    Real Guns

    As far as I know, 9mm seems to be the best option for us. We're still a long way out from actually getting any range time, let alone establishing what kind of guns we'd go for. It's all on-paper, theoretical stuff at the moment. We do have a couple of classes happening soon that'll give both...

    Real Guns

    I might apply for an M1 myself, but the priority is getting carry guns for my dad and I. The current discussion is on 9mm revolvers, since we're both going to want to avoid reliability issues if we get forced to buy trash/cheap 9mm rounds. Haven't found anything particular interesting but...

    Real Guns

    Been following the Kentucky Ballistics affair and good Lord, that was hard to listen to. I'm suspecting a sabotaged round more than anything, from what I've heard. I also had a talk with my dad in light of that incident and with the ammo shortages in mind, and I suggested to him that we might...

    Forza Horizon 4: General Discussion

    I'm just starting to get back into Horizon 4, and catching up on some DLC and missed story content. Is the Upgrade Heroes el camino mission something that I can score 3-star on, in the Winter? I feel like the reduced grip and added instability in Winter was making the car bog down.

    Why not just go hot pink and be the troll of the gun ranges? :lol:

    GTPlanet vs. Mariah Carey [2020]

    I have survived 2020 without getting Carey'd - although I had a scare when I flipped on CNN to watch the countdown and saw them interviewing her. Immediate hearing aid removal followed by a scramble to hit the mute button on the remote.:lol: Happy new year to all.

    GTPlanet vs. Mariah Carey [2020]

    Made it to Christmas morning without Carey catching me. Now to survive the rest of the year.

    Real Guns

    Got my LTC in the mail last Saturday or so. My dad and I swung by a Bass Pro to look at safes and cases and i don't think either of us liked the options available. Also why the 🤬 is bass pro so packed in the middle of a pandemic?! @Michael88 That thing must kick like a b...you know...

    GTPlanet vs. Mariah Carey [2020]

    My dad got Carey'd four more times in the span of a single shift today. I think he needs a new job.

    I pronounce it as neesh and haven't heard the other pronouncuation.

    GTPlanet vs. Mariah Carey [2020]

    My dad is out. He started at the wine department today, and he got knocked out on his first day "I'm out of the gtplanet Xmas song contest. [Work] at 822p 12/1"

    GT Sport Duel of the Week (Inactive)

    The GT lost on every single metric I tested. It is not the faster car.

    GT Sport Duel of the Week (Inactive)

    Alright, alright, alright. So a 2017 American supercar versus a 2007 body-in-white exotic. Ten years and a world of difference in technological advances, techniques and tools ought to make one side a clear winner, right? Maybe not. We'll see. And here are my tests. Both cars are...

    GT Sport Duel of the Week (Inactive)

    I can understand the sentiments completely. That said...I'll poke around with the '17 GT and the CTR3 after work today.

    GT Sport Duel of the Week (Inactive)

    I feel like you can run the time trial as an optional take-it-or-leave-it deal. Run them with the game's built-in track limits, and not as a competitive thing. The objective of this thread is to compare and contrast the cars, not the drivers, right? The TT should really only serve as a means...

    What happened here?

    Count me in. My dad wants in, too. Although his odds of surviving are atrocious - he works retail :lol:

    I might be able to get to them by month's end. My dad and I are working out the logistics of it right now.

    Real Guns

    I completed my gun safety course! :cheers: First step to getting an LTC. Next up, I'm going to apply for the LTC per my state's requirements and take two additional courses - one for defensive shooting/proper use of force and carrying, and one that'll let me get hands on experience with as many...
