Re: 8th-grader suspended, arrested, charged for NRA shirt

Obviously, this is ridiculous and I don't support it. But, with all of the suspensions for finger-guns and pastries chewed into the shape of a gun, their reaction, which unreasonable is at least fairly commonplace. I do wonder whether an NRA shirt without the gun image would have resulted in the sam...

When supply has caught up, things will get competitive again.

I recall Colt's LE6920 selling for $1300-$1500 when Obama was elected in 2008.

Up until this craze, I had seen them for $900-$1000.

Wear comfortable shoes.
Back in 2005, I could still walk unassisted. Still, I never passed one of the too sparse benches with getting acquainted.

This year, I've got to leave it to you guys. Enjoy!!

Re: Army Corps of Engineers - Lakes

I believe member RPB has researched this more than most. I see he hasn't on for a couple of weeks, but if you search his posts you'll find a wealth of info on Corps of Engineers properties.

Re: Major Explosion in the town of West

Just missed by one day, occurring on the 66th anniversary of the Texas City explosion, when the Grandcamp and High Flyer, both loaded with ammonium nitrate, exploded on April 16, 1947.

Re: Antis' Biggest Lies

Small point of correction. Reid did not vote against it the bill, as the leader, he declared the bill a NO vote, i.e. it didn't happen. So he can have a vote taken again at another time. I believe this was done after the fact. The CSPAN2 announcer mentioned after voting on all 7 had concluded, that...

Antis' Biggest Lies

Widespead misinformation has allowed the antis to claim support of large segments of the populace. What was the source of the 90% claim that has been quoted by all? And why hasn't it been specifically discredited? We could conduct a poll at the NRA Annual Meeting and I suspect it would be as valid. ...

Ok I am all confused. I must be a low information voter. My liberal friends are extremely upset on Facebook.
