Re: NH: Pick up truck driver charged with negligent homicide in deaths of 7 motorcyclists

I drive even more carefully when I am pulling a trailer. Occasionally the wife and I go camping and haul our Casita travel-trailer behind. Even with sway-bars, cross-chains, tongue locks, etc. it still makes me nervous to drive down the highway. Many years back a friend was in his pickup waiting to ...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I am speculating that the Houston City Attorney's Office advised Art to clam up and lawyer up in light of potential civil and criminal lawsuits--hence the lack of cooperation from him despite his earlier promises to be transparent. Sad.

Re: NRA Threads and Bogus Attacks

I hope this litigation gets resolved quickly--certainly far enough in front of the 2020 elections so as not to distract. However, this type of litigation can take quite awhile to resolve what with introductory discovery, depositions, motions for partial and full summary judgment, and on and on. We c...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

I thought Acevedo promised transparency in all of this--guess my bad. Looks to me like he is circling the wagons and preparing for a long defense as even the District Attorney has to ask for key records.
Sad.

Re: Whataburger majority stake sold to Chicago investment firm

I am guessing a "pump and dump" corporate job.
Now, if they get rid of the green chili double burger and substitute a soy and tofu burger then I will know the end is near.

Hearing Protection?....Oops.

This morning got up early and set up some steel targets. Checked for safety glasses---on. Fired the first round from my Smith and Wesson M&P Shield. BLAM!!! Darn that was loud! Oops...ear muffs over in the backpack. A senior moment I guess. Had never forgotten ear protection before. Anyway, learned ...

Wheres it’s head? :mrgreen:
The head is out in the back yard somewhere. I looked for it and could not find it as I like to bury those heads so they cannot do any damage. I assume the raccoons will get it tonight along with the rest of the snake.

Watch Where You Walk

Found this sleeping between the bird bath and the statuary in the back yard. About 3 feet long with five to six rattles. My granny always said watch where you walk so I do. I placed the rattler by the garden hoe for length comparison purposes only. Dispatched this rattler with my Smith and Wesson Go...

Re: Man Killed Testing ’21-Foot Rule’

Reminds me of the now-fired cop in Florida who fired a full cylinder into a poor retired librarian who volunteered to play a part in a hostage scenario. Criminal charges were filed against that cop. Last I knew the case was still pending. Oh, he thought it was "unloaded" or he was using "blanks." St...

Store Clerk Loses Job After Scaring Away Robber

This is how screwed up our country is now. The 711 Corporation does the same thing.
I bet the owners of that convenience store are big dems who voted for Hillary.

Re: An Important Message to NRA Members

I did some digging and found this:

Hope it turns out okay for the NRA. There is a saying in legal circles: I was a poor man but twice in my life--the first time when I lost a lawsuit--the second time when I won one.

Re: An Important Message to NRA Members

Hi Charles,
Could you post a copy of the pleadings in .pdf or similar format?
Would be interested in the causes of action.
Thanks!

Range Bag-Not What You Think

Recently bought a new drill and impact driver that came in a nifty nylon bag. It is also a great range bag! You can easily put one or two handguns in it along with ammo and some cleaning supplies. Here is a two pack--strongly recommend! If you decide the bags are not your ideal range bags then they ...
