This area isn’t Viet of the Nam so skip the AR.
Nor is it big city jungle so skip the Glock.
Looks like it’s the shotgun. And a good dog….



“The purpose of a pistol is to fight your way to a rifle” – loosely quoting Jeff Cooper.
All depends on your personal situation at the time. One each is a better all-round solution, with plenty of ammo.


Maybe we should start a Skool of Victim Selection Skilz. Got to be a demand for that since there seem to be soooo many that are lacking that skill. Be a better career than underwater basket weaving. Get us some of that grubermint scholarship monies.

I’ll take one (1) of each. I can always use the abomination as a trade for a real pistol.


I guess Thomas won’t be ringing in some happy bells this year.


There goes the Tampa Bay Times throwing around racist names again calling people “boy”.


Breaking into a cop’s home is almost as dumb as trying to flush a gun down the toilet at the Grey Bar Hotel.

I hate every corner of this globe. Idiots.

Looks like someone has the necessary hardware for Three Gun Competition shooting.
