Bump again.... Survived a monday at work.... Those are the most hectic.... Looks like I am going to take a defensive pistol class in the fall.... Need to find me a pistol in 9mm or larger..... hmm.... PPS or PPK if I have to buy?

Scratch that.... PPK is .380 just like the pk380....

I've had good experiences shooting a P99, if you want a 9MM.

As far as stopping power... I spent some brass through a Glock 21 .45 ACP at the range, thing felt solid as a rock and no bad guy is getting up after one of those in the chest.

There are people on this board who highly disprove of the Glock, however. And a 21 is surely not a good carry gun. Nightstand gun on the other hand, yes.

Rick. I know... .45 is the way to go. I'm sorry but that's just too big to lug around

Sometimes even the most avid hunter must rest, Sid.
That's a good thing, when the hunter is resting, prey gets comfortable, less alert....

Good point G.... Plus I'm trying to seal the deal with Nikole....


Oh... I admit.... I'm a slut for a good looking watch....




I'm sure that money should have gone towards Porsche parts or a handspoon......

Not really my style of watch.
I'm an Omega kinda guy. (I only have one, I'm not rich at all or I would own several)

I've never, in my life, needed a watch. Dunno. I sit within range of a computer most of the day. Or cellhpone. Or in a car with a clock.

Before cellphones, I didn't care about what time it was anyways.

I've got my phone.... But at work and in class I prefer to not pull my phone out...

My boss doesn't care either.... I have been known to text on occasion at work when it is slow and we are just standing around.... Its still nice to have a watch....

Every man should own a decent watch, IMO.
Like owning a suit, shave with a razor and know how to whistle (loudly)
Not that you would not be a man without these things, just a little less....

Morning, guys.

Since my last watch broke, two years ago, I have not got around to replace it. I have found that I feel less stressed not constantly staring at the time. Besides, there are clocks everywhere anyway.

A nice suit makes a good impression even before you open your mouth.
Never underestimate the power of being well dressed.

True, but once I have opened my mouth, they all love me anyway. Particularly when I am singing!
