On the upside I rented a PX4 and I now love that gun...also the ringing is gone I don't know If there is actually permanent damage but OTOH, YOLO.

Every time you get ringing in your ears from being exposed to loud noises, you've gotten permanent damage, it's just a question of how much that's gone. You wouldn't really notice it either.

 

I want to shoot a FN Five-seven, but there's noone around here that has one. Gun ownership isn't unusual, but pistols are rare.

 

Never shot one but it seems like it would be comfortable since most of the bulk is closer to the hand. I have a bunch of ranges around my area, if I ever get the chance to shoot one I will tell you.

Arsenal lost badly today so am spending the day abusing their fans. Sports fans are precious when they take their entertainment so seriously.

Went to the range, apparently I didn't quite put the ear protection right so now my left eardrum is ringing a little bit.

 

You've managed to permanently damage your hearing a bit.

 

Sorry for your loss. :(

Great choice!

 

I love my PX4

 

 

I'm not likely but still possibly going on a trip all around Alaska next month to go do some technical mumbo jumbo at some really remote sites. I've never been further north (in North America) than Seattle but to be honest I'm both a little excited and a little scared to go so far beyond the wall.

 

Where in Alaska? It is a beautiful place. Expensive though.

 

All over. It's like Gromnir said I'd be taking little planes all over the place. It'd be a work trip so the expense would hopefully be covered

As someone who has travelled extensively I was going to say "  I can understand that sense of anxiety you may feel but you went to Iraq and survived that and that would require much more bravery and sangfroid   " 

 

But then it occurred to me this trip to Alaska and any nervousness needs  a different type of mental fortitude, also you are older now and married and logically different things would concern you that did not apply when you were in the marines

 

And since a trip to Alaska would also make me scared, as Im not a very good outdoor person,  I cannot offer you any normal constructive feedback  :geek:

I saw the coverage from around Houston this morning. Yikes! My thoughts go out to all our southern Texas forumites and their families. I hope you folks are safe and somewhere dry with electricity right now.

An auspicious start to my day. While waiting for my Uber to a steakhouse for lunch a Douglas C-47 in full Second World War livery flew directly over my head (sans paratroopers making static line drops). Probably on its way back from a heritage flight commemorating the centennial of the foundation of the 82nd.

That could be the problem, assuming nobody stocked up on the sauce.

I once flew on a two engine Cessna from Virginia to Florida, and it was freaking terrifying.

From the rain yes, from my whiskey no.

I actually like the little puddle jumpers. Makes me feel like I'm on an adventure or something

Good, keep applying whiskey until you start ranting at the clouds, then apply some more.
