And there's nothing wrong with Flux Core. I can run a perfect bead with mine with ease.

Do it, they're stronger welds in some cases than MIG.

Do it. Trust me.

I personally found out that if you become good at all positions of stick (flat, overhead, verticle, and so on) and learn how to adjust your machine for each, then all other forms of welding will come easier to you. The only exception is TIG. TIG isnt hard to do, its just a matter of understanding it.

Alright, well my plan is, since I'm not a great welder, is to go pick up this cheap stick welder at Nothern, and start there.

Then Come tax return time, I'll get a nicer one, maybe I can make some money off of it in the future.

I love working and getting my hands dirty, I'll practice until I'm good, I pick up on things quick too, so that'll help.
