  1. This has been going on since the Clinton admin. Repeatedly been shown to happen but libtards don't care as Republicans are too gutless to do anything about it. I guarantee it will continue unabated.
  2. Riding around in my work car today (14hrs, yuck!), I listened to quite a bit of news about this. Parents were found in an "artist's warehouse" in Detroit. Their lawyer told police he couldn't get ahold of them, i.e. they were incommunicado. Their car was spotted on the street, police set up a perimeter & they were found. One internet news report has a neighbor/friend/relative saying the parents spoiled the kid rotten. Based on the mom's texts, I can believe that. The shooter posted pics of the gun on his social media saying (paraphrasing) "Look at my Christmas present!" Heard another report that the kid had the pistol in his backpack when he & the parents were meeting with school officials. No clue if that's true or not. Some school officials are now being "charged", whatever that means. Seriously doubtful anything will stick, even criminal negligence. Some argue the kid should've been suspended pending a psych eval. I can't disagree with that. The local DA had a press conference (of course) where she listed the gun maker, model, caliber & the store where it was purchased from. Kinda pissed me off she named the store as they did everything they were supposed to do in a legal sale. Hopefully, they won't get a bunch of negative feedback. I'm sure some of the crazed gun grabbers will march around their shop. My observations: 1) WHY in the wide, wide world of sports would these "parents" buy this psycho kid a pistol AFTER the school repeatedly expressed concerns about his behavior? WHY? 2) Studies show the vast majority of school shooters were on, or have been on in their past, some ADD drugs of some sort. For a long time, the US mil wouldn't take recruits if they've been on Ritalin or other ADD drugs as a kid. No clue if that's still the case currently or not? 3) Not a fan of red flag laws by ANY means, but I think there should've been something flagged by the local po-po should either of the parents try to buy a gun. Not deny the purchase, but have someone have a SERIOUS talk with both parents about the circumstances. Too bad the gun shop didn't know, then they could've denied the sale themselves. 4) Caller after caller on some of the national talk shows (I have sirius radio) were saying "we have too many guns!" I was screaming back at the radio, "How many is enough???" LOL! Jackasses. 5) On one hand, I blame the school as much as the parents. The school could've kicked the kid out for an alternative school or mental treatment. Yes, the parents probably would've sued but I doubt they'd have won that one. To be fair, the schools have a LOT on their plate already without making them either fortune tellers or amateur shrinks. But surely the guidance counselor could've pushed for something? I was bullied quite a bit in junior & high school. To this day if I see certain guys in person we're going to revisit those days & they're not going to like the visit. But I NEVER even thought about taking one of my dad's guns & killing some guys over it. This is a societal failure, IMO.
  3. I would NEVER go to the Cheatham range by myself. Never.
  4. Yeah, I went out to the garage today & looked at mine. Yours is a LOT bigger than mine (that's what SHE said! LOL!). Two healthy, strapping young men could do it though. An old fart like me though, no way.
  5. I've owned Colt SA gun myself, I get what you're saying. But even a half-cock position will possibly allow a primer firing should it let go. Besides, Baldwin says he didn't do it. Isn't that enough? (Yes, sarcasm)
  6. All were in Nashville. Sadly, a lawyer is the only way to walk into a courthouse anymore. Even small claims, which mine was, I was told by the judge to "get a lawyer."
  7. It looks just like the Granite safe I have. If so, about 425lbs or so. These are darn good safes too! I moved mine by myself & I'm 63, no spring chicken. I used my utility trailer so it was lower than my truck. Tilt it back onto the trailer, door facing up. Lift the bottom & slide it onto the trailer, strap it down with MULTIPLE straps. Easy peasy. Use a four-wheel appliance dolly to move it inside the house/garage. The key to a safe is NEVER pick it up completely off the ground. Tilt it, slide it, whatever you need to do but don't lift the whole thing at once. Pic at bottom.
  8. Those aren't TRUCKS! THIS is a truck!!!!!!!
  9. Wow, lots of coaching moves this week! Kelly leaves ND for LSU. He'll have success there, I bet. Curious to see how he takes to the SEC shark waters. Riley leaves OK for USC. I think he'll do well there also. Other than Oregon, not much happening in the Pac 12. The Florida hire puzzles me a bit. I'd have thought they'd have wanted a "name" coach. Could be no one wanted to go there that Florida wanted, who knows? And the Lady Vols are still undefeated!!!!!!
  10. TWRA range in Montgomery Co, TWRA range in Cheatham Co. Depending on where you live & which hiways are closest, it may be an hour to get there. May be 45 minutes, but I doubt any less. It is what it is.
  11. My small claims was thrown out by the judge & he told me to go hire a lawyer. He wouldn't even listen to what I had to say.
  12. No disrespect, but the BBB is a joke, a toothless hound. I've sicced them on 2-3 businesses that essentially ripped me off & all of them basically told the BBB to pound sand. The BBB has NO legal standing nor will they engage in any. Sadly, these days the only thing that does work is hiring a lawyer.
  13. Walnut allows density, stiffness, durability & looks. That's the reason a lot of furniture was/is made from it. While not totally immune from rain, moisture & humidity, it's the best "natural" wood for rifle stock material. Laminates came along later to help offer other wood options as well as different looks. Walnut grips were a S&W (and others) staple for decades. Darn good stuff for gun thingies.
