Re: Chuck e Cheese: Father changing his daughter’s diaper reaches into diaper bag. Shoots himself and his daughter

Prayers for the family. I know this was in Alabama and not sure what their rules, if any, for posting are but I have been in exactly 3 different Chucky Cheese's in 3 different states over the last 20 years :oops: :oops: and all have been posted with whatever was legal for that state (30.06 for Texa...

Re: NL: Shooter runs into path of own bullets

Either way. If you fly underneath the bullets trajectory at high speed you can catch the rounds.

Re: NL: Shooter runs into path of own bullets

If you fire at an slight upward angle then fly under the bullet path at high speed you can catch or pass the rounds. The rounds are slowing down rapidly and starting to fall They are dangerous if you ingest one in the engine or hit a live HEI (explosive). It's been part of "don't do training" for de...

Re: What Point of Sale system do you use?

Depends on how big an inventory and if you need inventory control / reorder capability. Our hardware store uses NCR Counterpoint but I hold VERY short of recommending it. It's way too inflexible to adjust to our needs. (and it is expensive)

Re: Mass murder at a Church kills 32

This site provides an indication of just how under reported attacks on Christians are in the mainstream media. Very few of these have I seen anything about in the mainstream media. It seems it isn't politically correct to cover such vicious tragedies against Christians but it is when it is the othe...

Re: Earthquake in East Texas

Didn't notice anything, but I'm about 105 miles away though. Went through a 6.+ in Turkey once at about the same distance. That made things sway a bit and made me feel queasy. Went through several 2s - 4s in Japan and Ca. and a 3 in Me. They were just noticeable at 20-40 miles. A 3 in Japan was almo...

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

I think "Beto's" main purpose for running is to try to get the VP nomination. He got a sizable following in Texas and could help any other dem. try to carry the state. He's also got millions of campaign dollars left to contribute to the cause. The dems will go all out to flip our state.

Re: TX: The mean interstate near Waco

I have been the victim of overpass killers twice (once in Iowa and once in Tx) and saw the results of others west of Chicago and northern Maine. I now try to change lanes in underpasses if traffic permits. Also try to gauge what the potential threat is by the amount of traffic overhead. Hours of dar...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I could see Trump declaring an emergency and rather than starting with a wall as that takes time. Jumping on diverting funds for border protection and deportation. If there were sweeping increases in raids and deportations the Dems would wake up real quick. With all the money spent on the Departmen...

Re: Talk with the kids

My grand daughter has gotten so used to it that she looks for the "the signs" when we are going into a place. If she sees one that might apply she says "Grampy, you may have to go back to the truck". :mrgreen:

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

https://w5wx.net/2018/12/28/texas-legislature-sb43/ Couldn't find a better post to put this under. Looks like Senator Zaffirini has filed a bill that would change the "texting while driving" law to outlaw ham radio operation while the vehicle is in motion. This would definitely affect Skywarn storm...
