Played Destiny beta on PS4 and XB1... somewhat prefer the XB1 controller, so you can guess what I'm getting Destiny on.

As far as console wars, I said screw it and just got both consoles, granted, I know not everyone can do that.

And as far as being to old to play games... I say never, although, I am expecting a child soon, but I'll figure out a way to make it work! As the saying goes, where there is a will, there is a way, right?

Was going to get a PS4 with the Destiny bundle, but a friend of mine fell into financial trouble. He's selling off some stuff and offered me his mint restored German Kar98k rifle with a couple hundred rounds of 8mm Mauser for $400. So..... I'm going to do that instead of a PS4.

Luckily Destiny is cross platform, so if I get it, it'll be X1, so it's really a win-win.

Actually, I can't stand offset sticks for that very reason. Although I started analogs with PS1 and PS2, both the N64 and Dreamcast had them aligned properly and gave a significantly better feeling of control. If the Dreamcast controller had a second analog stick, it'd probably be my favorite controller of all time. I absolutely loved mine!

Oh I know, I've shot it a number of times. Always wanted one, but never saw one as nice as his. He fully cleaned and restored every piece and it's smoother than my 2 year old Remington 700. The thing is just butter. Oh, and a piece of history. And the ammo is dirt cheap.

Dreamcast will always have a special place in my heart. I'm just glad mine still works.

That sounds beautiful - although where do you get ammo? Everywhere I look, 8mm Mauser is almost .50 cents a round

I suppose that is an argument for reloading my own

We used to split 900 round surplus packs from some rinkety online retailer. Looks like those have dried up (haven't got ammo for it in years). Oh well. At least I have a pile to start with and can source out other options in the meantime. At least it's purely recreational.

rinkety online retailer <--- lol

Good point. Thats why I like having all my guns in either 9mm, .223, or .22

I only need to cash 3 types of common ammo :P

I would say just rebarrel the gun, but since it is such an old gun, with history, to me it would be worth it to preserve.

I've already got 9mm, 45, 223, 308, and 12ga. I sold my only 22lr when ammo was impossible to find and to cut down on calibers..... but now I guess I'm getting another!

Semi-back-on-topic, the unscoped Kar98k was my weapon of choice back in the days of Call of Duty 2. :P

I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE

It was mine too, along with the MP-40. That thing was a 1 hit, 1 kill gun...so OP

I just wish all ammo was as cheap as .22. I could be at the range every weekend at that rate. I am a cheap bastard and don't want to pay over .40 ct/rd for any ammo
