  1. Past hour
  2. I already have one of those connected to my garden hose.
  3. It’s finally here. The thing you’ve all been waiting for. The DNC’s platform for this election cycle, and boy does it look bad. Here are the absolutely batshit goals they’ve set going forward: mandating universal background checks, ending online gun and ammo sales, banning people from ownership for misdemeanor, nonviolent and speech-based offenses, and expanding the federal background check system. That’s not it, either. They want to prevent the manufacture and sale of commonly owned rifles and standard capacity magazines. They want to pay states to add licensing requirements for gun ownership and to establish kangaroo courts to deprive people of their property without due process. They want to require you to disarm yourself in your own home, and for firearms manufacturers to be sued for the criminal acts of other people. Policies like these don’t produce results, but they deprive people of their inherent right to protect themselves, their families, homes, and communities.
  4. During the 2019 session of the New Mexico Legislature, anti-gun Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and state lawmakers who were elected with the support of New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg rammed legislation through which criminalized the private sale of firearms, over the strong objections of law-abiding citizens and law enforcement. Opponents warned that the measure would be intrusive, ineffective and unenforceable. KRQE recently reported that in the year since that law went into effect on July 1, 2019, court records show no one has been charged with violating it. This should come as no surprise to those who fought against this legislation, warning that it would be ineffective and unenforceable. It certainly hasn't stopped or even slowed crime in the Duke City. Yet amidst the reporting on the state's failed so-called universal background check law, and even with the red flag gun confiscation law recently having taken effect, anti-gun members of the Albuquerque City Council are calling for MORE GUN CONTROL! That's right. This week, the Council's Finance & Government Operations Committee advanced Resolution 20-68 by Councilmembers Isaac Benton and Diane Gibson, which calls on the New Mexico Legislature to rewrite Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the New Mexico Constitution, rip out the state firearms preemption clause and put that enormously-significant change to a popular vote. The full Council will consider the resolution in the coming weeks. Preemption prevents a patchwork of different local firearms rules and regulations across the state. It helps ensure uniformity in gun laws wherever you live, work or travel, so that law-abiding citizens don't unknowingly run afoul of confusing and conflicting local gun restrictions. If gun control advocates get their way, New Mexico could become one of only five states in the nation without this important protection. Cities like Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces would be free to pass whatever type of gun control they wanted -- gun bans, magazine limits, licensing and registration schemes, prohibitions on carrying firearms on your person or in your car -- restrictions far beyond anything the New Mexico Legislature has already done or will do to your Second Amendment rights in the future. Please contact each of the members of the Albuquerque City Council and let them know you OPPOSE Resolution 20-68. NRA-ILA will alert you when this measure is considered by the full Council and whether/how you can state your position in-person at that Council meeting.

  5. Last month, the Trump Administration fixed a U.S. Department of State policy on suppressors that had kept American suppressor makers out of the international market for these hearing-safety devices. According to the NRA-ILA: “The Department of State has rescinded its April 18, 2002, firearms sound suppressor policy. This policy … restricted their export to only official end users such as government or military entities…. The old policy completely excluded American suppressor manufacturers from competing in foreign markets where firearm suppressors are perfectly legal. It was also based on the misguided idea that suppressors completely silence firearms and that similar suppressor technology isn’t already available in the rest of the world.” NRA-ILA also said, “This policy reversal is long overdue and just one more step the Trump administration has taken to help law-abiding gun owners and American manufacturers.” “I see this as pro-business and pro-America,” said Brandon Maddox, MBA and the founder of Silencer Central. “Now, the reality is that U.S. silencer makers are so highly regulated, it may be difficult for them to price competitively in the international marketplace; however, this change might increase manufacturing and sales volumes and reduce overall costs, which manufacturers could pass on to American consumers.” Never a group to pass up a chance to mis-represent anything to do with the Second