Oh For Fuck's Sake!!! The University of Georgia has some ideas about safe sex. Karen style.

The University of Georgia is urging students to wear masks while having sex.

The university reportedly sent out notices to on-campus students that said they should “consider wearing a face mask during sex. Heavy breathing and panting can further spread the virus, and wearing a mask can reduce the risk,” according to OutKick.

There are a number of jobs that are a young person's domain. One category of these jobs would be cement masons, concrete finishers, and terrazzo workers. 'My life pouring concrete'

The ritual was to arrive at work half an hour early, so I could gradually wake up in the car listening to the radio, drinking coffee, and eating doughnuts. I’d park my Honda Fit beside the site foreman’s pick-up truck. His morning pre-shift was like mine, except that his breakfast was vodka-soda with painkillers. Another two labourers usually arrived after I did: an irritable six-foot-three indigenous guy called by everyone, including himself, the “BFI,” which stood for “Big F-cking Indian”; and a cocaine-addled Italian who split “a gram or two with the wife” nightly, pairing it with a three-litre bottle of red wine. He claimed to sleep only two hours, which I never doubted, since he had to commute an hour to get on site at 6am. Of my colleagues, only the BFI always worked sober, having survived years of alcoholism (not to mention some prison time).

At age 20, I’d started my first week in construction, excavating a commercial space for a liquor store. The dark pits of freshly-dug soil gave the air a musty sweetness that stuck in the back of the throat. We’d spend 12-hour days digging trenches in the subterranean dark, and then fill them up with concrete. The ready mix splashed onto my skin and made my eyes burn, while men yelled monosyllabic instructions over the din of engines. The air smelled of diesel, with notes of liquid metal thanks to the welders. On break, we made our way outside, the only time we saw the sun, to immediately contaminate the fresh air with a round of cigarettes. True to stereotype, not one woman escaped our gaze. They were something to look at that wasn’t steel, dirt, dust, or rock.

This is how some men spend the majority of their lives.

I enjoy a good hamburger. Do you? And if you had $1,600 to blow without consequence would you order this burger medium rare?

Houston's swanky H Bar is serving up a $1,600 burger that takes conspicuous consumption to a whole new level. While it's far from the only extravagantly-priced stunt sandwich on the market, the Black Gold burger is surely the first meant to be a gilded tribute to Houston's oil industry, using actual 24-carat gold leaf in the black brioche bun.

The burger's other ingredients will be familiar to those who have followed the ultra-expensive burger game: sixteen ounces of Wagyu beef flown in from Japan, seared foie gras, black truffles and truffle aioli, all piled between the striking black and gold bun.

The Law According To Karens, Thou Shalt Not Have Any Fun.

Police have shut down an illegal rave after hundreds of revellers broke coronavirus restrictions to party into the early hours of the morning. An estimated 500 youngsters converged on Epping Forest for the organised event held near the North Circular Road in north London. The rave broke current government guidelines making it illegal for more than 30 people to gather in one place – unless social distancing measures are in place. Footage from last night shows dozens of people crammed in together on the makeshift dance floor in the woods, which boasted huge speakers and fairy lights weaved through the trees.

Toss a Slurpee and become a Genius Award Winner.

AUGUST 8--A Florida Man was jailed yesterday on a felony Slurpee battery charge, records show.

Investigators allege that Brian Duffy, 40, last month doused a 7-Eleven employee with the frozen treat during a 9:20 AM argument about the drink’s price inside a store in Pinellas Park.

According to an arrest affidavit, a surveillance camera recorded Duffy “back handing the cup full of a Slurpee drink” out of the female victim’s hand. The Slurpee “flew onto the victim’s person,” a cop reported.

While Duffy left 7-Eleven before police responded, the victim yesterday afternoon “pointed the defendant out to law enforcement,” apparently after he returned to the convenience store.

A happy ending involving the police and it's newbie K-9. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Newly licensed Dyfed-Powys Police dog Max, and his handler PC Peter Lloyd, were crucial in tracking down the woman who had spent a night in a remote location Wales with her young child.

The two-year-old German Shepherd mix was called into duty at just before noon on August 1, when the force received a call reporting the pair missing in Powys.

"The woman had not been seen or spoken to for two days, which was out of character, and her phone wasn't working, so naturally concern for her safety was high," Inspector Jonathan Rees-Jones said.

