    Roku Premiere

    I subscribe to the Sling Blue package during the NBA season to watch Grizzlies games. The bill was $27.36 per month with taxes/fees, and you can cancel any time; your service will continue until the period for which you already paid ends. I am not crazy about their user interface, but their service has been solid. I tried their cloud DVR, but canceled it after the first month. It was not available on certain channels. In particular it was not available on Fox Sports SE alt 1, and that's the channel that covered most of the Griz games. I could "record' the games that came on FSSE alt 2. I anticipate I'll sign up again in the fall. They will also run specials where you get some sort of hardware (like a Roku or HD antenna) if you prepay for two (2) or three (3) months when you start new service. One nice thing is that a lot of the programming is available "on demand", so even if you don't have Cloud DVR you can likely watch the regular shows whenever you want. Live PD was an example of a show that was available "on demand". Let me know if you have any questions.
  3. Here's a later article with more details. The owner of said vehicle has been charged. https://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2019/05/15/mother-shot-by-son-baseball-game-police-describes-it-an-accident/

    Taurus G2C

    I received a 9MM G2C in exchange for a first generation 24/7 Pro DS (40c) that had extraction issues and was subject to the Taurus Carter settlement. So far, I've only put twenty (20) rounds through it. The good news is that I didn't have any problems with those rounds. Hopefully I'll have a chance to put more rounds down range soon. She should definitely handle several candidates before she selects one. It would be even better if she can find some candidates to borrow or rent. She might discover how they shot affects her choice.
  6. I need another podcast to listen to like I need another hole in my head, but I decided I'd look into "In the Dark". I listened to S2E13, and I was really impressed with the quality.
  7. Praying for and you...
  8. I've prayed for you and your mom.
  9. Not sure which is worse, loosing it all together or having a negligent discharge while picking it up off the dance floor.

    NRA Rant

    Let me introduce you to The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF). I think they've done more for the 2nd Amendment in the courts over the last ten (10) or twelve (12) years. The NRA has focused more on the legislative side. https://www.saf.org/ I am a member of NRA and SAF.

    Hot Sauce

    Found it on an end cap at the Aldi in Collierville. The bottles were smaller than I imagined. There was about a box (mixed) left. I bought a bottle of Chipotle. I am not a fire eater, and I didn't think it was hot at all. Good, though. Have some more.
  12. I rented a Glock 22, M&P compact (.40 I think), and a Ruger SR9c. I liked the trigger on the SR9c the best, but I was talked out of considering it. The Sig P320 hadn't been out long, and I got to dry fire one--there wasn't one available to rent at that point. I was strongly considering the P320 when Bud's had a good deal on some Police turn in M&Ps, so I ended up with a M&P40c.
  13. I bought a new 24/7 Pro DS. The trigger pull was super long, but the main issue was with feeding. I experienced failures to feed (hanging on extractor) about 10% of the time with brass cased ammo (with both mags). It fed steel cased ammo fine--the grooves on the steel cases is different. I returned it. I got it back in about two (2) weeks with an indication that it had been "adjusted". I could tell the extractor had been filed. Then it only failed about 5% of the time. I called, and they told me they had no problems with it using American Eagle ammo--I've never seen steel cased AE. They begrudgingly paid for me to send it back again. This time they "adjusted" it again and replaced the recoil spring assembly. After that I was able to shoot about 400 rounds (mostly brass cased ammo) before it started experiencing failures again. I decided to exchange it when the settlement agreement was finalized. Taurus botched that for sure. It took way too long. They finally sent my replacement without any contact information, so it set at the FFL for weeks before I called to check on it. I didn't like either choice I was offered. I might have tried the Curve, but there is a major flaw. If you short stroke the trigger, you have to rack it before the trigger will reset. And, no sights... That's why I'm now a Taurus skeptic (at least for their own semi-auto designs). We'll see if I lighten my stance any once I shoot my replacement.
