I recently started carrying the "Field Notes" pocket notebook and a pen. I'm having trouble keeping the pen with the notebook, and I'd like to get a notebook cover with a pen loop. I know Field Notes…Continue

Greg S replied to Mongoose's discussion Weight Gain Good or Bad in the group Exercise
"Given that height and weight, the lowest your BF% could possibly be is 17% (184 lb at 5'6" and 17% BF gives an FFMI of 24.9, which is as good as it gets without steroids). At that FFMI you'd look pretty ripped; my guess is that…"

Greg S replied to Mongoose's discussion Weight Gain Good or Bad in the group Exercise
"I'm no expert, but an additional 40 pounds with only an inch gained in the waist tells me that it's mostly muscle. Probably a little fat too, but mostly muscle. Whether it's good or bad is up to you."

Greg S replied to Neil A's discussion Gym advice in the group Exercise
"Thanks Mike! Neil, one other thing: as you make progress and your goals change don't be afraid to change your training environment with them. You can do all the cardio you want at most any commercial gym, but if you want to start moving some…"

Greg S replied to Neil A's discussion Gym advice in the group Exercise
"Neil, What Mike said is excellent information! The biggest question for you is what your specific goal will be. Overall body weight is a popular goal, but there are any number of variables involved that make weight alone a poor measurement of…"

Greg S replied to Neil A's discussion Gym advice in the group Exercise
"What are you trying to do? What's your purpose for being in the gym? What are your goals? What are you training for? You can get by without a goal for a while, but eventually you'll need a direction in which to move and a target to move…"

Greg S replied to Ben's discussion Favorite Handgun in the group Riflemen
"I love my M&P's too. Daily carry is a 9C, although lately I've been carrying the 9L. My 45 full size is fantastic too, but a bit heavier than the 9L; it's mostly a range gun. The only thing I don't like about the M&P…"

Greg S replied to Conor's discussion I'm having a hard time in this "relationship" i found myself in.
"I know it's cliché to recommend a book, but I'm going to do it anyway.  Mindful Attraction Plan by Athol Kay is basically everything JB said, but with more detail (obviously). I highly recommend it, changed my life! "

Greg S replied to Mongoose's discussion Question on Gun Sales Data
"It depends on where you are. Whenever you purchase a firearm you're dealing with two sets of laws, Federal and State. On the Federal level, background checks for sales between private individuals are not required at all, at gun shows or…"

Greg S replied to Mongoose's discussion Question on Gun Sales Data
"Indeed. The reason there hasn't been a reliable, in-depth study is because it's functionally impossible, from a logistics perspective. Gun shops are required to keep records on all firearm transactions, and they're required to share…"

Greg S replied to Mongoose's discussion Question on Gun Sales Data
"Speaking as a guy who worked at a gun shop until recently: The only way to 'track' gun sales across the country is by total numbers of FICS (background) checks done. Using that number can be misleading, as a background check performed…"

"Ruger's SR1911 is a good quality gun for around $700, and it's stainless steel too."

Greg S replied to Sir's discussion Sanding over where the paint stopped
"Wait...   How do you not know the grit of the sandpaper you're using? It should be printed on the back. If it's 'pretty rough' and not working it's likely loaded up with paint dust, time for a new piece. Sandpaper is…"

Greg S replied to Greg S's discussion An interesting problem with my deadlift in the group Exercise
"I tried using a narrower stance and narrower gripgrip at the yesterday, thereby dropping the height of the bar at lockout. It now lifts my balls instead of going over them, which is an improvement I guess?"
