  2. i would like that 704..... would you be opposed to meeting up?
  3. a $5 donation to a children's cancer hospital/ clinic. because no kid should have to suffer cancer...
  4. there's a lot to consider with paintball markers. the game was originally started by some guys using fencing masks and markers that farmers used to mark their cattle and trees. there are several types of markers used. you have your basic co2 guns that run from single shot pump action. to semiauto electrics. than there are the super electrics. they used compressed air, force fed hoppers (ammo holder on top of the marker that feeds the balls into the gun) and cost $1000's of dollars. all this in an attempt to put as many rounds as accurately as possible down field. any of these guns could achieve the results your students came up with. like a few have said there's a lot to consider. obviously weather conditions, not only things like wind, but rain, heat, cold all effect how a paintball travels and actually it's size. which is another factor, they make different inside diameter multi-piece barrels so a player can more accurately control the path of the paintballs. also the paintballs themselves are a big factor. the higherend paintballs are as close to being perfectly round as can be acheived. where on cheaper paint they can get oblong and quick.
  5. so i was lucky enough to win a second chance drawing from the nj lottery. i won a $300 ny jets gift card to their store. the card is still in original condition. with the pin code on the back still unscratched. the card is not activated yet. i'm looking to get $200 cash pick up or meet up with in reason. i do not have paypal so please don't ask. may consider trade for plug turning wood, plug kits, dry top. i'm pretty much looking for the cash with christmas coming up and bills to pay.
  6. i would say it's the fact that they will eat anything is what's killing them.
  7. i'm in thank you
  8. sorry i don't know how he does it. i just know he does. even had to make and sign a statement once when i first started working for him. maybe i can find out from him how he does it. i know all of his businesses are retail. i think the one he has the most problems with this issue is the florist his wife runs.
  9. sorry i may not have personal experience. i don't think i contradicted someone's experience. i just said not sure how you could lose with a signed documentation. besides, i have a boss, the owner of the store i work for and several other businesses. there have been several cases with his other businesses and a couple with ours that dealt with people fighting charges. i think since i've been with him he's only lost a few at most. not sure how he does it but he does win the majority of them. than again there's not much he loses. not even when he's fired someone and was able to keep them from collecting unemployment. yeah cause i've never seen anyone on this site offer opinions on things they know nothing about.
  10. i think the credit plans are done through the big store or a credit company they deal with. it's not people using their own credit cards. kinda like getting a lowes cc and making payments on a washer/dryer. why not look into being able to offer payment plans or credit? like the big guys have. a credit card machine can not be all that bad. to off set the costs have the customers pay for it. just make sure the customers know that they have to pay extra for cc payments. try not to take cc non refundable payments. i can't see how people can fight and win acontest of a charge on their cc. especially if they sign the receipt. you have the proof they approved of the payment with their signature on it.
  11. i bought a couple of pencil poppers the beginning of summer. had the hooks break off. they were brittle and fell off with out even having caught a fish. contacted them and sent in the bad plugs. within a couple of weeks they sent me a handful of replacements. haven't had any problems since than with the hooks. but i don't catch fish so not sure how they hold up to a fight. i'll admit to using them and liking them. i have added both cheapo and top of the line plugs to my bag. i reach for the cheapo's more often than the top of the line stuff. i lost a few rare and more expensive plugs a little while back. haven't caught fish on either type of plug. so losing the more expensive ones really hurt. it's easier for someone like myself to replace a tsunami than an rm or afterhours or any of those guys lures. there's a lot of moral stuff going around with tsunami's products. unfortunately i would love to buy from other makers of things like rods and reels and plugs. but i just can't afford to. i bought a few "pro builder" plugs over the past year. i've been able to buy over double that getting tsunami plugs for less than what i paid for the "pro" ones. i want to fish when i want to fish. can't wait till i save up enough money to replace lost plugs or broken equipment. would i want a gloomis rod or a zeebaas reel or a plug bag full of rm's, luna's, afterhours or any of the great plug builders? yeah i would but unfortunately reality is, i can't. i don't feel bad for the pro builders either though. have you even seen the blitz that happens when rm's are received in timS's store? within minutes they are sold out. so these guys are not losing any money or interest from their hard work.
  12. i thought there was one more week in october? well at least to my calender there is.
  13. if your in that area and find a rather large korker lonely and scared. let me know lost one in that area not too long ago...... i like that area a lot. but since i have no fishing skills i catch hardly anything. but i'll keep going back when i can. eventually i got to get it right, right?
  14. an oldie but still a goodie to me, A grade school teacher gave the assignment to her class, that each student should think of a story and then a moral for that story to share with the class the next day. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story, and little Suzy raises her hand. "My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road." The teacher asks for the moral of the story and Suzy replies, "Don't keep all your eggs in one basket." Next little Lucy offers to tell her story Lucy, and she says, "Well my dad owns a farm too and every weekend we take the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only 8 of the 12 eggs hatched." The teacher asks for the moral of the story and Lucy replies, "Don't count your eggs before they're hatched." Finally it's little Johnny's turn and he says, "My uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam war, and his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed with only a machine gun, a machete, and case of beer. On the way down he drank the case of beer." "Unfortunately, he landed right in the middle of 100 Vietnamese soldiers. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but ran out of bullets, so he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. The blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands." The teacher looks in shock at Johnny and asks if there is possibly any moral to his story and Johnny replies, "Don't f--- with uncle Ted when he's been drinking."
  15. we are going to save the one he has left. but i was hoping someone might have done the same thing and might be willing to part with it. we will just order another pair from the store this weekend if nothing pops up by than.
