    I paid $203 for 6 spark plugs

    Not only that, but he most definitely paid less for that part then if you went to buy it yourself, plus it was delivered to his door, where you had to drive there. I get the same discount on parts as our transportation department pays, it's like 15 to 20% off. So yeah, I would not be going back.

    I think I can hear my hair growing.

    I don't do coffee, it all taste nasty to me. If I do need a pick me up, I will drink a soda or break out the Scho-Ka-Kola, which is coffee/caffeine infused dark chocolate. That stuff will get you "buzzing" after a couple of pieces. It's been in the German army's combat rations since 1920.

    Homegrown Terror Threats Increasing

    Unfortunately I think it might blowup in a lot of innocent people's faces also. I have said it for years. "What's good for America is bad for the Dimwhitcraps, what's good for the Dimwhitcraps is bad for America." They hate this country, everything about it and what it stands for. Because, it's bad for their totalitarianism agenda, of power.

    Wait–How Many Immigrants Are On Welfare Again?

    I would say 51% is conservative. From what I see it's a lot more than that. Not only that, that they are getting free school lunch (also breakfast, plus snacks, and every Thursday or Friday a sack of food, most of which is trash food)but most don't even eat it. They get food stamps, and then load it into a shiny last model pick up truck or SUV, costing at least twice what my car is worth, all the while I ( we as tax payers pay for it ). I make good money, but I can't afford to eat and live like a lot of them do. Driving nice vehicles, going on vacations. Plus the schools have to have translators, and they aren't cheap, I dated a girl that did that and she made very good money. Plus the strain they put on the rest of the system, and after all that is said, they send a significant amount of money home to Mexico or other central/south America country. So, they don't even contribute cash back into the economy. All the while taking jobs away from Americans and/or lowering wages. It's a lose, lose, lose, lose proposition for us ( the United States of America ).
  5. When it comes to AR 15's, there are a few companies that makes most of the things, dohickies and thingofabobs. There are a hand full of forgers, then a slightly more in number of machining shops that turns forgings into uppers and lower into usable parts. Then there are a few shops that makes BCG's, stamp out lower parts and so on. People hate Anderson Manufacturing, but they are one of the people that machine lowers and uppers for other people, then they started to make them for themselves. ToolCraft make BCG's for alot of other people, they also make them with a ToolCraft name stamped on them. You may be running a ToolCraft BCG in your rifle right now and not know it, as it was made for someone else. At one time (and maybe now) ToolCraft made BCG's for PSA for their premium line. No telling how many other companies they made BCG's for. I just know that they make a quality BCG. I also use PSA premium BCG's also, as they are most likely made by ToolCraft or FN Herstal (which is right down the road). I don't care about the name, just proven quality parts. If it's mil-spec or better, then I'm going with it. If it's a proven part.

  7. First of all, thanks for the heads up. Second of all, you cost me money! Third, ToolCraft BCG's are good to go. They make BCG for the .gov, but slot of other people also. They (ToolCraft) make top quality BCG. I have used them in the past and I will use them in the future. The nitride finished one that I have on my .300 AAC Blackout upper couldn't be better machined and finished.

    Great Sling For Less $$

    Well, after some time on the range so far mine have held up. The quick adjustment loop isn't as smooth as the one on the genuine Magpul sling. The webbing is more flexible on these and tend to roll up a little at times. So far though, I am happy with them. I have used them on my carbines and done weapons transitions, transitions to weak side and they have worked.

    Coolest thing I've seen all week.

    In highschool I had a buddy that had a '64 Willy's wagon and another one with a '48 Willy's Jeepster Overlander. 0-60 in 32 days, but boy they were fun. LoL....

    Need A New Lower?

    LoL, I just watched the "Golden Gun". I have watched the soda can project, the whole thing awhile ago. It's cool that he made these from "scratch", with basically trash.

    Caught the crapper last night on camera

    Spray some mint around. Cover the property line for a few days and that might just keep him away. Racoons don't like mint, so get some mint extract and a little water in a spray bottle and have at it.

