I am thinking of buying a Bersa UC .45ACP, a Kel-Tec .380 ACP bug and a Hi-Point .45 ACP carbine.

Default new indoor water feature

so i walked into my basement last night during a torrential downpour to play some COD BLOPS and heard the sound of running water. In the basement guest room mother nature had decided to install a water fall through my basement well window. looking through the window was like looking into a murky aquarium. so i run out side and start bailing like stranded canoer and completely forgot that my daughters "pet" toad lived in that well. my pit bull named buell had followed my outside to see what all the commotion was and as soon as i realized that my most recent bucket full had an amphibious passenger he decided to catch the flying toad mid air. so now not only is my basement a soggy mess but my daughter is now saying i fed her toad to the dog. turns out the drain at the bottom of the well was clogged and simply needed to be cleared out. but i cant help feeling guilty about that damn toad. I cant even imagine what was going through his head as his home flooded, he went airborne, and a giant furry beast decided to go for frog legs. fml

I wouldn't have told my daughter and I'd have found a new toad to put in the window well. YIKES!! I hate when things like that happen.

How often do any of you spend more money on accessories for a gun than you paid for the gun itself?

I'm going to guess that it was probably a canine tooth.

Gator skin is much tougher in my experience (I have a pair of gator boots that I have worn off and on for nearly 30 years and they are visibly worn but still in great condition). Might be difficult to keep the skin stretched with thin grips though. You would have to have a strong foundation for it I would think.
Do you know of any websites that custom make grips?

OH! *rimshot*

Update on super-ninja-chuck-norris-worlds-best-marksman coming shooting with us today: My shooting partner Rick and I took him up to the un-official Forestry Service range this morning. We set up a few targets close up from roughly 7-50 yards and we put clays all over the place up between 100 and 180 yards.
This gentlemen has spent years telling me he can, "Hit an egg at 100 yards with ANY pistol you give me..." "Hit clays all day at 600 yards..." and "Shoot bullseyes with anything while running..." Making claims like, "I'm the most ridiculous shot you've ever seen, just wait!" "Everyone who has ever shot with me has said I'm the best they've ever seen." "I'm not sponsored like a pro, but right up there with 'em."
In his first 5 turns he went a whopping 2/50 on the clays . At first it was because 'my gun sucks,' so he tried Rick's AR. Then it was because ARs suck. Then he tried a 10/22, and it was because there was something wrong with reality. He was swearing he was dead on, but the intact clays seemed to suggest otherwise.
Later he tried to shoot handguns and I must admit, he did get a few rounds on the paper (though not in the rings). It was atrocious. It was so bad I almost felt sorry for the guy. Almost.
