Nice, my inlaws just gave me one of these for my birthday on Wednesday

First smoker that I've owned so I'm in the process of getting the accessories for it to smoke up some ribs on the weekend.

Stream Deck, fully programmable macro keypad with lcd screen buttons

I don't actually stream because my internet sucks, but I've been getting back into video editing and I've heard this is good for that, and when I eventually get good enough internet I will stream

I wanted one of those so bad when they were announced/came out. I wonder how they're faring now?

Hope they turn out great!

I was considering getting a meat smoker a while back but wasn't sure how much time I'd be able to devote to it so didn't go ahead with the purchase. Was watching vids from this guy quite a lot. He's apparently pretty popular in Texas:

On the topic of meats, whilst I don't have a photo of it, I got a lovely chicken shish meal with rice, tabouli, garlic sauce, and hummus for dinner. Did not disappoint.

Going to start shooting at the small bore club next year, but all my rifles are waaay too big for that, so picked this up on the cheap.

Saw this on UsedGuns, negotiated down to $270 delivered...Lithgow Model 12 that has been fully cleaned, hot dip blued, reasembled and had the action smoothed out an the stock refinished. It wont take me to the Olympics but for the cost it will let me see just how much I like small bore shooting.

I think I'll need to have it drilled and tapped for a scope, then I'll throw a cheap tasco on it to start with.

Can't find a photo of the whole set AU is getting and apparently, neither could the person who posted this on ebay:

And yes, this time I did buy the glasses. I think I'm done with Big Macs till the next coke glass promo.

Lithgow guns deserve better than a Tasco.

I’m all about fit for purpose, in an ideal world I’d buy an Anschutz and drop $600 an a quality piece of glass - but what’s the point?

Assuming I get into it and really enjoy it then I’ll look to upgrade the glass and eventually the rifle, but my days of needing to have top quality gear have long past, hell my main shooting rifle is a Swede 6.5 that’s just over 100 years old now and has been wearing that Tasco since I got it :lol: Shoots well enough for me.

Yeah they didn't get any cheaper - they're also terrible to type on apparently.
I too wanted the heck out of that keyboard!

Used to own one of those, bit more manual than most people use these days but damned if it didn't make a tasty cup of coffee.
Also a few mods you can do to it too - such as temp control.
Man I miss regular coffee drinking - my body hates caffeine now :(

Uhh... what's to stop you shooting other projectiles through that ^ ?


Edit: bahahaha i googled it to see how they fire and the first result was Mythor's youtube channel :clap:

Oooh, version 2 of the gun? Neat. :D
Looks better in black, hope it mashes gel balls less often than the v1. As, yes, I demonstrated on YouTube. :D (link if anyone wants a look)

You could potentially shoot BBs of the right size through it but it doesn't match the standard Airsoft size (6mm) so I'm not sure where you'd get them or how well it'd run them. It would be illegal to do it, if it works. But yeah, don't think there's anything that stops people from trying.
