DoubleStar ARP7 5.56 AR Pistol & Big Timber Brake Review – VIDEO

YouTube personality, Graham Baates, gives us a video review of the DoubleStar ARP7 5.56 AR Pistol. USA – -(Ammoland.com)- AR Pistols are nothing new.  They generally create a lot of lot of noise and a giant fireball while spewing only marginally-stabilized bullets.  AR Pistols are loads of fun when fun is the goal but I hadn't been impressed much with one until I handled the DoubleStar ARP7 at a writer event.  I was fortunate to get one in for testing and review, so let's take a look at what ma...

Humor for the Heartbroken

Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.  ~ Matt Groening Social psychologist Daniel Gilbert of Harvard University said, “In many ways, navigating the social world is more complicated than a voyage to the moon. But it’s a journey we have to take, because whether we like it or not, our happiness is in each other’s hands.” Our sadness is also in each other’s hands, and is most easily induced by those ...

Walmart/Kobo – Meh?

I went to the second Walmart that put up a Kobo display. Although they finally (after about a month and a half) got electricity to the video display, there's still no Kobo Aura or tablet in the clamps. Just the book and gift cards and the video playing in the background. Going into Black Friday, Walmart has four of the five current Kobos on sale, but are missing the Forma (sold out). But they only show three of them on the Kobo page. If you go to their Kobo device link, you wouldn't know the Ko...

Max 2 Pro monitor mode

Hello, I upgraded from Onyx Box Max 2 (2 GB RAM) to the Onyx Boox Max 2 Pro Limited Edition (4 GB RAM, 64GB storage) today. Comparing the Onyx Boox Max 2 with the Onyx Boox Max 2 Pro in the monitor mode with my MacBook Pro Retina late 2013, I noticed a significant improvement in speed. There is still some lag when using the mouse but I am happier with the improvement in the quality. The screen looks less grainy. :) If there is someone wondering if the extra RAM would make a difference, I can s...

Owl upcycled wood candle holders

One of my favorite ways to decorate for the holidays is with light, and candles are an easy and inexpensive way to add holiday warmth to any home. I love creating unique holders to match the season and our decor, and this year I wanted to create something rustic and a little quirky for my mantle. I decided to upcycle some wood from my scrap pile, and chose some nice chunky 4×4 posts. They were the perfect start to a salvaged wood project, and just needed a little paint and imagination.
