    I've seen some gorgeous Kimbers that ran like a top. But in this market where the other big guys are warrantying their products for a lifetime (usually transferrable), what's up with Kimber's 1-year warranty?

    Anybody want to work at Picatinny?

    Put it in resume form, we can see what happens...

    Sorry, IT is contracted out

    I don't have that. But I have grenades in the back room.

    IDK what those are listings for but there's no predetermined timeframe in my group, if both sides are happy it's for as long as the career lasts

    Beards are fine, as are tattoos. You can't drink at work but is that any different from anywhere else? You're free to get sloshed on the golf course or playing softball as long as youre not driving drunk No you can't bring guns on-post but this is NJ so who carries them around anyway? (There is a mechanism for shotgun hunting on-post but I understand it's a colossal pain in the ass). There are plenty of guns that live here permanently tho....22LR all the way up to 7" missiles There are many people that commute from PA but you probably want to get going early before eastbound 80 piles up.

    Both, depending on what the candidate is bringing I don't know about the PCS thing...they paid mine but that was a long ass time ago. It might be negotiable
  8. Primarily mechanical engineers but also engineering support like draftsmen/CAD techs. Upcoming grads for this spring might work out too. Obviously I left out what this specific group does but if anybody fits the requirements above HMU and we can talk. I'm not personally doing the hiring but I can pass along resumes. I figured a community of FID holders might be a good place to look for someone who can pass a background check, lol
  9. Franklin Twp in Somerset? Come by SCFGPA or my house you can fiddle with a Springfield Loaded. The Loaded costs a little more than, say, a GI or Range Officer but I think the build quality is all pretty similar (If its Franklin in Somerset I can understand why you're using private high school...)

    I have some Tandemkross parts on my GSG 1911 and it's an amusing little gun. Unlike @louu's experinece above, mine is rather ammo-finnicky but not so much that I've given up on it (CCI-AR 90% reliable or so, Federal bulk like 50%...haven't tried the Mini Mags yet...Velocitors are good but they're expensive AF)

    Safe dehumidifier

    I was talking about the plug in kind. And regarding the ammo boxes I should have actually said ammo CAN. I put the various ammo boxes inside the latching can with a desiccant unit. For the safe my silica gel is in a box that I have to put in an oven to dry out (I have a junkyard toaster oven for projects and stuff like this). It has a much larger capacity than the EVA-DRY units but I could certainly have used more than one instead All types have an indicator that turns a different color when it needs drying out, although if it's a seldom used container I suppose you wouldn't see it. But then again if its' seldom used it shouldn't leak much humidity either.

    Safe dehumidifier

    I use the EVA-DRY units in ammo boxes, and a larger container of silica for the safe. I don't have a humidity measurement in there but (knock on wood) I don't have any corrosion so far and theyre easy to refresh when they need it I don't have power in my safe so a plug in dehumidifier wasn't really an option for me, it would be quite a chore to drill a hole and then re-fireproof the hole
  13. While I don't necessarily think they did this, I disagree with your statement. AI, or even low-tech scripting could create piles and piles of fake but realistic data

    cordless impact

    I have the converter attachment. Works fine in my grinder and circular saw, those are the only 18v tools I have left. IIRC the converter packaging will tell you what tools it won't work on. Probably has something to do with physically not fitting, as the voltage is the same (20v is marketing, they're all 18v*) and those tools I tried have to be some of the heaviest draws I can think of. * https://www.protoolreviews.com/news/20v-max-vs-18v-battery-power/17024/
  15. When I wanted to try stippling for my M&P I picked up a few spare backstraps from Midway at a few dollars each. I assume Glock would be even easier to find. Just in case you weren't aware you could do that
