    Cool pics of cool stuff

    Sirhrmechanics post in to motivational thread got me thinking. These are pictures of the workings of a 4 faced clock for our town square. Rather than putting these in the motivational thread, I thought starting a new thread was a place for any other cool stuff pics.

    Any trip advice for Fl Keys?

    I figured Id take a chance. My wife and I are thinking of trips for next year and thinking of the Keys. We're pretty low key and not much for night life. Good restaurants and small crowds would be ideal. Fishing, snorkeling and maybe diving would be awesome. We're open on when to go as well...

    Any good call blockers for samsung android?

    Would you do this in a firearms class?

    I recently attended a "professional" law enforcement advanced pistol instructor course. The instructor had us clear and use dummy rounds and barrel devices. Once we checked and double checked each other's guns and mags, we dry fired at each other. Including malfunction drills going head to...

    Need suggestions for working pocket knife

    Im sick of knives that just aren't tough. I bought a brand new Case Muskrat today. As I was cutting simple cardboard, I could see the blade flexing and bending (but did stay straight). Does anyone have a suggestion for a Stockman size folder for a pocket that can withstand a little work...

    Kestrel 2700 vs 5700

    Im considering the new 2700. From the description on the website, it has the Link app and applied ballistics. Ive never used one and Im not sure I need all of the festures of the 5700. Most of my shooting will be less than 500 yards with one rifle. There is the possibility of hunting rifles...

    Looking for source for targets

    I tried searching but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know where I can get these headshot targets in the picture? I tried the site listed on them and nothing comes up. Im happy to buy a disc or paper. If I cant find a source, I'll copy these but I'd rather have clean targets. PM if...

    Low impacts in low light (update)

    Short version. Ive got a good zero at 100 yards at my States Sniper School. Ive passed 7-8 quals up to tonight. We did a night shoot. One qual couse (passed) 16 rounds on 4 targets total (all impacted about 1/2" low) and then another qual. I failed the last one because 3 rounds were 2"-3"...

    Tacoma FD, very funny

    I watched the first episode of Tacoma FD tonight. I laughed my ass off. Its a couple of the Broken Lizard guys from Super Troopers, Beer Fest and others. Highlights from the first episode were: I guy tearing his office up looking for shrimp hidden inside it. A kid hiding in a pipe to get...

    Looking for an Emerson Coin

    I figured I'd give this a shot here. Im a huge fan of Emerson knives and love his pirate logo. I missed out being able to get one of the Emerson "pieces of eight" challenge coins with that pirate on it. If by some slim chance anyone here has one they'd be willing to part with, I'd be very...

    Looking for AR 15 rail suggestions

    I'm starting to look for a set of rails for my AR 15. The only brand I've got any experience with is Surefire two piece that seems to be discontinued. I really liked this set up because it used a set screw to lock the two halves together. Can anyone recommend a brand similar to that? I've...
