    A while back I destroyed the factory "Silence-Air" suppressor that came on my 1st-Generation Umarex Octane break barrel air rifle. I was wanting to see if that plastic suppressor really did quiet down the report of this particular air rifle so I...

    Hi Randy: I see it all taking place just as you've described with your Hand Press example. I wish I could get everything spot on the very first time but that's just not how it works; at least not for me any way. Designing stuff seems to be...

    Well, the surface finish sucks and the detail in the fine lettering failed to print clearly but, as a proof of concept print I couldn't be happier. Everything fit together as it was supposed to including the fit onto my Umarex Gauntlet air rifle. ...

    In my neighborhood there are one or two mocking birds who's life I'd like to cut short. I'm not kidding, these two birds can be heard making their racket/chirping round the clock. I've gotten up at midnight to take a leak and I swear I can hear...

    My eye sight sucks too. So much so that I've had to mount scopes on my powder burners and all my air rifles now have peep sights. I've come to the point where I just make my own peep sights now. Great idea with that cartridge casing and those...

    This is actually my only 1911 but the reason I've owned it so long while other hand guns have come and gone is because it accurate, reliable and easy to shoot. I've had it so long that the finish had started to show it's age. A few months back I...
