No guns. Know probability.

Inappropriate. You're really revealing more about your own personality than anything else when you say things like that.

Holy crap, 21/30 people who voted own a gun? That's crazy. I'm one of the three people who voted "nope." Guns scare me for obvious reasons, but I definitely understand that it's always better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Im glad i have one but hope i never have to use it other than hunting.....

From craigslist in Savannah, GA

To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah)
Date: 2009-01-06, 3:43AM EST

I was the white guy with the black Burberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to apologize.

I didn't expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?

I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again.

I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster.

I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel recently shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don't know what's going on with that. I hope they haven't permanently cut off your service. I was about to make some threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it. Oh well.

So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I'd like to make it up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like to help you out. I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky.

If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch and laundry.

I'll throw out my list here.

Weatherby .300 mag
Mossberg Tactical Turkey 12
Winchester .270
Ruger .44mag super blackhawk
Winchester 140 12 gauge
3 NEF single shot 20 gauges (great for kids)
Henry 30.30 lever (50th aniversary edition or something)

And several others that escape me right now...

As stated above this post, if guns were clubs, I would have to leave a few behind to make the max 14 on the course.

You mean this video? Nice things about the YouTube tag: 1. You get to see the video 2. We don't have to leave the thread to see it. 3. No risk of rick-rolling on TST.

Colt M4 with EOTech and other goodies, it will have a suppressor before year end.

And thank God I don't live in Chicago anymore cause I don't have to register anything or wait to pick up a new pistol I already paid for.

    • You can use it like Classic and upload via your phone after, but the “Live” part means you can use it live while you play on your phone. That’s not what I’ve said. If the rounds upload successfully they’re removed from the device. But they aren’t always  actually uploaded. Then again, I thought rounds were lost before and they appeared. That’s just “Classic” and you were notified years ago (like four or five) that using newer OSes and the Transfer app was being discontinued. Had you told them about your trip to SV and they just didn’t get it going in time for that, or were they unaware? It’d have been nice to use it there.
    • Day 109 (7/24/21) - Decided that I needed to review the 30-day Covid drills, so I started at the beginning with Day-1 - Early backswing. Did the left and right hand drills then added the pivot to A2, chipping a tennis ball in the yard for about 20-minutes using my 7-iron and 7-wood. When chipping the ball with this drill, I focused making a good turn thru the ball and making sure that my low point was in front of the ball. 
    • You can read my impressions so far here: If I had to make a recommendation right now, I'd say don't do it.  However, I've been in contact with the GG people, and they're trying to improve the performance.  I'd love for it to work, and I'm more than willing to do my part, all we can do is wait to see how it turns out.  
    • Day 2 https://youtube.com/shorts/20xO9_H4diI?feature=share      
    • Okay.  I'll give this a try during tomorrow's round.  I don't remember ever connecting it to my phone to start it up before.  I'm confused about why the rounds were able to be stored in the device but how I started the round affected their upload, but I don't expect anyone here to tell me why their software does what it does. The way I had (I think since I first bought it) used it in the past was to power it on when I walked to the first tee, tag my shots, and connect to the computer after the round to upload, edit, and sign.  For the first four years or so I used it, I think this was working fine.  If there's been a change in what works, an alert from them would have been nice. and now for something stranger:  when the device/phone are paired and I check in the app, there is a listing of one round on the device.  That's exciting, maybe my round data still lives somewhere...
