Re: Is this a roofing scam???

My barrel tile roof is 25 years old now and it's not in perfect condition. I recently had a small leak fixed by a reputable roofer who thinks it was caused by tile vibration caused by wind during one of the past hurricanes that loosen a nail...that lead to a small leak. I have couple other broken ti...

Re: Battle between two of the '90s classic Wonder-Nines

I tried to like hi-capacity DA 9mm pistols but I never could get attached to them as I have short fingers and never got good trigger position with them for DA. Closest one I liked was the Sig P226 for which my friend made me a "short reach trigger" by grinding down the standard trigger...I later got...

Speer Gold Dot 55gr

Re: harrington & richardson h&r model 999

4" barrel are worth a little more than the 6" version...maybe $50 more.
