    My shooting objectives are similar to yours, minus the lousy weather.

    If I were to cover it all with one 22lr and one shotgun, I would go with a 12ga remington 870 wingmaster and a Henry 22lr...

    At first pass, this appears to be a quality offering at a good price.

    Look forward to reading user reviews as these become available.

    Go with a late model E350. Shorter wheelbase and more robust frame and body than GM.

    The V10 is an excellent motor. Very reliable and plenty of power. Lousy MPG is the only downside, but you...

    That is a very nice looking rig.

    And very reasonably priced versus comparables in that high end category.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Just curious, specifically what parts are you waiting for?

    I have a 2010 outback that has been a stellar car, with great MPG. But I am not aware of much (any?) mod potential for recent model year...

    MMD's sarcastic comment was out of line and worthy of being called out. I get, and value, the ideals about public forum and free speech. But geez, don't be so high minded that you cannot flag a...

    I'm confident that Jeep knows a lot more about how to sell a bunch of Wranglers than those of us on this forum.

    What is available today is there because that is what sales. Weak sellers meet...

    I like what Jeep is trying to do with both the Cherokee and the Renegade. They are aimed at the Outback buyer base and I think that Jeep can win market share in that segment. Of course the off road...

    Your interpretation of the emergency use clause assumes quite a bit that is nowhere to be found in the clause itself.

    No mention of "life or death emergency", just "safety". And careful readers...

    My assumptions and feelings as well.

    The repeaters in my area are dead zones, except for some occasional inane banter between a couple of crusty guys.

    I have the same anecdotes. When in the backcountry and remote areas, I don't see any MTB riders.

    But on trails within 10 miles of an urban area, I cannot count all the MTB riders. They are...

    Certainly true if you are focused on long distance back country travel, nor surprising given the limited range of a person pedaling versus any motorized vehicle.

    Everything about the xr400 works for me. Simple, reliable, tough, lots of torque, etc.... I was sorry to see Honda kill the XR in 2004, but I do appreciate that it...

    I'm especially curious about ride height since I need to park in an underground garage.
