Doc has "varied" interests and is a *guru* in non-AR realm as well.
That was essdee1972's WIP that doc was getting consulted on.
FF seems to be facing the same problem of resizing and centering that I did. Could you please do something about it ? Meanwhile I shall paste direct links so all the rest can benefit.
Dear PM, We certainly missed you (and talked a lot of your progress on sharpies and dremel) and also the lawyer (what's his handle ?)
Anyway, here's some introduction to the prime time that IFG CMG had -
We all assembled at brihji's place to take a peek at his Turbonator and the Gas Ram (nitro-pistonized) Orion. Of course that also provided an opportunity to flush out the sharpies and take a few pictures.
slingshot - the Man with a literal "Treasure Trove" in a wooden chest flicked out his Boker+. Such a small thing but effective and deadly.
Now if Boker is what our slingshot uses to file his nails, well this is what he uses as a toothpick - a Leatherman !
The ever-enthusiastic essdee1972 was quick to jump with "Me too. Me too." So we all took a look at what he was up to these days. Of course the gurus (Moin, the Doc and lanceman) of the sharpies were quick to cast their watchful eye on his efforts here.
Then of course our in-house Mumbai expert on sharpies, Moin, decided to see what the chatter on ARs was all about. he realised that unlike the sharpies, he needed to use two hands and one eye to handle this Brih-special Turbonator.
Meanwhile naughty boy, essdee1972, was quick to sneak around and grab the nitro-piston induced Orion. But was he caught in the act!
The Quartet was all ready to charge in with enthusiasm.
Just then a little angel, "Chhota Jawaan", whispered in AGN's ear - I have a big banduk too, just like my grandpa. Like to see it ?
And he posed - rest assured our future is secured.
While all this was going on, ak49ji graced us all with an all-encompassing divine smile; beaming with pride and joy.
The the Brigadier lanceman got all of us jawans into a parade and that was the time for some serious talk. A field lecture on Sniping 101 (3 credits) . Practicals (1 credit) to follow later.
Then was the time to move out and link-up with fantumfan2003 who has already carried out reconnaissance of the Meeting Point - Bombay Presidency Golf Club. We soon settled in a corner and the talk was on. lanceman enthralled us all with anecdotes from the "action days" - Boy ! What a journey it was !! We traveled all the way from Aksai Chin to Ceylone; from the gatlin gun to the laser finders. Brihji chipped in with his own barrage of jokes (which unfortunately the IFG can not be privy to
). Doc joined in with his own experiences and we had a serious discussion on why certain material on ballistics and forensics should not be posted on the forum. A healthy respect developed for the mods/ admins who do a fine job thereby. All this while food and drinks were flowing aplenty.
Then that time of the day arrived which bade us that it was a time well-spent.

We all had to go our separate ways and man our respective stations. So we decided to bid "au revoir" - not adieu. Well till next time we link up, anyway.
I must have said this before, but here I go again, what a fantastic place IFG is to get so many like-minded folks together in addition to the wealth of information that is so readily available. May our tribe live long and prosper.
