| Outdoor Board|| Everyday Carry Knives - Tom288 on 2/20/14 at 9:36 am|
Just picked up a Cold Steel Recon I and it's a great knife, but I'm thinking it might be a little too big. What do you guys carry?

| Outdoor Board|| Sig P226 MK25 - All black or desert finish? - Tom288 on 1/12/14 at 1:47 am|
In my search for a 9mm pistol I moved on from the Glock 17 and ultimately settled on a Sig P226 MK25, an identical model to the pistol issued to SEALs according to Sig. I just couldn't take a DA only pistol, so out went the Glock.
I'm trying to decide between the all black model and the Flat D...
| Gaming Board|| COD: Ghosts/Battlefield 4 Campaigns - Tom288 on 1/6/14 at 4:08 am|
Jesus, what a load of garbage. You would think it wouldn't be hard to develop a legit FPS given the source material these guys have to work with, but after MW1 it's been all downhill. I liked MW2 and 3 better than Ghosts and Battlefield 4. Talk about horrible NPCs, teammates you don't give a shit...
| Outdoor Board|| Advice on the unthinkable... - Tom288 on 1/6/14 at 4:01 am|
Some of you may know that I'm a diehard 1911 fanboy, but out of nowhere I've noticed this itch to pick up a 9mm Glock. :banghead: :lol:
I'm going to look at the Gen4 Glock 17 and Glock 34. Any random thoughts or advice? The 17 would be easier for a carry gun since it's a bit smaller,but I've re...
| Outdoor Board|| Gun safe/cabinet recommendation? - Tom288 on 1/1/14 at 2:33 pm|
I'm looking for a reasonably priced safe or well-constructed cabinet for storing rifles/pistols & ammo. However, I'm in an apartment right now so I'm not looking for a premium, fire-resistant heavy safe at the moment, just something that offers good storage. I currently have 4 rifles and 3 pistols...

Sometimes when I'm bored I'll do some reload drills at home, obviously it's not real practice but it passes the time. :lol:
I use a couple extra mags loaded with FMJ's. Anyway, I've never bothered cycling through the rounds so the first couple cartridges in each mag have been rechambered quite a...

| Outdoor Board|| Sig 226 vs. HK USP series - Tom288 on 9/14/13 at 9:42 am|
I'm considering picking up a P226, not sure which edition yet, or an HK USP 45, again not sure which specific edition. I'm going to fire both, but was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts.
I've looked up reviews and forum threads from other sites and, quite annoyingly, have found posts sayi...
| Gaming Board|| Anybody played Outlast yet? (Or Machine for Pigs) - Tom288 on 9/10/13 at 7:16 am|
Outlast was just released a couple of days ago and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was released several hours ago...doesn't hurt to check...so has anyone played either yet? Thoughts?
I've got them both loaded but haven't been able to give them a shot yet....
| Gaming Board|| Prior Splinter Cell Games required before Blacklist - Tom288 on 8/31/13 at 12:42 pm|
I have all of them in my library except for Pandora Tomorrow, but have only ever beaten the first game. If I jump into Blacklist will I be missing a lot or is it pretty much a standalone experience?...
| Gaming Board|| Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs & Outlast coming in September - Tom288 on 8/23/13 at 9:40 am|
Anybody looking forward to these games? Both horror/adventure games. The first Amnesia was great so I have confidence that the sequel should be enjoyable as well. Hoping Outlast is as good as it's looked.
Amnesia comes out September 10th, Outlast September 4th
| Outdoor Board|| Wilson Lo-Profile Mags - Tom288 on 8/21/13 at 5:38 pm|
I have standard 47D's, but have never liked how they protrude so much from the bottom. Makes for a less comfortable grip. Has anyone used their Lo-Profile mags (7 or 8rd)? Do they make a considerable difference? More comfortable?

| O-T Lounge|| Scientists needed for production of a sterilization dart gun - Tom288 on 7/13/13 at 10:57 am|
While killing all of the low-life, racist retards that have come out of the woodwork lately would be too drastic, my conscience would be perfectly content with unfricking the gene pool as much as possible.
Volunteers? Maybe we can put something together for one of those project fundraising sites?...
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone have a Gun Trust? - Tom288 on 7/11/13 at 9:07 am|
I've been looking into them as they "seem" to make the process of purchasing NFA/Class III firearms, silencers, SBRs, etc., a much smoother one. For instance, you don't have to get your CLEO to sign off on what you're trying to purchase. There are other benefits as well, and the price to set one u...

I've always been the black sheep in my little herd and can't really stand anyone in my family, immediate or otherwise. What about the OT, does everyone come from perfect households or can anyone relate to the significant distinction between "family" and "relatives?" :lol:...

| O-T Lounge|| Who here has asthma and what helps? - Tom288 on 5/21/13 at 4:08 pm|
I was diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma which was a bitch in high school but as I've gotten older the symptoms have expanded. Tightness of chest, shallow breathing, that constant urge to "catch" a full breath. Albuterol has never helped, the only thing that does is something like Bronkaid and P...

I keep my newer stuff in the safe, along with the older stuff so far, but I'd like to start displaying some of the historical pieces I've picked up over the years. Most are rifles from the Second World War. Anyone have any experience with a solid display piece for rifles (ideally a mount for 2 rif...

I've been flashed 4 times while driving and have always thought that has to be an unusually high amount of times for an individual, and these all occurred between 16 and 20-21. But who knows, maybe 4 times is low on the scale?
Oh, and that's 4 times by women, just to be clear. So if you have ex...
