I've found buying "el-cheapo
" C[O.sub.2] cartridges are pretty much o waste of your time.
For instance, you're sharing a blind with some bozo who shows up with an el-cheapo
pump gun that sounds like the gears grinding on the stick-shift of a '55 Chevy every time he works the slide, yet it functions like a dream.
Though I had a couple of skateboards in the 1980s (starting with an el-cheapo
Variflex), it wasn't until 1990 when I got serious and started learning tricks.
Finally, and though we have an el-cheapo
mask, Precise Flight's Precise Flow Oxygen Mask with mic sorely tempts us.
That's an individual call, but the one unanimous opinion of everyone was, "They cost how much?" These are not folks who carry el-cheapo
pocketknives, we're talking folks who carry serious steel.
As Trevor Boddy again observes, 'Thomas Fung has achieved something with his Aberdeen Centre, but the marketplace jury is still out on just what it is: high-end fashion mall; el-cheapo
Neo-Chinatown emporium with better visuals; e-business showroom; the ultimate gathering place of the new Vancouver; or a retailing chimera?' As with any new idea, only time will tell if there is a genuine public appetite for the Fung/Thom mall model.
I don't how much profit there is on el-cheapo
ammo, but between barrels and possible injuries, my recommendation is to sell the best ammo possible.
We could use a few more like Tharp out here in el-cheapo
Reputed to be "the only pistol that could be made faster than it was loaded", this el-cheapo
weapon was manufactured by General Motors and distributed widely in France, China, and the Phillipines, for less than $2 a pop (I guess that would be about $25 now).
A word of caution: beware of that el-cheapo
launcher rest I've owned was a pain to adjust, not to mention totally unreliable.
Although ammo plays an undeniably crucial role in shooting accurately, we've all encountered folks who operate on the premise any "el-cheapo
" steel-cased import ammo found on bargain basement markdown will feed their guns "good enough." There's a disparity between these unwary plinkers and some of my friends who unwaveringly adhere to the code of the projectile illuminati.
Jake Finney Jon Jacobs Sheriff Stephen Polk Steve West Michael Kastenbaum Annie May Dawn Kapatos Stella Haley Gilbert A super el-cheapo
budget ($7,000) goes surprisingly far, at least production value-wise, in Jon Jacobs' and Michael Kastenbaum's Western noir "The Wooden Gun." But this largely uninvolving indie (which was shot several years back, but is premiering now as part of a retrospective of Jacobs' work) is less proof that a competent feature can be made on a shoestring than it is proof of the value of a good script.
If they have a function problem, they can't be scratching their heads wondering if it's a problem with the gun, or related to the el-cheapo
test ammo they bought that week!"
Almost 100 percent of the time it comes down to poor quality ammo and/ or after-market el-cheapo
