You might try FirstGear Kilimanjaro on close outs. I and a friend of mine bought Gen 4s for $149.95 at Sproketz on broad street in richmond. Check on line. They fit a little snug in the arms so you may want to go up size. They are very well built. He bought the pants as well and both held extremely well on a 35mph get off on Rte 56 (Crabtree Falls). Could barely see any damage.

I'm a 40S, 165 lbs and a medium perfectly.

So I'll probably have to settle for something like this:





For $300 ish. Total

Which completely beats my Jeans and a thermals on a day like today ;)

Upholstery?

Hey gents. First of all, happy new year! I hope everyone is well.

I was hoping someone could suggest a good upholstery place around Virginia Beach. I want to recover a couple of seats and would appreciate any suggestions, feedback, etc. Thanks in advance.

Hilltop...

He's not cheap, but he can do just about anything. It's worth a ride over just to check out some of his work. I've seen complete car interiors that he's done... very impressive.

He's recovered a motorcycle seat for me. Nothing too exotic. He had it done in a few days.

This is my first year in the last 26 that I can actually look ahead and not be counting the days untill I have to go back to sea again. I'm really looking forward to 2013 and the years ahead, hope to see you FF's on some rides this year.

I did knock out one of my 2013 firearms purchases yesterday (hey, I'm in the military, on-time is late, it's always better to be early right?). New Glock 19 in two-tone. Tom's damn son wouldn't sell me his so I had to buy a new one.



Why is that picture so huge??!!

BTW, we need to get that damn tag thread moving. I see a new tag is up, maybe I'll head out later.

I have to install some baseboard and paint some door casing trim, need to get the bathroom finished up, I'm really close!
I actually just picked up a 9mm glock too but it's a 26 for the wife. first glock I've ever owned and for being so small it shoots very well! here's a picture up next to my EDC springfield.

Couple of things for sale gentlemen:

Ive got two Gopro Heros for sale. Both in perfect working condition. Ill take $100 each or $180 for both. Each will come with the case but no sticky attachments.

I also have the LCD screen that fits the Hero or Hero 2. I dont have the extended door for the case but they are pretty cheap. $40 for the screen.

Giant Loop tank bag. I used it once but my legs are to long and bump into it. Its basically brand new. I paid $125 and Ill sell for $80.

Prices firm and local pickup only.

I love my 26, it was my first Glock, then came the 30SF, then the 19, see a pattern?

I'm currently in the market for both a 26 and a 19.

G26 was my first gun, never should've sold it...

Me too, When they put stuff on clearance you can't beat it. I got a nice set of Tourmaster overpants and a 3/4 jacket. Both were just a little over $100 each about 3 years ago on clearance.
