My kids have offered to hide them for me. They'd get home from school and I'd get a text asking if mom knows and where do I stash it lol. I've never done that, that came up with that one on their own

I also would say, how many cartons of cigarettes you buy in a month, 2!!! I'm entitled for a new marker every 8 months lol.

Did it hurt? Wearing a mask or no?

Advice I can give is, don't buy a house with a mountain of grass. It's a ***** to mow upwards. Got a wall, cost us 3k but much more space gained afterwards.
Oh, knock on every walls in the house. Didn't do it until after we bought the house. Started painting the nursery room, turned around, the specific area of the wall bubbled. I'm like wtf?? I didnt use too much paint. Turns out there was a leak behind the drywall coming from the roof. Knocked the drywall down, mold everywhere. Got it all sorted out, brand new roof, all for free. Rest of the house was pretty much excellent condition since it was only 1 owner. So knock on every walls and you want to hear and feel a nice knock, not a soft/wet thud.

This I say to my wife to avoid New Paintball Marker Detection:
1) Buy them within the same company (hence all my Marqs).
2) Buy them more or less the same color
3) Tell her I traded with some (insert friends name here) and make sure he is in on it.
4) Tell her I just bought a body Kit.
5) Tell her it is not mine, I'm just fixing it for a friend.
6) Actually buy one every 2 or 3 Years to throw off suspicion and show her that I sold the prior one.


EDIT: bring a rubber ball and place it in the middle of a big room if it moves quickly in any direction you might have to re-do foundation

Dam I hope your face didn't damage the bolt too bad.

As for buying a house.
Age of the House?
Age of the Essentials (wiring, plumbing, roof, Boiler/Heater, Windows)
Ask about; any foundation issues, flooding of the area the house is located, ZONING (commercial or Residential or Mixed. you don't want them building a factory next to your house 6 months later), schools.
Neighborhood status (Low, middle, upper middle income)

If you ask any question and they deflect, gently walk towards the door.

Which marker are we talking about here?

I had a digi camo victory for a very short stint. My wheels got stolen and making matters worse, it wasnt covered by state farm due to their mistake. So I had to sell the Victory ASAP to get my car back up and running.

I'm investing into getting a V2 Victory. It just felt right in my hands and my posture. I hope I don see these problems on the Victory. I know about the backcap problem. Either superglue the magnets or just wrap the body and frame with electrical tape, securing the backcap down.

I had my mask on, middle of the game, the air venting out the back was a little shocking.

Thanks for the home buying advice though, Ill be knocking on every wall I find Wet thud = punching the realtor in the face....

1,3,5 I have all done with limited success...

What if the ball in the center of the room just SPINS

The bolt is fine and my face is fine but my feelings are hurt, hope that makes you feel like a tough man sitting behind your computer.....

I didnt even think about zoning but that is a great point!! Thanks guys for all the advice so far and keep it coming please!!!

If ball just spins just

LOL I know how you roll

The neighborhood income is also important. You want people who have a little something. They would care more about what their property value is at and do upkeep on the appearances.

whats the percentage of renters in the area. High percentage of renters = people who don't care much about the property or absentee landlord

We are actually renting a house. Have been for the past year ish and it is in the "Nice" part of town. I don't mind paying for location.

Project today - fixing the lawnmower. Throwing the dogs in the 4runner and heading to Ace....

Craftsman. Bought it used for like 50 bucks. Been running great. A bolt fell out of the actually push handle so 98 cents later I'm back up and running.

And I run mine on 93.1

lol it's like 20 cents more a gallon, and I thought why the hell not.

First year I had my snow blower I ran over a broom. It broke the sheer pins, and was like 80 cents to replace them all. Sometimes **** is stupid cheap to fix

I know. Gotta love going to your local screw store. Buying a entire screw set for, well at the time my vice and the guy was like 5.4...... Ah don't worry about it. Winning.

Update about the Closer backcap, I guess I had the older design. I got a new one (29.99 dollars later.) on the way which is supposed to be much more sturdy. So kudos? I still kinda feel like a mechanical failure like that should be covered under warranty especially since they had to re-design it anyways...
