    jimlj replied to a thread Ford diesel mechanics ??? in Our Town
    I'm no diesel mechanic, but I have worked on quite a few company and personal diesels. On the Cat and Cummins engines I have worked on I was told to use only Cat or Cummins thermostats. A 3208 Cat engine in a bucket truck I had was heating up and I...

    I used a PSA lower kit and have been happy with it. My son and a son in law both have AR's that they spent several hundred more on, and both have said they like my trigger as good as theirs.

    jimlj replied to a thread cell phone shopping in Our Town
    I can't really comment on ZTE phones as I have never had one. Since I got my first cell phone in 1995 for work I have had at least 10 different phones, and all of them worked as good as the cell service in the area. It seemed nothing was as...

    I have bought a lot of things used on ebay or local classifieds. I've only been screwed a couple times, and never bad enough that I have shied away from doing it. I think selling something you take a bigger chance of being taken. I had a Dodge Neon...

    jimlj replied to a thread Rain, rain, go away in Our Town
    I was in HI in mid September. It rained hard a couple days. I was one of the few people on the beach. Where i live, it would have been a 50% chance of snow. 75* and rain felt good.

    jimlj replied to a thread .22 ammo??? in Our Town
    PSA has the best price right now that I have seen for a long time. Federal Auto Match (my favorite) and CCI Blazer. 5 boxes and you get free shipping. Not sure if they ship to HI though. The local gun stores and wally world have shelves full.

    People have asked what I didn't like about the G23. Not really sure, maybe a few things that added up to really not liking it. Part of it is the grip angle, which I know won't be helped by a 9mm conversion. Part is the snappy recoil which would be...

    jimlj replied to a thread Seller and Beloit primers in Our Town
    Back to my OP, I was asking if they were soft, which appears they are not. The ones I shot the other day all went bang with zero problems. Just wondering about the bulge around the firing pin strike. Factory Federal aluminum case ammo had the same...

    I've a had a set of good quality micrometer's (up to 4") for 30 years. I bought an el cheapo electronic caliper several years ago. The problem is not the tool, it's the dude running the tool.

    Anyone here ever buy a gun they just don't like? I bought a G23 about 8 years ago I have never liked. I should have sold it years ago when I could get what I paid for it. I doubt I could get half what I paid for it today. Has anyone here bought one...

    Are Seller and Beloit primers soft? I purchased a couple hundred at Cabela's to try since they were about half the price of CCI or Winchester primers they had on the shelf. I loaded up some 9mm and had a chance to shoot some today. There is a...
