    When you play the scene in your head of how one day you would have to defend yourself, I never really see myself having to shoot 15 yearolds. I guess if they are throwing their lives away so be it.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I was talking to a maker from Dayton at the gunshow Saturday. We discussed how the area had changed over the years. I suppose I should have seen it coming.

    Country people have a tendency to be way too anxious to welcome newcomers. That's what we get!

    A maker in Dayton, you say? Maker of what?

    I drive through there at least three times a week, and live just far enough away to avoid the poultry plant smell.

    Depending on what it is they make, you might want to PM me his information.

    I blame JMU.

    Long rifles although he specialized in silver and tin smithing I think. That was the Southern Longrifle show. If you weren't a rifle maker, you weren't there.

    JMU helped and the poultry plant has always been a sore spot....it was 81 that really did it.
    Interstate highways ruin rural areas. Pipelines to Hell!

    Fine then, I'll just take my ball and stay home.

    Kidding. Actually, I looked it up, and it was in Williamsburg, anyway. I don't much care to drive that far.

    A few friends of mine started it a couple of years ago. It gets better each year.

    If you're interested in Traditional longrifles, stop by the Farm Bureau in Harrisonburg, You've been there if I recall. The manager of the gun department is an avid collector/builder and has his own show every year.

    It's invitation only but he'll be glad to have you.

    You mean the Rockingham CoOp over on Grace? It's tax season, I've been showing my face around there again. It's where I spend my tax return.

    And actually, I have a friend that is into historical dog-locks. If that's anything like what you and your friends work with, I might have to let her know.

    That's the place.

    I'm not sure what a Dog Lock is but I expect it's close. I build a few flint locks but mostly caplocks. Once in a while I'll build a punt gun or swivel gun.
    I'm finishing a New England style half stock for my Grandson now.

    Awesome. Send me that guy's name, and I'll pass it to my friend later.

    In 1993, our family started out on a week's vacation to Panama City Beach in the panhandle of Florida. We spent all of about nine hours there then canceled our resevations because none of us cared for the place. So sometime after 10:00pm, wen headed out on our way to South Carolina and more happy times. After so much driving, we stopped at a rest stop off of route 10 near Tallahassee to take a much needed nap. We pulled around back and all of us went to sleep in the car. I had my Taurus PT92C in my lap just in case. About an hour later, we woke up and continued our journey.

    Three weeks later, four youth toughs who were hanging around that rest stop waiting for a victim got their chance. A British tourist and his lady pulled into the same area where we had napped. One of the little bastards, a 13-year old, approached their car and shot the man to death.

    So while I hope to never have to fire on anyone, age makes no difference to me. A 12 or 13 or 15 year old can kill you just as quickly and make you just as dead as a 27-year old.

    Unfortunately, the killers in the OP-supplied link are not likely to receive the death penalty and I think that is a crime itself. I know that if my son or daughter was murdered by some ruthless teenage maggot(s), I wouldn't want them breathing air any longer than absolutely necessary. As soon as they murdered, they gave up their right to live.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Si vis pacem, para bellum.
