Thought it was pretty good. This gonna be a straight 3-day miniseries, or will it be one episode (shown repeatedly) a week?

Does she shoot? If the answer is any variation of "not really", then I'd say:
One fullsize, comfortable, fun to shoot. That will encourage actual range time, and get her used to shooting. Get her used to the bang, and get her hand/eye coordination used to accurate sighting. Plan on her sh...

[quote]They're not as bad as many here will say. Ugly, heavy, cheap but utterly reliable and more accurate than most will admit. They are blow-back operated and the barrel is fixed to the frame which means very few actionable parts and barrel alignment never changes.
But I'd still never...

Slickguns- tends to find good deals.
If I know what, and I want to find it cheapest, I use Gunwatcher.
On that site, it gives you a blank google-type interface, and you type in a name. It finds the item and breaks it down into stores (like Buds), auctions (gunbroker and gunsamerica only, not gu...

I'll comment to the OP: I noticed this the one time I watched the show, and it irritated me too. The show wasn't very good anyway, and getting some random Bama fan crap from a show set in La, from one of the main characters, that just turned me off completely. Hadn't bothered to watch the show since...

Despite what the media hype says, if I was Tennessee I wouldn't do it. I don't think Mariotta is an upgrade over Mett, and they'd require different offenses to run.
The media would scream, but I'd keep Mett and build around him. You have the picks to make some nice moves, and if you are patient ...

I'm an LSU fan. I like what Fournette brings to the field.
At this point, you have to put him behind Chubb and Elliot. They were more productive, and showed a lot more elusiveness and cutting ability. Chubb showed more vision in his first game than Fournette did at any point last season, and Elli...

Steele + Orgeron is a huge upgrade over Chavis when it comes to recruiting, and despite our high rankings we had started to lag a bit at some positions. If you can't get the players, no scheme will save you.
Chavis might be the better scheme guy, but Chavis' schemes with Welter at MLB was pretty ...
