Re: Man trespassed for life from ALL Walmarts for OCing a holstered handgun

What should remain obvious to the world is what's plain to see from the perspective of the lawfully armed citizen. Given the necessity of mixing with a crowd of strangers in a dark alley, would it be safer to be in the company of 20 folks lawfully carrying, or 20 randomly chosen from the majority of...

Re: Texas WR arrested in Austin for carrying loaded Glock 19 , unlicensed.

He shouldn't have been carrying unlawfully, although a level headed 19 year old (who could be carrying an M16 for his country) with a Glock does not automatically hit any buttons for me. Anybody taking his Glock out of his waistband to chamber a round while out on the street, that's iffy. Austin mon...

As far as I'm concerned, none of these very aptly named stores have guns.
Or camping gear, or overpriced tee-shirts, or anything other than reasons to head back to Cabela's.

Re: MSM new latest push - cannibalism - not such a bad thing.

I would make a crack about Burger King's new all-vegetable people-burger made from cage free gun-grabbers, but it turns out I have some sense of decency. Unfortunately, my moment of recognizing inner propriety came when I misread a section heading in that original post's linked article. I saw "Categ...

Re: Help identifying rattler!!

I haven't had time to do much recreational surfing lately, and I'm under a heckuva deadline right now - but I have to chip in. This is a distressing story.

Here's hoping the poster is recovering. I know some people will tough out a copperhead bite, but rattler?

Re: Bonnie and Clyde walk into a BAR...*

Back in the 90's I worked at a company (New Micros) headquartered in the old Eagle Ford schoolhouse, where Bonnie Parker went to school. There had been several suicides in the building, and locals often shot at the structure. I worked into the wee hours many nights. Visibility out the front door was...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

Let me be perfectly clear. Anyone behaving that way in my neighborhood- and I mean anyone peacefully and politely advocating the second amendment - will be immediately approached. We know how to deal with his kind. Not five miles from here, a little Bar-B-Que restaurant serves what every single citi...

What is this NFL and Supper Bowl of which you speak?
Good one! Truthfully, the game means so little to me, i’m not sure when it is. If I had to guess, i’d say it was this weekend. But Saturday or Sunday?

Not sure. I don’t watch TV. Got more interesting things to do. I don’t have time for it.

Re: Interesting question involving both 1st & 2nd Amendment

I know several Cossacks, but I didn’t know they were members until after that horrid shootout.

My knee jerk is to despise gangs. On the other hand, the only Cossacks I know wouldn’t trigger the slightest concern in a dark alley. Maybe the local Cossacks “gang” didn’t fit the mold.

Re: CA: Rep suggests forceful confiscation with nukes

Been a while since I've posted, and here I show up like a bad penny and find something I've been pondering lately. Back in the good old days, when every cowpoke on TV packed a Colt and the term "drive-by shooting" had never been heard, philosophies like socialism weren't held in much higher regard t...

Re: FBI Agent has ND

All of my short pull trigger/no safety ideas remain in place. I'm also the type to worry about slide-to-frame fit when the sear is in the frame, and the thing it's supposed to keep a grip on is in the slide. Polymer frames flex. Watch a slow motion video of a Glock discharging. Along with all my oth...
