I really hope HCC gets his poo poo together and gets over his hump. I don't wish him ill even tho I called him an rear end in a top hat. My wizened little black heart likes to speak its mind, tho.

I'm glad he's not dead.

Unless he were to be involuntarily committed, the state wouldn't take his guns, I believe. If he has family or clergy or close friends or something that can convince him to let them babysit the guns for a while that would be best.

I was gonna say, a good psychiatrist can prescribe meds for just about anything.
People's opinion on psych meds and that they are bad often stem from poor prescriptions making it worse.

There's so much drugs out there you do need a doctor that really knows his meds though, it's almost a separate field entirely.

Also, in general the logic to a long-barreled bullseye pistol is how it balances in the hand. Extra weight in the barrel is generally considered a positive thing. The long-barrels aren't inherently more accurate.

Longer sight radius helps too, though I guess it won't matter on a scoped gun.

Guy with the 870 was a Brit visiting with someone at the range during a VA/DC meet last year, he got a kick out of trying all our :911: stuff. We usually do some informal clay shooting, turns out he'd been a trap shooter for years and absolutely destroyed all of us.

This guy is awesome. Look at him unironically doing the Alan Partridge sports-casual look.

I bet he's from Norwich.

e: my girlfriend has pretty nasty depression and has bounced around on a few different meds, but she has been flying pretty straight for the last year or so, thanks to finding meds that work for her. She doesn't do the whole "lying in bed crying for hours / unable to function" thing.

As for me, I've had issues with depression in the past, but have found my way past it, and was never to the point where I needed treatment. A lot of people do though, and I suspect that it wouldn't take too much misfortune for me to wind up in the same state again down the road, as I am obviously prone to it.

I have like permanent depression or something but my personal pride is so intense that I wouldn't give people the satisfaction of killing myself with a gun. That's what they'd except. I'd ritually disembowel myself if it came down to it.

Luckily I've just changed to being bitter and hateful as a coping mechanism.

I believe depression is a result of brain chemistry so this probably won't help all that much, but I think you're a cool, funny guy. So that's one random internet nerd to chalk up.

Amphetamines (for ADHD) have literally no effect other than bad side effects for me. Weird and also sucks, since they're the main drug available.

It shouldn't be. But you will have to re-zero when you change ammo again.

At the very least, your elevation will probably be off from whatever ammo you finally end up using. You may also have difficulties getting the scope zeroed in as tightly as possible if your groups are over-large. If your scope has not yet been sighted in at all, though, using Silver Bear will reduce the amount of time and ammo the next trip takes.

The scope is right out of the box, so that's good to know.

Okay. NIB (and in stock locally) S&W 642 with lawyer lock for $450 plus tax or NIB (but ordered from a distributor) no-lock 642 for $440 plus tax? Seems like a no-brainer to go for the no-lock gun, but for ten dollars more I can have the other one TONIGHT.

And I will be SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES



Edit: Also, should I trade my finicky Remington 700 VLS in .243 for a Mini-14 and a Glock 26 with night sights and a ton of extra mags?

WOWOWOWOW this is bugging the gently caress out of me.

What is the URL to the website that has terrible Geocities type designs and has "JESUS" everywhere...
You know, the beige/tan website with hardly no design (basically everything is a huge list on the front page). Has the Roman type solider holding a gun and a Jesus "fish" at the top?!

Little girls softball included!

I just went through the last few pages of the deal thread to see if it was linked anywhere, to no avail.
