My Lucky Day

So, for the last two weeks I have flown without a firearm because of anticipated rushes to the airports, an unfamiliar airline, and out of state travel. Last week I flew American from IAH to Amarillo, and then from IAH to Atlanta. No issues taking my carryon bag through security. This week I flew to...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

Here is the best info I’ve found, he’s on the radio weekends. http://www.randylemmon.com/lawns/fertilize.html Another question..... what do you guys think of fescue as a filler for bald patches? Fescue is green, but that aside, it is thin bladed compared to San Augustine. It also does well the n wi...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

St. Augustine isn't my favorite turf. It requires relatively more water and more risk of disease. But it endures shade better than the thinner bladed grasses. How much shade do you have? I once replaced a backyard of San Augustine with bermuda because there was no shade, and I couldn't put enough wa...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Interested in pairing up a lever action rifle and revolver in same caliber. Have the lever rifle selected, need recommendations on good .357 Magnum revolvers, barrel length 3.5 to 5 inches. If I wasn't going to conceal the revolver, and if I wanted it to digest the very same .357 magnum rounds as t...

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

That's very close to the scenario that made me invest in a 6.8spc AR... Went out to the farm with my .45-70 to help my dad out and shoot a pig or two... Seeing several dozen come across the fence line when you've only 4+1 in the rifle and 6 .44 Mag in a revolver isn't a great feeling. It's much bet...

Re: GA: First GA School System To Arm Teachers

I've been thinking about this a little. My thoughts are that we need to stop saying that we're "arming teachers." We need to say that we are allowing teachers to be armed or carry concealed if they want and meet the requirements of the school district or whatever, but I think we need to stop saying...

This is How Custer Must Have Felt

My hunting habit these last few years involves still hunting in the National Forest. At my age, it’s the hike that matters. Getting in range of deer and pigs is kinda like what the U.S. Army experienced chasing Plains Indians - it’s hard to even see them, and when you do, they scatter. With that exp...

Re: Bloomberg running for POTUS?

Is there some reason/law that George Soros can't run for POTUS? To serve as president, one must: be a natural-born U.S. citizen of the United States; be at least thirty-five years old; be a resident in the United States for at least fourteen years. Soros was born in Hungary, so he is not eligible.
