I would agree with this. I also participate in the Marlin Owners Group and it uses the same forum software its been getting spammed with new members asking off the wall questions in first posts. Very weird.I seem to be noticing more trouble makers similar to that one lately. On a number of the company's forums. Beginning to wonder about that.
Yeah, buddy! Giant step closer to getting the battle burban rolling again. Now my brain is trying to convince my wallet to buy a super charger and a 6.0... I mean it's built to handle 650hp, why not give the old 300 stock horses a bit of a boost...

We are seeing a lot of that over on Firearms Talk. And a few listing gun for sale on first post.I would agree with this.

Same hp, really. Depends on the setup. It's fuel efficiency for turbos and ease of installation for super chargers that are the deciding factors. Both systems need a pro tuner, high flow exhaust and headers, a better throttle body, a throttle body spacer plate, and a few other things to function properly.Nitrous! Cheap to add, instant HP! I would go turbo before blower... with a good intercooler more HP for the $$
Right now I'm doing my first attempt at powder coating some old lead bullets I had laying around.Hot damn! Great weather forecast today, and it's time to clean out the garden(s) and assess whether winter damaged the house. Yesterday I poured two 4' footings for one of the porches, and I'll be replacing a rotted wood column with one of those new-fangled composite jobbies - those things are amazing! Happy Saturday everyone!
I have to get my shack put back together after taking it all down to do the remodeling of the house. I never did any EME on 2m/70cm but always wanted to. The 1.2ghz is something I haven't really looked into.Doing some layout on aluminum tubing/plate before drilling and tapping 20 or so 4-40 screw holes. Also need to layout some notches I need to cut in the 15" x 5.75" x .25" plate. Building a dish antenna feed horn. The part of the ham radio hobby I really enjoy, designing and building stuff. Working on the design for the dish mount, 7 foot diameter satellite dish I will use to bounce 1.2ghz signals off the moon.
I am looking at 10ghz! Put a small 1 meter dish in the center of the 2 meter beams for terrestrial, make the feed mount a quick change to swap between 1.2 and 10ghz. After 1.2 10ghz is the next most active microwave ham band. On 1.2ghz I will have 550 watts of power and from the dish that equals 1.68 megawatts effective radiated power. From the 1.2gig beams it will be 84,240 watts effective radiated power. So yes I have to do RF safety calcs and surveys! those power levels start to enter the danger zone especially if someone was standing in front of the dish. From the tower mounted antennas 35 feet up no concern, such a narrow beam width no appreciable power hits the ground until it is well with RF safety limits for uncontrolled exposure.I have to get my shack put back together after taking it all down to do the remodeling of the house.
