Re: Paint Removal

Depending on the paint, you could get some non-chlorinated brake cleaner, spray it down and brush it off. There is some plastic friendly paint stripper out there, can't remember the name of it.

Re: Cities improperly posting 30.06 signs?

My daughter was riding with our niece yesterday and was involved in a hit and run accident. Nothing major, just cracked paint on the bumper. Anyway's they went to the PD, just 150 yrds away, and filed a complaint. When I got there, saw the 30.06 sign, no 30.07. Signage is compliant with code, but no...

I'm not seeing the OP's section 109 language in the engrossed bill.

Did a text search for "Permits individuals to possess firearms" as well as simply "firearms".... Not found anywhere.

Sad
Would that be the Engrossed Amendment Senate? If so, it is stated in that.

Re: Well I earned another badge of honor today....

I am in complete envy of you. I have several posts on FB, that I would think would be worthy of a slap, but noooo, they allowed me to keep them up.

Re: Ted Cruz Sign

As much as I would love to display a Cruz sign in the yard, I elect to not do so. While the town I live in is mostly red, the loonies are here as well. I'll keep gray and let my preferences be applied at the polls.

Re: Interesting Night Last Night

After a bit more looking at my pic, I have concluded that the snake being the meal, was not a copperhead, but a glossy snake. The glossy snake is non-venomous, mostly nocturnal and it's diet is mostly small vertebrates, like mice and lizards. Still cool to see anyways. Excellent! I had heard of it b...

Interesting Night Last Night

Last night about 1 AM, my dog started barking, thought she was barking at the deer, as usual. But noticed her bark was a little different, so I went to the door and knocked for her to come. When she got to the porch, she turned and started looking at the ground, ran back down the stairs and stood ab...

Re: Anti-gun folks are hypocrites

The anti-gun movement has NOTHING to do with saving lives or SAFETY, it has to do with POWER. Those who have the ability to defend themselves have the power against tyranny and keeps folk in check. Once the populace is disarmed, then they are controlled. Those who seek this could care less who lives...

Re: SCCY CPX-2 Own One? Pros and Cons Please!

My brother got one for his wife a while back, didn't want to feed. So after doing a bit of reading, found it was due to burs on the feed ramp. So I got the pistol and buffed the ramp a bit, it shot smoothly after that. This was also with aluminum cased ammo, told him to get some brass ammo and it wi...

Re: Part 1 - What Color?

I have been contemplating the same issue. I want to paint my AR, but don't want the usual camo patterns or the use of FDE furniture. IMO, FDE is not very good at masking a weapon, unless you are surrounded by miles of desert. Looking around at nature, you see browns, greens and grays. So my idea on ...

If you have a three speed on the column, might as well leave the keys in it. 20 years ago in high school, my friends couldn't drive my truck.
Yup three on the tree, that's what I learned to drive on at the age of 10. Fun times.

Re: iPhone autocorrect is anti-gun

Not available on my computer! Once you put in the to and from destinations, it will give you some options, like where my mouse pointer is, then you can choose what to avoid. Seems like now these settings don't persist, use to be an option in user settings for this. http://imgur.com/QBQ6wSZl.png htt...
