    But only when you're referring to a bank draft, i.e. Write a cheque for a purchase. Checking off a list is still "checking".

    This reminds me of those 4X4 ads in the classifieds bragging about the truck including a 3000 lb. wench. I'll bet that truck had uprated springs...
    How do you tape for a scope?

    I use both. A banker has a chequing account, and a hockey player can be good at checking.
    I have no signature block.

    A check is when you try to put that winger through the boards.

    Bad time to bring up the SKS as an exceptional sniper rifle?

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".
