What in the world!! Will you just congratulate this guy on advancing themself with this opportunity to drive around tons of money in an armored vehicle? Maybe my bank will give me coins again soon.


He wouldn't deny it so now I'm convinced he's a hired assassin.


Assassin work is more of a side gig.

Oooo, oooo, is your new day job 'hired assassin'?


If so, he should be fired. Not a single hole in the "head."

Even I watched Collateral, geez.


I prefer the good ol piano wire. It's a classic.

What microaggressions? Lol

It was a G22. .40 caliber. Solid.

I usually knock Glocks, as I'm not a big fan of the trigger safety, and I'm not a big polycarbonate frame fan or striker fired fan either, but it was a nice gun to shoot.

The trigger is okay. I like the Walther PPQ trigger more though, and if I wanted a personal .40 polycarbonate striker fired pistol I'd probably go with the VP40.

I got a chance to break it down, and I'm not a big fan of how the G22 breaks down.

You have to dry fire it, and then pull the slide back a bit like a 1911 or CZ, and then pull two tiny breakdown tabs down. Whereas with my PPQs all you need to do is dry fire and then pull down the breakdown bar which is larger and more easily manipulated.

The Baretta that I carry is even easier. No dry fire needed. Just press the breakdown button on the right side, and then push the breakdown switch on the left side down, and the slide comes right off.

And both my PPQs and M9A3 come across as a smoother and more accurate shooting experience.

Granted I've only shot a G22 once now, and I wasn't even trying. I think I may take one out and take my time with it to see how I do.

Congrats on the new day job! So...well-armed swashbuckling pirate on the high seas then? : )~

Here's my target.



The round that I totally messed up on is down in its right arm.


No way in hell would I call you a bad shot or anything based on this -- I'd run like hell, albeit briefly & very likely futilely.

I wouldn't call him a bad shot either.
I am just picky on the groupings.

Good point, there's one poster on this site that would only laugh if you shot him in the belly 12 times.

I don't care much for merc work, but I am a sailor at heart. I'd enjoy pirate hunting again though.

I'm a huge freedom loving kind of guy, but when you make a living off of plundering you kind of open yourself up to repercussions. When a person decides to live a life of crime they have to come to terms with the fact that they'll be hunted down at some point.

And I doubt you'd have any reason to worry about me. There's a reason I chose to turn down working for the feddies or the state. I'm more of a hired gun. I'd rather be hired by and work for private individuals than be on a government payroll. That and I don't shoot people who run away.

Though I have come across many "patriots" who have stated they would shoot a teammate who decided to run away from a fight.

Hmmmm. Idk. I don't really see myself as a good guy or a bad guy.

I just do my best to live my life according to my values and morals, and try to be there for the people who I care about.

I'm aware there are people who appreciate what I do, and people who think I'm a terrible person for the way I go about making money. But the fact is that I'm good at what I do, and I enjoy it for the most part.
