"well you are the administrator... I dare you to issue him a warning... Oh that'd be hilarious I soooooo dare you!"
I could give him an infraction but then he would send either his lackeys or his flunkies to break my kneecaps with Lead pipes like he did that one time I borrowed $5.00 off of him and paid it back on Tuesday instead of on Monday like I promised.
My knees still ache like the Dickens every time it rains.
His Ohio boys don't fool around. Not only do they come after you personally....but, they will go through your High School yearbook & administer beatings on anybody in there that ever even looked like you.

1. Sixto's P228 is a 9mm DA/SA with decocker, holding about 15 rounds. It is known for having a good trigger.
2. Sixto is kind of old and stuck in his ways, so I figure he would stick with these basics and try to improve upon them.
3. He might be attracted to a polymer gun for the weight savings, but would not give up the 15 round capacity or the DA/SA trigger system. He would not go with a cheaper gun.
4. So I figure he might be attracted to the H&K P30, which has good ergonomics, lighter weight and a good trigger, with 15 round capacity in 9mm.

Sixto's new toy:
"If you make something idiot proof, someone will make a better idiot."
Actually the P30 was strongly considered, and might of even made me start looking for a replacement, but is not it. The main reason is I like to deal with companies that actually want customers business and doesn't try and rape them over basic parts. That said, I really do like the P30.
