I happen to live in the Democratic Republic of Illinois. It's just criminal how they view the citizens as incapable of protecting themselves.

I would say that the old "leaf / flat" springs will take a set faster then coil springs. As to mag springs for a semi-auto --- I know that the old GI mags springs were VERY good --- had one fully loaded mag that sat for close to 25 years and it fed/worked fine --- BUT --- you should always have extr...

Trading never works as well as selling/buying. In a few situations it's seamless because Person A wants Person B's item and the same is in return. It's balanced, perfect, and with a hand-shake life is good. The problem is that the world isn't perfect and while I may like your ___ and want it I beli...

I LOVE my PPT and carry it sometimes -- the blade shape is wicked in a SD type of thing and yet it works great for every day chores. I also think it has one of the best textured handles of all the :spyder: -- and mine opens effortlessly and locks up like a bank vault.
