    My wife is a junior high history teacher, and says she gets things written in text fairly often. She also gives a zero score on the second "offense".

    9mm vs. .45 ACP

    Should I carry with one in the chamber?

    Is a 1911 okay for concealed carry?

    Three recent ones that stick out.

    The worst one for me is the ten billion line post with no paragraph breaks. My degree is in journalism, and it's rare for a news story to have a paragraph more than three sentences long, and many are only one sentence.

    Applying that rule to posting would ease a lot of tired eyes.

    I had to read out loud to get it. Sorry for all my poor spelling and lack of proof reading. I always butcher their with thier. Have a hard time proof reading my own writing.

    How can you say that a thread that generated over 2,000 posts in less than a week was a faux pas?

    I got the message real quick about how people carried and why, and I learned a TON. And other viewers must have been thouroughly entertained watching a road wreck in progress.

    So, entertainment, education, that's a winner!

    Seriously though, I am an old timer on some other forums, and there are the same questions over and over there too. (how do I get my cookies to brown better on the bottom, what cookware is the best, what size dutch oven do I need, etc etc). I am surprised and pleased how civil things are here, and how many nice people are willing to give so much info to new people.

    I am not very proficient with the search function here yet, but will certainly give that more effort to avoid reposting the obvious or unwanted.



    and p.s. you guys are much better shooters than spellers. My cake baking ladies would kick your butts in a spelling bee but you would get payback on the range.

    You'll loose your tactical advantage if you OC.

    IIRC and FWIW the list could go on. But IANAL so keep my .02 to myself. I'm a firm believer in the RTKABA so I OC and CC. You gotta be careful about GATTTOTP in NC though, not all the LEO's know the NCSC rulings about OC. But how can a G19 in a OWB Sherpa holster be GATTTOTP? Who are the sheep making the MWAG calls? lol, it's just crazy.



    Wait, what did I say?

    How about spelling and punctuation: Maybe list the faux pas you see and then try you (your) hand at it...ie (i.e.,)- bad grammer (grammar), unrealistic carry gun, rediculous (ridiculous) to write "killer" on the side, oh and did I mention grammar.

    So, how do I get my cookies to brown better on the bottom? And, what the hell is a dutch oven?

    GBK, these are serious topics as are 9mm vs 38 or chambering and holstering and carrying while drinking.

    Airbake cookie sheets are notorious for not browning the bottom. Get a heavy weight darker cookie sheet. As for the dutch oven, a 5 1/2 qt Le Creuset enamel coated cast iron is probably the smallest you want to go for all around braising, chili making, etc (Key word: enamel coating vs bare cast iron - but there we go, that statement is very devisive ). Unless you are cooking for 4+ then you want nothing less than the 7 qt. As you go bigger they get heavier and that needs consideration (pot plus weight of contents).

    Opps, did I just talk about cooking on a defensive carry forum? If you want tips on making a clear chicken stock or maximum peaks for meringue just pm me.

    (I won't do this again)

    my faux pas/ forum pet peeves.

    1) Responding to a question that conveys to that person that they are stupid for asking such a thing.

    2) Responding in a manner that would be rude, or impolite had it been done in person. It's rather funny/sad to me thinking how some of these threads would look had we all been in the same room having a conversation. Not only to us, but also to guests that are previewing the site to decide if they want to be part of the community.

    For the tech crowd that might be around...
    I spent a huge amount of time in the world of Linux and forums in the mid-to-late 90s. There was a very elitist mindset about Linux then, and often when someone new to Linux would ask a basic question (that may have been answered before), the response would be RTFM (Read the F'ing Manual)... not exactly a welcoming feeling to a community.

    Now are we talking about the modern-stove-so-called dutch ovens or the real thing with legs to support it w/o snuffing out the embers/coals under it and a concave top to hold hot embers/coals on top?
