    Interested in Reloading

    I've recently acquired my second .40 S&W handgun (A Glock 23 and an FNX-40 for those of you who are interested) and after shooting this morning my ammo case has seen a more serious hurting than ever before. I've flirted around with the idea of reloading before, but at this point I'm more...

    Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache..

    Re: Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache. The better interest I was referring to was if you couldn't meet all the fine print. If you fail to meet one of those requirements, the interest rate drops to 0.15% I believe. They don't charge me for debit...

    Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache..

    Re: Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache. Beacon Credit Union, it's local-ish, but offers 5% APY. That is with a handful of stipulations, though. To summarize the fine print, the 5% interest is earned only on balances between $300 and $2500, all...

    Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache..

    Re: Credit Cards - What is the best? Looking to get some rewards without a headache. One thing that I've always done with credit cards is to never buy anything that I couldn't pay for cash - right then. I have no credit cards right now, just store cards which stay locked in my safe for the...

    Double Barrelled Handgun

    So basically, if I'm looking at this right, both triggers must be pulled simultaneously in order to fire both rounds. Seems like a lot of room for error. Not something I want in a firearm.

    Why are there two triggers?

    10mm or .40

    I chose a .40 just because it is an easier round to obtain (and in my area, cheaper). From a ballistics standpoint, I've heard arguments for either being better or worse than the other, so I can't really help there. One thing worth considering, I now a .357 barrel is available for purchase for...

    What is the best IWB holster

    I had a CrossBreed for my Ruger and loved it, probably getting another one for my Glock. It was very comfortable, kept the gun in place, was easy to draw and easy to reholster, and stayed in place. http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/

    The (old) Official Gun Thread.

    Re: The Official Gun Thread. Yeah, I ended up passing on that. I decided to get a new handgun instead. Sold my Ruger and picked up a Glock 23. I've been pleased so far. The laser isn't sited in - it's actually way off, but I'm working on that. In the mean time, it shoots great and has night...

    The (old) Official Gun Thread.

    Re: The Official Gun Thread. Been a while since I've been here. I see you're staying busy, jdub. :P new build looks good. My brother in law is actually selling his AR and I'm contemplating seeing if I can't sell my Ruger and pick it up, but thought I'd get some input, details below: Eye...

    Finally got a 4Runner

    Hey SM, been a while. I doubt if anyone here really remembers, but if you scroll through my thread history you'd probably find a bunch of "Other car" threads where I intended to buy a piece of junk and build from it. Well, up until now I've been full of hot air. I've always like the third...

    call of duty black ops pc

    I disagree. While not all pirates are looking to just get the game for free, I definitely wouldn't claim that the majority of them have a benevolent agenda. Demos and more affordable games would certainly contribute, a LOT, but I still think there would be a lot out there. Like GrimJack said...

    Computer Help!

    I tried using the wudi installer on both 10.10 and 10.04 but it keeps telling me that it's missing disks 2-6. Very strange, I can take screenshots if it'll help describe the situation. As for the the network card, yes it is on board, and yes it showed in device manager. Odder still, I moved the...

    Happy Birthday Theresa! :)

    Time is relative, that means we don't all age at the same time, which makes you as old as you feel/look, whether it's 18 or 23. :P (If Einstein were alive today, think he'd smack me?) Happy birthday!

    Car shopping on craigslist(someone confirm my suspicion)

    I doubt this is the case, but there are cases where you can't invite people to your place of employment so you can sell a car, have lunch, etc. The local Babcock & Wilcox comes to mind. Still, if it feels sketch to you, I say don't do it. There's a chance that even if everything went smoothly...

    BHG 4runner Edit: 96 Cherokee

    Nothing like that around here. The cheapest XJ I've been able to find is $1500 for an auto 94. I may have found the only shortage of Cherokees in America, or it may just be that people aren't willing to part with them due to the reliability. Either way, fixing this one up is my cheapest option...

    The (old) Official Gun Thread.

    Re: The Official Gun Thread. Sorry, I should have been more clear. I made that statement under the assumption that they applied the fix before they released the rifle. With your post in mind, I really don't know the timeline of the rifle - when it was designed, when it began production, and...

    BHG 4runner Edit: 96 Cherokee

    Went to look at the jeep this morning, pictures as promised. He does have the fender flair messing in pic 3 and the wheel missing in pic 4. It looks like to get it to pass inspection, it'll need a new long block, headlights, 4 tires and little doo-dads here and there like fixing...

    SupraMania: What Do Yo Do? Who Are You In Life?
