That's similar to what Jeff Dahmer used to say. Except he added the raping and eating part.

I love my ruger SR9c. I had it out to frontsight for a 2 day class and it did great. The only reason i am not taking it to the 4 day class this weekend is because my hands are huge and its not very comfortable to put 600 rounds through while doing drills and stuff. The sr9c is my daily carry.



On the flip side, with that new holster as you saw i can 100% conceal my fat-*** 1911.

I carry, and have carried while working for 2 different companies. the first one definitely didnt know, the current one probably does know, but who cares, don't ask dont tell.

I travel around the city alot, and go into crappy neighborhoods alot, and interact with strangers daily.

Its concealed, who cares, out of sight out of mind until i (hopefully never) have to use it, and if i ever do have to use it, i probably will be glad to be alive and not too worried about my job or company.

Everyone makes awesome points on this. In either case of carrying a knife or gun, you better be skilled in its user they'll just take it from you and use it on you. Sirhk is right, absolute last resort!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

So what's the law say if some nut is chasing after you after you try to get away and end up in a scuffle with him while you are carrying? Do you pull it on him or risk him getting his hands on it in the tumble?

I leave my front door open, while I sit on the sofa with a loaded gun, peaking out from under a blanket waiting for someone to come in.

My replacement exhaust manifold is coming in tomorrow. How difficult is that to replace? It doesn't look that difficult. All I would need would be a socket set and a torque wrench, yes?

Who's going to help me?

It's probably easier that putting headers in the v8. I had to unbolt the motor mounts and jack the engine up via the oil pan to make room it was such a tight fit. Does it come with new bolts and gasket as well?

I replaced mine almost a year ago. It doesn't take more than a couple hours. There are some good step-by-step instructions located somewhere on the forum. Just make sure you get the gasket reside off the block before putting the new manifold on.

It comes with a gasket. Not sure about the bolts. I had the manifold switched out with the motor about ten months ago. I know the guy used anti-sieze, so it might be easier.

How much is a torque wrench? Less than $20?

The gasket is a metal one. There really shouldn't be anything to scrape off, is there?

I didn't see any good write ups. If you get a few minutes, could you link one?

Sometimes the coating on the metal gasket leaves some build-up.

Here is the one I found for a 2.5L, not the same one I used since I have a 4.0L, but looks very close to the same steps, but with much more room.

Here is the link:

Hope it help. Off to teach this pesky college kids some stuff.
