I made a keychain out of .22LR casings for a girl. Now several other people want me to make them something out of casings :| Although I think .22LR earrings would be pretty rad...

The problem is that I'd be working week days 3pm-11pm, and with all my friends working mornings it would effectively kill any chance of hanging out with people during the week.

Ye olde friends vs. career dilemma. I've got strong opinions on either side of the fence. Do what you think is right.

I actually have an update on the job hunt. Finally heard back from Bass Pro Shops and got an interview. I'd be working in the warehouse, stocking shelves, and helping customers. Hours are way better too; 5 or 6am to around 11am, so I'd have afternoons and nights off. Going back for a second interview later this week.

Freight/inventory in retail is alright. The best thing is that you're always active and you learn where everything in the store is located so that you're not dumbfounded when people ask.

Bought 10 ft of R-Hop material (because they wouldn't sell it any shorter) to upgrade my hop up in my mp5. The question is do I also hop my M4 that comes in this week or leave it stock. Never done a R-Hop before.

They being McMaster? Yeah, they lie about that, you just have to order the shorter length. I've ordered a foot or two before and had no trouble. It seems stupid, and looking back I didn't need 10 feet of it in my first order (which ended up getting lost somewhere)...

Yeah I ordered some semi-soft from McMaster. Never ordered from them before so I have no idea about ship times. It is coming from Atlanta though.

Today I got a Facebook message out of the blue from a kid I haven't seen since the 5th grade (For reference I just finished my freshman year of college). The following is the conversation. I'm blue, he is red.

It turns out that at least a quarter of the letters in his messages when copy/pasted into google come up as Cyrillic letters. Morons.

Whoops. Thanks for that. Not too concerned with being secret here (I'm pretty sure multiple people on here are friends with me on Facebook or at least know who I am on Facebook), but I thought I'd do it anyway to be nice.

Thought: I need a good rifle case, and need to get better foam for my HK45 case. Only problem is that I have two average quality handgun cases, and they are both a bit small for what I need. I did find THIS though. Pricing doesn't seem too bad for just the foam.

.380, 9x19mm, or 9x18mm for conceal carry?
