Aero E, I missed this. Is this another wannabe? The Citabria 7GCBC caught my eye. Few know what a Citabria is, let alone flew one. I had one guy tell my all the precision approaches he shot and how many hours he had in is log book only to find out later he never pushed a throttle or knew what a checklist was. It was all PC MSFS hours but to listen to him, you would have thought he'd been a pro for years. I'll go search for this post....

What do you expect from a 16 year old guys?
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 10:36:22 AM EDT
Isn't this the same guy who (recently) claimed that his daddy dropped a BG with one shot of his issue .45, while his buddy used 2.7 "clips" (do the math, it's hilarious) full of 9mm before the guy dropped? He claimed the .45 will go through "anything" and still keep going. He was replying in response to a ? about the P220 and the P226.

I have the opinion that student pilots should be 18 to solo. Now before some of you get your panties all in a knot, I soloed on my 16th birthday. I was nowhere NEAR responsible enough to act as PIC of an airplane and I haven't met too many 16 yr olds that are. Some of them aren't even responsible enough to drive a car.

Doo Yoo meen this giy??? Oh, he's a genious alright.... ..from Citabria p220 is a .45 , but 9mm sucks anyway. in situations when you may need to kill someone fast. .45 has better stoping power. 9mm just basiclly annoys the person. you have to shoot at least 6 or more shots before the guy stops to think he got hit. on the 9mm. after one .45 the guy is down fast with one maybe 2 shots. My dad is a Houston P.D. and he carries a sig p220 .45 he got into a shoot out with a guy and it took 1 shot to end the situation. his buddy who got into another shoot out months later, used a 9mm. it took 2.5 clips to stop the guy. see the difference. Go with the SIG P220 .45 it is the best. durable too! goes through anything and still shoots! His daddy...and his [b]clips[/b]. 9mm sucks? Whats up with these kids today? [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

ROTFLMAO...Stop - you're killing me! "he carries Sig p220 .45"... WOW!! Gee, we're all real impressed down here!! "goes through anything" even [b]plywood[/b]?! Golly-Double-WOW Wally!! [:O] And it took "2.5 clips" with a 9mm to stop him!! Oh, boy - and it only took that many to finally land one on target?? Gee-Willickers... I usually go through at least 4.37 clips to finally land one center of mass shot! 9mm is "annoying"?? Okay, that's it... who wants to get in line behind me to "annoy" this zit-popping, homeroom-flunking, bed-wetting, voice-still-cracking, son of a Houston "P.D."?

Come on guys, give the little bastard a break, he probably gains all his self worth by thinking that someone here might actually take his comments seriously. Don't make him cry by posting meanie comments about him! Ya never know, he might actually be old enough to buy a gun in 4 years.

let me clear up the missunderstanding. i started when iwas 13, and now i just turned 17. that means i am going to get my liscence this year. sorry for the misunderstanding, i was distracted while i typed that. if you have any good tips when i take my test soon, i am willing to listen. another thing, dont assume i did low end crap. i started at TEXAS TAILDRAGGERS when it was at andrau airport. i was just 13 when i started. what i type was mostly true, but there may have been a miscomunication. at age 16 i did get my solo, and just turned 17. this means i am going to get my liscence soon. so flying w/ friends and family is not what happend. i am being trained still with TEXAS TAILDRAGGERS. only now it is located at AXH. i also have 120+ hours of dual/PIC time. if you dont belive me, fly down to AXH and find out. once again, if there was a misunderstanding, i am very sorry.

I've never flown a plane before. I don't know what a Citabia is. But this thread is hilarious!

I am kinda new around here and I don't know what 7GCBC previous comments/claims have been. I do know however that while teaching students that if asked about their progress they will state as much good about themselves as possible. I've even been guilty of this a few times. I really think that learning to fly is a great thing for us younger people and does teach good judgement and descision making skills. The age for it really depends on the person involved but my general feeling is introducing people to flying at as young of an age as they are ready for it is advantageous.

It's been a few years since I've flown one, but I think it's around 120kts.

http://www.bellanca-championclub.com/ I have flown a Piper J-5 as a student pilot, and in my friend's Aeronca Champ, and then in hos Citabria, they are great planes, slow, his Citabria had inverted fuel and oil and was aerobatic. The J-5 was limited to what it could do but I did Barrel Rolls, loops and spins no problem. As for the kid, hey he has to learn, if he wants to act big, zip it here and do that at Nick site.

Link Posted: 3/4/2002 7:06:50 PM EDT
Hi Citabria, since you have a cool screenname, and you are a future pilot, I just had to stop by to give you some advice. First, don't bullshit a bullshitter. The guys and girls on this board know guns. More than you could imagine. They also apparently know airplanes. Some have over 7000 hours. So bragging about 120 hours of dual received is kinda silly. When you talk smack about either subject, the guys here will delight in ridiculing you. If you genuinely want to learn, and if you ask reasonable questions, the folks here will teach you all they know. They will take you under their wing, so to speak. Also use the spell check. You loose a lot of credibility if you don't. The spell check feature does not work on my computer, so I cut and paste onto CS e-mail to spell check. It's worth the extra 20 seconds. In flying, paying attention to the details helps to keep you alive. Always deal with facts, and never make assumptions when it comes to your flying. 12 friends of mine are not around anymore because they got careless or just plain unlucky. The same advice hold true for shooting. Sorry to lecture, but you will get a lot of knowledge from this board and I would hate to see you get laughed off of it. After all, us pilots and gun-nuts, have to stick together! Lastly, though having a big ego is required to be a good pilot, you also have to be humble, self depreciating, and Always aware of your limitations. Welcome aboard, sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.
