This time, it won't be the roaring twenties, maybe it will be the snoring twenties or the snowing twenties (depend on the weather).

What do you think?
A question worthy of consideration. The scholarly analysis crews of the Dungeon will take it under advisement. Of course, such considerations must be subordinated to the objectives of the current Dungeon walkout. Be assured that at the earliest possible moment after conclusion of the walkout, we will convene a Summary Plenipotentiary Tribunal for adjudicating this question.

Of course, certain Dungeon members, currently partying surreptiously in the current Lagoon Blowout, may be available for preliminary discussion of this important topic.

INPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUE

Listen up, 10-Ringers! We have an intriguing pending issue.

Some Penthouse types have asked to participate in the current Dungeon walkout. They have an idea that "this is where the action is!" (or something comparable; the handwriting takes some effort to decipher.) This sounds good to us, but we now have a "qualification" issue.

We have set a prerequisite to Penthouse participation in our Dungeon job action: Penthouse applicants must fire a full box of 50 .45acp rounds at the underground range. Fair enough, you may say, but here's the catch: We have specified that the next .45acp round cannot be fired until the previous bullet has reached the target. Sort of our way of testing the Penthouse type's patience. Do you think that this extended task may constitute too onerous a requirement to be reasonable?

Edited to add: We are NOT imposing any sobriety requirement for Penthouse participation in our walkout. We think this a generous gesture on our part.

Can I sustitute the 45acp with the 9x25Dillon...I just finished loading up 550 of these little speed demons! Of course double hearing protection will help with the thunderous crack and blast wave...

Such substitution is NOT approved. The fifty .45acp rounds make the test one of patience and endurance. If you want to be part of the walkout, you must meet OUR standards.

No doubt, yet another reason to own a Glock 29.
  • If a meteorite is about to strike earth, you can shoot it.
  • If a tidal wave sweeps over your state, er, uh, you can shoot it.
  • To hold off roving bands and marauding hordes, merely brandishing the weapon and identifying it as a 10mm is all that is needed.
  • If there is a magnetic pole reversal, maybe you could use your 10mm to shift the Earth's axis. It's complicated, but I've got a really great drawing around here somewhere (it involves a 40 pound return spring, a come along to rack the slide, and a careful aiming of the gun towards the North Star [although, some will argue that aiming at Orion's Belt will give a more efficient azimuth]).

I am pleased to submit this point of order to the Dungeon Rules Committee:

Is it permissible to get a running start when sending rounds down range and thereby increasing the projectiles' velocities by an amount equivalent to my running speed? My calculations estimate an additional 50% average velocity if I wear my best running shoes.

The process would be a follows:

Walk ten paces back from during line.
Point firearm down range
Sprint fast as possible
Release round when at firing line.
Repeat.

Thank you for the rules clarification.

You may be able to enlist the benefits of the 9mm ultra magnum shock wave in the effort to satisfy the aforementioned test while technically meeting the guidelines.

Note the following process.

Required equipment:
One firearm chambered in 45 auto
One firearm chambered in 9x25 Dillon
Fifty rounds for each.

Double hearing protection as mentioned above.

Step 1: send a 45 round.
Step 2: immediately following, send a dillon round
Step 3: observe as the shock wave overtakes the 45 bullet and accelerates it to supersonic velocities. The shock wave may cause said bullet to tumble, but experimentation with shock wave harmonics may clean things up somewhat.

Recommendations: one pistol in each hand, with the 9x25 in the strong hand for obvious reasons. Six mag changes will be required for the 45, and three for the 9x25 if a Glock is used. Logistics must be explored.

Whoops: turned to a new page. I did not realize that I had security clearance for such administrative processes. I will await to be contacted by the Dungeon discipline committee.

They told me it was an organic herbal liqueur. Feeling sort of cosmic.

Taterhead, Heck with the 45 in hand, I could send one down range and then just shoot it with the 9x25 Dillon...this will bump it up to a flying donut as the Dillon blows a huge hole thru it!

Donuts anyone!

The Dungeon technical and linguistics entities concur with your judgement. Tater is indeed on a roll! We were so impressed with his posts that we actually interrupted our walkout to consider his proposals.

The Dungeon Administative apparatus has designated Taterhead as a Transitional Associate Peripheral Assistant Intern within the Dungeon hierarchy. We do not bestow this honor lightly; it is harder to become a TAPAI than it is to win a Nobel Peace Prize!
