Every Acura Sports Car You Should Know
From the NSX Type S to the Integra, here are the best Acura sports cars over the years.
Does Acura make sports cars?
A history of the Acura sports car
How to save money on Acura insurance

From the blazing speed of Acura’s NSX hypercar to the reborn Acura Integra and the sporty, mid-aughts RSX, Acura has consistently punched above its weight when it comes to sports cars.
Sure, Honda’s luxury and performance brand Acura might convey more luxe than speed, with the reliable and safe MDX and RDX crossovers or the spiffy TLX. But Acura does have a history of producing awe-inspiring sports cars, with one slated for 2023 to get gearheads’ tongues wagging in advance.
We're here to walk you through three of Acura’s most renowned sports cars and show you exactly what makes these sporty rides so great.

Does Acura make sports cars?
Yes, Acura does make sports cars. Well, technically Acura makes one sports car—the fierce NSX, though the soon-to-be-reborn Integra and the fondly remembered RSX are/were both spritely, sporty vehicles.
Acura’s first sports car was the 1989 NSX, which successfully blended the best of a hypercar with the practicality of a daily driver. The NSX lives on to this day as the brand’s premier sports car. But the Integra and the RSX are thrilling in their own right, so we’ll break them all down to give you the lowdown on each of these beastly road stars.
2022 Acura NSX Type S
The 2022 Acura NSX starts at $171,495, and it has been Acura’s go-to sports car since the late 1980s. It remains a top-tier feat of engineering—with its stealth styling and fighter-jet-like body, the 2022 NSX Type S both nods to the speed demons of the past and points to the future, as this hybrid boasts a V6 engine paired with three electric motors.
The 2022 NSX is actually the last, as it will be discontinued after the 2022 model year. Still, talk about going out on a high note—the NSX boasts an asphalt-scorching 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of just 2.9 seconds. Add to that a top speed of 191 miles per hour, responsive handling, and strong brakes, and the 2022 NSX will not be forgotten.
Of course, if you want to get your hands on one of these soon-to-be-collectibles, you’ll need to act quickly—just 300 models of the ‘22 NSX will be produced.
Another cool aspect of the NSX is its Quiet Mode, which will spare your neighbors’ eardrums as you barrel down the street and nearly break the sound barrier on your way to work.
How does the NSX compare to its competitors? Suitably well. Compared to the McLaren 570 ($215,000) and the Mercedes AMG GT($119,000), the NSX actually offers better handling and a quieter ride, making it especially useful as a daily driver, unlike the other two. If you are set on heading to the track and you have money to spend, those non-Acura roadsters might be better for you.

2023 Acura Integra
Next year, Acura will reintroduce its famous Integra—a hatchback that will start at $31,895, making it much more affordable, yet still shifty, fun, and sporty.
While those looking to buy an Integra might be disappointed that they won’t be getting the jaw-dropping power of the NSX, they’ll still be in for a treat—the Integra will feature a turbocharged 1.5 L 4-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower and an available 6-speed manual transmission.
While the new Integra will share a body with the Honda Civic, Acura’s reborn, entry-level luxury coupe will feature distinctive exterior styling and will be a carload of fun to drive.
Since there’s no Type S trim yet, we suggest going for the A-Spec Technology trim, which gets you an even sportier design, 18-inch wheels, and that slick 6-speed manual gearbox. The A-Spec trim also features a limited slip differential, direct steering, and adaptive dampers for even more fun on turns.

2006 Acura RSX
The RSX was Acura’s mid-aughts successor to the Integra—a sporty hatchback with more aggressive styling than its predecessor. While the Acura RSX was discontinued in 2006, it is remembered fondly for its incredible steering and refined drive. The RSX was an affordable, everyday vehicle that offered plenty of fun on the way to the office.
The last RSX sported a smooth and high-revving 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine, with 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. It came with a 6-speed manual transmission that was quick and fluid while still offering a secure ride. The RSX also came with strong brakes, a tuned-up suspension, and a super-cool rear spoiler.
When it was last released in ’06, the RSX retailed for $23,845, but you’ll likely be able to find a used one nowadays for $3,000 to $12,000, depending on the trim level, condition, mileage, added features, and other factors.

