    I was looking at one of these yesterday. Then I remembered these posts.

    I bought a Ruger SR22 instead.

    1. avatar KCK says:

      I have a Ruger SR 22 and a Walther PK380(wife’s).
      The grips on them are soooo similar, love them both and the P22 is just like the PK.
      Both grips and my hand fits so sweet.
      Don’t want to replace my full size M&P but a PPQ would be considered for the grip alone.

  3. Let the hilarity ensue!!

    Commence whining!!

      Here you go:
      PUHLEEZE not again!!!

      1. You win “first whine”

    2. avatar Lucas D. says:

      I’ve decided to forgo the “whining” Paul loves so much from us lesser beings, and instead propose a contest where the prize is permanently suturing his big, smarmy mouth closed.

      Show of hands; who wants in?

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Actually, unless he’s typing with his teeth, what good would it do?

      2. You non-denoms are such meanies!!


  4. avatar Tom from Georgia says:

    I fear FGS got you folks at TTAG by the short ones somehow…or struck a deal that just couldn’t be refused. No problem with the contest and daily entry part, but it might be nice to have included a DEADLINE for the darn thing…just saying.


    1. avatar peirsonb says:

      When you enter there is a countdown timer on the “rotorcopter” (or whatever it calls itself) page. It ends tomorrow.

      1. avatar Stinkeye says:

        Wait, this contest ends tomorrow? Why the hell haven’t they been promoting it, then? This is the first I’ve heard about any sort of Walther P22 giveaway.

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Well, good news! You still have 24 hours to get your entry in!

        2. avatar Stinkeye says:

          In case I forget, I sure hope there will be some sort of reminder later today or tomorrow.

        3. avatar Kevin says:

          They’ve been promoting it for at least a week.

        4. avatar Stinkeye says:

          Sarcasm, my boy. Sarcasm.

  5. avatar Swarf says:

    This is moving in to Dadaist performance art territory now.

    I’m starting to like it.

    1. Precisely!! It is performance art.

  6. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

    Can somebody go to Dan’s house and check to see if he’s alright?
    I’m reminded of the scene in “On the Beach” where the nuclear sub went around the world to find the source of the morse code only to find a telegraph key tied to a window shade flapping in the breeze….

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Jeez man, put a “SPOILER ALERT” on stuff like that, would ya?

      1. avatar peirsonb says:

        Is there a statute of limitations on “spoiler alert?” Because I’m pretty sure that would qualify….

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Of course there is. For live TV, I’d say about 48 hours from airtime, unless it’s a major thing like a season finale, in which case I’d allow a week or so. For movies, I’d say it’s until the DVD comes out, basically. Beyond that, I don’t think anyone has any right to expect an alert. That said, I will generally inquire as to whether someone has seen a given show or movie before revealing a major plot point or finale in conversation with them. If someone happens to overhear a conversation that they’re not involved in, I take no responsibility for that.

          Story time: When Breaking Bad ended, I was somewhere in the first half of season four (BB went 5 seasons). I knew the series finale would be a big deal, and I didn’t want it spoiled. I successfully managed to avoid hearing anything about how it ended for nearly two months after the finale, and then I heard the ending mentioned on the radio. But even then, it was only a passing reference, it was only about 5-6 words long, and knowing the basic fact of the ending didn’t lessen the experience at all for me. In fact, it may have actually heightened it, because I was intrigued to see how it would play out.

        2. avatar Matt in FL says:

          So, story time #2. Here is your one and only warning: There will be black boxes below. Highlight them with your mouse (click and drag) to see what’s under the black box. I will leave part of it uncovered so you can decide if you want to look or not. If you spoil something you haven’t seen, do NOT whine to me. FURTHER NOTE: After looking at this post on my phone, it is actually possible to see through the black boxes if you try. So don’t try. Unless you want to. It actually works out, because there’s no way to highlight things easily on a phone, but it’s obscured enough that you can’t read it at a glance. This is a workable solution.

          On with the story:

          I’m a fan of Fark, and back in June there was a thread about the new-at-the-time Superman movie, Man of Steel. Some ways into it, the following was posted, along with the response below it. (Quotes are in italics.)

