re: Ruger MPR vs Springfield Saint - Geaux Frogs
I purchased the first generation Springfield Saint for around $550 from PSA this Summer. It is great, for roughly the same money you could piece one together with the comparable components....

re: Just bought a Sig P320....ammo rec - Geaux Frogs
Yes...look at PSA for when they offer Fiocchi or Blazer for $7.99/box for range ammo. Usually free shipping if you order 10 boxes or $100...something like that. I always order 1000 rounds at a time. They do affordable bulk cases of Blazer as well, but I am not a fan of bulk ammo...it is usually...

re: Another Vegas thread..looking for things to do 'off the strip' next week - Geaux Frogs
Rent a car, there is a Enterprise counter at the Tropicana, drive to Red Rock Canyon. Hike to the top of Turtle Head Peak. I think it was about 5 miles round trip, so it burned a few hours. From the strip, the park entrance is only about 20 mins. Or, drive the other way about 45 mins. and see Hoo...

re: Fredricksburg, Texas Updated - Geaux Frogs
Tempranillo is the "signature" grape of the region, but, as stated, the wineries use grapes from other regions to produce all varietals. For instance, 4.0 Cellars is a partnership of three different wineries in Texas. The pool the juice to produce all of the varietals and some blends. You...

re: Fredricksburg, Texas Updated - Geaux Frogs
Don't expect Napa, and it can be enjoyable. My in-laws have several B&Bs down there, so that is an easy, low cost weekend away for us. Becker and 4.0 Cellars are decent. Down 290 in the same area as those two is Signor, which is small, but it has a great atmosphere. The Wine Garage has awfu...

re: TruGreen Lawn Care - Geaux Frogs
When we bought our house, the yard had been neglected for a few years. It was 20% patchy grass, and 80% bare dirt. I started working with TruGreen and using the sprinkler system at the house. It took 4 years of lawn treatments, aerations, and lots of high water bills, but my yard is amazing right...

re: Whiskey Myers album dropped today - Geaux Frogs
Whiskey Myers is fun...their album release show is in Dallas tonight. It sold out, so I expect it to be a good time; the scenery is always nice at their shows! These guys are rockstars. They just happen to be from East Texas and sing country music. They are a great live show. They opened a sh...

Anyone have any advice regarding Paso Robles? - Geaux Frogs
The wife and I have done Napa/Sonoma several times, and really enjoy it. We are looking for something a little different, and Paso Robles seems like a good change of pace. Anyone have any recommendations, or criticisms? ...

I have never heard this story, and I spent a lot of time at Bennett's while growing up...my dad drove boats for them as a side gig. I'll have to ask him about it. Thanks for posting the pic!...

re: Shin splints - Geaux Frogs
If your shin facia is currently inflamed, you will not have relief until you stop and let them heal. Ice and stretch them. Several have given tips on exercises to strengthen the muscles and connective tissue, but you have to do that after they heal....

re: Tell me about Maine in the fall - Geaux Frogs
A lot of the shops maybe closing down for the Winter. We went mid-October a few years ago, and all of the little shops were liquidating inventory to close up for a few months. Restaurant hours in the smaller towns were somewhat limited too. There were hardly any crowds since most of the leaves ...

re: Shin splints - Geaux Frogs
I am not a doctor or running coach, I am just a bigger guy who has trained for and run several half marathons, while struggling with severe shin splints...so take my advice for what it is! From what I have read, studies have shown the optimal cadence when running is 180 steps per minute. They ea...

re: Shin splints - Geaux Frogs
New shoes will help, but it isn't a cure all. Try to increase your step cadence. This will cause you to slightly shorten your stride, which allows you to also work on landing softer. I struggled with shin splints all through high school and for about 10 years after. I couldn't afford new sho...

re: Anyone ever been to Salem, MA? - Geaux Frogs
Everyone who has visited seems to get the same idea that we did. My wife is an English teacher and teaches The Crucible, so we planned a stop on the way from Boston to Maine. It was overly cheesy. There probably are some "neat" places to see, but you have to wade through a bunch of garbage to f...

re: Your thoughts on "dynamic pricing"... - Geaux Frogs
If the bots were paying market price...the price people are willing to buy it from from the people who control the bots...it lowers their incentive to have their bots buy the tickets. For instance, George Strait is opening the new area they are building in Fort Worth. Face value is expensive for...

re: Your thoughts on "dynamic pricing"... - Geaux Frogs
If it goes to the artist and their team, I am good with that. Dynamic pricing already happens in the after-market, why should a ticket service make money off of the popularity of an act? Also, I try to buy tickets to the shows I want to go to the day they go on sale. I do that for the right to ...

re: Your thoughts on "dynamic pricing"... - Geaux Frogs
I go to a lot of concerts, and I am not sure that I have ever seen this... How does it work? Is this the promoter/venue charging more, or does the extra money go to the artist and their team? I am not a huge fan of "All tickets include a digital copy of XX forthcoming album!" Then they charg...

re: Any gym owners or former gym owners on this board? - Geaux Frogs
All good points... The lead trainer who everyone follows would now be a partner in the business. He will have incentive to stay and build the business or lose his investment. I guess I missed the mark in my original post. I posted on the Health/Fitness board to get the perspective related to...
