I run Adblock Plus and Noscript, so my main issue is giving a site back enough bits of itself that it works all rather than getting ads.

Went to the range with my buddy last week, I have to say my bad luck streak with older Rugers is still running strong, as my P944 doublefeeds 2x a mag minimum on everything that isn't +P; I'm going to try to trade it for a .22 pistol so I can get more rounds downrange to keep working on fundamentals. My grip isn't so bad anymore, as lifting weights has really done wonders to get my dominant pinky and ring finger back almost to normal; there was a noticeable difference between last week and when I shot in July, in grip stability/strength. Am looking forward to getting all my guns back, so I can shoot something besides beaters and carry pistols for once

Blame Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed Odyssey for my lack of activity.

It's way too over-complicated for me. Rockstar fucked up with the "cores" and all that unnecessary crap. RDR 1 did fine with just stamina and health bars and there was absolutely no reason to complicate it any further. Then I got a bounty just for accidentally bumping into someone while casually strolling through town and later bumping into a tree killed my horse, at which point I said "screw this" and went back to Assassin's Creed.

The fact that Rockstar has been infected by the "[insert title] Online" bug and seemingly has no desire to make DLC story expansions like Episodes from Liberty City and Undead Nightmare anymore only exacerbates things for me.

Ok, I'll admit, I hate the cores part and how every time I need to shoot a follow up shot, tapping the trigger again cocks the hammer and it actually throws off my aim.

I hate how every time I run into a tree, I get thrown off my horse.

I feel that enemies can be a bit too spongy when it comes to certain guns.

This, oddly enough, doesn't bother me at all. It was a bit jarring at first, but once I got accustomed to it, it became second nature.

I got used to it later on, but having shot real guns of these types, it was weird for the trigger button to both meaning shoot and work the action.
