  1. If i were choosing between those 3 i would get the steel frame ppq (steel framed striker fired). If i was debating between polymers id get the vp9 or the walther pdp. I think the ppq is being discontinued. I have a ppq q5 match and its a fun gun but it certainly needs talon grips as i found it slippery. The pdp has more aggressive checkering.
  2. Not to dethread but why a glock 19 instead of the full size 17?
  3. How anyone could vote for murphy over just about anyone blows my mind. Ill take incremental changes or democrat light over dictator murphy any day. Dont forget we were the last state to take off our masks, the businesses that were killed from his lockdown (meanwhile he attends blm parades), the old people killed from "following the science" , giving extra money to illegal aliens etc. Voting for murphy is mind blowing, and if you dont vote you should stop complaining about democrats ruining the state further.
  4. Yeah thats exactly what im trying to avoid. I officially accepted the job yesterday and ill be starting on the 18th of july (after recovery). Im excited for the new move. Kitchens aren't exactly the best for your body or mind. Have you reached out to friends or family for possible jobs? I feel its a great time to look since so many people still want to milk unemployment.
  5. During my googling i saw they actually searched from house to house for these guns. Crazy they never even found one of them.
  6. Can someone give me a quick history lesson here as to what happened at the Plainfield machine company? I live in dunellen. Is this during the 1967 plainfield riots? This is way before my time but I had no idea of the history of this area. Just did some more reading. Now it makes so much more sense. I'd always look at some of the houses and wonder how such large and sometimes nicely done houses are so cheap. I never knew the history of why it went downhill.
  7. so that helps with recoil and follow up shots correct? Am i losing sight radius with this route?
  8. That is pretty badass looking. one hell of a nightstand gun too. I love long slide guns though. seems the 45 is smaller. It sounds like a glock 34 with a comp would be the easiest to both get and find holsters for.
  9. nice, so buy gen 3 glock 17 or 34, switch slide, barrel, add sights, and internals and good to go. I think it could be a fun project. ill catch some grief but i kinda like the look of "tacticool" glocks.
  10. This is one of the ones I was looking at as well. Jarvic inc makes barrels. I was thinking about putting a comp on this as well. Any idea if im accurate in saying these slides will fit a regular glock 17 or 34 frame? would you suggest one over the other?
  11. Im debating grabbing a few more permits to potentially try building my own glock 17L. I shot the glock 34 which I loved but I figure the longer the better right! From googling and checking other glock forums it seems as though the best route is to either buy a glock 17 or a glock 34 and then purchase a 17L slide and barrel. Do i need a specific glock 17L frame? It seems the internals are the same? Im curious what type of fitting is generally needed after? Is it as easy as switching them out? Im still very new to pistols so I know more research is needed but I feel like a glock would be a good pistol to learn to "work on" since so many parts are interchangeable. Also threaded pistol barrels are legal correct? This is the latest info i found on that. ii. A semi-automatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following: (1) An ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip; (2) A threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer; (3) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned; (4) Manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded; and/or (5) A semi-automatic version of an automatic firearm;
  12. Wish you would've posted this yesterday! I wanted a lambo too! Seems lots of meme stocks should be running today. Should be interesting at the very least. Good luck !
  13. Any good steady sector stocks or etfs to invest a few 1000? Im up about 6 percent on xlp, might put more in there since its consumer staples. Looking to have some safer slower stocks. We've put off on buying a home for a year or two and i dont need to get rich quick. I'm just looking to not get completely destroyed by inflation.
  14. My fiance has a good sense of humor
  15. So far so good. Surgery took a little longer then expected but no more spasks at the moment. Going to enjoy my little pain cocktails and rest. Figured id wait s day or 2 to ask when i can go to the range lol. Thanks everyone
  16. That's awesome to hear. Ive gotten in trouble a few times for getting up (Surgery is at 11 and they medicated me since ive been here). They actuslly put an alarm on my bed haha. I made a joke saying "im sorry i thought this was america." The nurses here all seem to appreciate my humor which is nice. My fiance also trained one of them at a different hospital so i know im in good hands. Honestly the most painful part for a former fat kid like myself is not eating since 12 last night. Im getting hangry.
  17. Yeah I had a feeling it will. Heading into survey in 5 hours. Wonder how long until I can shoot again!
  18. Jesus, seems yours was your lower spine. Mines up higher. C5, c6, c7. The incision for the surgery happens at my neck. I find that ridiculous by the way. Im not a pot smoker but i dont see it as any worse then alcohol (actually i see it as better). I wonder if that would help with the pain. If i didnt have these muscle relaxers id be a mess since this compression causes constant spasms.
  19. Man thats rough. Im sorry you had to deal with that shit. I cant imagine a morphine pump. Right now they're giving me cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer) and dilaudid? It seems like the surgery im getting is relatively common with good results but theres always that chance. Fingers crossed and i hope you find some comfort with the pain killer. Back pain sucks.
  20. I did some research as did my fiance (nurse) and sister in law (nurse). Hes got a solid resume as far as the procedures go. Apparently is only down fall is hes blunt. As a chef that doesn't phase me haha. Can i ask what type of surgery you had? If it's personal feel free to ignore it.
  21. Update: unfortunately I have a rather crappy set back regarding the situation. After a month of back pain in multiple spots, 3 drs, lots of anti inflamatorys and muscle relaxers, today was the 1st day I was unable to get to work at the restaurant. Seems my body made the call for me. I woke up and could barely move, the pain was bringing me close to vomiting. Turns out i have multiple severely herniated discs that ive been working through and have been set up for emergency surgery wednesday. I was told my spine looks like I was in a horrible car accident, which i can only atribute to 15 years of hockey and 12 years as a chef. The exact surgery is Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. Googling it scares rhe shit out of me to be honest but the dr assures me ill be fine. Theres really no good time for a surgery but in the middle of trying to buy a home and plan a wedding is an extra little slap in the face. Ultimately its life and I'll get through it (at least statistically speaking) haha. Id appreciate any prayers or just good vibes. Thanks .
  22. Is this for every one, or just if you make "more than 400k" or whatever bs hes been saying
  23. Anyone else sick of musk manipulating the cryto markets?
  24. Anyone worried about a large stock market "correction"? Im debating putting most of my money in etfs and index funds to get through the next year or so.
