No. I'm going to buy a bunch of brenneke slugs this weekend though. I need to buy so 9mm defense ammo since I'm a dipshit and forgot to swap what I had out of my mags before my little outing at my folks place. Those 20 cost more than the next 120.

The center of the seat was angled up in the center so it was basically buttfcuking you too. My friend who owned it rode it from Buffalo, NY to Windsor, CT and said it wasn't all that bad. It would certainly not be my touring bike of choice.

I briefly considered pulling the trigger on one, until the Chinese acquisition. I come across them now and then on the cheap. But the support infrastructure is so poor that I'd almost be afraid to ride it.

Let me get a review if you don't mind. I enjoy shooting them off from time to time but it's not very much fun with my PA459; it's really light so you really feel the recoil, honestly, I could only shoot 10 than start bitching and switch to 8-9 shot buck.

I'm looking into a Remington 870 in Atacs for slugs because it's big and heavy but then I think it's sort of stupid to get a shotty just for one ammo type.

And I know what your talking about; I've had friends owe me cash but somehow have the cash to go out during the week, buy weed, buy beer, and all that...Then, I'm the asshole for demanding my cash after I see all that shit going down.

Obviously not an honorable or respectable individual... But none of us are riding each others bike's, so we can drop the subject... Seeing as how we're all spread across the country...
Exactly. I mean I'm not pissed or anything (why would I be?), I'm just stating reasons why I'd be VERY hesitant to ride someone else's ride. Especially at the track.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
