What you described is what is happening the same for me.  This started a week or two ago.  

When I go to add a photo to a post, everything goes normally. and I see the the photo has supposedly been added, but when I enter it, the photo doesn't show up.  But, if I copy the URL for the photo, and post that URL as a link, the photo shows properly when the link is clicked on.

Hmmm, this thread is loading slow for me too. Other threads seem fine loading pics.

Could be the Servimg site that hosts pics is moving slow, due to having so many image requests for one page.

Could be the hosting service, but it would not be be that slow for just one thread.

Maybe split this thread into 2? If you have to load all the pics in sequence it might take a very long time.

It is probably due to a slow internet.

If pictures are taken with a smartphone they can be huge, thousands of pixels wide and tall. This slows down transmission as the files are larger than they need to be. IMHO pictures should be cropped and resized down to 300 to 500 pixels tall with a free (for non-commercial use) utility such as IrfanView, https://www.irfanview.com/

Wes, all that may be true, but until a couple of weeks ago, I never had this problem.  Now it appears all the time.  

Any photo with my watermark at the bottom right has been resized to 800 pixels wide.

Other photos, such as from my iPhone, never caused a problem in the past - but most of my concerns are from wanting to see other people's photos.

(On my Mac computer, I use Adobe Lightroom, which adjusts and re-sizes the images to any size I prefer.  I picked 800 as it's big enough to show the detail, but not overwhelmingly big.  For people viewing on a phone, it's actually very small.....)

I will try to do my best to slow this down more. Very Happy It has been a couple, 3 or 4 years since I posted more then a picture or two at a time on this OP. I have some pictures I recently took that I would like to post but some explanation might be needed. I took these with the thought in mind of how I would take them to a match. I then assigned them a team name based on scores, function, manufacturer, grips or sights. I know that is OCD (super OCD?). However my hip is bummed up right now and since I can't shoot for awhile I might as well play. Teams A-C are scores. Other groups obvious.

Your pistols are going to get lonely without you!!   :-(

Just added two new BE pistols to the fold.  I have worked on my Beretta 92FS so it now has a crisp 3.3lb. trigger and is very accurate. Several club members have asked me to work on their 92's so they can use them in centerfire matches. My next one is a Springfield Range Officer in 9mm. I changed the 9lb. recoil spring to a 12.5lb. spring, the heavy main spring to a 19lb. spring and put in a Colt Competition sear spring (all from Wilson Combat). I gently polished the sear, and tweeked the sear spring and my trigger is a very crisp 2.6lbs. BTW, it is also safe, no follow through and I cannot push the hammer off the full cock notch. This gun is as accurate as my model 52, but has a different feel to it. The RO has iron sights for now only because it shoots so well.

Len V informs me that he has already claimed the title "Ultimate Reeves" gun, but I have normal sized hands and so I guess that I have to call this my "Ultimate Wimps Reeves" gun!

A S&W K16-4 in 32 Magnum (but I only use 32SWL wadcutter strength loads) with a SIG Romeo 5 red dot on a home made mount and fitted with very nice Photoescape shade tubes extended in front with a 30mm Ultradot extension. I'm still experimenting with grips, but currently favour this Pachmyr Gripper grip.Show Me Your Bullseye Pistols - Page 13 Img_2242
Show Me Your Bullseye Pistols - Page 13 Img_2241
As should be the case for a "Wimps" gun, there is negligible recoil and it is very accurate. I have a problem learning to Single Action sustained fire and so am currently Double Actioning both Timed & Rapid. The trigger (which, AFAIK) is stock S&W stages very nicely. Only problem so far has been light strike mis-fires when using Fiocchi factory ammo. But not a problem with Federal. My expert will play with springs and stuff over this winter and find a solution. I plan to work up a long line recipe with Hornady JHP bullets and continue using soft wadcutters for the short line.

K16's are quite rare - if you see one for a decent price - Buy IT!!

Interesting, I'm overseas too at present. I get the same:-

Cannot open them in my Android phone. But, on my PC, if I right click on it and "open in a new tab" I can see the picture. 

Academic exercise - not interested in HS anyhow!

Gee, after trying lots of tricks, I get the following.  I guess this post and my other one can be deleted once things are fixed, but it's rather strange.  Len, maybe it's something to do with being overseas?

Mike, I must confess that I am giving you a bad time. I was never able to see it either. I think you have to subscribe to photobucket to see pictures in that format. Or Cortena whatever that is. Sorry Mike I couldn't resist. Very Happy

No problem, Len - but I did take your thought seriously.  I dunno.  I'd really like to see the photo, but I can wait until someone else sorts this out.  :-)

Found this really cool USGI National Match recently. No SA markings, I suspect it was built by a military armorer. All the usual old school mods, relieved half cock notch on hammer, excellent crisp trigger with shortest reset of my considerable 1911 collection, peened+lapped slide fit.

It appears as if I may have been the first person to shoot this thing off of the armorer's workbench. The parkerizing has not even worn off the sides of the hammer where it rotates in the frame. The barrel bushing is extremely tight, the frame to slide fit is perfect with no movement, and there is no appreciable wear anywhere but the grip panels.

All i had to do to the gun was oil it up, replace the hardball springs with a #12 recoil and #18 main more suitable to the ammo I consume by the truckload; back off the trigger overtravel to prevent the sear and halfcock from dragging (reset is still VERY short) and replace the murderously stiff magazine catch spring with my favorite wolff reduced power. The gun shoots beautifully; it required some serious windage and elevation adjustments to get it centered @25 (more evidence to me it has not been shot much if ever since build) but performed well at that range. Recoil is brisk, probably due to the steep profile on lower barrel lugs and amount of contact on upper lugs; pretty consistent with my other guns of the era (Clark Sr, Giles, Shockey).

All in all, I am very pleased to own another piece of nostalgia (for a very reasonable price I might add) and will ensure it sees action in upcoming CMP matches.
