Re: Revolver in 9mm: S&W or Chiappa?

S&W is my choice, but I'd try to find and shoot one first, you might not like how it handles.

Me personally I'd like one of the previously mentioned Ruger Blackhawk Convertible's in .357/9mm...

Re: What's your favorite non-prep prep item?

My favorite is Arizona Gunslinger's Chipotle Habanero. It has a nice smokey taste. Sounds Good :D Is that a local brand? I've had that, it is quite good, but if I remember that's an Arizona region sauce, but I might be remembering wrong. It's been a few years since I lived in Az. I also like El Yuc...

I went and bought a newer ride for the family. Our 99 Durango has served well, but it is over 300,000 miles on the 5.9 and with 4 kids its not getting any bigger, only smaller. :rofl: Upgraded to a 2007 Escalade with low miles and a 6.2.

I can attribute to the quality of a Frog Togg working well. I've had the same Frog Togg rain coat for 3 years, and use it frequently, most recently this past week where it rained 12+ inches in a 5 day period here in Kansas City. I spent several days where I was in the rain for 5+ hours without respi...

Ever since we noticed these type of symbols being use in some form or another on The Walking Dead, me and some friends have been testing what you could make the symbols with to either have them gone by the end of the day, be semi permanent, and so on.

I used to play paintball a lot during high school and my early 20's. My favorite high school job was at an underground paintball field here in KC, I Worked there for a little over 4 years. I used to play with an electric Spyder with an electric hopper. Had a lot of fun doing it.
