A h00ker.

Just kidding, I wanna get a halo reach xbox for christmas.
That comment was bait and switch.
Wait what?
You can't rap without knowing what words mean....wait
I know what Bait and switch is but why do you say it's a bait and switch?
k, you said a h00ker, now hopefully you are referencing fishing tackle supplies that you want. If not, then underage truants would be called 'bait. You switched your answer by substituting your choice of what you want for Christmas. Sucker the reader in to read your comment only to be disappointed with what you really wan to say. Same as in real life marketing, "bait and switch", i.e.( for example) your halo game is free but you have to buy the online subscription in order to play it, something like that. Geeez, you guys need to up the reading comprehension in school.
That was a joke... And the halo game isn't free, it's like $400 when bundled with a new Xbox 360.
I really don't care....
. Yes, you do.
unless he is Jimmy DJ Corn.
Nice one.
. <snicker>
Isn't this where someone goes "Who's on first"?
Who's on first?
What's on second.
MegaMetal8 (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
Stay classy.
Myself, a scout scope mount, and scope, for my Mosin Nagant, my wife some woodworking projects she wanted.

What sh'e getting me or herself, I dunno.
MegaMetal8 (author)  Tool Using Animal5 years ago
And it looks sick, can't wait til I have some range time.

Is it an air rifle?
No, it's a Mosin Nagant, a Russian bolt action rifle from WWII. (The bolt was removed while I worked on it.)

During the war the Russian manufactured over 20 million. Because of this, they are extremely common and can be found online and at gun stores for between $75 and $150. And the fact you can find ammo for 20 cents a round makes them one of the least expensive large caliber rifles to own and shoot.

I didn't know you were a fan too. Have you shot it yet? Here is the most horrifying version I've seen yet: the Obrez.
Reminds me of a sawn-off shotgun.
How can anyone not be a fan? ;-)

Just got back from the range, boy is my shoulder sore. Was a great day mid 60's, no one on the 100 yard range but me, and the range officer was more interested in playing with his golf cart than bothering me.

Scope was rock solid.
When I first got mine I went out and put 30 rounds through it right away. Ouch. I've decided to keep the open sights, unless I can find some apertures I like (I have a biathalon background), but I am working on a laminated birch thumb-through (since I'm 6' 5" the stock stock is a bit short).

Oh, I got a 10/22 carbine for X-mas, courtesy of my wife!

And- Did you look at the Obrez? Did you already know about them? Heinous! Notice that in the vid, the shooter isn't putting his thumb around the back of the grip.
I'd seen a picture before, but thought it was a photoshop, that's a nasty piece of work.

Your wife is a wonderful woman ;-) My mosin was a gift from mine a couple of years ago. I'm 6'6" myself and yeah those russian soldiers must have been short fellows. Post pix of the thumbhole stock when you finish it.

I keep planning to pick up another mosin for an "art" project rifle.

BTW, my wife bought herself a Kindle. Coolest toy ever, I'm reading my brains out.

MegaMetal8 (author)  BrittLiv5 years ago

My father owns a hardware store, for Christmas I went there with my mum and was allowed to get whatever I wanted.
I wish my dad owned a hardware store, I've really been itching for a table saw lately. Some air tools would be nice, too.

My list?
A few video games
IPod touch External Mic
Xbox 360 controllers
Cheap laser pointers
Flash drive
I'm probably going to add Duct Tape and Electric Tape onto my list.

I'd ask for more rubber bands, but I have about 3/4 of a pound of 64s and a 1/2 pound of 33s, and I don't use them that often.

crapflinger5 years ago
me and the wife agreed to pay for some doggie adoptions at the animal shelter instead of getting big presents.....so, self satisfaction and warm fuzzies?
MegaMetal8 (author)  crapflinger5 years ago
Goodhart5 years ago
I already sent for it.....three books of inspiration.
MegaMetal8 (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
They're on their way ! :-)
MegaMetal8 (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
I am kind of excited to get started on some of the ideas....not that I don't get them (ideas) from here; but I have difficulties with "inspiration" when I don't know what to look for, to inspire me, so the search engine really doesn't help me much.
MegaMetal8 (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
I wish there was a "Book of inspiration" for knex.

Everyone is bored of nothing exciting coming out. (Apart from selez's new gun, XD)
I have something in the works, not really anything to get excited about unless I can clean it up a bit (it's looking a bit crude at the moment). And fairly simple yet very "hackable" and easily improved on.
PS: ANY book can give me inspiration, but mostly books on odd, weird, science discoveries, or on building something that sparks my "hey I can do that, only differently/better" neurons :-)
