    Ordered this tonight off gunpost.

    Remington Nylon 66. Was the first gun I had as a kid. My dad gave it to me. Amazing little tube fed .22. self lubricating and they are now collectors items.
    After he passed my mom got rid of all the guns in the house cause of the gun laws are the time. The big registration stuff from Chretien.

    Saw one on there and had to get it. Going to teach Parker with it.

    I got Da'Bomb in my eye once. I accidentally rub my eye with my knuckle. It was more than enough.

    Garden hose to the eye ball for 10 minutes only temporarily helped.

    Classic 22 they are a nice light little rifle. That will be a great chicken gun.
    I have all the guns I had as a kid and will never sell

    Wish I could say the same. Had a kick ass little 4.10 that my dad gifted me as well.
    One of my biggest wishes is to have some of my father's rifles. But alas, my mother didn't understand when he passed and feared the regulations. And I was too naive to do any different at that point .

    That being said...Can't wait to give this to parker for his birthday and teach him how to use it safely and make memories with him!

    That's the best thing you can do to teach them gun safety at a young age so it will stick with them so they won't turn into a gun fearing Hairyass, it's just embarrassing.

    I had a pellet gun to start my learning. Once I showed I could safely handle that my father stepped me up to a .22 and then 4.10 the next year. I was not allowed to touch them without him around. And he kept them locked in the safe. I take it very seriously, and expect the same of my boys.

    I have the same one on my mower and love it, our compost is going full tilt with the grass clippings and the lawn looks so much better.

    I remember going to the barber shop my Uncle owned with my dad back in the 70's. When Dad was sitting in the chair my brother and I used to sneak peaks at the Play Boy magazines that were on the coffee table. Barber Shops aren't what they used to be :happysad:

    ridgid brushless oscilator. i was weary going to battery osc from plug in, but it works extremely well, is lighter and i think more powerful than my porter cable unit.

    2x4's are down to 5.50 a stick at the orange store! crazy like a 40% drop in a month.
    anyways its affordable to build stuff again.
    - 6 more sheets of sonopan, 6 sheets of 1/2 drywall, couple more bags of rockwool.

    Lodge Grill press - this thing is a game changer if you're into homemade burgers on the grill
    Anemometer
    new n95 replacements for the 3m mask
    cabinet handles

    I have had 10 different sets of mirrors on my Z1000, bar end, stock, etc

    they all suck, so just find a set you like the look of and be done with it.

    shoulder checks instead of mirror checks from now on

    i put bar ends on and lost my left side on the ride home Friday night because the bolt that secured it backed off with the vibrations, now I have other bar ends on that are a bit more quality feeling but yeah, visibility out of them is trash.

    Ride around with the right one on the left side all weekend and just shoulder checked like crazy.


    Bar ends and fender eliminator are the only two mods the bike needs aesthetically, it’s perfect from the factory otherwise

    I had absolutely no issue with bar ends on my Z1000 once I put renthal bars on it. The stock ones sucked balls though.
