Well ..... I come here this morning with a joyful sadness . My little river rancher got sold out from under my wing the minute it became alive and well again . Yes like a injured wild animal , I helped it live again and had to release it back into the wild . I got to put 3 whole miles on it with everything working perfectly before the trailer came with a undeserving owner who can not appreciate the work put into it , a bozo who will claim he made it live again , he will claim HE restored it but all he will do is put a spark plug in it since that is about the limit of his abilities .
I did have a box with some parts and bolts I had yet to put back on and I refuse to tell him where the chit goes , he can effing figure it out .

If gun control works, why do US citizens keep getting attacked by armed pirates?

Random rant: why do people lie on the internet? The best I can reason, its gotta be an attention thing. But how does getting the attention of a dozen anonymous people really make your day any better?? I specifically mean men who pretend to be "hot chicks"...really guys? Really? You must have some gender issues if you want THAT kind of attention from other guys. Id go as far as to say maybe there's a closeted transgender in there somewhere. Im all for expressing yourself, (I guess?) i just hate liars. With a passion. The end.

Is it a Mac? from what I hear the Apple Maps app would have chosen that as the quickest route.

On the other hand, I recently bought a remanufactured iPad from Apple, it shipped from Hong Kong and made it here 4 days earlier than expected.

Not a good thing at a roadblock; you don't want them to think you are nervous.

The thing to keep in mind with pistol ammo is that fragmentation is not a good thing. Rifle rounds have a completely different wound profile and fragmentation has a totally different effect than with pistol rounds. So in rifle rounds, specifically M193 and M855, if the moon and stars are aligned and the fragmentation occurs before the bullet exits the body, some seriously ugly wound cavities can occur. But in pistol rounds, as you will see in the video, they don't travel very far or do very much.

Pay attention to what he says in the last half of the video about this test as compared to other hollow points. Fast forward to about 2:00 if you just want the meat and potatoes of the test and aren't interested in the conditions etc.

What did you decide Mo?

There are too many fat people wearing thick overalls around here; I will stick with heavier projectiles.
