The kid has my sympathy. Sleeping with that fugly hag is NOT something I would want on my conscience at that young an age.
Agreed.  There ARE better choices to be made in life.

Maybe the women weren’t so bat chit crazy back then, to risk a second degree felony and two to twenty years in prison?  (Just a wild guess on my part...).

“Why’d ya choose such a backward time and such a strange land?”

And yet the Thousand Oaks, CA situation was just exactly the opposite situation.  Cops/Mental health folks had consciously made the evaluation/decision there was nothing to hold the ex-Marine on.  And then look what happened.

The so-called Red Flag laws are doomed to fail just like the background check laws.  I’m sure that “extended family” relative, is now proven and equipped to say, “see, I told you so”!

The fact a ‘family argument’ was apparently at the core of this leads me to believe the older gentleman (rightly or wrongly) should have, at some early point in the discussion/argument, kept his mouth shut so the ‘extended family’ member would not have had the thought to call the police on him.  Doesn’t make it right, but the guy would still be alive!  [For instance only my wife knows I have a CCW or that I own a number of firearms.  I certainly don’t get into heated arguments with family members over this topic like apparently that guy did.]. Ya gotta ask yourself, how much of this bad situation did the guy bring on himself by arguing with a Left-wing nut?  Again, doesn’t make it right, but he likely would have avoided the whole police knocking on his door at 05:15 thang!

Soros says he and his people/organizations aren’t behind financing these “caravans”.  All I can say is, that just means the money pathway connection hasn’t been traced back to him yet.  Someone is helping to provide money to finance their travel - you don’t walk/ride 2,500 miles for weeks at a time, on an empty stomach!  Soros’ “Open Borders” agenda and the money to back it just seems too convenient a match.

And in a related Breitbart [Texas edition] article, they mentioned Mexico turning back a drug smuggler and two guys convicted of murder and rape and one person from Bangladesh.

I don’t do Facebook, but if you do:  you ought to post that pic!

That’d send a swarm of liberals “over the edge”!

All we can hope is that some see things here dont need to be Californiaized.
My wife taught me an expression from her home country, “Hope is the last to die.”  Over the years, I’ve parroted that saying back to her; sometimes to make fun of a situation and sometimes bemoaning a bad situation.

The main problem with Californians moving here is, they can’t see or refuse to acknowledge, “cause and effect”!  They move to Texas because of the jobs, great economy, lower housing costs, and generally better standard of {affordable} living for middle income folks.  For the most part, you can still afford to live ‘the American dream’ here in Texas.

But rather than open their eyes AND their minds as to how this situation came about, they continue to vote in their liberal, more socialist ways.  Passing laws ‘for the greater good’ of the people.... well, *somebody* has to pay for all those do-good’er laws.  It’s the very thing that’s made California an unaffordable place to live for the vast majority of the middle class.  AND they want to duplicate that, here in Texas.  California is basically bankrupt (both financially and morally).  I hope that doesn’t happen here in Texas.... but hope is the last to die!

Tonight’s news says the FBI has begun to focus on south Florida as the point of origin for the packages.  And I’ve already seen a significant amount of news traffic that has begun to raise this as a potential ‘false flag’ operation against Republicans.  (At least people are ‘thinking’ and not just automatically buying into the MSM narrative).

Here’s to hoping they’re able to track the guy down.  At this point it wouldn’t surprise me to find out the guy did rely on the security known to be ‘in place’ to stop the packages getting through.

So that’s my round about way of saying there’s at least a 50/50 chance of the supposed bomber being a hard over, Left wing nut.  Time will tell {hopefully}.

and drug the wife along too (she doesn’t always vote).  But this time I convinced her Senator Cruz needed for her to participate! 
Early voting; Tuesday around noon.  Place was busy but well staffed & the volunteers kept it moving along nicely.

Homeowner found guilty by a jury of ‘assault with intent to do great bodily harm’.  Sentencing will be handed down November 13th. 

Looks like the homeowner, at least partially, got screwed over by his own home security cameras.

Taking a shot at someone fleeing the scene?  No matter what the wife thought or said - this guy’s lack of self control is amazing.  Taking a long range shot at the back of someone fleeing is not a self defense scenario in anyone’s book.

Defensive Tactics / Re: How many practice double tabs?
« on: October 11, 2018, 09:05:48 AM »
Ship, you make an excellent point about practicing one handed shooting.   I’ll admit, I personally, haven’t focused on that as much as I should have - something I’ll take some time to correct.  Yes, I mainly was focused on being caught up in a 7-Eleven or gas station type holdup (as opposed to a home invasion type scenario).  I’ve still got to believe that generally, two severe wound cavities is going to lead to a quicker incapacitation than just a single wound cavity.

I am certainly not arguing that shot placement trumps everything. As the old adage goes, one good solid hit surely trumps two *very fast* misses! 
As I’ve gotten older (just shy 65), the old ‘reaction times’ are noticeably not what they were when I was 25!  This has also caused me to re-evaluate under what conditions and how I would make a draw from a concealed carry condition.  Knowing you can’t expect success when someone has got the drop on you, I would most certainly have to seek cover or, at least, concealment before I’d attempt an intervention in such a holdup scenario.
