Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

This coming Saturday, 2/22/20, is the Hudson Oaks breakfast. Hopefully they will have electricity this time, unlike a recent time we tried to meet there. I will not be at this next one. I will be having a true cowboy chuck wagon breakfast in the chilly Alpine, Texas air, at Poets' Grove. I will be a...

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

Drejka gave credible evidence of being an EDP and potential threat to the woman. Life hurts. It hurts more when you're stupid. I had to look this up. Many of the other forum members may not be familiar with this acronym. EDP = Emotionally Disturbed Person. This has been used by NYPD, NY EMS, and app...

Re: RottenApple

Sending prayers to your son. You mentioned that you and your bride are not well enough to sit around the hospital, monitoring the situation. Even for healthier people, though, having to travel from Hunt County to Richardson (Dallas or Collin County), is kind of a hike. One that would not be easy to ...

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

Geekwithagun:

Thank you for clarifying the issue with the photos in the link.

I find it interesting that of the 3 Illinois stores mentioned, WM chose to install the gates at the store with the lowest number of thefts.
That seems counter intuitive.

If Massachusetts LEO's caught you laying rubber the ticket would read "Failure to use care when starting." :-)

Re: Is Taurus CS the worst in the Imdustry?

Oh, here's another example of Taurus not being too quick on the draw. When I got my free G2C, it would not fit my OWB holster (Bianchi CarryLok, model 82). I wanted an OWB holster so I don't always have to carry in my pocket holster (Remora). Taurus had sent me an email that they had G2C-compatible ...

Her rap name is "The Notorious RBG". :-)

Due to her health, she has one foot on the banana peel. The Donald should get another SCOTUS appointment during his second term, I guess.

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

The Hickory Creek (Denton County) WM has just installed some interesting gates inside the store. I guess they don't open OUT, so that shoplifters can't exit with carts full of stolen goods. They DO allow you to enter the store with your cart. Has anyone else seen these in their local WM's? Not latel...

Re: Strange experience in a big-box store

Aren't loss prevention people supposed to be doing their monitoring of shoplifters on CCTV?

Then once they have the theft on video, they approach the perps on the floor?

Re: Votes not in but Dems all claim victory

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzSg_eY3GV0 Here's a 50 second video of an Iowa coin toss. This guy flips the coin, and handles it repeatedly until he gets the desired result. No one looks at the coin but him, then takes him at his word. He is not magician smooth. It was not slick at all. This was ...
