Re: TX: Package bombs in Austin

An unintended consequence might be less "porch pirate" activity in Austin. Anybody tracking that metric?

I was on painkillers 24/7 for a while. I had excellent care from Texas Back Institute in Plano, TX. My two doctors were Dr. Zieg...

Re: Interesting Non Car Buying Experience

I haven't used it myself, but I've heard that Costco can negotiate a pretty good deal if you're a Costco customer. I might give them a try when a new car is my future. My last 2 cars were bought at CarMax (used of course), the sticker is no haggle. Just go to Edmunds.com or another favorite site you...

Re: Removing Flash Hider and Installing A Suppressor

Isn't there some kind of issue doing this with a 14.5" barrel that has the flash hider pinned on? Seems to me like one would be creating an SBR. I agree. I have a POF .308 with a 16" barrel length....but that includes a 2.5" pinned muzzle-brake. If I remove that pinned brake, then I'...

Would you say that's 19 pounds? Is that about right?

Just trying to figure out if that's accurate.
