    Made the HAM radio step

    Good luck on earning your Technician Class ticket. You're lucky you don't have to pass Morse code. I had to pass the 13 wpm Morse code back in the days to earn my General Class. After the FCC dropped the 20 wpm requirement, I went and got my Extra class. Now there's no Morse code requirement for...

    What happened to billiard/pool halls?

    There are two pool halls within 4-5 miles of me and a billiards store. Near where I used to live there were a couple of pool halls along with two snooker halls (2/3 of the tables were snooker tables).

    Aw mags

    Accuracy International AT and AW magazines are the same. Double stack, double feed. https://www.eurooptic.com/ai-aw-magazine-308-win.aspx The AI Arctic Warfare was the first to use the double stack double feed magazine. The AI AT, successor, followed suit and used the same magazine.

    Accuracy international

    Like driving a car at the race track. Slamming your foot on the gas pedal and slamming on the brakes end up shifting the balance of the vehicle poorly and can break traction. On the other hand, driving smooth is fast. May not feel as fast, but smooth usually maintains a higher average speed than...

    My friend with a Mini-30 said the same thing. Does not shoot steel cased rounds. That means can't buy cheap steel case 7.62x39 rounds and have to buy the more expensive brass cased stuff. Plus the Mini-30 is very picky about magazines; basically Ruger mags only. Too many cons on the Ruger. If...

    My FedEx experience in 3 pictures

    The "real" FedEx is the one with the purple-and-orange logo. Contractor FedEx is the purple-and-green logo. The "real" FedEx does all the air shipments and some of the ground shipments. FedEx sells routes for certain areas (example: Alaska) and that's when you see the purple-and-green FedEx...
