Welcome to the IHoP v.2

Shock tuning has more of an effect than orientation.  Obviously geometry could but they generally have a similar response from linear unless truly downhill

While we're on guns.  Gavin's new hobby is draining my money quickly.  I've got $800 wrapped up in hardware, and the ammunition fees are never ending.  I didn't realize how much they're actually shooting.  A box or more a round.  I need to buy a trunk full of ammo.

Trap?

I couldn't fathom any reason why it would matter.  One of the guys at Erik's explained the type of linkage the Bronson used, I glazed over as he admitted to not understanding why it worked but that they look like that.  

 

I have no idea what I'm looking at, but I know an engineer can put that shock however they want. Lol

Yep, 6$ a box on shells adds up along with range fees.  Just shoot this month trap league this afternoon.

Why would you want a .45 carry gun?  9mm does the same job, ballistically all pistols suck and with good ammo they all do pretty much the same.  

I'd buy a Glock, CZP10c, SW M&P, or maybe an XD and be done with it.  Whatever their 9mn variety that holds 10-15 in the mag.

Time to learn reloading.

 

I just made a grip of Rod and Gun trap team decals for the R&G club back home

Can't reload shot shells for any cheaper than buying right now.

After buying said 9mm blaster, take same amount of money, spend half on ammo and half on classes.

Not for carrying. Sorry if I made it sound that way.

 

Thank you sir, that's kind of what I was looking for!  Much appreciated.

CZ 97 is always an option.  Then some parts from Cajun Gun Works.

Um, I guess so.  It is a ton of work in addition to the two careers I am under paid on.

Sounds like they wanted the best. That should give you something to do in your free time. :)

Free time?  Haha, soccer coaching has just encroached on SSA work.

Hmmm.  I know I saw a sign.... but I didn't see that.

You're crazy!  Build some sicknick tables and wall rides for me to come kill myself on.  With the slope you're dealing with I'll just buy an XL downhill bike and we can take turns trying to handle it.

 

Have you seen the Seth MTB YouTube show? He makes a great backyard ride park.

Doing it through my neighbors with mine, perhaps even a third.  Won't be in the front, but maybe I'll add a loop as it is a wicked drop and climb.
