Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Re: Ford Expedition

I think you can get about $3,500 for it right now in today's market.
I have a 2002 with Triton 5.4 with 265,000 miles on it and broken A/C and I was offered $1,500 last year. I ended up keeping mine for use at the farm and for my son to learn to drive so no tag and no insurance.

Re: Living FULL-TIME in The KEYS?

I know someone in Miami who retired to a house next to water near Tavernier Creek. He loved boating and fishing so it suited him well. After about 3 years he got bored of boating and fishing so he sold the place and moved to property in Live Oak where he can shoot any time in his back yard. Couple y...

Re: Answering the Riddle of Steel

I see the practicality of stainless steel handguns and I even have several SS handguns but I like the look of blued steel a lot more. I know they scratch easily and show usage a lot easier but I don't mind the worn look of blued handguns.

Re: West German Sig P6 hammer and mags

Is there difference between Sig P-225 mags and P6 mags?
I assume difference would be just marking?

Re: 870 Rifle Sight - Front Ramp?

I’ve never seen 870 rifle sight alone. If ghost sight is acceptable Sage International makes 870 front and rear ghost sight.

Re: S&W Revolver Lock Failure???

The lock does serve one purpose at my house. I normally carry a 442 in my pocket on most days and when I get home I lock the revolver and put it in the drawer until next day instead of going through the trouble of putting it in my safe. See, I never touch mine. I want that lock to be tight and stic...

S&W Revolver Lock Failure???

I see that a lot of people will only buy S&W revolvers without the lock. As a long time avid S&W revolver collector and shooter most of mine are without locks but I have few J frame revolvers with lock. I have a 442 and 60 with lock which I have shot many rounds in past 12+ years most of which were ...