A history of the Acura sports car
The vaunted NSX, the soon-to-be-undead Integra, and the gone-but-not-forgotten RSX are just some of Acura’s sports car history milestones. Here’s a timeline of Acura’s most important sports car moments.
1986:Honda, determined to challenge the European imports cornering the North American luxury market, forms Acura as its luxury and performance division to make its claim to the U.S. and Canadian markets. Two models were released to start—the sporty Integra, and the Legend, a luxury sedan.
1989:Acura’s unveiling of its NSX hypercar sends a warning shot across the hood of the supercar industry. The NSX was billed as an exotic sports car that was actually practical and reliable. In fact, Motortrend was so smitten with the NSX that it called it “the best sports car ever built.”
1991:Acura dipped its toes into the racing world and won its first race, the 1991 Camel Lights Championship, with a V6-powered NSX racer. Acura would go on to also win the 24 Hours of Daytona race that same year.
2013:In Marysville, Ohio, Acura unveils its Performance Manufacturing Center, built to experiment and create unique driving technology and innovation processes. This facility is where the next-generation NSX was born.

2023.06.07 03:48 Witty_Success Whatsapp Scam?

A friend is in real estate and was contacted by someone via email looking for a home. They don't know the area so are asking for her expertise, and stated they want to live by malls and shopping centers. The odd thing is they want to be contacted via Whatsapp, because they're more active there. They said to send a message to them on whatsapp and they'll call her. She hasn't called yet, but since then she's got a few Notifications on whatsapp saying various numbers added her.
It's a bit sus that you wouldn't want to talk over the phone, but I'm not familiar with scams that could arise from this. And they have a decent budget, so she doesn't want to just ignore them.
Do yall know of any scams that start out this way, or a similar manner?

2023.06.07 03:43 Expensive-Two-8128 My mind cannot be changed: There has never been a better, more worthy leader to trust COMPLETELY with BILLIONS (and soon-to-be TRILLIONS) of our hard-earned money — Article by Ryan Cohen, May 4, 2020

