Should I trade in my 870 Express for a Wingmaster?

here's the deal. i bought an 870 express in '09 as a project gun to screw around with. being relatively new to shotties, i wasn't aware that remington's qc had gone down the shitter in regards to the express line as of late. however, i took it to the range with some skeet and to screw around with sl...

Webcomics anyone? Zombie Spit

i'll do anything to pass the time at the office when the bosses aren't around. i've come across a few webcomics that were pretty amusing. while forever being on the hunt for more zombie related stuff, i stumbled across zombie spit. it's a black and white web comic but highly stylized and very entert...

Re: REI - Total Customer Satisfaction

sounds like REI is pretty sweet. i had a bud that used to work at nordstrom and they had a similar policy. return ANYTHING that isn't electronic, and it doesn't matter what happened to it, they'll file the return for you. he's seen/heard of people returning perfume bottles after using most of it, be...

Re: Prototype pack w/kit

i believe his first run is close to, if not already sold out. he does have a site though, and should be putting up the second run up for sale in the near future.

Re: Vibram Five Fingers (VFF)

If your "knees can't take it", as you say, your form is bad . The cushion of the shoe is the least of your worries and, as you are relying on it right now, your chances of joint injury are much higher in the long run. interesting. i figured my jumper's knee + bad meniscus and playing basketball out...

Re: Review w/ Pick's- Bogota Lockpicks

not sure if it was on itstactical, but i do recall someone saying that you could use the spring on retractable ink pens to secure them, then hook a safety pin through the spring as well to hook onto an article of clothing. i tried it and and seems like a pretty secure method.

love the bogota. saw it on a blog, then its tactical as well. tried it on my sliding glass door and was successful once after 30 minutes of trying. turns out i was torquing the tension wrench way too hard. i was under the impression that the pins would "stick" better with more pressure. after a whil...

wonder if michonne is going to be introduced in season 2. i know they spoke about hershel and co, but i really hope the actress playing her does it justice. she's one of my favorite characters besides glenn and abraham.

anyone see the variant of these that was released recently? the "crovel?" looks like they took a page out of the book of the commies and added a crowbar and ninja paracord. i'm impressed by the steel strength of the shovel head. i may have to purchase one for the house. thanks for the review and whe...

Re: COD: Modern Warfare 3

disabling nukes as a killstreak? no me gusta.


for the homefront players, how has the company dealt with patches? my buddy complained of lag and said patches took forever to come out. then again he could be on a flintstones modem powered by his dog on a treadmill or something.

i read world war z. pretty awesome stuff.

these days, the internet is giving most users adhd. even my most academically inclined friends don't read for shit, other than maxim, men's fitness, and stuff like that.

or maybe i just have friends that are just less dumb than i am.
