  1. My 550 is about 15 years old and has run thousands of rounds with no issues. A little white grease on a clean push rod and bearing plate has worked well for me. A can of keyboard air will help keep the turntable clean too. Only thing I’ve ordered for it has been primer load tubes. I think my grandkids hide them from me. If it ain’t broke don fix it!

    I just pay the fee and enjoy myself. Cheaper than golf or chasing women.

    Guess I’ll have to pay to fish. I can still catch them and know what to do with em’.

    Guys, I closed this add for the carry-size .357/.40 yesterday because I decided to give it to my grandson who's getting out of the Navy next month, and I've already sent the slide off to have it milled for an RMR optic.

    The full-size P320 in .357/9mm is still up for sale, and I dropped the price to $500. According to Gallaway Precision, the 9mm slide can't be milled, (at least they can't/don't want to), but the .357 Sig slide can be milled for $175 + shipping.

    I’ll take it! 

    pm on the way. 

    “ No problem here! “ you got out cheap. I gave my grandson my new Sig P220 Legion when he finished his A&P school. He’s now maintenance director for a flight school. We thank him for his service.

    You mean an invisible fence?  Once a dog gets up the gumption and charges across the line, they won’t do it again to get back in the perimeter.  

    Yes. I did indeed mean the invisible fence. I was texting with my invisible brain.

  5. The electric fences work great. My brother has two labradoodles. One is a sweetie and wouldn’t go anywhere on her on. The other one is brain dead boy who hasn’t been fixed and runs like the wind. They both stay well within the zone of the fence. They required no shocking only a tone and vibration from the collars. 

  6. I went through the same thing last week. With my past broken bones and back issues I had a few pain killers I could dust off. With that said, a shot of whiskey at room temperature held on the tooth actually gave me more relief than anything. Hell, when I was growing up our next door neighbor would pull teeth. God I miss the simpler times in life. Although back then I think your local drugstore would help you out on a temporary basis. Guess this was before all the legal eagles came along. 

    hope you get a quick resolution. Not much worse than a tooth or ear ache. 

  7. I turned 67 on groundhogs day. I’ve dislocated both shoulders, broke left arm twice, skin graft on left hand from a fight with a FedEx conveyor belt, bone spur on left knee, gall bladder tried to kill me and was removed, 1 ruptured disk and 1 slipped disk and heart attack requiring 2 stints. Other than these minor issues I’m in pretty good shape. BS.  If I were a horse they would have shot me years ago. 

    Hope you’re on the mend!

  8. Just Good, Cheap entertainment. Prices for guns are all over the place. Some seem too expensive, some seem too cheap and some seem exactly as they should. In my 40 plus years of horse trading experience I’ve figured no matter what you know, sometimes you slip up and pay too much for a firearm or fall into a really good deal. A old friend of mine told me that you could never pay too much for a firearm, you could just buy it too soon. Many times I’ve paid too much only to find it’s worth twice what I had paid for it in just a few years. Best investment you can make. Better than money in a bank.

  9. I Am a “Fatboy” driving a 2011 Silverado Z71. I have put just about 100k on it and burn about a tank of gas a month. Truck still looks new, wish I did. Retirement has it’s perks!

  10. My best set of golf clubs took me many years, too many rounds and way too much money to finally get what was best. (For me) I own guns that have never had a part replaced or a gunsmith’s touch that are marvelous shooters and great EDC. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve also got some guns that I’ve spent a small fortune to get them to shoot like I want but it just ain't happening.  In short, shoot what you shoot best, carry well and it doesn’t matter if it’s a big box store special or the meanest, tactical military grade, updated and approved one to be found. And by all means spend every dang dollar you can doing it.
