Brooklyn Coppinger
MEAD, Wash. — Spokane County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) responded to a shooting on East Hawthorne Road involving a security guard and two civilians on September 30.

At around 11:15 a.m., deputies were called when a caller reported that a security guard was involved in an altercation with two people who were shot during a struggle.

According to law enforcement, one was pronounced dead at the scene, and the second person was transported to the hospital due to gunshot wounds.

The security guard was not seriously injured.

BZ for the guard, and “civilians” doesn’t strike the right note. Try “thugs.” Thanks again, Gun Bunny.

Legislation can neither be wise nor just which seeks the welfare of a single interest at the expense and to the injury of many and varied interests.

The A300 Ultima Patrol may be on my short list. We started getting them in a few months back, and I continually put them on display and sell them within a few days. Funny, we sold a S&W 500 within two days of me putting that out.

James, from TFB TV, did a comparison between the Ultima Patrol and the 1301, in which he drew the conclusion that, while the 1301 is better overall, the lower cost and “almost as good” vibe the A300 has makes it the preferred shotgun for probably 95% of users.

I was looking at the Benelli M4, but for sub-$1k, the Beretta is tempting.


Saw that. Been on the fence over a semi SG for a hot minute but the italian offerings may sway me.

Of course there’s still the Mossberg 930/940 (and James’ short shorts. YW):


Looks fammiler to me.

I resemble that remark…


Russkies have stupid VA-type BS, too… Russian soldier denied compensation for getting injured in combat because it was friendly fire:


Too late for one of those “civilians” to not only work on victim selection skilz, but to also find a new career path. I have a barren field to give for him.

For those that think their vote doesn’t count, remember that Andy Johnson avoided impeachment/expulsion from office by only one (1) vote. The administration that followed was considered the most corrupt administration ever…until now.

The owner’s manual states this shotgun is not recommended for hunting applications.” Unless one is hunting two (2) legged varmints.


Don’t know wheres else to put this, but I believe its a FGS (kinda):

A Florida man who was attempting to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a man-made hamster wheel is facing federal charges after it took the U.S. Coast Guard five days to bring him ashore, according to a criminal complaint filed in Miami.

The Coast Guard spotted Reza Baluchi, 51, some 70 miles off the coast of Tybee Island, Georgia, on Aug. 26, while making preparations for Hurricane Franklin, the complaint, filed in federal court, said. Baluchi was charged Tuesday with obstruction of boarding and violation of a captain of the port order. (Link)

Re that bolded part, when did the CG start arresting people for non-crimes 70 miles out (62 miles into international waters, iirc)?

Look Coasties, this dude wants to end himself by ‘bubble buoying’ himself to unlife, at some point you gotta let’m.

Bon voyage, Reza! Don’t forget to put some oregano and lemon butter in your pockets because crabs and fishes should come pre-seasoned.


This is something like the third time this maroon has attempted the crossing in what the Coast Guard described as something like an ‘inherently unsafe’ vessel. He goes out, he’s spotted, someone calls the Coasties to come and bring his butt back in, they waste time and government resources – they don’t like that.
