    It happened in 1977

    James Earl Ray escaped from Brushy Mtn prison, and Johnny Majors coached his first UT football game.

    What in the world is this?

    Looks like a dog to me as well. Could be one of the "wolf hybrids" that some folks think are cool.

    My first date with my wife was to see the remastered version of Episode IV.

    Need input: M&P9 Shield v1.0 versus v2.0

    Other than taking the whole gun apart, it's not bad. There's a couple videos that show how to do it. Field strip, knock a couple pins out, pry the guts out of the frame, swap the trigger (which involves a bit of controlled hammering), then put it back together. Having 3 hands would make the reassembly easier, but I got it. Based on the videos, the full Apex kit with trigger, sear, and springs really is taking the whole gun apart. Again, not too bad other than some of the tiny pieces can be a pain if you're fumble fingered like me.

    Need input: M&P9 Shield v1.0 versus v2.0

    I put an Apex aluminum trigger in my shield 1.0 and that made a big improvement. I much prefer the blade style trigger safety over the hinged. I also have a Hogue slip-on grip that makes it feel better in my hand. I'd guess those 2 mods add up to nearly the difference between the 1.0 and 2.0, but the 2.0 still has the hinged trigger so I'd want to change that regardless.

    The Great Commission

    Done that a few times too. We were in downtown Chattanooga and had eaten at Mellow Mushroom. As we were walking back we came across a homeless person. My oldest offered up his pizza leftovers (still warm). Proud papa moment.

    The Great Commission

    We used to encounter a fair number of homeless people in college. We quickly adopted a standard response of, "I don't have any money, but I'll get you something from the cafeteria if you're hungry." One guy took us up on the offer. We loaded him up and he thanked us, sat down, and ate.
  8. My mom got a Subaru Outback for the same reason.

    How much for a new roof?

    My shingle roof was replaced due to storm damage about 5 years ago. $11k for a 2000 sqft house with high quality shingles. Powder coated metal roofing was north of $20k.

    Does Fiat still own Chrysler?

    Nope, it was because the "normal" car already has the vast majority of the "police" upgrades from 20 years ago. It already meets the "police endurance" specs, hence the 100k miles of the past is 300k miles today. Police cars don't have bigger brakes because modern brakes are huge and there isn't room for anything bigger. They don't have "heavy duty" cooling systems because the normal car is designed to sit idling for hours and not over-heat. They don't have high output alternators because the normal car already has one. The base electrical loads have increased tremendously over the years.
  11. Except for the Odyssey. I know several people who've had fairly serious issues (transmission, engine, HVAC, electrical gremlins) with those. My M-I-L has a CRV and it's been fine, somewhere north of 100k miles. They pay stratospheric dealer service prices that make me cringe, but the vehicle hasn't needed anything unusual.

    Ruger LCP II

    I've never carried it without the +1 mag, but always in my pocket. It's a little thicker and a little longer, but that only matters if I'm wearing more fitted clothes.

    Does Fiat still own Chrysler?

    Keep up with the routine maintenance and most newer cars will last a long time. 300k is the 100k of 25 years ago. Stuff wears out, but it's rare these days to see an engine failure where the engine had oil in it at the time.

    Yes. It was Daimler Chrysler before that. Do what you've gotta do to survive.

    Ruger LCP II

    I have a P3AT and an LCP custom (not the LCP II). As Mike says, functionally they're identical. The Ruger is generally nicer to look at and to shoot, but it's also slightly bigger. I have a +1 mag for the LCP which contributes to both the bigger and nicer to shoot.
