I regret that ShasVre's thread regarding, "How Krag avoids rim lock"?, has been removed from the KCA Forum. There was interesting thought and discussion in the posted responses.

"Parashooter" provided a very good graphic that displayed, how the angles and 'geometry' of the Krag-Jorgensen magazine well, forced the .30-40 rimmed cartridges to line up "in echelon", with the rim of leading cartridges in front of trailing cartridges.

I was impressed with "Parashooter's" explanation and the use of the wonderful term, "in echelon".

Ironically, while I was posting on the thread, there was an advertisement picture, at the bottom of the KCA Page, that showed two shapely young women from the 1960's walking in echelon.

I could not resist the humor of the situation. I copied and cropped the photo and added it to the thread.

I should not have done that. Regrettably, the whole thread appears to have been removed. My apologies to ShasVre, Parashooter, the Administrators, and All.

I am APPALLED at that thread being pulled, to the point of considering dropping from this board!!!  Have we sunk so low? A couple of fully dressed ladies (probably long dead) and a couple of bad puns - is that so terrible"

Dick Hosmer, I always enjoy your contributions and was worried, since I had not seen you post in a while.

It is all nice guys here. I find the KCA one of the most enjoyable gun forums.

You are such a fine person and resource.

Please continue!

Thanks!  I'm fine, just hasn't been a lot of items of interest to me, and, we are working seven (7) days a week to close our antique store by 12/31 (building is being sold). Beginning to feel my age at times.

VERY sorry to see that we have apparently become so nasty-nice Victorian/PC in my absence. Or, did someone post something REALLY bad that I missed?

Possibly, the thread disappeared, because a poster removed his response, "they're abreast", (instead of "in echelon").

I can still find the thread through my 'personal page', but, one response is missing.

That member was simply heeding the caution that we had wandered 'off topic'.

The World has gotten way too complicated.

Yes. Didn't think it would take out the whole topic. Embarrassed

It's not on my personal page, so the censor(s) have removed it completely. Sad, there's way too much of that going around - I'd not expected it here. Interesting that the moderator has not chimed in.

Seems it still exists somewhere. Perhaps only the link was removed. Try this one (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

Dick - Parashooter's link works.

I think disappearance of thread was innocent and unintentional.

I for one did not remove the thread, only a suggestion to stay on topic. We will look in to it.

Yes, thank you. In these tense times, a little humor is a welcome relief.

I personally enjoyed the discussion!  Simple bit of knowledge explained so much!!!

I especially liked Parashooter's graphical explanation.

From our "tech guy"
The thread still exists - it looks like it isn't showing up on the board properly.
Let me see if I can bump it to the top again.
All set - looks like it was some sort of indexing issue where the thread was simply not indexed in order by date.
It was not removed."
