I mentioned to a co-worker today my daughter's boyfriend bought his first gun, a Beretta 92F chambered in 9 mm. My co-worker said, "I wouldn't be happy to know my daughter's boyfriend just bought a gun." My reply, "I don't think he's going to shoot her." Not to mention she knows I have guns. Does she think I'm going to shoot my kids or their friends? Sheesh.

Anyway, this young man has been to the range a lot and rented guns to shoot. I took him to the range once and let him shoot my guns until he was tired. We had a great time. He has not shot my P238 yet and now I get to shoot his new gun.

I'd be happy to know that. Responsible young man + gun = safe daughter.

That, and I'd make sure that he knew that if he ever did anything to harm her, he'd never hear or see it coming.

I think what goes through an anti gun liberal's mind is that people can not be trusted, especially when they are upset about something. They think that if someone owns a gun, and they get mad, that they'll shoot someone. You can thank the media for creating that lie.

Please, take it as a compliment. Beautiful, smart (know that from your posts), you work on trucks for a living....yeah, you'll get nothing but compliments from me.

And I feel the same way about a sport bike. I tell my friends all the time "it would only take about a week, then I'll get brave and do something stupid again." (I think my next bike is going to be a Huffy. Maybe a Mongoose )

Yesterday I was waiting at the walmart sporting goods counter for some service, like always. Another customer and I struck up a conversation about ammo prices. Then he said Obama is putting a 10~ 15% tax on top of what is already there. I told him that I have not heard of that. Told him about this forum and that I am confident that some hell raising would be going on in the threads if it were true.

I feel like I am more informed with better information for being on this forum. I would like to thank everyone on here for the contribution of thought and facts.

Now what about this tax obama has put on ammo! Mad! :-):-:-)

This man is a very good man. Believe me, I'm tough when I need to be. My daughter 'dated' a guy who hit her and was very abusive. His name for me was "F'ing B". We were in court monthly at the least. My daughter was afraid to leave him for fear of a beating or worse. It was a looong, tough fight but I haven't seen this ass in a couple years.

Oh, and I'd be sure he'd 'see it coming' because I'd torture him before I finished him off.

Buddie came home to 3 black dudes robbing him ... again . He whips out the 357 snubby and proceeds to unload , missing them but got one at GP till the boys in blue got there . Kinda good he missed since they were retreating . Also in a crowded neighborhood , wont be surprised if some homeowners find some mystery holes this weekend

That's good, we need more good people with guns. They make the world a slightly safer place.

That's horrible, I'm glad he is no longer around.
