    None of the Rangers or Seals I've known would ever mention someone ending up bloody. Ever. There's a time and place for that, but they'd just kill you if it came to that. I guess it's the difference between having had to pull the trigger and knowing you're ending another's life vs how macho it seems before you've had to do it.

    Talking up use of force on the web is childish and unbecoming. Even if you claim it wouldn't be coming from you (it's so obvious you're trying to imply it would). "I'm gonna kick your butt" is so, well, 8th grade.

    As for calling the competition and price checking - nothing wrong with that. But doing it on a print that someone else is having you bid for the sole purpose of finding your price is cheesy.

    You don't want to be the cheapest guy in town. That's how you go broke doing crap work you wouldn't really want anyway.

You say I show little respect for anyone, but i see on a daily basis, you guys act all high and mighty and give newbies a hard time, so dont come to me about respect. Your right, I should of said Good Job, you are right, and sorry that I didnt say that, and coming off like an immature punk is not me, and Im sorry for that as well, but if you knew me in person, you would know Im anything but immature, but you dont, and all you got to go off of is one incident, and to me my friend is not right to judge someone's worth over one incident. Im sure if I was to dig into your personal life you would have allot more than one bad incident, but Im not here to judge, nor to hold anything against you, so just drop it. It seems your the most bothered by it, so Im glad you got it out of your system. You take it as a threat to your welding manhood when someone comes on here, and shows or says that they can match or pump out really nice welds, and I get the feeling the little green monster gets the best of some, and things are said. Im not here to make people feel like their welds look like crap, or to rub things in peoples faces, Im not that person, and really you got me all wrong. Im the kinda guy, that would lend out his welding equipment to friends, or take the shirt off his back to help another, not some high school punk with something to prove, so dont label me as such. I really wish you can put all this crap behind us and move on, because it really does disrespect the gent that started this thread to begin with. Im calling it quits with you man, and I will no longer post in this thread, because its going nowhere, and not what I wanted to happen. I consider myself a professional, and as such, I right here, call a truce, and be the first to apologize for any actions that may of insulted or caused disrespect, but know this, I will give you or anyone the same respect you give me, and thats only fair.
      What the **** are you even talking about?

      Don't you dare turn this around on me. I've got no issue giving people their due, which is why I posted in here in the first place. The ENTIRE reason I posted at all in here was because you DIDN'T give the guy his due(which you now admit, bravo). And it's not just you, I see it everywhere, which is why it drives me nuts. Be secure in your skills and don't be afraid to tell someone else they did a terrific job, as opposed to "I could/can/could with practice do that".

      I've never given a newbie a hard time on this forum, so perhaps you've got me confused with someone else? Seriously, there's nothing like throwing a bunch crap against the wall, hoping it sticks, and then saying "peace, I'm out." A truce is only as good as your next post, and your apology won't mean squat if you do the same dumb stuff again. If you really did learn, then that's beyond awesome, and I'll look forward to seeing productive and mature posts in your future.

            Did you know allot of them, because this contradicts what I have experienced. To say everyone whether in uniform with the navy, army, marines, acts all the same is kinda silly. Even though in uniform, everyone is their own individual, and what you describe is the perfect stereotype, and we all know we shouldnt stereotype. Im a Marine with a short fuse, as some of us Marines are, and that is not a bad thing according to Marine Corps standards. I dont play the macho card, and if ever came the time I had to pull a trigger, I wouldnt think twice, and then go have lunch. Macho has nothing to do with the mentality of a killer in the military, just thought Id share that with you.

              Only several dozen over the years. 9 of the 13 cadre in my basic training company were, and the CO was as well. They were all professionals.

              I don't know how what I've said is stereotypical. They're calm and collected people. You on the other hand, even in that last reply brag up being a tough guy. "if ever came the time I had to pull a trigger, I wouldnt think twice, and then go have lunch." Maybe if you had done it, you might not be so flip about it now.

              Honestly, the way you talk makes me think the only Marine Corp in you is having memorized Full Metal Jacket. No wonder you won't leave the house without your sidearm. It's classic little man syndrome.

