They hurt -- had a .45 case jump up, hit the bill of my ball cap, ricochet down, cleared the minute space between my safety glasses and ended up on the area just below my eyelid. Almost died, I tell ya.
Bass Pro was the same. Wonder why they have to have so many employees check? Another LGS I frequent, took 10 minutes. Only reason I did the Bass Pro was they had a P238 Scorpion -- a Bass Pro exclusive that Mrs. Tinyman wanted (needed).
You bet. You mentioned the SA-35 -- I just got one and am thrilled. If there was any complaints it would be they ship with just one magazine. That is easy to fix, I got two MEC-GAR 10 rounders off eBay.
99.999% of the time Mrs. Tinyman wants to be nearby when I have phone conversations -- probably the right thing and smart too. I'll give the VA (AI puke) what for and she tells me, "don't cuss". At that point, I tell them about questionable parentage.
