Re: Obummer didn't expect this...

If this has already been posted, sorry. It's new to me. The video is from two years ago. Clearly it had no impact whatsover on POTUS or the administration or Pelosi.

Oh. My. Gosh.

That is so cool. Except that I dunno I wanna start the oven to do bacon, that rack-over-the-top trick is great too.

Somebody needs to weave & pre-cook those for sale and I'm all-in. Anyone here work for HEB? ;-)

Re: Became a life member today

Took me a while, several calls and unsubscribing to e-mails, but the only thing I get from them is my American Rifleman magazine. I had complained about email earlier in this thread, but as it happens when you get one you don't like, clicking on "unsubscribe" for that category does work--I'm not ge...

Re: One problem/issue if licensed OC passes

...I'm guessing that once the novelty of legal O.C. passes, relatively few will do so... Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I'd feel a bit embarrassed (as in being a show off) to O.C., but that's me. Concealed carry works just fine for me. I suspect the opposite Abraham, that as more & more individua...

Re: Questions on Driving thru States that don't honor TXCHL

I find traveling out of state to be extremely perplexing as far as all the different state concealed (where permitted) laws... It's a sad situation . Yeah I've had occasion to drive through Illinois recently and didn't even bother to bring a handgun for the trip--would have to have stopped in advan...

Re: Cruz Declares Candidacy for POTUS 2016

I don't know much about Cruz except that he apparently is a good lawyer :evil2: and has zero experience getting anything (at all) done in Washington. This is troubling of course, particularly if you live in LBJ country as I do (great at working deals). But Cruz seems to have the "big picture" right ...

Re: Squib load malfunction

I hate these stories. I can well imagine, particularly if you're new and in CHL range class firing the multiple-rounds sequence that one might not notice a squib, especially depending on what sort of hearing protection one is using. Glad you're OK PaJ. It would never occur to me to buy reloads but ...

Re: Obama's gun lies too much even for the WaPo

It would be interesting to see a survey of the town hall participants, whether they bought that obvious bull from, ugh, our President.

Re: Block Robo Calls

We have a Verizon land line which we keep as our "home phone number", though for everyone that we actually care-or-need to TALK TO like friends & relatives, we use our cell phones. Since CallerID is easily masked or spoofed these days, we decided to ditch it and are saving $250 a year, but this mean...

Re: Biden checks into Betty Ford Clinic?

a resident of the Center apparently contacted an outside family member...the family member “was playing a prank” and no such visit had officially taken place. Proving once again, you can't believe everything you read on the internet. @Jim Beaux, yes, a "world of lies" these days, sometimes passing ...

Of course I read the rules. The word "jerk" is neither mentioned nor defined anywhere.
