In Topic: Cup less than a week away and I've got a problem...

School administration have no legally have no jurisdiction outside of school sponsored/ related activities. If your parents were to say you were sick all week, no one is to question a parent/ guardians reasoning or involvement. Power hungry teachers have no legal authority to intervene in a given situation as stated. If they do choose to intervene on their own accord, bring up your Student Code of Conduct(regarding excused and unexcused absences) and slam it down into their thick skull. Sorry for such language but the level of school involvement into life outside of school is reaching a breaking point here. As long as your conversation wasn't recorded, who will an administrator believe? A teacher playing tattle tale or the legal parent that has a responsibility for your life? Yep, even if the administration gets wind, there's not much they can do about it(and as long as you have your student code of conduct, not very much legally either). Maybe a talk or something.


In Topic: Should I get DP G4 or DP G5 and why?

AoSpades is bringing up good points, the G3 is a very solid dump valve marker for the price and you shouldn't have any major issues with a PROPERLY maintained one. Honestly I would take his advice. 


In Topic: Nike

As a xc runner, I have seen many a shoe and few can compare to nike when it comes to "beating the shit out of your shoes". So far with the 8ish pairs Ive bought in the past years, they have seen plenty of action without having any issues. Granted, I do plenty of research and usually stick to the lines that have always worked for me. Go into any nike store and they have plenty of random "new" shoes that are unheard of, stay away from those. Recently I have seen a decline in quality because of flywire issues being incorporated into new "faster" shoes. You must remember that nike was founded by Bill Bowerman, and most of the "waffle" designs he thought of have been molded into several lines of shoes. FInding the best of his revolutionary ideas in modern shoes is sometimes hard, but I assure you at least a few people in nike have a good idea of what their doing and have always put out good products.

Thanks for your great responses! I'm going to probably lean 9mm or .22 and have narrowed my sights probably at handguns. I'll probably check back in the next few weeks as I continue research and possibly submit other ideas to the community :)
