Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Anyone in Chicago want to make an easy $20?

Howdy all,

I need to have an errand run for me in the Chicago area. It will take very little time and very little effort, and there's a crisp virtual $20 bill in it for you.

PM me if you'd like to help me out!

Thanks,
Michael

are they using a 120 course or something different? i have a few drills for various firearm problems. most people are really trying to aim too much i have found, or they do not line up the target correctly.

Naw, it's all sight alignment & trigger control. My instructor teaches SWAT teams and the like.

Teagoggy, I called last night. I know you're up at the track wearing your spandex. How was the Metra ride?

mmmmm swat teams, nothing like the feel of running through live fire kill rooms, except doing it in a real world situation(s).
