Re: Millennials vs Boomers

Who will win? :lol: There was a line in the video "Learning how to text is the only way you will ever communicate with your son"...there is truth to that for me, I actually did have to learn how to text a few years ago if I wanted to communicate with my son on a more frequent basis. I was born in 1...

Re: Some Gun Owners Are Being Irresponsible Across Social Media

My issue is they bluntly refused to make the call on the spot and stated that no SS will cost me a week of wait. They did charged me on the spot.
They are being jerks. The 4473 clearly states it's optional. They just are gonna call you in last because you didn't follow their "store rules."

Re: Joe Exotic reminds me of Sharon from Pops

Was a card carrying member there when a bunch of us donated time and money to build a decent firing line. I gave up after a few times I would call her days ahead to let her know I wanted to shoot on a certain day and then when that day would come the gate was locked and she wouldn’t answer her phon...

Re: What happened to FSN?

I come here today, see the Shoot Straight post and the OP was personally attacked...by a long time member! Curious who the long time member was that attacked the OP?

Re: Shoot Straight sells gun owners out?

First, did it ever occur to your massive ego that ownership might actually feel it is the right decision for the safety of their customers--that it is not some "sellout," just their view of what's appropriate right now? F'ing THANK YOU. A private business making a private decision about something t...

Re: New safe

Really depends upon how often you clean or at least wipe down your guns.

But a golden rod is really cheap insurance. Might also want to toss in a small box of desiccants.

And yes, for the inaugural year, it is normal to want to open the safe and gaze upon the glory.

Re: Since we are discussing crazy times... Where were you?

I turned 18 in 1972 and registered with Selective Service as required by law, but already there was alot of talk about ending the draft. In the Jan 73 SS lottery my birthday got 26 - but I knew I wasn't going to get drafted because it was a formality. Funny, in June of 73 I decided to enlist . . . ...
