Screw BofA: Part II

April 30th, 2012 | 3 Comments | Posted in ramblings, WTF

So I got a call this morning from BofA saying they had noticed suspicious activities on my account and wanted to verify the transactions.

OK, I figure I’ll bite. They didn’t catch it when my account was hacked and someone bought concert tickets in Germany. They also didn’t catch it when my card was used in Georgia (while I was living in California). I had to call them on all of that. So what was it they caught?

My water bill. Yep, a bill that I have been paying for the last year and a half is now suspicious to them and for that they shut my card off and are sending a new one.

II don’t think the rep I spoke with appreciated me saying that their fraud prevention was the banking equivalent of the TSA.

Doesn’t matter, tomorrow the funds will be moved to a credit union

Frustration and Choices

April 22nd, 2012 | 2 Comments | Posted in It's all about me, Pistol Grips, webstuff

So I’m busy-busy setting up the Rimfire website and have run into a fork in the road that I was not expecting (well, in a way I was, but not in the way I thought… I guess).

I have two ways to go on this site, I can set it up in WordPress and then use a plugin to make a shopping cart but the problem is that I am not a WordPress person – well, except for this site, so making modifications, theme adjustments and the tweaks to have it look just the way I want is going to be a lot of work (reading, learning, trial and error) that in all reality, I would just as soon dodge.

Other option is that I do the site in HTML, which is much more up my alley, and then put a WordPress folder in for the blog.  This would mean that any blog post I do would then have to be manually updated on the homepage with the new post information and create more work that way – which I would also like to avoid.

I’m not lazy, I just would really like to spend my time making grips instead of website updates.

Any thoughts or suggestions on the subject would be appreciated.

Obama booed at Fenway Park

Apparently he was put on the big screen to say some nice words about Fenway’s 100th Anniversary.

Guess all those Sox fans are racist… yeah, that’s

As commenter LaZrtx on AoS noted “Boo’d by voters of John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and Barney Fwank”

Screw Bank of America

April 21st, 2012 | 4 Comments | Posted in Jackass, Libtards, Pass the ammo

After taking BILLIONS in bailout money, and more recently shifting $53 TRILLION of it’s derivative holdings from the investment side to the retail side so that when their Euro investments go tits up (which they will) we taxpayers will be on the hook for it, BofA has done one more move which has made me finally stop being lazy and I am moving my account to a local credit union and Bank of America can burn in hell for all I care.

I’m not talking about when they were opening accounts for illegal immigrants who had no ID (things that we normal people are required to show).  Yeah, even with that I kept putting off the move.  Nope, what made me finally say to hell with them is their attitude towards the 2nd amendment.

Recently BofA told McMilian Group International that they did not want McMilian’s business anymore because of McMilian being in the firearm business.

This is from their Facebook page:

McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years. Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking came to my office. He scheduled the meeting as an “account analysis” meeting in order to evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them. He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and have become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories.
At this point I interrupted him and asked “Can I possible save you some time so that you don’t waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that because we are in the firearms manufacturing business you no longer what my business.”
“That is correct” he says.
I replied “That is okay, we will move our accounts as soon as possible. We can find a 2nd Amendment friendly bank that will be glad to have our business. You won’t mind if I tell the NRA, SCI and everyone one I know that BofA is not firearms industry friendly?”
“You have to do what you must” he said.
“So you are telling me this is a politically motivated decision, is that right?”
Mr Fox confirmed that it was. At which point I told him that the meeting was over and there was nothing let for him to say.

I think it is import for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms should know when a business does not support these rights. What you do with that knowledge is up to you. When I don’t agree with a business’ political position I can not in good conscience support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment for our products.

I called BofA and asked them about this story and the woman I spoke with first denied all knowledge of it.  When I asked her how it is that a major public relations situation like this can happen and she has not been told anything my her superiors about BofA’s response she then stated she had heard of it but had no comment.

I then asked if there was someone I could speak with who could answer my questions since I was considering opening a business account in the near future for my firearms related business.  No, there wasn’t and she had nothing further to say.

So, since Bank of Anti-America doesn’t want my money I will be glad to go with a bank that not only wants my money, but also doesn’t try and shift it’s dumbshit money losing schemes from their own wallet to mine.

Heavy grip making.

Now that I have about 25 sets of full size 1911′s finished out and ready to be textured, burned and finished, I decided to switch gears and work on revolvers.  Specifically the SP101 my wife has.

So, now I am chopping up more pine to test with, working on angles for the grip and finger positions, and generally having a good ol’ time of it.  I’m making a standard grip right now with a middle finger grip and once I have the basic design down I am making a special set for my wife.  Since her fingers are very small (she wears a size 4 ring) I am making the finger groves smaller to fit her hand.

I’m thinking of offering that as an option as well – something like, you send a tracing of your hand and I fit the grips to it.  It’s would need to be more accurate that that I think, but general idea.

Anyway, here is where the new design is at right now.

Yep, there’s still a ways to go on them, but I’m making good progress.
