    LOL about you not using hollow points. :lol3

    That guy was hardcore! At least he had good taste and used a 1911 model. I think he may have been a bit over the top. I feel for these parents in this age of Facebook etc, it's got to be tough. I think all teens say bad stuff about their parents, I know I did. Thank goodness we didnt have internet and all that crap growing up.

    Wet indeed. Yes sir, the TKC80 sucks on wet pavement. I don't care to ever own another one.

    Meh I love my TKC's. IMO it works great everywhere. I spent a few hundred miles riding in rain on slab the last couple years in CO and I couldnt get them to break loose most of the time.

    I see them pop up on Craigslist all the time. you should be able to find say a 6X10 in great shape for $1200-1500. Older, weathered ones in the $1K range. With a little work and not much money you can make one into a real nice overnight camping setup like I've done with mine.

    I'll post some pics later to day. We also have a Coopers Hawk that enjoys the bird buffet we provide.

    Why am I not surprised you're a fan of the 1911, they are pretty much the Harley Davidson of the gun world. :rofl

    all you have to do is use your rear break when coming to stop at a busy intersection, slides every time.

    Gus like Albie said Craigslist will be your friend when enclosed trailer shopping. I did see some really good deals on new ones somewhere in the Alma area. I've got a 6X12 that I bought about 10 years ago and I couldnt live without it.

    Do look for a lightweight aluminum skinned one, I've pulled some all steel ones and man theyre heavy.

    when I was 11, I shot a dove , with a BB gun, took it home, cleaned it, and cooked it, and ate it.

    never eaten a sap sucker, but my grandfather told me about eating black birds, said they tasted terrible, but they were poor.

    Likely a combination of factors, you know..

    they do say that you are what you eat, which would explain me being a puss, it would also explain why you resemble a bowl of dicks.

    Never had an issue, I would assume any rear tire will slide in wet hammering the rear brake.

    once they get about 1000 miles on them, I pretty much stop using my rear brake.

    when i swapped to that shinko I used the rear brake one day, and came to the realization that I had completely stopped using the rear on pavement with the tkc.

    the tkc slides easier than any tire that I have used on wet pavement.
