Re: WI: Man charged with shooting kids who tossed snowballs at car

I agree the shooters action is over the top, However, I have been on the receiving end of a golf-ball sized rock hitting the windshield at freeway speed. My first impression was a gun shot, but then noticed the rock slide down the windshield. Only my Ray-ban Aviator sunglasses saved my eyes for the ...

Re: G.W. Bush Library & CHL

I think I got the cranky one. He wanted my belt placed in the tray, but I did get to keep my shoes on. Pants have extra inch in waist for IWB. Without belt I was operating with one free hand. Explanation not needed... :???:

G.W. Bush Library & CHL

Christmas trip to visit and I've never been there before. I did some online checking for carrying and didn't find anything. For some reason it never crossed my mind it was Federal Property. Two sets of doors at right angle so the "real" entrance was blocked from direct view. Walked thru the 2nd set ...

Re: Sig Sauer P365

P365 on my wish list for several months. Lewisville Gun Show was a couple of weeks back and nearly walking distance from the house. One followed me home. Needed to grease the rails heavily as the lockup is tight and this bad boy needs a break-in period. Shoots to point of aim and small group size if...

Re: CA: 1 dead 2 wounded at Costco shooting. Not what you might think.

Six rounds, 1 fatality and 2 critically injured while holding a child during an assault. I think the officer did well under those circumstances.
It's like landing an airplane. If you can walk away from the landing its good. If the plane is still usable its great.

Re: Alaskan homeowner kills two trespassers, charged with murder

I wondering if he had spoken to the police thru his attorney if things would have been different.

Looks like another case of only "name, rank and serial number" and the rest of the story when I have an attorney,

Re: Your thoughts

Many years ago my wife and I were on the motorcycle somewhere south of Joe Pool lake on the country back roads. For a number of miles a Bell OH-58 Kiowa played peak-a-boo with us from behind hedge rows. Likely a training exercise for him. He didn't smoke us and he didn't crash. All ended well. :-)
