General Gun Discussion / Saw three denied sale at my LGS today.
« on: April 10, 2013, 03:14:27 PM »
I went to my LGS for lunch. I was walking around and went to one of the counters to talk to a buddy that works there. As I was standing there 1 women and 2 men walk up and are looking at guns in that counter. I politely moved over and when I did, GOOD GAWD..... I almost passed out from the smell of mary ju wana.. ( I know )... They smelled like they had taken a bath in it, slept in it and ate it three times a day. I looking at my buddy and he is looking at me. Well, they say they want to see a Beretta Police Trade that is on sale. Just then two other customers notice the smell and say something to the counter Mgr. He walks over and acts like he is helping me to see what he can smell. While all of this is going on, one of the guys hands the girl the money and says I want that one. ( Ruger SR9 ). My buddy sees this and declines the sale to them. One reason was a straw purchase and the other was due to the smell they were putting out. THEY were not happy.. I think it was the right thing to do as they do also.

General Gun Discussion / Welcome to Texas Colt!

Colt Competition, which makes AR-15-type rifles for Connecticut-based Colt’s Manufacturing Co., will move its operations from Oregon to Texas, parent company Bold Ideas revealed Monday.
The change comes after a strong courtship effort by Texas Governor Rick Perry to roll out a friendly welcome mat to gun manufacturers frustrated by recent and drastic gun control legislation in their home States. Connecticut’s Legislature passed a comprehensive gun bill last week that made most kinds of AR-15 rifles illegal to own in the State.
Colt Competition will now put down roots in Breckenridge, Texas — potentially trading more than 600 Oregon jobs for jobs in the Lone Star State.

Its not Gun Control, its People control..

I found this on another forum and thought it was great.. See for yourself..

Like to know why we need Guns to Shoot deer? Here is the answer....

Why we shoot deer in the wild:
(A letter from someone who wants to remain anonymous, who farms, writes well and actually tried this)

I had this idea that I could rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away), it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home.

I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope. The cattle, having seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it. After about 20 minutes, my deer showed up-- 3 of them. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me. I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold.

The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation. I took a step towards it, it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope, and then received an education. The first thing that I learned is that, while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope.

That deer EXPLODED. The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity. A deer-- no Chance. That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I had originally imagined. The only upside is that they do not have as much stamina as many other animals.

A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head. At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope.

I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual. Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer's momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in. I didn't want the deer to have to suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder - a little trap I had set before hand...kind of like a squeeze chute. I got it to back in there and I started moving up so I could get my rope back.

Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when ..... I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist. Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and slide off to then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head--almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts.

The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly. I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective.

It seems like the deer was biting and shaking for several minutes, but it was likely only several seconds. I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now), tricked it. While I kept it busy tearing the tendons out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled that rope loose.

That was when I got my final lesson in deer behavior for the day.

Deer will strike at you with their front feet. They rear right up on their back feet and strike right about head and shoulder level, and their hooves are surprisingly sharp... I learned a long time ago that, when an animal -like a horse --strikes at you with their hooves and you can't get away easily, the best thing to do is try to make a loud noise and make an aggressive move towards the animal. This will usually cause them to back down a bit so you can escape.

This was not a horse. This was a deer, so obviously, such trickery would not work. In the course of a millisecond, I devised a different strategy. I screamed like a woman and tried to turn and run. The reason I had always been told NOT to try to turn and run from a horse that paws at you is that there is a good chance that it will hit you in the back of the head. Deer may not be so different from horses after all, besides being twice as strong and 3 times as evil, because the second I turned to run, it hit me right in the back of the head and knocked me down.

Now, when a deer paws at you and knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head.

I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away. So now I know why when people go deer hunting they bring a rifle with a sort of even the odds!!

All these events are true so help me God...An Educated Farmer

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Sorry Shipwreck....

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is out indefinitely after having surgery Saturday night to repair a broken jaw and teeth suffered when he was struck in the face by teammate Brooks Orpik's slap shot.

Based on what usually happens with broken jaws, Crosby is in danger of missing the rest of regular season. The Penguins stated on their website on Sunday that they will provide a time frame later in the week.

The Penguins, already playing without top defenseman Kris Letang, also announced that defenseman Paul Martin will be out four to six weeks after having surgery. Martin is the team's No. 2 offensive defenseman.

The injuries come at a time when the Penguins are enjoying their hottest regular-season streak in more than two decades. They will take a 15-game winning streak into Tuesday's home game against the Buffalo Sabres. They are two wins shy of the NHL record of 17 set by the Penguins in 1992-93.

Crosby's injury comes days after the Penguins created a buzz in the hockey world by trading for Brenden Morrow, Douglas Murray and Jarome Iginla over a five-day period.
