    New car- To AWD or not to AWD

    Lived in AK for 12 years, first 4 had a FWD SUV, then upgraded to the Sienna AWD for the last 8. With snow tires that thing did really well. Biggest complaint was ground clearance, if the plows don't come it is easy to get high centered when the snow compacts under the vehicle in deep stuff...

    Red Dot Sights on Handguns?

    I went with the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro on a G19 MOS. Anyone else running one? Thoughts? I heard the mounting plate was the weak point on the MOS system so I went this plate: http://www.chpws.com/product/leupold-delta-point-pro-glock-mos-adapter-plate-v3-pre-sale It was an easy install...

    Budget minded 12x50 or 15x50 Binoculars

    A 12 x 50 is my ideal Bino size. @gr8fuldoug, out of curiosity, what are your top 3-5 in the $300-$500 range? (in 12 x 50)

    Favorite Hunting Pants?
