Postage scale recommendation

After reading the post about shipping labels—I want to get my wife a postage scale. It would be for occasional use only. I’m looking for recommendations, thanks

Do you want a scale that shows postage cost? Otherwise you might consider a well rated kitchen scale.

I would try to make a kitchen scale work, if possible. It may not go high enough, though.

I'm having a "USB Scale" flashback.

Mine is in a box somewhere.

I use this one: [www.amazon.com]

High range (110 lbs) and remote display. When you have larger packages, they will often cover the display of some units making it difficult to get a reading.

Mine is currently on my dining room table. I'm using it to measure a number of different mounts and optic combinations on my target pistols. Trying to get the weight down.

A fully loaded 1911A2 is REALLY heavy.

unless her occasional use involves packages of more than 11 pounds a kitchen scale would be more than adequate and handy for food prep uses.

Back in the day, the Army taught MPs to use the M1911 as a club when out of ammo wink smiley

The A2 is a double stack 14 rounds of .45, or 16 rounds of 10mm, or 18 rounds of 9mm. Sometimes called a 2011.

It wouldn't be as heavy then.

You should reload and then use it as a club!

Sure it wood.

A MP wouldn't be likely to fire it in the first place, let alone empty it.

And that's typical old school military thinking.

Use a firearm in place of a club so as to put one closer to the suspect where it can be taken away.

Smart move.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.
