EPISODE-239 BASIC FIREARM SKILLS

Sorry i haven’t had an episode out in a while guys, I had a lot going on around here and i didn’t have time to edit and upload podcasts like i wanted to. The bummer is now i am all caught up and now i am having technical issues with the site and i cant get it to let me upload more than 25% of a podcast.So i didnt want to let you go with out a podcast any longer so i am posting an old episode. This episode is originally episode 31. I know the audio is going to be crappy but like i said i cant upload anything so i cant even re edit the episode and re upload it. Anyway i hope you stick with me till i get this figured out and i hope you enjoy this podcast from my first year of podcasting.

Today i discuss how to inspect a gun when you are buying it and how to sight in a rifle . I discuss what to look for as far as finish of a rifle and things to check when looking over the mechanical parts .If you are ever in doubt a bout a rifle you should always refer to a gunsmith is you are not 100% sure on something .This is meant to be a guide to help you weed out the crappy firearms from the better ones . I also discuss how to sight in a rifle scope without a boresighter, which is becoming a lost art nowadays. I also discuss how to adjust open sights on a rifle .

EPISODE 178 GETTING READY FOR SPRING

Hello everyone,

Today’s episode is on getting ready for spring, or at least that’s how it started. I guess a more proper title would have been how to check out your car after winter but i already named it so, oh well. Today i talk about checking your car out after a long winter. The things you should inspect after a lot of driving in the ice and snow, hitting potholes and and driving down  frost heaved roads. These are the things i look at on my car every spring and how to inspect them. They are things that anyone with a flashlight, some rags, a floor jack, and some jack stands can do regardless of your skill level.

EPISODE-40 BASIC CAR CARE

Hello everyone ,

in todays episode i discuss how to do a full service oil change and lube job on your vehicle, not that crappy 10 min quick lube job that most people get nowadays .this is a easy thing you can do at home to save money. you might not necessarily always save money doing your own oil change but you can control the quality of the products used and that can save you money in the long run by eliminating future maintenance issues that could be prevented .also every thing that needs to be greased will get greased ,which in my personal experience does not happen that often . 

i would also like to hear any ideas you guys might have for episode 50 i kind of want to do something different there so if you have any ideas e-mail me them or leave a comment in the show notes .

i also have subscribed for a new i tunes feed for the new site so it is getting closer to being our new home , when i get it i will post it here .

And as always i would  like to  hear your comments and suggestions so e-mail me at  lostskillspodcast@gmail.com or visit my face book page  http://www.facebook.com/#!/lostskillspodcast or comment  on my web page. also feel free to comment in the show notes. i hope you all like today’s show and  thank you all for listening
