| Outdoor Board|| Changing Hub Assembly (2010 GMC/Chevy) - bapple on 9/29/14 at 4:08 pm|
My Yukon has started to develop a rumble at the passenger front wheel recently. It will only start to get loud at about 50+ mph. I'm suspecting this is an issue with my bearings, which is an entire hub assembly on GM trucks.
I watched a video on it to see how difficult it appears to be. It doesn'...

My Yukon Denali is just about worn through its set of Dueler H/T Alenzas.
I want something aggressive but not overly aggressive to where they are loud and rough. I'm thinking about getting some BFGoodrich Rugged Terrains. They look like the perfect amount of aggressive for me. Or I guess I could...

I did not realize that pistol cases could experience a failure like this, but I didn't manage to find this crack until the round was loaded. Luckily I noticed it when counting my inventory.
This also highlights another advantage of stainless tumbling - with a bright, shiny case, finding this crac...

I'm not a big Sig shooter but I figured you guys may like the single-action-only model. It features no decocker and a similar-to-the-1911 ambi safety:

| Outdoor Board|| New Bapple Video - SR1911CMD Review - bapple on 8/21/14 at 10:59 pm|
I finally got access to a family friend's property to do some shooting. I won't be able to teach any classes there but I would certainly be willing to review some more of the OBs' handguns if you are willing to let me borrow it for a couple days or a week. I have only reviewed Hammertime's Walther P...

Of course most of you reading the thread title wonder why I didn't say pistol. Well for the most part I have a pistol on me, but if I am drinking, working, or at someone's home, I usually don't have a pistol on me.
I stepped out of my truck at a friend's house yesterday. I heard some barking and ...

So as been discussed here, I went to Tactical Response in Camden, TN this weekend. I'll try to make this Bapple-outline-esque but there's no guarantee it'll match up to the caliber of my video outlines since I'll mostly just be rambling. Maybe I'll make a video AAR with some footage or something if ...
