Sadly it looks like my choice for ranges are almost as limited. Much to my surprise in visiting Lowes, Home Depot , and Best Buy yesterday. Slide in ranges aren't very popular so I had one choice at both Home Depot, and Lowes. Lowes was expensive and they charge an extra $220 for installation Best Buy surprisingly had the best selection, they had a whole four models, plus the really pricy Vikings. Really it turns out there is only one model that had convection oven, and wasn't complete overkill for somebody who isn't serious cook like myself.

Of course I can always order via the internet and wait for 6 weeks for it to be shipped from the mainland. Oh well the price of paradise. The good news, with a microwave, toaster over, Foreman grill, and the ever popular eating out I won't
Around here I am seeing plenty of free-standing slide-in electric ranges to choose from. Our problem is we have a drop-in electric range that we want to replace with a free-standing slide-in electric range. This will require a little carpentry.

Also, we are looking at the over-the-range hood/microwaves. I can't understand why these things are popular. It appears to me to be a rather lame concept. We have decided to go with a new basic hood over the proposed new range. We have a cabinet cut-out shelf designed for a free-standing microwave.

Incidentally, I thought Honolulu was on an island. There's no better shooting range than the open ocean.

We're still cleaning up UXO on the seabeds from WWII and to a depth of four feet on Kaho'olawe, and you want to create yet another environmental hazard?!?

Waikiki's indoor shooting range exists almost exclusively for the hedonistic thrill of Japanese visitors who rarely get to touch, let alone shoot, a firearm. When our daughter was accepted to NROTC we sent her down there for a couple familiarization firings. On her second trip she thought she was pretty hot stuff with a .22 until the regular next to her started shooting his .357 Magnum.

They actually use a leash on the muzzles of the revolvers to ensure that the customer keeps them pointed downrange.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
