  1. I was referring to the gens of engine that existed at the time of the 326 and the 66/67 body, but sure in the later ones. Though you would never mistake a 70 for a 66/67 if you thought you were racing a GTO with a 326 which sounded like the thought. That's wasn't a reference to 389 but the Lemans's joke name. If it had a 326 (the smallest or wee....) then it would have been a lemans since GTO's never came with 326 in 66/67. Not that folks didn't pimp the hoods of real GTO to make it look like one. Maybe in this case they didnt swap out the engine badges?
  2. Goats had 389's and 400's, the 'Lemons' had the wee poncho 8. But no doubt that 6 was top of the heap for its kind. Cars we wish we still had. That could be its own thread. Crazy to think what these cars sold for at their low points. I almost picked up s 66 Charger RT, but at the time I didnt like its look compared to the sexy lines of 68's. Of course today, I'd probably take a 66 over a 68 just because they are different. Maybe that's the thread, cars we almost bought?
  3. For those that are concerned about reliability, they don't tend to rush to market and vet their products before release. I have been very happy with my prior holosuns. But the true measure to me was I found their customer service to be fantastic on the one occasion I had to send one back. It felt very much like dealing with Vortex with similar quick turnaround. The few other accounts I've seen in various places also had good experience. I wouldn't hesitate as they stand behind their stuff.
  4. One of the reasons (some) folks pay more for a CMP rifle is the certificate they issue, as it seems to imply it not, or is less of a hackmaster. Older CMP rifles being of more value than newer in most cases. Part of the value is having any documentation that helps establish origin. Folks seem to covered its more parts value, so ease of selling would be helped by having any of its history before it was put to the saw.
  5. Man, I'm thinking I got ripped off paying $400 for my Buick
  6. Seems to me this thread has identified a much needed spin-off thread. What was your first car.....
  7. I am betting there have been some really great cars that ran thru our hands. 1965 Buick Wildcat. Nailhead 401 Bought for $400 from a little old lady my mom knew. Fun, but dangerous in the hands of a teenager. Use to tick my brother off to no end it was faster than his 73 Roadrunner. Had a real problem with right rear wheel tire wear though.

    M&P 2.0 C.O.R.E.

    Great job on the video! I went a different route converting one my 2.0 to CORE with S&W not having any dates or knowing the ported one was coming. This vid prompted me to check their website, and it appears they will have a Performance Center version for those wanted to go that route using the ported barrel without concern for low light flash that LEO's may want to avoid. https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/performance-center-mp-9-m20-ported-425-barrel-slide-core
  10. No doubt that is the sad part, between the media and certain groups trying to generalize a few bad eggs to all police. No different from the group of gun owners being made out as a bunch of cooks just one bad hair day from becoming mass murders.
  11. My sympathies to the brave men and women of law enforcement. Not only do they already have a difficult enough job, but it would appear in certain areas they have been tasked to take additional and unnecessary risks. Watching this video of a crazy with a machete....well....I dont know. Seems they may have to factor things due to social pressure and appearances over appropriate force and their personal safety. Forced to allow something to escalate to a point where the general public is at risk from not stopping it earlier. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/machete-attack-police-hollywood-173958387.html
  12. With recent interest in both these pieces, thought this review might be helpful for anyone considering either.
  13. There is a distinct odor of fish in the air. They tell us they are shooting at us, we dont know causualties at the early report versus saying we had folks holed up in bunkers. And our awesome sauce anti missile batteries, knowing birds were inbound and from where they were coming only managed to get 2 of 12 or so functiona birds (some didnt make the flight). I think the play of shooting down an airliner as a distraction is the biggest travesty in it. I want to see the White house call logs please.
  14. I guess fishing for an answer you want is one way to go. I wonder how many people would be surprised to find out they dont look as good in an orange jump suit as they thought they would...sorry, what where we talking about again...
  15. That's a great new toy. Is your wife trying to tell you you're slackin?? Gifts where everybody wins are the best. I'm waiting for a Rosey the robot. Soon enough hopefully.
  16. Equating full size with magazine size? If so, what is that minimum capacity to qualify? That would put out a 1911 or 629 for example. Both full size buy only a laughable (the bad guy will laugh at you) 6 to 8 rounds. What about those carry only compacts (not suited to defend your home) like a G19, M&P, or P01 that can carry their larger gripped "full size" brothers mags with its whopping 2 extra rounds. Are they out? Or is it just the mag that makes one feel safe or gets the job done. If mag size is what helps one sleep at night, it seems its not about what fits in the nightstand, rather its the AR pistol under the bed with its 100 round drum. Compacts are issued by PD's and .gov, making them service pistols. G19 being a good example. I'd have to say a G45 is really a compact given its using the compact barrel. I'll reiterate this should be defined since folks are blending service and full size without any parameters leaving it subjective. And a service pistol is not necessarily what most think of as full sized.
  17. Have to hand it to Colt for not trying to encourage them. Why they stopped beating it out of them in preschool I'll never know. At least that was a step up from the old days when they would burn them like witches.
  18. Guess the question is what is midsize? Acreage being cheaper with larger sections, you have to probably spend more than the average person would in today's market. Around here, only developers are buying big pieces in the 1 to 3 million range to get acreage at lower cost. Smaller sections are being sold by speculators around here. @ 30 mins out. Ranges from 4k to 7k on the low end to 10k an acre depending on desirability and amount purchased. Up to 10k - 20k for premium smaller lots (less than 5 acres). I figure I dont know enough to buy land and knowing the developers and speculators already snapped up all the reasonable prices, whats left if seems sketchy up to 45 minutes away. Middle TN over 1 hour out seems to have some good value. But then you are back to having to get resources and any improvements. That's where you need Dave's kinda money again Since that's not me, back to waiting for a market correction.
  19. Y'all may not have noticed the story or follow the links that discussed the history. The last 10 years its been a drone training facility, before that there wasnt an airfield or roads to link the cleared areas where they added buildings. If you look at the satellite image you can see how they spoked out. The linked roads were to both working sites and mock building structures (stacked storage containers) that drone pilots in training would take practice runs on. May well have been owned by paper companies years before, but probably just forested area. Looks like it hasnt been stripped for quite some time. Wish all acreage was that cheap! Great for hunting, but man would it be expensive to develop. Historical info indicted the base power was supplied by on-site generators, that I guess they did not leave behind. Not for a paltry 9 million. "https://www.google.com/maps/@35.1760093,-88.0220308,3694m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!7m1!2e1"
  20. Merry Christmas all. May your hearts be full and stockings heavy.
  21. the price is posted in the link. Its on sale! I dont think you have to win the lotto, from Davids posted pics of toys, I am sure he'll cover the first 8 million or so. Decided military style lookouts and decor. Similar to the towers they put up around hardended ordinance bunkers on bases. No fuel tanks, so great thing is no messy toxic clean up. Not form that anyway.
  22. So equally too far away from everywhere. Both good and bad?
  23. Ok, now you're just showing off. Once you get a shooter like that, you'd never want to get rid of it. I remember when CDNN was liquidating the SAR's...looks like the buyers showed just how smart they were about appreciating those gems.
  24. It would be polarizing. Folks appreciating the execution and work vs having a coronary about seeing an Imbel with holes drilled in it.
