    04' Mazda Tribute w/ Duratec V6.

    resurrecting this one .. I have a 2006 Mazda 6 with the 3.0L Duratec V6. The car calls for 5W20. Is there anything I can hurt by using 0W30 GC? I have 12 quarts waiting for the next 2 oil changes.

    GC around Pittsburgh, Pa??

    I drive past the AZ in Mckeesport every day. Stopped in today and picked up their last 6 quarts of GC. Must be new stuff, it's M053. I didn't have to dig, it was right up front. After the 6, I started hitting the domestic Syntec.

    GC around Pittsburgh, Pa??

    FOUND IT!! I just bought 6 of the 10 qts of GC at the AZ off the Butler exit on the turnpike. I was up there for fire school and decided to stop on a whim. Sure enough, the first 10 qts on the shelf were GC. Behind that was the domestic stuff. I don't know if it's the green or the gold. I...

    Glock cleaning solution

    Hoppes to clean it and RemOil for lube. Shooting cleaner ammo helps too. I changed from Remington white box to Blazer CCI (actually cheaper when you buy it online). Big difference in the residue left in my gun.

    Glock 32

    My carry piece is a Glock 27 (.40 S&W). I'm a big fan of Glock. Before I bought it, I shot Sigs, Berettas, Springfields, and 1911's, and the Glock came out on top for me. Not to say the others aren't nice guns. I was particularly impressed with the Sig, but I just like the feel of the Glock...

    GC around Pittsburgh, Pa??

    McKeesport doesn't have any. I was just there today after work. I could have saved you the drive out to Latrobe. I checked that one a couple weeks ago. No go. I've yet to find the stuff in the Pittsburgh area. It's all domestic.
