Re: Poll time! You are the first newly installed air marshall.

Ill take the judge. I can conceal it in a fake arm cast, which would be an excuse to have conversations with the sexy stewardess a bout suspicious characters in first class.

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

So I have had a pouch of the Old El Paso ready to eat Chicken Queso Tortilla stuffer in the cupboards for a while. Last weekend I was home alone and wondering what to have for lunch. I grabbed the pouch and checked the date. Good until June 2016. I can't find a picture of the particular meal, but th...

There's several people I don't save the number in my phone for to force me to keep their numbers memorized. It's bailed me out a few times when something went wrong with my phone or ba...

Re: Uses for charcoal

The charcoal is wood chips, purchased for use in a smoker, usually a nut tree or a fruit tree. The different woods add subtle differences to the taste of the smoked meats. I prefer apple for pork and the general consensus is that hickory is best for beef. Most any fruit tree works well for chicken, ...

Check around the Internet, man.

If you need ammo cans it's almost never worth buying them local unless you have a good hookup. I ...

Wow, glad to hear your ok, and sorry to hear about your 2. I shoot a 40 caliber Glock also (G27). My first thought when you mentioned that you had several failures to fire preceding this also made me think about a squib round.

I do like taking my daughter to the range and just shooting a few hundred rounds of ammo at a bulls eye target at 50 yards. She shoots my Ruger 10/22 and I usually shoot my AK. I also enjoy shooting IDPA matches. It's a bit more of an adrenalin rush between the time factor and the fact that your "co...

I carry a Glock 27 (same size as your 26, but 40 caliber) in a Fist IWB holster and I find it to be more comfortable than the OWB Blackhawk holster I use to shoot IDPA. I use the Blackhawk for IDPA because it does hold the gun out from my side a little more allowing a slightly faster draw. The fact ...
