re: Coleman Esky 55 qt. Ice Chest - dawg23
That [u]looks[/u] like a much better ice chest than the old Coleman & Igloos that I still use. Please report back on your ice retention test. How much did it cost ?? Does it weigh significantly more than a "conventional" Igloo ? (I'd love to toss about 10 old chests and get 5-6 decent on...

re: Caught the gun bug - question about used guns - dawg23
[quote]Any tips/recommendations for what to look out for when buying used guns? [/quote] 1. I've bought numerous (and sold a few) used firearms on GunBroker. You have to use some "common sense" in looking at the seller's feedback rating. If he's only sold three items, I'd be leery, irrespective...

re: New Beretta Handgun - dawg23
[quote]Meh[/quote] It's still a Model 92, with a slide-mounted safety. It's still big and heavy. The military carries these things as a "last resort" if all their M4's and SAWs run out of ammo - and no artillery or air support is available. It's not well suited for CCW. It's certainly not "b...

re: Ditch bank blades...why do they come so dull? - dawg23
About 15 years ago one of our employees cut his finger while unpacking a new one from the "protective" cardboard wrapping. Stitches were required - was a "recordable" worker comp injury. I'm sure other, similar events occurred and have resulted in the dull versions now being shipped....

I may be in the minority, but I'm with the OP (maybe I'm jaded from living in BR). * Blocked in by irate driver. * Child in vehicle. * Hand on gun, JIC. * Didn't draw down. Don't see anything wrong with his reaction. Glad everyone made it home safely....

re: Help me pick mine and the GF's new carry guns - dawg23
Tiny guns usually have stiffer springs than full size guns - to help tame the recoil. When you add in the fact that small guns offer less gripping surface, it's very common for slides on baby 9mm, .40 & .45's to be very hard to rack. ETA: When you add in the fact that many women have less han...

A. Scratch .380's from your list. No matter what else you read or hear, the 9mm is not just a little better, it's a [u]lot[/u] better (more effective) at stopping bad guys. B. There are a lot of good reasons to get both guns with the same operating controls/manual of arms. Mixing guns with manua...