Melbourne, Australia lockdown: Police issued 276 fines on Sunday for stage 4 virus breaches

There were 276 Victorians fined in the past 24 hours, with 74 people caught breaching the 8pm to 5am curfew and 37 given infringements for failing to wear a face covering.

Among the others slapped with infringements for breaching coronavirus restrictions was a man spotted running across Edgedale Rd in Kew after curfew who claimed he was just getting cigarettes.

Another four were found in a car parked in Campbellfield and told they were just "hanging out" despite being from different addresses.

Five others were caught drinking, smoking and listening to loud music in a garage in Wyndham after neighbours made a noise complaint to police.

27 General question for the Horde:

Are online dating websites/apps a good idea?

My traditional position has been no; however, as I don't do well in social interactions with complete strangers, I haven't had much luck up to this point. Besides, my profession being what it is, it's rather hard to meet members of the fair sex who don't consider voting for Trump grounds for castration. So I'm just curious whether resorting to the web is as much a sign of desperation as I thought it was.

Please keep the cruel jokes at my expense to a minimum....

So we decided to do all vinyl wood look flooring throughout all the rooms.
This past week we have had a dozen different Hispanic workers in here for many hours at a time.. man! those guys are hard workers..
And the ones painting and caulking the baseboards the other day.. yikes! nice to have 20 year old knees!
It turned out amazing.. with insurance paying less than half.. but it's been something we wanted to do for a long time.
Of course.. new floors? Wife sez.. How can we put those crappy old dining room chairs in the new dining room??? And so it begins.. ^sigh^

75 Hi Nurse!
How was the hike?
Lots of flowers?

In a quandry talked about on a hiking site I frequent/lurk.
Oregon has raised camping fees for out of state visitors. The idea is to raise money as the state is starting to notice a decline in revenue from some unknown reason. It's also to discourage the use of said campgrounds.
Economics? How do it work?

So, in case anyone missed it, happy Nagasaki day (I guess there's no such day, and no such salutation, but here and now, there are).

Highly recommend anyone visiting Kysushu to visit Nagasaki, very pleasant little city. Mellow. Most of Kyushu has a mellow pace compared to the megalopolises of Honshu. Two recos when visiting Nagasaki - get a one- or multi-day streetcar pass. Great way to get around (and one line runs all the way out to the Urakami Valley part of town, which was Ground Zero and has the bomb museum).

And do the Mitsubishi shipyard tour. If at all interested in heavy industry and shipbuilding.

And also Glover Gardens and neighborhoods near it - great views of the harbor and inlet and city, and shipyard.

Melbourne, Australia lockdown: Police issued 276 fines on Sunday for stage 4 virus breaches

There were 276 Victorians fined in the past 24 hours, with 74 people caught breaching the 8pm to 5am curfew and 37 given infringements for failing to wear a face covering.

Among the others slapped with infringements for breaching coronavirus restrictions was a man spotted running across Edgedale Rd in Kew after curfew who claimed he was just getting cigarettes.

Another four were found in a car parked in Campbellfield and told they were just "hanging out" despite being from different addresses.

Five others were caught drinking, smoking and listening to loud music in a garage in Wyndham after neighbours made a noise complaint to police.

119 27 General question for the Horde:

Are online dating websites/apps a good idea?

My traditional position has been no; however, as I don't do well in social interactions with complete strangers, I haven't had much luck up to this point. Besides, my profession being what it is, it's rather hard to meet members of the fair sex who don't consider voting for Trump grounds for castration. So I'm just curious whether resorting to the web is as much a sign of desperation as I thought it was.

For those that do not remember, that whole story is about how the star-bellied Sneetches discriminate against the smooth-bellied Sneetches, until someone comes along and starts selling star placement and star removal services to the Sneetches, until the Sneetches are completely confused about what type of Sneetch anyone is or was, as well as being completely out of money. At which point the salesman packs up and heads off to find some other people to scam.

142 Portland Antifa is getting some backlash. Now that the "protests" are at police locations around Portland, rather than downtown at the courthouse, Antifa is increasingly trashing local neighborhoods.

Last night, Antifa grabbed outside tables from a prominent local black-owned restaurant and other restaurants to use as barricades, and set some wooden barriers on fire that were intended to allow more outside dining on a local street.

A guy yelled that he was trying to get some sleep as the noisy riot passed his apartment at 1 AM, and the rioters stopped, and threatened to burn his apartment building down.

