    You guys are Great!

    I've really enjoyed my time here, and you guys are among the best I've met on the Web since starting browsing in 1994 (UNIX/DOS since 1986). I've learned a lot, posted some hopefully helpful comments, but I'm moving on. (I'm spending too much time here, now that I've gotten past 'basic handgun...

    Buying a firearm and sticker shock - a common sense approach?

    One thing I learned in buying things is that you have to look further than the sticker price. 1. Generally, to start out, look at low, medium, high prices on an item and buy the medium; 2. Look at the price of something and realize that you will spend many times the cost in supplies (bikes...

    The Myth of Situational Awareness?

    One of the things that makes me laugh when watching shows like 'Personal Defense TV' and other pretty good shows on firearms is this. They show the drill where the guy shoots his target, then goes to low ready and looks to left and right, and/or pivots a little and looks behind and then...

    We want our senior citizens/retirees to be armed!

    I mentioned this topic buried in another thread but I think it deserves its own post. My friend remarked to me that she felt (and heard her brother say) that we should enable our senior citizens to carry, and carry openly, because this is the segment of the population that is more educated...

    Stolen from the New Yorker 'Caption this' contest: "Now, that's a Man who supports the 2nd Amendment" (woulda been my caption, lol)

    A site I found - revealing

    I don't know how I got this site to come up because I wasn't searching for it, but now I know I'm not a racist! It was an anti-African American site with the n-word in the title. I looked around and after reading the titles to some threads actually found myself, to my astonishment, feeling...

    Are we allowed by board rules to petition a member be banned?

    I'd like to get permission from the board owners to petition or vote ban a particular user. I believe we ALL know to whom I'm referring. If it's within board rules, I'd like to put it to a member vote. I'd say we'd only do it if there was a vast majority, because censuring a person doesn't...

    Spotsylvania Man Robbed by (Cowardly) Gunmen Outside of Home

    Three men armed with at least two handguns robbed a man as he returned home from work in Spotsylvania County. (Police urge citizens to report any three armed men) (LOL) http://fredericksburg.patch.com/articles/man-robbed-at-gunpoint-outside-of-home Question is, why is the law so stacked in...

    The Wis-dumb of Pogo

    Remember that comic strip by Walt Kelly? How true this is. I'm now wondering if most of the negative aspects of human behavior are simply that we do not believe we deserve to be happy. Thus we 'self-sabotage'. Look at your behaviors, how many of them are 'counter-productive'. Bad habits. Bad...

    Scammed by a Used Car dealer

    This isn't a tale of woe so much as a wake up call. Man's inhumanity to man in a very real sense. My friend (I won't call her my partner because people seem confused by that) bought a 2004 used Ford Truck (Ranger Edge). She was looking for a particular color and low mileage. Because of this...

    Fredericksburg Military Surplus - new store downtown.

    We were driving by the main drag on Princess Anne Street and spotted a new store. Corky's Military Surplus. Looked a bit kitschy with the ads painted on the window, but planned a return trip. Went by today and WOW!! Lots of gear, full line of Propper and 5.11 clothing, knives, holsters, packs...
