    Failed background check

    Could be, mine was after I left the AF and DoD contracting so I was read out of the programs.

    Failed background check

    If you ever held a government clearance this will happen to you quite a bit. When I lived in NH it happened all the time. For pistols they used state police checks and I was always approved instantly. For long guns they used NICS and I always was delayed. After looking into it I was told it was due to having been fingerprinted in the federal system which flags you for a deeper check.

    Paul Ryan Lets National Reciprocity Stall

    I guess I misunderstood what this bill was going to enable. I thought it was basically going to treat your TN permit just like your TN drivers license in the other states, ie Full faith and credit. I did not think it was going to have anything to do with the feds deciding who got a permit.

    Anybody know about play station 4 stuff?

    Sometimes the PS4 "forgets" its settings. Check under the audio options and verify the mic is set to headset.

    Fuel Efficient Vehicles

    If you like pickups, it would be hard to beat the Diesel Colorado 369 ft-lb, 181 HP with 31MPG (17-18MPG towing a 2.5 ton trailer) on the highway.  If I didn't already have a truck I think I would be driving one of those.

    A question for Jeep owners

    Not sure if this is still the case but the owners manual states for the JK:   "Checking Oil Level To assure proper lubrication of your vehicle’s engine, the engine oil must be maintained at the correct level. The engine oil level should be checked five minutes after a warmed up engine has been shut off."

    Gaming Systems

    If that is the original Wii (designed to sit vertically), it will also play game cube games if you have the controller and memory cards.
  9. Knoxville as well.  I am guessing it is everywhere.

    landscaping question

    Unless you are going to install sod, it is best to wait until fall to seed anyway.

    Dash Cam

    I currently have 2 in my truck, one front facing and one rear.  Both have been problem free and do a good job. I use this as front facing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GRYT5QI/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this rear: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F2GMUPU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1   I put a 32 GB card in both, at 1080p you will get about 8 hours of video before it starts overwriting.  Also do not keep the G sensor at the default or you will quickly get locked video file with every bump you hit in the road.

    Need some advice choosing cell phone

    Of your choices, I would say you only really have 2 choices, the Note4 or S6 (I have both phones).  The S6 edge is not worth the extra money as the edge does nothing.  The note edge does have a functional edge (ie it is not just a wrap around of the screen) but it is not worth the extra money over the standard note unless you just want the looks.  Between the S6 and the Note4 it would depend on what you want most.  If you want something that is more of a productivity tool then the note 4 hands down.  That s-pen is fantastic.  If you don't see yourself using the pen and don't want the larger screen, then the S6 will be great.

    Yet another Comcast rant...

     I switched to comcast business at 99.95 a month for 2 years.  No caps and 50Mbps connection.  Yes it is more than getting consumer but you also get priority service and since I have switched I have not had one outage (3 months now).  Before I would have to reset my modem at least once a month to get service back. Of course it helps that my company picks up half the bill each month.

    When do we sue?

    There is one issue with NICS and I found this out when I lived in NH.  In NH all pistol approvals went to the state police.  I would go in, get approved and walk out with the pistol.  All long guns were done NICS, I would walk in, get a hold on the rifle and have to come back in a day or two for the rifle.  The reason is (or at least was back in 2000) that if NICS is run and your finger prints show up in a federal database, there is not instant approval.  As I held a TS clearance when I was in the military and worked for a few 3 letter agencies, my finger prints are all over the databases.  When I asked about it that was the explanation I was given for the delay on the NICS.