          Magorn: A perfect example of this was the old Nick Cage movie Con Air, which was a halfway decent film until somebody decided it needed the “runaway plane destroying the Vegas Strip” scene. In that single scene they destroyed the plot of the movie and mde John Cusak’s charachter, the obstensible hero, wrong and Colm Meany, the supposed villain of the piece, to be right. That Plane SHOULD have been shot down before it was allowed to do that much damage, and kill (presumably) that many people as it roared out of control into a city crowded with thousand of pedestrians

          wow man, nice spoiler alert dickhole.

          A short time later…

          wow man, nice spoiler alert dickhole.
          And Bruce Willis was actually dead the whole time.

          5 minutes later:

          wow man, nice spoiler alert dickhole.
          And Bruce Willis was actually dead the whole time.

          Kong dies at the end.

          2 hours later:

          wow man, nice spoiler alert dickhole.
          And Bruce Willis was actually dead the whole time.
          Kong dies at the end.
          Darth Vader is Luke’s father.
          Rosebud was a sled

          The call is coming from inside the house!

          By the time I checked back some hours later, this is how it looked:

          wow man, nice spoiler alert dickhole.
          And Bruce Willis was actually dead the whole time.
          Kong dies at the end.
          Darth Vader is Luke’s father.
          Rosebud was a sled
          The call is coming from inside the house!
          The Titanic sinks.
          Kevin Spacey is Keyser Soze.
          Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are the same person.
          Snape kills Dumbledore…
          Dil has a penis.

          Donald Sutherland’s character falls asleep.
          Hulk Hogan gets beat down, but the roar of the crowd reenergizes him! Suddenly, his opponent’s punched have no effect! He grabs the opponent, Irish whip into the ropes, clothes line, then the giant leg drop! Hogan Wins!
          George “The Animal” Steel gets disqualified for chasing after Elizabeth and eating a turnbuckle.
          Bob Newhart wakes up next to Suzanne Pleshette, realizes he was dreaming the whole time.

          The baby in the basket turns out to be the Destined Leader of the Jews.
          Hot Rod becomes the new leader of the Autobots, Rodimus Prime.
          Pam finds out she just dreamed that Bobby was dead and wakes up to find him in the shower.
          The dead guy that’s been laying there the whole time is actually the killer.
          He escapes the nuclear blast and shows up in Italy with his new girlfriend in time to share a nod with his former butler.

          It’s a dream, within a dream, within a dream…and is this reality, or another dream?

          The lesson? Don’t complain about spoilers on Fark.

          I’m now going to hit Submit, and hope I didn’t mess up any codes and show things I didn’t mean to.

        3. avatar peirsonb says:

          I’m basically on the “Netflix delay” for most of the shows that I watch. Anywhere from 1-2 seasons behind.

          As an aside, I noticed a while ago with the rise of DVD releases of shows and now with binge watching on streaming sites how “season” became the measure of a show. I remember always talking about episodes, but no one ever new what “season” we were in. Hell, we were surprised to find out how long most of the shows we used to watch really lasted…

        4. avatar peirsonb says:

          If you spoil something you haven’t seen, do NOT whine to me.

          I don’t know what it is, I’ve found myself to be fairly immune to spoilers. They just don’t ruin things for me.

          And, thanks a lot. Will you PLEASE quit posting stuff like this minutes before quitting time? I’m tired of wiping off my monitor before I go home.

      2. avatar Swarf says:

        I’m a fan of Fark,

        Mmm hmm. I thought so.


        1. avatar Matt in FL says:


          Me too. I don’t spend much time there anymore, especially not like I used to, but I’ve been a TFer for (holy crap!) a decade.

        2. avatar Swarf says:

          11 years for me, so yeah, I know the feeling. Feels weird.

    2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      I was gonna watch that movie tonight.
      Now it’s shot to hell.

      1. avatar Jared-Tampa says:

        Spoiler alert: everyone dies.

      2. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

        Are we all talking about the same movie? My original comment was for a very old black & white movie made in 1959. Please tell me they haven’t remade it…. with Will Smith or Bruce Willis…. or Julie Roberts….

        1. avatar jwm says:

          They did remake it. The remake was so bland and unneeded that I barely remembered it was actually made.
