  1. Selling a Car and the Art of Negotiating

    Weak rant, but here it goes. I will start by saying I absolutely despise selling stuff. Especially vehicles under $5k. Because it brings out some of the worst people. Tire kickers, time wasters, and worst of all terrible negotiators. I've had a car for sale for 2 weeks on a few different...
  2. Which Knot is the Knotiest?

    I'm not a knot guy. I've seen people that know 30 different knots off the top of their head and their different uses, which amazes me. What's my best knot for this use: kids boogy board. The handle pulled off. Two strings from the board to attach to. Never have to untie. If you don't have...
  3. Living with someone stationed at Fort Bragg, NC?

    My wife has a 20 year old niece that is not the smartest person I have ever met. She has some mental issues and she has been staying with us on/off for a while and I cannot seem to get honest answers from her about anything. A few weeks ago, she had a guy drive down to us from Ft Bragg, NC. I...
  4. What is it? Hydraulic Single Stage Press? Any Ideas?

    Found this gem for sale. It's too far for me to go grab it, but I message the seller to hopefully explain wtf it's used for. He is selling the press with a motor and hydraulic pump. I can see the arm has an attachment on the end (where the die would normally be). I just can't wrap my head...
  5. What's your favorite .22 LR rifle? (Non semi auto)

    As title says, what model is your favorite overall? And why? Ease of use? Cleaning? Accuracy? Design? Weight? I'm excluding semi because I know everyone loves their 10/22 and M&P 15-22.
  6. P-14 ERA Eddystone Remington Arms Sportserized

    I know how some people feel about sportserized firearms, but this rifle caught my eye as a standout. I feel is was done very well and very aesthetically pleasing. One of my favorite things to do with milsurp firearms is learn the history of them. This rifle has almost no markings, but the ERA &...
  7. AR 10 meets a hot loaded hand load.

    Friend from back home was shooting some reloads from his father and his rifle went boom. Hot load would be the safest bet.
  8. Issues Watching Youtube Videos on NES

    Anyone else seeing this issue? Whenever a youtube video is embedded on NES, I can watch the first five seconds of the video, then the video gets scrambled and the audio is fine. See screenshot. Galaxy S10+ on Chrome.
  9. MA EZ Drive (EZ Pass) Being Silly and Me being Dumb.

    About 2 years ago, my CC on file with EZ pass expired. I decided to not renew it, because this was around the same time that they were starting the pay by plate system. I felt that having the transponder wasn't needed and stopped using it. I had $27 on my transponder account and I just figured...
  10. The stuck case that won. Pride hurt.

    I purchased a Dillon 550 A few weeks ago off of CL. No pictures, price was OK for me to flip it and make a small profit. Seller said he would throw in all of his dies that he had AND would drive to me. DOUBLE EXTRA BONUS! Press looked decent, I could tell it had been sitting for a while, but...
  11. Upgraded to a Champion Wheelybird 2.0

    After years of using a hand thrower, I made an upgrade today to a Champion Wheelybird 2.0 with a wobble attachment. I just learned that the range I have been using has a field for clays. I asked about it and the range officer said yeah, we have a couple machines in the office if you need to use...
  12. That One Time I Hit the Craigslist/Reloading Lottery

    Im going thru some old photos and came across a photo I took when I hit the mother load of reloading supplies on Craigslist. Figured I would share it here as a brag and also to share some wise info that has paid off for me a handful of times. I do a ton of buying on used markets. The best way...
  13. Finished A Pair of Dong Romy G AKs today.

    I swear I started these at least 2 years ago. I think I purchased these kits 6 years ago. To say they have collected dust is an understatement. If you can remember this debacle of me blowing myself up, it was done in the process of making these. Also, yesterday when installing the hammer, the...
  14. 9mm 1911 Ejection Issues. WWYD?

    Wasn't sure if this was a topic for reloading or firearms. I have a Springfield 1911 9mm, I got it years ago used and haven't shot it since I got it. I remember when I originally shot it, that it was a nice shooter and I enjoyed it. Took it out this week and made it 30 rounds before I had to...
  15. Range Day G43, P365, XDS, Shield Comparison

    I had a rare opportunity today to shoot a handful of guns back to back fresh out the box. Its been well over a year since I have been to a range with pistols. Excluding the 50 rounds I shot for my concealed weapons permit proficiency test, I haven't shot a handgun in probably a year and a half...
  16. Military Plane ID? Solved. C 17 Globemaster III

    I know nothing about planes. Can someone ID this plane by the profile? I see them circling my house daily, just want to know a little more about them. Pretty cool seeing them banking around my neighborhood. I'm outside right now, and they must be doing night training, because one has done 3...
  17. Buying land just for the sake of buying land?

    Anyone own land just to own land? With no intent on using it anytime in the near future? Looking around the country, there is some cheap land. I know it's cheap for a reason. Water/resources/proximity to things. But the prices are tempting.
  18. Gun Fighters Inc Kenai Chest Holster

    I purchased a Gun Fighters Inc Kenai chest holster after reading a thread here that recommended it. Positive experience all around. I was a little hesitant at first, $150 on a holster is the most I've ever spent, but said screw it once I priced competitors and what they offered. Placed order...
  19. Everyone likes a "look at the price on old ammo box" thread!

    Sorting an estate of reloading/ammo I recently got. A lot of unopened boxes of ammo. I'm going to shoot the shit out of this $ 0.39 a round 308.
  20. Vietnam War Death Statistics Question

    Maybe one of you guys can help me understand these figures. My Google results are only coming back with total death statistics, vs what I'm looking to learn about. I am currently watching the PBS Documentary The Vietnam War with Ken Burns. As I watch, I like to read about certain topics. I was...
