Re: Smoking at the Pump + cell phones

Ya got me to! Good one. And it's as dangerous to be yakking on a cell phone while pumping gas. Under some conditions, especially if you touch a grounded object while handling a cell, a small static discharge can happen. Gasoline vapors + small spark == boom. Most gas pumps even have small stickers o...

Re: Had to Pull My Gun Today!

Dogs are the reason I carry. In 2013 I was walking in a neighborhood and came around the blind corner of a fence. A woman was walking her two dogs off-leash approaching the same blind corner from the opposite direction about 20 yards away. When they saw me, both dogs charged. I backed up to the fenc...

Re: DME provider fraud (not gun related)

I ran into the same gouging when I was prescribed a CPAP machine 3 years ago. They charged $3500 for a machine I can clone on EBay for $400. They do the same type of price gouging on consumable supplies. Ebay is now my preferred vendor for consumables. The thieves want $120 for a new headgear harnes...

Every day hearing protection

Hey all, I suffered a catastrophic hearing loss in my right ear several years ago. It worked out as my wife snores so I just sleep on my 'good' ear and all is well. So all I have is my left ear and it's not hearing as well as it used to. I know that if I ever have to actually (god forbid) use my EDC...

My first ND - with a stun gun

I bought a stun gun for my wife and also for each sons girlfriend, for a total of 3 stun guns. We all gathered together last night for a family meal and I gave the presents to the girls. As I was demonstrating the use of the stun gun, the middle finger of my left hand somehow came to be near one of ...

Re: Making your own cleaning patches for bore cleaning?

I use cotton flannel. You can pick up left-overs (partial yards) for a little bit of nothing at sewing-supply stores. I bought 3 yards of it at Walmart for $2.00 earlier this year, and that's enough to last me a couple of years. Flannel doesn't 'shed' and is very absorbent - works nicely for general...
