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

too much of this is getting really, really close to "thought" crime....it's kinda scary. You can't prosecute before the crime y'all Yeah, sorta like New York trying to force handgun buyers to submit their social media passwords to the state police so that someone in law enforcement can decide wheth...

Re: Mercy Killing of Animals

Durian is great - tastes like whipped cream with sugar. Knock a buzzard offa crap wagon though... TASTES like tapioca pudding. SMELLS like you're sitting in the Grand Central Station men's room, in Summer. :shock: I'd heard about Durian on a business trip to Malaysia several decades ago. On a visit...

Re: What is the next Wide Scale Asset-Forfeiture?

Means Testing for Social Security and Medicare.
If you have assets or income, "you don't need the benefits" even though you probably paid in more than most.
Just another way of redistributing income.

Never, and don't plan on it.
Interesting, but I'm with Mr. Galt on this one. Eating raw beef of any sort is nowhere on my list of things to do.

Re: Interesting gun bills filed for 2019 session

Cox was making suppressors or parts as a business. Kettler was 'simply' a happy customer. He made the mistake of posting about his suppressor on his Facebook page, which brought it to the attention of the Feds.

So, one guy was indeed conducting a business, but Kettler was not.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I'd put a Cruz sign in my front yard but not spending $35 to get one, he'll have my vote. Normally I have the same attitude. However, here in Central Texas, the plethora of Beto signs kind of ticks me off. My wife & I drove into Austin to visit the Cruz campaign headquarters and gave them $50 in ex...

Re: Interesting Night Last Night

It looks like a rat snake to me. Normally I feel that most snakes are beneficial to the environment, particularly anything called a Rat Snake. However, our local biologist recommends eliminating rat snakes whenever we find them because they're very detrimental to ground nesting birds (like turkeys).

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

… Everyone on the video seems to have made mistakes. That's certainly a major truth! Without audio it's difficult to really know for certain what happened. Was the victim saying "Now I'm gonna kick your butt!" ?? Or was he saying "Leave my girl friend alone!" ?? Or was he saying nothing? What, if a...

Re: Pig Hunting

Since hogs don't tolerate heat well at all, they're generally nocturnal during the warm months. A light at a feeder can work pretty well, but a night vision or thermal weapon sight certainly offers more flexibility. Prices range from a bottom of maybe $2K up to $9-10K at the high end for consumer st...

Re: First time hog hunting advice

I've been using the Glen Guess gutless method (see mrvmax' post above for the video) for about a year now. The 'behind the ear' shot is risky. The spinal column drops pretty low rather quickly. If I have a perfect shot opportunity (hog is broadside and still) I go for the middle of the neck. My seco...

Re: How "Prepped" Are you?

I think I need enough to win my portion of the war. For a Texan, I have a fair start. For a Californian, I have an "ARSENAL" There's the answer! Get together with a handful of like-minded folks and head for California when the troubles come. Most of the folks there are disarmed. We'll rule the coun...
