    If they used hollow point .357s a hit would take off an arm, or most of a leg of center of mass
    most of the organs. You will go down now. You won't survive usually. The Army does have to
    think about t...

    If you go to Walmart, they probably have a georgia map book with topographical maps. I haven't
    seen one in a couple of years, but I think the books have a list of ranges on public lands like
    national ...

  • Posted in thread: Some open carry activist are just not helping. on 08-02-2014 at 01:32 AM
    I think these sorts of OC activists are really inviting the general voting population to
    question the sanity and judgment of gun owners. It's a question of context. If I'm driving down
    a country road ...

  • Posted in thread: The Decline of Wood Products on 07-08-2014 at 04:24 AM
    Seems to me that the wood products industry needs to do a better job explain that they are
    "green" and "renewable." If you use a tree to make something, then the forest has economic
    value. Thus, it pa...

    I think Germany invading Russia was hands down the biggest mistake. Hitler got cocky.I'm not
    sure the Japanese Pearl Harbor attack was a strategic mistake. We would have starved Japan of
    the needed in...

  • Posted in thread: Did the allies use the best strategy...? on 06-26-2014 at 09:13 PM
    I don't think airpower alone would have been sufficient. Strategic bombing was only possible
    due to the long range of the P-51 Mustang. Plus, the Bombers of World War 2, were also not
    tremendously acc...

  • Posted in thread: Open Carry vs. Concealed Carry: When is it appropriate? with Jerry Miculek on 06-15-2014 at 03:54 AM
    I'm not sure that open carry makes you safer. Right now, I'm wearing a $20 Timex that is the
    most valuable thing I have on me. However, if I was openly carrying a $700-$800 firearm and
    went out amongs...

    Most of the time, you can just respectfully listen to "right" people and roll your eyes later.
    If they think D-Day was June 16th, that is their issue. However, if they think they are right
    and present...

    I think Mr. Wilcox did the right thing in stepping up to confront an obvious gunman in what
    seemed to be trending towards a mass shooting. I'm sure he was focused on the obviously armed
    man who had ju...
