    Happy PFestivus 2018! I've got a lot of problems with you people!



    In 2014 we began the PF tradition of observing PFestivus.

    The rules were as follows:

    For the next couple of days, this thread is going to be wide open for comment. What does "wide open" mean? It means no personal info, no threats, nothing illegal. If you advertise, post porn, or threaten to kill anyone I'm going to destroy your account...but aside from that if you've got an opinion, let's hear it. If there's something on your chest, now's the time to get it off.

    I'm listening. So are other members of staff.

    I'd only say this: What is said in this thread is going to live in this thread. Forever. It will not be pruned. It will not be trashed.

    Go for it.
    The same rules apply this year. This is your chance to get whatever is bugging you off your chest. Calling people out (including Staff and SMEs) by name is perfectly acceptable, as is calling out other sites or blogs. It must stay in THIS THREAD. Go nuts.

    No one is under any obligation to participate. If you think PFestivus is stupid you can always use the Ignore this Thread feature to completely block this thread. Better yet, you can tell us about it here.

    Last years PFestivus thread can be seen here:



    Remember, remember...the 14th of September....

    First! (Douchebag)

    Hating Sig is not just some fad, theyíve earned their condemnation. I still want an M17 though.

    There should be monetary penalties for haikus and bad puns.

    Damn it. I had an automated process start this thread at precisely 07:00 MST. I was testing it last night in a non-public forum (the place where we make "deleted" posts/threads go) and apparently forgot to change the destination forum to GD. The mods here truly are shit.

    This. I've been sitting here, first watching the countdown like a fleabay auction ending, then refreshing over and over. Finally got distracted and looked at an email from my mom. Now I'm not first like that jerk up there at the front of the line.

    Screw you, mods!

    Well, that's pretty much my only grievance right now or at any time in the recent past, so I should be out for the remainder of the thread.

    I was sitting here looking at this empty thread and wondering where all you angsty MF-ers were. Apparently, you were waiting for me to stop being shitty. It's going to be a long wait.

    Is there an award for the top 10 who post?

    I shot an IDPA last Saturday(it's been 5 years since I shot one). I shot what I carry, and almost how I carry. I carry a Glock 29 with TLR-6 in an appendix holster(yes I know it's 10mm). IDPA doesn't allow appendix so I moved it to 3 o'clock for the match. First stage and I was told no light. Well crap, there goes practicing my grip with the light. I have been dry-firing a few minutes every day to practice my grip with a TLR-6.
    I don't know anyone so I'm hanging around watching, boom, booming when it's my turn and trying to learn from those who shoot IDPA more than once every 5 years. A couple of shooters were talking what they carry daily -- it's not what they are carrying for the IDPA match. Both carry a Glock 43 because it's easier, lighter, and just disappears. I understand IDPA is a game, I could see that from all the OWB holsters floating off hips, but I wanted to shoot what I carry daily, how I dress daily. I may go back and shoot the Bug match but first need to check if my G29 is "Bug" material. I'm thinking of getting a G43 and carry it for my left hand. Get one of those fancy appendix holsters made with a G29 on the right and a G43 on the left. I'm also looking into a USPSA match so I can shoot what I carry daily.

    Hating on SIG is too easy. They earned it! But I donít hate them. I just donít trust them, or their products. And that makes me kinda sad.

    Angst? What angst? I donít angst!

    Stupid mods.

    You know what really chaps my hide these days? I used to be a guy who liked to shoot. Iíd load some ammo, or buy a few boxes, and go shoot. If I was broke, Iíd just shoot .22. You guys got me buying cases of 9mm, and using them up. Now, if I donít have a couple of cases sitting around to chew on, Iím surfing sgammo and PSA and so forth, looking for a deal. My mailman hates you, his chiropractor loves you, my gun budget hates you Ďcause Iím buying bullets and better holsters instead of guns. Oh, and my wife hates you.

    I donít hate you. Iím just irritated. And shooting better. I even got a stupid timer and take it to the range now. But Tom gave me a gift card to buy that with. Just made me more of a shooter nerd, but I canít really complain about that.

    See, I changed did change that, but apparently the thread number changed when I moved it into the correct sub-forum -- which then broke the link.

    I can't wait to see what I screw up next.

    Glad to see I wasnít the only one.

    Then the link said I didnít have permission to view, my first thought was ďOh, site supporter only PFestivus eh?Ē

    Was about to go out to NM and nail my grievances to Tomís door, Martin Luther style.
