The 1911 must have been very drunk when he hooked up with a Glock to create that thing.

Re: SB 288 - Motorcycle "lane splitting" bill

I want to see some biker do that and come upon one of those ghettomobiles that have the spinners extending a foot to each side of the wheels. Rude surprise.

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

My wife likes the smell, too!
