I shoots straight. Have 300 rounds through it now. I can already tell I want to change out the trigger, but I'll roll with what I've got for the time being.
The larue MBT is hard to beat for the price if you can wait.

An alarm going off at 0500 is one of the most depressing sounds in my world. I shouldn't be awake before that angry ball of fire in the sky, the moon is my friend.

Yep. I work with 3 other members on this forum. I have only hung out with one outside of work. We are actually going to put some lead down range on Sunday morning @CALEMT.


Sounds like there might be some members going to EMS World expo this year so I will probably see some more there.

I need to buy a gun or bow.

I need to get a new gun! Once I finish moving this weekend, and get a new CCW license there I'm looking at buying a new handgun. Not sure what yet. Just time for a new gun.

2 days off after a weekend filled with near-drownings, airway classes, DKA's, and dusting off my supe hat. Yes, I do believe 2 easy days are in order.

2 tubes in 2 months. No OR time for me!

I dont hate getting paid for intubation practice. I just hate spending my day off in the OR and possibly not getting any tubes.

It's been a while for me. Every arrest has been a King LT. No RSI in Georgia, so if they get an advanced airway, they're usually good and dead.

well I just witness my first paramedic caused MVA. Paramedic(fly car) was driving middle lane of NYS thruway, L&S going about 40. Didn't get off on any exit(15 or so miles between each exit). Nobody let anybody in during the construction zone, and now NYSP has a big clean up ahead of them.

Anybody with more experience then I have any idea why a fly car would be going 40 in. 65 mph when they weren't responding to a call on the highway? Whenever I think of/use my lights and sirens it's because you need to get somewhere in a hurry.

When you pick up overtime on an 11.5 hour day car (1000-2130) and it's 30 min in, and your partner still hasn't shown up yet, but that's ok, I needed an extra couple of minutes to clean up all the trash that was in the cab, like really? Who's leaving trash in the rig at end of shift??