A note before RC’s article below: If you are ever fearful, uncertain, and/or doubtful about GameStop’s ability to overcome the parasitic criminal shorts, JUST REMEMBER: THIS is the man we’ve entrusted with BILLIONS of dollars. Read it, read it again, and then watch the FUD completely evaporate
Link to original article:
By Ryan Cohen May 4, 2020
Everything I know — from empathy to the principles of making money — I learned by following in the footsteps of my late father, Ted Cohen. We spoke for hours every day. He was, and always will be, my best friend, advisor and biggest advocate. A successful glassware importer with an impeccable work ethic, my father never missed a day on the job. If he were here today, he’d be worried about the millions of unemployed and struggling businesses across the country. The warehouse workers, drivers, construction workers and small-business owners — those are the people he respected most. Looking back on his life and influence, the following five principles he showed me were critical to my success building and investing.
Watch your expenses
Disciplined capital allocation is one of the most important skills for running a successful business. Thanks to my father, I had the privilege of learning this firsthand. He kept track of every expense —his power bills, daily gasoline prices that impacted transportation costs, the individual prices of hundreds of glassware products that he sold. My father also kept tabs on Chewy’s metrics. He memorized the key performance indicators in both of our businesses.
At Chewy, we had maniacal discipline when it came to how we spent money. The company-wide culture of frugality came from his example. Free cash flow was our unwavering governor of growth. We grew Chewy from $200 million in sales in 2013 to $3.5 billion in 2018 while spending only $130 million in capital, all of which went into opening distribution centers across the country and acquiring new customers.
Delight your customers
My father always repeated this quote from his own father: “If you take a carload of this (pointing to a pallet of glassware) you’ll make more money. But if you take a carload of that (pointing to a different pallet), you’ll make less money, but you’ll keep the customer. So, take a carload of that.”
When we started Chewy in 2011, selling pet food online wasn’t a novel idea. The field was crowded with competitors, including Amazon. But our mission was to delight customers in a more personal way. We believed combining the experience of the neighborhood pet store with the convenience of shopping online was a key differentiator. The focus was fast shipping, competitive pricing and providing customers with a hyper-specialized experience. My father showed me how building lifelong relationships with customers was far more valuable than optimizing for short-term profits.
Be the person others want to follow
My father led by example, but not in a deliberate way. It’s who he was. He never patronized anyone. He admired the blue-collar worker. I watched him roll up his sleeves and help his employees move shipments of glassware from trucks into the warehouse, then put his suit jacket back on, shirt drenched in sweat, and do administrative work. I’ve never seen anyone work harder.
I was fortunate to find employees at Chewy who worked relentlessly to grow the company from a three-person operation to a household brand with more than 10,000 employees. We didn’t disrupt the pet industry by accident. Our team made huge sacrifices. We opened our first fulfillment center in early 2014, and everything from the warehouse management system to the Wi-Fi would constantly break down. The team worked 16-hour days for weeks until our supply chain was humming. Everyone from the fulfillment staff to the directors and executives were committed to Chewy’s success. You don’t get that level of dedication by leading through fear. My father always said, “You catch more bees with honey than with vinegar.”
Take the long view
My father was never looking to make a quick buck. He had no interest in material possessions. Every year, through thick and thin, he invested his savings into the stock market. He believed the real money was made through time in the market, not timing the market. When I was 13, he gave me a chart comparing real estate to stock market returns since the 1920s. Real estate annualized returns were around 4 percent, and the stock market was around 9 percent. It didn’t take long for me to figure out which I preferred. I’ve been investing ever since. My father never invested in any fancy funds or paid management fees. He bought blue chip companies and held them forever. His 20-year annualized stock returns were over 10 percent. He never borrowed money or paid interest.
As we scaled Chewy, many advised us to slow down and raise prices. We disagreed. Key to our success was obsessing over customers and market leadership. Over the long term, customers and profits intersect.
Trust yourself
Entrepreneurs don’t operate with a handbook. My father taught me how to be independent and trust my own moral compass. He encouraged me to separate myself from the herd and think critically. When I told him I had no desire to go to college, he shrugged. Whether he agreed with my decisions or not, he supported me unconditionally. Letting me make my own decisions sowed the seeds for me to become an entrepreneur. The confidence to never compromise my vision of building Chewy into the largest pet retailer came from knowing if I failed, he would always love me.
For 45 years, he was the first employee to open his office and last one to leave. He showed me how perseverance and discipline ultimately pay off. Not only was his work ethic unmatched, so was his commitment to family. He gave me unconditional love and showed me how to be a father. Above all, he taught me that the best decisions come from heart, instincts and empathy.
Dad, I will forever be grateful.
Ryan Cohen is the founder and former CEO of, a company he started when he was 25 years old. In 2017, Cohen made history when he sold Chewy to PetSmart for $3.35 billion in the largest ecommerce deal in history. In 2019, Chewy went public at a valuation of $8.7 billion.

2023.06.07 03:43 VisforVenom Anyone gotten extra trade-in credit for a faulty phone towards new model?

