    Why doesn't Schaffers oil get more love?

    When you travel to St. Louis, stop at the factory and take a tour! Right near the Arch. I walked around with the founder’s grandson or great grandson (don’t remember). He was in his eighties and rode around on a Cushman scooter. Sharp as a tack, told me about the history of the company, current...

    Subaru Wheel Bearing?

    My Outback had roasted bearings at 55k, and I’ve read of other complaints with similar mileage to mine as well as yours. So, not a surprise if it is wheel bearings you hear. Mine were roaring.

    After cleaning the mag tube, I put 200 rounds of CCI mini-mag through it without a single FTE or FTF. Staggering. I won’t blame ammunition anymore either.

Three or four runs with Hoppe’s cleaned it, but...

    Using Leverage - A somewhat Negative Post

    Mola’, I was all set to type Will Rogers’ reply to “using leverage” for finance - “He who borrows what isn’t hiz’n, pays it back, or goes to prison”. Well your picture sure put that into perspective. Take care.
