Is there anyone else besides me watching this CIRCUS?

Hmmm, dont know about your guns, but my 9mm holds 19+1. So 4 mags, 2 in each back pocket plus whats in the gun is close to 100, and you would never know I have them, because concealed means concealed.
Now in AR's, you pop a 100 round drum in, and throw a couple 40 round mags in a few pockets, and that would be real trouble.
But after all, we are talking about hypothetical here, not real life.
And my AR's, AK's, Tavor's and Kriss's all identify as .22 cal squirrel guns.
If you don't believe them, you are raaaassssiiiiiiisssss and against LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ peeple.
32 round 9 mm mags times 6 in each per pocket plus the 18 rounds you can get in the full size 17 round M & P 9 mm mag if I remember right plus the one in the chamber. That is 19 rounds in the hand gun. I am just playing with you but this is a fact I tried it yesterday
I don't and won't use facebook but I will offer up my opinion that there are good folks on there as well, just like on the dark side. You just won't notice them through the forest of morons. My wife has been marketing some of my parts there and the inquiries and questions are markedly different than here on the forum, but there are a few guys that have been supportive and have passed on our info to many others, emailed her with leads, and posted positive reviews and pictures for us. I met a couple of them in Huntsville at homecoming, Floyd Hebbard and John Phillips. Good guys both of them!
The higher the percentage of idiots, the easier it is to condemn a particular platform but it really only takes one to irritate a lot of people. It's my belief that this forum has self-regulated itself by the genuine and sincere camaraderie that is shown by everyone present.
What really interests me is the anger that people can work up over this when all you have to do is tune out or alter your attitude to consider it entertainment. If you're beating your head against the wall, you're doing it wrong.
The big problem that I have with this is the good people that keep responding to these people. If there were no response you would think that they would go away or at least move to some other platform.
Might try a ceramic coating on the paint, bit thicker and harder than a traditional wax. It's on my to-do list to do to my sling, just haven't had the time.
A new guy on TDS posted about it and showed his results, so I'm going to attempt to duplicate.
The F-11 just takes a few minutes to apply to the Sling.
Thankfully, I have never used Facebook but Kay is a “Facebook Stalker” and never posts publicly. She does, however, reads me some of the statements made (never Slingshot related as she is a “Harley Person” and some are downright cruel. “Little Minds” spewing hurtful garbage aimed at “shocking” people into the same shit pan in which they reside.
No thank you. Not for me.
Letting those “Little Minds” and their stench get under our skin makes those low life’s winners. I, for one, will not let that happen.
Riding behind FunCycle or Sling Cat or Goats_Hogs or ThomaSS is riding behind the best of the best for sure. Real people who exemplify what those Facebook shitheads can only dream of. Jealousy breeds resentment and thus produces attacks.
Too bad those “Little Minds” have a ‘search and destroy” mission and ruin what could be a great platform for constructive criticism. Too bad that a lot of newer owners land there.
For what it is worth Br4hm4 , you have pioneered the Sling for 1500 days. You have been there when Owners needed anything. You are respected! You are eons ahead of those who’s only purpose is to ridicule anything and anyone better than they are.
Jealousy breeds resentment and resentment is never a winner!
YOU are the winner my friend!
That is why we have block. I only have blocked 3 or 4 on this forum and the other 3 have moved on. You do not even want to know how many were blocked on the dark side, even the admin. that we could not block. A short story that I will not repeat and I think the maddest I have ever been in my life.
FB WTF We have everything here. I feel almost lucky for finding this site. We get at the best mediocre tech answers, latest gossip and how to spend your money on things (mods) that are not necessary. Just kidding.
This site has saved me tons of money for being technically accurate, available 24/7, including do's and don'ts as well as keeping updates on mod's and fixes.
I commend the staff for their diligent efforts. Thank you to the staff and supporting members!
Question: @ what point do you stop doing MODS? My air conditioner in the house quit a few weeks ago and I am torn between $4500 for a new a/c unit or more Slingshot MODS. I have come to get used to 95* to 100* in the house (Florida) when I gat home but the mornings are a cool 80* to 85* Fall will be here soon...
I am not a member of any of the so called social web sites, FB, Qz Twitter etc. so I am relying on the members here for answers to help me solve this dilemma.
Whatever you can get away with, what the the wants the wife get's. It is easier that way.
I have been part of the slingshot community for over 1500 days now. And most of the old school folks on this site and on that other site have always been great. They want to develop community, they want to develop friendships...do things in their community and for each other. I have noticed over the last year now...that the newest owners of Slingshots are turning a lot of the pages on Facebook in to drama filled high school playgrounds. It's gotten so bad that I have contemplated selling the slingshot and just walking away from it all. Walk away from the reviews that I write, walk away from the social aspect of what slingshots have done over the last 4+ years., walk away from the essentially everything slingshot related... so on and so on.
