Re: Bringing Dead Batteries Back to Life

That's an interesting trick. I would keep a close eye on not only the revived battery, but all batteries while they are being recharged. I've had tool batteries and charges malfunction and begin smoking. Happily I was keeping watch at the time, unplugged it, and got it out of the house. Ditched the ...

Re: Got stopped - TRIED to inform - ignored

He said "I don't need to see that - just the driver's license". So he immediately recognized you had an LTC. Mission accomplished. Declare victory and move on. Celebrate the fact that having an LTC is NBD*. It's not that way in every state... (And that has been my experience with almost e...

Re: "Walmart diaper thief" killed by shopper with gun

Believe it or not, there is a significant black market for home goods. . Some months back couple or three guys walked into local Walmart, grabbed a garbage can, swept $700+ worth of shampoo off the shelf, and walked out again.

Re: Attempted robbery at Dixie Gun and Pawn: 1911 saves the day!

There is bound to be more of an "oh, crud" factor to getting hit with 240 grains of .45 ACP than, say, the 80 grains of lead Granpappy's .32 rimfire pushed out of the muzzle at about the same velocity. The .45 ACP can be said to have more je ne sais quoi than the .32, and those who stoke ...

Re: Calexit

As an intellectual and moral matter, the rights to self-government, free speech, self-defense, etc are based on the notion they are inherent to our existence and given by God.

Re: Accurate statistics

The antis like to pump up their statistics by calling any teen -- like 19 year olds -- "children", so when gang members shoot each other it "counts."

Like Charles said, make him source his statistics.