One Antifaoid yelled at the guy:

"you've really internalized capitalism if you're more worried about getting a good night's sleep so you can f*cking work".

Apparently, under socialism, people won't have to get up in the morning to get to work

To indicate their great concern for the criticism, Antifa is returning to the neighborhood again this evening.

It's just small enough to be a city with a Shinkansen terminus and big enough be a 24 hour party town.

Yes, the formerly Daiei Hawks, now SoftBank Hawks PayPay Dome is impressive. It's build on reclaimed bay land - which is just fun as hell

238 Remain somewhat stunned at the number of people wearing masks outside, at a beautiful windy location right on the ocean. Easily more than 50% of the people.

While there's no "science" or experience indicating any efficacy to anything but actual properly fitted and worn respirators in preventing transmission of laboratory-confirmed viral infection (them there are the fancy words used in actual studies), it is ludicrous to even consider masks outdoors in windy areas with few people around.

Not impressive.

240 Insom,
I have some advice for you. I try not to give advice but I think this will ring true.

You have an active mind and a job that requires mental activity. You are out of balance. What you need is mindless physical activity. I'd suggest breaking rocks but too much like prison. A lot of things probably can't be done where you live like splitting firewood, busting up ground with a pickaxe or diggng big holes and filling them up. Gyms are too artifical.

But some sort of mindless physical activity will put your mind in neutral. You could buy 10 sacks of concrete, unload them, then stack them somewhere else. Or two five gallon containers that you fill with water, take inside and empty. Give it a try.

Saw a report linked at Jordan Schachtel's page, conservative estimates put eventual US deaths caused by the COVID *response* (lockdowns, shuttering businesses, kicking the sick out of hospitals etc.) at 81.5K. Suicides, alcohol and drug related deaths, deaths from the cancelling of "elective" (many were not) surgeries, deaths from undetected cancers and other fatal diseases, from lack of proper care for the elderly, the disabled, the infirm.

It will be much higher. You can't estimate how many will die as a result of the response when the response is ongoing and has no end in sight.

But these people don't give one single shit. "If it saves one COVID life, it's worth it." (spit)

300 Two Weeks - yes, if anything, you greatly understate the scandal of the CDC just pretty much making s**t up about masks. Their online journal published a meta-study - in MAY - once again finding no measurable significant benefit.

The UK equivalent of the CDC just did a meta-study, I think with the same conclusions.

But I'll add that the only thing I've cared about since late April to mid-May was the actually key point: this is not an apocalyptic epidemic, the fatality rate will in the end be similar to a bad flu season, and possibly not even as bad as 1957 or 1968. Well, there's another key point: apart from sheltering any particularly vulnerable cohorts, there's either no point at all to "mitigation", or, the costs thereof equal/outweigh the benefits. Just as standard doctrine of all public health outfits on earth have said for decades.

I was going with "Neil"'s but just calling them Karens feels more right.

When the male Karen threw me out of the store, I kind of automatically said "OK, Karen. You just lost a regular longtime customer."

It felt right and it really pissed him off, so I guess I'm sticking with it.

--Anglo-Saxon, to be precise, but they worshipped Norse gods.

--and this ship itself in its integrity is no more: the acidic soil at Sutton Hoo dissolved it, so what was left was essentially a mold. Really fascinating.

I saw Mystic Britain tonight and it sparked my curiosity.

no and in fact, someone on twitter made the excellent point that by forcing EVERYONE to do the same mitigation, we are harming the most vulnerable.

by NOT focusing just on them, we are in fact hurting them, not helping the healthy at all either, AND harming people who end up with cancer or other problems related to lockdowns.

this entire thing is a travesty and I can't believe it's still going on. it's INSANE.

I think that going straight to the store manager and requesting a signed and dated letter from them on company stationery explaining that store policy requires mask wearing even when a customer has explained the presence of a potentially debilitating medical condition that can reasonably be expected to be exacerbated by the store's mask requirement.

Then ask for two copies, one for your records, and one for the lawyer who will be filing the lawsuit!

"We want to play" is trending on Twitter and a lot of players have posted.

Trevor makes some good points. He says most players will be less likely to contract the WooHoo by playing than by being at home. I think that's probably true.

