Re: Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-51645566 The above link details a stupid driver who died trusting his life to his self driving Tesla. He was aware from multiple previous occasions, that his car wanted to drive itself into the barrier, and had even complained to Tesla about it. Did this mean he ...

But now Alexa can tell the confiscators that the guns were NOT lost in a boating accident. :-)

El Paso trip - Have you ever been?

Having been in most all of Texas' major cities, I recently made a trip to El Paso, since I had never been there before. From my home in Denton County, the quickest trip would have been I-20 to I-10. But I wanted to travel a different route and see something else. Once I got to Odessa, I took TX 302 ...

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

A similar short poem to yours popped up at the Alpine, TX Cowboy Poetry Gathering today:

Mary had a little lamb.
Her father killed it dead.

Now Mary takes the lamb to school
between 2 pieces of bread.

Re: Bloomberg

With regard to Prez & VP coming from the same state: For a recent example, just remember when Bush Jr and Dick Cheney were both Texans? Cheney quickly changed his official state of residence back to his home state of Wyoming. It is easy to do when you are wealthy. The Clintons could easily tap the m...

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

This coming Saturday, 2/22/20, is the Hudson Oaks breakfast. Hopefully they will have electricity this time, unlike a recent time we tried to meet there. I will not be at this next one. I will be having a true cowboy chuck wagon breakfast in the chilly Alpine, Texas air, at Poets' Grove. I will be a...

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

Drejka gave credible evidence of being an EDP and potential threat to the woman. Life hurts. It hurts more when you're stupid. I had to look this up. Many of the other forum members may not be familiar with this acronym. EDP = Emotionally Disturbed Person. This has been used by NYPD, NY EMS, and app...

Re: RottenApple

Sending prayers to your son. You mentioned that you and your bride are not well enough to sit around the hospital, monitoring the situation. Even for healthier people, though, having to travel from Hunt County to Richardson (Dallas or Collin County), is kind of a hike. One that would not be easy to ...

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

Geekwithagun:

Thank you for clarifying the issue with the photos in the link.

I find it interesting that of the 3 Illinois stores mentioned, WM chose to install the gates at the store with the lowest number of thefts.
That seems counter intuitive.

Re: Is Taurus CS the worst in the Imdustry?

Oh, here's another example of Taurus not being too quick on the draw. When I got my free G2C, it would not fit my OWB holster (Bianchi CarryLok, model 82). I wanted an OWB holster so I don't always have to carry in my pocket holster (Remora). Taurus had sent me an email that they had G2C-compatible ...
