    Not thinking ahead can come back to bite you in the ***.You want to give control over this
    issue to the Federal Government. It is a short sighted win unless you think that the
    Republicans are going to...

    I'm with Balota on this one. I like it, but I just don't see it passing. One of the biggest
    issues with it that I see is Vermont, which does not issue a CHL of any kind, so, for this to
    apply to all 5...

    Tucumcari, Nm tonight. 670 miles for the day. My miles are coming back up this week and the
    runs are much better. Very little sitting time. Starting to wonder why I waited so long to get
    rid of my pro...

    On the first read through, I like it. The bill seems to say that any State that allows its
    residents to obtain a permit to carry concealed must allow non-residents who have a permit from
    their State t...

    If they called it Guns & Grog there would be a collective outrage over mixing these two
    concepts even in a name. (...hic...) or sumtim lak dat!

    Pretty sure you are right about holster not covering the safety, but is it moving the safety
    when I reholster or when I draw? I think it is on the draw, which is better, but almost all of
    my previous ...

    Better to figure out what is applying pressure to the safety in the first place and change
    that. Just my opinion.

    Getting back to food. They do sinfully good things to duck and pheasant there. So make sure to
    try out those dishes when you can. And, of course, they do magic when in comes to fish dishes
    too.They te...

Welcome, Balota, as the newest Mod !!!

Hopefully you will be better (logical, fair, honest) than the old mod's are.

@Shoobee I do try to be logical, fair and honest. In my experience, the other mods do too. Sometimes actions that do not seem logical or fair from one point of view can seem more so from another.
