  1. The Vietnam War

    To those who are interested in the Viet Nam War... I would recommend ya'll take a look at this... Some pretty sensible commentary... A bit long, bur very insightful... Remember... There are no "objective and dispationate" views or anything... That includes documentaries... http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/10/notes-on-the-ken-burns-version.php leroy
  2. A word about color case hardening....

    ...Mister Bob speak great truth on case hardening colors... We are old colt guys and have seen the same results over the years... Unless your ole thumbuster is put away and not handled or used, expect the best of case coloring (...ALA Turnbull or others who use the old time methods...) to become more subdued and faded with normal handling... Ours have... leroy...
  3. Dave hit the nail squarely on the head here...I think... While the second amendment has been strengthened recently; there are some troublesome words in state constitutions that say that, as the Tennessee State Constitution does; ..."That the state may regulate the wearing of arms (...read that "carrying arms"...) with an eye toward keeping the peace..."... Or some such nonsense... This was a Post Civil War addition to most all state constitutions that was added to disarm newly freed slaves, and other lesser children... If you watch and listen closely, what the Supremes have said up to now is in strict accordance with this principle... They will allow "reasonable" restrictions, which we can quibble about... I don't see that changing... I'm like Dave, i cant see the reciprocity thing passing constitutional muster... It should, but it wont... I think... Here's hopin it will... My guess is that it wont... leroy
  4. Warm weather, business, or "out on the town"... Baggy pants no matter the occasion or dungaree shorts... Pocket holster... 938...238... Glock 43... "j" frame smith... Winter time or fall... Vest or short coat... Pocket holster...Coat or vest pocket... I like kydex for the glocks... Leather or DeSantis for the little semi autos and the j frames... Wouldn't turn around for the difference in em... If ya want ta go big... Get a kydex pocket holster and a subcompact glock... any flavor... I carried a Glock 33 or a Glock 27 in my hip pocket of dungarees or overalls... I ya use dungarees, get a 'real" belt... Ya will need it... The main thing is ..."...Dont leave home without 'em..."... leroy...
  5. "...Be still, my heart...!..."... Great loveliness here...! A great firearm... No home should be without one...! Good luck with the sale...!!! admirin leroy...

  7. 3 teams sit out the anthem

    HEHEHE... I know, and i don't care...
  8. I like the .45 Colt...

    I love these old 45 Colts too... A favorite, right next to the great 44 special... Thanks for the "show and tell"... I've burned lotsa powder thru the old model blackhawks in 45 colt, back when it was the latest craze... The hot loaded 45 colt is the equal of anyone's 44 mag balistically (...using the old data...)... There is no substantial difference in 'em... I don't do that anymore... Got too old and too weak ta hold em... Now the loads are in the "real" 45 colt range; with my all-time favorite loading black powder loads and soft cast bullets... We only have eleven 45 colts at the house... One smith, two colts, and eight rugers of various flavors... Ya can't have too many 45 colts... leroy...

    Hozzie makes a good point here... It has been well know for a long while that black crime far outweighs it's relative population size...
  10. 3 teams sit out the anthem

    I've read with interest and not a little bit of chortling about the "dialogue" thing RE: "Black Oppression"... I'm sorry, i ain't buyin this one, and here's why: 1. We elected a black president not once, but twice... He proved to be the worst president since Civil War Reconstruction, and presided over one of the most onerous, one sided political establishments in our country's history. There was no "Resistance" or Civil Disobedience or ANTIBARAK insurgency... 2... We had a "Black Separatist Zealot"as Attorney General under his administration... Stridently "anti everybody" but people of color, and crooked... He is still not in jail, nor will anyone touch him... We endured him, and the spineless political class let him run wild... 3... These two Creteons together emboldened the "Poor Put Upon People of Color Class", the "Thug Class", and their handlers... They were busy runnin wild at places like Fegruson... Ya see it everywhere... Welcome to "BLM" and ANTIFADA... 4... This "emboldenment of the thug class has resulted in a bunch of em gettin shot... It's pretty simple, really... Comply with police requests, and ya generally don't get shot... Fight em, ignore em, try to run over em, or try to run away from em... Get shot... Pretty simple, i think... 5... The current atmosphere in this country is as polarized now as ive ever seen it, and im 72 years old... There was nothing close to this during Viet Nam, and it was very hot then... This whole thing is nothin more than another front in the "Resistance to Trump", which is nothin more than code words for "We're not accepting a duly elected official, nor those who voted for him (..or her..)... It's a demand for mob rule, pure and simple... The end of this little soliloquy; ya ain't gonna get much "dialog" in an atmosphere such as the one we are experiencing now... The "Anti" bunch doesn't want a dialogue; and those who see things the other way are gettin tired of being put upon... This this will have to be won one way or the other... If not at the ballot box, and these idiots marginalized politically; it will be done with the cartridge box... Some of em seem to want that pretty badly... watchin leroy...
  11. 3 teams sit out the anthem

    I understand what ya are sayin... My point is that they can exercise this option if they want.. Notice the recent turn of events with some of the teams... "...We will stand for the anthem"... I'll guarantee ya that they were told that the team had the option to boot them for cause, and that it would hold up in court... I'm in no way defending the NFL, it's players, owners, and those who enable them... I'm pointing out that some here on this forum seem to believe that you have "...unlimited, uninhibited right to say what you want or otherwise express your self as you see fit, and whereever you see fit to do so..."... It aint so, unless you are self-employed.. As DaveTN said so wisely the other day:..."...Your rights are well intact and established..."... Just remember that there can be consequences from acting on them... leroy
  12. 3 teams sit out the anthem

    FYI... I'm beginning to notice some interesting comments about "...the right to freedom of expression..." ... I want ta remind ya'll that the "Employment Contract" has been ruled to supersede the employee's right to "...express his feelings..." many times... Said another way; "...If you are under contract to an employer who has specific rules concerning your conduct, your employer is within his right to fire you if you violate them..."; and they regularly do... This is not an unusual situation in most any professional occupation, from sports, to engineering, to consulting, etc, etc... Ya get the picture... I'll guarantee you that the NFL (...and all other entities like them, that depend on public perceptions of them...) have 'em... Don't be dragged off into the weeds by those who say, in effect, "...You have unlimited right of expression no matter the platform or time..."... You don't if you are employed by someone that ain't you... I worked many a year for a company i wont name that had that clause in their employment contract... It was an utility company... leroy...
