  1. A few of my memories from when my son was an undergraduate recruiting assistant for Billy Napier. My son said Saban didn’t normally allow the bottom feeders to get a SEC Championship rings. This must have been special to Saban. I blurred out the last name on the ring. Those who’ve interacted with me know it. Unfortunately the G.O.A.T. wasn’t as generous with National Championship rings. I was all over that place, even in Saban’s private office. The coolest thing I saw was the old anti-gravity treadmill they used to get Mark Ingram ready for the natty. It cost a fortune at the time. Those are Mark Ingram and Derrick Henry’s Heisman Trophies. A little off topic, but my son is finishing up his PhD at Florida, and he says Napier is still a down to earth guy after all these years.

  2. Just FYI to everyone here, I went into Opry Mills mall the other day and spotted gunbuster signs at the exit from Bass Pro into the mall itself. I have no idea how long they've been up since I go there once in a great while, but I don't remember them being there the last time I was there. Personally I don't think I would go to Opry Mills without a weapon of some sort, but you make your own decisions. Just providing some info.

  8. Alright everyone, I think I have a heart breaker on my hands. If my research is correct, this a model 1917 Commercial version. Should be so so soooo sweet. Yet, at some point, someone replaced those plain walnut stock grip with a weirdly orange plastic one. Absolutely heartbreaking. However, it is still a very rare find. From my research only around 1,000 of the "truly" commercial models remain in existence. It is easy to prove that this is a commercial vs a military refurbished by the S&W insignia being on the left side, which only the commercial had, and the fact that the finish is factory nickel not blued. As always, I am sure some of you experts in these old Smiths know more than me and can correct any mistakes I have made. I'm looking at my S&W standard catalog 4th edition on page 192-193 for my information. Serial number is 179833. Since the stocks are plastic for a tricked out rocky top look (Go big orange?) I will be asking $500 OBO since even though it is rocky top orange it is still considered a "rare find" by the standard catalog but I am willing to hear reasonable offers.

  10. Dad loves finding cool little tools to give as Christmas presents to my brother and me. The one he found this year will be very helpful. How many times do you need to figure out what size a random bolt or nut is? Usually I take it to the hardware store and start trying it out until I find out what size it is. With this tool I can now figure out out pretty much any odd bolt or nut I have. It has standard and metric and different thread pitches. Pretty simple idea but it will be very useful.

  14. well today was the day, I actually thought we were going down to 5137, we went to 5470 the watch stopped working just after passing 5400 feet. While this is not the 3k meters it was rated for, this is still quite impressive. At the moment the watch looks fine at depth, the second hand stopped so when we bring the Sub on deck Ill take pictures of the watch and uodate this

  15. Not that it will stop these idiots from passing a law they know is unconstitutional, but the SCOTUS has already ruled that an infringement on ammo is the same as an infringement on firearms. Sadly, the twits that pass these laws have unlimited tax payer dollars to defend these laws in court.

  16. Military is limited to FMJ ammo by the rules of war. Which makes sense in a combat zone. Kill an enemy soldier and you take him out of the fight. Wound an enemy soldier and you then need at least one, probably two men to care for and evacuate him. Thereby taking up to three men out of the fight. Civilian ammo is designed to do as much damage as possible with a single round to achieve a one shot stop or a clean kill on a game animal. Lots of people buy surplus military ammo because its generally pretty cheap compared to commercial ammo and many don't know the difference. So they use it for self defense or in some cases, crimes. Once again, the antis have no idea what they're talking about.

  17. I have always had a problem seeing those gun buster signs. It's like they just fade into the background. I finally went and got my KY permit. They don't have that stupid law here. You can walk right past a sign here. All they can do is try to get you on trespassing.

  22. For those of you who know me in the real world, I have over 20 years ROV experience. Nowadays I run ROV projects for Oil and Gas Companies. I have always loved products made in the USA. Recently I purchased my first Ocean Crawler Dive watch. I like it so much that I reached out to the owner of Ocean Crawler and offered him my Ball watch for 3 future releases, he accepted, and I could not be more pleased. As I said American made. The Ocean Crawler Core Diver watches are guaranteed to 2000 feet, this is overkill I know but they actually have very expensive pressure machine and put them through the ringer before they leave their facility. The Black and Orange dial watch pictured on my wrist I am wearing now. The Blue Dial Ocean Crawler with the leather strap in the picture is coming to me after Jan 31st, and is one of the 3 I get for my Ball Oceaneva is another Micro Brand here in the USA. These folks make a diving watch that is guaranteed to 3000 meters. I reached out to them and asked if they would like me to test their 3K meter watch. The Gold one pictured on my wrist. I wore this throughout the Holidays. It is a great watch. Currently the ROV boys have it and we will strap it to the frame of the ROV and video we will be working at 5137 Feet, and see what happens. Oceaneva gave me the watch to keep, and is sending me a personal one for doing this. I will try and put the video and results on here in the next couple of weeks

  26. For the sub-floor openings, cut sheet metal to slightly oversize of the opening. Run a bead of silicone around the edge of the hole. Your hardware dealer can reccomend something with tack to it. then self drilling screws around the edges every 4-6 inches. I can't tell if you could do the same around the trunk but if you can, use construction cement to glue it in place. (liquid nails). One option Good Luck!

