  1. Are you just TRYING to bait Subdeacon Joe? (If so, I approve).
  2. Sounds like the same mindset as THE Ohio State University. Why? It's not like there's more than one.
  3. The only reason I ever tried to get out of Jury Duty was because of work. I couldn't afford to miss the time. I actually did serve on one Jury. They even made me Foreman. Now that I'm retired, I wouldn't mind it,
  4. I knew a kid when I was in the Marines who carried an Instamatic camera with him all the time. About every third pic was one that he took of himself.
  5. One of the times I was called was a high profile murder trial. They gave us a questionnaire to fill out. When it got to the part about hobbies, group memberships, and other activities, I put down that I was a member of the NRA, Gun Owners, of America, the Single Action Shooting Society, and a follower of Rush Limbaugh. Never heard back from them.
  6. I carry my reloads in a Speed Strip in the watch pocket of my jeans. Not fast, but faster than loose in a pocket.
  7. From Ammoland. https://www.ammoland.com/2023/01/henry-rifles-first-semi-auto-the-9mm-homesteader/#axzz7rDyHE0BH Read more: https://www.ammoland.com/2023/01/henry-rifles-first-semi-auto-the-9mm-homesteader/#ixzz7rDzAjjE4 Under Creative Commons License: Attribution Follow us: @Ammoland on Twitter | Ammoland on Facebook U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve been a lifelong fan of Henry Rifles ever since I shot the Goldenboy – but the Homesteader 9mm is something totally different. While every other rifle made by Henry is either lever-action or break-action, the new 9mm Homestead is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed pistol caliber carbine. But it’s more than just that, and after spending some time with it at SHOT Show 2023, I have some great news to share. Henry Homesteader 9mm The Homestead is a magazine-fed semi-automatic carbine chambered in – you guessed it – 9mm parabellum. It feeds from proprietary magazines, Glock-pattern magazines, or a combination of SIG and S&W magazines, depending on the model. Under the hood, the Homesteader is a direct blowback design. So there are very few moving components, making the gun reliable and very robust, and resilient to dirt and carbon buildup. My personal experience with the gun at Media Day at the Range in Las Vegas was very positive. The gun ran without any issues whatsoever despite the fierce wind blowing fine sand in the action for hours, and it was remarkably accurate in my very limited experience. Other noteworthy features include a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle for use with sound suppressors, aperture sights mounted directly to the barrel, and a receiver that comes from the factory drilled and tapped for a scope rail. MSRP is reported to be around $820, depending on what configuration a shooter chooses. I, for one, am very interested in the gun, as it feels like a more old-fashioned version of the Ruger PC9 that still retains the classic looks of Henry’s lever-action rifles. Hopefully, I’ll have one to review in my hands soon, so I can give you guys and gals the full rundown in the near future. Guns are being boxed up now, and should be available for purchase soon.
  8. They were probably afraid that you'd take them up on it and scare the women back to their husbands. No, you're thinking of Male Strippers.
  9. Ever since I first saw it, one of my Go To lines has been, "We ain't waitin' on me!"
  10. Glucosamine and Chondroitin has helped my hips a LOT. Before I started the stuff, some days there wasn't a comfortable position I could be in. Sitting, standing, OR laying down, my hips just HURT. The last time I looked at Walmart, they had Glucosamine Sulfate and Potassium Chloride. After 2 weeks, I could tell the difference, and found some Glucosamine and Chondroitin. I'm sticking with that. I just wish I could find something for my shoulders.
  11. I got tired of buying a new electric can opener every year or so, so now one of THESE lives mounted to a kitchen cabinet. I've also carried a Vicronox Tinker with a can opener since I was a kid. It worked well on C-Rat cans.
  12. Maybe you should get one of THESE, and just carry it like a Mares Leg.
  13. The way I figure it, you should only need one shot for the snake, with the derringer, you have 2 dedicated for just that purpose. Otherwise I agree about them. A "J" frame size revolver is smaller, and a micro .380 smaller still, both with more firepower. With your plan, if the 410 isn't what's called for, you have to skip past them to get to the .45s. Same thing with the .357. I think that I could draw whichever pistol I needed, and not have all that to worry about. To be fair though, I've never shot a derringer with a 410, so I can't comment on how that would go. They make them with a large grip, so it might not be a concern.
  14. Personally, I think that "The Judge" and anything like it is just stupid, an answer in search of a question. I would keep carrying my .357 with whatever load you're carrying now, and get the aforementioned Bond Derringer for the .410, and carry it too when snakes might be encountered.
  15. I was wondering about her, but didn't want to bring it up. How did THAT go? Has she come to her senses? At least a little bit?
  16. And then sit there complaining that they're not making any money.
  17. Then there's always Sheila Jackson Lee. When being given a tour of NASA and the Mars Rover, (she's a congresscritter from Texas), she asked if it could go over to where the astronauts landed back in 1969.
  18. As much sense as anything ELSE I've read here, anyway.
