Some folk are just stupid. No worries in this house. I'm smart enough to know that fire arms and adult beverages DO NOT go together!

Know what the laws are in your jurisdiction conditioning your right to self defense. A police officer told me once: Call 911 and report an armed home invasion, set the phone down but leave it on, shout out "I've called 911, I have a gun, get out of my house now," and then reduce the threat.

I believe in gun control as long as you define it as being able to hit what you aim at.

AR's and AK's have dried up around here. 223 ammo has really gone up in price. Bought a 1000 rounds two years ago for 170. and noticed it had gone to 340 a 1000.