  28. Get yourself a used cracker box on market place or ebay like a 225amp or 250amp Lincoln . Then practice running rods on a flat piece of metal. Then when you get the hang of that you can learn to get two pieces of metal to stick together . Once you get the hang of welding things together you can then learn more about your machine and how to run different processes on it such as tig or mig and what equipment you may need to do so. Welding stick can be a fun and not so expensive hobby but once you get into lots of different processes and more and more fancy equipment to do a better job and make things easier it gets very expensive very quickly. If your goal is to weld machine parts together very precisely you are better off getting a welding shop with good equipment and experienced welders do the job for you. if you just wanting to learn welding as a hobby just start with a cracker machine until you outgrow it.

  30. Evening folks, I got a .25 caliber Model 950B by the good folks over at Beretta. Since it's a B it was made prior to 1968 but I am unsure exactly when. Included in the sale is the simple leather holster pictured, one magazine, and a crisp handshake. Serial number for this baby is B71452. Asking $250 OBO

  37. I have two friends that are brothers and diehard Bama fans. Their Mom is elderly and lives alone, they both check on her daily. The oldest called his brother when the news broke and said “are you sitting down?”, he said “no, is it Mom?” The oldest brother said”No! It’s worse, Saban retired!”.

  39. Depends on what grade you get and what they have currently available. Service Grade $1250. Pistol may exhibit minor pitting and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips are complete with no cracks. Pistol is in issuable condition. Pistols may contain commercial parts. Field Grade $1150. Pistol may exhibit minor rust, pitting, and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips are complete with no cracks. Pistol is in issuable condition. Pistols may contain commercial parts. Rack Grade $1050. Pistol will exhibit rust, pitting, and wear on exterior surfaces and friction surfaces. Grips may be incomplete and exhibit cracks. Pistol requires minor work to return to issuable condition but is functional. Pistols may contain commercial parts. Inventory is constantly changing as crates are unpacked and processed. This a quite a savings over U.S.G.I. 1911s on the open market.

  40. Thanks for the review. I've been using a Labradar myself but it can be a little finicky to get it working (direction and elevation of the beam, getting the bullet offset set up correctly, getting the muzzle in the right position to pick up the report without hitting it with muzzle blast, etc). If something ever happens to it I will seriously consider getting one of these.

  41. P.S. I would NOT foam at the tub openings. That will make it near impossible to get that plumbing undone if that's ever needed in the future. Basically you're making removable plywood access panels.

  42. The duct opening is normal, maybe a bit larger than needed, but all foundation openings are bigger than the trunk lines going through them. You should NOT be seeing daylight through there. It should fit snug against both the wall and the HVAC and should be sealed with silicone. Check that the sides go down into the dirt so there's no way for critters to get in unless they tunnel under the metal shroud. If not, pack some soil up against the bottom and put some gravel over it to help minimize erosion. For the plumbing holes, take a piece of cardboard down there and cut a template for each side. Then transfer the pattern to a piece of plywood. A couple of screws up into the OSB above and a short 1x1 screwed into the joist to support the "inside" edge will do it. Run a bead of silicone or caulk around the edges and call it a day. Easy to remove if you or a plumber ever need access to those fittings in the future. Put some silicone around those copper pipes going through the OSB too.

  44. If you can’t find a class to attend. Maybe get a book and watch u tube. Or better yet find someone close and see if they’ll get you started. If you just want to put a couple pieces of metal together just get a Lincoln buzz box. They run on 220 volts and will run about any size rod you want. Down side it’s AC only. Not as nice as a DC machine but will do anything you want with smaw. And for only a couple hundred dollars. I used to say it only takes 30 minutes to learn how to weld but about 50 years to get good at it. Lol I gave up after 45 years in the industry. Good luck a burn a lot of rods.

  45. Good evening everyone. What we have here (aside from a failure to communicate) is a S&W mod 36 (S&W .38 Special) made between 1962 and 1966. Round butt original wooden grip. Flat latch, serrated front sight, checkered hammer, grooved trigger, blued finish, 2” pinned barrel. All the goodness. Serial number 415103. You can read more about it on page 242 of the S&W Standard Catalog 4th edition. Only indication of wear is at base of front sight, and a small blemish in the metal on the right side near the screw. Asking $550 but willing to hear reasonable offers.

  46. The military operates by a very different set of requirements and limitations for the ammo they utilize. What is appropriate for a .mil context generally doesn’t fit the needs of the civilian shooter, and the opposite holds true as well.

  48. Military grade, LMFHO, civilian ammo is much more accurate and more effective. FMJ is not in my EDC or SHTF stash for a reason. Most military ammo just needs to be 3 or 4 MOA, whereas target or hunting rounds try and achieve at least 1 MOA, most sub MOA, and they are designed to DRT your target.
