    I do laser engraving. Part of the business is work on firearms. I offer $20 transfers as there are several guys close by that are that or maybe $25. Lowball store went belly up this spring. He was a $20 store. But there are plenty more around. ...

    Oh, and one nice thing is that it leaves a really good black edge. No staining on edges.

    I use my CO2 laser to laser the pattern and this included the holes and also engrave my logo. Laser works really well on leather as long as it is kept flat. But like all organic skin/flesh, it stinks to high heaven. I smell it for a couple of...

    I was wandering around the other day and ran across a couple of really nice sights that sold leather stock covers for various lever action guns. I decided to make one for my Rossi 92 and as I like stitching, I lasered my holes and the shape of the...

    Would love one, Generac is the brand of quality at this time. Brother put one in about 10 yrs ago after Katrina. We were without power in central MS for over a week. Since then he's been out just occasionally, less than a day, usually 4-6 hours...

    Well, as said by Thundarstick, guess you don't shoot 22s thru a suppressor. I PC all my cast lead, and no issue going through my two suppressors. No buildup. In fact almost all the PC is still in place if I shoot into something besides steel. ...

    I really don't 'Like' glocks, but they DO work. Wife bought a G17 3rd gen and has issue with racking. Added a $17 clip that I could now 3d Print (was injection molded) that tapers the rear. Makes all the difference to her. And a LW threaded...

    Don't know how many of you have a Dillon 650xl press, but I've been playing with a few parts for it. Several pretty good out there, one in aluminum, one in plastic. Quick Disconnect for powder feeder (guess it would work on any of the Dillon...

    I don't know, no easy way to change a person's strongly held beliefs. At any particular time, they may change due to a circumstance, but I would expect zero chance of doing this permanently unless something drastic did happen personally to them. ...

    A couple of more things. I worked during High school for Auto parts. Even back in early 70s there were three price lists. Highest, which was what a shop charged a customer, (in most cases) was list price. Say $100 for a water pump. Next was a...

    I think the solution to these problems is NOT what you guys did, (and I'd probably think first to do it to) and that was to loan a gun to them. No, the better solution, and one that at least would keep their fear going for maybe long enough for a...

    Ha! Each plug of my 2005 Ford F150 is stupidly priced at $19.99 EACH. Two piece plug that will break. Oh well. I had the rear window regulator break a cable last month. Can't just get cable or even motor, whole assembly. $100 at local stores. ...

    UH, no telling..... I use Cura occasionally but mostly rung through repetier-host. It shows the length, but I've never calculated what's in a roll..... I'm guessing several thousand. Time is more of an issue, takes 45min to an hour for each. ...

    Yeah, I'm using a pretty neat program that runs on my Apple IPad. Expensive to get full features, but I can play with it for free.

    10 GALLONS OF GAS? NOT NEARLY ENOUGH! Get enough gas for that generator for at least two weeks. I was 190 miles north of Katrina. We lost power for 7 days, and zero gasoline available for 35 miles in any direction. (found a station after about 5...
