Most .22 LR pistols aside from say a Ruger really need high-velocity ammo to feed well. So Minimags and anything else explicitly marked as high velocity should be what you feed your P22. .22s in general aren't horribly reliable, though~

The Ruger SR1911s are not bad for their price tag. 1911s in general are expensive, though. You might want to check out the CZ-75. 1911-like ergonomics but extremely sweet shooting and generally pretty affordable.

Just got done editing the first page of the OOC again. We now have an Active Members list and a Inactive Members list.

Thanks for the suggestion Maelyn :)

Awesome, thanks for the info. I unfortunately cannot clean my own gun. That spring is too strong for me, I can't grasp it. While I was at the shop learning about my gun, I made an attempt several times to put it together and several times that hammer escaped my fingers and flew across the room. I managed to hit a couple of other customers. I'm an amazing shot ;) they let me get away with it being the only girl in there at the time. It was pretty funny. I was told to just go back into the shop when it's time to clean it. Way to make me feel special and terribly weak at the same time.

I've finished Smith's official profile.

Straight blowback guns tend to have tough recoil springs. Small guns, too. When you combine the two, its understandable the P22 can have a very tough spring.

I apologize for the long-winded post everyone. I swear I didn't mean to go so long. I even cut some of it out to be included in the next post. I hope it's a good read, at least. There's probably typos, so please forgive those. I made a lot of edits and there's bound to be bits where I changed sentences around and left fragments behind and stuff like that.

T'was an excellent post. Though I note the URL for Galilean rifle is missing the first bracket, and there's a line where it says sidearmassault rifle or something.

Thank you, sir. I have corrected the broken link and the "sidearmsault" hybrid word.

I have to agree, but I'm slightly distracted wondering if your Santa can come to my house this year...*grins*

Thanks for the compliments. Means a lot, especially since I've been taking a break from writing since around mid September.

Well, to answer your question... yes, although what you get for Christmas depends on whether you've been a good girl or a naughty girl. Either way, I think you'll approve of the stocking stuffer.  >:) ;D

My end of the world humor ;)

When mankind's last hope for survival is only one and a half feet tall, we know it's the end of our world.

I haven't done Chibi in forever. Gladiator actually inspired me to do it. I love how Hunter is just sitting there with his hands in his lap all happy and Patric is like oh hail no, if I'm unhappy, you need to be too.

Course all these mini spartans are basic gear cuz that's the easiest on me. Oh and O'brain with all the females that just cracks me up too.  "oh yupe, dib dib. Score, these are mine now."

I only did the spartans cuz halo presents them as the saviors and well I had to add my own characters in the mix cuz my art. I hope it doesn't offend anyone or make anyone feel left out :/ it was just a pic to be silly and convinent with the end of the world hype.

The one jumping at Shana is Gladiator, lol. The ones being held by Jacobs are Addy, Lola, and Valkyrie, and the ones over in the corner having a discussion by themselves are Hunter and Patric, lol. She sent me this pic over the phone and I loved it xD

It's even better now that it's on a bigger screen, lmao. Great job Ashia :D

Makes me wanna draw something having to do with the thread. Any requests?

Oh no that poor sap is O'Brian. Jacobs wouldn't be so disrespectful and just swoop up a spartan. He'd scratch his head like Shana.

Been real busy..I hate winter..despise snow with a burning passion. Snow + mustang - people I can count on + 3am work shifts = f'd every time. Weather, work, and people..I'll post when I can.

No, it most certainly hasn't! I am HATING 2013. Bad luck after bad luck after bad freaking luck...I just want my house back T-T Stupid flood..stupid busted pipe..stupid freaking landlord and most of all stupid asbestos! All I aimed for this year was fixing my car..now I got this to worry about? How dare they tell me I won't be able to live there soon! If I come back to something missing in my house, there will be an apocolypse and it WILL start with me.
