Really nice buy! I’ve seen Hickok45 review these several times on his YT channel over the past few years, but I don’t remember seeing a review with this lightweight build.My wife thought it would be a good time to get a concealed carry gun. We have several handguns and had spent most weekends at the range for years but not much lately. But all we had were large target types, so nothing remotely concealable.
The typical concealed is a micro 9mm pistol. So, we trialed a bunch of those. Came close to buying a SIG but at the last minute discovered S&W makes a J-frame revolver out of Scandium with a Titanium cylinder. Weighs about half as much as a micro 9 and about 1/6 as much as our target guns. Just 11.4 oz. First time Susan held it, she said hard to believe this is made of metal. It doesn't even feel as heavy as plastic!
We bought it Thursday (only one in Arizona) and broke it in. Feels good in our hands, points naturally and has a smooth trigger.
Liked how they inscribed what I suspect is supposed to be a Scandium atom, but it has the wrong number of outer valence electrons.
Won't go into the pros and cons of pistols vs revolvers. Figure anyone reading already knows or doesn't care.
Very nice! What's in your build?View attachment 143364
Needed a new (to me) PC since I've always been a Mac user, but recently got into Virtual Pinball so had to pick something up. It's not top of the line.. but it'll do the trick for me.
Very nice! What's in your build?
Fortunately, I'm incapable of precision work!That would be a lot easier to work with than my old "level it yourself" Craftsman laser level. They also sell a green laser.. wonder which is easier to see. I never found the Craftsman lines crisp enough for precision work.
That's cool.Sometimes I impulse buy.
This light saber was love at first sight:

But... it didn't work.
And the 2nd time I pressed the button, it fell out!

But turns out it was really a tripod, so not a total loss.

The "trigger" is actually a Bluetooth remote shutter.
Seriously though, I ordered a 24" light box (arriving soon). I wanted a small tripod to use with that.
Nice! I like Anker products.Oh also picked up this portable 256Wh power station, because reasons We'll call it storm backup and tailgating power, since we really don't camp, which it would be perfect for.
While assembling the garage cabinets (few posts back) I discovered a problem with a laser level I had.
The bad news was I actually assumed the laser was aimed parallel to the level it was built into.
The good news was I had never used the laser part. Was shopping for a level and one with a built in laser was just a few dollars more, so why not.
Was partly luck that I realized the laser was aimed wrong.
So, I ordered a self-leveling laser. Laser is on a pendulum that settles in about 5 seconds. I need an accurate laser to build a perfectly level platform on the sloping garage floor to put the cabinets on. Come with something to attach it to just about anything to get a desired height.

Don't look directly into the laser.
