The Nissan JUKE is one of my all time favorite cars. Even if you include the plethora of super and hyper car exotica out there, the JUKE still makes my top 10. You may wonder how it is that I can’t find ten exotic cars that I’d want more than […]
It’s funny at times how little people seems to consciously understand about their car and what about it is important. Fancy features in the cabin keep you cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and comfortable and entertained on your long journeys. Your engine, and its many associated components, […]
After a decade of interest in firearms I finally acquired enough knowledge and experience to graduate from being a novice shooter, to one of intermediate experience and advanced knowledge. I had owned dozens of airsoft guns with the mindset that they were more replica firearms than toys. I had been […]
Firearms have been a growing and evolving interest of mine since I was about 7 years old. One of my most distant memories is actually of sitting at Joan and Ed’s Deli Restaurant in Natick, where they would give kids a box of crayons and a paper place mat that […]
Since my Subaru STi got back on the road in early June, it’s been running well; It has been better and better as it’s been tweaked and modified over the 6 weeks. Of course victory with an STi is never complete and does not come without issues.
After my 2005 Subaru STi’s engine failure in October 2010, the car limped around under 3,000RPM for three more months, before it came off the road at the end of December. The motor swap was expected to be a relatively simple matter of pulling it from the car, replacing the […]
Lets start with Front Wheel Drive (FWD), the poster child for uselessness. In terms of everyday practicality and useability in adverse weather conditions, it could be worse, but it’s not even close to the best.
The May 15th Run and Gun followed the BlackSheep6 Squad Tactics Training Course one day prior. There my fireteam and I had learned some great skills to implement during the Run and Gun.
Throughout my entire Airsoft career, the biggest problem I’ve had, personally and while leading a squad, is a lack of proven tactics. Lacking effective tactics, I have always resorted to my rifle’s extreme range and accuracy to take out enemies and get kills. Once things get up close and personal, […]
We all know the classic view of marriage. Everyone jokes about it and many believe it. Marriage is the bane of your existence 95% of the time, but the 5% of the time that it works, it makes it all worth while. My car is much the same way, as […]
Since I started my Airsoft career in the 2006 season, the NEASG Sniper Qualification has been something of a myth to my teammates and me. We’d never met anyone who was sniper certified and had never even seen official literature or heard official word on what it entailed or what […]
I have a great understanding of vehicle dynamics and car control for my age and experience level. For a number of years now I have been reading about car control techniques. I knew, in theory, how to double clutch rev match before I even learned to drive stick. Owning my […]
Emergencies come in all forms and can happen at any time. Many people have a single type of emergency in mind when they think of a home emergency. For some, it may be a home fire, a gas leak, or maybe a natural disaster like a tornado. For others, it […]
When Operation Squirrel Hunt took place at Feel Good Farm on April 17th, I was in Orlando, FL on business. Having apparently missed a superb Op, I came back from Florida with a bad sunburn and a lowered immune system as a result. Over the following two weeks I have […]
I came on board with Marlboro Nissan in early summer of 2009. Now, coming up on summer 2011, I’ve learned quite a bit about Automotive Digital Marketing under Tim Martell. For at least the last year, my job has almost exclusively been in blogging, PR, article writing, and SEO. It’s […]
I have fuzzy memories of my air travel experiences when I was young, but I remember them being exciting. Things were complimentary on nearly all airlines, from blankets to headphones, to snacks and meals which were part of the price of your ticket. Now you’re lucky to get a drink […]
Sunday April 3rd marked the opening day of the 2011 airsoft season at Feel Good Farm. It was a Run and Gun event, as well as a swap meet. Swap meets are when people are encouraged to set up a table by their car with any and all gear they […]
We’ve all said it. “Someday I’ll start going to the gym.” “Someday I’ll go back to school and get that degree.” “Someday I’ll start eating better.” “Someday I’ll start getting out more to do interesting things.” Sometimes we replace ‘someday’ with ‘sometime soon.’ Sometimes when we say ‘someday’ we mean […]
When was the last time you sat, legs dangling over the road and both hands occupied, in the trunk of a minivan as it bounded down a narrow road at 40mph? For me it was in fall of 2010, with five grand in camera equipment in my hands. What was […]
Very few of you are likely to have any real understanding of the inner workings of an electric airsoft rifle. Those with a little knowledge might know that you have a set of gears, driven by a motor. Those gears move a piston which, when released, uses spring tension to […]
