FMJ and yes, it's probably just dirty to be honest... It's way past due for a cleaning! I'm used to my glock that you can just abuse. LOL

It wouldn't stay that way for long. I have a bad habit that everyone else around here has. There is always something that you can change for the better. It would be a toy. After thinking about it I need to get rid of the zj first.

nice. should be a good little gun.

I had an XD45, that I sold to a buddy because I couldn't stand it.

It was a great gun, I just couldn't get used to the feel or something. never had any problems with it, just wasn't for me.

Wtf I'm only 26. Haha. My truck is the first car I purchased with working a/c. All of my previous cars I had to get the air working after I got them. My camaro had r-12 and that thing would freeze you to the bone in the summer.

Anyone have a use for an old ac compressor out of a cj?? I had planned on using it for an air compressor but decided electric was easier. Has the clutch and all it worked last time I screwed with it I am getting ready to toss it so it's free.
