Re: Have you seen the Mega millions lotto.....?

Let me simplify it for you. You said above your odds would be 1:15M after purchasing 20 chances. But the reality is if you purchase 20 tickets or number combinations, there are still 302,575,330 possible numeric combinations you do not have.

Re: Have you seen the Mega millions lotto.....?

If you bought 20 tickets, your odds would shrink to "only" 1:15M. The expected return on your bet would stay constant. If you purchase 20 chances, your odds are now 20 in 302,575,350. You cannot reduce it like a fraction, doesn't work that way. Lotteries are a tax for people who are really bad at m...

Re: Have you seen the Mega millions lotto.....?

The odds are 302,500,000 to one. You are 80 times more likely to be bitten by a shark in your lifetime.

And whether you purchase 1 chance or 20 doesn't really change your odds to any great degree.

Re: Anyone know the exact size roll pin punch needed for the tiny roll pin that holds the take down tab in place?

So you couldn't have come up with this brainstorm a month ago and saved me an hour and a half and 50 blood pressure points?... Sorry, it just came to mind a couple days ago. And like I stated above the pencil deal didn't work whatsoever, that pin doesn't come out that easy. But the paperclip rod di...

Re: Anyone know the exact size roll pin punch needed for the tiny roll pin that holds the take down tab in place?

Another brain storming idea I just had to add to the above, cut the .044" paperclip into a 2 inch section, carefully square off one end with a file or sand paper, then shove the other end squarely into a pencil, the eraser end till it stops against the wood. Voila, a .044" pin punch, with a nicer h...

Re: Anyone know the exact size roll pin punch needed for the tiny roll pin that holds the take down tab in place?

I just miked the wire size of a large paper clip, .044 inch. Relieve the frame slightly as mentioned previously, straighten and cut the paper clip to use as a "short L shaped pushing tool", after squaring the tip of the "pusher" with a small file or sand paper. One of the guys here mentioned previou...

I should have never bought a CZ, now I feel another fever developing. Oh I understand, believe me. Like I said earlier, those Czechs has it going on for real, the product quality. They reported months back on the CZ forum CZ is building a manufacturing plant here, that CZ pistols will be produced i...

Thx LT.

I am surprised that there is not a dedicated picture thread here on this forum. Least I didn't find one searching around.
