  1. Find your self a side shaft engine, they are really interesting .
  2. The guy I know with his huge stash of amo is defiantly gouging . And that’s what he planned on doing right from the get go.
  3. My only caution these days with all these new guns flocking into the market place from all different directions and all different manufactures is regardless of who copied who or who came up with a better mouse trap they are all pumping them out the door as fast as humanly possible. I have taken apart some of the popular automatic pistols that friends and family have reciently acquired and always find the same thing . Razor sharp edges on internal parts, tool and machine marks, mass produced tight fitting parts that need about 1000 rounds fired through it before it becomes reliable.

    There’s a machine shop in Lincoln called TMCO, it’s a huge operation covering a couple of city square blocks they do powder coating , Robotic sandblasting, robotic welding, they build the entire grain tank assembly for the caterpillar combine and ten dozen other amazing things. The owner put up a solar panel on a pole that actually tracks the position of the sun. It’s a huge panel it’s a very nice system with state of the art components but it still isn’t expected to pay for itself for about 20 years . Perhaps that will change if it can be updated . Be great for a youn

    Be neat to have an efficient electric vehicle and a wind generator to recharge it . Or if the solar panel technology gets to the point where the roof of the vehicle could recharge it.
  6. Well I will sleep better tonight at least knowing that you didn’t say you wouldn’t hug me . 😍
  7. So. Are you saying you wouldn’t hug me ?

    One thing no one mentions about the Tesla is the recharging time. The car comes with an adapter / charger cord / kit that you simply plug into any regular 110 volt outlet . Thats all well and good until you realize it takes all night and most of the next day for it to recharge at the rate of around 1 KW per hour . Of course you can buy another method that’s much faster that plugs into a 220 volt outlet .
  9. But. But. But. What if I want a hug?
  10. But. But. But. I want to touch the stove .
  11. No and I bet you could do the same .
  12. Funny picture . I know there is a cult like following with Jeep’s and millions of people love em but every one I ever got involved with I couldn’t get rid of fast enough . I wouldn’t have one if it was free .

    Love that Analogy.
  15. They warrantied it . That’s one thing about Toyota they pretty much warranty anything .
  16. That’s ok , it looks like this forum will soon belong to a school bus full of 12 year olds anyway .
  17. Depending on what she was driving you can also read the “ black box” as it’s nicknamed and find out her speed, Cruze, gear, etc.., My Toyota buddy showed me a Brand new Tundra the other day that they had the tranny out of. I always kid them about their poser trucks so he told me the owner claimed the tranny just quit one day for no reason . They plugged into the computer and found out that the last thing the truck was doing was 89 mph in reverse , it also got towed in covered with mud so they suspected the owner got it stuck and was too stupid to own it.
  18. No doubt had the cruse control on .

    That’s the best Analogy of what a Tesla is that I have ever heard . A Tesla will blow the doors off any muscle car out there.
  20. Not sure how many times there has been an attempt to push it through but this time it might make it from what people are saying . lots of commercials on local TV . Some for it and of course some not . Even Tom Osborne , the ex Husker foot ball coach / red neck/ prude/ self proclaimed God of Nebraska dosent want it so he is on TV trying to jam his own personal cult agenda down everyone’s throat . That old douche bag looks like death warmed over telling people how it will ruin everyone’s life. I hope it passes just so it will piss him off .

    Valid points . Actually the battery in a Tesla has to warm up before It operates at its potential . The instrument screen showes the operator a battery heat/ efficiency graph .
  22. Every 25 year old female I know is either texting a friend or putting something on facefart every waking moment of the day . My bet is the whole shoe/foot/ interference story is total BS She just doesn’t want to admit she was texting .

    Yes the Tesla’s are amazing, I have driven one , the same guy I mentioned in the Cabelas thread that ownes a gun store has one and let me have it for a day. There amazing . BUT, don’t think for a minute that it’s maintenance free. All jokes aside a Prius is a pretty good car too but did you know that the battery’s in these high tech cars can kill you? Another good friend of mine ownes an auto body shop. All of his employees have had to go through special training so if a wrecked hybrid comes in that they don’t get electrocuted while removing the damaged parts . Hav
