  1. Yeah that might be the most troubling part of this story, that the officer is standing there holding a gun that he thinks is unloaded.

  2. Some 17 year old kids walking home from the store are no threat at all...some are murderers (or at least are willing to be). I've looked "deep into myself" and I'm fine with "me". The only thing I'm "predisposed" to do is not snap to ANY judgment about anybody's guilt or innocence. You weren't there...I wasn't there...the 911 operator wasn't there but I'm fairly certain that if the DA feels he has enough evidence to get a conviction he'll proceed with charges; if he doesn't then I suppose I'm predisposed to think that the shooting was justified.

  3. In 1998 I was pulled over at 1am by unmarked car. "officer" walked straight up to me,past my outside rear view mirror and asked for my license. Whenever I get pulled over (3times in 24 years) I get license,hcp,etc ready,turn on interior lights and put my hands on top of steering wheel. When I handed my license and hcp he asked why I had two drivers license. I told him to look again that I didn't. He says handgun permit? Do you have a gun on you. I replied yes, he said where is it, I replied in my right hand. He gave my Id's back and told me to go on. I drove to nearest phone which was my house

  9. I'll top that. I'll give you 3:1 odds the Deputy and Super are related, by blood or marriage. There are enough rural counties in this country where the County Mayor, the County Sheriff, the Chairman of the School Board, the owner of the Grocery Store, the owner of the Department Store, and the lead Banker all have the same last name or married each other's sisters. The only way you'll bust up a lot of these little chummy circles is with prosecution through State or Federal officials. And, if "you're not from around here" or if you are not related to the three leading families, don't you eve

  14. Considering the situation if those two men robbed the store and ran out of the building. If you pulled your gun out you would probably be arrested too BEING that NO ONE was in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death as they were fleeing. Confronting them with DEADLY FORCE as they leave will only WORSEN the situation and cause harm that could have been avoided had they been allowed to flee. Keep in mind that the only time you can display DEADLY FORCE is to DEFEND yourself or third party if they are in IMMEDIATE danger of serious bodily injury or death. If they are running away they

  16. When any demographic group hears the same garbage day in and day out for years, the word "hear" has the meaning, that group is eventually going believe what it has heard. The rest heard it once and tuned that garbage out because they immediately identified it as garbage propaganda, like Global Warming. There is "brainwashing" or some kind of programming going on all around you, all the time. Not that it is good or bad, but humans get it thrown at them all the time. The part that worries me is the part that Bill Ayers and the Tides Foundation is doing to our kids in elementary school and

  17. Actually, Raoul, the use of an EO has it's legitimate uses, like the wiki states, when used in conjunction with legislative authority and constitutional authority where written. It just hasn't been used that way a lot of times. This is one of those times. The Republic we live in allows for the President to do some things without oversight, but potentially turning all the cute armed alphabet agencies against the civilian populace ain't one of them. We're not a democracy, yet, just getting close.

  18. I think I can answer the original question. Salt is found naturally in almost every state. Nashville was founded because there was a salt lick there. Take salt lick earth, soak it in water, strain the water into a large metal pot, heat to evaporate the water and what left is salt. You may have to soak it and dry it several times to get it clean. Follow deer and other wildlife to areas where salt licks occur naturally.

  22. It just keeps coming. It's getting hard to ignore. Even those who have ignored the issues are becoming skeptical, and the skeptical are getting downright cynical. It takes Sooooo Loooooong to trigger folks' concern, but the administration provides sooooo muuuuuuch material that it becomes impossible to ignore.

  23. I have conversations sometimes with the 9 year old grandson about different scenarios and what we would do. He wishes there were zombies so he could snipe 'em. And he also told me he would rather be a zombie than be dead because zombies get to walk around anyway.

  24. This. I also always tell them right off, with my hands on the steering wheel. None have ever said much, mostly something along the lines of "that's fine, thanks for telling me". One ran my ID and came back & asked if I were armed, I said no (I was not) because I was going places it was not allowed, and he did not search or anything just grunted at me. Comes down to, I have nothing to hide. If I can convince the LEO that I have nothing to hide and am totally up front with it all, he does not feel the need to make me get out, disarm, search the car, or otherwise waste time and get str

  25. This is why I will always inform them. I have lots of respect for that job, and most of the individuals that do it. Why give them one moment of anguish when they're doing something that I support? And yeah, a few of them are boneheads, just like anything else.

  27. ^^This One note on national parks is that buildings where actual NPS employees (aka rangers) work are off-limits, sign or not. I don't think I have seen a building where they work that wasn't posted with a gunbuster, but it's not required. A gift shop or snack bar operated by a contractor would have to be posted, but a visitor center or ranger station is off-limits posted or not. All state parks are good-to-go. City parks have to post except that Nashville and Knoxville (any others?) city parks are off limits even without a proper sign. Confused yet? Thank a legislator.

  29. The rule of have "members only" parking at a club is not the Issue here in my opinion . Paying your money (in this case 30.00) to shoot a match and then having someone pull your score sheet after the match is over and never telling you that this could happen is poor judgement and the issue here. If I don't park in the right spot tell me face to face that you are going to keep my money and my score sheet then I will decide to move, shoot or communicate. If a shooter breaks a safety rule or some other DQ'able offense, more power to you. The shooter deserves to forfeit match fees and scores and

  31. We don't always get what we want. I can hear the drums in the distance. People will choose 1911's over Glocks for many reasons. *It's all they know, and don't want to know any better *They're convinced JMB was something supernatural and to be worshipped. *They're convinced the .45 will hit a man in the hand and knock him to the ground *They think they are prettier than a Glock......Okay, they win that one. *They think on paper accuracy is equal to practical accuracy therefore the 1911 is much more accurate than a Glock *I've even met a couple who think they are more reliable. *T

  32. No matter how stupid we think the law is it is still a law. And that law must be enforced regardless of who breaks it. And think about this, from now on anytime someone does enter these school grounds, or perhaps any school grounds, armed they can use this ruling as precedent to have their charges dismissed. Probably a good thing as I do not believe the current law protects anyone. If they really wanted to protect the children and stafff they would allow the staff to carry in a safe, yet easily accessible, manner. Dolomite

  33. Why not go & try the same exact thing this Super did & see if the same DA lets you off, I would be willing to bet you wouldn't even have left the property without a new sat of bracelets. Can we say Conflict of interest, Corruption, Favoritism etc etc?

  34. It seems relatively simple to me. If they can forbid you from having a firearm in your locked car, then they can forbid you from having a Bible in it, or political literature, or even from listening to talk radio once you drive onto their property. Where does it end? They are ignoring the fact that your car is YOUR property. As long as it stays in your car, what business is it of theirs?

  35. How do you dispose of a bullet with a setback issue? I've had this happen from doing exactly the same thing as in the OP's story. Cycling the gun for cleaning or showing it off, or just storage and re-using the same bullets over and over. I have a shelf in my office with three or four of these "too short" 9mm rounds, where the bullet has been pushed down into the casing too far.

  36. Since this is already sold I'll throw in my unrequested two cents. On all of the forums I frequent "I'll take it" typically takes precedent over lookers or people asking questions or for more pictures, whether on the thread or through private message. Cash is king and a buck in the hand is worth a lot more than two bucks worth of maybe.

  37. This is not thread crapping, this is for informational purpose. According to the ATF, the "frame IS the gun." Hence, the 1911 is an Essex 1911, not a Colt National Match. GLWS!