My Xperia 1 iii is just out of warranty (which is frustrating because I've been trying to get it fixed since before the warranty ended but got some bad Intel from CS and a lot of runaround.)
My camera randomly stopped working last year. I was renting a uhaul to move cross country and whipped it out to take pictures of the truck, but it wouldn't focus on anything. Within about a minute the camera completely stopped working. Ever since, I've had the "unknown error" when trying to open any stock camera app. And various other errors (like "camera is in use by another app") with third party apps.
I've tried starting in safe mode. Tried pressing and bending all around the main board and cameras. Factory reset several times. Run all updates. Clear cache and data obviously. Opening directly to front camera doesn't work. QR scan doesn't work. Snapchat. Nothing.
Seems to me that all of the cameras going out at once is not a hardware issue (with the cameras I mean.) And is either software or main board related. But for what... 8 months now? I have periodically tried everything I can find to fix it short of opening it up and nothing has worked. I half suspect a solder issue from the overheating. No local repair shops deal in camera issues. They won't even look at it.
The last time I called Sont Repair Center they quoted me minimum $280 to fix it. The trade-in value is $100. But I really would rather just get the 1 V.
The agent at the repair center mentioned that Sony has been known to offer people special additional trade-in credit for these kinds of issues if it's towards a pre-order of the next device. But I haven't been able to find any evidence of this (or had time to contact support again to ask about it.)
Has anyone here had any experience with such an offer?

2023.06.07 03:05 Wise-Cantaloupe-5870 Lack of community rant

One thing that really sucks about being physically disabled is the fact that the city I live in has absolutely no place to go to meet other physically disabled people. No community center no groups nothing. There are plenty for intellectually and mentally disabled but not a single group community area, camp anything and it just makes me so sad because it is so hard to find and even harder to keep friends when I'm a wheelchair user I can hobble a few steps with crutches or a walker but I can't alway just do that and even then that doesn't mean much. All the cool shops have stairs with no ramps or anything, tranis accessibility is terrible and I always feel so alone.

2023.06.07 02:49 Badsniperarmy Itinerary Check: 13 days in Japan with whole family (June 27 - July 9) (Tokyo - Kyoto - Nara - Osaka)

Hello! The fam and I (6 people) are here for 13 days and we’d love to make the most of it! So far this is all I have in the itinerary though before I find more things to do (recommendations welcome!). Also, I'm aware Hilton Tokyo Bay hotel is horrible location wise (already got... informed on the discord lol) (currently in the process of finding a different place!). I’m wondering:
  1. If this is too packed and unrealistic to get done in this time
  2. If there are any huge things/experiences we’re missing
  3. Does the Gion Matsuri Festival start on the night of June 30th or the night of July 1st?
  4. Is day 5 too light (more detailed question located in day 5)?
  5. Does the natural spring Onsen experience differ much from Tokyo, Kyoto, or Osaka?
    1. We really would love to go to a natural one and it looks like there’s a ton in all these places!
Any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Day 1 (6/27) Tokyo

Day 2 (6/28) Tokyo

Day 3 (6/29) Tokyo

Day 4 (6/30) - Tokyo/Kyoto

Day 5 (7/1) - Kyoto

Day 6 (7/2) - Kyoto/Nara/Osaka

Day 7 (7/3) - Osaka

; Sleep in Osaka

Day 8 (7/4)

Day 9 (7/5)

Day 10 (7/6)

Day 11 (7/7)

Day 12 (7/8) Mt.Fuji/Hakone

my new grails on the way! <3
i love watching carter bryant’s instagram and shop to see when new dolls get posted, and i checked it out today and seen my babies 😭
i couldn’t resist! the kidz are my absolute comfort items, and i feel so much more comfortable taking them everywhere with me & giving them love compared to the full size girls who i feel the need to keep in pristine condition 🤣
i have been trying to become a lot better at centering my collection around what genuinely makes me happy & brings me joy to have- the ones i can’t resist!- versus just feeling the need to compete with others or buy as many lines / characters as possible, and this is the perfect step in that direction <3 i have been taking a long break from buying any dolls for this reason, and the way i felt seeing these little ones really just reminded me how that Bratz magic is supposed to feel 💕
i will update everyone once they arrive! 🩷

2023.06.07 02:30 McMonkeMeat Fear about tire repair

Fear about tire repair
I recently had a flat tire but drove on it about 20 miles before I realized it was flat (up to 70 mph). It was a nail in the center "repairable" zone and when I took it to the shop the mechanic determined that a patch would suffice. It wasn't until I got home that I realized I forgot to mention to them how long I drove on it. I'm wondering if I can still trust this repair knowing the tire was inspected - its just the driving on it that really concerns me. Should I also try to get the tire replaced soon anyway? (2021 Hyundai kona, around 10k miles if that's necessary).

