    Leaving my company after 13 years.

    I remember you saying that. Last year they offered a "Voluntary Early Retirement Plan" to employees over 55 with at least 15 years of service. It said voluntary enough times to make an age discrimination law suit difficult. Everyone I spoke to said the message seemed more like leave now because you're no longer wanted here. It was a corporate tactic to get rid of people that have been here long enough to make a decent living. Over 70% of them took the offer, which was around 3,000 people. Many of those were our "go to" people and subject matter experts. They've been replaced with entry level people, most overseas. It's pretty much been a shit show. I feel like I'm jumping off a sinking ship.

    Sounds like you are leaving at a good time. I've been at my company 23 years and may be leaving soon. I'm burnt out...I may just take some extended time off.

    AR Pistols?

    Hard to beat PSA prices. 300 BLK is an awesome round. I have a suppressed 8.5” 300 SBR that is my go to gun for almost everything. If you’re wanting a pistol type rifle also look at the Keltec CMR 30. That is my other favorite go to if I don’t grab the 300.
  13. Moved the rear sight using a 5/16" x 3" brass bolt and tweaked it with a sight pusher. Photos don't show it as well, but I can see it. Went maybe a hair too far, but now I know the sight pusher can move it a little. The spring I was about to cut, but I tried a temporary test by wrapping the last coil around itself. Now the 7-round mag seats just about the same as the 8-round mag as it should.

    Are we still playing guess the new bike?

    That space is only because it isn't rented. It's the other half of our shop and once it gets rented it will go back amongst the clutter. Anyone looking for light industrial space to rent we have 5,200 sqft for rent in Grafton, Ohio

    AR Pistols?

    Been thinking of the same thing. It would just be a toy and if it doesn't work well I have the means to make it work so cheap is where I've been headed. ARs are stupid simple so overspending isn't needed unless you want to go match shooting. https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-10-5-5-56-nato-1-7-phosphate-classic-shockwave-pistol-kit-black-5165449130.html https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-ar-15-complete-classic-pistol-lower-no-magazine-black.html

    Weight loss/ lifting/ dieting thread

    I can relate to the knee pain. I have had 3 surgeries on I’m knees. I can’t squat any decent weight anymore. Try deadlifts, they don’t seem to stress the knees so much and are fantastic for the back and legs

    Leaving my company after 13 years.

    I've been at a company where a corporate takeover ran the company promptly in the ground. I got out just over a year ago. I found out a couple weeks ago, all my old coworkers are losing their jobs after Christmas. Sad for them, but I was relieved I got out when I did.

    I think I mentioned my mom worked for your current company. She couldn’t wait to retire. She also says it was soul crushing

    I wish that I had that much room around my bike. My garage isn't super small. I just have too much shit!

    AR Pistols?

    Lately I've been getting the itch to pick up an AR pistol just for giggles. What's the best bank for the buck out there? I've been out of the AR platform game for a while. It used to be stick to ABC (Armalite, Colt, Bushmaster) and you were good. That's probably not the case any more. I've been reading a bunch on AR15.com but most of those guys roll their own. 2nd question. Is 300 blackout worth the extra up front and ammo cost?

    So if we had to make an assumption for the rally dates. What would be the safest weekends to ask off for vacation picks? June 1 and 2 June 8 and 9 June 15 and 16 June 22 and 23 June 29 and 30

    So have we at least figured out what weekend in June we’re not having the rally?

    2019 deals gap dates

    I am not volunteering to organize anything. I usually stay in Robbinsville, NC at Phillips Motel. It's a crappy place in the middle of town but it's cheap. You can walk to a Mexican restaurant, McDonalds and Wendys. It's close to the Cherohala Skyway and 17 miles from the Gap store. Back in the day the Busa Bash used to rent the whole place out. It has a new owner now so the prices have gone up.

    2019 deals gap dates

    That bike's forever home is the track now The Grom is my only street legal bike, which tops out at 61 going downhill. I did this mainly to keep myself out of trouble since the only adrenaline rush I get any more requires rubbing hard parts together at full lean. I'll leave that open to everyone's own interpretation. We were down there on the same weekend as them for 1 or 2 trips. The majority of the people on the minis don't spend much time actually riding, they go dick around in gatlinburg or pigeon forge and keep the cops busy. They schedule a ride to the dragon with like 1,000 minis which I like to sit and watch... because that is for sure a cluster. I'll have been racing the grom for 2 months leading up to the gap so I should be able to scoot through 99% of the people there no problem. There were 1 or 2 fast guys there last time but that was about it. Everyone else was wearing elmo and cookie monster helmet masks and taking selfies of themselves riding like dickheads. If you want clean passes through the gap though, it's probably best not to schedule on top of the hooligan mini crowd's event. Room rates will probably be higher and overall harder to find that weekend as well because of the amount of people.
