Re: Crypto-currencies

Call it what you will - it's stil gambling.

I'm not an anti-gambling kinda guy.

I'm invested in a number of things, and yep, I could lose my shirt.

Or, make good money. Not great money, my investments are conservative.

One thing though, bandwagon investing isn't for me...

Re: Carry at the Houston Marathon

I assume you're going to carry. I hope you are anyway. Remember, the Boston Marathon? No, handguns wouldn't have helped, but who knows what the latest jihadist nitwit may come up with where being armed might be quite worthy... Good luck with your times. I could never do it under 3 hours, close, but ...

Re: Pennsylvania Dutch food

Sweet baloney...don't they call that Spam? Honestly, I'm no foodie gastronome or even vaguely consider myself a gourmet, (heck, I've been known to eat raw onion sandwiches) but 'sweet baloney' sound (no doubt isn't) but sounds, just awful. Now, I'm going to have to try it...if I can find it. As a hu...

Re: Franklin Armory coming out with non-NFA 11.5” AR variant

Stealth marketing is really annoying. Facts, give us facts. Caliber or gauge, or, or, or, facts, darn it, I want facts or your latest whiz bang-boom will not be in my arsenal. Yeah, yeah, I realize this sort of bogus marketing ploy is supposed to create buzz, but for recalcitrant curmudgeons like me...

Re: Petition to save the Alamo Cenotaph

GPB is some sorta Texas mutant.

Re: Annoying Trends.

People referring to those they don't know as 'bro' or 'dude'. Don't call me 'bro' or 'dude'. Doing so makes you sound a bit less than bright...

Re: Gun Buster Signs

O.K., then why the need for 30.06 /07 signs with specificity in both English and Spanish in 1" size letters? Or, is that just boiler plate that can be ignored if the business decides to notify with wee size hand outs at their discretion? Or can they tell you're a CCer and hey man, you can't com...

Wow, this is a dilemma.

Re: Good Summer Sausage?

Lena, Some of the best sausage products I've ever eaten came from a place called: Praseks on Hwy 59 near El Campo, Texas. Not only do they make great meat products, they're absolutely great people to do business with. I'm sure they'd ship you their summer sausage. I might add: Their stuff cost more,...