2023.06.07 02:04 iDestr0ya I'm a brown guy shopping in a garden center.

And sometimes, it isn't a fun experience.
I've been a minority all my life. I know how it is in public places. I am always well groomed, well dressed - just a tad over-dressed. As was the case this day over the weekend. So here I am hunting for some plants only this past week because I was down with covid in the prior weeks. Lots are picked over and shelves are disorganized so I have to look at the labels for each pot to see if that's the plant I want. I am cruising the aisles of the garden center, reading glasses up, eye balls deep into the greens when some middle-aged man starts chirping "excuse me excuse me". I ignored him thinking that'll send him a message. After the 5th or 6th time he goes away. I moved down the aisle, continuing my hunt for plants. He's back chirping again "excuse me I'm looking for...". So I straightened up and looked at him. "Why do you think I work here? Am I wearing an employee tag?" he was stunned. He didn't reply. So in case the gentleman who's probably in his late 50s or early 60s was hard of hearing, I repeated it. "What made you ASSume I work here?" he then looks at the plants I'm holding. "because you're holding plants". so I retorted indignantly "oh so customers don't hold plants?". It's only then he said "I'm sorry". I shook my head and gave him a look.
Folks, don't assume because you see a brown guy in a garden center he works there.

2023.06.07 01:04 dreamingofislay Isle of Raasay Distillery - visit recap

Isle of Raasay Distillery - visit recap
Just did a series of posts recapping our trip to Islay for Feis Ile 2023. Continuing with that theme, we carried on up to the Highlands and then drove over to Skye, where we've spent the last few days. Today, after hiking up the Old Man of Storr, we hopped the quick ferry across to Raasay, to visit the first (legal) distillery built there. Some quick thoughts:
Not a bad view from Raasay looking back at Skye
  • Raasay's visitor center is gorgeous and well-designed, with room for a small gift shop, bar, a tasting room, an indoor lounge, an area that looks like it could become a cafe or bistro, and ample outdoor seating for the rare days (like today) when it's bright and lovely outside. The actual stillhouse is a staircase up from the bar, so this is a small place, but with a lot to see. You can even stay in their on-site lodgings, which already has me thinking of a return trip ...
The small stillhouse at Isle of Raasay Distillery
  • Raasay, the entire island, has 170-odd inhabitants. On the tour, our excellent guides (Alex and trainee Janie) explained the long history behind that, but mostly it boils down to one rich a-hole who bought the whole island in the 1800s and then tried to drive everyone else off through draconian laws. When the distillery started up, it started employing a significant chunk of the island's populace. Really amazing.
  • Unlike some island distilleries we've visited, Raasay is small enough that it still ages all of its whisky on the island (because space is at such a premium on islands, big distilleries often age the majority of their stock in mainland Scotland). It makes peated, lightly peated, and unpeated malt. For the first two, it sources peat from the Highlands, so it's not using an island-style peat with maritime and seaweed-y notes.
  • The main tasting room features a live edge wood table with the ingredients of whisky written at each place in Gaelic (e.g, water, oak/wood, time, barley, yeast, etc.).
A+ tasting room at Isle of Raasay Distillery
  • We did the tasting with a chocolate pairing instead of the standard tour. But it turns out the two experiences aren't entirely separate. The whole group goes through the tour together and then returns to the tasting room at the end, where everyone tries the same whiskies and gin. The only difference is the chocolate pairing people get their chocolates there with everyone else. It is a bit awkward to have the two tastings together, so some people have the extra bit and some don't, although everyone was enjoying themselves in our crew.
  • Raasay and Skye are both stunning (to be fair, in our eyes, the entire Scottish highlands is one knockout viewpoint after another). We did the obligatory hike up to see the Old Man of Storr this morning. A bit tougher than expected, lots of elevation change!
Some quick notes on the whiskies:
Isle of Raasay Single Malt - The distillery's flagship is a mix of six different whiskies: heavily and lightly peated spirits, aged in three cask types, ex-rye whiskey, Chateau Margaux red wine casks, and virgin oak. Three unusual barrel types, and a huge departure from your typical ex-bourbon/ex-sherry choices. The result is a great encapsulation of their house style: quite fruity, rich, and caramel-laden, but ending with a soft, earthy peat.
Isle of Raasay Distillery Exclusive/Tourism Destination of the Year - To celebrate a recent tourism award, the distillery bottled a tiny batch of Manzanilla sherry casks. My wife raved about this whisky, which started out with a sweeter chocolate note before growing drier with time. A bit of youthful spirit on the palate, but overall a nice dram.
Isle of Raasay Chinkapin Oak Single Cask - Had not heard of this oak type before visiting, but it's apparently what Raasay uses for their virgin oak cases. It imparts flavors that remind me a lot of oloroso sherry aging: sultanas, nuts, and creamy vanilla.
Isle of Raasay Red Wine Single Cask - For some reason, a lot of wine cask finishes or maturations on this trip have given me a slightly metallic note - something I also find in a lot of Redbreast bottlings - and that was the case here as well. Also fruity, but not particularly sweet.
Isle of Raasay Gin - Cheating a bit to include notes on this non-whisky, but it's a part of the tasting. This exhibited tremendous balance between the juniper, some citrus/lemon and orange peels, and other earthy botanicals. I would have sworn cardamom, but they proved I know nothing because it's not in there. Oh well. Pricey at 40 pounds, but very good.
The funny thing is, we've enjoyed our time on Skye without feeling like we need to come back for more. But we loved hanging out at this distillery so much that we now want to come back for Raasay (and maybe even stay there)!

