Theo is a yorkiechon (75% yorkie and 25% bichon). He's 4 months old and definitely one of the best dogs I've ever had. My father has had several labs, and I had two yorkies with an ex, and this little guy is smarter and easier to train than any of them. I have noticed though, that the smarter the dog, the more he is apt to get into trouble. I never had a dog listen or learn things as fast as this one. Even though he's 25% bichon, he still bichon blitzes every night. I need to take a video of it because he does laps for about five minutes and then passes out.

I actually got that matrix off of Craigslist for $200!!! Brand new!!

Seriously though, Im gonna be trying to get a permit to carry also.
I work in Detroit, and not main city detroit, in the outskirts..... in the bad area.
Im happy I don't live in Detroit (about 15 minutes away)

We hear gun shots all the time in the same neighborhood as my work. One of my co-workers was closing one night and was held up at gun-point and was forced to give up his wallet.

To make matter's worse, I work for a welding supply company. So we have and fill all types of gases (flammable, non-flammable, liquids you name it).
And we found fired rounds sitting next to two of our Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Argon bulk tanks. Almost as if some duma a** thought they would have fun and try to shoot the big tank to see what would happen. They were small rounds though, and were probably fired from the next street which is a pretty good distance away. There is no way it would have punctured the tank, but its still kind of scary considering the fact that we have Huge bulk tanks of propane and other flammables also.

Needless to say, if im going to continue working here, I need to carry. So that little safe is a nice touch.
Right now at the very least, I always carry my knife with me.
I was going to get out but seeing as this guy was around 6'3" I wasn't about to go and fight him. I'm 5'6" 170lbs in very good shape but I wasn't looking for a mismatch. That is why I need an LTC! haha Seems like you've got a very good reason to have one though, gunshots in the work neighborhood must be rough!

The 45ACP is reassuring too.

I don't think you can even show it to the fool unless you're actually going to shoot him.

You did the best thing just getting out of there.

Yea you can't show it unless you are intending on using it I believe haha. I keep an extremely high powered Beretta M9 clone pellet pistol in the console, but I was in my dads WK. But yeah it probably made him even more angry that I ripped out in front of him after he tried to cut me off, the HEMI did its job wonderfully.

Yeah, if you pay more than $20-25 for an oil change, you are paying too much. I take it to Pep Boys and they usually have some deal or coupon to do it for $20. Even if they don't, I complain to the manager and they usually give me a deal.

If I were to buy the Oil and Filter, that alone is about $20. I usually like to do everything myself.. because I don't really trust anyone else to touch my Jeep, but I think its worth it.

Is it the one with the nipple? If so then I can take it off your hands

High powered and M9 (9mm) don't belong in the same sentence!

I actually have to renew my ccw permit tomorrow. Well I have to take the picture, it's already renewed. Great gun laws here in PA! My glock 30 likes going for rides in the jeep, haha.

Ok it was a very productive day for me and Optimus Prime.

Picked up a set of srt8 headers for $50

(Those aren't my ugly sneakers)

Stopped at Quadratec on the way home and got some Smittybuilt 3/4" D-Rings and blue daystar isolators.

You'll notice my intune in the picture above. I included it because I got 24 mpg

On my 60 mile return trip

It's been a good day and an awesome week for Optimus Prime!

Decided I'm going to hold on to my Fumoto valve. Yes, it IS the one with the nipple (106N). I only paid like $25 for it on Amazon, but I'm thinking I can get some real mileage out of it as barter here on the Forum.

In the meantime I'm keenly watching all the SRT8 headers show up. Nothing I can do now but watch, my 2010 still has 60k miles of warranty left. But when that 100,000 mile anniversary comes, I'm going to treat my girl to headers and a high-flow muffler and never mind the Cats.

Hahaha you are very right there, but for a pellet gun this thing is no joke haha. Only 17 so an Unrestricted Class A isn't an option yet haha

Sounds like a good plan! That's what I was waiting for too Also from what I understand the SRT manifolds will mate up better on the '09-'10 WK 5.7L better than the older one because they have the same port shape as the 6.1L. Oh and the stock cats are actually high flow so you may as well keep them.

Ha try Alaska. I don't even need a ccw permit. I can open or conceal carry. I just can't drive on base with a firearm.
