  1. If that is the case, then I stand corrected and thank you for making that clear. Ditto to the above. Can one of you show where that is written in our laws? I would be curious to see how it is worded. I assume it would also be beneficial to others as well. I can also assure you that I am no liberal. I believe this guy got exactly what he deserved. If anything maybe he got off easier than he should have. I just hope we don't have to hear about his "life story" for weeks while the victims get their usual 10 minute mention.
  2. Some of the more interesting quotes leading to my thoughts on people wanting to blow him away. Maybe I misread them: “I would have given him an opportunity to surrender and if he didn’t; I would have killed him.” “Assuming we have a safe backstop I bet most would take the shot.” “If in the mentioned stabbing, if one had a shot into the back, or even the ear of the perp, would be no problem IMO.” I would assume that if any of these folks shot and killed the guy simply for seeing him attack others, they would be going away for some time in the ole’ gray bar hotel. If
  3. I don't know what I would have done. I would imagine freeze at first and then try to get the others out of the building. After that, I don't know. I don't carry so blowing the guy away would not have been a option for me. For those that want to go all "dirty Harry" on the guy, I'm going to leave this right here for you. vigilante a person who tries in an unofficial way to prevent crime, or to catch and punish someone who has committed a crime, especially because they do not think that official organizations, such as the polic
  4. I really don't mind if a store asks people to not "open" carry. All they are asking us to do is cover them up, not leave them outside. We as gun owners need to respect those (other customers) that are not comfortable with guns. I know several people that just don't like them but they also don't think they need to keep others from owning them. It's simply not there thing and the more we try to force our views on those in the middle of the issue we simply push them further to the other side. I have to admit that when I see people open carry in public or even not make much of an effort to c
  5. I finally read this last year. It was such a good read and recommend it to all.
  6. Gives a new twist on their slogan of Hot Doughnuts Now.
  7. I have looked for history books at the used book stores, online and in regular stores but finding something that you feel is telling you the truth is hard to pick out. I know every book has a slant from the author whether intentionally or not but finding something that is relatively fair to all sides is fairly difficult. I have also read several accounts of Wounded Knee slanted to each side. Most do tend to lead towards the uncertainty of who fired first or at times out right blaming the other side. The results are horrible either way but we also don't know what really happened as far as
  8. I would love to find the Tennessee history book we had in middle school back in the mid 80's but I don't think that they even have such a thing anymore. Plus, the way history is presented now it seems everything is out to paint our country as a terrible place with nothing but bad events in our past. I realize there were some but I believe there is more good than bad. Something that I have enjoyed is a course from The Great Courses online titled "The American West: History, Myth and Legacy" Some of it is review of what we learned in school and some is information that I have never heard. S
  9. We shot our Mosin today on the property after lunch.
  10. There was the one where the ex-con comes to town and gives him a shotgun I believe. Andy throws it on the couch when they here Barney, Gomer and Otis in knots outside the window.

  13. I used to get Backpacker magazine when it actually had good articles on trips in the US, but it soon went to bucket list trips to far away places and tons of adds. I finally dropped it when it added a strong political slant that I did not agree with. I still pick it up at the magazine isle from time to time but it still is not worth getting. At least for me anyway. I also agree with the silly home finding shows. Maybe I was just in a different boat, but our first house in our early 20's (1994) was in the $40,000 range. And that was a little bit of a stretch. Of course that was 25 years ag
  14. Andrew Kaplan - Scorpion Winter. Pretty good book. I didn't realize that he wrote the Homeland series also.