2023.06.07 00:48 mrbitbybit [WTS/WTT] Five Folders, One Fixed Blade, Two Pocket Organizers, & Three Hankys

What's up Knnifeswap Gang!
Got an assortment of blades with some hankys and pocket organizers looking for new homes. Take $5 off any additional purchase! Timestamp
Trade Interest: Spyderco Rhino 🦏
Spyderco - Military - S30V - Factory Second Frankenstein
Cobbled from a factory second S30V blade and Blurple G10 scales. Not sure why the blade was marked a factory second. Some fine scratches on the blade, a roll on the edge, and wear on the G10. Used by previous owner. The rest of the edge is factory sharp. No box. The Military is the best linerlock I’ve handled. It has phenomenal lockup, no play, and a snappy detent. This beast is just a bit big for me. The Military is the knife Spyderco's owner, Sal Glesser, designed after someone asked him, "If your son were going into the military what folding knife would you send him with?". Lightweight for its size (4.3oz) while packing a broad 4” leaf shaped blade. Very balanced and nimble in hand. Would make for an extraordinary user or EDC. SV - $110
Schrade - Sch510 - SureLock - AUS8
New but no box. A great budget bruiser style knife. Feels overbuilt. The SureLock is similar to the Steel Will Taso’s Ant Lock, but at a fraction of the cost. SV - FREE w/ any purchase
Reefknotbags - Medium Pocket Organizer
New and unused. Has six organizer pockets with a zippered interior. This one is great for pens, SAKs, smaller folders, pry bars, thinner flashlights, etc. The maker’s pocket organizers all use a YKK Zipper, KD38 waterproof cotton canvas, and Nylon bonded heavy duty thread. Quality and durable materials. SV - $25
Reefknotbags - Large Pocket Organizer
New and unused. Comes with three organizer pockets and a large zippered interior. The center pocket can fit a PM2, Knipex, or Leatherman comfortably. SV -$30
PRHC Productions - Planets/It’s So Fluffy Unicorn Hanky
New and unused. Planets on the front, cute “It’s So Fluffy” Unicorn backing. Great quote from the Minions movie. SV - $15

Thanks for looking everyone! Hit me up if you have questions, offers, or trades.

