    a couple of years ago, I was the local equivilant of the "budding mall ninja" in your scout troop.
    while I admit I wasn't especialy ninja minded (more of a pirate guy myself) I used to wear full cammo gear, millitary webbing full of survival gear, water and "rations", and carry more knives around than was honestly healthy (while I can see the arguements for carrying multiple knives, one multi-tool, two folders and a sheath knife are overkill at the local scout campsite.) "actionman andrew" "combat collin" and "rambo" where common nicknames.
    but there is a bright side, he may recover, about the point when he realises that girls arn't just slightly strange creatures with longer hair than most boys, and a language and bahaviour all of their own (they are, but that's not the point) but that they are also highly attractive. that's what cured me.

    Unlike a lot of folks here I have ZERO knowledge about firearms, but even I could see how silly some of his comments were. My favorite line is the reply to his Plan A of getting shot. Even as a total neophyte something tells me getting shot is not a good idea. Just a guess.

    He did get one thing right though: "try laughing at the sheep out there who go to the mall unarmed trusting in me to stand guiard over their lives like a God." By the time we actually get to the mall and shopped a little I have slipped into a dangerous condition I call "mall coma" whose single most perilous consequence is my wife spending a little too much at Ann Taylor while I sleep in the clearly designated "man chairs". I could very well be a "sheep" "trusting" "a God" to "stand guiard over my life."

    This was hilarious. Paul Blart would be proud.

    Not totally, it's probably good for weight training.

    "I did a quick tactical reload, grabbed the 870P from the harness on my back, and did some rolls over to the movie theater and back flipped over the concession counter while unloading the 5 rounds of 000 into the skeeball machine."

    Hilarious.. but actually sad if you start thinking about what this guy's life is really like.


    In a way I am a little envious of these types of people with such a strong raison d'etre. If someone manages to take an entry-level profession and keep themselves motivated and enthusiastic about it day after day - good for them.

    I think the kid was actually having a ton of fun with this when he started it. I think he felt that some of the people on gun forums were a little overboard and started messing with them. Then it grew and grew and grew ;D

    OK, so I know I'm probably somewhere near the far side of normal but every time I see a Segway, I want to kick it over, smash it to pieces and burn it, does any one else have that problem?
    For me they come in the same classification as the British Sinclair C5 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinclair_C5 which had a similar effect on me.

    No!

    Police & Security dont REALLY use these things, do they?

    REALLY?? The worlds gone mad!

    Id always thought that the little scooters that airport staff whizz around Palma Airport on were a good idea, but c'mon, Security Guards & Police shouldnt be patrolling on blummin' Segways!

    This is NOT a segway - it's a "low-drag rapid response unit: single user" or LDRRU:SU for short.  We use LDRRU:SU to quickly and silently reach any situation necessary, so long as our batteries are charged.

    It's a common mistake for civilians to make, but as you know, operators such as ourselves are sticklers for nomenclature.
