  1. Past hour
  2. Sorry to disappoint the rumor mill, but this "incident" did not take place in or around RTSP Randolph or Union. Sounds like a wonderful attempt of "fake News" portrayed by the misinformed. See you at the range.
  3. I have no clue but im sure some components are made in the USA. Foxconn will be making chips in the US and i would make sense some of that will be for apple. China black / grey market carries everything. no matter what it is or who makes it... They are thieves plain and simple.... Would i love American companies to make products in america... YES 100% Sadly over the years the american market has be hostile to business, Only after trumps election have we rolled back some regulations. Im hoping it continues... If we fall back less and less will be made here.
  4. We have a 2018 and a 2019 GMC Terrain and both have the shutoff feature. There’s no way to turn it off bu5 once you get used to it it’s really not intrusive. I am doubious of how much fuel it actually saves though. Maybe if you are stopped at lights or in traffic a lot but that not part of my driving... -Jim
  5. And which of those components are actually made in the U.S? Not talking about company affiliations and locations, i'm talking about location the physical hardware is made. The funny thing is that you can build an iphone from scratch buying all the components from street vendors in China because Apple can't control the gray or black market in China.
  6. Sorry, I can't help with a method to permanently override it, but when I had a rental GM with that feature I learned moving the steering wheel slightly would prevent it from shutting off also.
  7. Many thanks to SW9racer. I now have what I need. The boy will be pleased.

  9. I've seen the same thing. Everyone I know who has a iPhone or iPad has complained about the connector/cable going bad. I'm still using the same Droid cable for at least 3+ years. Plus, it fits all types of other Android devices/phones, generic tablets, MP3 players, bluetooth speakers and many other items that charge from a USB cable. And, I've never paid one cent for any music I've downloaded, compared to iTunes.
  10. The lie is that they are an american company, not a single portion of the iphone is built or assembled in the U.S. I know Samsung is not made in the U.S. either but Samsung in not an American company.
  11. Don’t know... was actually about to ask the same thing. Back of the phone makes it abundantly clear.
  12. Where is the lie? Does ANYONE not know Apple’s phones, like most phones, are made in China? I’ve never seen Apple claim otherwise.
  13. True. I read that Chevy is using a bigger, heavier duty battery for this system.
  14. To be fair... iv had an iphone for years... Last phone i had other then iphone i think was a blackberry.
  15. Question for lawyers or those who have had a car accident. If you were in a car accident that was not your fault and are seeing a doctor for possible injuries who covers your medical Ins deductibles if you need to regularly see a physical therapist?
  16. I think it would be cool to have a "Which One" Section in which we discuss two different firearms and people can weigh in. Here are some examples: Glock 19 gen 3 vs gen 4 Colt 1911 vs S&W 625 M&P 2.0 Compact vs Glock 19 Gen 5 M&P 9C vs M&P 2.0 Compact 3.6 Sig 226 vs Sig 229 M&P 22 Compact vs M&P 22 22/45 vs Mark II S&W Victory vs Buckmark 870 vs 500 SP101 vs GP100 Is anybody else interested? If so, what would you want to compare? Who wants to weigh in?
  17. I have had the exact opposite experience. Unfortunately every one in my house hold except me has iphones. I tried to convert them but they are all stuck in the "easier interface" mentality. Anyway, I still use the original Galaxy S8 cable from 2 years ago. My wife's and Kid's iphone cables go bad every few months.
  18. That makes much more sense But to be fair the lighting cable is the best connector on any cell iv owned. I always has issues with others and the connector eventually not accepting the cable correctly and not charging.... Im not saying others currently are not as good.. but im just stating my experience.
  19. My numbers were off but here is an article. https://www.forbes.com/sites/theopriestley/2016/01/11/apple-ditching-the-headphone-jack-is-less-about-music-more-about-royalties/#2038b8c56297
  20. To be honest... If i made cables and only paid 15.00 to license each (SKU) it i would not really be concerned. but you other apple issues are legit
  21. The company paid $15 to Apple to use the connector for that particular model, I don't remember if it was 1 time or annual fee. But keep in mind, they paid $15 to use the lightening connector on a 3 foot white cable, $15 on a 3 foot gray cable, $15 on a 6 foot pink cable, etc... So if you sell 10 different cables (color and size combination) you pay Apple $150
  22. THis is a bit confusing.... Are you saying they charge 15.00 total for use of that jack style or Per item... IE. when i buy a $6.00 lighting cable the company paid apple $15.00 for it?
  23. Android 100% of the time. I hate Apple, period. Not only their products but also their business practices. Apple has to lock everything down and charge for everything. I read somewhere that the entire reason Apple uses the propitiatory lightening plug is because they can charge a $15 license fee for every single product that uses that connection, and I mean every product. If you are a manufacturer of cables, you have a license fee for every color of that same cable. That is why they removed the head phone plug and why every iphone dongle or cable costs so much. And there is a running joke that EVERY NEW technology Apple introduces has been available in a Samsung, Google, Motorola, etc... phone for at least 2 years. Also, they LIE. Every single iphone is made in China, every single one. This is an American company!!! Android devices, on the other hand, are made by multiple companies, you have a great selection. And because of the competition the hardware line-up is much better. The Android system is open. I connect my phone to my PC and can use it as a standard external storage device. I can side load apps if I want to, i'm not restricted to a specific app store.
  24. Today
  25. Looks like Andrey Kirisenko blew his cover by loaning his shirt. You can run his name and apparently he's a big time competitor in shooting sports. I don't know if he was with the FSB but I can believe they train doing something like that. Back in the 90s I helped train some Eastern Europeans after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and Soviet Union. Great men and women who would do anything for you. However, they had little concept of safety. They did things that would horrify Western Europeans and Americans. I have it from competent sources the SAS do a hostage rescue drill where they have one of their mates sit in a room and have lifelike targets sitting on either side of him. They have to make the entry and take out the targets without hitting their friend. I've heard from reliable sources that one day Margret Thacher was observing SAS training including this drill. She volunteered to play the hostage in spite of what her security detail did. About 100 years ago in basic training the Army had a night infiltration course. You low crawled a couple of hundred yards while they had a M60 firing 8-10 ft over you. They set off 1/4 pound charges in pits which shielded you from the blast but you still had sand raining down on you. Don't know if they still do this. Kind of mild in comparison.
  26. Would be cool to see that Slow mo including Slide Bite..