(Below have SOLD)
AKC - Smarty - Green/Blackwash SOLD
NIB but has some slight wear on the scales from the factory. This is an excellent addition to any scale opening auto collection. If you’re looking for a Protech Whisker, this is a fine budget alternative. The Smarty has milled aluminum scales, a milled pocket clip, and a blackwashed D2 reverse tanto blade. Built very well with snappy action. SV - $50
Jesse Jarosz - Apple Jack - Slate G10/AEB-L SOLD
Carried a handful of times but never used. In excellent condition with COA. This knife is very snappy so there is some blade rap (center of blade hits back spring when letting it slam shut). So you just have to close it gently. It’ll eventually sharpen out, so this will make a great user. Has a stronger 7.5 pull and snappy walk and talk. Incredibly lightweight at only 1.7oz. Integrated bottle opener in the backspring. I believe this is the only Apple Jack with a Ti milled clip, as it was a custom request. An amazing Jarosz custom for only SV - $140
SixLeaf - SL-19 - Ti/S35VN SOLD
New and unused but has some snail trails from the factory. No box. This is the best valued Ti linerlock in the game right now. It’s excellently built with premium materials and is fidgety with multiple deployment methods. I don’t think there’s any knife even remotely close to this in value. I went back and forth so many times whether or not to sell it, but it doesn’t get any carry time so it needs a new home. SV - $50
Ink and Teeth - Pocket Scalpel - Forged 1095 SOLD
New with sheath. A well forged knife with aesthetically pleasing and effective jimping on the spine. The edge of the blade is a continuous belly that ends at a very pointy tip. Great for slicing or precise cutting. The kevlar cordage used for the handle also provides a comfortable and grippy touch. The kydex sheath is a great fit, no rattle, and pops off with the thumb when needed. An excellent EDC fixed blade. I paid $120, take it for only SV - $70 $50
MCMD Hankery - Viking Village Hanky SOLD
New and unused. Detailed viking village front, with a very soft and supple suede backing. Beautifully stitched. SV - $15
Cranky Hanky - Lucky Shamrock Hanky SOLD
New and unused. Shamrocks on the front with plain backing. Maker rarely does hanks anymore, so these designs are rare. SV - $15

Long time listener first time caller. I got a decent looking “asian contract” part kit what am I missing before i find a builder?
AkB shopping cart right now. Rivet set Center support rivet Disconnector spring Hammer spring Barrel Fcg retaining pin plate? Standard size barrel? Would turning oversized down be better? Since trunnion may be wallered out or something?
Doing a childers receiver Do i get the trunnion rivet holes pre drilled and retaining plate from them installed? Would that be easier for the builder?

Scosglen Side Quests (Act 2)
Has anyone 100% the area already? I can't find the last side quest... As far as I know I got all the hidden ones. (Broken Bear Totem, Broken Totem, Ravenous, The Vessel one etc.) Traveled the whole scosglen map again, visited all towns, played the whole campaign but can't seem to find the last one. Also I noticed something strange. Normally when you finish a quest dungeon it won't stay blue but Mitherign Descent did so. Maybe the quest wasn't registered or something weird.

2023.06.07 00:31 harryhart9 28 [M] NYC - Any souls unbounded and worldly out there?

Hi there - A little bit about myself - I moved to NYC about two years ago. I live one avenue away from Lincoln Center, went to law school, like modern art (Georgia O'Keeffe anyone?), music, shows, photography (digital and medium format), outdoor things, psychology, politics and philosophy. Average build getting stronger every day. And 5'11'' (Oopsies!). Not really interested in things like the the Royal Family, the Kardashians, astrology and getting brunch for Instagram purposes, nor waiting in long lines for mediocre influencer NYC shops/restaurants. Been dating non-Asians since senior year in college and do not want to switch anytime soon. Let me know if you'd be interested in exploring the city and adventure through life together. It would be nice to have someone to appreciate big and little things in life together.
Lastly - NYC air sucks today!
