*Shrugs* A very rough, conservative estimate would put me at about 38 days on 11W since joining.  If we're talking about minutes, we're talking slackers.

Comment 22 Jul 2015

Eh, I'd advise against the Mini-14.  All the flaws of the M1 Garand/ M14 rifles, plus some extra ones, plus it's in an intermediate, rather than full size, cartridge and it costs way too much.  If you want a rifle in .223 Rem, you might as well get a midrange AR-15.  Cheaper rifle, better rifle, cheaper mags, cheaper, and more, accessory options.

Comment 22 Jul 2015

That's fair enough.  I was basing my argument on the fact that the LCR's barrel is so short, you get all the recoil of .357 Mag, but none of the extra velocity, especially over something like Speer's Short Barrel 38 +P.

Most people find them annoying (Me, included!) but a firearm with a magazine safety- a safety that prevents the firearm from fighting without a magazine inserted- might be of some help in this case.  Pull the magazine, and, even if you forget to pull the round from the chamber, the safety goes on, making it as safe as it can be.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

I think a lot of the advice depends on what kind of clothes you want to wear with it, and if you want to stick with 9mmP or go to some other cartridge, too.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

Actually, the advice for using a revolver as a backup gun comes from the assumption that you'll be in body contact with your attacker.  If jam an automatic into your attacker's body, you can push the slide back, and out of battery.  The gun will then fail to fire, since either the breech will be unlocked (and a good gun will *not* fire with an unlocked breech) or the firing pin won't be able to reach the primer in a blowback pistol.  Also, it's more likely to fail to cycle properly, even if it does fire, under those circumstances.  A revolver doesn't have these problems.

Note that this evaluation only applies to backup guns- guns you're using if things have really gone down the pipe.  There are other considerations for a primary carry piece.

If you're looking for a revolver, I'd recommend the Ruger LCR in .38 Special.  It's lightweight, the trigger is quite good for a DAO, and fits rather nicely into a pair of jeans pockets. (Not skinny jeans, obviously.)  You can also tuck it IWB easily, or put it just about anywhere.  It's light enough you'll never notice.  There's nothing wrong with the Smith, but I can recommend the Ruger since I've carried one for two years.

I'd also recommend sticking to the .38 snubbie version.  The .357 Mag version is heavier for no real added benefit,  and the 22. LR an WMR versions don't have enough power.  The 9mm version needs moonclips, I think, so I'd skip that too.  Also, get the Speer .38 Special +P ammo that's specifically for snub-nose revolvers.  It uses a different powder to get the bullet up to speed in the short barrels.  And practice, practice practice.

The short lived NCAA Basketball game had recruiting violations as an option in one of its editions.  And NCAA Football used to have discipline problems in the game, too.  I suspect those got yanked by the NCAA  for giving people bad impressions of the sport.

Comment 16 Jul 2015

I had a blog post that was around 200 UVs or so.  On one of the earlier site versions, so I can't recall how many, exactly.  I doubt it's a record, though.

So... lemme understand you.  You've been on 11W since it's inception, but your account is just from this month.  You know Dr James Andrews personally, and he, in violation of the ethical and legal standards of his profession, is telling you Braxton Miller is done with football.  You sling insults, then complain about the class of others.  You know everything about sports, come at you bro anytime, but seem to think Braxton Miller is bad at football.  And, I assume, that Ezekiel Elliot is the Greatest Running Back of All Time, fuck that Barry Sanders guy.  (Or, just for Ohio State, and to hell with Archie Griffin.) 

And now, you've been on Adderall for 25 years, but it's only been approved for use for 20 years.  Anything else you want to tell us about?  The secret Medal of Honor you won in Pakistan?   The stock tips you gave Warren Buffett?  That time you totally hooked up with Kate Upton?

I knew I shouldn't have read it, since it's all ghosted out, but I did anyway.  I'd make a more detailed reply, but I need to go get checked for cancer after getting through all of that.  Just quickly- you claim to have been a Buckeye fan for decades, but do you remember anything about 2011-2013?  I do.  If Brax can throw, Brax starts.

Comment 08 May 2015

I still remember when people wanted to pull Decker's scholarship and drive him out of the state on a rail after one game.  And most of those guys figured the other four would be backups to the better recruits we would magically get.

Basically, I think we've seen enough to believe that our coaching staff know what they're doing when it comes to the line.  In the meantime, I'll continue fretting exactly 0 seconds over where a high school kid decides to go to college.

What's in a hotdog, anyway?

Processed horse penis and Chinese people.  At least, in the future, that's what's in a hotdog.
