I ain't buyin you don't shape shift either.

By Blood I was gifted a totem, but it doesn't seem to fit me, but thar's nuthin I can do about it.

Now I can't say I understand it all, I just accept it. Then I end up knowing some pretty odd things about people I never met. It happens.

Got it. I really don't, but there are several people who're still scratchin' their heads and wondering "Where the H*ll did he go?" or "Where de f**k did HE come from?" Its not that I'm so great, its just that they really weren't paying attention, ya know???

I understand what you're saying, and completely agree. There's a lot of things I shouldn't know, but I just do.

Twice in all white I have been invisable to modern man at night. When I spoke up, these folks jumped out of their own skins, and I wasn't being sneaky a bit

One of these was in white elk armor at a SCA events. It ended as i was the best dressed barbarian LOL. I did that type of event just once by invite.

The other was at work in a camp ground, real modern people, where I was just wandering around making sure everyone was alright. If I didn't side step they would have crashed into me, in the middle of a camp ground dirt road.

Mac,

Does the phrase "walk into an empty room and blend right in" sound at all familiar to you?

Default What kind of firearm do

There is no substitute for correct use of sights...... non. At that distance the dot is jumping all over the paper even bench rested. USE YOUR SIGHTS. IMO Meprolite are the best night sights you can buy.
You and I can agree to disagree. I think Meprolite sites are a waste of money. Yes you are certainly correct, the red dot does jump around on the paper. What that means is your sights are also jumping around the same way. You just don't notice it unless you are using a scope or laser sites. Remember, the sights, like the laser grips are fastened to your firearm. The reason you see the red laser dot moving around is because your gun is moving around and the laser (just like a scope) magnifiys that movement. It is possible to hold that red dot still, not easy, but possible. It is also possible to hold your sights still, but even when you do, you don't always hit the target where you expect because the 'site picture' is not the only thing that affects where your bullet hits the target. The down side of using Crimson Trace laser sights is their cost. Meprolite, or so called 'night sites' are much less expensive. I think anyone who intends to use a handgun should buy both and make up their own mind which works best for themselves. When you can competely shoot the center out of an inch and a quarter bullseye at 25 yards, that is good enough accuracy for me. Possibly you can not do that, but it's not the fault of the laser sight if you can't. Remember, that sight just like your other sights are firmly attached to the gun. Once sighted in, the gun will hit where it is pointed, but only if you do your part.

20 yards with a SIG P-229 .40 S&W offhand rapid fire, 36 rounds timed with 2 magazine changes. The sights are standard factory SIGLITE night sites. It's not the shooter! That is a Dirty Bird shoot and see from Meijers. The whole paper is 8"X 8". That is a rapid fire 1 1/2" group at 20 yards. I have 5 witnesses who said it was me too. GD Axle, you sure can shoot! LOL

You flip the selector switch with your thumb and it goes pump action. I've only seen three for sale in the last 5 years. My buddy and I both wanted one for many years and finally were able to get two of them. This configuration with the pistol grip is the most desirable and rare. Yes, you can own a semi and a pump shotgun all in one platform. Everyone at the station thinks this SOB F"n Rocks! LOL
Hoopty doo, looks just like my Nova.

Ah-ah.... I know what you are thinking. That's too easy, right? I headed to the range and out for some fish with the buds tonight to get a little range time in. 20 yards again with a S&W 642 .38 SPL. It's a 1 7/8" barrel snub-nose J-Frame .38 SPL. What do you expect out of one? Don't count the HANGING hole dead center in the top. These guys want to join CD so bad, so they can play too! LOL I told them one of us is enough! LOL

Your Nova is not rare. I challenge you to find one of these. You won't!