    Deadly bus crash in NJ

    He is correct in the seat belts are more likely to cause injury or death, burning to death or drowning. There are far more Schools bus fires then collisions in a year. The video linked to touch on the very strict Federal Standards that a school bus has to be built to. By Federal testing, seat belts do not add to safety, and in the above statement may cause far more harm then good, as in fire evacuation, water rescue. New Jersey is a small minority requiring seat belts. The bus did what it was designed to do. In any other vehicle most if not all would have died. Also the school bus driver made a u turn, I don't know about NJ, but in my state only one circumstance would allow for that, being directed by law enforcement officers with signage and vest.
  13. Well, it's Derby Time in the 'Ville. As such, Louisville, KY. has a huge influx of people. The last two weeks, culminating into the big event of Derby day is a lot of work for these guys. Traffic is a problem in the River City/Derby City as it is, but when Derby rolls around, man it can get nuts! Roads get closed for parades and other events, LMPD is every man on deck. Not only that but other law enforcement officers from the State. What's amazing is they work these long shifts, dealing with a lot, and I do mean a lot of drunk people. Huge traffic and they do it professionally and for the most part a smile on their faces. Yesterday was Oaks day, if you don't know it's almost Derby day in scale of people and traffic. The day before is called ThursDerby as the locals call it. It's a little less, but it's still a big day. Then you have the other events that go for the two weeks before Derby day. Being kicked off by Thunder Over Louisville. A huge fireworks display. Well yesterday I had to get into that mess known as Oaks day. The problem is I was given the wrong information and no pass, well, without the pass, travel in certain areas is impossible. After talking to a couple of LMPD Sargents and a Lt., a call out on their radio I was on my way. Oh, I don't want to leave out the other departments, I was also helped by a State Trooper, KY Nat. Guard MP, and an Oldham County Sheriff's deputy. Plus all of Churchill's Downs personal. As someone that has in the past worked closely with these people as a Special Peace officer I have a perspective of behind the scenes. You can't believe that amount of coordination and planning that goes into this. Now I'm in a different gig, and not involved in the process. I have to say I'm impressed with it none the less. I no longer live in Jefferson county/Louisville. I have moved to a close by county, but Derby Time is big here as well, there is a huge Derby Eve party just down the road from where I live. Limos, large SUVs, exotic cars. These officers helped me, even though they were extremely busy. I thanked them in person, but I wanted to give them a public shout out. Great job guys!

    Tonights Bourbon for the Kentucky Derby

    Well, I always have several Bourbons on hand. Soooooooooo, whatever floats my boat at the time. Right now I have some Wathen's, Four Roses single barrel, Four Roses small batch, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Old Grand Dad 114, W.L.Weller 12 year, Old Forerster (plus their premixed mint julep, which isn't bad at all), Bulliet and Buffalo Trace. Of course Makers Mark ( I have the 46 variety right now ). Bourbon is about all I drink in "spirits", I have a bottle of Rum, Jameson's Irish whiskey, Beefeater 24 gin. Funny thing is I'm not a huge drinker so this stuff last me a long time. I pick up a bottle here and there to try out or when I have a dinner get together. But I do enjoy Bourbon the most, so I'm always trying new to me varieties, but I have old standbys, they are the ones listed that I mostly buy. I have had Blanton's in the past and enjoyed it, I might have to pick up a bottle again, I kinda have "forgotten about it". Oh yeah Derby on! I had to go down into that craziness yesterday for work. Though the traffic was thick, it moved quite well. The LMPD has this pretty much down, the biggest problem with this year they changed the traffic pattern and it threw people off. Derby on!
  15. Oh yeah, let's talk about the dreaded AR 5, or AR 7. Eugene Stoner and crew. They are some evil geniuses. The AR 5, it's sure a deadly assult rifle. Oh, wait a minute, that thing was a bolt action, 5 shot .22 hornet. Well, surely the terrible AR 7, now that had to be really bad news....oh, yikes! It's a take down semiautomatic .22 LR. Oh, I know the AR 17! Yeah, the AR 17 that's more evil, it has to be. It's got a bigger number. That surely means that it's....oh wait, are you telling me that the AR 17 is a 5.5# 2 shot semiautomatic 12ga. Shotgun? Whooooa....yep a shotgun, a 2 shot only autoloading shotgun. So, could it mean that "AR" doesn't stand for "assault rifle", but stands for Armalite Rifle, a division of Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation. "AR" has nothing to do with assult rifle, Armalite, as in lightweight, because it used lightweight aluminum and plastics, with other modern materials to make strong, lightweight, accurate and easy to maintain firearms.
