Re: Gangs taking over LA Sheriff's Dept.

The names Rand Corporation and Rolling Stone pushing this throws up red flags for me.

Some of the stuff in that article is mindboggling. Assaulting other officers? Fights in the parking lot? Assaulting inmates? WTF, over?

Re: Armslist squeezing pennies

Never bought anything there, but used to browse the listings occasionally. I guess those days are gone.

Re: Beretta is a POS, part II

I transitioned from 1911's to the Beretta in '91 when we returned from Northern Iraq the first time. Hated them then, have even less love for them now. I do have a Taurus PT92 that is built like a tank and has a frame mounted safety that I tolerate, but probably only because I got it for free :oops:...

Re: dana perino dog jasper passed

We've been rescuing black labs since 1996. There has always been at least 1 and up 3 at a time in the house. We've agreed that after 25 years straight, we need a break. It's going to be terribly lonely here without one underfoot. The day you have to say goodbye is always as awful as it gets. If thin...

Re: Jacksonville on the shortlist for dumping Afghan refugees...

I'm actually shocked that Tampa's or St. Pete's mayors aren't begging for refugees. They both seem bound and determined to fundamentally change their respective cities in ways I find appalling. This would fit right in.

Re: Taliban takeover linked to Triple K

Man, I take a week's break from GD on that site and missed that donkey show. I'd have probably been banned anyway, so kinda glad I missed it. I read an interesting article about the patent absurdity of cnn's line of thinking (?) and the stink it gave off. It was so absurd as to be laughable. Looking...

Re: More problems for Rare Breed Trigger.

I have my trigger pretty light and crisp, and after watching the second video it looks like I wouldn't be able to get that with one of those triggers. I also think if one purchased it, they'd be moved closer to the top of the list for an uninvited asshat to kick down your door and shoot your dog kin...

Re: Corrections trainee killed by accidental discharge

We trained with then ancient .38 revolvers and Remington 870's in my academy in the mid 90's. I wonder what they were training with at that range? I can't imagine a trainee unsupervised at the range with live ammo. Someone besides the trainee screwed up fatally if that was the case. If it was straig...
