  1. I’m a Tops fan, but I don’t think I’ve ever had their BBQ.
  2. HK has never seemed worth the price to me. I don’t have a lot of experience with them, but do have some with their DA/SA guns. The few I’ve shot seemed to be of excellent build quality, but kinda clunky in design with lousy triggers. A friend had a USP that I joked was an overpriced grip strength tool.
  3. I bet you have better luck at Austin Peay. I went there earlier this year and got there about 45 minutes early and was number 15. There were 100+ people in line when they opened the doors. They were in full blast covid mode and that created more delays. I'm sure it's worse now, but I bet Austin Peay is the best option. On the other hand, you could just photoshop a paper drive out tag and just floor it when the cops try to stop you. You'll blend right in
  4. I wear my belly band fairly snug to keep the gun from bouncing and it's never affected breathing. I do wear it pretty much around my waist and not up higher.
  5. I run with a Glock 48 in one of these and it works well. The gun does get a little sweaty, but it's a Glock and a paper towel makes it like new. I never run more than five or so miles, so I don't care about water. https://www.undertechundercover.com/collections/belly-bands/products/the-original-belly-band-1 I would like to see some pics of your rig, though.
  6. I have a friend who used to drag race an 86 Mustang. He ended up in the high 8s before he gave it up. His car was in Hot Rod magazine. When he quit, you could have put that small block in an F-250 and towed an Airstream through the Rockies, but he spent a retirement on transmissions.
  7. I wonder if one could get away with riding this thing on the trails at Shelby Farms...
  8. Nice find! We had a red 2011 just like it (with a little less chrome), but didn't keep it long enough to see how long it would have lasted (traded it for a Mustang - that is another story). On a side note, we drove it to a cabin in Pigeon Forge from the gas station at Canada & 40 in five hours and 50 minutes and still got 25 or so MPG. And didn't even get pulled over. Good luck with Halbert's House of Horrors.
  9. Exactly. The OP seemed to be referring to a general use daily driver, not a collector.
  10. "Boring" and "reliable" beats the socks off "soul" and "tech" every time. I would look at used Hondas or Toyotas.
  11. Perhaps he had an EcoBoost. They had several Expeditions and I probably got them mixed up. Which reminds me, our old neighbor had an F-150 3.5 EcoBoost turbo die at 38k. I think warranty covered that one, but made me gunshy about EcoBoost. I'm not enthusiastic about turbo, period. And I was always a Ford guy lol
  12. I handled one today and liked it. The owner said he only had about 100 rounds through it, but he's had no trouble so far. It did seem to be a bit under sprung - this is unusual; factory guns usually have too much recoil spring. The ambi safety is worthless - the right side is too slim to be of any use. The trigger felt like it was 5-6 pounds, kinda heavy for a 2011. The grip felt slimmer than other 2011s. The gun is not very useful to me as a competitive shooter, but I thought it was interesting.
  13. Sounded like an articulate young man to me. I had no trouble understanding him.
  14. If I still drove all over the place all day at work, I would buy it.
  15. Another friend had a 2018? maybe Expedition 5.4 that broke a rocker arm at 60k. Warranty was gone and Ford told him too bad. I get that he had no standing, but for them to not work with him on a $50k+ vehicle with only 60k I thought kinda sucked. He is a Ford Kool-aider and he paid out of pocket to get it fixed (several thousand) and traded it in on a new Expedition with an extended warranty. I just shook my head.
  16. How was the trigger? I've read a couple reviews saying the trigger was pretty lackluster.
  17. Friend is a fleet mechanic and sends me pics two or three times a year of the inside of a 5.4 with a grenaded valve train. Don't even get him started about the V10s.
  18. Never been a cop, but when you let kidnappers out early to make space for other kidnappers, you apparently need more space.
  19. I would be willing to bet that pretty much everybody in prison made more than one bad decision. It looks like we need to build more.
  20. If you don’t like for-profit prisons, don’t go to one. Just going by what he said.
  21. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
