Re: Hello to all. Been a while. 2 questions:

Hey Rev; I figured that you may have done something different with phones; as I recall, you've never been particularly fond of carrying one around, lol. These days, I don't keep mine handy, either. But, I do try to look at it, once or twice a day, in case I've missed something. [ Post made via Mobil...

Re: New-ish to VA

Welcome back to Virginia! Sadly, I don't believe that the Commonwealth is in as good shape as you may have left it. Lots of changes, many for the worse. And, welcome to the forum. I'm a few hours away from Charlottesville, and I'm afraid that I don't know anything about the range situation, there. I...

Re: Get ready

Living out in the country does have its benefits. More time, more warning... Also, your neighbors are a little more likely to be prepared, as well, and have a rather self-reliant mindset, so neighbors are more likely to band together, as opposed to turn on each other.

Re: Best option for current, off-the-shelf 3" .357? King Cobra v

Well, were it I, I'd be inclined to go with a Ruger GP100. I like the brand. I have an older Security Six, that shoots well, especially with updated grips. It's very solidly constructed. Based on my experience, conversations with other general Ruger owners, and countless reviews of various Ruger pro...

Re: Hello to all. Been a while. 2 questions:

Lol, yep. Surprise chickens. The wife went out with her mother, came back with day-old chicks. Neither of us knew anything about raising them, and I had absolutely no place to put them. I was... less than amused...

Re: Heather Mac Donald talks policing

I note that YouTube sited Wu-Flu as a reason for oddities in their review process, which I find to be particularly silly. Internet based work can be done from home, and hiring extra people to "review" stuff would be fairly simple, as well. Even if there was a rocky area, a couple of months...

Re: Hello to all. Been a while. 2 questions:

I haven't seen Rev in a while. I sent him a text, back in December, but never heard back. I hope that he and his family are doing well. Jake seems to have answered the 2nd question. Speaking of Jake: Hey, Jake; good to see that you're still amongst the living. It's been fairly quiet around here, lat...

Re: How is everybody doing ?

I've been staying pretty busy. The garden is coming along, nicely. I've got some tomatoes coming in, so I'm pretty happy about that. Got lettuce ready to eat, and some radishes. The wife showed up with a few freshly hatched chicks, a few weeks ago. That, of course, was completely unplanned, and I ha...

Re: Minneapolis

And I'm feeling pretty glad that I'm not out on the road, anymore. Things are getting a bit silly.

Re: Another article about liberals learning about their gun laws

@Ironbear: I'm sure that you're right. Of course, suddenly dealing a steady stream of idiots who are having tantrums over policies for which they voted... while the first 3 or 4 times might be amusing, I would imagine that the urge to smack that particular brand of idiot (repeatedly, about the head,...

Re: New Preppers ?

@Ironbear: Thanks for the links. I hadn't seen the Powerline piece, but it supports things that I have seen. I like that doctor; he seems just the kind of guy that our Founding Fathers intended to hold public office. And, I may go on and order that book, too. Seems to hold a lot of valuable informat...

Re: Another article about liberals learning about their gun laws

It's a bit difficult to muster up much sympathy for those folks. The gun shop workers, though... it must be right tough to remain professional and courteous, or keep a straight face, through the duration of these transactions. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://vagunforum.net/images/mobile.png

Re: New Preppers ?

Yep, I'm off the road. Nothing bad happened to prompt that change; mainly, I wanted to spend more time with family, tend to my house, and pursue some other interests. OTR driving isn't a good permanent career choice if family is important to you (Though, it's a great way to build up some capital for...

Re: New Preppers ?

Well, I am making moves towards self-sufficiency. I've spent the past couple of days doing gardening type stuff. That's a new thing for me. Though, this virus thing had nothing to do with it; the virus really got serious, around the same time that I came off the road, which was a fairly sudden decis...

Well, This Is Novel

It appears that the anti-gun, Democrat governor of Illinois has declared gun stores to be essential to public safety, and has exempted them from mandatory shutdown: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/03/21/illinois-governor-lists-gun-stores-as-essential-exempts-them-from-forced-shutdown/?fbclid...

A Sad Truth Learned...

Breaking News! Well, news to those that are suddenly developing an interest in firearms... it turns out that you can NOT, in fact, purchase guns online, and have them shipped directly to your house. Of course, here, we've all been acutely aware of this, but it seems that some folks are surprised to ...

Re: Verizon fios cancels hunting and shooting channels

My internet provider also offers television and telephone services; I use neither. It all comes through the same line, anyway. So, I use a Roku Box for TV, and a VOIP service that costs something like $100 a year. Since adding phone and TV through my internet service is something like an extra $75 a...

Re: How to fight the latest push for gun control

Rather than seeing pieces of States break off to join other existing States, I think that I'd prefer seeing them break off to create smaller States... (again, I THINK... not sure, though) The idea behind my thinking that, is that a smaller State should be able to maintain control of itself, better. ...

Re: Virginia Assault Weapons Ban (HB961) failed in Committee

Marc, I was completely unaware that your wife is ill! Either this is the first you've mentioned it here, or I just completely missed it. Regardless, I'm sorry to hear that, and I do hope that it's not serious. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://vagunforum.net/images/mobile.png
