection can be any of (-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3) and that is it: projections must differ by an integer number of units. Very weird, but quite

a handy fact: if you know that a particle's angular momentum can take on only two different projection values, then you know its total angular momentum must be 1/2, and the projection values are (-1/2, 1/2). If you know there are three projection values, then you know the

total angular momentum is 1, with projections (-1, 0, 1).

 

Spin acts like this, so everything you've just learned about angular

momentum is also true of spin. In fact the mathematical description of the way spin behaves is so similar to the math of angular momentum that we can even do a mathematical trick that allows us to

pretend that spin and angular momentum can be added together. However, the magnitude of the spin quantum number is an intrinsic attribute of a particle. All electrons have total spin 1/2, with two possible projection values, as we've seen. The projection can be changed, but the total spin of 1/2 is fixed for all time. It is part of the

definition of an electron. All photons have spin 0, and for them "projection" does not seem to make much sense, but it is

clear anyway that the number of possible projection states is one.

 

A curious and very mysterious thing is that the quantum mechanical rules for particles that have integer spin are very different from the rules for particles with half-integer spin.

All the half-integer particles (e.g., electron, proton, neutron) must be

distinguishable from each other: if they are in the same system, they must differ in at least one quantum number.

Not so for the integer-spin particles (e.g., photon, meson, gluon). These are allowed to be indistinguishable, and they can all have the same quantum numbers including position. It so happens that particles with half-integer spin are the particles we think of as making up matter,

and the particles with integer spin are those we associate with forces.

Why spin should be the thing that distinguishes stuff from the forces between stuff is unfathomable to me, and that spin

should do this in such an apparently arbitrary way (half-integer as

opposed to integer) suggests to me that our understanding is fundamentally flawed, and that the real answer to your question

-- if we ever discover it -- will be part of a deeper understanding of

/way/ more than spin.

 

That's what I thought.

Beth used to cut hair for 15 years, but now she slaves away in the medical production lines of Boston Scientific making heart catheters. I would love to be a novelist. So keep an eye out for me at Barnes and Noble one day. My natural talent is art, so obviously I neglect it hideously.

 

Mark's been a truck driver since about 2001, owner/operator of a 1985 Peterbilt. He's currently leased on with Zimmerman Brothers Inc. near Elk River, MN. He hauled the first load of risers into the new Twins Stadiium up in Minneapolis! Before that he was at Menards for 10 years, and then did the garbage man/mechanic thing for a number of years.

That is a dream come true. My husband often talks about our boat guy, he retired from trucking and works entirely on boats out of his garage now.

Nice work! You need a shooter icon.

 

Got anything for an HK P30? Or what about a P30 with a TLR2 mounted on it?

 

Don, I can do that. This is a P30S with attached Surefire X300 (forgive the not-so-great pic), but I can do a TLR-2 as well.

The truck looks great for an 85. It qualifies as an antique here in Virginia!

Palm Bay? I have a house in Titusville. So dont push the Cleveland too hard, my daughter can give you two hots and a cot and some nice braclets.... and a free ride to your new home.:D hell she'll even be your chauffeur. ````````````````


Im a forensic analyst. I investigate computer crime, hackings, malware analysis, cell phones, hard drives, anything that holds electronic evidence. We handle civil and criminal cases. Before that i was an EMT for a few years, still am. Currently a firefighter as well. I keep busy.

 

WOW .... you guys actually exist?

 

I have just been contacted by a long lost relative in Africa... turns out he's done a whole lot better than me ...he's a KING!!!! Damn with all that good luck they have run him off and he's in exile. i gotta help him get his money out of the country and he's letting me keep a TON of it just for transferring the money to my account until he gets out of the country.

 

I need to get in touch with him....:D

Well seeing as you were kind enough to Bump the thread, and I AM a newbie here, I guess I'll stuff a response in.

 

20 Plus years in the I.T. field doing everything from DB programming, Desk side support to Project management.

 

Before that I did a short stint as an HVAC mechanic.

 

Wish I could make a living just working at my hobbies though

Self employed construction worker, used to have a LINE-X dealership here in UK until the dreaded resesion hit 4 years ago.

Glad to be back building though,cause when it rains i get to go and play with the Mustang.

I am the enrollment director at a mid-sized community college in Texas. I have been working in higher education for over 14 years and I have loved every minute of it. It also helps that we have an automotive program and they do not mind helping me or giving me shop space to work (if there is room).
