    How many magazines?

    I have a weird count for my Ar and 1911 pistols. 11 mags each. 1 in the gun and 10 loaded spares. For my M1 garand that gets a little fun because yes I have loaded clips and lots of them. I have somewhere north of 150 loaded clips for the garand. Most of my other firearms are even more vintage and not worth keeping either loaded mags or high quantities of them, either 1 or 2 mags per gun depending on cost. BTW, here is what 1008 rounds of .30-06 looks like when loaded into 126, 8round garand clips.

    $20 shipping for $25 t-shirt

    I have 3 ducatis and not a single piece of Dainese gear. I don't like coffee or espresso. I make a very poor example for the stereotype.

    Where to order Ducati parts?

    Oh do I have some Multistrada eye candy for you on top of the other suggestions above. http://shift-tech-carbon.com/onlineshop/index.php?cPath=1_110 https://evotech-performance.com/collections/ducati-multistrada-1200-motorcycle-parts/YEAR_2016

    YaOT (Yet another oil thread)

    Shell Advance 4-T comes in a 15W-50. I got mine at the Advance auto in Reynoldsburg. I have used it in my Multi as both the workshop and the owners manual only call for a 15W-50, they don't have a temp range chart like the other bikes. All my other Ducati's and when I had the Triumph all got regular 10W-40.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Apologize for polluting a motorcycle thread with a post of a 4 wheeled variety ? but not many threads to show off progress on a car and wasn't worth it's own thread. Got my '87 Grand National back from paint last Friday and working to put the rest of the refurbished/new interior parts back in it. It's starting to look like a classic again.

    I have this day off and it's on my schedule now. Planning to attend.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I pulled the fairly blah looking rubber coolant hoses off the bike and replaced them with some nice red silicone bling.

    Pocket knife obsession

    I have 3 Kershaw knives. Good quality for the price. A pair of the mid sized Leek models with 2 different serration styles and then a larger Shallot with the Damascus blade. I have unfortunately not done a great job of caring for the damascus blade and one of these days I am going to need to polish the thing to get the rust off and then redo the acid dip to get the layers to really stand out again. It's the only drawback of everyday carry with a carbon bladed knife is making sure to keep it oiled.

    Funny picture thread.

    This one hits hard on so many levels.

    Let's see your $100 (or less) handguns

    Rifles seem to be much easier to get for under a 100 bucks if you look hard enough. I have gotten an SKS, 2 British Enfields, a Mosin and a really old Steyr for under a hundred each. Here is the picture of that CZ I mentioned before.

    Which sport tourer is best sport tourer?

    Only parts of the forum trailer. There are people on here that still actually ride. Here is a picture of my Sprint ST when I rode it out to Eureka Springs Arkansas and back. We stopped at Bull Shoals for a break and a buddy got a cool picture of me.

    Which sport tourer is best sport tourer?

    Kinda have to agree with Pokey on this one. My Multistrada 1200 with the right rider would keep up with superbikes and no problems staying in front of the 600-800cc crowd. It is as good of a sport-touring bike as any I have owned or ridden even if shoe-horned into the ADV category. Granted the price isn't going to win over as many people as the Japanese options but I certainly don't regret buying it.

    What i did in guns.

    Huh, not sure that I would buy one but that's still kinda cool. I have an original Underwood manufactured WWII gun to ease the itch for a carbine.
