    So, I kinda hate my self for it, but Im thinking about getting a Tonneau cover for my 2019 Ram 1500. I've had a hard cover that hinged up, on a work truck before, and hated it.

    What type of gate openers do yall recommend for a 16 ft steel tube gate? Its about 200 ft from power, and I would probably do solar, just to make it easy. Gate will most likely open out, cause drive comes uphill. I think my truck can be programmed with button (2019 Ram) but wife's car is...

    Cheap bolt action rifles for son

    My 12 yr old son is wanting a new gun. He has a single shot .410 already, and doesn't really want a .22 LR. It would be 90% target shooting at 25-100 yards for now, and 10% deer/possibly one day hog hunting. My thoughts on calibers are .223, 5.56, .243 Win, 7.62x39, or 6.5 Grendel. Recoil...
