re: What's a good first gun to buy for home security? - bapple
Do you live near Baton Rouge? I’m an instructor and offer lessons (concealed carry and basic handgun shooting). If you don’t live near BR I’d go to your nearest gun range and pay to learn the basics before buying a firearm. Getting good instruction early on is very important since bad habits are...

re: 2014 F150 Blinker Issue - bapple
[quote]Agreed. I just put LED in my 18 f150 xlt and they are much brighter and should last the life of the truck. [/quote] Did you get the factory LED tail lights or did you drop in LED bulbs? I'd be surprised if you didn't get a hyperflashing issue with drop-in ones....

re: 2014 F150 Blinker Issue - bapple
Bulb filaments are pretty brittle so it may act a bit erratic before shitting the bed entirely. Luckily more manufacturers are moving to LED tail lights and side markers....

re: Any suggestions on a tactical flashlight? - bapple
If your rifle will be a home defense rifle with a red dot, I'd also steer you to consider putting a green light on your gun. The green can be very disorienting for your target and provides a perfect contrast for your red dot sight. I have one on my personal home defense AR. This may not be the same ...

re: Buffing a boat - bapple
First find out if your buffer is a rotary or dual action. Rotary buffers can easily cut through clear coat since they only rotate and don’t oscillate. A dual action rotates and oscillates and has a much lesser chance of burning clear coat. I’d use a medium grade Meguiar’s polish from an auto sto...

re: 40mm or 50mm objective lens? - bapple
My dad, a lifelong deer hunter, has never mounted a 50mm scope or larger on any of his rifles. Besides the extra weight, you have to use higher rings and risk having to use a cheek riser to be able to look through the optic. I rather a slim-and-trim 40mm objective from a quality manufacturer. I ...

re: Biometric gunsafe suggestion? - bapple
[quote]So a key code safe is a better choice? Any recommendations? [/quote] These ones from Gun Vault are better, in my opinion. They have a combination code with a key override. Not sure on the lifespan of the batteries but keep an eye on them and it should be fine. https://www.amazon.com/Gu...

re: Building vs buying an AR - bapple
The upside of building is that you get everything you want without wasting money throwing stuff away. I made an AR15 buyer's guide video series a while back. It may seem lengthy but for the amount of money you're gonna spend, it will greatly benefit you to watch them all: [link=(https://www.yo...

re: Sig's new carry gun - P365 Nitron Micro Compact - bapple
[quote] Regardless of what you think of looks, 10+1 in a true 1 inch width compact w/ what I assume will be the same trigger as the P320 is intriguing.[/quote] I was thinking this was a competitor to the other double stack compacts out there and that's not really anything new. But if it's the sam...

re: Walther PPS M2 - bapple
If it's anything like the full sized PPQ it's likely a winner. My only complaint with that gun was the factory sights suck but that's an easy swap. And I also wasn't looking at their factory night sights either....
