There isn't much weirder than carrying a .45 while dressing up like a stagecoach robber. Well, maybe it got weirder after we got our stuff at the grocery...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

Extreme over-reaction is the uniform of the day. Unfortunately, steps that stop a pandemic look like extreme over-reaction in hindsight. Our local schools were the one hold-out in this part of the state. They opened on schedule today after spring break. I think that was terribly misguided. Parents ...

Re: El Paso to Alpine: 2020 Lonestar Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

When I was an infant, we lived in Alpine. My Dad was a graduate student and had a teaching assistant's job at Sul Ross. Just after high school graduation, my Dad and I and a friend and his Dad spent nearly two weeks on dirt bikes in Big Bend. Dad was a natural storyteller, and evening camps were a p...

Re: Another Meme Thread

Good advice, but too late for me. I married an Appalachian dream. When my mountain gal brings home a squirrel, it's shot from one eye to the other. That way, she didn't waste any meat and the pelt is in good shape. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I married above my status. I'm a lucky guy. I have to beh...

God bless the compassionate warrior

This moved me. If all you've heard of Rush is hard rock and screeching vocals, I think you may find there's more.

Re: WTT for 30.06 dies

I almost didn't click this thread, because I don't wish ill of anyone.

Whoever WTT is, the tragedy of his death overshadows his enthusiasm for 30.06 or 30.07.

Peace to all.

Oh wait, reloading dies.

Never mind.

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

I have to laugh when I hear some people don't carry because they don't go anywhere dangerous. Heck, if you go to your bank, WM, C-store, or gas station, believe us, you are going someplace that is potentially dangerous. SIA For sure. thus my signature line. The standard I settled on is not to go pl...

Re: Strange experience in a big-box store

We're not in a large town. Word of mouth travels quickly. I don't think anyone I know by name connects me to the conversations I had in the store, which is fine, but there was a thank-you to "the gentleman and his wife" getting shared around on Facebook. I don't use Facebook. My wife found it. I don...

Re: Strange experience in a big-box store

To me you were being as creepy as the guy you said was stalking. Walking up to total strangers telling them to look out for some other guy and then offering to "escort" them seems as weirdly suspicious as anything. I think instead of playing Maxwell Smart yourself, you should have simply informed t...

Re: Strange experience in a big-box store

Do you write suspense novels? You make my day! I have a short non-fiction piece I'd like to finish, intended to help volunteer organizations spot financial misdeeds before they get out of hand. I'm not an accountant, so I may not be the best person to tackle the subject. On the other hand, I feel c...

Strange experience in a big-box store

Yeah, I know. Strange people in a big box store. Who would have thought? Anyway, there we are, smart-shopping for Items and Products. I've alerted on odd behavior in the canned goods. A gentleman sought defilade behind what I think they call an "end cap." He is peering between shelves down the aisle...

Re: Questionable comment in Outdoor Life article on AR accuracy

My guess is the only differences are the drag the bolt experiences against the follower versus the top of the next round to be fed. As the magazine empties, the moment (torque) on the rifle should change a little. However, by the time the bolt has moved out of breech, the bullet is out of the barrel...
