    FBI agent has negligent discharge at nightclub

    I’m not sure a fed employee is ever “off duty” when public opinion is involved. I’ve heard of several careers end for much less than shooting someone—presumably Drunk. In a club. After a backflip. *(Politicians excluded)*

    Buds has P365 in stock

    I really want this gun to work. It’ll take the spot of my p290rs which has been 100% after break in. Finger crossed but I’m getting nervous.

    The Ruger LCRx with 3-Inch Barrel

    4 years later, here we are. I’d like to have a 3” model and then put the grip from a traditional LCR on the frame. Apparently it can be done. Easy to conceal and a reasonable sight radius. Win win.

    New holster you guys will appreciate

    Leave it here and tell me more. Who’s making these?
  6. I’d go find a old Ruger service or security six at that budget. Assuming it’s not abused, it’s probably the best sub $500 revolver out there—if you can find one. I picked one up off the TGO about 6-7 yeas ago for $350 I believe. Best shooting revolver I have outside of the Dan Wesson’s.

    My small carry is the Sig 290rs. I love it and I’m excited that the new 365 is basically the same idea but with a larger capacity. Still, I’m gonna wait this one out a couple months to make sure I’m not a beta tester.

    for-sale Rifle, pistol, shotgun, oh my!

    I read your tile as “a shotgun, a rifle and a 4 wheel drive”. ......Free bump for almost nailing the best classified title ever.

    Let me help you spend $300....

    I had that thought initially. But, It’s got a very good ceramic coating and all of the other components seem to be very well made. I’m not saying he’s not got a nice margin on it but I imagine a good chunk of that is going to shipping. It’s around 70lbs as delivered.

    Let me help you spend $300....

    I have had a itch to get a new smoker lately. While doing some research, I stumbled on the Pit Barrel Smoker. This company is owned by a Iraq war vet and it is 100% made in the USA. I was pretty much sold at this point. Two weeks ago, I made the drive to the nearest dealer. This happens to be an ACE hardware in Gatlinburg. I wanted to take a look at one of these in person before pulling the trigger. Needless to say, it came home with me. You can have it shipped to your door at no additional charge but I didn’t know anyone who had one so I wanted to lay hands on it before purchasing. I’ve gotta day, I’m impressed! I’ve done wings, ribs, pork tenderloin, brats and a whole chicken. Everything has turned out as good or better than previous attempts on my gas powered vertical smoker. This is marketed as “Cooker” and I think the primary reason is the operating temp. It’s pretty much set it and forget it (which is great) but it runs between 265-300 degrees. This is a lot warmer than I’m used to but I can’t argue with the results. The manufacturer has a great website with instructions and recipes which include specific cook times. I’d recommend you check it out if your in the market for a new grill/smoker this spring. https://www.pitbarrelcooker.com/ I attached a picture of the finished products.

    Why should I buy an AR-15?

    They aren’t my favorite but they are functional. I consider the AR to be the Glock of long guns. Ugly but Highly customizable. They do what they are designed to do—send rounds down range without much drama.

    Dan Wesson Pistol Pack

    Ive got the same pistol from about the same year. Wish I had the pistol pack. The Dan Wesson was grandfathers only handgun. He was a one rifle/handgun/shotgun guy. For what it’s worth, he knew how to operate everyone of them. I wouldn’t give any of the three up for anything now that he’s gone. It’s a solid shooter and quite the looker as well.
