    Thriving instead of merely surviving!
  1. This school shooter like the rest of them, telegraphed his murderous intent on social media pages months ago, to even as some media outlets are reporting, emailing the FBI himself, telling them what he was planning. This was also no surprise to the students that knew of him at that school, as several media outlets are reporting that many students “knew” he was quite capable of this kind of an act, long before he actually perpetuated it. Yet, the faux-intellectual-elitists in this Republic, consistently cry out about the tools used in this cowardly and despicable act, instead of placing blame squarely where it belongs. Th8s hypocrisy, merely continues to perpetuate their false moral outrage, and shows us all, that their true agenda, is the removal of Constitutionally protected Rights, for their political power grab. They care nothing about actually being able to stop these kinds of terror attacks.
  2. As a matter of fact, he was....kind of an "interesting" introduction to suspect/s with PCP on board.
  3. Bullet placement trumps size and velocity , in my past professional experiences. However, I’ve personally witnessed more than one violent suspect, take a 12 gauge round (00 buck) to the chest and leg it off like a scalded gazelle. That was eye-opening as a young rookie copper, who then realized that scrawny little thugs don’t always fall to the death ray 12guage. Besides, our FTOs made us go find ‘em....(story for another time and venue).
  4. I am certainly in total agreement that HAVING three decent firearms is “the rule”. I would add a .22LR rifle to the mix as well, but, that is my own personal subjectivity sh8ning through. While I am not going to purchase a High-Point pistol (own selfish reasons), I have shooting buds that have purchased their handgun caliber carbines and rave about them. Yes, I even fired a few mags of 9mm through a bud’s. I would rather have one than nothing, by, my choices clearly do not reflect another’s. Last year, I purchased a logistically attractive price point 9mm SCCY pistol. I liked the idea of 10+1 in a small package and another ten round mag being included. It is accurate enough for bad breath encounters, and if used, I wouldn’t feel “bad”, about it sitting in an evidence locker for who knows how long. It’s a BUG for my uses, and so far, it’s been reliable with the standard pressure JHP rounds I’ve put through it. However, with the success of the Glock 43 and the S&W 9mm Shield, I see the SCCY as filling a “niche” rather than a need. As a very wise mentor once shared with me, “You will never, ever, need a gun, until you need one, badly!” In my past military service and professional career/s, I’ve seen that adage come true, unfortunately. Others, I was with at various times, were “not gunned up”,and were essentially useless, except as being a field expedient bullet-shagger. (Which did not occur) Since I still have two hands that are attached and working, I like the choices and preps I decided on long ago. They work for me. I like having a shotgun handy, as well as a reach out and touch somebody that deserves it rifle, as well as a varmint-vermin .22 Any firearm is better than a stern look.
  5. I would not rather get shot (again) or ever get shot at (again) period. While some people may tote a .500 S&W, the reality is that the majority of the thug demographic, doesn't even have access to a handgun in that caliber. Most homicides in this country are in caliber .22LR, .380 ACP, or 9mm. (See FBI-DOJ Uniform Crime Report-annual) This should not be interpreted as these are "the" ne plus ultra fight stoppers. It simply means that at the time the trigger was pulled, at some point in time, the "victim" died from the administration of the bullet/s. While no caliber can be an instant fight stopper, the first rule of any gunfight, is HAVE a loaded gun. The second rule, equally important in my personal book of truth, is to not get into a gunfight in the first place. I carry legally because I've seen evil and know that it continues to flourish and exist everywhere in spite of my best efforts to avoid it like a politician. If all you have is a .380, it's better than a stern look, or a pencil.
  6. Fortunately for me, I’ve never felt the siren call of the latest and greatest pistol. I have lusted after several, but never fallen under their spell. I came very late to the polymer-party, and went Glock, because the sheer simplicity makes sense to me. Yes, they are YOU-gly, beyond butt ugly, but in my hands, they are accurate, reliable for my needs; and I won’t feel too bad if they have to sit in an evidence locker, if I have to use one for personal defense. I don’t feel that way about my 1911’s nor my BHPs. I would not be happy with them in “time out”, so to speak. So, the Glock fills a role. Even the newest one, a 21SF, yeah, it’s a bit of a behemoth to conceal at times, but I dress around it, since I’ve never been sartorially splendid, it’s OK. I like the 13+1 capacity of older, slower (like me) rounds hitting hard and accurately.
