Re: End of NRA Credit Card

Same here. The new penfed card went through the shredder quite well. I only kept the NRA card out of principle, making occasional midway purchases. There are far better cards out there, and as someone who detests using cards in general it just didn't seem to make sense to keep it. It will be interes...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

Anyone have a recommendation for a Smith to mill an XD slide? I've been debating a carry optic for quite a while, and synchronicity being what it is - this thread popped up and shortly thereafter I ended up with a vortex venom NIB in a trade I wasn't anticipating. I'd rather not deal with someone ou...

Re: TX: Do not sell a gun to a man with a man bun

Caveat, there is a gentleman who lives just outside college station who I would sell to again in a heartbeat.. his man bun, along with his 400ish pound physique and bad habit of wearing towels in public are cultural. His exceptional collection of miniature firearms, mostly Berettas and colts in .22 ...

Re: My new EDC Load out

So, I'll share a little sewer wisdom. To sanitize large areas, or solid surfaces - windshield de-icer. Most of them are a mix of methyl alcohol and ethylene glycol. This time of year, they're cheap - Walmart or AutoZone or Napa store brands all the same. I would not suggest frequent hand cleaning wi...

I will not own one until they offer either RC Bray (as Skippy) or HAL9000 as a voice option.

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

Celsius WG, it's a soluble granule herbicide that is phenomenal. It is available online, and while there is definitely some sticker shock - a little goes a long way. As with ALL pesticides and herbicides - follow the label exactly. If a little is good more is NOT better. The vast majority of public ...

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Are you using the hot glue directly on the shot? If so, you might read up a little on wax slugs - with the end being glued it might be performing somewhat as a half slug half shot hybrid. My personal experience with diy shotshells has been with 44 mag brass using the coated paperboard from school po...

Re: Noncompliance Kneecaps New Zealand's Gun Control Scheme

Kicking doors, mass roundups, violent revolution are all great talking points - unfortunately, they are talking points. Control, regardless of topic, comes back to people control and it's a long game boys and girls. No sweeping moment following an election, no tidal wave of change - the enemy may de...
