    I tried to wear out both a GP100 Ruger Redhawk 44mag. Couldn't do it. Both guns got mostly mag loads, and heavy ones at that (180gr @ 1300 for the GP and 310 @ 1200 for the Redhawk). I gave up...

    PC upgrade decisions

    The conversation in another thread about chip shortages and their impact on PC and PC upgrade prices got me thinking about my 9yo PC.

    I built it 9 years ago to be a bit of a "do all" machine. ...

    That's the one. My local HRO had them until recently (as in a week or so ago). I kind of wish I had bought one to flip on eBay.

    I love my KX2, it is a perfect fit for my interests.

    Gotcha. There is one HT, made by Kenwood, that does decode SSB and CW for receive. It's over $700 though. I came close to buying one until I realized it wasn't much smaller than my KX2 which not...
