    Best 1911 deal around, Springfield Defender

    I sold all my 1911's years ago as I had no use for them. Don't think they are good defensive use guns, they are heavy, and low capacity. That being said, I had a hole in my collection when I sold them all off. Enter the Springfield Armory defender 1911. It's basically their basic milspec model...

    KelTec Sub2000, the new backpack gun

    I have owned a KelTec Sub 2000 for years. I own the very old first gen, 3rd gen Smith and Wesson magazines, model. (Currently has the mag catch to take Sig P226 magazines). I never really warmed up to the first gen model. Probably because the front sight doesn't appear all that durable and is...

    I have a 2017 Pacifica with the 3.6L engine. It calls for 0W20 oil in the manual, and nothing else. My car has been at the dealer for a couple days getting the recall repairs done. They gave me a 2018 Dodge Town & Country 3.6L rental until they finish my car. I checked the oil in the Dodge and...

    Picked up a new Glock 45

    So Glock released the brand new Glock 45 a few days ago. My gun store posted today that they got some in. I went and snatched one up for $539. THIS is the Glock I have been waiting for. I HATE finger grooves. And the 19 slide on the 17 frame, while wierd at first, just makes sense in your hands...

    They just built a new Oreillys auto parts in my town. Been open for a month or two now. Always DEAD, with no cars in the parking lot ever. Like one car in the lot max. Stopped in there today to look around and noticed some pretty expensive pricing. Seems to be more than Autozone and Advance...

    Remington Tac 14 870 with 14 inch barrel

    Just bought one of those Tac 14 Remington 870 with the 14 inch barrel. No NFA paperwork or tax stamp. Pretty cool gun to tinker with. The model I bought comes with a one shot extension from the factory and a stabilizing brace, so has 5+1 instead of the 4+1 of the regular Tac 14. Its the...

    John Deere 30 second easy change oil system

    Was at Home Depot yesterday, looked under the hood of a 100 series John Deere mower. It had the "John Deere Easy Change™ 30-Second Oil Change System" installed, which means you just change the filter every 50 hours. The new filter comes with oil pre-installed, so you just change the oil filter...

    Dash cam - driver stops on highway for birds

    This is dash camera footage I took today. 55 mph highway, a bunch of people behind me, and this idiot comes to a sudden complete panic stop in front of me in the middle of the road to let some birds cross the street. I screeched to a stop, looked in my rear view mirror and saw people swerving...

    2017 Chrysler Pacifica oil change

    I just bought a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, 3.6L. Has anyone done an oil change on one of these? Some forums were talking about an oil filter canister being under the hood, and you change the filter from the top, but I cant for the life of me see something like that at the top of the engine. I...

    Walmart screwed the pooch on tire install

    So shopping for tires last week for my Acura, Walmart has a really good sale on some Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires (the best rated grand touring tire on Tirerack). About $100 plus cheaper than any other retailer I could find. I order them and have them shipped to my local store, which takes a week...

    Fuel storage tip

    When you fill up your gas cans for your small engines, I recommend putting some blue painters tape on the can. Then use a sharpie marker so that you know what type of gas you have in the can (ethanol, non-ethanol, 87 octane, 90 octane, 93 octane etc). I also make a notation that I used Stabil...

Lets keep this respectable and not get locked. If you are one of the ID 10 T folks that breaks one or...
