Re: Hunter/Pastor killed - Be sure of your target

This is not an accident. An accident is an unforeseeable incident. Pointing your weapon and pulling the trigger doesn't qualify. There are no words to describe the idiocy of this person. Absolutely no excuse for him and I hope he's prosecuted to the full extent of the law. :banghead: Prayers for th...

Mrs. Oldgringo and I have been a team for almost three dozen years. In that time, we've lived in one dozen different towns; however, the during past two dozen years, our roots have been here in the Pineywoods.

Re: Buh-Bye Optics Planet

I'm really starting to question why I, or anyone else, has need for a 30 round magazine for hunting, target shooting or home protection? I don't understand why you are arguing the "need" issue. Technically the 2ndA is not about hunting, target shooting or home protection. I know that you ...

That's nice but, what about the rest of his party. You know, the ones who are primarily more concerned about their re-election than anything else in your and my worlds?

Re: 21 or older to buy AR-15?

I'll be really surprised if the issue of high(?) capacity magazines doesn't come up again real soon. I, for one, won't have a problem with it. Define "high capacity". How does adding 1 second for a reload every 10 rounds change things dramatically? IIRC, the last time the high cap issue r...
