Let me first say I do think they have the talent to be MAC Champs. However, the new coaching regime has made a lot of changes that may not be beneficial, most likely long term. Clawson was an extremely disciplined HC and Babers has come in and is more relaxed. Most of the players I know said it is great for the upperclassmen, but they are pretty concerned for the younger guys.

Before anyone asks, yes, I am a current student at BGSU and yes I know many players due to my major.

I own two of them. I have lots of information if you need it. I have about 15,000 through the first and about 300 through the second. Never a hiccup.

Less of a chance than my .223/5.56. The .45ACP is a big and slow bullet, drywall yes...Multiple layers of drywall, still likely, but not as likely as my .223 which will penetrate a lot of things in a short distance with its size and speed.

Edit: In short, those are my two legitimate options at the moment.

You will find a different opinion or option from literally everyone that owns a firearm. I prefer to use a caliber/firearm that will not penetrate walls and potentially harm someone else. I like my 1911, but it is heavy and some people have not had good experiences with reliability and this platform.

You hit the nail on the head with user friendly. But, user friendly is different to everyone. There are a few shops that you have the opportunity to rent a firearm and see what is most comfortable to you. Make sure you can operate the firearm in the dark and in high stress situations, adrenaline can be counterproductive when you lose fine motor skills. I am more confident with a SBR in the middle of the night than I am with a pistol, I have fired thousands upon thousands of rounds with rifles. I am confident in my ability with my pistol, but ideally I would have an SBR in a pistol caliber (someday soon). That is my preference and it is definitely different than other enthusiasts.

I would suggest after purchasing a firearm to take A LOT of time and get to know the weapon. Fire hundreds of rounds through it. If you buy a semi-auto make sure you know what ammunition will cycle and feed reliability and what ammunition will not. Know how much lubrication your firearm likes. Some like to be "dirty" and some like to be wet (insert dirty joke here). 

I would be available to email back and forth with you if you have any specific questions that you would not want to be in an open forum. I am a firearm enthusiast and I think and talk about this all the time. Make sure you get as much information/opinions as you can to make sure you make the best choice for you and your family.

Thats good advice. I have a rule about information: Take 15% of the top and the bottom of all information and focus on what you find in the middle. Nothing is ever as great or as bad as some people would like us to believe.

BTW, jealous of the M1A trigger time.

I would look into the Savage bolt actions. Their accutrigger is pretty nice and their price point is more than fair. There are lots of options for you, due the research. It should be more than manageable to find a rifle that meets all of your introductory needs for even under $500.

Alabama has had some regular marquee games recently. But I do believe some of the other schools at the top of the SEC food chain will have to leave their comfort zone.

Whatever .22LR I have close to me. I also enjoy my STI 1911, but due to lack of funds, have reduced that to my trusty night companion.

GSG1911-22, S&W MP15-22 are my typical .22 go to's with my full size AR.

Quickness is the ability to accelerate/decelerate and change direction. Speed is the players top end speed in general. For example of why quickness is very important: someone can have a great top end speed but it may take them a period of time to reach that speed, someone who is "quicker" may get to them before they can run away.

Wow. This is cool. I can't think of anything to say that would be able to justify the awesomeness of this honor to those who have sacrificed more than any of us can understand.

Comment 05 Oct 2013

This is just a shame. This is tough for everyone involved. You have to wonder at what point he won't be able to handle this and his responsibilities to Minnesota. 

Comment 04 Oct 2013

This is unfortunate for this guy and the team. I don't think it will negatively effect the Cats that much, they are going to be pumped and prepared for this game and with this injury, another guy gets a chance to shine in primetime (rhyming not intended).
