  • Biography
    I was born in Germany, grew up in Texas, live in North Dakota. Really isn't a whole life story, just a basic history... think of it as the CliffsNotes.

    I have my desktop support certification through the University of Phoenix, and I flunked out of MSU and somehow ended up in law enforcement. I think I enjoy it too.

    What are secrets of your job?

    I work in law enforcement. Our location tracking is not like CSI. You don't call and .0023 seconds later I have your exact location. There can be a major uncertainty, it does not give me an address, it gives me coordinates. On top of that, not all phones will plot, some will stay on the cell tower. Also, we can't just "track a phone." Also when you call, even if it does get a super close or even exact location... it doesn't give us your name and address, there's a reason we ask.

    Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

    It’s a youth model, but I’m still able to get a proper cheek weld so I’m not too worried (plus I could probably find a replacement stock online if need be). I’ll just grab a cheap box of target loads to test fire it. It has a 3” chamber. But yeah, everything cycles perfectly. Pump, hammer, firing pin, bolt rotates, safety, shell lift.

    Thanks! I'm glad I picked it up! It has a 3" chamber. I'll probably just pick up some cheap 2 3/4" target loads to test it out.

    So bought this at a yard sale from someone I used to work with. Came with a plastic bag full of parts and he said all the parts are in there and it should still work. So I took a gamble Here it all cleaned up and reassembled. Fully functional 20 gauge Winchester 1300 for $25. I’m glad I took the gamble.

    Why US college and university are so expensive?

    As someone mentioned earlier. Government subsidized student loans. That's why college is so expensive. It's unfortunate though. When federal student loans were brought it, colleges across the country saw it as guaranteed money regardless. Sure it helped a lot of people get into college, but the universities saw more money. The only way to cap it at this point is to set a profit cap IMO, on the colleges. No, I don't think advanced education should be free, but it shouldn't be the astronomical high rates it is.

    Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

    Like I know everyone knows about the YC9 at this point, but tbh, it's the first time since my C308 (which the G3 was my dream gun growing up, so I'm not counting it) that I've genuinely been hyped for a new gun this much. I want a Hi Point YC9 so bad. I already don't mind Hi Points (hell, I own a carbine and I learned how to shoot pistols on a CF380). But this one looks pretty good as far as Hi Points are concerned. Iirc, I remember Hi Point said they'll do a limited run of the new pistol where it's engraved with "Yeet Cannon 9" as opposed to just "YC9". That's the model I want. I know the slide is still Zamak 3, but if Hi Point can still reduce overall weight with the redesign.. I might daily carry it. (Assuming it holds the same reliability I've had with every other Hi Point I've fired) But they're aiming for the same $200 MSRP (which means it'll probably sell under that). You used to already got a reliable pistol for $150 to $200 depending on where you bought it at. Hi Point really only had to worry about Jimenez Arms, and maybe SCCY if you want to push the price up to $250ish. But really, Jimenez? If all you had was $200, couldn't save up any more, you needed a gun and some ammo to defend yourself. The C9 or CF380 were perfect. Now for the same MSRP, you're getting what a lot of people consider higher end features. Double stack mag (not really a high end feature, but I'm glad it's here) Option to mount optics. Yeah, you can put a red dot on your Hi Point. Not just a thumb safety, but a grip safety also. (As seen on the M&P EZ) Interchangeable backstrap threaded barrel Picatinny rail for laser/light mounting. I'm a big fan of budget stuff. These features, (again, assuming they hit their target MSRP and even if eventually, sell under that like current Hi Points) gives a lot of people room to get into the shooting culture. Even if just shooting as a hobby/sport. Like, yeah, laser and lights can get expensive, same with optics for pistols. Even suppressors. But starting off with a cheaper gun makes those extra features a pill that is a lot easier to swallow.

    Tech job - what do you do for living?

    I love to fuck with computers, I love working on hardware. I got a desktop support certification through University of Phoenix, and went to MSU for an IT degree, naturally. So obviously this all means that my career ended up being law enforcement.

    Show off your latest purchase!

    I like stickers, got a couple stickers. Here's some new Splatoon shirts, that fit me right, now. Look, I don't have an issue. I'm not obsessed with Splatoon.

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Working on upgrading my mom's PC. 16GB of DDR4 for less than $40, fuck yeah! (kinda wish I had this kinda deal when upgrading my PC, lmao) I need more shirts that fit me, all my old shirts are too big. So ordered a few since Teepublic was having a sale. I got some more that I'll upload soon. I finally got the artbook for the first game. It's pretty cool, even has some actual lore for the game series in it. Got more amiibos, since I'm collecting the amiibos for Splatoon. Needed a Switch case, this was only $11 at GameStop.

    Daily Driver of everyone

    My PC is in my description, so is my laptop, for when I need my laptop. Realistically, I carry my iPhone XS Max and iPad 6th Gen with Apple Pencil. Other devices include my Fitbit Versa Lite, and if I'm not working at the sheriff's department that day, I'm carrying a FEG PA-63.

    "It has an easy to operate slide" That's literally the reasoning. But by god does it feel good in the hand, and it's trigger isn't trash. It's not much bigger, if at all, than my current carry piece also. I'd just like something that wouldn't make me bleed also.

    I normally hate gold on guns. (I surprisingly like it on my phones and tablet). But I normally don't care for gold on guns. We got one of these in the gun store, and I'm really liking how it looks, and I don't know why. But in person, I'm really liking how it looks. Been thinking of picking up an M&P .380 EZ anyways.

    The most expensive thing you bought this year?

    I finally paid off my truck this year, so if you wanna call that my biggest payment. (But I've been making payments for a couple years). Otherwise, the biggest purchase this year would maybe be my PC or my phone. Granted my phone is on the AT&T Next plan, so obviously not paying it all out of pocket at once.

    IRL gender vs Gender in games?

    Kinda off topic, but I've had this issue myself. I'm male and I've been in a couple servers where people thought I was a chick. I told them several different times over the course of a couple weeks I wasn't. I decided to finally say screw it when people weren't listening and played a chick for about three months till people finally either caught on, or believed me on it.
