Re: Mercy Killing of Animals

Upon dispatching, one should also process and eat said animal. Not Legal. Supposed to let the game warden or sheriff deputy pick it up and take to a processor. The meat goes to various government run schools for orphans, deaf and blind, etc. I was kidding. But the warden can give you permission to ...

Re: QuikTrip hiring 'hybrid employees' who can work while armed to deter crime, keep customers safe

ELB, I'm resistant to new/old corporate speak. I recall when 'interpersonal relationship' came out and it made me gag. Changing the word 'Personnel' to 'human resources' also made me gag. Or now rather a dated term -'win-win' gag... And my list goes on, but I'm sure you get my curmudgeonly point. W...

Re: California bar shooting leaves 12 dead

Very tragic on many levels. My condolences to the friends and family of these victims. More gun laws are needed in California as concealed carry laws do not prohibit the licensed carrying of a gun in a bar as long as the customer does not drink alcohol. Obviously that law needs to change. Can't bel...

Exit polling is not looking good for Cruz

Robert Frances is carrying 98% of the deceased vote.
The dead always vote Democrat.
I may have held my nose when I voted for Trump, but Dad turned over in his grave when he voted for Beto

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

I hope the blue voters don't find out that their votes count twice on Wednesday and 5 times on Thursday. This is for blue votes only. :tiphat: Did you hear about the changes they made in voting straight party ticket? If you are wanting to vote straight R, the machines will be set up for that today....

Re: Early Voting

Good news from Alvin.

I voted yesterday and the line was out the door with about 40 or so folks outside in line. We all had a good time making fun of Beto and his campaign. Only one person out of the 40ish folks there seemed uncomfortable with the anti-Robert Frances banter.

Re: Legit or gimmick?

This is interesting. Looks like you can lighten your recoil spring considerably without slapping the youknowwhat out of the frame. In theory, this should lighten felt recoil considerably. It would at least spread out the felt recoil and convert the "snappyness" of a 9mm or .40 into more of a push. T...

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

My reasoning is pretty simple; I find the other choice dishonest, untrustworthy, unconnected to reality. I find it fascinating that when I disliked Obama's POLICIES, I was a considered a racist by people on the left. All of the complaints I hear from the left concerning the current POTUS (and in th...

Re: EDC Gun Maintenance

I used to be a "clean it after every range session" person before I got into competitive shooting. My competition gun will routinely go 3k-6k rounds without so much as a field strip. I have even pushed that out to 10k without issues. A full disassemble and cleaning only happens once a year and I han...

Re: Thoughts on open carry

I don't open-carry for two primary, but not exclusive, reasons. I don't want to draw attention to the fact that I'm armed; and 2) I don't want to get shot by a BG if I'm sufficiently unlucky to be at a location where an armed robbery goes down. Yeah, I'm saying I don't want to be a target and it's ...
