I'm going to fire a firearm for the first time tomorrow with my gf's dad, who literally does that for a living...

I'm intimidated. :c

Pfft, have you shot a bow and arrow before? I know people who do all the time and that scares the hell out of me, knowing somebody could Rambo me and I wouldn't see it coming.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

I shot bow and arrow in middle school, lots of fun. Shot a gun for the first time last year, a shotgun. After a few shots you should be alright.

I like guns. Problem is, ammo is way too expensive.

I would love to get into shooting a bow and arrow, but don't know where to start/not sure if I want to spend a few hundred dollars on a bow and target and stuff to get into it.

Thanks to Tiphireth for the help and modium for the pics.

Do like I do and reload your own ammo. Talk about scary...

Rocko, just remember to always be safe, listen to the guy instructing you and never, ever point a gun at something you don't mean to destroy. Also, finger OFF the trigger at all times until you're ready to fire. You'll naturally want to rest your finger on the trigger but you'll need to ignore that instinct.

Unless you're shooting a Mosin, 12 gauge or some sort of 50 BMG, you'll probably be surprised at how little they actually recoil.

Second Post, Different Topic:

Wife wants a Kinect. Wii Fit isn't really doing it for exercise purposes anymore.
Is $250-$230 pretty much the lowest price to get one?
(Have a :ps3: . Am content with that. Not interested in the XBOX for games, it would be 95% for the wife just to use for Kinect and exercise purposes.)


There's a Kinect Nike Training bundle at stores, but it's $300 instead of $250.

Love shooting guns. I never thought I would, but I befriended a country redneck with a huge gun collection. We went behind his house with some other friends and shot guns. Went to a range a couple of times and shot there as well. The only thing I don't like is the recoil. I used one gun where I actually had to stop because my hands hurt so bad.

Last time I shot anything was Scout camp and Sports camp. Nearly 30 years ago.
Can't imagine any kids summer sports camp allowing skeet and target shooting these days.

Pistol? My wife has the same problem. The checkered grips hurt her hands.

Yeah, I believe it had the checkered grip as well, but I'm not 100% sure. My friend later got a Beretta, and I loved that thing. Didn't hurt my hands and basically no recoil. If I get a gun, I'm definitely going that route.

Outland is fun, but too hard for my deteriorating skills and limited patience.

Well, my best friend of 20 years and brother from another mother, his girlfriend gave birth to his first kid today. A girl. I just had to post this on his FB wall


When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

I know it has gotten shit on pretty hard, but I kind of like Windows 8. It is going to take some getting used to, but there are a lot of nice things about it.

Yeah, my dad drilled basic firearm safety into me years ago when he would show me his guns, although I never got to fire one. I shot a 9mm and .45 (don't know much more about them than that...) and it was pretty entertaining. Weirdly, it was both more and less powerful than I expected... the recoil was less than I expected, but it was a lot more humbling than I thought to shoot just because it was a lot of power of my hand, I guess. I would definitely go again, I enjoyed it.

gf's grandma got a new PC with Windows 8 and what I've seen of it looks really nice. Not sure if I'd go so far as to upgrade my PC to it, but it looks like it'd be fun to learn and play with.

It was one of the first 12 in the Instant Game Collection that they started after E3.

Yeah, when I first shot handguns, I was surprised by how little recoil there actually was but also surprised at how loud they were. I thought I could shoot the dinky little 9mm round without hearing protection...big mistake.

I just purchased a new tv to replace the 32" LCD we had that got fried in a recent thunder storm. Anyone have any advice on what to do with the broken one, short of taking it to the recycling center?

To be honest, windows 8 felt natural to me the first day I've tried it only because I've watched several videos on youtube on win 8 tablets lol.

So Vita games don't come with manuals any more... it's stored on the cart. That's kind of disappointing, even though I never opened them. It's literally just a little cartridge inside a bare case.

I'm so glad 2012 is over. Most of it consisted of paying thousands on car repairs and dealing with drama from work and family (more than usual). I can only think of four good things that happened to me in 2012:

1. Going to Wrestlemania.

2. Getting a complete release of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo on DVD. Seriously, this was stuck in licensing hell for years and finally it's available in full for everyone.

3. Entering a tournament [in house] for the first time at American Top Team and placing 3rd. Training with a bunch of great people really gets my mind off of work; I just wish I did more of it in 2012.

4. Winning a $50 Amazon gift card.


I really hope 2013 is better.

Yea, that's especially annoying. I'm very particular about getting my games complete (even used) so them missing manuals is frustrating. It's even worse because not all games are missing manuals, just most. Be nice if there was a list of what games come with what.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Yesterday felt like a Sunday. After breakfast I kept wondering why I couldn't find any NFL games on.
Today's now a Monday. Just feels...off.

Going back to work after Xmas/New Years break is tough. Not liking it at all. At least it's a short week.
