        I use it almost exclusively, never had any problems at all with it. If I do y'all will be the first to know. But c'mon! Is that not a pretty good deal? That's almost pre Obama prices there!

        I love the old stuff I had; maybe 25 years old. Old brass is my bolt gun reloads now. The new stuff seems to have less zip. I thought a guy had a bad rifle at the range, no bang in two additional rifles including a bolt gun.

        I've fired about 3000 rounds of it in the last 6 months with no issue whatsoever. And I find it to be more accurate than many other bulk ammos. I've used it to win a few of @dsdmmat's matches.

      I think the handwriting to text feature of my phone would be a lot more useful if my handwriting weren't so shit.

        My handwriting looks like shit on anything electronic. Whenever I sign for something at the store, it always looks like I have cerebral palsy or something.

        The "S Pen" of the note does a pretty remarkable job of feeling like a regular pen on paper.

      Blew up my phone yesterday, somehow. Replaced it with a Note 8 this morning. Is very nice. The pen just may solve may fat finger woes.

        I actually switched to the iPhone X recently. I hated when Apple forced people to use the home button coming from the 6. I will say, the display is really nice on it, and I like it a lot better than the 6 regular I had before this. Got a nice leather case for it and treated it with leather salve / some leather oil to darken it up. Feels really nice now. Think I'll stick with leather from now on for my phones.

        Have a Note 8 myself, had a Note 2 and 4 before this, absolutely love it. I use the pen so much for notes, grocery lists, cutting/pasting/editing pics/memes, etc. The dual rear camera is nice if you know how to take good pics, the manual mode is great. I used mine to take those moon shots.

        You have to pick and choose your battles, and put things in perspective. Is it really worth the anger? Is this just a matter of pride when you can be the bigger man and walk away?

        If you're the one manipulating the situation to a certain outcome, even if you walk away, then YOU'RE the one in control of it.

        Yeah, the family dynamic has really changed since I got thus good paying job and moved away. My Mother does her best to humor me so I will want to come and visit now and again. I've straight up told her that while I do enjoy the occasional visit she and my brother are competing with range time back home. I can only do on or the other, rarely both.
