    Update, not about the site's direction...

    Time for something different. I just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone thank you who sent me well wishes, either on the thread I put up, or on PM's when I told you guys I was having a baby. It's nice to be acquainted with such good people. Unfortunately, I'm not having one anymore. As...

    Today I found out my doctor carries

    I had a doctor's appointment this morning, and left the house ready for work. This meant my primary carry on my back, and my backup in my pocket. I got called back by a nurse, and she asked me to step on the scale. I wasn't thinking about it, and just did it. She commented that I had gained...

    Slight Change of Pace

    I've been reading here the past few days, and there's so much negative stuff. It seems like we can sometimes forget that there's a bright side to life every now and then. I found my bright side not too long ago. My wife and I are going to have a baby. It's a total surprise in every way. We...

    Camping in Georgia

    My wife and I have been talking about going camping sometime soon. Anybody know of any good places that are somewhat secluded, where we would be able to shoot, and not be around people? Also, with a lake/pond/stream nearby? We're south of Atlanta, so either north, south, or even some places...

    reloading Problem

    I've got a 4 stage Lee Turret press, and I had a bullet get stuck in the 4th die today. I was loading .45 Colt rounds, and it was the first one with a new box of bullets. They are .452 diameter. Everything up to the fourth stage was fine, but it won't come out of the fourth die now. It's got...

    Who has a garden?

    I've been thinking about growing some vegetables when the weather gets a little warmer, but I'm not sure of how to start it. I've got a lot of space that gets about 7 hours of sunlight each day that I want to use. I think I'm going to have to elevate it (railroad ties to box it in) because I'm...

    What makes a mushroom?

    This may not be the appropriate place for this, so hopefully I won't get kicked out.... :sarcastic: What makes a bullet mushroom? The real reason I ask is a long story, and I'm leaving out most of the details for a lot of reasons. I was at a party last week and a friend of mine had a .38 spl...

    Steven Segall - Lawman

    Has anybody seen this yet? I watched it last night. The show credits him with 20 years LEO experience. It looked like every bust he made was handed to him once the BG was subdued. Either way, I don't care. It was entertaining when he was shooting.

    Who here reloads? I've been thinking about getting into it. I have enough land around my house that allowed me to set up my own range. I'm shooting at least once a week, average 150 rounds. From an accessibility standpoint, it makes sense to reload. Ammo is still hard to find in my area...

    When to Draw

    I was having a discussion with a friend of mine yesterday, and this came up. What factor pushes you to the point that you would draw your weapon on someone? I was in a situation not too long ago, and drew on someone. I shouldn't have done that. In that particular setting, I shouldn't have...