                So you think its right to bring up crap and attack me personally, because I didnt give a guy his due unintentionally. Which you pretty much did like you said "throwing a bunch of crap against the wall, hoping it sticks". When I proved you wrong on the first accusation, you moved to a second, and a third, trying to get something to stick, and I did eventually take blame in the matter of the quote calling, but the fact that you had to come at me, because you didnt agree with me agreeing with what urch had to say which was right on the money, about that anything can be learned. Im not trying to turn it around on you, but you do hold fault in this as well, and thats is what Im getting at. I really do want to end this, but its gonna take both parties, to come to an agreement here, and I will hold my end of the bargain respectfully. Cheers buddy!

                    That was just my basic training company. That's not including everyone else I served under and have known before and after my time in service.

                    As for Marines, you don't fit the mold either.

                    Justin was a super hyper kid I knew growing up. Couldn't sit still. Couldn't behave to save himself. Constantly getting in trouble and completely devoid of direction. He was 1 or 2 years younger than me and I lost track of him when I graduated HS. I ran into him 4 years later and it was almost shocking to see the man he'd become. Completely focused, very calm, collected, Sharp. Turned out, he joined the corps after HS (probably because his grades were such as to eliminate college as a possibility) and became a cook there. A remarkable transformation.

                    No one I've known in the military has the pvt pyle killer complex you want to assume online. Special Forces or not. None of them puffs their chest as much as you do here.

                        I'd get some better pics and start a new thread

                        It's kind of hard to see much in that picture....one thing I can say, is that typically I'd go up in that situation.

                          He went from a super hyper kid, to a cool calm collective Marine, because the corpsman was slipping ridulin into his MRE's. Sorry I couldnt resist. Not all Marines are created equal, and I apologize for being a supposed chest puffer, for now on, I will depuff my chest and start acting like I joined the Marine Corps full contact basket weaving team. I assume nothing online, this is who I am, whether you want to accept it or not, its not an act of machoism, or an attempt to try to convince myself that Im a man everyday, as you claim, this is me uncut, plain and simple, and Im sorry to burst your bubble, but you never being in the Corps Im sorry to say that you have no clue what a Marine acts like. I can say that you dont fit the mold as a honest, self abiding, love your fellow man, respectful, grown up, united states citizen, out of the 9 of 13 people that Ive encountered in my life, and Im apalled by your childish behavior. I admit, I am cocky at times, but Im from brooklyn, and that I can say stayed with me even after I went into the Corps. Im sorry you dont like who I am, and their will be people in life just like you that will hate people just to hate people, and Im okay with that, but if it bothers you that much, then put all your concerns into the suggestion box, and Pvt Pyles puffer HR department will get back to you shortly. Now can we get back to the thread, or are you gonna come back with a snippy comeback. To be honest, I aint even mad, I just want it to end, so let shake on it, and let it lay.

                            Fron what I can see, it looks good brother, especially if you welded that vertical down. The blue bands around the heat affected zone, tell me that your heat was about right. Keep up the good work!

                              Looks just a little slow on torch movement...to me. Id say you probably have good penetration, and its definitely not bad for vert down.

                              Looks like you werent too bad with the fill rod consistancy, but give that a bit more practice, get a little rythm going.

                              Just keep on burning metal, and working on fill consistancy, experience and time behind the torch are the best teachers.

                                Where did I attack you? Where did you prove me wrong? What did I "throw against the wall?" YOU told me I gave newbies a hard time. Blatantly false. You told me I won't give people their due. Blatantly false. And every point I made about you is pretty well documented in this thread and on this site. In the matter of logic, you fail.

                                If you guys are so dead set on believing that any level of greatness can be learned, prove it. Go lock yourself in a room with a piano for the next 10 years and see if you can become Chopin. Do nothing but put hard work and practice into playing basketball and see if you become the next Jordan. Maybe you could take up writing and write the next great novel Dostoevsky?

                                Not everyone has the same ceiling, THAT'S my point. The majority of people, no matter how hard they practice, won't make welds like that, period. That's why I give him props.