  7. I LOVE chips! Tortilla, potato, corn chips, flavored varieties. Yes indeed I like them all EXCEPT for Salt/vinegar, Cool Ranch and the fire hot tortilla ones. I’m also not fond of getting anything “implanted in me, on me, nor tattooed on me”! For any reason or requirement. But, I love my chips! Leave it to the Fed and the governmental types to want to get 8nto the chip business and screw it all up.
  8. AlGore, has always been all about the money. He, like J@ckson and Sharpton, have found a way to “cash in”. None of then can even spell ethics, much less engage in it.
  9. Adding, most metropolitan areas in this country, have been allowed to purposefully degenerate into “shi*t holes”, by their Democratic Party Plantation Masters. Is that racist to acknowledge those facts and that reality? Of course not. The corruption is the same, be it in Haiti, African continent, or, our own major metro areas. Same group of political pustules screwing the populace financially and selfishly, for their own personal enrichment.
  10. A thinking of the “metro herd of Entitlement Brigades”, is always good for society. People need to face reality, sometime in their lives. Living the lifestyle CHOICE of tribalized warfare (gangster/thug life), is not what this Republic is founded for.
  11. First, having a GHB, is something all of our adult children have, and their spouses have as well. Those go “with” on all vehicle trips. Ours have felon repellent and felon redundancy capabilities just in case as well. (You figure it out for yourself) Water and shelter are the most critical items to have the ability to deploy as needed, even if, it’s only for shade, or to help keep the rain and snow off of you, your vehicle etc. Im a big believer in razor sharp folding knives and other cutting/chopping hand tools, that can also be “dual purposed”, if/when things “get close...”. As for assisting the genetically stupid, defined by me as being too selfish to think “they” might need some self sufficiency, I’m not inclined to offer any assistance. The innocents and older folks, will always be welcomed into our fold. The others are whiney sniveling drones, that are of no earthly use.
  12. Of course, China is beginning to put the financial squeeze on US! The Dems/Prog/Marxists will love have our Republic capitulate financially to the PRC, after all, they are “useful idiots”!
  13. Snake, Its OK that the bakers are being forced to be political correct, in providing goods and services to the public at large. Let the buyer beware... Lets let the hat wearing useful idiots march in solidarity with their people, rather than celebrating the rights of all American citizens. So, having some excremental bits and pieces in the cookies and cakes, seems to be a fair trade politically. Embrace the suck, Snake, let’s let it happen all over this Republic. I agree with Marie Antoinette on this one, during her fast fall from French Elite, “let them eat cake...”!
  14. Welcome, we are a motley lot of opinionated folks, just like you, good place for some solid information sharing and a great place to just plain vent at times. Although, having a solid sense of self esteem, and humor helps! Hope you like it here!
  15. ICBM’s are for nuclear weapons, not for weaponized chemical delivery systems. Any of Fox News multitude of ex-Military experts would have shared that tidbit with the bleach bl9nde talking heads. Tactical missles, VERY short range can be used, but, artillery and mortar delivery are the most often used and on battlefield troops. Aerial short range spraying has been used in Syria and Iraq. It would be far more effective if the MalignantDwarfNORK, had some of his minions, bring in chemical Weapons, via our southern border and deploy them in large metro areas. Chemical agents, anthrax, etc, are all short range, short duration tools. Egads, can’t these journalistic professionals even read for themselves? I am weaning myself off televised “news”, because most is digital excrement anyway. Fear mongering, only is effective, when the Sheeple are too apathetic to do their own reading and research. Then, most Sheeple, will simply be infected with the “Ostrich Syndrome”, and bury their heads wherever they can, to avoid reality, leaving their assets completely exposed. Better for society, that the Ostrich Herd gets thinned from time to time than further increasing the ranks of the Entitlement Brigades. The laws of natural selection are not a bad thing at all.
