Cross thread?
Ha, I try very hard not to post anything gun or gear related on Facebook. Can't be too careful these days.

I had "Sheepdog" next to my avatar for like three months without anybody commenting on it. Really took the fun out of it.

I pursue several gun magazines each month and all of them seem to be just filled with ads disguised as reviews! Just once I want to see a gun test article that says " This weapon is a wortless pos and can't hit a barn door from the inside"!☺

I have got lucky not to get a lemon yet. I did argue with my editor over repoting a few malfunctions during a review. I told him I took the time to add in the importance of using different ammo, break-in etc. I won that one.
