    There were no gun laws at that time because they understood that SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED meant exactly that. After the War of Northern Aggression, we had various laws forced upon us during the Yankee Occupation (known to the liberal Yankees as...

    Well, one could also say that the M1911 was designed as a combat handgun... :) But that didn't stop it from having a good trigger. :)

    You can spend a lot of money trying to upgrade a Glock's trigger and still not get one as good as a very cheap M1911's trigger.

    Well, if it was JP-4, it would have been better. You gotta figure that all the Air Force guys who work around JP-4 would be used to the smell.

    NavyVet1959 replied to a thread Houston Flood in Our Town
    The Barker and Addicks reservoirs which are causing such a flooding issue for the people over on the west side of Houston were created in response to the Texas Flood of 1935. Here's what downtown Houston looked like at that time. I suspect...

    My experience with eating BBQed gator was that it tasted kind of like chicken -- at least chicken that had been marinated in moldy swamp water... :) Of course, with Hurricane Irma headed to Florida, it's time for some BBQed iguana... :)

    When I was last there, they had some pretty spicy jalapenos and I was impressed with them. But yeah, there are better BBQ joints around, but very few where you can bring your own cooler of beer to drink while waiting for a table. :) But I was...

    Depends upon where you are with respect to concealed meaning it doesn't print. There "legally" concealed, "practically" concealed, and "truly" concealed. In many states, "legally" concealed just means that it is not directly visible, but it...

    This was not the first time Houston has flooded and it won't be the last. We will dry out and be back to normal. It's just what we do.

    A friend of mine was in the Air Force in Vietnam. He said that after they got back from a mission, they would just dump their M16s in a drum of diesel fuel. Or maybe it was just JP-4. I don't know any other ex-AirForce guys from over there, so I...

    If I am someplace that believes in the 2nd Amendment, then I'm probably carrying a 10mm or a .45ACP. If I have the misfortune to be somewhere else, then it might be a Beretta 21A (or if need really deep concealment, the NAA .22mag). Sometimes, a...

government throughout the year. Then, take a moment to ponder -- has the government done $X worth of
