Re: Cold enuff for you?

Thermometers are for chumps. It's January in Northern Michigan. Nothing new. Having said that, I must admit: wearing flip flops to go outside to start my jeep was not one of my smarter moves. You and another friend who lives in Baudette MN should get together and swap stories. LOL See who has the b...

Cold enuff for you?

This morning here in western Ohio it was -13 degrees Fahrenheit. Not the most coldest I have experienced, that honor would have to go back to 1978 when the Ohio River and Niagara Falls both froze over that winter. Back then it got down to -26 or so. Just curious what has been the coldest weather you...

Re: What have I done wrong?

Smokey is correct. You need to change your settings in the User Control Panel, subsection Managing Subscriptions. Any settings you had from previous SRF forum are gone and you need to customize this version to satisfy your particular needs.

"so consider yourself a lucky fellow" - 72 USMC

Heh I guess I can. Read a story on line this morning, I think happened in Sacramento. Amazon delivery driver left the package on the front porch and a little something else in the front yard. Homeowner's video security system caught it.

Gripe about package delivery services

Back in September I bought a new pistol and part of the deal was that I would receive a couple of additional magazines, and some ammunition as part of the deal, For the price I paid for the pistol it was a sweetheart of a deal. Finally I guess they thought I waited long enough and shipped the mags a...

Re: What a Waste........oil stove,that is.

Rob, Youtube is full of designs for waste oil stoves. Look on youtube for videos on designs for them and another stove design called a rocket stove. Rocket stoves are the oil burners on steroids. One video shows the flame vortex created by the burning oil and the in rush of outside air. Just plain a...

Re: Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

Anyway I have shot many a reloads through mine with out the first hiccup. I certainly can't complain about accuracy. One of my favorite 9mms to shoot. If you can find one...

Once you hit a certain post count you are given automatic access to the classifieds. Pretty much the same rules as there were in place on the other revisions of SRF.

Re: Whats in your range bag?

First thing on my agenda this morning is head to Wally's place and pick up one. May add some other gear to it. Something you never think will happen. You read about it on line and then it happens when you are there. Makes you more concerned about range safety more then ever. Last night I kept going ...

Whats in your range bag?

Every one has a first aid kit as part of their range bag, correct? None of us today at the range did and we had a shooter catch a ricochet off of the pistol range which got him while he was shooting on the rifle range 30 yds away. He wasn't hurt seriously, but it did bleed a lot. The ricochet caught...

One of my favorite pistols to shoot. Love how accurate the pistol is. I shoot best with it using 124 grain or heavier bullets. For being a commander sized pistol is darn accurate.
