    • In the ancient days of the seventies, I often read comics. I did not often read the ads on the back. Nevertheless, I was aware that there was a thing called GRIT, and that you could make money selling it.

       I did not know what GRIT was. It seemed to be some sort of newspaper. However, I was aware that newspapers were usually a local phenomenon, printed and sold largely in the area where the newspaper was LOCATED, and what kind of a newspaper out of Pennsylvania is going to sell well in south Texas? 

       USA Today, which is these days the epitome of the American national newspaper, did not exist in the seventies. Newspapers were a LOCAL thing. The whole idea sounded sort of dodgy to me, and likely a thing it did not pay to get hung up in. So, despite regular blandishments and temptations, I did not become one of the many happy and prosperous boys to Make Big Money and Win Prizes Selling GRIT!

      Forty years later, I found out what GRIT was. Turns out it was a sort of crossbreed between a Farmer's Almanac and a regular newspaper, published weekly. It had a national circulation, largely in farming type places, and it WAS intended as a National Family Newspaper, albeit one that sort of specialized in rural matters, farming, and rural trends -- light, entertaining stuff, new farming ideas, a lot of what we'd call "hobby farm" stuff these days, no bad news, nothing likely to upset anyone. It's been around for more than a hundred years, owned by the same family, and predates USA Today by almost ninety years. It apparently was insanely popular during the Depression, and continued to be a decent seller through the end of the twentieth century.

      It's still around.

       ...albeit in magazine form. For some reason, every single issue I saw with a Google Image search seemed to have something on the cover about chickens...
    • Yeah, and I feel like crap for talking them up for this one. Done with RH.
    • Hoo hoo, hoo's dat?


      I almost wish they came with separate wings, so they could be substitute Kenku/Tengu OR Arrakkoa.

    • I ended up ordering the Patriot 105 with the adapter that has the air flow regulator on it after speaking to a product info person. The Krome was a little to much of a fine detail gun like the Sotar. For what I do the Patriot 105 seems like it will be the perfect gun. My understanding and level of detail is way different than other people’s because of the application I will b using it for. As I said I paint Crankbaits which do require detail but not the level of detail like painting miniatures or something like that. I don’t do illustrations so I guess I don’t really need a gun like the Krome or the Sotar. I want to thank everyone for their input on this subject you guys have been GREAT. Also the gun I got is the 3 N 1 it came with all 3 needle/nozzle combos. I ordered through Spraygunner. They had the best price I could find $120 for both pieces. 
    • Very nice! His face and those ornaments came out so well. The wash may be a little unfortunate, but there's worse things to have than a bloody mummy.
