    New guy here

    I just wanted to introduce myself. I am new to the forum. I dove hard from the age of 13-25 but kids showed up and other hobbies have kept me out of the water. I am starting to get back in and found this forum. The equipment has changed drastically since the last time I was in the water and I am going to need some help. My goal this week is to pick up a good mask, snorkel, fins, etc for a upcoming trip to Jamaica. Thanks for having me.

    Greetings! Lots of good, knowledgeable divers here. Certification are for life but you can take a refresh course in order to get familiar with the new gear and procedures.

    If you have any questions ask away.

    Forget the refresher course!!! Instead take the whole course again. Much better plus you get underwater time with an instructor.

    Scuba review along with a local diving trip will get you back in the saddle.

    I prefer the 280 Ackley........

    I'm with 2506 ackley, but prefer the .25-06 personally

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    I love the 280 Ackley but at the time I built my 2506 I wanted something smaller for Alabama white tails. I am getting 3400 fps with 115 grain bullet.

    I also have a 243 ackley which I use a lot. 3250 fps with a 90 grain accu bond.

    If you could only have 1 it would have to be the 280ai.

    I looked at building a 30-06 ackley but ended up with a 30-338 winchester instead.

    You have found my real passion now.

    So, to get us back to diving, the REAL question of controversy:

    Splits?

    or

    Paddles?
