That way you know ahead of time whether or not you choose to enter the business. This happened to me back during the summer, where I ...

Re: The tragedy of the killed Pizza Hut robber

They said Grace Jr had fallen on hard times and resorted to crime to provide for his own child.
There are many ways to provide for your child other than committing a robbery.
One example might be: GETTING A JOB! :banghead:

Is the robber considered to be a customer too? I know we live in a PC world now, so just curious. :biggrinjester:

7 Men, 7

That's only 2 bullets per home invader if your 9mm has 14 rounds.
If you shoot a couple of them, I would be willing to bet the others will be headed out the door in a big hurry. :fire

I noticed that too. We have 90 years before that goes into effect. Why are they worried about it now? They will be all dead and gone by that time. :biggrinjester:

Re: Logic behind posting a 30.06 sign instead of 30.07 sign
