    "You're carrying a gun? Why? Why do you feel the need to carry a gun? Are you that scared that you need to carry a gun to feel protected? Are your man parts so little that you need to carry a gun to make yourself feel like a man?"

     

    Unfortunately my man parts aren't massive enough to help me fend off a pair of knife-wielding thugs half my age. Anyone who expects me to gets their idea of fighting from watching Bruce Lee movies. I'm not Bruce Lee.

  2. I've lost count of the guys who swore they were issued a Singer 1911 while in the military. How did they know it was a Singer? Because, duh, it said so right on the side, dummy.

     

    Problem is, they did NOT say "Singer" on them and there are more idiots bragging that they carried one then there were Singer 1911s made. :rolleyes:

  3. They continue to close off forests and gravel pits to shooting here in WA. At the same time existing gun ranges are constantly under threat of being shut down as housing developments spring up right next door, and soccer moms freak out thinking their kid will get hit by a stray bullet on the way to school (or maybe they just hate the noise). Pretty soon there will be virtually nowhere you can legally shoot a firearm.

  4. How about the school buses you get behind that have to stop every %$#&! 50 feet to let another kid off right at their doorstep? When I was a kid I actually had to walk a half-mile in the dark to the nearest bus stop. Same going back... get off the bus (even in the pouring rain) and huff it another half-mile home. I guess they figured I was too ugly for anyone to want to abduct so it was okay.

  5. It's just a matter of time before these electronic gizmos conspire to kill us, i.e. turning up the hot water while we're showering or locking us out of our house during a blizzard. We already have killer drones out there hunting down people without human intervention.

     

    Skynet is here.

    It’s out for delivery! The bummer was I had to have it shipped to my LGS. My C&R expired two weeks ago and I haven’t gotten it back from BATF yet.  :angry:

     

    Well, at least you're not in WA state where you would likely have to wait 3-4 weeks waiting for Big Brother to give you permission to pick it up.

    I saw a situation a year or two back where a man needed to transfer a handgun from California to Montana. The California FFL charged the guy $55 to log it into his book and ANOTHER $55 to log it out, then the poor sap had to pay a THIRD transfer fee when it got to Montana. All told, at least $130 in transfer fees for a Ruger LC9s, and they were selling for... what, about $350, new, before this panic.

     

    Local gun shops often get tired of people buying online and are determined to make them pay, one way or the other. Same goes with other types of sales like consignments. I wanted to sell a $250 Taurus on consignment and the LGS told me they charge either $100 or 15% of the value, whichever was more. Ummm, no. :rolleyes:

    So why did you use an FFL to send it out?  Were you dealing with a recipient who wouldn't accept from individuals?

     

    Correct. When an FFL refuses to accept a gun from me I have to ship it to them via my local FFL. I get charged for a transfer as well as the gun buyer on the other end.

    Can you imagine being the worker putting the last of those stones in place, and the foreman runs up and says "Wait, hold on a minute! The preist says we're about 100 yards off-target and and need to move this whole thing..." :blink:

    It is not too clear why so many actors, that make their living with action/adventure movies, that include them using all manner of firearms, can support anyone that is anti-firearm, anti-second amendment. That sort of smells of hypocrisy.  

     

    Not necessarily. Being an actor doesn't mean you endorse the mindset of your character. We all remember Archie Bunker, right? Well Carrol O' Conner was actually a staunch liberal. Sylvester Stallone playing Rambo by itself shouldn't matter whether he's pro or anti-gun, but the fact that he is a gun enthusiast (he has a large collection and his own private gun range) yet is a vocal supporter of the Brady campaign is what makes him a hypocrite.

  11. John Wayne represented a romanticized version of the Old West. Clint Eastwood portrayed its grittier, darker side. I agree they would've been like oil and water together.

    .........   so, "Men in Black" isn't a documentary ....... ?   :huh:

     

    I think Cyrus had one of those red light pen thingies flashed in his face. :huh:

     

    I'm with Forty Rod on this one. The universe is at least 13 billion years old, and like Carl Sagan said there are beellions and beellions of planets out there. And we are supposed to think that intelligent life has existed only on this one planet, and only in the last 10,000 years? In my view there is no question that life does or at least has existed elsewhere. The only question is whether they're smart enough to build spaceships capable of traveling this far without having at least one software glitch.

  13. I've had to deal with FFLs who refused to ship C&R eligible firearms to me, so it's not just the issue with receiving guns from individuals. Many FFLs simply don't know the laws well enough and they'd rather be safe than sorry. The last guy I talked to wouldn't take my C&R at first, but after I showed him that only California has a prohibition against C&R holders he finally agreed.

     

    I've sent a few guns directly to FFLs and been refused a few times as well. When I'm refused I make the buyer of the firearm cover my local FFL's transfer fee since I refuse to get dinged for their ignorance.
