  1. Very true. We are all brothers. Some of my best friends, and worst to pick on me, are cops. We share the same burden of being the red=headed step children until we are needed. when you lose the urge to pick on one another, you need to hang it up!
  2. Desperado, you got lots of prayers headed your way. Ill pick up where Rampy went astray... (Im a christian, like many call themselves, however I am not a hypocrite which so many so called christians truly are). Ive been there, as we probably all have. However, God placed Matthew 11:28 on my heart. " Come unto me all you who are heavy laiden, and I will give you rest". No matter how big the problems are, always remember that Gods love is bigger, and farther reaching. He doesnt call us his children for nothing.
  3. :biggrin: If ya cant stand the heat....become a cop!
  4. Thats awesome! And its more awesome that you took the time to take your son shooting. Dont see that much any more. I remember my dad taking me shooting in the woods with him. We would take his old GI 1911 and his British .303 and he would pick a knot in a tree for me to aim at. Most were misses, but now that he is gone, i appreciate those moments dearly. It was time spent with my hero, and the spark that started my love for anything gun related. Thats something you cant get from TV or a video game. And something probably most of your son' s friends dont and wont get from their father. Good job!
  5. True. Very true. However, when you got GTO dreams, and only Pinto income, you have to bypass the showroom and head to the bargain basement! You speak the truth though.
  6. Cant explain the Hoppes failure, but for blood on clothes/rags, use peroxide. Wont bleach colors, and will take the blood right out.
  7. I am a gun loving firefighter. Have grown up around guns, my dad taught me early about guns, and my uncle who is a cop taught me to properly respect guns, and how to properly use them. I would like to hear about you other gun totin' fire eaters!
  8. "well my shoes are on sale and dont cost as much!" ... well, no but when you buy 3 pair at a time.......
  9. Yeah. The funny thing is, a few months back, my wife got interested in getting her concealed handgun permit. Of course, I was FULLY for it! She started watching some of the shows I watch, and saw a gun that she thought was "pretty". When I told her how much it cost, she flipped! She could not believe the cost for a gun! She decided to use one of mine instead. Less "pretty", but already paid for ! lol
  10. If ya dont know what a coach purse is, ya probably aint married! No i feel ya there. My wife cannot understand why i have to have all the guns in my cabinet. And when i expressed my wanting to buy an AR the other day, she REALLY didnt understand. " Well if you have all those guns, why do you need another one? What does it do that the others dont? "
  11. Thanks firebird. Actually i re-searched through buds tonight and looked at the double stars. Also saw some good prices on DPMS panther. I work with cops, and each have different guns, and all think that theirs is the best. Price drives me primarily, and buds has a few different ones that are wonderfully priced, so its hard to choose!
  12. If ya gotta wipe milk off its lip to clean it, its probably too young!
  13. Vic you should make a big deal. There is not enough deal made these days. Maybe your family doesnt understand, but I would gladly listen to what you had to say. Thank you again for all you did, and still do today. Telling about your experiences keeps the tribute of the lives lost, alive.
  14. Just wanted to stop, (as we all should) and thank all you veterans for your service, and the continued impact that you all make on America!
  15. What are thoughts on DPMS and Olympic firearms?
  16. jchtrh, thanks. thats great info. thanks. i will look into that
  17. I have looked at the M&P sport. good looking guns.
  18. newbe i am listening. I am just expressing my thoughts. I am allowed to do so. I greatly appreciate the advice or info given by these intelligent gun owners and look forward to hearing any other info or advice. Again, i am expressing what I have found in my research in hope to promote the exchange of views on the topic. i take the advice from these gentlemen very seriously, and hope that they have not taken my posts as snobbing them or their advice.
  19. I hear that, but I see lots of problems noted from palmetto, with the gas tubes, and another issue is, I know Bushmaster. They are a long time business, and until recently, I had never heard of palmetto. Just afraid that if something goes wrong, I know Bushmaster will be there, but I have fears about the other.
  20. I see a lot of hatred for the carbon model in a lot of research that I have done on the rifle, mostly due to it being carbon, and a lot of once-carbon-haters switching to the dark side and embracing them. I dont know much about it but it seems like anything else, the "correct" AR has to be the way it has been for years, and now that there is a "new" concept in the AR world, there is insults before taking time to consider it. Kind of like how people in the hunting world when AR's started to appear and be used instead of the ol' reliable bolt actions. Just a thought. Please continue to give your thoughts, they are very appreciated.
  21. I can get the gun delivered and all for around $654.
