Re: I Will Stab You If You Say “All Lives Matter”

Interesting how in today’s red flag days, a kid can mention a threat on social media and the law is all over him/her and almost guaranteed Baker acted (or equivalent) but if it’s in support of BLM, everyone but the employer looks the other way.

Re: Are there any S FL gun shops open & doing transfers?

Weird. I had looked up the address on the website at the time and it pointed there. Now I see it’s by The Girls and Dans Fans. Looking for a Glock 17 MOS. Maybe he’s got one....

Re: Petition started chg Plantation city name

Got an email from the UF President saying he has banned the chant Gator Bait because the term was used 100+ years ago depicting black babies being used as lures for gator hunters.

Sex shops will have to destroy flogging gear and “shackles” before the FBI gets called.

I'm sure they'll want to change the Broward to something else too.
I do believe that will eventually happen. They removed his statue from the courthouse already. Which actually brings up that the majority of Presidents on currency were at one point slave owners. Hmm... what to do.....

Re: Petition started chg Plantation city name

Good god. I wasn’t born there but moved there in ‘78 at 14 yo. Sure we joked there were racist groups in nearby Davie, but Plantation was never rooted as a “southern Plantation”. A few years back there was a movement to rename PHS mascot Colonels who looked like ol Reb from Ole Miss but the compromi...

Re: Amazon gun part purchases

I bought 2 trijicon RMR type 2‘s on Amazon. While there are reports of sellers trying to pass off Chinese copies as real, I had no problems. Got the best price after an extensive search. Also got a couple of $89 Sig Romeo 5’s. Now thy are almost double the price.

Re: Anybody ever have their AR optic go down while in use?

My first Eotech was a 511 which uses Hard to find N batteries It has a rated run time of 20 hours at low brightness. Needless to say, it would go dark on me all the time. It is the worst HWS ever made period.

Re: FBI stopped ISIS inspired attack in multiple locations around the Tampa Area

..... It supposedly is true that the Postal Service photographs every piece of mail that goes through the system. Yeah, my ex mother in law was a career USPS employee and said they switched over to the optical sorters a while back which took the place of hand sorting and they do save every image. P...

Re: 529 plans, negative experiences? Alternatives?

So my son’s 529 lost about 12% in the last quarter but I expect it to rebound based on the market this past couple weeks. I chose the 529 plan administered by the FL Prepaid when I bought prepaid plan when my kid was born with the intention to use it for housing in case he wanted to stay off campus....