I just read some more about the situation. Apparently, the Big Ten is lobbying the other conferences to adopt a uniform position of not playing. If B1G doesn't play, then reports are that the PAC 12 won't either. Other conferences' positions are unknown, but as of now the SEC is still saying they'll play.

If B1G doesn't play, then reports are that the PAC 12 won't either. Other conferences' positions are unknown, but as of now the SEC is still saying they'll play.

Its weirder than that.

The 'vaccine' they are pushing is not a normal vaccine. Its a new type that will geneticaly engineer you immune system.

really scary stuff. Untested in any large way. No vaccine EVER has been approved using this method.

Desert Storm, we were given Vaccines that we had to sign a waiver for. If we did not sign? We could not deploy. Which means any chance of a Career? over.

30% of Desert Strom Vets have been diagnosed with an unexplained malady. Where at times they get 'cronic fatigue syndrome'.

Those are the DIAGNOSED cases.... there are many of us who, for our own reasons, are not in the VA system.

Note, Iraqi's? who were in the same environment? Don't have this syndrome.

It's about keeping them amateurs and not a semi-pro league, which would destroy college football and football in general like it did to basketball. Also, the snowball effect of having to compensate every athlete even the women's sports. It's a nightmare.
Talk is calling their bluff and putting walk ons out there and players who want to play, play. Tell the crybabies to go pound sand and create their own semi pro league, which will suck and fail, plus the players out of high school will have zero structure and fuck up.

418 Anna I came across what was, to me, a very funny bit of humor from WWI Germany, about the High Seas Fleet. Thought you might be interested.

The Fleet was an enthusiasm of the Kaiser and a few others, but always had lots of skeptics who wondered about pouring up to 1/3 of Germany's military budget into a fleet considered unlikely to be able to challenge the Royal Navy's supremacy (for various reasons).

Anyway, for much of WWI, the fleet sat at home or ventured only out into the Baltic etc., did not see much or any action at all.

So some wags came up with a play on the refrain from the then-reigning popular war song/de facto war anthem, Die Wacht am Rhein (Watch on the Rhine).

The actual lyrics:

Lieb Vaterland mach ruhig sein,
Fest steht und treu die Wacht, die Wacht am Rhein

(Dear Fatherland rest easy - The watch on the Rhine stands strong and true)

The version mocking the inactive Fleet:

Lieb Vaterland mach ruhig sein,
Die Flotte schlaft in Hafen ein

(Dear Fatherland rest easy - The Fleet sleeps in the harbor)

423 HCQ plus zinc works. Best friend's dad was taken off of Oxygen today. I found out another friend of mine entire family got it, and he had it the worst. Super healthy lifts weights and runs 5 miles a day since college. It took him 2 months to get over it. He felt like he was drowning and struggled to breathe every breath. HCQ and zinc saved him. Several of my friends I grew up with had it. It effects the men worse than their wives by far. My cousins have had 2 of their best friend's dads pass away very recently.

HCQ (or green tea extract) plus zinc daily early and often prevents it. We don't need a damn vaccine and 3000 dollar new drugs that don't work.

456 This whole concept of "waves" with C19 is interesting. Generally there's only one actual wave, which follows the Gompertz curve (C19 is doing so - surprise! - almost everywhere). May be several wheels turning in this. I think that, despite the often horrible quality/integrity of the data on this epidemic, there is so much of this data, compared to any other viral respiratory epidemic ever studied, that actual epidemiologists may gain new insights into the progression of such things, and the "wave" idea.

(for example, in the US, we've done more testing in a weekend than is done for an entire flu season - because flu tests are only for symptomatic people presenting for treatment)

If you step back far enough, in most places there appears only one "wave" here, as per normal. It starts at different times, but generally follows the usual pattern.

Big question will be whether "mitigation" actually achieves material delay in community spread. Evidence so far not looking good - but this analysis is bedeviled by more than just often poor data. One key issue: *when* was the pathogen actually introduced to a given population?

ZPac is for secondary infections. The HCQ has a molecule that binds with the zinc ion allowing the zinc to penetrate the cell membrane. Zinc impedes and slows down RNA virus replication. Hence, the 50 plus studies on HCQ with zinc were successful while the dozen or so studies with just HCQ were not.

Dealing with this, you have to look and act on a county by county basis and work outward to regions. One size fits all won't work in America. One county/region of a state can become a hot zone while the rest of the state is not. Right now highway 301 from Jacksonville to Savannah is a red hot zone (I assume bathrooms not being cleaned).

