    Kia forte GT

    I test drove one shortly after they came out when I was looking for a new around town car. The best way to think of it is as a poor man's Civic Si. It's slightly less refined, slightly poorer handling, slightly poorer steering and transmission feel, and likely a good bit less reliable than...

    What is the single best vehicle to buy if you're a tightwad?

    My 1992 Sentra SER was nearly unkillable during the 15 years I owned it and, to this day, is perhaps the car I have the fondest memories of.

    Purolator moving away from louvers?

    I purchased (at a Central Ohio Menard's location) a Purolator One filter (PL14459) that looks to have been manufactured in Sept. 2023 that has holes in its core as opposed to louvers. Has anyone else noticed this change?

    Limp Wristing My LCP MAX

    That's the silliest thing I've heard in a while. Why would anyone feel the need to actually prove that the earth is flat? And, OP, thanks for the post. Pocket pistols have designs and potential usage scenarios that make them particularly prone to limp wristing. And it being a weak azz .380...

    New Firearms CLP or Lube You Want To Try ?

    I also have used Corrosion-X for years as my primary clp product. I figure that just about any oil would be good enough for lubricating non-machine gun firearms, so I'd go with something that excels at rust prevention. At the end of the day, just about any oil is sufficient for firearm applications.

    Long Term Storage

    Desiccant size?

    Desiccants aren't the ideal tool for containers that are " not air tight" . Something like a small 'golden rod' style of dehumidifier or even a small incandescent light bulb (really anything to raise the temperature inside the box a modest amount) would be my recommendation. If you want to go...

    Walther P22 QD

    The best thing about the Walther P22 is that it isn't a Sig mosquito. If you are interested in doing a good bit of plinking it might pay in the long run to switch to a 22 pistol that will more reliably shoot bulk ammo.
