  2. another WWYD thread....

    About a month ago my son and daughter (17 and 15 respectively) were in my son's car, stopped at a traffic light, when a woman driving a 20 year old SUV slammed into the back of them. One of the first things out of her mouth was, "I checked my brakes before I left, I thought they were fine"...

  4. Beretta 92FS with a Burris Fastfire 3

    My eyes aren't what they used to be and I like fiddling with my guns. Mostly I don't make changes that can't be reversed on my firearms, but since the 92FS is plentiful, I didn't see any harm in having the slide drilled and tapped. I started off by ordering a sight mount from this guy: Sight...
  5. Recommended round for Gold Cup?

    I just picked up a new Colt Gold Cup, my father mentioned that his when he bought it (20 ish years ago) came with different springs for for either regular ball ammo or Semi Wad-Cutter target loads. Well, mine did not come with different springs and the manual wasn't much help (unless I missed...
  6. Red dot, 3 moa vs 6 moa on a handgun

    Hi All, Thinking about getting a red dot like a Vortex Venom or maybe a Burris FastFire for one of my handguns. My initial thought was the smaller dot would provide for better accuracy (assuming I'm up tot the task), but I've been reading that for a handgun you should go with 6 moa vs 3. Do...
  7. suggestions for a gift

    Hi All, I'm Looking to get a knife for a very good friend for his birthday. I've been on ZT's and Benchmade's sites, any reason to get one over the other? I'm not a knife guy, but my friend is. My budget for this gift is up to $300, looking for a good folder for EDC. Spring assisted is...
  8. Ruger Mark II question

    Hi All, I have a Mark II Government Target and I want to put a red-dot optic of some sort on it. It is not drilled for scope mounts so my option is to drift out the rear sight and use that dovetail to put in some sort of mount. I tried doing that in the past, I drifted in a block, then...
  9. when do you sell a firearm?

    I've been struggling with when the 'right' time to sell a firearm is. Not all decisions are a struggle of course, some are easy, like when you have a pistol or rifle that's in or recently out of production and have no love for it. But, what about some of the 'heirloom' pieces in your...
  10. LTC renewal in Hudson

    Hi All, Just wanted to relate my experience renewing my LTC in Hudson, in a nutshell, it was fantastic! My current LTC expires next month, so I picked up the paperwork on March 11th, went home, filled it out and returned to the police station with it. They made an appointment for me to come...

  14. Interesting

    I work in Maynard at 'The Mill' (Clock Tower Place) and occupancy is way down here since Monster vacated last year. Building 5 is nearly completely empty, if not completely empty, I don't know for certain, but it's still a decent walk from where I work in building 4. I like to stretch my legs...
  15. Has anyone had experience selling high-end liquor privately?

    I picked up a high-end bottle of bourbon several years ago and stuck it in my safe with the thought I'd break it out for a very special occasion. Well, 6 years later, I see some crazy valuations on this bottle and if it's worth even 50% of what I saw, I'd like to sell it and buy another gun...
  16. Funny auto-reply

    I work in tech and I send a LOT of emails, especially around this time of year it's very busy for us. I got this as an auto-reply, I wish I lived in this guy's world LOL: “Thank you for your e mail. Your message is very important to me. I check my e mails twice every day at 11am and 4pm on...
  17. LED turn signal drop-ins?

    Hi All, I want to increase the amount of light my turn signals put out and have been thinking about LED replacements for my '1156' (rear) and '1157' (front) lamps. I understand I'll need to install load balancers with these but was curious as to if any of you had experience doing this and if...
  18. B-Square Mounts?

    I have a Ruger Mark II Government Target that is not drilled and tapped for a scope mount. I'd like to keep it as original as possible, or at least only make mods that can be reversed, so I don't want to drill and tap it. I tried mounting a weaver style rail that fit over a post installed in...
  19. Pistol - Grip Technique?

    So.. I understand the 'straight-thumbs' technique is probably the best, but I can't seem to get comfortable with it at all and end up resorting to 'thumb over thumb' technique as described by this article by the end of each of my range sessions...
