  1. As others have stated, $50 won't get you much more than a cheap drone that doesn't really fly all too well. You didn't mention if you wanted something for LOS (line of sight) or FPV (First Person View) flying. FPV would most definitely be more expensive. If your kid is serious about getting into FPV drones, you may want to start out with a simulator first. Something like DRL(DroneRacingLeague) or VelociDrone. Once they can comfortably fly in the simulator, then look into purchasing a starter whoop kit like some of the ones ESB mentioned above.
  2. If you're willing to drive into PA, Tanner's has some good deals every now and then.
  3. I never used Savvy. Just used a V1C for BT connectivity. The only good thing is that once you learn JBV1, you can try out YAV1 if you want as the main configuration items are the same. The most critical are the sweeps. Everything else is convenience.
  4. There is a ton of information on rdrforums.org. Vortex Radar on Youtube also has some tutorials. The nice thing about JBV1 is that it's updated much more frequently than Yav1. I used Yav1 for a while and like JBV1 much better. There is a thread on rdrforums that has recommended sweep settings for different locations. Last time I checked, believe they had about 5 for NJ. If you plan on traveling, you can pull up all the recommended settings for each state and just save them as different profiles and upload them for each state you're driving through.
  5. If you haven't used JBV1, I highly recommend it. Been using it with my V1 gen 1 ever since it came out. It is also integrated with Waze now so you will get Waze alerts. It does take some time to learn, but once you do and set up custom sweeps, it is much less chatty and quiets things down tremendously.
  6. Get a gun safe with a S&G combo lock. Those locks also use a key to lock the wheel from turning so you would have to have the key and know the combination. Plus the combo entry is not like a typical padlock and involves more turns between numbers.
  7. I would recommend you go to SnipersHide forums and read up on the optics forum on any optic you are interested in. Vortex PST, Burris XTRII, and Sig Tango scopes are all in your price range if you shop around. All are FFP with good glass. If your budget is $750, do yourself a favor and don't look through any high end scopes. Once you do, you won't want anything else. Sent from my SM-T700 using Tapatalk
  8. I silver soldered a VG6 onto a BA barrel and luckily, the GB can still be slid off easily, but I do understand your concern. Good luck with the build. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  9. Did you look at the SLR adjustable gas block? I went with that one for a 6.5CM AR build recently. It's highly regarded on the SnipersHide and arfcom forums. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  10. Got both my checks and 2 vouchers today. I shipped 2 512 sights back and based on the PDF posted, they included the $15 shipping cost in the check.
  11. They just updated the www.fostersettlement.com site with this: The class action litigation has been resolved and the case concluded by the court. Class member claims were required to have been filed by May 23, 2017. Payments are being processed and will begin to be mailed on or about September 13, 2017. For any class member who filed a claim on time, but failed to return the sight, please be advised that as of September 15, 2017, the claims administrator will not accept any sights returned by class members who previously had filed timely claims.
  12. Loctite doesn't work on metal-to-plastic. It's only for metal-to-metal. If you need metal-to-plastic, you can use a drop of CA glue (crazy glue) That's what is used on my RC helicopters and cars if it's really needed. Otherwise, the friction from the plastic on the screw should be enough to hold it. Sent from my SM-T700 using Tapatalk
  13. I use a Wheeler torque driver at home and have a Borka for the range. Sent from my SM-T700 using Tapatalk
  14. Nothing yet. Should be soon though as it's getting close to the 30 days from 8/7. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  15. Just picked up a Hornady LNL AP from Cabelas. Went through Active Junky for 10% back, had a $20 off $150 coupon, and signed up for a Cabelas card for another $25 off. Ended paying $352.99 shipped. Should get $35 back from Active Junky in a couple months. You can definitely pick up some good deals if you shop around. Also picked up an Ultra mount with a quick change plate. Definitely something to consider if you want to raise the press up higher and be able to swap out other presses or tools quickly.

  16. You can get it from Jet.com with a $20 coupon which brings the price to ~$372 shipped. Or from Cabelas just dropped the price to $389 and there are $20 coupons floating around as well. There's an $8 surcharge for the oversized item so price is $379 shipped. If you go through Amazon, you have to pay tax as well which I don't think you have to pay with Jet or Cabelas.
  17. I received an email to my inquiry about when checks would go out and below is their response: Thank you for your correspondence. On July 7th 2017 Final Approval of the Class Action Settlement was granted at the Final Fairness Hearing. Distribution will occur within 30 days of the class action’s effective date, August 7th 2017, barring an appeal of the final approval. Please visit fostersettlement.com for all updates on the case.
  18. Looks like the Court approved it on Friday based on this: http://www.eotechlawsuit.com/FinalApprovalOrder.pdf The Fostersettlement.com website hasn't been updated yet though.
  19. They seem to be hit or miss. . .at least that's what I've found. They were priced the same as Eurooptic for a Tikka T3X CTR when no one else had them in stock a few weeks ago. I've purchased a few firearms from them where they were competitively priced if you factored in transfer fees from purchasing online instead. But then again, I don't buy AR/AK variants from them so maybe that would explain the pricing differential.
  20. I contacted the firm and they confirmed that they received the sights I sent in. If you read the website, the hearing isn't scheduled to occur until June 30th. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  21. I use a Honda 4 stroke trimmer. Yes, it's expensive, but buy once cry once. Grew up using Honda lawn equipment. With the 4 stroke, no mixing 2 stroke oil with the gas. Change the oil once a year and plenty of power. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  22. Just a heads up on scopes. Burris is offering $100 rebates on the XTRII scopes and Bushnell is offering 25% rebates on anything purchased by June 5th. Pulling the trigger on a LRTS tonight as I've read good things about them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
  23. Cheyenne is overpriced on some items, but I've found that they are pretty reasonable most of the time. They also surprise me at times by having something in stock that no one else has. For example, was looking for a Tikka T3X CTR in 6.5CM with a SS barrel. I checked all around and no one had any in stock, even online vendors. On a whim, I emailed Cheyenne and they had one in stock and were selling it for the same price as Eurooptics. I did stop in Sportsman's Center since it's on the way back from Cheyenne. I bought my Liberty safe from them a few years back as well. It's a shame, but the place just looked really quiet when compared to Cheyenne. There was only 1 other person in there the entire time I was there whereas Cheyenne had at least 5-7 folks. The Liberty safes are all gone from the front of the store now so I'm assuming they are not selling them anymore. Just overall seems like the place is slowly dying.
  24. I usually prefer UPS as I have an account with them as well, but I've found that if it will fit in a USPS flat rate box, it is cheaper to ship. Sent from my SM-T700 using Tapatalk
  25. I used USPS. Sent from my SM-T700 using Tapatalk
