re: Can't decide which 22 pistol to host a suppressor. - bapple
[quote]Guessing both of y’all have the mkIII? I held out because of that reason. The mkIV is easy to brake apart[/quote] Thank God Ruger stepped up and figured out how to make breakdown easier. Those older models will make you want to rip your hair out. ...

re: Best glue to mount a phone holder to dash - bapple
You could also go with some high temperature RTV silicone for engine blocks. I’ve used the stuff with tons of different applications and it is extremely tough when cured. [img]https://media.autobarn.com.au/media/catalog/product/cache/2/small_image/500x500/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/8/1/811...

re: Best glue to mount a phone holder to dash - bapple
+1 for Velcro. Surprisingly the extra give will prevent it from pulling too hard on the glue. But it will eventually melt because Louisiana heat. It’s inevitable but can at least be slowed down. For a permanent solution you could pull your dash up and bolt it down but that’s considerably more wo...

I like the smooth lines of the 22/45 Lite with a small can on it. Plus it comes perfect from the factory if you wish to put a reflex sight on it. [img]http://www.downrange.tv/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Ruger22-45Lite.jpg[/img] If you’re going for cost savings, the M&P22 or the SR22 would...

re: Taurus is moving their HQ out of the slums of Miami, FL - bapple
[quote]I know their revolvers are good. [/quote] Eh, this may be debatable. Granted it’s only anecdotal evidence, but I’ve personally seen two Taurus revolvers render themselves inoperable and lock up. I’ve not seen that from another brand in regards to revolvers. This doesn’t necessarily rel...

re: OB mechanic opinions. - bapple
I’ve actually measured mine and the life gets below 10% right around 10k miles. Maybe my software is newer than yours or maybe it actually uses engine data to calculate the oil quality. But I wrote down the mileage I reset it at 100% and then checked when it was at 10% and it was right below 10k. ...

re: OB mechanic opinions. - bapple
I was skeptical about Mobil 1’s 15k mile claim for their extended performance oil until I saw this lab sheet from a fellow OB’er: [img]https://i.imgur.com/NZ5EnpC.jpg[/img] A Sierra with a 5.3 and over 100k miles on 12k mile intervals... and the lab says it can do 14k. Personally I follow w...

re: Dick's goes full retard.....will destroy "assault rifles" - bapple
Social justice doesn’t pay. It’s becoming one of the worst business tactics in modern day. Does Dick’s stance affect my life at all? Not really and I barely shopped there anyway. But this gives me plenty reason to not shop there and watch their business die. ...

re: Apple Stands Firm Amid Pressure To Remove NRA TV - bapple
That is quite surprising. They may also see that making such a stance is a smart business decision. I don’t really have a problem with that either though. ...

What’s your definition of “tack driver?” I would think most high quality sub-MOA ARs could be considered tack drivers. ...

re: Mini 14 - bapple
Never knew such a thing existed. Interesting. I’m with a few others here and think you’d be better served with a Ruger AR556. It’ll be lighter, easier to mount optics, and will have better accuracy. But if you just want a Mini for the cool factor, I’m all onboard for that. ...

re: Teachers now bringing mini bats to a gunfight. - bapple
Completely agree with tiger. Rather than wildly slinging around a small bat I’d rather the teacher precisely deliver a small chunk of metal to the vitals. And also completely agree with him that it should be voluntary. ...

re: Sig P365 Review - bapple
Good first take. The grip on the Sig appears to be wider in the second pic. Not by much but still looks like it's wider. Have you compared the magazine side-by-side with a Shield mag as well? Hopefully Sig just set the benchmark that other companies will now chase. Competition always leads ...

re: Teachers now bringing mini bats to a gunfight. - bapple
Let's hope we don't follow in the UK's footsteps and call legislators to pass bat control. Gotta have a baseball permit for a bat! But seriously, the logic is confusing to me. So you're telling me these teachers would be willing to bludgeon a kid to death with a bat but aren't comfortable using a...

re: From OT: Chevrolet to start production of Bison Overland truck - bapple
If Ford cornered the off-road performance full sized truck segment, then maybe GM can capitalize on the off-road performance midsize truck segment. May end up flopping but I respect the effort. If the raptor is any proof, people may buy the hell out of this truck. ...
