A good write up on why the author chose the M&P. I like both.

SayUncle v. Linux

Tried various versions (Eeebuntu and EasyPeasy). Both had issues with internet connectivity and networking. Microsoft wins. Installed Windows 7 on the EeePC 1005. Works great. Battery life slightly diminished and the function keys for sound don’t work. Nor does the touch pad work for resizing. I hear there are fixes for those but I haven’t found them yet.

Death Match: Kel-Tec v. S&W J-Frame

Jay compares them. And here’s a similar comparison I did three years ago.

Death Match: Lenovo 17-inch wide-screen laptop v. 20oz bottle of Aquafina

By a score of $750, Aquafina wins.

Conversely, hats off to IBM repair service. It went like this:

Monday: I call. They tell me a box is on the way
Tuesday: Get box. Ship it
Wednesday: They get box. Call me with damage assessment
Thursday: I should get my laptop back

Excellent service.

Death Match: SayUncle’s left pinkie vs. Two pound sledge hammer – Round 2

Some asked so here’s a pic. Not for squeamish. Despite what some said, no alcohol was involved . . . well, until after.

Death Match: SayUncle’s left pinkie vs. Two pound sledge hammer

Full swing, glanced off of a spike. I’ll let you guess how that went. Let’s just say: You ever seen a hot dog come out of the microwave?

God damn, that hurts.

Update: Hard to type. I have pics but don’t want anyone to lose their lunch. Broke the tip of the bone clean off. Probably lose the nail.

Aimpoint v. EOTech Deathmatch

Arguably, the two most popular holographic sights on the market are the Aimpoint Comp and the EOTech. Here’s the Aimpoint:

Here’s the EOTech:

Price: The EOTech can be had from about $175 (if you get the Bushnell version which lacks some bells and whistles) to $400. The Aimpoint can be had starting at $329 up to $450. The EOTech comes with a mount. With the Aimpoint, plan on dropping another $80 to $150 on a mount. Advantage: EOTech.

Battery life: EOTech from 200 to 1,100 hours. Aimpoint: 12,000 to 50,000 hours. Advantage: Aimpoint.

Ergonomics: The Aimpoint’s controls are twist knobs. The EOTech is push-button friendly. The Aimpoint is more like a rifle scope in feel whereas the EOTech is like a fighter jet targeting system. Advantage: Draw.

Reticle: Aimpoint has a 2 or 4 MOA red dot. The EOTech has a 1 MOA dot inside a 65 MOA circle. The circle can be used for a SWAG of range finding since it’s about the size of a man at 100 yards. Also, the large circle is adequate for close applications. Advantage: EOTech.

Glass Breakage: If you break the glass on your Aimpoint, game over. The EOTech will function when the glass is broken. Advantage: EOTech.

Cowitness: Both will cowitness on an AR-15. Only the Aimpoint will cowitness on an AK, if you use an UltiMAK mount. The EOTech with its built in mount sits too high for cowitnessing on the AK. Advantage, Aimpoint because cowitnessing on an AK is huge.

Night vision compatible, brightness, clarity: both come in night vision models, have brightness controls and are crystal clear. Advantage: Draw.

Environment: The Aimpoint functions at lower temperatures than the EOTech. The Aimpoint is submersible to five meters. The EOTech is supposedly waterproof (not sure how that’s defined). Advantage: Draw.

Flash: The Aimpoint dot can be seen from the other side as it projects a dot from the rear. There is a kill flash made for it. The EOTech does not project a light signature. Advantage: EOTech.

Adjustments: EOTech 0.5 MOA per click. Aimpoint 1 MOA per click. Advantage: EOTech.

By a score of 5 -2 – 3, SayUncle calls it for the EOTech. But it’s a close 5 – 2 -3.

Presidential Endorsement

People have started endorsing their candidates. Mr. and Mrs. Bubba are for Clark. William is for Edwards. Brian is too. Who do I endorse? Glad you ask. I endorse Yellow Dog.

Let’s compare Yellow Dog to other Democrats:
