  1. I have a Remington Nylon 66 that will shoot anything I feed it and a 10/22 tackdriver. Really like the mini mags in the 10/22.
  2. $3.69 at the Shell station, diesel was $3.89.

    The fans got it brought back for a partial second season so they could get the closure in there, hence the quick wrap up.
  6. Just found your site tonight, like what I've seen so far.

    Diesel: Is it really important for a BOV to run on it?

    NP- For true bio-diesel you really don't need a conversion, just to upgrade the fuel lines from rubber to B-D compatible synthetic ones. Most of the conversions I have researched just add a revised or secondary fuel delivery system with a heater in order to run WVO, you can still run diesel in the primary system.

    Protest what ? You're under arrest...

    Horrible yes, I cannot believe this will stand up to scrutiny by the Supreme Court.

    Catfish, if you like the 5.7x28, you need to check out the AR-57. I'm a little biased since it was a family member who designed it but if you want to pack a LOT of punch into an AR platform and still keep it somewhat compact this may be the way to go. http://www.57center.com/ the ammo is also used in the FN Five SeveN pistol and there are up to 20 rd mags available

    Good points Captain but we all have our favorites. From some of your posts I'm guessing you are Harris County. Kind of surprised about the preference for the 20 over the 12 with all the duck and goose hunting that goes on there.

    Fingers crossed for Dallas/Ft. Worth area, they got hit hard by the last one.

    S&W and Taurus I think make wheel guns that shoot .45 Colt and ACP with moon clips.

    Schoeny, you bring up a good point .357 Sig is a necked down .40. Additionally, something I found out when researching a concealed carry gun for my wife, while you can change calibers with only a barrel change, it is highly recommended that you start with a pistol designed for the .357 and go to .40 and not the inverse. The Glock 31, 32, 33 are built to handle the higher chamber pressures of the .357 round, the G22, 23, 27 and 35 are built for the .40 and have had failures when converted to .357.

    He was quite the character, saw more of him than I ever wanted when he wore the thong...gives credence to "...what has been seen, cannot be unseen..."

    Ahhh, a local...the trick to credibility is to site your sources: http://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2003-03-14/149293/ It so much funnier because it's true

    I'll risk the big head jokes, 7 and 1/2. Snake, you can have the scooters, I like the feel of steel around me...plus, lots more places to hide/mount stuff. 101matt, mine are all civilian models, working on getting some M1009's and M1028's for parts and to build a couple to run on bio diesel. But, IMHO, a diesel K5/K10 is the way to go for a BOV, will carry, tow, haul everything you need (not quickly), the parts are EVERYWHERE, and cheap. Plus, there is so much commonality for all models from 73 to 91 that if you can't find the exact part you can usually make something work. Check out 100dollarman.com or any of the gov't auction sites, you can usually find a sale in your area but be ready to turn a wrench and pay for transport. In the end they're worth it because they are more robust than the civilian models and easier to convert to a 12v system than a deuce or HMMWV.

    What are the schools of thought here? What I mean is there a dominate philosophy regarding sheltering in place (which for purposes of this discussion could also mean at your BOL) or surviving on the move? It seems to me that would dictate my choices when it came to firearms as much as anything.

    VisV, I live on the cusp of the Peoples Republic of Travis County where a homeless cross-dresser got 4% of the vote in the last Mayoral election...surprise me if you can

    Hi VisV, Thanks. Just read through your intro, you made quite a splash (not judging, just an observation). I've been trying to go through as many member profiles as I can, because like you, I am not interested in white supremacy, tin-foil hat types, or militia men. Fortunately, this does not look like that kind of place. I am hoping I can learn new ideas and contribute a few of my own.

    Thanks VIS, Flying the Jeep flag for now, but I'm a 4x4 fanatic. In addition to the Wrangler I have several K5 Blazer's/Jimmy's that I have collected over the years...guess you could say I'm building a bug out fleet. I'm down for just about anything but I live on common sense (vehicle addiction aside). Things go sideways, it's the only thing that is gonna get you down the road.
