"Here is a nifty guide for you: http://wiki.badgerandblade.com/Safety_razor_maintenance I used that info when I got my Gillette Fatboy."

Matthew Hockley replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"I think practice is what I need.  I recently completed the NRA basic pistol course.  The local range offers two courses geared specifically toward concealed carry. I hope to take both of them as well, but need my own gun first.  So…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"I don't currently own a firearm, but do plan to purchase one.  I've taken a basic training class and I have my license to carry. At this point even if I did own a firearm, I don't think I would carry it.  I don't feel…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Todd Serveto's discussion Chad Johnson did NOT deserve thirty days in jail for this....
"I never claimed to be offended.  I'm not.  It's actually quite difficult to truly offend me.  Only expressing my opinion.  Gentlemen don't butt-slap.  Admittedly I'm pretty biased. I detest most sports…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Todd Serveto's discussion Chad Johnson did NOT deserve thirty days in jail for this....
"Perhaps he doesn't deserve 30 days in the clink for the "butt pat".  However, it's highly unprofessional and inappropriate at anytime (yes, even on the field), but particularly in a court room.  Are we men or…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Colin G's discussion Start to early investments - 401k, Roth IRA, Mutual Fund
"Milk and bread just came to mind first, even if they are awful examples they still represent items that may be exchanged. In a doomsday scenario, the market will gravitate to something as a form of exchange. Gold and silver are good candidates for…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Colin G's discussion Start to early investments - 401k, Roth IRA, Mutual Fund
"To explain, I have to go into a little bit of history.  Gold as you correctly pointed out has been used for thousands of years as money.  So why?  Basically exchanges started as barter - "you give me milk and in exchange…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Colin G's discussion Start to early investments - 401k, Roth IRA, Mutual Fund
"Good thread.  I can use some of this info myself.  I can't speak to the ins and outs of the various options, but I'd suggest keeping at least a portion or your savings in the form of a gold-backed IRA or in physical gold or…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Victor Franklin's discussion Where to buy clothes at?
"Kohl's is pretty good for cheap clothes.  They don't last very long though, at least in my experience.  I really like dress shirts from Express (1MX line).  LL Bean has a lot of great stuff (gray flannel trousers, khakis,…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Daniel's discussion Casual Belts for Jeans?
"Casual belts are typically wider, bigger buckle, plain, and usually have a flat or less glossy finish then their dress belt brethren. I'd suggest that you look for a belt that is "top-grain" or "full-grain" leather. …"

Matthew Hockley replied to Noluckbuck's discussion Shoe advice
"Get a pair of nice Allen Edmonds. Clean and polish them regularly, keep them on ceder trees when not wearing them. AE offers resoling and full rebuilding of their good shoes (they do have some with rubber soles that can't be rebuilt, I'd…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Rick Shelton's discussion Does anyone work on their cars/truck/SUV anymore?
"I have a Chevy Cruze and a Monte Carlo SS.  I do as much of my own work as I can.  The only time I have something done by a dealer/shop is if I lack the equipment or tools to do it myself.  I saw your thread, but I don't have any…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Ethan Helms's discussion Suggested Clothing Brands On a Budget?
"For clothes, I like Express (dress shirts), Gap (for jeans), and recently I've become a big fan of LL Bean. Their stuff is top notch, and reasonably priced. Also, comes with a lifetime guarantee. For shoes, it's worth the investment to buy…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Victor Franklin's discussion Cut myself while shaving, again.
"Sounds like you need to revise your mindset toward shaving.  The goal should not be "beard removal" but "gradual beard reduction". As already said, ALWAYS go with the grain first pass.  For a second pass try going…"

Matthew Hockley replied to Jarhead's discussion Square toe shoes
"I have a pair and don't particularly care for them much, but as you said, it's all that was available in the store.  I plan to replace them soon with a pair of Allen Edmonds Wilberts.  I'm not sure what your budget is, but…"
