A lot of easy oops mistakes that got fixed.

This wasn't toward the length of time it took you. It was that you did it at all and are now doing it again. I'd never criticize you for the length of time it takes. Good on you for doing it yourself.

Ah yeah. Kind of a disappointing winter over here. Was hoping for more snow. Actually looking forward to lowering and raising it. Gonna be fun every time, don't mind wrenching on the car to do this. Also, swapping front bumpers too lol!

Same here, I was just giving you the business. Like I said , I know it would take me just as long if I tried to do it myself. LOL I'll be going to Jay or Renner when it's time to replace my shocks.

For anyone looking for a new S&W Shield or Bodyguard, starting April 1st, S&W is having $75 rebates on the Shields and $50 rebates on the Bodyguards. You can effectively get a new Shield for $225 after rebate

I just pulled the trigger on a M&P 22C finally. $289 with threaded barrel Is the cheapest I have ever seen it. Everyone jacked prices up last year and now they are finally coming down! YEA HAWW

That fear of Hillary price speculation

May have to look into a side piece. Ended up never getting one when I didn't like the size of the XDM compact

Couple places online for $299-$315 currently. But that rebate will bring them down to insane prices. I am trying a new FFL near my house. Only $24 transfers and 2 miles away.

Closest one to me is in A.H., $30.

Love to get another pistol this year, but opting to put some money into the GTI.

There are 2.

https://www.conditionyellowacademy.com/
5.) The cost is $24 per firearm transfer payable upon pick-up, or it can be pre-paid below


http://checkyour6inc.com/

Transfers are only $30! Discounts for CCW students and multiple purchases or repeat customers.


Plus this guy only does transfers 4-6pm. Odd.
