Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Re: Mueller Report?

This is a great country, but we have a lot of serious problems that desperately need to be dealt with.

The Debt
The Deficit (not the same as the above)
Debt service as a function of Federal Funds Rate
Entitlement growth
Entitlements as a percentage of the budget
Aging infrastructure
Immigration
...

The fact that we've spent 2 years on this BS based on a manufactured document, and the lack of congeniality in congress makes me think the citizens don't really care anymore, or are trying to bring the country down.

Look at <*> like Adam Schiff, who has effectively said he doesn't care about the issues he wants to get Trump.

I'd submit these virtual attempts at a Coup d'etat are acts of Treason (18 U.S. Code § 2381), and should result in investigations and arrests.

I'm now a Professional Target Hanger! Who wants to hire me to hang targets?  :wave1:

Still a youngster.  :wave1:

Well that's a fast moving spectator sport.  Notice the bleachers are full. 

Don't think it's got to make it here.

I found it rather ironic, that after the Boston Marathon bombing, that pressure cookers weren't more tightly controlled.

Controlled, no.  Purchases electronically monitored, yes.

Welcome and your first Like Koolaid!

We all have opinions, but you really need to talk with an attorney or (assuming you're in Texas) DPS to get a good answer.
There are a fair number of nuances  in how things are interpreted.

1) Dedicated attackers will succeed. 

2) Lone wolves are very, very difficult to detect.

3) Crazy people (those exhibiting non-rational behavior) are often "outwardly normal" them may become instantaneously unpredictable in their actions.

4) Legitimate idealists ("True believers" of a cause) will succeed or die trying.

5) Nationality seldom matters.

6) The weapon seldom matters.

How will you stop them?  For most, you won't.

The good news is their numbers are relatively limited.

The bad news is 1 can kill 50, 19 can kill 3000.

And there's worse news than that coming.

Tactical Shooting / Re: Tacticool Timmy Wants To Shoot Long Range!

And another one that I read by some self-proclaimed sharp-shooter some years ago, that had me laughing so hard.

This guy was making claims of shooting, and hitting, coyotes at over 600 yards, with his Mosin-Nagant rifle with open sights.

I replied to him, "Carlos Hathcock would be proud of such shooting!"  :th_nuts:
He responded with, "Carlos who?"

Next time try "Vasily Zaytsev", who actually used a Mosin to kill 200+ combatants.

Wasn't he the one the movie "Enemy at the Gates" was made about?

Yes sir. Some facts, but lots of literally license in that movie.

Central Los Angles? Have been through there a few times but never saw anything like that but that was a long time ago. Must be a new park or something.  :icon_wink:
LA, as in just east of TX.
(If it had been in central Los Angeles, we could have survived any onslaught, between the Tannerite, cannons and large number of weapons on hand.)

It doesn't give me heartburn, but turns me into a 5000 gal. tanker truck

I have seen wall paper peel

That's a little heavy on the description side.... :afraid4:

Rereading this thread, I thought about a weekend shoot we had last year in central LA on a 7,000 acre farm, practicing to repeatedly get past a mile with pistols.

On a mile+ long finger lake, several of us were able to hit the far end with our pistols.

About 12-15 second hang time, but a very clear splash.

I’ve seen some 25 yard pistol ranges but it’s an angle issue.  If you can hit a dime at 5 yards you can hit a quarter at 10 yards, or a silver dollar at ~20.

If my home floods, you guys will need an ark.

Lesson to be learned? Don't have cockroaches!  :wave1:
Or don’t leave a revolver in your shoe. 
Or live in Detroit.
Or be a dumbazz.

Guess who is being prosecuted?????

Yep, that genius who was carrying a Hi-Point in his waistband without a holster, it slips, he grabs it squeezes the trigger and now has a religious penis.


Moral of the story:  Don't carry a Hi-Point. :)

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Re: College Admissions Scandal.
« on: March 19, 2019, 06:56:20 PM »
Yes Randy, I've asked friends to help, but never sent someone a check to take a test for my kid.

The feds ran across this one by accident. I believe it's a diversion from the unlawful systemic issues within the FBI. 

Turns out if you don't commit any crimes but mail a check in support of a lie or (not unlawful) scam, that mail fraud.

This country has a lot of very serious issues to deal with way more important than if some wanker paid a college $1/2 Million to get their idiot kid in.

How about restoring the FBI into an actual law enforcement agency vs. the political arm or hacks it is today?
