  1. Take a look at my AR that I have for sale - it has a 13" Troy Battlerail TRX and does not leave much room for the brake. http://www.njgunforums.com/forum/index.php/topic/80571-wts-custom-built-mega-arms-ar15-reduced/
  2. I would re-think using Simplisafe: http://thehackernews.com/2016/02/hack-home-security-alarm.html "SimpliSafe wireless home alarm systems – used by more than 300,000 customers in the United States – are Hell Easy to Hack, allowing an attacker to easily gain full access to the alarm and disable the security system, facilitating unauthorized intrusions and thefts."
  3. I've been looking at the auctions on ebay for a Macbook Pro and I can't believe how the macbook pro's made in mid-2012 still retain their value. Based on that, I can get a mid-2012 macbook pro, i5 processor, 4G memory, 500G HD for around $550 on ebay. I have always been curious about macs due to the audio and recording software and tons of others, but just all around stability. My question, is there anywhere else other than ebay to look at a decent used macbook pro ? There are a lot of companies that sell off-lease macs on ebay and not sure about them. I am willing to to go to around $600-650.
  4. Hey Guys, Need to go onto a construction site in NYC shortly to do a network infrastructure build and want to have comfortable shoes and don't want that added weight of a steel toe shoe. I am guessing that the composite toe shoes are good with OSHA ? I now need to look for a comfortable pair that looks like and comfortable like a sneaker.
  5. Hey guys, Anyone know of plumbing supply shops that carry parts. I am looking for a non-standard pop-up drain stopper that has a smaller diameter (looks like 1 1/8") that what is out there at Home Depot (standard ones are 1 3/8"), as well as the horizontal rod that is smaller. I thought about replacing the whole pop-up mechanism however it's a pedestal sink and can't get at it without removing the sink in order to remove the pedestal. A simple task would turn out into a project. You would think that when installing this pop-up mechanism that you would pick a standard size part. I've spent way too much time on this already. Hoping that there are some plumbers here that can help. Thanks, Ed
  6. Good Luck David - I'm in Monroe as well - looking forward to a 5 minute commute to the range as well !
  7. Some more info on this for various countries: http://www.ecigarette-politics.com/electronic-cigarettes-global-legal-status.html
  8. You can vape but no nicotine in Canada - not sure about indoors though.
  9. wsaraceni - I always thought that great sounding blues guitars usually came from a Les Paul but I am probably completely wrong after doing some more research. The other guitar that I thought had an amazing sound was a Gibson ES335 which I think is a semi-hollow that BB King and Clapton played - this was more the sound that I was looking for and very expensive(and I understand that the player has much to do with it as well). Wondering if there is a good copy of this out there. Mind you, I also love Stevie Ray Vaughan and I know he played a Fender Stratocaster (next on the list) so I may end up going with a Strat, too many choices !
  10. A lot of great advice, thanks ! I always thought I had to spend at least 2K on a Gibson LP Traditional/Standard but it appears that there are some good copies out there with Epiphone and Agile and maybe others. So I now have some trying and playing to do at GC. I also heard a Gibson ES-335 that sounded wonderful for blues but am not prepared to pay 3K. I had no idea copies of most high end guitars were made and of course it would be nice to have a Gibson name on the neck (not to mention resale value) but don't think I would be selling it anyways.
  11. This could get expensive - thinking of selling a few firearms
  12. Just bought myself what I believe is a pretty decent entry level acoustic guitar(Godin Seagull S6) a couple of months ago and love it but I also want to self teach with an electric as well. I'm no stranger to music in general since growing up in an italian household, my parents had me take accordion lessons and I've learned music theory as well. I still kick myself of not picking up guitar in my younger years. The music theory has come back to me and has helped with reading music. Many decades later now, I want to learn both acoustic and electric guitar. My question to the guitar players out there is that I have been eying a Les Paul (love the sound). Ideally, I want to get a Gibson that is made in the US but they also have the Epiphone Les Paul copies (owned by Gibson) that I think is made overseas and not sure of the quality. I don't want to get something entry level now that I won't appreciate later as I get better but if I go with the Gibson, they are up there in price, as well as the many models to choose from, Standard, Traditional, Studio, etc (not to mention the many different humbucker pickups available). I'm interested in learning blues and rock and maybe branch out to other genres and what I've heard so far, Les Paul seems like a good fit for rock and blues. This is for my own enjoyment, playing at home.
  13. It's my foot that is sore so am guessing it's the arch support that I am not getting - lot of good responses, thanks. Guess I'll be checking out some of the options you guys mentioned tomorrow.
  14. For those of you whose job is to stand and/or walk all day, any comfortable shoe recommendations ? I get home and my feet are aching. I've tried casual skechers shoes and cross-trainers. I think I am looking for something with more padding / insoles ? I'm working on a large project at the largest convention center in NYC and am walking a million miles a day. This place is huge. Ed
  15. I've been smoking Graycliff G2's for awhile now and need something different...

  17. Aw crap - My Dad had a gillette TTT and laughed at it when I started shaving 35 years how antique it was and now regret throwing it out.
  18. That was my next question whether the lenses are interchangeable with DSLR cameras - thanks.
  19. I have a Minolta Maxxum 7000 with lenses, flash, filters,etc and wondering if there is still a market for these cameras. I haven't used this for years and just curious if there is a following for these cameras or is this destined for the trash ?
  20. This is a first for me - didn't realize Amazon sold Lower Parts Kits http://www.amazon.com/Cmmg-LPK-Lower-Parts-55CA6C5/dp/B008CXIUDQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1387028323&sr=1-1&keywords=ar15+lower+parts+kit http://www.amazon.com/tacticalambush-com-Ar15-Lower-Part-Kit/dp/B00E1R7UOW/ref=sr_1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1387028378&sr=1-2&keywords=ar15+lower+parts+kit http://www.amazon.com/AR15-Lower-Parts-Tactical-Intent/dp/B00B42EVCG/ref=sr_1_3?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1387028403&sr=1-3&keywords=ar15+lower+parts+kit
