    Hummingbird or garmin ????

    Garmin. I do feel the older chart shows more detail such as numbered markers and R or G if not mistaken. Seems that Simrad is the go to lately.

    Spinning Reels

    I like Quantum. Have the old Iron series, still looks and works like new. Both in spin and conv. Son just got 2 Vapor patโ€™s in 30. Looks very nice and feels good. Have not used yet. The Smokes are said to be excellent reels but a bit more. Vapor $139.

    premium upholstery?? How much different?

    Yes, thickness, material used, finish, processing method and so on. Itโ€™s the same as anything else made that looks the same. Itโ€™s all in the quality of material and the build. JMO ๐Ÿ‘

    S&W M&P 22 LR pistol?

    Kudo for what you did for your daughter with the CZ. I can feel your loss. When my son got his ccw about 15 years ago I wanted to make sure he had a great and reliable pistol. I gave him my cherished edc Smith 3913 9mm. The only auto owned at the time. Rather loose the pistol than him any day. Only one condition, it never gets sold. Gets handed down to one of the granddaughters. After Stef passed I gave my youngest granddaughter her Walther p22 as she was going off to college and wanted her to have a gun in her apt just in case, told her since it was a .22, just empty the mag.shooting since she was 10. The other will get the kimber or M&P 9c. All the ladies in the family have ccwโ€™s. Love it.

    Rod Reel Line

    Looking for some feedback an suggestions. Just purchased two 30 spinner for my son as a gift. He and I have been using Power Pro for years. My set ups are, 40, 8-17, 7โ€™, 20 braid. 30, 8-15, 7โ€™, 15 braid. He, 30โ€™s, 8-17, 7โ€™, 20 braid. Heโ€™s looking to switch to a different braid and going to get 2 new rods for the new reels. I suggest he spool with 15 and go 8-15 for the rod. What are you feelings. He fishes mainly mangroves and some flats as do I. Thanks as always, fin โš“๏ธ

    S&W M&P 22 LR pistol?

    JMO, I only use CCI in my .22 autos. If teaching with a .22 to move up to a larger cal I would not go with a target gun to learn on. Stick with the same platform she will move up to. DO NOT choose her gun. Let her do it by trying different ones at the range or shop to see how she likes the feel of it. I would also have her check out the fit and feel of the gun she will be moving up to. You may also suggest a wheel gun if she has concerns about jams, stove piping, limp wristing and such. The Smith would be a great choice if auto wanted. Before trying to get her to punch paper in groups, just let her get use to the feel of the gun, the rest will come. Have done this with my late wife and granddaughters. They are good and just got their ccwโ€™s. The ones I edc most.

    Weekend project

    TerryS, smart idea and good job. One suggestion, I have used those SS piano hinges, marine grade but they do not hold up as expected. They rust out. Suggest you keep them sprayed with corrosion X or similar or paint them with a rust preventive paint. Used them on Dock Box. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โš“๏ธ๐Ÿ™fin
