    San Diego ABC affiliate : "People line up to legally make untraceable guns"

    If memory serves me right (it does sometimes).You cannot use an existing registered action and modify and remove the ser.#.It has to be a new made by you action and then kept for your self. I'm not positive but I don't think you can give it as a gift.

    What causes corrosion in copper pipe?

    In my experience electrolysis shows up as pitting,erosion shows up as a smoother wear.fluid moving threw pipes always causes an electrical field and if there is any conductivity to the fluid you can get electrolytic action such as any well water with a few minerals in it.(plastic isolater's maybe)

    Screw ups at work... how long will employer put up with it.

    I think the best thing to do would be to talk things over with your boss and get advise from him or her.They usually have a better understanding of your ethic's than you might think and could help you.If they don't care then your work environment might be part of your problem!

    Don't know why lodging a complaint to the management wouldn't be realistic? If nothing else just to the fact that you keep bidding job's and don't get considered even after the fact of dropping prices unreasonably low. Ask for an explanation maybe.