I run a few of the larger pages on Facebook (8K members or more) and it went from fun to work. I am just grateful for this community and those long timers that I have had a chance to meet here. This site reminds me that the reasons I kept the slingshot after my first year were the right reasons. People like Painter kev wokka SlingRider and many more I have met and talked to over the phone are the ones that have helped create the community that I enjoy being a part of. It's been said before and I will say it again... Thank you rabtech for this online community.
Kind of a ramble...but it's been on my mind for a few weeks. Everyone can carry on with their day.
Why would you give up the Sling just because of some BS on FB or the Dark Side? I have never done FB and never will, as far as I am concerned the people who do; do not have a life and just want to try and impress someone even though they do not know them. IMHO and nothing against the people that do use.
We saw that on Sat. 4 State Troopers were coming back. We saw them up close holding the line. County Mountie + EMS truck just leaving the site. Just huge oil spill and ditch cleaned out. Have no idea what it was. Anyone see more?

Just about 30 or so feet of grass and bushes pushed down enough to know that what ever was headed in the direction of Bristol. I did not see anything on the road at all.
Just a couple of Mods at first, looking at the F4=3 windshield, the stock is just a bit to low for my height, and a Wycked Trailer hitch so I can tow my motorcyle camper. Anything else ill see in person at one of the meets next year.
If you really drive hard start with the performance mods first. IMHO DDM short shifter, Hawk 5.0 brake pads and of course the brake master cylinder brace. They you can really pick up from there
If I may ask. What kind of camera do you use for your recordings of your drives?
Someone cleaned out the ditch on a hard left hand turn on the north bound above the Snake store on Sunday, it looked real fresh on Monday morning on the way out from Bristol to get home. Like Hodge said nothing like a little last fling on the way out early in the morning.
Let us put the large count magazines of the AR and the AK's in perspective. Let us just say how many of these (AK/AR) mags can you put in the back pocket of your jeans (2 Pockets)? For the sake of argument how many, let us just use the 9 mm mags for example will fit in those same two pockets of the jeans? Round count wise that equals 192 rounds of 9 mm in each pocket plus whatever mag happens to be in the hand gun. You do not need a vest. Just something for people to think about.
Miles/smiles per gallon equals 27.905 for 1,970.6 miles for the whole trip
Gas data for the week of Mayhem in the Mountains The total for the gas was 70.617 gallons the total number of miles were 1,970.6 So the gas mileage equals 27.905 smiles/miles per gallon. Now that is the real way you get accurate miles per gallon. Not off of the computer or by the tank full.
I happen to know that your phone has a camera - but like you I have no idea how it works or how you get the picture out when you are done
That just means that only we can see the pictures.
Let me expand on this a little.
Yes, the government has all that, more specifically, the US Military has all that.
But then you have that pesky little law that states the US Military CAN NOT be used against the citizens of this country,
And ANY order stating for them to do that should and would be ignored by the majority of the members of the military.
Now, for what the law abiding citizens of the US has.
They have jets, we have planes, more planes than they have jets, yes, they can shoot ours down, if there are pilots to fly their jets against citizens.
They have tanks, a few peeps in the US has a tank or two, and only if they have soldiers to operate their tanks.
They have artillery, some patriots have rocket launchers and heavier stuff than most of us have.
They have hummers, we have 4x4's, jeeps, sidexsides and whatever.
They have M-16's, we have AR-15's with the same ammo they have, green tips, red tips, Hollow points, yadayadayada. They carry 3-4 magazines, We carry dozens and dozens of mags, 100 round drums
There is 507,158 soldiers in the army, 347,693 soldiers in the navy, 347,352 soldiers in the air force, 179,762 marines.
There are an estimated 320 MILLION LEGAL guns in the US.
YOU DO THE MATH!!!!
Thank you for the numbers
Has anyone else had issues with the passenger mirror? I bought the mirrors off Slingmods and installed them the other day. First day out the passenger side mirror fell off and broke but the tape stayed stuck to the original. Now I can't use the stock mirror because that tape wouldn't come off without scraping, and that scratched the crap out of the mirror. The problem I found with the new mirror is the back is flat and we're trying to stick it to a convex surface.
Slingmods had me send them a photo and will forward it to the manufacturer to get a replacement, but I'll have to do something to modify the surfaces.
Yes, someone else had the same problem. The mirror fell off in a parking lot and was not hurt he just cleaned everything up and used some more 2 sided tape to put it back on.
I just watched the Hodge video. I wanted him to lead at his own pace but he wanted to follow and I used the brakes a few times as a warning an I slowed down some. I wish he had got the second part on video but he thought it was over and cut it off. It looks like he was doing pretty good. The place where I really slowed down at the beginning was to put the water cup in the cup holder, I had forgot it again and almost lost it.
I did make it home around 5 pm. Total miles for the week 1,970.6 I will figure the gas mileage later, I have not done that in a couple of years
