Re: Felt the need to un-holster my weapon

"Hey man, here's her camera, y'all have a good day." [Put vehicle in drive, press on accelerator] No guns, no cops, no worries. ^^^^^^ There you go! Once it has been established that it is OK for a person (acting on her behalf) to take the camera, hand it over and shut up! Absolutely NO need for fu...

Re: NRA stance on bars and guns?

CNN so ymmv, but this stance confuses the heck out of me. So designated drivers who are not drinking are all of the sudden less competent in carrying because there's alcohol around them?? Obviously, alcohol is off limits when carrying, that's a duh. But to be barred from carrying just because other...

Re: The Founders were WRONG! Time to repeal the 2nd!

We are headed for a civil war. This nation is as divided on economic and social issues now as it was over slavery in 1860. Bring it on, I cannot wait to fight for the Free States of America... or just have Texas secede and then I can patrol the Red or Sabine rivers. I'm gonna need more ammo. Have t...

Re: Rancher on horseback lassoes would-be bike bandit in Walmart parking lot

But a lasso could be "deadly force". What if it caught bad guy around the neck and the horse dragged him? He wouldn't have been dragged unless the rancher wanted to. He is 'dallying' off on the saddle horn, not tied hard and fast. He could release the pressure at any time. But the sarcasm/humor is ...

Re: Nearly hit a deer on the motorcycle today

I've been taking a personal retreat out at some acreage in deep east Texas I have access to. I did some riding in and around the Crockett National Forest today. On FM 227 I nearly hit a deer. While I have a helmet cam, I won't subject people to my videos unless it's scenic, instructional, or someth...

Re: Rancher on horseback lassoes would-be bike bandit in Walmart parking lot

What a strange story. Does the rancher take his horse around fully saddled with rope at the ready or is the police response and the criminals escape exceedlingly slow? It is a great feel-good story, but one that puzzles me when I consider the time management of the characters in this adventure. Wel...

Re: Pray for family members of plane crash victims

And now KHOU has the raw video. While hard to watch, as Charles stated in his original post, you can pretty well see that the plane had to have stalled and fell out of the sky vertically. The FBO at the departure airport in Norman, OK said the plane was topped-off giving it a five hour range. The f...

Re: Peruta En Banc Opinion - Concealed Carry Lost

I was a funeral for an extended family member on Wednesday, and my son's brother in law - a currently serving LEO - and I were talking about potential loss of the 2nd Amendment. He said that, on the day he gets orders to stack up outside someone's home to confiscate their guns is the day he realize...

Re: World’s Greatest Gun Salesman Sets Incredible New Record!

Well over 100 MILLION gun sales nation wide since Obama took office. :mrgreen:

I just walk around the house saying it....and smiling. :lol:

Every time a Liberal Gun Grabber speaks out....and/or proposes legislation, gun sales go up!

And they're supposed to be the 'smart ones'....? :roll:

Re: PA: Robbers planted bag in road, killed first driver who stopped, police say

In 3rd world countries, it is common knowledge not to stop your car for vicitms of car wrecks and things in the road. Sad, because that means nobody will help each other in times of crisis in these countries. I always help out stranded motorists and the last time my car broke down, 3 vehicles stopp...
