  1. Spring here already, in Florida....dogwoods are in bloom...thermals rising...
  2. No, the guy said it sprayed but you "still can't smell nothing" ......Believe me, when a skunk sprays......you will "smell something".....Chances are, it was someone's house pet, neutered and "neutralized" .....I killed a skunk one day, with a .30-30, and when I shot him, a dense "cloud" of skunk spray, erupted from him, and was clearly visible, as it drifted away...and it for sure...stunk. In fact, the whole area...stunk with skunk... By the way, for anyone who ever gets sprayed, or their dog, or clothes, try this cure...it works, absolutely! Take hydrogen peroxide, one pint, to one box of Arm and Hammer baking soda, and mix the two together.....While the mixture is still foaming, cover the dog, or yourself, or clothes with it. The odor is entirely neutralized by the chemical reaction...believe me, it works, as I have used it on three occasions.. You can add some liquid soap to the mixture, if you need to get the mixture in better, but it works well without the soap...Just rinse off, after a few minutes, and you're done!
  3. Baby mimics...growing new bodies....
  4. And as the opposite has always repulsed me, I thought you might find this understandable... The Humble and Contrite in Spirit 66:1 Thus says the Lord: "Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? 2 All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the Lord. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.
  5. Here's my 50...
  6. Best advice I could give you...or Gun Dog, by the same author. The best advise and training...Your dog will love you for it!
  7. Just one of the smaller, bigger ones....
  8. Yup, same here....especially those cars with the Xenon headlights....
  9. Used to listen to him all the time....and he was always spot on...One of radio's greatest personalities....and a moral conscience for Americans..as well as making sense of "the rest of the story"....God speed him ...
  10. And won over his son.....good job, Steve! If more young people had a good introduction to firearms, there would be less accidents, and less hysteria about them...just keep them locked up when they're around, because they definitely hold a fascination for them...
  11. If it doesn't really matter, why don't you just turn in your chips? And admit defeat....after all, your argument really doesn't hold enough water to fill the void after you pull your finger out of the cup...
  12. As snopes said, "No anecdote is so good that it cannot be improved upon, and that appears to be what happened here." But the fact of the matter is not that the facts are wrong...but that the story had an anecdotal value that supersedes the facts...even if they are "embellished"... "A couple went on vacation to a fishing resort up north. The husband liked to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife liked to read. One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a short nap. Although she wasn't familiar with the lake, the wife decided to take the boat out. She rowed out a short distance, anchored, and returned to reading her book. Along came the sheriff in his boat. He pulled up alongside her and said, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?" "Reading my book" she replies as she thinks to herself, "Isn't it obvious?" "You're in a restricted fishing area," he informed her. "But officer, I'm not fishing. Can't you see that?" "Yes, but you have all the equipment. I'll have to take you in and write you up." "If you do that, I'll have to charge you with rape," snapped the irate woman. "But, I haven't even touched you," groused the sheriff. "Yes, that's true," she replied, "but you do have all the equipment." MORAL: Never argue with a woman who knows how to read."
  13. Now, I'm wondering if you don't really think that government has gotten too big to be held responsible to it's citizens, and needs to be "restored", or even bankrupted from it's own indulgences....
  14. Now, will it pass the House, or get vetoed...??
  15. Last I heard, I thought we were the government....but maybe it has gotten away from us!
  16. Here is the same part....but you're missing it yourself.... Do you think the US is any different in the world opinion page than any other country if it came to insurrection, civil war? Much less, do you think that American soldiers are going to shoot against those who have the same passion for freedom as their countrymen? Some would, some won't....same as Iraqi, and same as any other internal war...except if wouldn't be us over there...it would be us against us. Do you know that there were more Americans killed in the "War between the States" than any other war? But nothing good could come of it but another if not worse anarchy or dictatorship...and every man against his neighbor.
  17. Feral cats and coyotes? Especially with the high velocity cartridges....
  18. Still another defeatist attitude....If all I had was a Glock, I would work my way up the ladder until I had what I needed to do the most damage....the same as any insurgent or guerrilla group...Not unlike how the Iraqi's or the Vietcong, or any other number of people who believe in causes worth fighting for..... and worth dying for. And freedom is one of those... Wonder how many fighter jets are going to strafe their homeland....?
  19. If everyone thought like that....wouldn't be any need to fight a war....cause you'd never win one. That's been the liberal agenda for a long time...servitude, not gumption. Maybe that's why there are more conservatives who believe in firearms, since it's been a self sufficiency and fight for what's right type of thinking that created our government in the first place....Maybe you would have been a good Tory, Patty....
  20. Back before the ban on the big ones....say in the 80's...48lb...still good eating...
  21. Same also almost....M60 w/CT....and even worse is two old guys with their wheelguns...
  22. I disagree....one shot with .44 and there is no more .... Make your shots count.....one...one...one...no higher math is necessary.
  23. how reliable...
