I'm admitting my food storage problem

Took me a while to get there. I always thought I was okish, could probably go a few weeks without going to the store. But when I was cleaning and organizing our pantry today, I realized that I could go 2 weeks max. Lots of pre packaged stuff and other stuff that wouldn't constitute a filling meal. S...

Re: BOV Journal: '97 Chevy Silverado 1500 (Bubba BOV)

Nice looking truck. What engine is in it?

Find a good chevy forum and post up there. They'll be able to direct you to the small things that may be wrong, or the little things to look for to fix, etc.

Overall, clean looking truck from what you've shown us

Re: Foregrip on a shotgun?

The only problem with rails on a shotgun forarm, especially the bottom where you grip, is it can cheese grater your hand quick if you aren't careful. It is not a fun feeling in my experience. Make sure you get some rail covers if you are going that route

Remington 1100 help

Last year I bought a rem 1100 tactical. Lots of fun and it worked great the first time I took it out. Then I tried to clean it and something went wrong. I read all the directions in the manual and followed a few YouTube videos, and it seemed to go alright. But once it was all together it wasn't quit...

Re: Automotive tool checklist

Also slime is terrible to "pre treat" wheels with. It'll harden up and then put your tire off balance. It'll do in a pinch but leave it in the bottle, not the tire, until you need it Actually that is not what the warning label specifies. It states that "WARNING: Slime is a temporary repair when use...
