Re: poly undershirts: UA vs. spam vs. Duluth vs. Walmart etc

Hit up your local good will or equivalent, I find those often. Adidas, spam, walmart, other shoe brands, even gi stuff on occasion... at great prices ($2 - $5 usually). I have maybe 10 or 12 I have bought there over the past year.

Re: The Great Dying [Youtube amateur serie]

Eh, music too loud, unnecessary loud clanging and smashing by a guy who should know better, vague allusions meant to point at back story kinda seemed too obvious... Similar to other utube stuff, not in the same class as walking dead, but tastes vary

Re: Today I killed a zombie

I was in a very similar situation a long time ago. Luckily for me, the animal was so weak it was obvious there was no danger, so only putting it out of it's misery was a concern. I did sort of a direct pressure on the carotids (or where I assumed the carotids were), while petting it's head... and it...

Re: Has This Ever Happened to Your AAAs?

Didn't read all posts, so sorry if repeating. Usually when this happens to my stuff, its just the residue and corrosion on the tabs that stop it from working... I usually use fine grit sand paper to clean off the tabs, or if they are hard to reach, scrape with a dental tool... Then maybe apply a tou...

Re: New 45ACP ubercompact pistol, the "Double Tap"

Plus it's not chambered in 45 lc/410, so it's a no-go as a little brother to my judge.

Re: Busted Handle... Suggestions?

I have redone a few, the last was a machete. I made slightly small scales from hardwood, then epoxied/crewed them on, then wrapped in nylon cord (about half dia. of para) 2 layers, thin bodied epoxy between layers except for the last one, so the string is still grippy... A little of the wood sticks ...

A warning in the title of any unfinished fiction would be nice- "WARNING, unfinished, no posts by author in 60 days" or something... Then that would be on my story too... which IS going to get finished damnit! ...I swear!!!

One thing I have recently added to my little workout routines is a small soft weight ball. It's maybe 8" dia and a soft underfilled rubber type, mine is 8lb. You can easily hold it with one hand and throw it back and forth in front of you (chest/biceps)... I try to orbit my head with it as fast as I...

Damn... I'm totally lost on the brace thing... Undead, awesome pistol! But wtf is the "brace" about? If it is specifically to shoot with one hand... why not use two, as you would anytime shooting a pistol, that you want to hit a target with?
