Is the pine pollen kicking where you guys live? A buddy of mine described driving into a yellow fog that his headlights would hardly penetrate as the wind kicked up the pine pollen. Nothing like some tree spooge to get the sinuses going.

had a bad dream a few nights ago. was in a tense situation and could not get my firearm drawn and racked before i got shot. dream happened a few different times in the same night, and in different settings or locations but the outcome was the same. i would be in mid racking of my slide and bam get shot.... im now giving some thought to being condition 1 more often.

My first thought was "start carrying a revolver", but maybe you just need a double barreled shotgun, no slide to rack.

Biden-approved!

I have a similar dream where I have the drop on the BG and no matter how hard I pull the trigger the damned thing won't fire, I re-rack the slide, check the safety and I still can't get it to fire. A very annoying dream.

Yep. Just washed my car today. The thing that pisses me the **** off is these damned **** tards that see a brand new car with pollen on it and they have to draw titties and cooters and write stupid obscene and offensive **** all over it. I drop off and pick my kid up from a ****ing elementary school in that car. Let me catch another little bastard in the act. Not to mention, rubbing dust around all over it is hell on paint.

I feel if you are going to have to rack it should be for a range weapon not a self protection weapon.

I have a model 66-1 in my night safe and there are 6 rounds, yes it is more accurate if fired single action but I'm not to bad double action.

When I went to Semi auto for concealed carry I started with a bodyguard 380 with one in the chamber - - - it is double action only and I can live with that but I feel 6+1 is OK but wanted more.

I now CC a 6906 with 12+1 and the first round is double action but the rest are single action like my duty 5906 which is 15+1 - - - I can use the 15 round mags in the 6906 but the 12 round will not work for the 5906 for obvious reasons.

I still have the 1911A1 that my father carried in North Africa in WWII which would require racking or carrying "Cocked & Locked" but I do not carry it for CC - - - shoot it about once a year then back in the safe!

A little blood splatter near the trunk might help, maybe a bit of a Tshirt caught in the trunk to clarify.

My mother and I were on vacation once. We were at a kayak rental place, and while we were out side, about 10-15 people decided they would swarm around the truck and actually get into the bed. The **** almost hit the fan when we came back out. Who the heck does that?
BTW, if you saw that truck, you'd completely understand. 2004 Silverado, single cab short wheel base. Charcoal grey, and sparkled in the sunlight. Even had a flowmaster in it. To put it simply, it was NICE.
She just had a wreck and totaled that truck. Other than the damage from the wreck, the insurance guy said it only looked 6 months old.

I have had similar dreams about the gun failing . Except all of mine have been with my former carry gun , the little pt111 limited taurus , everytime I went to fire on the BG the trigger would break since its plastic .
No more plastic triggers for me on my carry guns and I never ever leave a gun empty , always one in the chamber and a full mag . If your around me and pick up a gun ...... its hot and ready .

WHY.........WHY ! Do these ****tards feel the need to back traffic up knee deep to a giraffes ass just to rubber neck at a wreck on the other side of the efing rd ?
Is it me ? Am I just immune to wrecked cars ?

only thing that pisses me of even more is on a 4 ln hwy with a center divider and idiots pull over when there is a fire truck on the other side coming .
Just what do you think will happen ? Is the big bad firetruck going to stunt jump that K-rail into your lane ?

Yes I had a bad trip to town on the bike , some pimp wannabe in his chrysler 300 pulled right out in front of me , I hope like hell I effed his driver door up when I kicked the chit out of it .