Amendment, the gun-control group Brady: United Against Gun Violence used the change in policy as part of its recent fund-raising efforts. As an article in Townhall noted, a Brady fund-raising email claimed that this Trump administration change could lead to the deaths of U.S. troop stationed overseas: “The harm is clear: This [suppressor] repeal will increase the risk that U.S. service members will be shot or killed with American-made guns and accessories. This repeal is immoral. It’s unpatriotic. It’s lethal.” “It’s also complete BS,” wrote Mark Oliva, director of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. “Brady should learn to conduct a basic fact check. Even checking Wikipedia would suffice.” It is true, Oliva confirmed to A1F.com, that the original Department of State policy banning suppressor exports cited—among other things—that U.S.-made suppressors might be used against U.S. servicemen and women. “Of course, back then [2002], everything was done in the name of anti-terror, so it was the politically expedient thing to do,” Oliva said. “But it wasn’t true then and it’s not true now.” As he noted in his Townhall article, “A quick internet search could easily reveal that suppressors are not just legal for use in foreign countries, some actually require their use. In Finland and France, suppressors are available over the counter. The notion that the rest of the world is devoid of suppressors because U.S. companies could not export them is preposterous.” Oliva is also a retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant with 25 years of service, including tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, Haiti, Albania and Zaire, so he was speaking from this experience. “Brady’s ‘do it for the troops’ assertion would be laughable if they weren’t so serious in their outright dishonesty,” said Oliva. “Brady isn’t doing anything about illicit international arms trade. They’re only out to deny law-abiding Americans their God-given rights. They don’t care how unscrupulous they are in that goal.” The anti-gun extremists truly don’t care, even when at issue is a product that actually provides a public-health benefit like hearing protection.
  6. The guy with the busted fingers was Ben Cooper, one of the real life fast guns and a very nice man. He visited the SASS range (Cajon Cowboys) at Gem Ranch once. He was a friend ofSammy Davis Jr. and taught him to draw and shoot.
  7. Form follows function. Get a deck of Federal Regulation cards. Get another deck of Aerodynamics cards. Shuffle them together. There are only so many hands that can be dealt. Aero helps the all-important fuel economy. Manufacturers have corporate fuel economy regs to meet. The shape of a rain drop tops aero forms. Safety regulations dictate bumper location and strength. Crumple zones required at both ends. Side impact requirements dictate much about the cars appearance. Side curtain air bags limit window size and shape. Etc, etc, etc. The true wonder is that there is any "design" left at all.
  8. I lived in southern California for forty years before the Great Escape. Used to have a lot of very good Mexican places, but it got to where every time any business went under or moved a generic "Mexican" place would open up. Many would close after a few months and reopen with a new name, but the same menu and staff. Taco Bell and Dell Taco are okay if you're in a hurry but they are about as real Mexican food as Chef Boyardi is Italian. I find it strange that this was the case n SoCal, but here in northern Arizona , with a very small percentage of Hispanics and a total population of the four cities area of maybe a quarter million, we have a dozen pretty good Mexican food places from walk -ins to full blown restaurants with real cloth napkins, fine tableware, and all the trimmings.
  9. There's more lefties that are ambidextrous than righties, my son is a lefty and plays guitar right handed and very good I may add. He does a few other things righty but most left.

  11. Don't get your toothpaste and Cortisone mixed up. You'll find your teeth don't itch and your crotch smells minty fresh.
  12. This is true. I work on Saturdays at a gun store. Its AMAZING the number of new gun owners. I also teach CCW classes, and they are all full, and we are putting more on the books to accomodate everyone. This new gun owner thing in another large reason there is an ammo shortage.
  13. Red Robin, at least in our area, asks how pink you want it in the middle!!
  14. What kind of websites are you visiting?
  15. Yeah I never thought I would be walking around town packing a gun (CC) and wearing a mask.
  16. Lug soles? Think "Waffle Stompers" !
  17. Remove barrel to load... release trigger to fire... single shot... WHAT QUACKERY!
  18. Wiki says Chuck Connors batted left and threw left as a pro baseball player. He considered "Lefty" as a nickname but settled on "Chuck" because he did not like his given name, Kevin. But, in his death scene in "The Big Country" he is holding the revolver in his right hand. Camera angle demand? Ambidextrous? Good actor in any case.
