Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

Ruger pc9. Got one for the ol'lady last year, Takes glock mags, accurate as she is, easy to clean, and twists in half for more concealed profile.

Re: Drug home oddball diesel

I know Olds drag racers can use the 350 Diesel block to build an awesome gas racing engine..... However as a diesel engine they flat suck. "Heavy Duty" and "Bomb Proof" when looked at from the context of a converted gas engine is worlds apart from "Diesel Heavy Duty". Those engines were known for n...

Re: Chevy Avalanche Bed Slide Construction - DIY

Nice build. For the plywood haters, a buddy of mine found a composite of sorts, was maybe 1/4 ply sandwiched between similar thickness metal. Cuts easy enough that he built a replacement grille for his chevy truck from it. Had enough elasticity to permanently bend a shallow v in the center, metal ke...

Re: Take down or traditional

I like my(kids) 10/22 takedown enough to be saving for its larger 9mm cousin. Quarter sized groups at 25y is easy. Just dont waste time putting a scope on it, i didnt have any luck with mounting a scope to receiver, then snapping barrel out. Would find zero, lose it again next takedown. Irons work g...

Re: The Return Of The Ruger Police Carbine; The PC9

The Attwoods near me has 1 on the shelf, for 519.00. I held it tonight, nice, take down is exactly as hard to manage as the .22, easy and felt well built. We already have and are fans of the 10/22 takedown...think itll have a bigger bro around soon.

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

Dont know if youve solved the parking brake issue or not yet, but most bike rimbrakes have a nut on the lever that lets you adjust for wear on the pads, or an out of true wheel. You'll find the brake cable housing running through it. Adjust it close for normal use, and you may be able to turn it a c...

If you have 52 inches, you can slip it through, pads for backhoeextend a couple inches past tires, track measurement is a little thin.

Re: When is it time to give up your guns?

Cant imagine anything scarier than an unexpected oldtimer placing a revolver against a badguys gutroll.
You just need to adjust tactics to suit abilities.
Never give up.
