Anyone want my glock 36 with nylon holster and 3? mags? I'll sell for $500, or trade for a glock 17 with at least two mags. The 36 has ~250rds through it, and its clean, no nicks or scratches.

I bought this piece of crap Winchester spinning target that would have been fun if it actually stood up after every round
Every time I shot the damn thing it fell over

What brand are you using?

I'll have to check. Mine falls occasionally but one day ill get around to welding it so it doesn't fall. It usually takes a couple of hundred rounds to knock it down.

Dave if you have a receiver you could weld up some square stock to mount it that way so you dont have to take it apart. Just a thought

Since everyone is posting their activities and issues I'll join in...

Tuesday night WM702 and friends did a run out to Nelson NV, at the meeting spot LittleMike's old YJ was squealing like a stuck pig and smoking with an electrical fire smell. Turns out his AC compressor is shot and the bearings were toasting. He doesn't have the cash to replace it right now so we decided to put on a shorter belt and bypass it. Replaced the upper idler pulley as well because it was shot. He also mentioned his heater isn't working and that his engine temp never really moves so we decided to check the thermostat while the belt was off, put in a thermostat 'cause there was not one in it at all, then in the process of putting it back together, torqued the bottom bolt too tight and stripped the threads so it was leaking. Took it back apart, then after reading a few ideas on wrangler & jeep forums figure we're gonna have to drill it out then either tap it or put in a helicoil, decided we're gonna need some room to get a drill in there.. Took out the radiator, fan shroud, and fan and found the water pump is shot too. LOOOOOONG day. So now his rig is sitting in my garage in pieces, none of us have any knowledge, experience or the right tools (right angle drill) to figure out the best way to get that bottom bolt fixed. At about 19:30 (we started around 09:00) my wife told us we were done for the night. I gave Mike the keys to my Honda and sent him home.

I can't work on it today and I am leaving town tomorrow to visit inlaws across the country.

So he's got a new ride for a bit at least! LOL

I don't own a right angle but I have like a 45 degree angle one you guys can borrow if needed? There's also right angle heads that can be used on a standard drill that are fairly cheap at home depot/lowes.

It all sounds like a pain in the butt but also sounds like you guys are at least catching issues that could've been much worse if not caught now.

Just a suggestion....DO NOT use helicoil on water pump nor thermostat housing bolt holes! Many times, the bolt holes enter the water jackets, and helicoils are asking for a persistent leak! Drill it with the smallest possible drill bit and tap it. If he's OCD or anal retentive, do the other/s as well for the same size bolts. Otherwise mark the different sized on for future reference! Make sure your drill is aligned straight, or again, it will leak or just won't torque right!

Also, use a shop back while drilling an tapping the holes to keep shavings out of everything. A cheapy HF right angle drill and HF taps should get the job done inexpensively....
