Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

America doesn't have a "gun problem" but rather a cultural problem. Violence as a form of expression has become normalized. Look at the violent anti-Trump and pro-fascist protests. Look at the manner in which Philadelphia expressed its joy over the SB win. Look at "thug life" an...

Re: Remington Bankruptcy

I surely did enjoy the various 870's I've owned over the years. Pump guns that shot many living and clay targets. :nopity

Re: TV Viewing

I just don't think they come off as good ambassadors for our sport. The general public just sees whanabe thugs shooting their full auto silenced " black" rifles at no particular target. I don't care, but John Q. Public may think it seems mindless and pointless. :iagree: Appearance is seen...

Re: Spooked in a WM parking lot

My mother-in-law hasn't been doing so well, so I haven't been able to get out of the house for almost two weeks, yesterday I slipped out for about an hour and ran a bunch of quick errands, and today I got out and did a couple of things. I hate to admit it, but I didn't have my gun on me :oops: I wa...

In fairness Houston and Dallas have won some championships and left the city intact. Some cities have real pride, others are crapholes.

Re: Not watching the Superbowl

1st amendments rights do not give you the right to protest on your employers dime. If you wanna protest and exercise your right call a news conference and do it on your front yard, but then I suspect they wouldn’t have a national audience like they do while earning a paycheck on their owners dime. ...

I've not watched a single minute of NFL football this season; however, we are invited to a Superbowl party at a friend's house tomorrow evening and unless I miss my guess, their TV will be on. :grumble

Re: Smooth fingerprints rejected

Mrs. Oldgringo's fingerprints were rejected 4 times, over 160 days, on her first application. It took a call to our state senator to get her license released...that was some 12 years ago.

OneGun wrote:IIRC, the LTC 16 is the handbook. You already know that you can download the LTC 16. So, is there a problem with printing the 88 pages and putting them in a 3-ring binder?

Printer ink is more expensive than 12 year old single malt scotch......that may be one problem?
