If you love F-bodies and drag racing, autocross or road courses....go do this event. I've been a few times and you can't find a better group of gearheads and friends to help you play with cars.

It's in Memphis and the info is on the event page.

Are there any computer programmers or message board guys in the house? Iím getting notifications from the hosting provider saying they are seeing potentially malicious script files on the server. They appear to be standard board files. I donít know if they have moved away from the design of this board, or if there are other issues. However, they are threatening to shut the board down for ďsafetyĒ.

I checked with IPS about getting the latest update done (it used to cost like $25 and they would do the update). They advised me that Iíd have to upgrade to a version in the 3.x.x range and then upgrade to the new ďcommunityĒ version. The license is $200 and the labor is $625. I donít believe Iím good enough to do this upgrade without possibly losing the database. I also donít want the board shut down. So, Iím looking for options.

One other option would be to change to different software. I discussed that ten years ago but I donít know if thereís anything out there that will migrate from this old version of the software and it has to be stable and worth using.

So, Iím open to ideas (or possibly donations).

Any thoughts?

I've had a lot of people ask how to donate a few dollars to keep the site up and running.

First, this is absolutely not necessary and I truly mean that.

However, for those who truly wish to help out...I really appreciate it. Paypal is the best option and you can paypal me at:

trackbird (at) gmail dot com (obviously the (at) is an @ and the "dot" is a .)

Again, it's truly not required, but I do appreciate those who wish to help out if you truly wish to do so.

Thanks!

Hey guys, most of you know we are pretty avid shooters and mid pack shooting sports competitors. I also help at a friends gun shop. Thus, stuff follows me home sometimes. I've reached a point where I need to thin down my inventory a bit and make room to rotate some stock. I have parts and pieces and guns (some unfired/new in the box and some used stuff...I'll note which are which).


Benelli M4 factory 5 shot magazine tube with the factory 2 round spacer. These were removed (used) from my M4 when I did a 922r legal conversion to a 7 shot magazine tube.

$60 plus $8 freight


Sig 320 full size grip modules and factory sig paddle holsters. I have two sets. One grip module may have made one range trip, one was removed from a brand new pistol and never fired. I can't tell them apart. Both are basically brand new.

$35 each (grip and holster) and $6 freight. Buy both and I'll pay freight.


Benelli M4 factory trigger parts (trigger, disconnector, hammer and springs) from my M4. Used, worked perfectly. Removed for 922r legal conversion.

$69 plus $5 freight


CZ75 factory black checkered grips. Removed from a brand new CZ75 before it was fired. These are basically new OEM grips.

$18 and $4 freight


All firearms must be transferred through a dealer and follow all applicable laws. Not for sale where illegal.


S&W Model 41 (22 LR). I believe this is a roughly 1971 version. It's an A serial number and still has the cocking indicator. I bought this one unfired and we've had it out over the years, though it has fairly low round count. The finish is excellent and it's in extremely good condition. I also have twelve magazines for it. Ten are factory 12 round and they are used (I've had a couple of these guns and I used to shoot a version I had built by Clark Custom Guns in competition and I had a ton of mags for it) and two are brand new 10 round mags that are still sealed in their packages. These pistols feel like they are running on ball bearings. They are the most amazingly fitted 22 pistols, I can't say enough good things about them. But, we set up an S&W Victory 22 for competitions and we never take this out to the range anymore. So it's looking for a good home.

$1250 OBO Plus $35 freight


Kahr CT9 (9mm), brand new in the box (never cleaned or fired, still has the factory anti corrosive shipping coating). I bought this new at the shop where I work and never got a chance to shoot it. It only came with one mag. It has standard sights (not night sights). Comes in the factory case.

$299 and $35 freight OBO


Ruger LC9s compact/ccw 9mm pistol. These are fantastic pistols. This one is brand new, it's never been fired or cleaned. I just hung it in the safe right out of the box. It includes 3 mags (also new in the box).

$299 plus $30 freight


Springfield XDm 5.25" Competition in 45 ACP. This pistol was built by a local gunsmith and has a complete Powder River competition kit in it and a stainless guide rod and a Talon Grips grip added. This is one of the most accurate 45's I've ever shot. Most new shooters would shoot one hole groups with it by the end of their first day. It's amazing. It also has eight 13 round magazines with it. Comes in the factory case.

$699 plus $35 freight


I have a new/unfired/never cleaned 9mm Sig 226 MK25-10 (it came with three 10 round mags from the factory). It has factory night sights. I'm not dying to sell this one. I already have a Grayguns PSAIT trigger, Grayguns action spring kit and a Grayguns "FAT" black finish guide rod for it as well as a Grayguns SRT kit with their billet (and coated) sear and the new version with the coated safety lever that's made by Grayguns. That's about $190+ in Grayguns parts plus the pistol. I can install all of the GGI parts and send the stock parts with it if you prefer. Comes in the factory case.

$1099 plus $35 freight. (with all the GGI parts installed, $899 without them).

I have some other stuff I might add like an S&W revolver that was built by Cylinder and Slide (with an insane trigger job), an XDm competition 9mm built with Powder River parts, but for now I'm headed to bed. Pics on request. If you want to see anything, post your email and what you'd like pics of below, or send me a PM.

Thanks!

About 6-7 months ago my truck started locking and unlocking the doors on the way into work. SOme research suggested a bad battery in the keyfob. I swapped the battery and it was fixed....for a while. A couple days ago I went to an HOA meeting and got out and hit the lock button and it unlocked. The next few times I hit lock it did the same thing. Then it finally locked. I assumed it was ok. The next morning on my way to work it was constantly unlocking the doors. I removed the battery when I got to the parking lot and locked the truck. When I removed the battery, I touched it to the contacts a few times and it unlocked the truck each time. So I tried a new battery when I got home and it was still unlocking the truck without any keys being pressed. It appears that I need a keyfob. I'm finding what look like crappy ones on amazon and the online dealers seem to want over $200. I need to check with my local dealer and see what they charge.

Also, if I find one, is there a way to program them without paying the dealer to do so?
