I do not understand why CEH plays over williams
i agree but it’s undrafted free agent vs first round pick, it makes a difference

I just thought it was amusing. How much of the good stuff that you've never used do you keep on hand?
I wouldn't even consider myself a "gun guy" but I keep a box or two of the "good stuff" Hydra-shok in 9mm. But range ammo which is full metal jacket I usually buy in bulk packs (1000 to 1500 round). Usually reup when I get to around 250 rounds. .223 for the AR-15 is the same. A box or two of hollow points for if I ever go coyote hunting and buy 3000 round bulk packs of FMJ for target shooting. I also have a AR-10 which is an AR-15 platform but in .308. I only shoot the "good stuff" in it that is ballistically matched to the reticle of the scope and keep about 200 rounds of it.

This may sound like a lot of ammo but it really isn't at all. Usually a range day with my 9mm I will go through 150 to 200 rounds. The .223 an average range session is 200 rounds or so and the .308 will be around 100.

This is the sort of insider info I come to gE for

I'm thinking about buying a gun for fun.  I really like shooting them.

I had a thread about this a few years ago and gE decided I should not buy one, probably the best decision
I believe that every house hold should have either a handgun or shotgun for home defense depending on your comfort with guns and kid situation. An AR is not a home defense weapon. It is a corvette of guns. Fun to shoot but not really practical for anything other than mass murder.

Edit: I don't feel people should even be allowed to own AR-15 type weapons. I own them because I can. If they were banned tomorrow and there was confiscation (which there never will be) all I would ask is that there be a fair market value buy back and I would be first in line to turn mine in.

Gun guys and gals with kids, how do you convince yourself that you can properly lock your crap up then get to it in the middle of the night if someone is coming into your house and your adrenaline is higher than it's ever been in your life. Seems like executing this flawlessly is even more remote than someone coming into your house while you're there.

since shooting clay pigeons (missing clay pigeons) and shooting a rifle at 4-H camp.


 :bball: I did this too, they didn't tell me what bird shot was. In fact I didn't know bird shot was a thing until like 3 or 4 years ago. I thought those guys on ESPN trap shooting when I was a kid were hitting those clay pigeons with a single bullet.

Side note I just got a buddy of mine a job as the director of operations at Rock Springs.

I don't usually watch NFL football because it sucks, but by watching this game I can see why targeting is an ongoing issue for college players.

An incredibly Midwestern/Southern thing is thinking college sports are better than pro.

I also think the NBA is more fun than college basketball. So there.

Retirement is for suckers. Live in the now and try not to be alive when you're old

4.5 years later and I'm starting to wonder if I'm dying fast enough. I might be forced to think about this retirement scam

No idea if I’m posting this correctly or not, ha. My parents and I rolled into MHK just after 4 pm yesterday. I think some No Quit crowlers in honor of Brady are still available at Manhattan Brewing Co. Thinking we’ll celebrate there/in MHK again next year. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, everybody.

You posted it perfectly. Thank you for putting the virtual toast together. Unfortunately I was stymied by middle school basketball so I couldn't attend like I wanted to. The packaging on those crowlers look great and I'm not a huge beer guy but the description of the drink is definitely something I'd try. I'm sad I'm stuck in Iowa so I can't get either the drinks from Boulevard or Manhattan Brewing.

I'm glad you and your family was happy with the celebration and I can't wait to toast in person with all of you and our goEMAW family next January.  :cheers:
