This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
I'm having trouble understanding your statement. It *sounds* like you're calling me part of the problem, when it seems to me I was indeed being part of the solution by pointing out the issue that had, to that point, gone unaddressed. What am I missing?

a sense of humor :lol:

By your definition, nearly every thread on this site contains at least a little creep. To quote an oldie but goodie... "Lighten up, Francis!"

I am not missing a sense of humor. This thread has "scope crept" multiple times. I didn't come to the TexasCHLForum to see "meme pics" of either political party bashing, or being bashed by, others. I came for firearms-related "stuff". That doesn't sound like I don't have a sense of humor. It sounds like folks aren't staying on topic. I've seen it many times over the many years I've been a member of the Forum. It's very frustrating.

That's all. Done with this thread and this "conversation" since apparently I am a minority of one in this.

^^ No. I'm with you. Why I avoid the Off Topic threads.

TexDotCom. There's a reason this thread is in the "Off Topic" forum. As the forums list says, "Off-Topic - Topics that do not fit anywhere else. Absolutely NO discussions of religion, race, or immigration!" So if all you want is firearms related subject matter, stay away from the Off Topic forum. Pretty simple and will save you the frustration. Just as in the past I have blocked posters because I didn't want to read their garbage (fortunately all those are now banned or voluntarily gone). But, I do get your point about "thread drift." Hate threads that are addressing a firearm I have interest in, and eventually end up as a discussion about bacon or someone's latest homemade smoker. But thread drift is just an unavoidable fact of life on internet forums. Hopefully I haven't contributed too much to this here, and we can get back to amusing memes. :cheers2:

I consider myself pretty adept at maintaining privacy even when hugged. The secret is keep your strong-side arm low (unless you cross draw, of course). Your amorous friend won't have an arm near your armament.

Twice, though, over Thanksgiving I got surprised by huggers. I know I should have been outed, but there was no reaction in either case.

Or maybe it pays to live in a pretty civilized part of the state not prone to hoplophobia. Actually, I think that's what I would prefer to think. They noticed and just thought, "Oh. A responsible gentleman."

I'm spoken for, of course. I got hugged, I didn't get swept off my feet. A wandering eye on my part would put hurt in another pair of eyes, and that shall not happen.
