Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I'm not a fan of changing times. Pick one and be done with it.

Re: Truck broken in to, pistol stolen...I’m mad at myself

I use Parking Spot as well. In the mid 90's I would park at the airport. One night I went to get my truck only to find my tailgate stolen. I went to DFW PD and they laughed and said "we got another one stolen". I did not think it was funny. Ever since I have parked offsite.

Re: Early Voting

Yesterday, my wife and I voted in Seven Points which is in Henderson County. The line was as long as I have ever seen in any election. The process took 15 minutes total. When we left the line was even longer. Yesterday afternoon my wife drove by where we voted and said that it was even more crowded,...

Re: Is LTC considered "Weapons training"

During the days of "re-qualifying" there were a few in the class that had no knowledge of handguns. One guy didn't know the difference between a revolver or a semi automatic. He also admitted that he didn't know the difference between a 9MM and a 40 Cal. This was all found out when we were heading t...

Re: Colbert Show Ridiculous Arguments

There is no way I would waste my time watching this idiot or any of the other late night idiots. If I saw this late at night I would be so angry I would not sleep. That's not a good thing. So I make it a point to be in bed at or before 9:00.

Re: Not watching the Superbowl

I'm not watching. I have not watched a NFL game all year. Know what? I didn't miss a dang thing and my blood pressure stayed in check. Those that feel the need to cower during the national anthem are ungrateful bastages. I think they should go play for the Iranian league.

Re: Got a new eye.

I had both eyes done a year ago. The vibrant colors still impress me. I don't need glasses for anything unless it is very tiny print. Doc put in some kind of progressive lens. I paid for the procedure out of pocket. It was more expensive than the standard cataract surgery. We were offered a 0% loan ...

I used punch cards and wrote programs on a IBM 360 Mod 22. My first production program was to convert a 1401 Autocoder program to COBOL.

Re: December 7, 1941 - A Day to Remember

This is a day we must always remember. However when I went to Fox, CNN and other online news feeds this morning I saw nothing. This is really unfortunate. Having been to Pearl it really makes an impression on you. Much more than the history books and films convey.

Have your wife talk to my wife. That's exactly what she wanted as well. She fired 249 on quals. That was the part she was most nervous about.

Re: Px4 Storm

I have 4 PX4 Storms. 3 compacts and 1 full size. All in 9MM. The compact my wife's choice of pistol. She has small arthritic hand but she can easily rack the slide and can fire lights out with it.

Re: Getting older sucks

It gets even better the older you get. This year I had cataract surgery in both eyes and I no longer have to wear glasses. Also no head tilting in order to focus. It's great!
