Re: I hope this Cyclist looking for trouble isn't a CHL

Will get flamed for this but IMHO bicycles do not belong on most roadways. There should be a minimum speed requirement for all roadways. The vehicle you are operating should be able to consistently maintain that speed. If it can't it doesn't belong on the road. It amazes me that we don't let dirt b...

Re: Anyone own a telescope?

I haven't had my Meade ETX 125EC out in a long time now----reading this makes me want to go open it up and use it again. Seems like time just flys by now and never enough time to do stuff that I used to do. The electonic controller with "go to" is really nice to have. I was really surprised the firs...

Re: Torx Screws - Why?

I've never had a Torx screwdriver slip and scratch anything. I can't say the same thing about flat or Phillips screws. Torx is the best of both worlds. They just don't slip, in my experience. YMMV :iagree: :iagree: Me too. Phillips head strip to easliy and slotted---well they just aren't worth anyt...

Re: Have A Hearing Problem??

I can't hear with a darn. When I took my class I would have to lift the ear muffs up to hear the instructor and then put them back on while shooting. The instructor would usually move closer to me after he saw what I was doing.

Re: Am I The Only Dinosaur Without A Smart Phone?

Heck, I need to get my wife and kids to read this thread-----------they think I'm the only old guy that still has a flip phone. May or may not answer it (when I can hear it :mrgreen: ) depends on where I am and what I'm doing at the time. No texting either, I think I know how though.

Re: Drug death that any of us could suffer

I think I trust my pharmacist more than the Doc when it comes to medications. I have had the Doc give me some medications that the pharmacist said that would react with other medications that the Doc never mentioned. They deal with the medications every day where a Doc may not.

Re: Trip To Gibson's Discount Center - Weatherford,TX

I also worked at a Gibson's in Corpus Christi long ago. I remember on Sunday's we had to rope off sections of the store because of the "Blue Law". But back then you could buy a hand gun at Walmart. I still stop at the one in Kerrville nearly every time we are in town. One of the few places I can fin...

Re: going on a cruise. thoughts?

We have been on 9 or 10 cruises and would absolutely do more of them. Even a couple out of Italy.

The very best was the inside passage cruise to Alaska. I think that wife is agreement on that :mrgreen:

Re: Texting in theater sparks fatal shooting

Shooter was a retired cop and I don't think he'd have to comply, correct? Why do you think a retired cop would be exempt from a "no guns" posting in general? Because iirc retired police officers still have a badge and limited police powers so why would they have to comply with a "no guns" posting g...

Re: Thinking of getting a tattoo....

You came off very condescending when you asked. It was read more like "why the heck would you do something like that?" That attitude has been proven by your stating of not liking tattoos, so obviously, it wasn't 'just a question.' Sorry you took it that way, it wasn't intended that way. I don't car...
