Maybe mom will give the $$ to fix it.

Hell, otherwise I'll pay a few bucks for it and then get the track bike I want! LOL

Tried it a few times, as expensive as real shooting and I do not have time for 1 more hobby. REAL pistol&rifle shooting and the bike take all my available spare time.

About once or twice a year my shop will go and rent the morning at a paintball place and go crazy. then we'd all go to a bar and get waisted. paintball's tight. I like shooting the guys who just got shot and are walking out of the war zone.

I could never justify this cost over anything else...

I do want to get a few more toys but I can't decide what to get...
