  1. Netflix series

    If you have Amazon Prime I recommend Bosch. I'll try to think of some Netflix shows..
  2. National Reciprocity?

    Whats actually in the bill? Has anyone read it?
  3. for-sale 2002 Toyota Corolla

    Bump with a lower price. I remembered I also had an oil analysis done by Blackstone Labs at 177,000 miles if anyone wants to see it.
  4. Remington 870 DM (Detachable Magazine)

    This is neat but I really hope they have made strides on their QC.
  5. I'm no help with the knife but congratulations on the new job!
  6. We've decided to part ways with our hail damaged Corolla, aka "Hailey". My wife bought this vehicle in 2009 with around 80K miles. It's been one of our daily commuters ever since. I still drive her daily and she currently has 196K miles. No fancy features. You have to roll the windows up the old fashioned way. The Good Extremely reliable. She's never failed to start or left me stranded. We drove it to Myrtle Beach and back in August. I average around 30 MPG I am pretty anal about maintenance. See the pics for the maintenance log I started in 2014. Everything works, even the air. Many people have reported 300k+ miles on these engines with very little problems. Much like most Toyotas, this car has been cheap to own. Mechanically, minus the issue below, I believe this is a solid vehicle. Tires in great shape. They have around 15K on them and I believe they are a 60K mile Cooper. The Bad The check engine light is on. The code reads catalytic converter. I've had it inspected at least 3 times over the years and each place has told me essentially not to worry about it. I couldn't justify the expense. She burns a little oil which is a common issue with this 1.8L. I add 1 qt every 3k and Toyota recommends changing the oil every 5k. She has not gotten worse over the years though. The oil consumption has been consistent. Salvage Title due to the hail damage. The Ugly Hail damage pretty much all over. She got hit by the 2010 hail storm that rocked West Knoxville and we bought her back from State Farm. The clear coat on the hood is peeling. This started after the hail. Both bumpers also in rough shape. The body has seen better days but I've done a good job of touching up rough spots and keeping the rust away. Overall this would make a great daily driver for someone who doesn't care about appearances and needs an inexpensive but reliable vehicle. She's not the vehicle you want to take to prom but she would get you there and back safely. I've tried to be as transparent as possible. Please let me know if you have any questions. $1,700
  7. So We Sit and Wait.....

    So what does that mean?
  8. That It for Butch?

    If their first choice is any indication as to who we will end up with then I'm extremely disappointed. I had never even heard of Schiano and when I looked him up and saw his 68-67 record at Rutgers I couldn't help but laugh. Great job Currie!!!
  9. Remington on life support?

    I wouldn't buy an RP9 for a lot of reasons. It being ugly as sin is the least of my worries.
  10. A Week of Thankfulness 2017

    I'm thankful for my amazing wife. She's not just my wife but rather my partner and best friend. She makes me realize I need to be a better husband. She has to be the most easy going person I've ever met. I'm also becoming more thankful for our health. You don't appreciate this when you're a kid and feel invincible. This can change in an instant so I try always keep this in mind and be thankful for it. Lastly, my friends and family. It's nice to know I have people I could lean on if i needed help.
  11. Got to meet!!!

    AJ is good people. I enjoyed meeting him as well!
  12. Black Friday 2017 Deals

    Yep. I failed to receive my shipment once(not their fault) and they promptly sent out a replacement. It was a big order too.
  13. Owners of SIG P238 with Failure to Feed Issues

    Agreed. My wife's 238 started showing some pretty unusual wear on the barrel(metal actually disappearing). I sent pics to Sig. They agreed it wasn't right and sent me a new recoil spring. I'd give Sig a call and they will probably take care of you.
  14. Mass Shooting at Texas Church

    @Murgatroy part of me wants to be angry for the same reasons but another part of me thinks he would have just purchased a gun from a private seller. I am really disturbed by the fact that mass shootings are becoming all too familiar. It wasn't that long ago that something like this would have stayed in the news for months. Now it will likely be ignored by the media within a few weeks(just like Vegas). It's sad that I have to discuss possible escape routes with my wife for her work. I'm not advocating any new laws be passed but it's hard to deny we have a problem. As a country we seem to have cornered the market on mass shootings. I think we're going to get to the point that any mass gathering is going to require a high level of security. The future looks bleak when I think of what's likely to come. I'm picturing a police state that is "justified" because of repeated attacks that will continue to get worse. We're probably at the point where we need a school resource officer at every single school. My county already does that for the most part and I think it's a great idea but sad that it's necessary.
