Anyone here know of NGS?

It is when you really want this new gun. You rent one to shoot it side by side with your current gun and suddenly you are shooting like a master. Then you have to buy one and you do. You then take them both to the range and you are shooting exactly the same as your old gun.

If its going to make you feel better, this also happens with golf clubs, tennis racquets, bows, etc. Basicly any tool that we obsess about and is inherently more accurate than we are.

I do that with guitars. Pick one up at the store and about thirty new songs just start coming out of it. Take it home, meh

I think they switch them in the back or something.

Same here.

I've even taken a floor model home that played beautifully in the store, and as soon as I get it home, the strings start buzzing and the action magically goes 3 inches above the fretboard.

I even had that happen with a Taylor.

I have a beautiful Fender TC90 Thinline with the cherry finish and smoked chrome. Played it at the store and it just Sang, put it on layaway, picked it up a month later, I totally different sound. If the serials hadn't matched I would have thought it was something else.

After a little work on it though it sounds sweet, and practically will play itself. :twisted:

I know this feeling.
Dan H was kind enough to meet me for a range session with the tricked out XD. Trigger job, better sights, new guid rod and spring. He's a much better shot with that than I am with my XD.

So I gave it a try.

I didn't shoot any better, but I still want one :D

Enjoyed it!

Did you decide on the trigger yet? You know you want it!

Yeah, I know I want it. I'm just shure if I should get it yet. I think a 4lb trigger is way to light for me to carry. I'm probably going to order the drop in kit, it should smooth things out and I can play with the springs a little to keep the weight up.

I'm still not sure it's a good idea to mess with that in a carry gun though. I've read a lot of arguments on both sides of the (legal issue) story, but I'm not convinced either way.

Guns? Yea...been there, done that.

Guitars? Doesn't bother me because I almost always modify mine anyway. Never met a "stock" guitar I liked.



This one was close, but I still had to tweak the action and I need to get a locking nut for the head...I'm abusive on string bending. Still thinking of adding an EMG 85 in the bridge position.
