  • You don't need much, 1.5hp/6 gallon compressor would probably do. Just need a regulator either on the gun or on the compressor to knock the pressure down around 40-50 psi. …

  • I got tired of reading all the bull sh-t above. My take is if you don't like to hunt that's fine. But because you don't hunt don't mean I shouldn't hunt. Hunting is also a form of game management. Most of these people who are anti hunting complain cause …

  • Blu ran a set like that, the metal was really good quality but with his old 509 it was sort of louder rumble than the turbo style. I probably will try MagnaFlo or maybe the Jones on the next go around. Thanks for the pic. I will try …

  • I've tried frog spit, quick slick, and ended up going back to Steel flex 2000. Frog spit was pretty good, quick slick didn't hold up well at all mostly because I got the wrong info and was told I could put it on over frog spit. I ground it …
