    I'm no expert but I'm guessing we're looking at "stone shiv" levels of sharpness? In the end it doesn't need to be hair-splitting sharp,...

    I thought the PMC X-Tac 55gr was an M193 clone with visible annealing discoloration. Is this something different or just shined up for marketing? It was pretty good ammo as I recall. Not $.75 per...

    During a family visit to a theme park when I was a kid, I walked up to a map kiosk, pointed at the "you are here" dot and asked incredulously "how do they know where we are?". My parents made some...

    Just tried that, still doesn't work. It seems remember the last spot I was in a video regardless of the parameters. If I use an incognito window it always starts from the beginning.

    I've worked a little more on this guy recently. Using gentle abrasives and a toothbrush, followed by a 24-hour mineral oil bath, it's approaching the look I want. I haven't thoroughly removed the...

    Skilhunt E3A: Great $10 keychain light

    Impressive little light for the price. Most tiny lights ramp down over the battery life but this one can sustain 100 lumens for an hour with a regular AAA eneloop and more with lithium batteries if...

  12. Buckethead

    Buckethead is difficult to classify. "Obscure Electric Guitar Rock God Nobody Cares About" comes close but he isn't Steve Vai or Yngwie Malmsteen. He's much weirder.

    Understood. I guess I was surprised at the difference between "XM tier" and "Wal-Mart tier" Federal 5.56/.223, the latter being several-MOA superior in my lots and gun.
