    Nasty . . . Seems like a safer barrier for the last 50m should be developed and made mandatory. No need for that kind of carnage.

    We went out to the Cortez Bank which is more than a hundred nautical miles offshore. Anchored up in 11 fathoms of water. Had a steady bite all day on good quality yellowtail. The 5 I kept totaled 92 lbs. No tuna on this trip.

    Rod too thick

    Run it through a die and file off the threads? I have no idea if that would work or not

    My bike ( Ariel Rider M class) is adjustable by reprogramming the LCD controller on the handle bar. Instructions included.

    Nope, you can set a top speed after which the power assist quits. For instance the European law limits power assist above 25 kph. USA class 1 and 2 limits at 20 mph. Class 3 is 28 mph. If my memory hasn't failed me. So you can limit top speed for kids or klutzes, or go dark side and disable the limiter altogether.

    What's in your arsenal??

    Had the HK USP .45. Fantastic piece of machinery. Lovely to shoot. Put a few hundred rounds through it and put it in the safe where it sat for a decade waiting for anarchy to commence. Anarchy never commenced, so I sold it and put the money towards yet another motorcycle.

    Precise sight alignment is great for fun shooting at targets and Ritz crackers. For self defense shooting practice, I'm focusing on my target exclusively and not really using the sights at all. Just like pitching a fastball or shooting a recurve bow I am focused solely on my target which is never more than 7 yards away. Practice practice practice. Gets pretty easy after a while. The sights on a 38 snubby are pretty crude anyway as they aren't really necessary to do it's job.
