| Outdoor Board|| Will we ever see 1000 round boxes of 22LR on the shelves again? - Mahootney on 9/19/14 at 1:52 pm|
I can't even get a box of 22LR in any size.
I remember walking into stores and seeing 22LR piled up like shotgun shell boxes.
Kinda defeats the purpose of getting a gun to splurge on ammo with if the ammo has now become precious. :lol:...
| Outdoor Board|| Sighting in a Rifle: Do you put the target dead-center or just below the target? - Mahootney on 9/19/14 at 11:25 am|
It really doesn't matter which method you use as long as you are consistent.
I just wanted to get some opinions from the OB on which is preferred.
Do you "lollipop" also known as the 6 o'clock method, which is when the scope dot is just below the target?
Or do you put the scope dot on the point...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is there ever going to be a Jacksonville RB worth playing? - Mahootney on 9/16/14 at 10:04 am|
I was stupid and fell for the Gerhart hype.
Took him in the 8th or 9th, and thought he was a good value there because he'd be the primary back.
You know, volume touches with no competition.
A whole lotta nuthin is nuthin....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Pierce or Forsett? - Mahootney on 9/16/14 at 9:54 am|
Week 1, Forsett looked like the lead back, but I know that the Pierce fumble had alot to do with it.
Week 2, Pierce got the majority of the touches, and Forsett only had decent fantasy value b/c of the long run at the end of the game.
Either of these backs worthy of a Flex position?
Do you tr...
| Tech Board|| Surround Sound installation recommendations - Mahootney on 9/16/14 at 9:47 am|
I've got a Bose system that we just inherited, with an Onkyo receiver. :cheers:
I'm not opposed to paying for someone to install the system if it's worth it.
Is there a fair-priced installation company that you recommend?
Do I pull the speaker wires myself?...

| Gaming Board|| Looking for a Great Tower Defense game - Mahootney on 9/15/14 at 3:35 pm|
There was a "game mode" on one of the earlier Warcrafts that was what I think is a "Tower Defense" game.
Basically, creeps spawn every so often and you build your towers and upgrade them to prevent them from getting through.
What made that Warcraft version so much fun was that:
1) it was multip...

After getting some advice from the Tech board to consider Tech 21 for a protective, slim-fitted phone case, I discovered they have alot of options and it was a little difficult to determine the actual differences.
So, I'm going to share my research with the board to hopefully save you some time i...

Doesn't have to be super nice.

I hear they released a recommended fix of blowing on the speaker membrane, but macrumors also sited instances of having to do this several times a day.
I'd like to have a fairly slim, yet protective case, and I like their design the best. But, it kinda defeats the purpose of having a phone if noo...

I saw one the other day and it sparked my interest. It claims to add 80, 100, or 120% extra battery life to your phone.
With larger screens and higher resolution displays consuming more battery, I'm interested in finding a way to extend the battery li...

I'm looking at Louisiana Sportsman's classifieds to see if I can score a discounted bow.
So, I thought I'd kick around the topic on here.
When do you start practicing for hunting season?
Do you have any axle-to-axle or brace height preferences? What is your reasoning behind them?

One of the commentators was talking about a tall Russian having problems with Sochi due to the ice conditions.
