  1. I have used Windy Hills in Allentown NJ for years, never had an issue.
  2. My dog started barking, then my wife started yelling at me that the washing machine was out of balance again. After about 5 seconds we realized it was probably an earthquake.
  3. Looks like there was a magnitude 4.8 earthquake near Whitehouse Station, I felt it here in Central Jersey.
  4. Just curious if anyone does any extensive accuracy testing with handgun reloads and if so, what is your process? I typically don't, but I started wondering if this is another rabbit hole worth going down.

    Welcome aboard! I grew up in Vernon, where everyone knows it is called Taylor Ham!
  6. Same here. Had three kids who all played high school and college sports. We found alternate sources and diverted close to a couple thousand $$$ a year to other sources!
  7. So, let me get this straight. France has very strict firearms laws, basically disarming the general population in order to make everyone safer. Now there is a bit of social unrest and who are the first to get arms? The lawless, violent rioters who steal weapons directly from the police? And who is left unarmed and vulnerable... you guessed it, the law-abiding citizens.
  8. We had it for a while, but as others mentioned, got tired of the annual or even 6 month call to bargain down the price. Switched to Spotify Family a while back and that seems to be working, the whole family gets an account up to 6 people.
  9. Hmm... we have a joint account, I worked 2 jobs for years paid for the mortgage, kid's private school, 3 college educations and funded a retirement. My wife didn't work. I think I I need to look into separate accounts.
  10. New Biden administration cabinet member?
  11. Thanks for the replies, I am debating sending it back to Ruger, but it looks like a really minor repair, something that I should be able to easily do. The spring may even still be there, but it may have slipped off. I may take a look tonight and if the disassembly is as easy as it looks, I might just do it myself.
  12. I think I need to repair or replace the slide stop spring on my SR22. The slide stop will lock the slide open when engaged but needs to be manually depressed in order to allow the slide to move forward, the stop stays up and doesn't drop down when I pull the slide back. From what I can see on an exploded parts diagram, there is a small spring that should keep the slide stop down and it looks like that spring is either broken or has fallen off. Has anyone ever had to change this spring? It looks like I can get the firing assembly out of the frame by removing a roll pin at the handle. Ruger SR 22 Complete Disassembly - Bing video If anyone has any experience with this I would appreciate it. Thanks!
  13. Just finished a batch of Black Rifle Co- Thin Blue Line. Wasn't aware of their politics, need to look closer at that, thanks for the heads up.
  14. Just hearing on Fox, there was a "massive" explosion in the airspace over Montana. Anyone else hear anything about this?
  15. RIP. Played a lot if his stuff years ago!
  16. So, somehow my son lost both keys for his truck, a 2010 Ford F150 I would guess that even a 2010 uses a key with a transponder/chip. Any suggestions on where we can get another key made? My son has access to the truck using the key codes, but we need a new key. Do I have to go to the dealer, or can a lock smith make one? Any recommendations would be appreciated. We are in Central Jersey in Allentown. Thanks.
  17. Thank you for the offer, I will probably just change out the battery. It is testing less than 12.6V open circuit and drops way down when lights are turned on, so I am thinking it is starting to go.
  18. I agree, I think I will just change her battery, and if the alternator is still outputting 13.9V at idol, we should be good to go.
  19. 2013 Mazda 3, battery is probably 4-5 years old. Yep, VA to NJ plus back and forth to work for a week. Yes- 13.9v at idol. I am thinking bad battery or... my lovely daughter left a light or something on in the car.
  20. My daughter just recently moved to Richmond VA after graduating college. She called me last week to tell me that her car wouldn't start, and she thought it was the battery. Of course, she didn't leave any of the lights on or anything like that (had to take her word), I told her to get a jump and if it starts take it to the local Midas and if needed get a new battery. She went to Midas, and they told her she needed a new alternator, and it would cost her at least $1000. I told her to hold off and I would check myself. After she got the jump start, she drove the car for a week back and forth to work with no issues. She works nights, so she drove home every night with the lights on, a 10-minute drive but lights on, nonetheless. When I met her this weekend, I first tested the battery with the car off, got 12.3V. With the car running I got 13.9V. To me, this points to a good alternator and a weakening battery since it was below 12.6V under no load. Was the dealer trying to scam a 22-year-old girl or could the alternator still be bad? I drove the car from VA back to NJ with no issues. Thanks,
  21. This is my second option, bringing the scale up to eye level and making the platform large enough for a powder trickler. I think the camera option might be easier. This will only be for rifle loads that I do on my single stage, I have a powder cop for my progressive that I use for my pistol loads.