Point is one county and region can have a wave while literally the next county over will not then the next county over can have a wave while the county that experienced the wave first learned lessons and doesn't experience it again. I'm living that scenario right now.

You get wave behavior with infections when there is a significant seasonal component to infectivity. Flu and colds do this. In some of the simple equations, you show the resulting infection curves will have a frequency twice that seasonal variation frequency (it's the non-linear nature of it).

Now, couple that with mutation of the viruses causing the disease, and you get a steady state sort of wave behavior for the disease. Generally, two peaks per year.

494 Maskhole, saying the same thing, but from the 10,000 foot level. Absolutely, regionality is a thing. Many of the smarter independent observers (the only ones who seem worth reading, apart perhaps from Swedish public health types, active and retired) are quite confident the Hope-Simpson theory of regional seasonality (based on latitude) explains most of the different timing.

In any case, you are correct - different areas go through the curve starting at different times, and with different magnitudes.

497 Made another step forward with the Panhard today. Shortened up the jacket of the speedometer cable, so that the core could better engage the socket in the speedo drive spindle, and, Woo-Hoo! the speedometer works. Got 'er up to 30 mph on the dirt road.

The butyl caulk for the rear window glass is slowly setting up, and shrinking a bit as it does so. I will give it a few more days, and apply another layer.

And I am stymied by a silly thing. I don't know what kind of oil to use in the transaxle. What is in there now is some gray goop that smells like gear lube. It has a dipstick, so it's easy to check. The workshop manual (direct from Panhard et Levassor) is silent about the type of oil, but it takes something like 1.605 pints of whatever it is. Three decimal places FTW! Really. My best guess is that takes GL1 or equivalent. The final drive is by spiral bevel gears, not hypoid gears, and I don't think spiral bevel gears require an EP additive. EP additives are supposedly hard on brass synchro rings.

And I got my weed-whacker fixed. It was minor; the nut holding the trimmer head to the spindle had come loose. Tightened it back up, and away I went. Got a fir bit done, too.

Also, my mom and 3 of her friends had a minor case of polio and never had a cold in their lives. She told me this when I read from a couple of sources that people who have had polio or the oral vaccine seem to be immune to COVID-19.

The railroad across Lake Ponchartrain into New Orleans was derailed after Katrina. It was thought that it would take years to replace it. Yet, the railroad discovered that the track was still all attached, so all it took was to have a large forklift lift up a section, then another one next to it lift up another section, then another one lift another section, and the whole stretch of track was put back onto the original piling (for the most part). Done in weeks, rather than years.

518 507 Early on in this COVID clusterf$ck,

A doctor in NYC was boasting a treatment regime that consisted of...

1. IV hydration

2. hydroxychloroquine

3. Zinc oxide

4. Antipyretics (I.V Tylenol in some cases)....yes you can do that.

End result was cessation of symptoms within 8 hours in most cases


MSM crushed that shit next day.....

Posted by: Nightwatch just at August 10, 2020 01:45 AM (u1WYs)

Yep.
A few weeks ago, I had 8 out of 10 symptoms. I started losing smell and taste that morning. My mouth and lips felt like it had a lose dose of topical Novocaine apples. That evening I was running a 100.1 fever. I hydrated, took aspirin and Tylenol, tripled the dosage of zinc/Vitamin C/Vitamin D/Selenium/, I drank a shit load of water, several vitamins I take already had green tea extract. I felt like shit that night and it was weird.
The next day no fever, smell and taste began to return, and the day after that I was good except for fatigue. I didn't get tested because the fever didn't come back.
I marked it down as a strange cold.

530 It was the most recent quake of any size - '94? Rodney King was '92, right?

Anyway, my impression is that Jim is absolutely right, and having grown up around it, it's how I recall it (that is, how good Caltrans was in years past).

I recall delegations from public works agencies the world over would come to CA to study how Caltrans did things.

And I very clearly personally remember going back east, and being shocked by the Third World public works agency style. They would do road work *in the middle of the day*, or *rush hour* (years later, they went to the Caltrans standard, work in the middle of the night). Totally oblivious. And often the infrastructure quality (even allowing for weather/weathering wear & tear) was pretty poor.

Many things that are now mediocre or worse in CA were outstanding in the 60s/70s, world-leading. Having lived in both realities, it's still shocking and infuriating.

