  1. 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.

    I believe in starting them young. I started my daughter when she was 11.






    The oldest girl - this was her fifth birthday.




    And the younger girl - the blonde - in that picture with the pistol and her daddy she's four.

    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.

    I had one of them. Bought it to fund my retirement. Bought it, put it in the safe, leave it alone. Unfired new in box it will be worth a fortune.


    Several years after I bought it I checked the going price. It was worth $5 more than what I had paid for it.


    So I gave it to my daughter. I get more fun out of this





    than I ever did out of having it in the safe.

    That's awesome!  If one of my kids or grandkids showed any desire in shooting, i'd unbox mine.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Man alive. How long do you let that set before it's safe to eat?


    Four and a half cups of sugar. Four and a half cups of Karo syrup. 13 ounces of chocolate chips. 1 hour at 350°. My lord, that ought to be lava. And it's got that pecan crust on top of it to hold the heat in.


    Your tongue did not burn off?

    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.

  8. Tried a new recipe Sunday.  Chocolate Pecan Cobbler.  Got it from a Youtube channel called "Meat Church".  


    It was awesomely good hot with Blue Bell home made vanilla ice cream, but even better cold the next morning.
