  1. My best set of golf clubs took me many years, too many rounds and way too much money to finally get what was best. (For me) I own guns that have never had a part replaced or a gunsmith’s touch that are marvelous shooters and great EDC. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve also got some guns that I’ve spent a small fortune to get them to shoot like I want but it just ain't happening.  In short, shoot what you shoot best, carry well and it doesn’t matter if it’s a big box store special or the meanest, tactical military grade, updated and approved one to be found. And by all means spend every dang dollar you can doing it. 

  2. He would forever be his brothers hero. And proud of it. If this is his Mother’s son, Give him his first rifle.        My big brother has always been my hero. He bought me my first bicycle.

  3. Just do a colonoscopy prep. That’ll get rid of those last 5 pounds. I remember 180. I could run a consistent 7 minute mile but I’m now a little over 65 and after repelling everything I could get a rope over or out of and learning to drive, and crashing , high performance motorcycles. I’m now at 275, 1 slipped disc, 1 ruptured disc and  knee replacement coming soon along with producing kidney stones like they had value to them I don’t do much of that anymore. I’m proud of you, keep it up for us old farts. 

  4. I retired from Federal Express after 32 years. My father retired from Time D.C. truck line after 27 years.  I’ve heard both sides of the union issue and really don’t take a side. Deregulation back in the 70’s made it possible for the little trucker to really make a living. It also allowed larger cargo planes to be used. Both of these caused the available freight to be diluted and small truck lines died off leaving the big companies and cargo airlines to thrive.

    It all boilers down to the right management skills to keep any business alive. At my age I have seen many cargo carriers fall. Truck lines and airline cartage agents. 

    if you want to hear God laugh out loud, tell him your plans! 

  5. As an old EMT I can tell you that the hand of god was on her. Walking away from that is a miracle. So glad she wasn’t seriously injured. May be time for me to get a new IPhone.

  6. Have your FFL run it to see. Since you haven’t been convicted of anything I don’t know how or why they should deny it. If you are denied fill out the papers for explanation. Your FFL has that form too. They have to respond with a valid reason. Worse case your out $10 for the background check.
