| SEC Rant|| Why does J. Carville HAVE to represent LSU on TV? - dstone12 on 8/14/14 at 8:19 pm|
I understand, he went to LSU and that he has notoriety
Did we ask him to represent us or did the SEC network ask him and LSU fans just have to sit back and roll their eyes?
ETA: can't we just ask Shaq or can we recruit someone like Alan Faneca or Kevin Faulk to represent us?...

If so, what.....vet tape, glove, or some kind of adhesive?...

| Outdoor Board|| Bapple.........question on barrel length and squib loads - dstone12 on 4/17/14 at 10:23 pm|
When looking at "ballistics by the inch," I always come up with a worthless, but still intriguing question:
[b]How long is too long for a bullet to exit a barrel?[/b]
I would say that excessive length is not really a 'squib' load, since that is usually due to improper powder loading.

So, from what I've seen, and heard, you can't really haggle for a Glock 34 that is already down to $600.
But can you get a significant discount with an accompanying weapon light? Say TLR 1 or 3?
If not, where is the lenience? Are there certain products the LGS will toss in? Are we talk...

| Outdoor Board|| 9mm barrel differences and velocities - dstone12 on 12/18/13 at 5:22 pm|
The Glock 34 barrel is almost 1 inch longer than the Glock 17.
Depending on what you read, that equates to about an additional 50 feet per second.
What does that really mean in real world self defense? What would that extra 50 f/s mean for a 135 or 124 +p round?
Could anyone justify ...

5.56 will be here..........always.
Whether or not the Military goes to a different caliber (which we all highly doubt), too many civilians have bought 5.56 chambered AR's.
With that being said; take a look at 5.45x39 and 7.62x39.....why are they so much cheaper?
