I have between 1500-2000, and that will last me quite awhile.
Last time out, my brother and I shot off some older ammo that was actually beginning to get cruddy. It still was able to load in my old revolver, and I just had to clean the heck out of it afterwards :cheers:!
There are multiple issu...

[quote]Martin gone [/quote]Not so fast there. We're all enjoying his games against Kentucky, Fla and Auburn, but don't forget he disappeared against both Tennessee and A&M [i]after[/i] the Kentucky game (which is when the light supposedly came on).

[quote]What is the deal w/ Martin?
Is it that his effort has increased, or is it that the light has finally come on for him? [/quote]Y'know, it's hard to say. I thought his game had become more consistent, but honestly, go back and look at the past several games: big game against Kentucky (L), i...

I think he has a pretty big, La'el Collins-type decision coming up.
Right now, he has the body to play in the NBA. He's shown 1st rd caliber play, [i]in spurts.[/i] He's also disappeared at times, including recently against Tennessee and A&M.
If I was an NBA GM, he might be a cautious low 1st...

[quote]Wow, people love to complain. And interestingly, this is almost identical to something one of the commentators said, about LSU not using their bench players while in a blowout.
For the record, LSU is not guaranteed a spot in the NCAA tournament. If they go on a losing streak now (something...
| Tiger Rant|| re: coach jones does not like to use his bench - Scoob on 2/24/15 at 10:34 pm|
This is not the time to back off. We're still fighting to just make it into the NCAA tourney; and the main reason we're not already a lock is because the starters have been inconsistent. So when you finally get these guys playing well, you leave them in and keep it rolling. ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Who can we least afford to lose next year, Mickey or Martin - Scoob on 2/24/15 at 1:57 pm|
Mickey's got a pretty unique skillset that we would miss; it's a lot easier to predict someone coming in and being athletic etc (Simmons), than to say someone will come in and immediately block a lot of shots.
I also don't quite get the assumption that Mickey leaving is a foregone conclusion. Sur...
| SEC Rant|| re: concept football helments - Scoob on 2/24/15 at 1:48 pm|
most are awful. Helmets should look good from the stands, not just on TV closeups on a 50" screen.
Will say this: the Maryland concept is better than their current one.
I'm waiting for Oregon to just go with a simple, basic design: a big Nike swoosh on an otherwise bare helmet. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Final 4 team next year - Scoob on 2/24/15 at 1:10 pm|
Takes a lot to make a run to the Final Four.
We would need our guards to take the next step in order to be a favorite, but it could be possible.
Hornsby (or someone)- you need a dead-eye 3 pt shooter, someone that kills the zone. We currently have guys who CAN hit the 3, but you want at least o...

In non-Olympic years, it's "nice" to win any of the listed sports, to the average fan.

By the 5th and 6th rounds, you're going for potential. Most NFL teams will take a chance on "random LSU defensive end/pass rusher", just based on past history. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Final 4 team next year - Scoob on 2/24/15 at 9:19 am|
Truthfully, I think this depends on Quarterman.
We assume Simmons will be unstoppable; he may well be, but will still need help.
As much as people speculate on Martin and Mickey, I say we go ahead and consider them gone for now.
You still need Hornsby to do just what he's doing now, but y...

He could end up being great, but I would say he has a lot of similarities to Tyrann Mathieu (very talented playmaker, bad influences around him, got a little too big for his britches). Like Honey Badger, Winston really needs to go somewhere far away from home and start fresh.
Tampa is about the wor...

This is such a dead-end argument.
We had a transitional offense last season, there were NO experienced players returning.
If just Hill had returned, we would have had a dynamic and dominant rushing game.
If just one of OBJ or Landry had returned, that WR would likely have been all-SEC. He ...
