    [–] Zipping problem : please help me fix it, it's urgent. FightingRobots2 2 points ago in fixit

    Cut away the ripped up cloth. After that you can try to force the zipper back on to the track but it usually doesn’t work very well. If you can get it back on right zip it and see the ends of the track together to keep it from coming back off.

    [–] Winter Glove choice FightingRobots2 1 points ago in CCW

    I can’t find the same brand I had but I’m about to replace some half finger gloves/mittens that my dog chewed on. they were similar to these but made of wool with thinsulate. I used them hunting when I needed my hands to be free enough to use calls.

    I saw on another post that you were wanting to publish this. I hope you do. I’d happily buy a copy. Hardback, paperback or ebook.

    [–] What's the biggest waste of money that people dont realize is a waste? FightingRobots2 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I have saved so much on razor blades since growing a beard. Best decision made out of laziness ever.

    Just ate a $3.50 vending machine burger. Honestly it wasn’t that bad. Big Az makes some decent crappy sandwiches.

    [–] I need to conceal my SIG P320 Compact better. FightingRobots2 3 points ago in CCW

    Honestly it’s probably better for your back anyway.

    [–] Between a Sig p365 and M&P Shield 2.0 for my first CCW FightingRobots2 3 points ago in CCW

    I do hate this with the 365. They could have done it right. If any company could have, SIG could have. It’s not like they don’t have enough money coming in for decent research and development or QC.

    [–] Between a Sig p365 and M&P Shield 2.0 for my first CCW FightingRobots2 2 points ago in CCW

    It does seem to be the single most popular carry weapon on here. I’m not crazy about it myself but was happy to lose a little capacity and go for an EC9s.

    Either way I’m not risking it on the p365 or any other poly SIGS for quite a while. When buying a gun for personal defense I’m looking for reliability, not a clusterfuck of “oh hey we fixed it” and “hey mine’s doing just fine”.

    [–] Between a Sig p365 and M&P Shield 2.0 for my first CCW FightingRobots2 12 points ago in CCW

    As a SIG guy, get the shield.

    There’s no way I’m carrying anything that has had such horrible quality control. That would be like paying SIG prices and getting a Taurus.

    Alternatively, look in to some other brands and models. There are more than 2 guns right around that size and available in 9mm.

    I checked Wikipedia. There was a Hispanic guy from the Dominican Republic so that could be him. They may have also had a few white officers. Then again I’m pretty sure pilots have to be officers.

    I’m pretty sure the anniversary of the bombing was in the last couple of days.

    Thank you, you wonderful cunt.

    [–] Temporarily seal a cracked tire sidewall (mower, not car) FightingRobots2 1 points ago in fixit

    There is a chance that you can find an inner tube to fit it. If you have a bill to deal with or a lot of bumps I don’t suggest it. I also don’t suggest turning very sharp as that may push the tire off of the rim but I have had good luck with inner tubes in the tires of the trailer I pull behind my mower. That being said, by the time you get the tire half way off to put the tube in you might as well just pull it the rest of the way off and put a new tire on there. It’s not hard to put a tire on something like this, just takes some time and a few flat headed screwdrivers. Be careful not to bend the rim. Also when you do actually replace the tire I have always wrapped a piece of webbing around the radius and used a hammer or large wrench to tighten it like a tourniquet. This will help you seal the tire to the rim when putting air in. You can probably find a video on YouTube to give an example of that method.

    I got to meet a few of them a couple of times. They did a thing at the 16th street baptist church in Birmingham for a few years. That was always great getting to see those guys.

    [–] How to get the smell of cigarette smoke out of a house? FightingRobots2 5 points ago in fixit

    Try renting a carpet cleaner if there’s any carpet in the house. If there was any furniture left by the previous resident just get rid of it. Even after that the smell may be there for a while. Febreeze does some good but it’s not the best. Maybe some baking soda?