550 I watched an interesting documentary tonite* on Netflix -- Sad Hill Unearthed.

*tonite is a far superior spelling than tonight, as an aside*

It's about a group of people that decided to resurrect the 'cemetery' from the final scene of The Good The Bad And The Ugly. Yes, it was a prop, to my totes amazement.

It was originally built by 1,000 Spanish soldiers, on orders from Franco, along with other set pieces from the movie. They also served as extras in the filming.

Surprise narration was provided in part by James Hetfield from Metallica, who also funded (I think) some of the restoration efforts.

1970s California Roads were vastly superior to Texas Highways, as I drove them both in the era.

Back then, the typical CA "Cloverleaf" was a very standardized installation, Statewide. You knew who had the right of way in such an exchange, from Eureka to San Ysidro and all points in between.

CA Driver Ed was awesome then, too. Every High School Brat learned the Merge, four way stop, and all other Rules of the Road. Bigly.

And CA road maintenance was beyond compare. Every foot of blacktop, a magic carpet of smooth tarmac, mile upon mile.

And the concrete freeways had the rain grooves, but you never bounced upon expansion joint upon joint upon joint, forever.

I left CA in '76. By time my Mom died in '78, it was already showing a decline.

Later visits through '95?

It's fate was sealed, and I was no longer a Native Son, but a Visitor at best, and an Alien were truth to have been known.

Appoint me God of California, and my Blowtorch of Fate will draw even the admiration of AtC's Ravage.

This, I promise.

West Coast...out of San Diego...and a long ride out (24 hours) off the coast..there are sea mounts where you can find the "Big Eyes" and "Blue Fin" Tuna....not like the 1950's where they came close in shore less than an hour's ride out of harbor.

Mt. Rushmore, of course. I loved the Badlands. Did a little gold panning in the hills. Climber a sacred butte too. Wall Drug, if you are into touristy stuff. Did a day in Deadwood.

Well in the rushmore area you can easily do the crazy horse monument, head down to custer, then hit the iron mountain road/needles highway which brings you right to rushmore. You can do all that in a day, because you are basically circling around the mountain. Break it into 2 days and you can see deadwood, which you pretty much go through on the trek to rushmore, and you can spend time at pactola lake which is also on the way to rushmore. We actually have done all of that in one day, but it didn't give us too much time to hang anywhere too long, so 2 days gives you plenty of hang time. Take another day and head into Wyoming and see devil's tower, and thats not that all that far from where you would be anyway. Devil's tower was only like an hour ride from where we stayed in S dakota when we did sturgis, so its easily doable. Its a must see. Well those are some ideas anyway.

Berserker, I skipped the Crazy Horse thing, but did visit Little Big Horn -- Not all that interesting either, as without detailed studies of the topography at the time, it was just some prairie grass covered hills and a few signs. Quite disappointing imho. Though I blame me for that.

Simon Property Group Inc., the biggest mall owner in the U.S., has been in talks with Amazon.com Inc. to turn some of its anchor department-store spaces into Amazon fulfillment centers, according to people familiar with the matter.


For Amazon, more fulfillment centers near residential areas would speed up the crucial last mile of delivery. For Simon, turning over what was once prime mall space to fulfillment centers shows it would be willing to relinquish an essential way to bring in more mall traffic to secure a steady tenant.

In a lengthy thread on Twitter, Johnson denied Blumenthal's claims that he received documents relating to Joe Biden and his son's activities in Ukraine from the son of a former Soviet intelligence agent and blasted the Connecticut Democrat for his "twisting of classified briefings and repeating of false news reports."



Basically he called Blumenthal a liar. Well what did expect, he's a Democrat.

Those lightweight revolvers are not a good choice for 29 year olds with arthritis. Even though it's only .38 special, that light frame on most of them is not good for recoil management.

I have a Ruger GP101 that is nice and hefty and I shoot it well, but wearing it on my hip feels like I have a brick there because it weighs so much.

My EDC is a Sig P365. I bought the Springfield Hellcat but I have not shot it enough to be comfortable carry it all of the time. It has the best sights I have encountered on a small carry gun though, so it will become my EDC soon.

I didn't have a problem getting the ammo. Took about a week to deliver. The range we go to has many different calibers to try, but right now only has .22 ammo. So I bought some 9. If I can find something comfortable in my hand that would be nice. Then to try and purchase them.
