    A personal comment concerning state reciprocity and concealed carry laws.   If traveling to another state, better check their laws too because some things are different such as restaurants, bars, etc.


    Had a good thing happen to me once concerning gun laws.  We had CCH permits and I had one.  Tennesse had CCH permits too but our two states did not have reciprocity for the permits.  I needed to travel to Nashville for temp work at an industrial factory area.  Wanted to take my pistol too.  Wrote a note to Tennessee Attorney General Office asking for permission to conceal carry in Tennessee.  Within an hour, the proper office at the Tennessee Attorney General office sent me back a letter giving me permission.  Told me to carry the letter with me, bring my gun and welcome to Tennessee!  


    Many states like California are different thinkers about things like this.  

    California doesn't THINK about anything.  It's one colossal leftist knee jerk.

    Well, since all so-called civilized life in the west was derived from people moving west from the east the eastern method of counting points on a deer is correct. The western method is just a bunch of brats trying to be different. :P

    We moved west about the same time we threw the British out...and pretty much for the same reasons.  We don't want to do it someone else's way.


    And you voluntarily moved back east so you are able to do it their way and have someone to blame when it all goes south.


    Pity.  Pity.  We miss you out here. :D

  3. I never liked the Honeymooners because Gleason was the kind of person I was taught to stand up to.


    After I got married I realized my father-in-law WAS Ralph Kramden.  We suffered a taught relationship until he died.  He did tell me once that the only reason he didn't run me off was because I was the only man that dated his daughters who stood up to him.....on the night we eloped and he threatened to shoot me.  I told him the first shot was his and after that if he hadn't killed me I'd kill him

    Reading Harry Potter, again. When Harry produces a patronus, it's a stag. Because when his father changed into an animal, he became a stag.


    In India they collect the fallen horns from stags and use them to make pistol grips.


    But we don't have stags. We have bucks. All our little deer - whitetail, blacktail, mule - are bucks. An elk is a bull, and so is a moose. No stags.


    Just wonder why.

    Because.  Just because.   :huh:

    I spent the better part of the day reviewing and selecting a new Medicare plan . My old plan dropped some of the things I needed most and went up on co-pays for specialists and physical therapy.


    I’m exceedingly grateful that I don’t have to do that every day!!!


    At least I got to have a good meal afterwards.  Schoolmarm treated us both to a late lunch at Red Lobster.  Lonster, scallops, and shrimp along with mac and cheese and seasoned rice!  

    STILL!!  I hate this Medicare stuff enough that I’m aggravated with dealing with it this morning!!!

    Next time you go to red Lobster take me along.  I don't much care for lobster, but most of the rest of their meals are excellent...and I can eat their biscuits by the peck.

    I rarely use Amazon, I prefer to go to brick and mortar stores. I get cash back on my Discover and also on a Capital One card. 

    So do I but so damn few stores carry most of what I want.


    I just used my Amazon points for the first time.


    Wranglers dress slacks....no cost. Scheduled to be delivered on the 9th.  Couldn't find any at all locally

    I’ve seen ripped jeans at  my local mall for quite a few years now! It’s been a fashion thing for quite a while. No surprise here!:blink:

    at's so "po' folks" can be classy, too.  :P


    We were poor (by some peoples' standards) but Mom would have died of embarrassment if we had looked like that.  Patched and repaired was okay.  That meant you were unable to buy better.  Worn out, full of holes (cut, slashed, torn, or worn through) meant you or your mother were lazy or inept).

  9. I had a Cooper .36 Navy double action.  I traded it to Ray Taylor, owner of The Flintlock, for a Whitney Burgess .45-70 rifle.  The rifle was later stolen and I wish I had both of those guns back.  


    Both were solid 85% guns and the little Cooper was a lot of fun to shoot....except it had to be de-fouled after almost every cylinder was fired.


    The big Whitney was one of the first lever action .45-70 rifles and was very accurate considering the crude sights.

    Yes, we called it the “Dixie cup” hat or cover. 

    I was told that it was a Dixie cup when out friend's son came home from the pacific with his friends in 1946 or1947.  I was about five years old and have called them Dixie cups ever since.


    Once in awhile I've heard the called Popeyes, too.

    I had a little dog, one of the most lovable, peaceful, and pleasant creatures ever.....but she hated that insult to her person and she fought it every time.  She lived almost 17 years and never quit fighting the thermometer until the end.

    Subcontract jail to Turkey, Mexico, Iran, China, Russia....?  Several benefits


    Lower cost

    Incentive to correct behavior

    Learn about civil rights in other countries



    Can't do it, it would be cruel and unusual or some violation of civil rights.....


    Long time ago they sent you to America or Australia :rolleyes:


    Then there was the option to join the army, but I doubt the army wants them.


    Would you want one of those curs beside you in a hole during a battle?


    That was my argument when my Mom told me they should send all the hippies and druggies to be beside me in 'Nam.
