Re: Deal alert Remington range bucket 9mm 11.4 cents a round after rebate

I went to Academy in Flower Mound last night to pick up a bucket. The guy behind the gun counter just snickered a bit when I asked if he had any 9mm left and told me that the store had been out since 6am Friday (the previous morning). Went down the street to Dicks. They had a bunch of buckets of 9mm...

Re: Things and Sayings That Annoy!

Having someone, especially a waiter or other service staff member, say "No Problem!" instead of "My pleasure." or "I'm happy to help." or "I'll take care of that." or even "You're welcome." in response to a request. If it was going to be a problem I ...

Re: State Fair - Again

Four of us went to the Fair on Saturday. Two of us carrying. We got on the Green Line going South and other than the strange smell wafting thru the train car, all went well. Full train. Got off at the Fair Park station and the two of us who were carrying went to the CHL line, presented our identific...

Re: DFW Skeet - Sat 9/9

Sorry I couldn't come today. Had a small family emergency. Kids. Gotta love 'em. Otherwise I think we'd strangle them.

Re: EQUIFAX hacked

I heard reported on OANN today the hack was via a phone app, not their web site directly. Where I work, we are required to perform formal full penetration testing on all web apps and phone apps we create prior to release as standard policy, using current state-of-the-art software and process. It's a...

Re: Smoking at the Pump + cell phones

Ya got me to! Good one. And it's as dangerous to be yakking on a cell phone while pumping gas. Under some conditions, especially if you touch a grounded object while handling a cell, a small static discharge can happen. Gasoline vapors + small spark == boom. Most gas pumps even have small stickers o...

Re: Had to Pull My Gun Today!

Dogs are the reason I carry. In 2013 I was walking in a neighborhood and came around the blind corner of a fence. A woman was walking her two dogs off-leash approaching the same blind corner from the opposite direction about 20 yards away. When they saw me, both dogs charged. I backed up to the fenc...

Re: DME provider fraud (not gun related)

I ran into the same gouging when I was prescribed a CPAP machine 3 years ago. They charged $3500 for a machine I can clone on EBay for $400. They do the same type of price gouging on consumable supplies. Ebay is now my preferred vendor for consumables. The thieves want $120 for a new headgear harnes...

Every day hearing protection

Hey all, I suffered a catastrophic hearing loss in my right ear several years ago. It worked out as my wife snores so I just sleep on my 'good' ear and all is well. So all I have is my left ear and it's not hearing as well as it used to. I know that if I ever have to actually (god forbid) use my EDC...
