    Sad part is, no one will notice. Prime Day is so screwed up the site is practically unusable during most of it.

    I let my prime membership expire. Didn't mind when it was $7x, but every year it goes up for benefits not available to me.

    I'll just wait until I need something and pay the 12.99 monthly fee. Do that 5 months out of the year and it's $65. Think I can go every other month without having to order something.

    I have been looking at all the bills I have to pay and everything going on these days in this increasingly illogical country. Many people have these big expectations of retirement and aging. I may be completely wrong, but I don't need or want to travel the world when I get older. Give me enough money to pay the bills, have enough money to buy a used truck every ten years, and some coffee and bowhunting....and that is all I need. Been reading about people needing to save millions to be able to retire. Yeah, that isn't going to happen for this lifetime public servant raising three kids in high costs areas. And I don't expect the government to help me. Older truck, some happy kids and wife, and some opportunities to hunt and fish is all I need. Call me Vanilla, I don't care.

    Sad day. Three officers on our department were shot on a domestic call for service a few years ago, one being killed. One of the surviving officers was severely injured, leaving him disabled. Today he was forced to retire. I guarded him at the hospital the night he was shot. He just slowly retired without any words. Good man.

    I've shot probably over 100k rounds of 9mm in my life, and never seen that in domestic factory new non +P. Scary. Glad you're OK

    It’s high time some of these elected officials got their own hands dirty. If the sight of a pressure washer triggers you, then I had better see you out there with a mop and bucket. Or maybe scrubbing the sidewalk on their hands & knees. They’re probably more comfortable in that position anyways.

    We are living in a modern twilight zone full of strange, illogical, and attention thirsty "victims".

    I was working on some retirement ppwk yesterday and the online site had listed for me to check...male... female...non binary.

    Think it's bad now? Just wait until the youth of today start raising children of their own.

    My goodness, I cannot imagine what will be acceptable and coddled to in 15 years.

    I'll be nearing retirement age at that time, few years left unless they decide I haven't worked long enough, and I'll be happy with a tent and 5 acres secluded from society. If I can't survive my final 1/4 of life on my own, I've already failed.

    Yea usually stay away from aluminum or steel stuff. But picked this up couple weeks ago. Went through first 50 round and just started about 10 into next and this happened. When first started shooting thought it sounded little different. Seemed louder for some reason. Was just doin some drills loading 2 mags with 4 or 6 rounds and shooting then reload and shoot. This was last round in 2nd mag. Went off and felt different, so looked and saw slide wasn't locked back then saw why.

    Only ended up with some powder on shooting hand but nothing else, luckily. Gun doesn't seem too bad but I'm still sending it to Glock to have them look it over and fix it. Blew the extractor off from what I can tell. Only have about 500 rounds or so through it. Tried contacting federal too but no luck yet. Don't really expect them to do much but guess never know.

    What a crap show decide to go boating tonight, my old motor was flooded would not keep running, went home. Pissed said the hell with it I will have the second boat ready to roll in 10 minutes went to a different lake and had a wonderful evening on the water with the fishing boat. My wife really likes the fishing boat, it runs like a watch. and at 50-1 instead of 32-1 cleaner and quieter.

    How about the trend on social media, going to a grocery store licking ice cream, spitting in jugs of ice tea. I would love to catch one doing it.

    Perhaps I could be like a foster parent and dole out the ass beating they were denied by their parent.
