    I work as a tech at an auto dealership. My department has three techs and works Monday through Friday, 7a-6p and alternate one day off during the week. So one week I’m off Monday. The next week I’m off Wednesday. The third week I have Friday off...

    We have a paint store locally that will do just that. It’s great for precisely matching auto paint codes. A friend of mine is a rally driver and has to do a decent amount of painting different parts to match due to the abuse his car takes.

    My pops started me with a single shot Mossberg .410 but that was too much for me as a pup. He eventually got me a 10/22 and hacksawed the stock to fit me. The cut was very rough but it fit me well and I loved that rifle. Once I outgrew it I found a...

    I only recently started dabbling with swaging. I bought BTSniper’s BTSimple .224 dies and auto eject system for my RCBS press. It took about 15 months to get the dies, the swaging process is very slow and time consuming, and it will take about...

    I picked up a 5k sleeve for around $75/k a few months back. Just loaded and shot a box of cast 9mm with them this morning. So far so good!

    To be fair, almost all of the Yokohama tires I install were made in the U.S.

    My wife-to-be cried the first time she saw one of my firearms. Mind you, her grandfather had recently taken his own life with one so much could be linked to that trauma. I put the rifle away and let the situation cool down. Eventually she came with...

    That sounds like a poor design to me. On the newer Hondas a new tire with worn ones can throw off the tire pressure monitoring system which can in turn disable traction control but you can just recalibrate the system to the new tire(s) and it will...

    I patch tires all the time. We are not allowed to plug tires. We pull the offending road hazard out of the tire, ream the hole, and cement in a plug-patch from the inside. For those who are unfamiliar with them they look like a rubber toadstool with...

    I have double coated plenty of times. If you’re mixing them with single coated you’ll likely have minor variances in weight. For pistol I doubt you’ll be able to tell the difference.

    I’d like to see anyone who claims that a 9mm Mak is “no threat” volunteer to stand on the business end of one. That’s about as ridiculous as it gets. So I guess the .380 is useless as a carry caliber too. Better tell the thousands who carry one...

    I still feel like a greenhorn when it comes to casting. I only have two iron molds but I do prefer them over my many aluminum ones. I’d love to try a nice brass mold. I should really buck up and get one ordered.

    I imagine rental MGs get run hard. Nothing like full throttle all the time. Did it seem the Vector required repair more frequently than other models with similar usage? Do you remember what caliber it was? I’m not surprised they’re proud of their...

    Sincerest condolences. That’s a very long life for a cat though. Losing one is crushing but be grateful for such a long time together.

    I appreciate the input! I’ll have to look more into the B&T. It’s quite a bit more expensive than the two I was considering but not out of reach. Have you had the chance to shoot one firsthand?

    Some people are just broken beyond repair. There was a similar story in a small town near me. A dog that belonged to a local panhandler who always sat at the one stop sign in town. The man passed away but the dog kept coming to the stop sign. He...

    I have a hankering for something new and different. The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 and the Kriss Vector currently have my attention. My plan is to purchase the pistol variant and then F1 SBR it. I’ll be running a Dead Air Ghost-M on it at times. With the...

    Wifey and I picked 15 good sized morels this weekend. Pan fried some like my great grandmother always did for breakfast. The rest I sautéed in butter with some minced garlic and mixed it in with some browned butter pasta and spinach. SO good!

    Ha! I like shooting down the fuzzy buggers too, except I use an electric airsoft rifle. It’s kind of like a dogfight with them diving and juking and my pellets flying by like tracers. When they connect it’s not uncommon to blow the little pests...
