(Which is way the "Carters shoot flatter BS" is so annoying to me.)

-I post on a number of forums and not just SCP. They all have their own ethos (but that doesn't mean I automatically subscribe to them).

-I shoot semi too.
I would like to think so, but whenever I start coming around to that conclusion again, I see something by one of you guys(you and B in particular) that makes me remember why I was annoyed. Whether it's here, SCP(where I rarely pose, but quietly lurk), the Guild, there always seems to be one of you two slapping a negative spin on things.

I'm all for defeating and declaiming hype. I just think it can be done in a more productive and uplifting manner.


B-

I see through it completely. We both know that foam goodie under the shroud is the baffle for a surpressor. Anyone with a brain knows that. Anyone that doesn't have a brain has already bought a barrel from one of the more efficient and shiny hype machines.

Companies have the right to treat people however they like. It may harm their business, but that's their call. I'm not surprised he acted the way he did, getting needled on several different boards. Especially since it was the same couple people doing the poking.

Be careful jwigum you are are treading dangerously close to be accused of being an alter ego of the saint.....you are not allowed to disagree with chef or b...form your own opinons? Preposterous, we have already given you your opinion now get used to it. At least thats the way I see it. C'mon guys label me a clone, I double dog dare you! It's your m.o. after all. Or you could label me a promoter with an agenda, which is the other m.o., instead of someone with an opinion about a product. See there you go with the opinion thing, not allowed, not allowed.I keep forgetting that I am not allowed to use my opinion and neither is anyone else.

That is a universal truth. Off topic Drum.....Have you picked up sirius satellite yet? They have a killer channel on there called Jam On...Dead, Phish, gov't Mule etc...live stuff rare stuff etc. It really is amazing, plus all the other channels. figured I 'd share, one of the best tech purchases I have ever made.

I've been floating around the idea of Sirius for a while now.

How is the consistency of signal when traveling?

It is very good. I have the portable sporster set and have had relativley few issues. Sometimes signal is blocked when you move under a long large overpass like the one on the schuylkull expressway. In most major citys they have ground transponders that catch the signal from the satellite and then relay it to your carmounted antenna. I have the car kit, which if you get a professional install on will hide the wires of the antenna. It all runs thru your car stero, sound quality is great. I haven't listend to regular radio since buying it. I even bought a boombox dock so I can listen to it in my work truck. And in a crazy bonus my new jeep came equipped with sirius and a free year subscription, so now I have it in both cars plus the work truck.

I heard that satellite transmissions cause cancer, so I'll just stick to cd's and hd fm. Could be that I'm paranoid, or just old. But happy to be old enough to have rocked through middle age. But I'm not grumpy, I only get grumpy when I don't get no satisfaction

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

If satellite transmissions cause cancer, we're all screwed anyway.

Nice segway, by the way.
