| Outdoor Board|| Looking For a Pistol to Review (and a potential place to shoot) - bapple on 12/11/14 at 10:37 pm|
Hey dudes. I've been wanting to do this for a while since Hammertime first lent me his PPQ to review a long time ago. I really enjoyed getting a pistol that I had no money tied in and doing a test. Me not having spent money on it gives me a chance to be critical if there's something I don't like. My...

I love a good armed citizen story. The woman behind the counter was not hit and there was blood found at the scene, which leads me to believe she made at least one hit.

My brother's truck has around 130k miles on it now. I'm gonna be changing out the rotors and pads on the front but I'm unsure what exactly I should do for the back. I have never serviced drum brakes so I wonder if I should replace the entire drum or just replace the shoes?
So my question isn't ho...

I rarely post here, if ever. But I have to share what I found recently with the world.
It's always been tricky to learn songs for bass despite the fact that I've played for about 10 years. Learn them by ear on guitar or learn them by ear through a PA with a system blasting. It just got a whole lo...

I can tell my battery is starting to fail because my startups are getting extremely weak. My car is a 2010 Yukon Denali with about 75k on the clock. I'm pretty sure the battery is still factory so for a 4 year old battery, that sounds about right for lifespan.
I could go to Autozone and get a Dur...

I only ever post on the OB but the fact that this wasn't called last night was so unbelievably infuriating that I couldn't stand it. If it's subjective that a facemask is grabbed, I think it becomes OBJECTIVE when the fricker gets ripped off.
While this call did not decide the game, last night was...

| 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'...
