re: Nano Ceramic vehicle coating - bapple
If you have a dark paint color, I would advise against it. Since the coating is not impervious to polishing, any water spots that are left behind cannot be polished off. My personal vehicle (pearl-colored Yukon) is a decent candidate for it since water spots don't really show. But if I drove somethi...

re: I must be getting soft in my middle age - bapple
I agree with most here. I used to kill something just to kill but have changed to only kill critters that are doing actual damage that affects me. Things I won't ever have sympathy for: Venemous snakes Hogs Any bug inside my house Besides that, unless it's a dillo just wrecking my proper...

re: Top Three Terrible Pieces of Advice Given to Women in Gun Stores ? - bapple
[quote] I have found women have difficulties with compact pistols.[/quote] For sure. The way I see it is that the full sized 9 is the perfect starting point. It may not be easy to rack at first or easy to shoot at first (for a novice) but it gets easier and easier after every manipulation. The...

re: Grip safety on CC gun - bapple
I don't know if the XDs follows the same formula as the full sized XD or compact XD but I can't stand that you cannot retract the slide unless the grip safety is depressed. That is my biggest complaint about the XDm 40 of Chatrabbit's that I reviewed a few years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

[quote]Another thing they say is some women have hard time racking gun[/quote] Yep. And I prove this myth wrong with every woman who comes in my class. I still have yet to find one who can't properly rack a full sized 9, and that includes a wide variety of ages of women. Definitely agree with ...

re: Pocket Knife Engraving - bapple
:lol: The OB always delivers. Great replies. I don’t wanna give it away unless any of my groomsman peruse the OB but they’re nice Spyderco knives. The blades are also coated but I don’t know if that matters to an engraver. I’ll give some of the suggestions a try. Thanks dudes....

Pocket Knife Engraving - bapple
I got in a bunch of groomsman pocket knives and want to get some initials etched on each one. Where’s the best place to go to make this happen? Wedding isn’t until May so I have plenty of time. TIA :cheers:...

re: Groomsman Pocket Knives - bapple
I could possibly do a knife and light combo. I think it all depends on how much everything costs at the end, including the engraving and stuff. But I agree that I use the shite out of my streamlight. ...

re: Groomsman Pocket Knives - bapple
bluemoons, excellent suggestion! This is what I was looking for - a local place that can handle the knives plus the engraving. I may see if they can get me a group buy on some Spyderco knives so I can save a few bucks. 9 times $50-$75 versus $100 per knife is enough savings to matter. I’ll g...

Groomsman Pocket Knives - bapple
Getting married in the spring and I’m curious if anyone has done a group buy from Benchmade or maybe even Spyderco for engraved pocket knives. How much money am I reasonably looking at spending for a party of 9? Any info is appreciated. TIA...

re: Opinions on the Springfield SAINT? - bapple
The SAINT doesn’t really bring anything to the table over any other AR. They even spent time getting a coating on the trigger without actually improving it, aka it’s a mil spec trigger that looks neat. I think the Ruger AR556 and the S&W Sport 2 bring nearly everything the Saint brings but at a ...

re: Bad car battery ?? - bapple
I agree with the others that you likely have too much corrosion on one of your battery terminals. This can prevent your starter from getting enough power to turn the crank. I would also advise having your battery tested at a local auto parts store to truly see if you have a battery issue. [quo...

[quote]I stand by my previous statement. For a woman that does not shoot a lot and is not super gun savvy, a revolver is easiest and quickest to use. No thinking involved.
