re: Someone struck by ricochet bullet at Precision - bapple
Whenever you give me a call! I'll spectate but I'm not huge on long distance shooting. I have to hear the gun go bang a whole bunch to really enjoy myself. Going all the way out there to shoot 10 times is less fun :lol:. But again I'll come spectate and chill. ...

re: Someone struck by ricochet bullet at Precision - bapple
Honestly the new design of FRC off Choctaw blows precision away. They contracted action target to come do their range and it is top notch. Just wish it was as close to my house as precision. ...

re: LT vs P rated tires on a 1/2 ton - bapple
Put a set of BFG A/Ts on my Yukon last fall after this: [img]http://i417.photobucket.com/albums/pp257/bigapple828/IMG_3668_zpsmenkabye.jpg[/img] Wasn't texting, eating, doing my makeup, etc. and just somehow got distracted and caught a storm drain. I vowed to never have a flat tire again. T...

re: PSA to anyone doing brake work: Buy the Motive Power Bleeder - bapple
[quote]I don't see how it can be done without something to restrict air past the bleeder threads. [/quote] Well like I said if you seal them with teflon tape it can restrict some of that airflow. Plus having someone force the air out of each piston with a few pedal pushes would be helpful for tha...

re: PSA to anyone doing brake work: Buy the Motive Power Bleeder - bapple
[quote]Ended up having to put pipe dope on the bleeder threads to get it to quit pulling air past them. [/quote] I've heard advice of putting some teflon thread locker on the bleeder valves before putting vacuum on them. But for me, I just did the motive then did the manual two person bleed metho...

re: Smith & Wesson SD9. Any thoughts? - bapple
[quote](a) My shooting has not suffered at ANY distance. (b) Obviously the more rounds per second the less accurate, but again, have not noticed any difference in my shooting between the SD9 and the Glock 17. Not to brag at all but maybe im just a consistent shooter? But then again my wife drill...

re: Best 1911 mags for my kimber full size? - bapple
[quote]Are the WC mags on ebay legit?[/quote] Plastic baseplate, plastic follower, Wilson written on the mag, two big witness windows, etc. As long as it has the proprietary features it should be good to go. But this is my personal favorite: [link=(https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/178343/chip...

[quote]Changing all of my brakes, rotors, and soft lines on my truck now. Guess I'll look into this gizmo. Going to be some serious brake bleeding going on. [/quote] It's worth it if you do vehicle maintenance often. As others have said, you can do the manual bleed method with a bottle to prev...

re: $15K and buying a used FWD/AWD, what would you buy? - bapple
AWD has actually grown on me a lot. Got a 2010 Yukon Denali so it's very different than a Subie but I love the AWD. You rarely have to worry about breaking traction in wet and have the extra control in bad weather. I will say this though - my truck chews through front tires like crazy....

[quote]The mechanism looks like the handle part of a caulking gun.[/quote] Oh! That kind... This is the type of vacuum pump he let me borrow: [img]http://www.mityvac.com/hq_images/MV6835_hr.jpg[/img] It's considerably more expensive and uses compressed air. Those little hand pumps aren't to...

re: PSA to anyone doing brake work: Buy the Motive Power Bleeder - bapple
[quote]Can you buy it locally? I am in need of a brake replacement. Bleeding lines is a pain.[/quote] It is just a brake pad or brake shoe replacement? You don't necessarily have to bleed the lines with fresh fluid to do that, although I would advise it if your fluid is over 2 years old. And i...

PSA to anyone doing brake work: Buy the Motive Power Bleeder - bapple
[img]http://www.uucmotorwerks.com/motive/easy2x.jpg[/img] This thing is a Godsend. I did a master cylinder change on my friend's Silverado before borrowing this tool from a friend - the amount of air in the lines made bleeding it by pumping the brakes impossible. I was so frustrated trying to ...

re: Tundra owners. Need to change my spark plugs. Brand rec? - bapple
[quote]Smaller ones, most OHC V8s are chain driven. [/quote] Have you seen the timing chain on the ecoboost V6 motors? Looks like a damn bike chain :lol:. It's unrelated, I just found it funny. I have a friend who was a Ford Diesel tech and he used to see some of his coworkers fix ecoboost mot...

re: Considering a Lift and big tires on my GMC? Problems? - bapple
[quote] Thinking about getting a 6" lift and 35's.[/quote] If you want it to look good and not be quite as rough on the front end, just get a level with 33s. It'll look aggressive without being insanely expensive and hard on the suspension. And for God's sake, adjust your headlights after the ...
