  1. I should have posted this earlier, for you Mobil 1 users, here is a rebate that is being offered through Mobil 1, I think its $10 per 5 quart size containers, up to a max of $30: https://www.mobil.com/en/lubricants/promotions/mobil-1-2021-rebate
  2. Well this is my experience: I switched over to full synthetic Mobil 1 years ago in my diesel truck, my daily car and my wifes mini van. I also went from oil changes at 4-5K miles to oil changes at 10K+ miles, any less from my research you are throwing money away, full synthetics are designed to go longer, maybe 20K miles. In addition to proven properties of full synthetic over conventional oil, I have documented that all my vehicles get an average of 2-3 mpg fuel improvement of using full synthetics over conventional. If I hadn't proved it to myself multiple times, then I would not have me

    Water wells?

    6 years ago, moved from a house with city water/sewer at around $90 month to a house in the country with a well at $0 per month. Since moving I estimate we have saved over $6,500. Water tastes better, and never a problem with pump capacity (family of 6 & 3 bathrooms), but due to hard water, it does challenge my Keurig from time to time on deposits buildup. Previous owners had installed a filtration system and it has a UV system too. I change the simple element filter about every 6 months at around $10 and have never had to replace the UV light. Full disclosure, we did have a w
  4. Having a reminisce moment at this old old 2013 thread. This very month, I had a fellow coworker whom I have worked with for 7-8 years who invested $50K back when Bitcoin was <$900, and to my total surprise, just gave his notice he is retiring from work at age 40, a high stress automotive industry job. He says he cashed out his bitcoin, and hired an accountant to advise on taxes. Says he can make it now without a job. He has 4 small kids and a stay at home wife. What am I doing wrong.
  5. Look at total cost to refinance, your incumbent lender should be more competitive vs. introducing a new financial institution as to the cost to refinance goes, and all should be very close i.e. first or second decimal on the actual rate. This is what I recall when I last did this 10+ years ago, and am one of those over thinkers. You owe it to yourself to do a thorough due diligence, its only your hard earned money in jeopardy.
  6. To me sounds like a standard run of the mill gun show, except the op left out hover rounds running over your toes, and the constant sound of tasers.
  7. The first gun show after Sandy Hook in 2012, I threw out the idea of looking for a return on investment when reloading, something I had pondered some 20 years before. So I changed my mindset from a cost savings to a model of if I wanted to shoot, and maxed the credit card. But within 6-12 mos most everything went back to normal, and though I reloaded from time to time, found myself resorting back to store bought ammo. Fast forward 8-9 years later, I still have the same mindset of reloading, but now I have the experience and reload virtually all my calibers. Glad I stocked up on a life tim
  8. I'm a gun nerd and excel guru. I actually have a excel spreadsheet tracking system and separately a spreadsheet scoring system on the my top 20 guns I want (my bucket list). If I didn't have the scoring system, I would simply buy buy buy anything that shoots and probably never get to my top 3 or 5 on the list. The scoring system keeps me honest to myself, allows me to budget, plan, and work to a goal in a priority manner. The scoring system has worked well for 10+ years and has yielded great focus. Its rare for me to break rank. My tracking system tells a good story on the gun, fro
  9. That catalog brought back memories of strolling through the toy section of the Sears & Roebuck catalogs in the 70s the Christmas version. Lots of things I would circle. However, I am with you I would not trade any of my W. German guns for any item there, but I would trade some greenbacks for a few items.
  10. Since you are in Athens, I recommend these folks, I know the owner, great people great selection: https://www.easttennesseeautooutlet.com/
  11. Whew....I'm glad the government recorded the one in Vonore as an earthquake. Me and some buddies were shooting into large amounts of Tannerite. I mean large amounts.
  12. Sadly I have a way too many, my father loved 22s and inherited 1/2 of what he had to add to my own. He was not a fan of the 10/22: Anschutz 1450 Mossberg 46B - I have (3) Mossberg 144LSA Remington 510 - I have (3) Remington 581 - I have (3) Remington 541S - I have (2) Remington 541T HB Remington Nylon 66 Remington Mohawk 10C Remington 522 Savage Anschutz 54 Sporter Stevens 87A Wards Western Field 04M 401A Winchester 69 Winchester 9422 H&R 929 Revolver - I have two of these NAA Revolver Beretta 21A

    I got in on the Brownells deal from early in the year, had to wait about 7-8 mos to take delivery. Then Brownells gave out $25 gift cards for the ones that waited. Used the $25 gift card towards a 12 round magazine. I am very satisfied with the gun, its size, and its accuracy. I use a Crossbreed Founder Series Supertuck IWB for my carry holster.
  14. Back in my FFL days (25 years ago), SOG was one of my major suppliers. I use to buy Chinese SKS $19.99 each. One Labor Day weekend, I purchased I think 100 SKS a few days before with free shipping, sold all but a few for $39.99 that weekend. SOG was good to deal with back then.
  15. My take, on guns still in production or still available everywhere, I try to follow the 80% rule meaning if buying used the used "asking" price has to be <80% of what I can buy it new for. One cannot expect to get new pricing or close to it, when there is no warranty provided and there is just peace of mind of the gun ownership history when buying new, if used there is always that slight risk. Magazines, even Glock OEMs, if one is patient can be found in the $18-$20 with free shipping from internet retailers. The fun sticks can be found too relatively not much more in premium. So to s
