re: question about school gun free zones - bapple
Again that is just a guess but private property is private property so they can decide their policy. ...

re: question about school gun free zones - bapple
There is a grey area with this though. It's legal to have it entirely contained in your car on school property. But it most likely is a breach of school policy. If the school wanted to, upon finding out about your firearm they could expel your kid and restrict your access to school property. ...

re: Colt M4 22 LR - bapple
The barrel of a standard AR does not have the proper twist rate for 22lr. I have a CMMG conversion bolt and it's actually very reliable. But the optics are very low at close range and very inaccurate at long range. I'd love to see the bullet leave the barrel on a high speed camera to see how uns...

Not to be a stickler, but your house was not robbed - it was burglarized. Robbery requires force and burglary does not. Sorry about losing all your shite though. ...

re: Tough lesson on the importance of being attentive - bapple
[quote]and we still have people arguing over the safety on a Glock. [/quote] One thing that grinds my gears is that the anti-gun lobby has basically tried to steal the term "gun safety" like it has something to do with policy. Not related to your response but a nice pedestal to vent/bitch f...

re: Silverado/Sierra downshift/engine braking? - bapple
[quote]I'd laugh to no end if it's fixed with a swap in fluid. Clames said not to do that. [/quote] Modern transmissions have much tighter components than older ones. I've heard from numerous people to leave the system closed and not do a fluid swap because it lessens the life considerably. ...

re: About how much am I looking at for front/rear brakes on a '11 Sierra - bapple
[quote] I've put 130k miles on truck and they're telling me that discs in the front look better than drums in the back. I've never had either changed. [/quote] My brother's truck was making tons of noise and he thought it was the front pads. It ended up being his rear drums. When I took the drums...

Ah. Didn't realize you meant it was a new gen GM truck. I haven't done much driving on those to feel the difference but I do know they shift differently. I rescind my statement....

[quote] I'm sure I can google it, but how much different is it?[/quote] It's considerably different. My brother had a 2008 Silverado with drums in the back and it took me a good bit more time to get them swapped. But all I used was a YouTube video as a guide. EDIT: I also have the Hayne's Manu...

re: About how much am I looking at for front/rear brakes on a '11 Sierra - bapple
Look on Amazon for AC Delco rotors, pads, drums, and shoes - exact same equipment for considerably less. And just install them yourself. EDIT: With the price of a brand new set of rotors, it makes little sense to get them turned anymore. If you're doing the work yourself, your car is inoperable a...

re: Silverado/Sierra downshift/engine braking? - bapple
Your transmission may have an aftermarket tune on it. I had a lifter collapse on a DOD cylinder (displacement-on-demand, aka 4 cylinder mode) a few weeks ago. I had about a quarter inch gap between the top of the pushrod and the rocker arm. When I replaced all the lifters on the left side, I got ...

[quote]VERY important: You're more than welcome to point her a good direction w/ her purchase, but the final choice needs to be HERS, not YOURS. Otherwise, chances are she'll never like your choice as well as she needs to. [/quote] Another important point I forgot to mention! :cheers:...

re: Update on my Mom's nightstand gun thread from a while back. - bapple
[quote]She is not going to want a big heavy gun. [/quote] So she'd rather a tiny sub 38 that may break her wrists and her "frail" hand bones every time she shoots it? A new shooter is a new shooter, it doesn't matter the age. No one likes tons of recoil. You'll never find me at the range putti...

[quote]IMO it's laughable to suggest a .357 or bigger gun or round for a 64 year old lady with little to no gun experience. Get her a .38 or .22 revolver.[/quote] Why? 357 magnum is simply a longer, higher pressure 38 special. A gun chambered in 357 magnum also has the added benefit of being able...
