Re: My guns don't need to be pretty, they just need to work

This is where my older brother and I diverge wildly. I choose all my firearms for function, pretty is way down the list*. Every firearm he's ever bought I think has gone to the engraver before the range.

*I do this with vehicles too. Drives the salesmen crazy.

Re: Calaveras and Braunig Lakes

Actually both lakes were created when CPS Energy built the power stations and dams. They manage the lakes and dams. Management of the park is contacted out.

Re: Beware the instructor - credit card scam

I think I've gotten four distinct attempts in the last two-three months. I say distinct because twice I got the exact same email more than once at the same day.

M&P®380 SHIELD™ EZ™ Consumer Advisory

Hardly out the door and problem found. Basically, ammo that produces high recoil can cause the safety to flip to the safe position.

What is it supposed to do other than draw even more attention when the goal is to draw zero attention? I don't get it...
