Re: I had a wreck two days ago, disscussion of new vehicle/a

We've got two Ford Escapes (`05 and `06 IIRC, and my last 3 vehicles were all Chrysler products, so I'm not a 'Ford guy'...) Both have AWD, fold down rear seat for larger cargo area, and I've added a trailer hitch to mine... MPG on mine seems to run around 20 or so (not great, not horrid), and we're...

Re: Debating between Beretta 92 and Taurus PT92

So, I bought a Taurus PT92 when I was 21. I'm now 37. When I pull the trigger, it goes bang, and the round goes where I aimed it. It fits my hand well. Now, I do have to say, I had an issue about 6-7 years ago with the shell extractor. At this time I'd probably put a few thousand rounds through it (...

Re: Teach me about 80% lower receivers (No FFL Required)

I don't want to sound like a troll here, but I have to ask, if something is LEGAL (which this is) why would you even use the words 'condone' or 'condemn'?

That's like saying you don't 'condone or condemn' people who build a car from scratch.
