    I like them because they're simple & reliable.
    I'm not going to list what I used to own... mostly lost in a tragic kayaking accident on Lake Michigan anyway.



    Show us the multitude of problems in the states which don't impose government interference on the right to carry, openly or otherwise... problems which could have been solved by citizens having some sort of training.


    If you are going to speak or write, you should be schooled enough to NOT make flagrant mistakes of English usage.
    People should get at least a 700 on the SAT before being allowed to post in a public forum or write their elected representatives.
    Seems pretty silly, doesn't it?
    What other rights would you like to turn into government-controlled privileges?


    Yes.
    You're abusing it & committing a crime*, but freedom of speech is still a Constitutionally protected civil right.
    * disorderly conduct, possibly assault

    Ummmm, what? I think her comments about the SAT were sarcastic saying that we don't require people to pass some sort of training/testing before exercising their First Ammendment rights.

    We also don't require tests/training to go to church, etc....

    I could be wrong about her intentions, but that's how I read it.

    I have no horse in your new found race, but I for one, would like it a lot if you could tone it down a little.

    I had to look it up, bronies are adult men that like to watch My Little Pony. http://www.neatorama.com/2011/06/11/...y-little-pony/

    I haven't watched TV for more than ten years, seeing this, thank God.

    I'm not a Brony, but I know what they are and that they exist. I knew there was a rainbow one. I guess it's not technically a unicorn, so it probably wasn't the most appropriate response. Oh well. Back to the discussion at hand.

    Which one's that, you mean the elitism of the SAT hierarchy? Some here apparently think that a 700 SAT is adequate for public comment.

    TLDR

    Again, and MKEgal can comment here, I think she was pointing out that we don't require licenses, training, etc... for other Constiutionally protected rights instead of suggesting a minimum score for public discourse Hyperbolae?

    ... ...I find it funny (not really) that a newbie with 28 posts telling a well respected member of this group with over 2,000 posts to shut the F... up. Hey dude.... Maybe you should be the one shutting the fu.. up. Those that know me know what I used to carry and why, before I lost all my firearms is a tragic high speed boating accident.

    I carry...

    For OC, a Glock 20 10mm or my Glock 21 converted over to 50GI. Because I'm a Glock guy and I like a lot of boom for my buck. I also have a SS and gold Taurus 1911 38Super I carry when I want to dress up in OC, lol. For CC I have a S&W 380 Bodyguard in my wallet holster (I like the laser sight), and a Taurus PT740 Slim 40s&w in my ankle holster (because the smallest 45ACP is still just too punishing on my leg and ankle). I also usually have my 5 shot Rossi SS 44Special in my inside the pocket holster in my front pocket when I'm in CC only mode. I believe in always having a back-up gun, as well as a back-up to my back-up.

    Take it easy brother TyGuy. We are all rowing the same boat. let us not beat each other up. MKEgal has been charged and we all need to do our part to help her out. Besides she has knowledge and experience and so do the rest of you. I need the knowledge you are posting. Let's not become like the 3 stooges. I once read a quote in my Bible: "If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand." We are in this together. I can see that many of you are leaders in the OC movement. I am just following along and learning.

    Gee, away from the computer for a little while & my rep is being attacked by one of our newest members.

    Nah.
    As long as she plays by the rules she's welcome to post whatever.
    Apparently that didn't happen, 'cause the offensive comment was deleted.

    And if she is new, how to know the rep of people who have been here longer?
    I mean, there are people with more posts than our newbie who have terrible reps, people who have been banned multiple times, etc.

    I admit, I was a bit rude in the beginning of my reply to her. Truthful, but rude. Happens so rarely...
    And apparently the sarcasm didn't come through the interwebs very well, as she took it as a criticism of her abilities.

    I'm glad someone's sarcasm meter is working, & I've adjusted my previous post so that hopefully my intent will be clear to others.

    ETA: BTW, the 700 SAT score was referring to the writing portion, not the overall score. Way back when I took it the max was only 1600, & only had math & English. They've expanded in the last umpty years. Wonder if it's any better predictor of success in college than it used to be?

    I got your back! Sarcasm in typed material is difficult sometimes, but I did catch that.

    Yeah, when I took the SAT the max was 1600 (800 in each section). I think it's now 2400 (still 800 in each section).

    maybe i read the ops post differently

    i went with why you carry what you carry , not why you carry at all

    it doesn't matter to me why you choose to carry a gun , it is your God given right

    Ruger LC9 , because it is big enough to shoot well and small enough to conceal decent , and light enough to carry well

    as for my reason to carry , i will go with , Because it is my God given right , recognized and secured under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America , and further identified and secured By the Wisconsin state constitution.

    as for ammo , Remington golden sabers , I had them they fed and functioned without fail and shot point of aim , and the available tests showed it to expand well http://mousegunaddict.blogspot.com/2...golden_23.html

    I disagree. I think it is your God given right to defend yourself and that modern firearms are the most effective means to do this. Of course your ability to keep and bear firearms is specifically protected with the Constitution. 500 years ago people defended themselves with swords, and perhaps in 500 years there will be laser pistols. Let's not confuse our inherrant human right to self defense with the ability to own a specific tool. I wouldn't want to bring a sword to a gun fight or a gun to laser fight.

    Lasers, pew pew!
