  1. I got the Hornady app on my phone awhile ago. At the time, you paid $20 for the app and they would send you the new edition of the manual when it came out. I kind of forgot about it, but this was in the mail today. I was surprised. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I really like the circle dot reticle combination. I have a Sig Romeo4S with the circle/dot on my Tavor X95. The last of my red dot shopping spree has arrived. I have five to mount, three of which are the circle/dot combinations. Vortex is for a Mark IV pistol, Romeo5 is for a 15-22 pistol, Romeo4T is for my 300AAC build, the 507C is for my FNX pistol, and finally the 510C is for my CZ Scorpion.

  3. I remember seeing one in the 90’s at a car show that was a flatbed used to haul a Willy’s MB. Both fully restored. Very cool looking vehicles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I have heard mixed reviews of the AMP steps in the winter. Every factory version retractable step I have heard of, I have seen broken due to being iced up in winter. I think more of a temperature and ice pack problem versus snow. Not sure where you live, but I am in Minnesota. You may be a lot milder and it won’t be an issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This reminds me of one of my cousin’s friends. He was a huge snowmobile guy (literally he was 6’7”). He used to hang air fresheners in front of the exhaust on his snowmobile and let it idle for twenty minutes or so and then hang it in his truck. Not sure how to infuse the hot brass/spent powder smell into an air freshener, but I would buy one if somebody figured it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have been happy with my Sig optics. I have a Romeo1, Romeo4T, and a Romeo5. I am planning on getting another Romeo4T for my 300 pistol build. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Both my father and my maternal grandfather had similar saws, albeit the smaller motor (unsure if 3/4, 1, or 1.5hp). My grandfathers is a 1950’s version and my fathers is from the 70’s. The 50’s era saw has sat dormant for about a decade since my grandfather passed, but my dad still uses his. Both saws have contributed to some beautiful work over the years. I took a different path and worked through Craftsman’s, Powermatics, and currently a SawStop. My father always used Johnson’s paste wax on his tools. I use Boeshield and occasionally paste wax. I never think of bee’s wax, but it makes sense. I hope you enjoy the saw! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Have you looked into air bags for the rear? I have slowly started looking at new trucks and have several friends who run airbags in their half-tons to level the truck once their boat is hooked up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s not unheard of to have ice on the lakes in May that far north (they ice fish Lake of the Woods well into April). Ely is a fair bit north of me (250 miles or so), but absolutely beautiful country. When I was young, we would canoe into the boundary waters and I have a friend from high school who is a fishing guide out of Ely. But yeah, you just accept the fact that the air will hurt your face for a good portion of the year. On the plus side it’s only bears and wolves none of the little poisonous bugs or snakes to worry about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It seems everyone I know who has moved away loses their tolerance for the cold rather quickly. I was happy to be able to just wear a sweatshirt today while working with my daughters at an outdoor Girl Scout cookie booth for a couple of hours (19 degrees). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. update: I did receive this order. On their own accord, UPS took the liberty of changing the address on the shipping label. They sent it to my old address from 5 years ago and somehow listed my Dad's phone number from ten years ago. Nobody I spoke with could give me an answer to any of it. Luckily the people who bought my old house asked my old neighbor for my phone number and texted me about the package. I went and picked it up. I did let AR15Discounts know about everything and they had already issued me a refund. They re-billed me less 10% for the trouble. Just a weird situation. @GLShooter you were correct that the 9" hand guard would not work. Griffen makes an 8.6" handguard to go with this barrel which puts the shoulder of the muzzle threads exactly at the end of the hand guard (of course out of stock). Since I have larger than average mitts, I am going to look for something in the 8" range so I can get to the suppressor a little easier and have room to get a strap wrench to the suppressor's cam lock should things get stuck.
  13. Looks kind of like an L Series International (I don’t know, not familiar). I would make room in the garage for that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have added 4 firearms to the safe so far this year, two of which are new calibers to me. My 300AAC build has been a disastrous PIA so that is getting kicked to the back burner for awhile. The other new caliber is 45ACP. I have been looking for a die set for awhile without much luck other than the overpriced gunbroker and ebay auctions. I stopped in to the reloading store on the other side of town and they had just gotten their Redding shipment in from last fall. He advised me against buying the Redding die set they had (sizer, expander, seat/crimp) and advised I find a Pro Series that had the separate crimp since I am running a progressive. I was reluctant to leave without grabbing what was in stock, but I figured it was better to let the gun sit awhile instead of spending money on a less than ideal die set. As luck would have it I found a Pro Series on line and it should be here next week. I had been keeping an eye on projectiles and knew Xtreme had 230 grain round nose in stock. This morning I noticed that Cabela's listed them in stock as well for $30 cheaper per box. I made a quick call to verify and ordered up two boxes of 500 to be delivered to my local store next week. I am pretty happy with how this week has turned out so far. Now if the temperature would warm up just a bit (preferably above zero) I can get to the range and test out the 38 Special and .357 Magnum test loads I have waiting. More than likely I will have the 45ACP ladders ready before I get to go.
  15. They did offer to resend the order when/if they got another barrel in stock. They said they show an order for the barrels, but no ETA. I chose to refund versus waiting an unknown amount of months. And yes, somebody got a free barrel and some gas blocks if they figure out what they are. I am going to watch the local armslist and ginbroker for the heck of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
