    What was your very first firearm?

    Stevens 16 ga double barrel handed down from my dad who bought it new. Still have it. One of my boys will have it someday but for now it's staying with me.

    Lost another Music legend!!

    I agree. I never knew she sang "The Weight" but just got through listening to it. I went into it thinking it couldn't be as good as the band. Not bad but IMO it's not even close. I might not be the best judge on this because I loved The Band and The Weight was my favorite.
  3. Wintertime, no problem. Summertime, not so much. I have never found a solution and have quit worrying about it for the most part. If I knew how to fix it I would. Most of the time I carry a M&P compact under a t shirt pulled up against my side and sweat all over it. It prints bad but I can,t say people know it,s a gun. Even when I carry a Kel Tec PF9 it still prints but not near as bad as the M&P. Maybe it,s my build, I don't know. I've never tried IWB but don't think it's for me and don't want to have two different sizes of pants. I'm watching this to see what others do.

    High Shooting in Texas

    This is the way it was when I was in school also and half the trucks and cars in the parking lot had firearms in them. They were brought into shop class to be worked on. I remember one being raffled off in school. No one would even imagined (I finished in 1974) someone shooting up the school.

    Goodbye REI

    I don't think I've ever heard of REI before today and don't know anything about them.

    Pressure washer hard to pull start

    Do this. If mine does not start in two or three pulls I have to let the pressure off and start again or I can't pull it anymore. If it starts right off, no problem

    Welding For Dummies

    The duty cycle is the best reason (or excuse) for getting a 230 volt. I have a Hobart 175 mig and have hit the duty cycle one time after owning it for years and that was welding a DIY bumper kit for a Jeep. That's a lot of welding on 3/16 steel. I have also used 110 migs on thinner steel that I was hitting the duty cycle more than welding. It's frustrating. What ever you do get gas. You'll be glad you did.
  8. It does me too. Someone on my road does that. They don't just blow it out there. They work the grass all the way across the yard and completely cover the road. I would like to get my hands on one of those jet driers they use at race tracks and make a pass by every time he does that. Blow it all the way to his house.

    Opinions about Geissele triggers

    I have a SSA and a SSA-E. Love them both. Two different types of guns, two different triggers.

    Vintage Gun Photos

    Is that Steve McQueen? Whoever it is, it;s kind of a strange picture with the gun, gun belt, and spurs with a race car.

    Ha, I've never noticed that but I can see it after you brought it to my attention.
