    To me - a P99 doesn't look right unless it is two tone - blame it on Underworld (the movie)

    You know, instead of blowing money on all these pointless accessories and customizing, you'll be a much better shooter if you invest all that cash in good training and cases of practice ammo. I know, your buddies can't look at you and see that you've been to Gunsite or Thunder Ranch, but they can see a carbon fiber slide and a suppressor and reflex sights and know what a cool warrior you are. I guess with the training only you would know how cool you are, and that's evidently not enough. Maybe you could get a Gunsite t-shirt while you're there.

    It's very ironic that you condemn your friends for wanting Glocks because they'll shoot underwater. You want stuff for equally pointless reasons.

    Do I have to wear the Gunsite teeshirt to make me shoot better or can I just hang it in the closet?

    Mike you need to chill, bud. Carbon wrapping my slide would cost MAYBE $10. I do not have a reflex sight...I do not have a suppressor. I have considered a suppressor, but I've pretty much ruled it out due to the fact that I probably could not get a signature where I live. And as I've stated before, I ruled out the reflex sight as well.

    As far as the practice ammo, I shoot at least once a week with both handgns, putting 200-300 through the .22 and 100+ through the .40.

    And on a second note, the carbon wrap would be for ME. You don't go showing off your carry weapon while you're out. It would serve no functional value, but be an extremely cheap cosmetic mod, and would be cheaper than hardchroming the slide.

    So next time you go jumping my sh*t, think about how much .40S&W ammo $10 would buy. It would buy 50 rounds max, which in the long run, don't really make a huge impact being that I shoot at least 100 rounds per week (which is about all I have time for).

    And as for the Glock deal, I didn't choose the right handgun for myself based on the fact that I could get a suppressor, reflex sights, or carbon wrap the f**kin' slide. You can do that with about any handgun. I chose it because it fit my hand perfectly, was of good quality, and fit the rest of my expectations.

    Personally I find it ironic that you would find no problem with someone hardchroming their slide, yet flip your sh*t on someone that wants to [more cheaply] carbon wrap the slide for wasting their money on what you label as pointless customization.

    No, accessorizing my gun won't make me a better shooter. I think we all know that. But it's not taking away from my becoming a better shooter, so honestly I don't know what your problem is.

    Easy with the language. You have already offended a bunch of people on this forum, and now you're offending me.

    My "problem" is that practically every time you interject on a thread, it is to talk about some mall ninja gun or modification you are considering. Suppressors for shooting mice and squirrels, .50 Desert Eagles for home defense, ARs and pistol grip shotguns for hunting, goofy and potentially dangerous tattoos, etc., etc., etc. The gun world is more than paramilitary or gangsta stuff that makes you look cool in front of your buddies.

    I'm going to have to read a few more of this lad's posts, sounds entertaining.

    FHF, I must confess, your avatar takes away from your credibility.

    Let's see...suppressor...that's out. .50AE is better than any handgun out there for home defense, but I'm still going with the 12-gauge. AR is out, and pistol grip shotgun for hunting is out. Potentially dangerous tattoos? Last time I checked a tattoo isn't dangerous. And watch your mouth about calling it goofy. You wouldn't know the first thing about tattoos and why people get them, or why I have the tattoos that I have. If you wanna offend someone go making fun of their tattoos. All of my tattoos are essentially scars...everyone goes through their own personal battles, and yes, they all leave nasty scars on the inside. Tattoos that represent them are my way of pulling them to the surface so I no longer feel pain from the past. So that being said, making fun of my tattoos is being a mean person (edited for content as to not offend anyone). Enough on that.

    "The gun world is more than paramilitary or gangsta stuff that makes you look cool in front of your buddies." You forgot the part about the gun world being accepting of someone who chooses certain guns that fit their wants and needs, unless that doesn't exist. Who cares if I prefer a pistol grip on a shotgun? If that's what I feel more comfortable with, than that's what I'll shoot better with. No, I'd rather have a standard grip on a shotgun after discussing it with you through our PMs, but that's not the point. Apparently my point of making a gun more fun to shoot didn't get through to you. I never said that a suppressor would make me a better hunter, or a reflex sight would make me a better shooter, or a carbon wrapped slide would increase my cool status. I couldn't care less what my "buddies" think. You think I modded up a grocery-getter (Volvo) to impress people? Come on man, think about it. I do things for ME, and for me alone. And anything I do to a gun that you consider mall ninja isn't to impress anyone. A reflex sight on a handgun looks ridiculous. Someone sneaking through the woods after a deer with an AR-15 looks ridiculous. What I do is not to impress anyone, it's simply to make the gun more enjoyable for ME.

    But to go back to your argument, your mall ninja attack doesn't hold up. Not getting a suppressor...sold the reflex sight and weaver rail for my P22...decided an AR for hunting was silly (with some help from you)...decided a standard grip shotgun made way more sense than a pistol grip (with some help from you). And if it comes down to being a better marksman, I'm practicing all that I'm gonna practice, regardless of what other money I spend. Sure, I had some interest in that stuff previously, but I've learned better, and I'm still learning.

    And carbon fiber is not paramilitary nor is it gansta. Camo is paramilitary and chrome is gansta. CF is neither of those, just a look that I love on about anything. And yes, a slide [properly] carbon wrapped and clear coated would be sexy. Even you couldn't say otherwise.

    Look Mike, I've got nothing against you, but I think you have the wrong intentions pinned on me. I do things for certain reasons, and I'm sure a lot of others do the same things for different reasons than myself. I'm trying to get you off my back simply because I think you're on my back for the wrong reasons.

    This thread has gone completely off track. Closed.

    And, FiveHourFrenzy, please spare me the crybaby garbage about tattoos and "scars on the inside." I know real men with real scars they got in real battles, and they eat silly mall ninjas for breakfast.
