  • Just started December 2011......I have a pretty extensive work shop ( I am a millwright so I can weld, do electrical work. I was an electronics tech in Army and I am a licensed HVAC tech) I had alot of the equipment around my shop to get started with very little investment. I traded in one of my welding bottles for a CO2 bottle and had an unused Nitrogen regulator laying around the shop that all i neded was an adaptor to use for CO2.

    a 22 rim fire pistol such as a Ruger 22 or a Browning 22 or even a revolver. 22S are cheap to

    I'm headed to the store but I'm buying Swiss Premium Ice Tea Lemon aid Cooler to use as my base
