    All I know is I've got to do something soon. I can't see this remaining a free and safe country for much longer.

    Even Espey seems to agree with me about buying a pistol. You know it's bad when me and him agree on the same thing.

    I can take a trip out there next weekend and show you a few revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, if you'd like. I just renewed my AAA and the Lincoln has new tires; or I could take the DeLorean, too.

    In any case, I have to pick up those fans from your house before DCS.

    They don't know how many houses have guns in them or how many people were killed or injured while intruding (especially in a lot of inner city areas ...NOBODY calls the PoPo. And guess where the bulk of it happens).
    A guns whole purpose is not to "kill or injure" intruders. That is only one of many, and to be used as a last resort at that. How the hell would one quantify the number of intruders who have been deterred simply from knowing a gun is probably (or might be) in a given house (or all those in certain areas). Those instances have the most significant number and aren't even included in that useless rhetorical left wing BS, true or not.
    ...guess we should get rid of showers, bath tubs and water itself (all in "top 5 causes of home deaths") now.

    It will be a good learning experience and I can get a kit to replace the trigger.
    Is Steve planning on visiting Russia? LOL (shoot anything you 'Putin' it)

    I was actually saying to my wife today I have to get a carry permit and a pistol before it will be impossible for me to legally have one. That's a legality I don't want to mess with.

    Personally, I carry a snubnose .38 most of the time; it's by my side every cross country trip.

    In all seriousness I haven't even seen the pics of Michael's new gun but I like the description he wrote about it. But it was like a few thousand wasn't it?
