  1. Yeah, I get that some people just like the heft of an all steel or all metal handgun. I appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of a well done 1911 or Hi-Power. I just don't get the mindset that makes someone so defensive and angry about a pistol that they feel the need to disparage it at every opportunity. Perhaps it's because while they spent $1500 on a Kimber that chokes fairly often and only holds 8-rounds, they are angry at people that spent $500 on a pistol that can go thousands of rounds flawlessly and hold 15 or 17 rounds. But so do S&W M&Ps, and HKs, and Berettas... But Glock is the firearm that triggers them.

    Best Movie I’ve Seen All Year

    Exceptionally well done and artfully crafted. But each story was a tragedy, I want to cut myself now.

    Dennis Quaid sees the light...

    I used to have the same view; and I still do to some extent. I had dinner last week with the VP of Recovery Centers of America. We had dated right before I had met my ex-wife and I dumped her due to her addiction issues. She was in the area to attend a conference so we met up and had a wonderful time. She explained that some people are genetically predisposed to be addicts. Their brains are wired differently. And that wiring also determines what they are addicted to. She said that while I could drink wine every day and stop and never touch it again no problem, she would have one glass and be drinking 3 bottles a day by the end of the week. I disclosed to her that I tried marijuana a few times and never got into it. Even tried crack once in California and didn't get it. She said that's because I'm not an addict. She said people predisposed to addiction run a very high risk of getting addicted to certain substances after just one or two uses. I told her that I was a smoker and addicted to nicotine. She said everyone gets addicted to nicotine, lol... So, she told me some pretty heart-breaking stories of people with bright futures that had plenty of self-discipline, but they happened to go to a party where the substance that they were most susceptible to was available. One snort and their lives were ruined. Just say no...

    First thing I think of when I think of Dennis Quaid is that he had one of the coolest movie cars ever in Innerspace...
  6. Yeah, but Chevy really does suck...

    winter storm ,

    It was snowing pretty heavily at the Charlotte office earlier. I just looked at the camera and it's stopped. Some snow plow guy just did a lap in the half inch of slush. Guess the 3-5" prediction was way off. And I hope we're not paying this guy to push water around our parking lot...

    It sounds like a freaking awesome place! My dream is to get my novels finished and published and live off the royalties in an old cabin by a lake...

    Dang! Your pipes freeze at 15?? Are you in a mobile home with no skirting? I'm in a crappy old house with a barely functioning gas stove and I have never had my pipes freeze since I've lived here, and I've seen -15 degrees before.

    My dad just sent me a video of him at the Yuma, AZ annual Lighted Christmas parade. Everyone was wearing coats and hats and bundled up. Checked the current temps and it's freaking 62 degrees. Sissies...

    Our North Carolina office is freaking out over that storm. I'm monitoring it. 3"-5" of snow tonight in Charlotte, as well as freezing rain. It's going to be a mess. Out here, we're getting some snow starting Sunday, and then lasting all week. I'm driving 400 miles down to Southern Idaho on Monday or Tuesday. Should be an adventure.
  12. I'm on a couple of other firearms forums and it seems with every thread involving a Glock pistol or one in which the virtues of a Glock pistol are mentioned, there will be a few people that have so much hate and personal vitriol towards Glocks that they have to chime in and rant. I don't get it. There are dozens of striker-fired polymer pistols on the market today and most are very similar to the Glock pattern, yet mention you bought a new Beretta APX and crickets. Mention you bought a Glock and people will start making snide comments about tupperware and kool-aid(?). They remind me of people who hate Donald Trump. Any mention of the name and they are triggered and HAVE to make a snide comment. I don't get the need for the snide comments in every Glock thread. I happen to think that the 1911 is a great pistol with some great attributes, but on paper, it is a horrible choice for CCW due to weight, capacity, and unreliability. Yet I have never gone into a thread that someone is bragging about their new $2500 1911 (although it's having feeding issues, it will break-in after a few hundred rounds...) and start dragging it down. I think 90% of Glock haters are over 60, divorced, from the Southern half of the United States, and probably voted for Buchanan...
