    Help identifying the age of my Don Carlos Sampler

    Hello brothers! It's been a long time and when I decided to come here for some help I realized how much I miss this place:) I have a Don Carlos sampler with the Lancero and 7 other sticks. I think I bought it 11 or 12 years ago but can't remember because I have CRS. I called Tampa...

    How to handle an unfortunate situation?

    Good morning: I ordered 10 boxes of ISOM's and things didn't go so well. A box of 9 (3x3) Partagas Culebra are moldy and look terrible, a box containing two bundles of QyH Favoritos arrived smashed from being very poorly packaged, and the packaging in general was poor resulting in a few PSD4...

    Death, taxes, and the Bengals

    There are very few certainties in life. In life itself, it's death! In our struggles to be successful, it's taxes! In the NFL, it's the Bengals! And the Cowboys....... If there are two leading underachieving teams over the recent history of the NFL it's the Cowboys and Bengals, or is it the...

    The Pittsburgh Steelers

    The Steelers traded Santonio Holmes today for a 5th round pick to the Jets. At first I thought "a fifth round pick" but after some thought it makes me proud to be a Steeler fan! This sends a message to the players that Pittsburgh is not the place to act like idiots and it certainly isn't...

    Nice little burr!

    I have tried four different burr grinders and finally found one that is a pretty good deal for what I use it for. THIS Black & Decker unit was $25 at Target and it works far better than the two Cuisinart units I had at a lot less money. The knock on this little guy is that it won't grind fine...

    Any .223 varmint/target shooters out there?

    Just bought the Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .223 and love shooting it! I can't wait till I find the ammo that groups best in it as this thing should a be a tack driver. I need a bi-pod for it and will probably get a better scope eventually. If anyone has an advice on ammo or experience with...

    Any roofing guys out there?

    I need some guidance regarding an issue I am having at my cabin. As I said this requires some out of the box thinking. Here is the scenario: My cabin is used frequently but not enough to justify heating it all the time so it gets winterized every time I leave in cold weather, why does this...
