Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

Speaking of terms for white people, I am amused when fair-skinned redheaded folks are referred to as "daywalkers".

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

bitterclinger: Please bring your XDM 5.25" 9MM next time. I expect that one is a tack driver with minimal recoil. I'd also like to try out your Glock 43. I promise not to shoot myself in the leg with it. :-) You asked how long the barrel of my Ruger SR9C was. Ruger's site said 3.40", although I have...

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

Using chopsticks seems to take a lot of practice, which I have no interest in doing. Whenever I have eaten Chinese food with Americans who know how to use chopsticks, I feel like they flaunt their skills at it in a superior fashion. I'm glad their flaunting of their superiority over us staunch spoon...

Re: 74+ year old in-laws wanting to get their LTC and new guns

Although I have never shot a Smith 642, I do have an LCR .38. It does have bit of recoil with .38 +P, and although the trigger seems OK, the short sight radius with the .1875" barrel makes accuracy a challenge. It seems the 642's double action trigger would not be kind to older folks' hands, so I'm ...

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Today there were just 3 of us in attendance: bitterclinger, strogg, and myself. We just stayed at Rudy's Frisco for an hour, then headed down to DFW Gun Range on Mockingbird in Dallas. We were there over 2 hours and shot all of our own and the others' guns. strogg's .50 caliber revolver requires thi...

Re: Medical Facilities

Some time ago on the board, someone mentioned that an organization called something like "Texas Hospitals Association" or some similar umbrella name, recommended that all Texas hospitals post both 30.06 and 30.07 as part of "best practices". All Texas hospitals seem to adhere to this practice. As fa...

Re: NY: 20 die in horrific limo involved car accident at rural country store

BBYC:
I am well aware that the Katy Freeway is in Texas.

Note my correction just above your comment.

Yes, this thread has mostly been about the NYS crash, but a recent link detailed a Katy, Texas crash.

the man in the pickup truck pummeled i nto the back of.... I thought this was possibly the incorrect word to use. When I think of pummeling (sp?), I think of someone giving a beatdown using fists. The initial link on this thread doesn't mention the wearing/non-wearing of seat belts, but I guess bec...

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Well, let's all bring 1 or several of our heaters, and enough ammo to last for a while.

I look forward to shooting something different (other people's guns) and providing mine as well to others.

Re: Maryland: "30 days training required to have gun at home"

It's unfair to live in an "anti" state, be it Maryland or the other usual suspects.
