Re: I'm Ashamed.

Yesterday my wife needed baby stuff and we were right by ( WALMART ). Noooo, I said but wifey was insistent on going, I explained there's a baby boutique about 60 miles away we could go to instead but she just laughed, most people would to I guess? I stayed in the Vehicle and wouldn't go in at leas...

Re: Beto: Mandatory Gun Buybacks if Elected President

I just did some really quick and dirty research and math. Between 2000-2914 5.7 million ARs were sold. At $500 each each that would be 3 trillion dollars. Well, he did not say how much he would pay did he. I'd imagine that since they would all eventually be ground up and no 'legal' market to sell t...

Re: Man trespassed for life from ALL Walmarts for OCing a holstered handgun

In the twitter link in the OP, his text is below the videos. About 7 lines from the top he writes that he "yelled"... "Customer assistance needed in sporting goods!"... after hearing that request being ignored 4 times over the intercom. I can vouch that Walmart has terrible customer service and res...

Re: Communications Failures?

When I was working with the guidance systems on John Deere tractors we had occasions where we lost RTK guidance. The tractors use 900 Mhz radios and, while we couldn't prove it, we lost signal sometimes when oil field trucks went by. I assumed they were running hot radios to make up for the remote a...

Re: Churches arm, train congregants in wake of mass shootings

I went to the website of the company mentioned in the article and looked at their gallery. There are a couple of photos that question at least one of the Safety Rules. They may be a great company but those photos cause me angst.

Re: El Paso Walmart Shooting

While we constitute a large number that support and commit to carrying, we are only a group of <4% of the population. So if there were 200 (arbitrary number) in Walmart at the time of shooting, there would have been approximately 8 with an LTC. Given, unfortunately, that all who have an LTC, carry ...

Re: Topographical maps

Maps? I don’t need no stinkin’ map. Shoot, out here I can stand on a can of tuna and see Amarillo. I do like Topos and have a few random ones around. +1 for the DeLorme atlas. Not quite as detailed as a dedicated topo but very useful. I used one extensively storm spotting before GPS and google maps.

Re: How to Carry Cell Phone

I appreciate the replies. I think I may have to try a combination of ideas. For work I'll start buying the cargo pants. Duluth's prices scare me, as I am cheap and hard on pants, but I hear they are worth it. Secondly, I am needing a new case for my phone so I'll probably go back with an Otter Box o...
