    AWESOME!
    There's no one better at keeping you safe than yourself.
    Why do I have a bar in my home? Because it's cheaper to stock a bar than to get a DUI.

    Glad to hear this one ended well. I wish I'd had my scanner on last night to hear this actually happening.

    Me too, especially since this is just right down the road from my house....maybe a quarter mile. It's the same shopping center we do all our grocery shopping at.

    Yeah. Read some of the anti-gun commentary there.
    I gave 'em my $0.02 a couple of days ago.

    Howdy Folks!
    Is it me, or did some of the posts disappear from this thread. Prolly it's me!
    I thought there were several more posts in this thing that I no longer see.
    Could it be there is another thread on this topic?

    Blessings,
