  1. Can of cream of mushroom soup, a couple of onions, three pounds of venison roast, a slow cooker and 6 hours on low heat. Be prepared to eat too much.
  2. Spraying ether into a throttle body on the wife's camaro a few years ago confirmed that the in the tank fuel pump had went out. The car would start and run for a few seconds, indicating it was a fuel delivery issue that kept it from running. $400 later, the issue was resolved. $75 for the fuel pump, $325 to drop the fuel tank and replace it.
  3. Clothes. I need to give about half of what I have to a thrift store now.
  4. Both of mine started around 6 years old. The daughter quit being interested when she discovered boys. The son quit when he got a drivers license. Neither one has shown any interest since. I do have a couple of grandsons who may be interested. But they both live 2500 miles away.
  5. That's awesome! If one of my kids or grandkids showed any desire in shooting, i'd unbox mine.
  6. I have a 1953 Colt Police Positive that is new in box, unfired. I've had it about 25 years. I have a Ruger 50th Anniversary 22 pistol new in box, unfired. I have multiple copies of similar guns to both of them. Other than that, a lot of my guns are in danger of being traded if they don't get shot in 12 months or so. Very few of them ever reach that status.
  7. I have two 1911s with adjustable sights. A Colt Gold Cup and a Springfield Armory Loaded. After taking them out of the box, and setting them where I wanted the rounds to hit, I have never adjusted the sights again. I've had the Gold Cup over 25 years, and the Springfield about 12 or so. I have about 17 other 1911s that are pretty much stock, with a couple of exceptions. I have replaced front sights on several with fiber optics. Most notably, a Springfield EMP. Dang thing always shot low, so I measured the front sight and found out it was way too high. Ordered a Dawson Precision that was the appropriate height, and it's been an awesome shooter ever since.
  8. The three big names are Wilson Combat, Tripp Research and Chip McCormick. For Wild Bunch, they need to be the flat bottomed mags, without the bumper pad (except a leather one that can't exceed 1/4" in thickness). I've found that the Wilson 7 round flat bottom mags work great. https://wilsoncombat.com/magazine-1911-45-acp-full-size-7-round-920-series-black-oxide-finish.html They're in stock, and under $17 each.
  9. Iron sights only. Fixed sights on most of them. The ones that come with night sights stay as is until the sight fades out (usually about 8-10 years), then I replace them with fiber optic front sights.
  10. It was a top seller when I managed a gun store. Never had anyone complain about them.
  11. Consecutive serial numbers seem most desired by people who typically buy two identical guns, like us silly CAS shooters.
  12. I can name two that have become millionaires, mostly from Youtube channels. April Wilkerson and Derek Bieri. Quite sure there are considerably more.
  13. Fur babies are family. I'm very sorry for your loss, grateful for your compassion, and have been in your shoes more than once.
  14. Deepest condolences to friends and family, and prayers offered.
  15. Went by the local H-D dealership to pick up a couple of HOG tee shirts Sunday. They had this on the floor, and now I've got an urge that I need to stay away from...2021 Fatboy 114.
  16. It's good to be the King. 2017 HD Road King Classic.
  17. It sat for a little over an hour before we ate it. I was fixing a chicken pot pie that had to be cooked at a higher temp than the cobbler, so I finished the cobbler first. The recipe I copied was 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar and 2 1/2 cups of lite corn syrup. I actually cut that back to 2 cups of each, and on the next making, will cut it back again to 1 1/2 each. That based on the capability of my skillet. The scoop of 'niller ice cream made sure no tongues were burnt in the consuming of said cobbler.
