MR. M <> Ok, 2 scale comment/questions: 1) that Kropp ebony - would you mind on your next posting of it, shooting it closed? 2) What's the dubl duck scale made of?

Regarding your apartment: I had nearly the identical issue with my next door neighbor a few years back. Cops came knocking on my door telling me to evacuate. I was like, "this is my phucking house; I'm not going anywhere." Then they told me his wife reported him holed up suicidal with numerous high powered rifles. They could see my house is wood framed & suggested I not take a bullet for that fool. ;) Here, I'm used to it though. In the eight years I've owned my house I've witnessed directly or have seen numerous victims after the offense of serious crime. The best was a Haitian gang decapitation with a machete, I've seen a dude charge the pigs with a knife, and receive about 10 rounds to the chest, in return. Seen a body with its brains blown all over a windshield of a gold Honda Accord, in a drug deal gone bad I'm sure. See crack & heroine deals nightly, hookers turning tricks day & night, beat downs, drunken driving - one actually crashed in to my front yard missing my house by less than 3 meters. You obviously enjoyed the excitement next door... 8-)

Thank you for the info & pics, and yes, I live in the hood. $80,000 upside down in my mortgage after the US real estate market bubble burst so I'm trapped. :evil:
