Larry, Gawd Damn Right, Old Reliable......Seems he was back and is now gone.

Dude certainly has a way about him but there is no denying he knows the practical use of a rifle not just the known distance play crap I do.

I think he has earned his right to his arrogance. Fully understand how his way can certainly throw sand into a vagina but with a step back, moment of thought, you kind of understand wait a minute this makes sense - Hint.

I guess he can turn a thread into a shit show but the thing to do is ignore your own butt hurt, take in the knowledge, and carry on civilly with the people around him. Kind of feel we are going down the road of the snowflakes/window lickers by shutting him up.

I got a kick out of his posting in the "Will this nick in my crown ruin my barrel" threads to show one of his sawzall shortened picasso pieces laying on a ton of dead meat.

Oh well.

Sure, there are socially acceptable lines (not the PC crap) that I think should be adhered to, however, seems he mostly gets riled up when people are guessing and he has his data from shooting stuff. Folks get banned for being too...harsh...arrogant...rude. But nobody gets banned for spewing crap that they have no way to verify. Seems more people get in the ringer for replying to trollish posts than those who, knowingly or not, put out the bait.

Some fucks just can't stand the truth. Sad the place used to be about Truth, Justice and the American way. Now it's about I wear a scare coat, only I know this shit, or you can't talk to me like that. It's worse than snowflakes, I call it the buzzard logic. Fly in shit all over everything/everybody you don't agree with, then just do what buzzards do. Be you this nations symbol bird, or a run of the mill buzzard. Take your choice we have both.

His kind of purposeful fuckery is what I expect from teenagers, good riddance. Most of us have seen his routine before, and chose to ignore it, but that hardly excuses being a prick for no reason to strangers.

Larry had a lot of knowledge to share. His post never bothered me . Just think he went bout sharing that knowledge the wrong way. I enjoyed his bluntness but I can see how it was a mods nightmare with the butt hurt people.

"Truth, Justice and the American way" doesn't equate to being a purposeful prick to strangers, but apparently that's not how some learned it. Carry on with the rationalizations.

The "hint" shit is about the most annoying fucking thing I encounter on here after the inevitable dead horse subjects being reposted for the tenth time or more. The hurt feelings and thin skin are sickening but take one of your own "hints" and quit being so arrogant and communicate like a normal person, not in code.

Larry has a lot to share and has a lot of pragmatic knowledge. There isn't much he hasn't shot or done with a rifle.

Yes he has a direct approach that some don't like but If you read through his language, there is always some good information to be had.

Guess he got it again...too bad IMHO

The typical Hider, myself included, is the Bounty Hunter.

When it comes to been there done that with the rifle Larry is the other guy in this video......

https://youtu.be/aCsOig_uLio

Id take Larrys rifle knowledge over APintofGuinness water carrying for liberal causes and claiming his girlfriend shoots cloverleafs at 300 any day....and I dont advocate banning Pint either its fun to humor the feeble minded.

Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. You may not like it when an alpha wolf like Larry pees all in your face but you might as well learn what you can from his technique. Admire that cock and balls as it squirts a hot stream right down your throat.

I want to see some more of those friggen fish pictures.

Fucker fishes with Grizzlies. Wouldnt it be nice when the next "Im going to bear country what should I carry?" thread comes up he is around to answer?

Of course when he does some guy that has never left Maryland will challenge him and in the process we will see Larry at his finest.

pmclaine, your homo-erotic fantasies aside, there's a lot of guys with far more experience than Larry who don't go out of their to be a jerk, and actually attempt to HELP those coming to the forum for info. Fishing with Grizzlies doesn't impress me, treating people with respect does.

Yes my defense of Larry may be a little pictorial.

I had a co worker that ran a Wolf-Hybrid rescue. Im still waiting for the notice that he has gone missing and was found by DNA match in some dry wolf turds. I dont know if its accepted wolf care practice but he says he did on occasion take a piss on a wolf to show it who was boss. Id imagine that works once or twice until you get a crotch full of snarling wolf.

It takes all types of teaching methods to get a point across. Larrys was just one method.

When he first reappeared I was like "who the fuck is THIS fuckin guy" and made a wiseass response when he started in on me. Then I searched his other 300 posts in his 7 days and remembered who he was and said to myself "ah, he's THAT fuckin guy, and he probably does know at least most of what he's spouting"

The only "issue" I had, and would have with any member regardless of their demeanor, is that if you have that much knowledge then why make it a point to come here and actively choose NOT to share such knowledge. Amongst us more seasoned members we get the whole "if I have to explain it you wouldn't understand" thing, but there were a lot of newer members in some of those threads who were conducting themselves exactly how we'd like them to. They were asking legitimate questions based on their experience level and actively listening and processing responses. It's not in the forum's benefit for those guys to get actively shit on and belittled. That's what produced the "no attacking new members" policy from the old days.

I can happily look at amazing game and fish pictures featuring rifles that shoot great and look ugly. But it kind of reminded me of some instructors that any of us can remember who clearly had amazing knowledge in their field but couldn't convey it properly.

i don't know what got him ejected this time, but I really hope it wasn't simply hurt feelings.


That "barrel break in video" he did years ago still cracks me up.

No, never learned it that way, but taught it by thin skin types who think the world is supposed to be all roses an buttercups. You patron a place where the theme is playing real tag in the real world yet your feelings get hurt by just a guy saying words? How much richer can it get?

Gunfighter, your mancrush is duly noted, thanks for the display.
Always ready to turn up the thermostat for snowflake's, welcome!
If the worst thing in life is getting butt hurt on the net by not knowing when to not post or dig your hole deeper, the cost of trauma/couch care would drop nation wide saving those who have a grip on reality much.

A douche bag is a douche bag, regardless of his or her knowledge. With the ignore function, it is easy to ignore these douche bags. Unfortunately, any wisdom that said douche bag might be able to impart is lost in the flow of his douche baggery. Regardless of anythink else that "Larry" brought to the party- and regardless of screen name used- he is a douche bag and easily ignored. If you like him and want him back, maybe you can petition the mods to unban him. I'm not going to say I'm glad he is one, but I won't throw a party if he returns either.

It's funny how the ones who are whining about snowflakes are the ones who whine. Constantly. You want thick skinned stoicism... try showing some.

Let me assist: if you're unhappy with how the forums are moderated, leave.

"But but then where can i go for my virtual echo chamber of narrow mindedness and archaic notions of masculinity and illogically derived conclusions?"

I hear you cry.

Hint.

I recently posted up looking for info on 22lr ammo since I just purchased my first 22. Basically looking for suggestions and first hand knowledge on what's given ppl good results. I didn't want to know what was 100% gonna shoot good out of the rifle I purchased, that would be ridiculous. He hopped in and inundated the thread with useless crap and constant pictures. I come here for information and even met one of my best friends here, not to get lectured.

At the supersonic rate he was posting I was sure Larry was here for a good time not a long time. I feel he is an asset to the site. Yeah sometimes one had to read between the lines, or stop and ponder a bit but is that actually a bad thing? Stop and think about something? Oh hell no! We must have instant knowledge passed to us and in a most cheerful and agreeable manner.
For just a little it seemed more like the Hide of old.......... then here come the thin skinned snivelers" oh, he hurt my feelers".......sign of the times? EOR.

There's no amount of abuse that's worth the slim contribution that he was making. He shit in Stag's thread, as he did in others, and signal-to-noise ratio apparently became a factor. I get the idea that the "wisdom of the ancients" doesn't come cheaply, but not at the price of free license to try and shit all over someone else's dignity. Wanna do that? Do it in a Cabela's or some other likely spot until you make that magic connection and wind up needing maxillofacial surgery. Shooting sports need to grow, and Frank doesn't need the grief of others pointing at us and saying "see, I told you so."

Is this the same "Larry" that is always getting banned at 24 Hour Campfire? If so, I swear that guy is becoming the new "gunkid". Remember him!? A legend in their own minds.

Anyways, I find this thread kind of funny. I think it's safe to say the majority of the members here including the owner have military service under their belts. However, there's still folks that can't grasp the concept of discipline and respect when posting here. This site is privately owned and NOT run under a democracy where people get voted on or off the island. It's Frank's house and his rules. It don't matter how knowledgeable or talented you are with your shooting practices, if you disregard the rules and walk around like king shit of fuck mountain thinking the rules don't apply to you then you're out. Simple as that. It's not a question of "manning up" or any other fake ass alpha male bullshit, it's a question of respect.

It didn't bother me how he was but I'm an asshole. He's been banned before for the same shit so he should know what he can't get away with talking to people like that on this site. Bottom line it's Frank and the moderators that have to deal with the problems he causes so play by their rules or get the fuck out.

I don't know if he got banned for your thread or not but his answer was spot on. You never know which ammo will shoot best in which rifle.

Im not a big .22 guy but I understand people who are don't only value ammo by make but by lot number. When they find something that works they buy a shit ton of it because the next lot may not work.

Agreed Larry gave you a hard time AFTER the initial correct answer but your follow on can be construed as wishful thinking, lazy, wanting others to do your homework.

I take it as a guy excited about a new rifle looking for a direction to go. No big deal one of my first questions was "Is a Countersniper a good scope?". Not kidding, my local dealer got one in and had it on the shelf.

Gawd Damn should be taken as the crazy uncle in the corner. Shrug off his crazy shit but pay attention when he is having a lucid moment. Usually the lucid moment is the first post and he will continue to help if you ask the right questions.

I imagine it's too late for him though, he knows the controversy he brings, I fully expect he enjoys it and he ain't going to stop. I wonder what he killed today with some sawed off, electrical taped, color palette of a rifle that he gets the most out of with little angst.

I see PintofGuiness showed up. Not surprised he promotes seeing people shut down for conversation. He is as flat as Paul Ryan's pint.

It's great that he has knowledge but I give a good god damn if you're gods greatest gift to earth since Patton; not that hard to have some form of tact.

Some humility can go go a long way.

I'll respond to your comment then leave it alone. This is my first jump into a decent 22lr rifle. I asked a simple question regarding what ammo is yielding the best results. Hey, maybe someone chimes in and says "don't use X brand ammo, it's no good for that setup" or "I've used brand X, Y, Z with positive results" which someone actually did post. That's all I'm looking for so I can narrow my choices, purchase boxes of varying brands, test what works well in my rifle and go from there. That's not lazy, that's trying not to waste money on ammo that someone more familiar with 22lr knows might not be good. I didn't flat out ask "What will 100% work in my rifle". I know my limits and skill level and when I don't know something, I come here to ask more experienced and knowledgeable shooters. Most are very forthcoming and very helpful, some aren't.

If the pussy factor was the main draw, why did you snowflakes register on post here in the first place. Oh I forget, the cool factor of saying "I'm on Sniperhide" any other questions? Take your man pills an STFU about getting all butt hurt. Yea that's right, flag this post like the fags you are!!
lol - there's cool factor to saying "yeah, I'm on Snipershide?" really?

holy shit. It's Sunday lads. Go shuffle one out, get drunk, do something, just lighten up...

PS - I've always suspected that men who keep calling other men 'fags' for obviously non-homo acts are like a submarine sending out a signal, hoping for a 'ping' to come back...

no, it actually doesn't because I'm not a Dem you simpleminded cretin. Just because I find you to be suffering from aggressive and advanced mental retardation doesn't mean anything politically...

I enjoyed my time today. Went to the range, took my time, had some success in pretty tough winds and generally enjoyed the ride to and fro through the NC countryside.

I'm in a happy place, motherfucker.

Or the fan boys who keep showing up in the peanut gallery, hitting the Flag button. If someone gets offended on here (Hide) for any reason they need to step back an look at their life to that point, and make sure they are here for reasons They understand fully. Like anything in life it's easy to B/S the fans, but you'll never B/S a player, no matter the venue.

Larry lives to insult people and post pictures of his stuff like he's a god (who can't even speak coherent English). Across a dozen years and a dozen forums, I have yet to see him provide meaningful information to help inform or advance other people. He's as useless as teets of a boar pig. Good riddance, and if you miss him, perhaps the mods should have eyes on you as well. Head for 24hour campfire if that is your way.
