Maybe I should toss my smartphone and go hang out with Khris.
Maybe all comments aren't directed towards you? Food for thought.

Lol Khris and I have argued endlessly this same topic. He about guns, me about the truck. Weve all also argued about spending money on sxpensive dinners, prices of vehicles, etc. Different people spend money on different things. Different people pay for what they consider quality in different areas. That's what makes us 'people', not 'a person' we are different.

When I say 'argue' I mean converse and go back and forth, not like telling or getting butthurt. I LOVE arguing, I will argue almost any point I believe in, and play devils advocate, all for the sale of a good conversation, and that's what I take it as, conversation. Lol, I don't care or get my e feelings hurt by what goes on in here.

If you or Khris has said something like 'only an idiot would spend 800 on a tent!!!' Or something, that's a different situation, that's just being insulting and not simply stating a difference in opinion and having a conversation about it.

I don't think anybody is hurt, we are all grown *** men in here haha. Khris and you said 'wow that seems expensive, what makes it worth that much' and everybody else chimed in with 'here are my reasons'

That's conversation, thats discussion, lol.

I guess I just don't know what I'm missing cause I've never had a complaint about my cheap tent that I've literally had since high school. Well that is a lie, there's a couple tiny burn holes from fire ash over the years but that's it... Maybe the quality was better back then or something cause I honestly can't say I've shopped for tents in 15+ years. Then again I'm the person that 99% of the time doesn't even setup my tent these days. I just toss my cot out on the ground and climb in my sleeping bag as long as the skies are clear.

Maybe it's like my shocks, if I'd never ridden in a truck with good shocks I wouldn't know the difference but one day I did and then I realized the difference. Andy got to do that last week, I think he's sold. So maybe I need to borrow Terry's trailer for a night and see what I'm missing over my cheap tent?

LOL, the problem is so far, the only thing I've seen adventagous to my cheapo tent is the critter thing which I actually first thought before it was posted but then again I've never had a critter run in in my entire life. I guess it only takes once but so far I've been good. Like on the expensive shocks, come take a ride, you'll feel why they're expensive. That's what I'm asking... I just don't see how that $800 tent is any better then a $100 tent. I've never broke a pole, I've never had issues. Tents aren't exactly big space consumers, etc... I'd think getting your cooler or tote pan with supplies up on the roof would be a bigger space saver then a tent wouldn't it?

Actually, the more I think about it, space saving... I toss my tent on a shelf in a closet. Terry's trailer won't fit there and Merrick's jeep won't fit in a garage now so now you've gotta store that tent somewhere too.

Yep, I'm sold... Sticking with my cheapo tent. (funny part is I can't even remember the last time I used it. Camping I typically sleep in my small enclosed if it's there or just on my cot out in the open.)

BTW, when I go camping I don't bring much, you guys talk about space issues with your jeeps, try a truck with no bed... Don't accuse me of being the jerk that shows up without fire wood to chip in!!! And also, along with camping gear I've got riding gear stuffed in there too. LOL

Ahhh good point. I kinda overlooked that since it seemed as I was getting quoted in responses; in retrospect those comments coulda went either way.

I still agree with everyone here though, that's an awesome tent, Khris has an awesome truck, and you have some awesome guns & if I ever have lots of time and money I would love all of the above + space to store 'em :-)

I am honestly shocked Khris hasn't brought up sleeping in the back of the 'sploder yet

For the record, I have owned 2 tents in my life; never paid for one(both were gifts) & never had any issue with any of them & both were well under $100

I'm just not a ***** and don't use a tent. Way cheaper then any other solution. Then again I don't usually camp for more then a few days and in good weather.

I've been in a few situations within the past few days where it woulda been nice to have my cc with me, but I never had cc in mind when I purchased either of my handguns so subsequently I don't carry because both are just too large to conceal comfortably and I'm not interested in oc.

I've been liking the idea of a pocket sized piece in a .45 ACP. Is that combination possible with any decent accuracy/comfort? If so, can anyone make a few recommendations?

I like any tent as long as it blocks some wind and keeps me covered. There I think that was easy enough

And id love to get a RTT I just gotta get a house first to store it in. Id love to see one of you guys' RTT's one day.

There is the new xds 45 which looks promising and people seem to love them they are 5+1. Or get a shield, both of which are small to carry.

The Colt New Agent w/ CT grips looks NICE. Expensive too..


Anyone actually fire something as small as these guns (XDs, Shield, Colt, etc.) in a .45? Is it comfortable/accurate?


BTW, I picked up a large Voyager Cold Steel knife from woot.com the other day for $20, looks wicked and will go nicely in my LJ glovebox.

I used to have a shield in 9mm and I hated how it shot it was just too small for me. My groups were not very good.

Ask marn which I was better at, the G19 or my shield.
