A Gun in the House

    The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
    defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is
    more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is

    As John Steinbeck once said:

    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight,
    he'll just kill you.

    2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

    4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

    5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The
    reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and
    asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they
    don't make a 46.'

    6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

    7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady
    commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your
    pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting
    trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

    8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE

    But wait, there's more!

    I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I
    said I did.

    She said 'Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!'

    To which I said, of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!'

    She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your

    My reply was, 'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching
    fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all
    loaded too.'

    To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like
    having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

    I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please

    The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until
    they try to take it.
    ---Thomas Jefferson

    I'll let the ne'rdowells ponder if I do or do not keep loaded guns in
    the house. While they ponder that, they can wonder what kind and how
    many. I do give free guess...I'm set up to deal with any threat at
    every range. 8^) Oh and the calibers are quite varied, you want little
    holes? Lots of little holes at once? Or maybe one really big hole?
    They might get away with so many decisions to make.

  2. So will an old woman. ;-)
    I'm waiting for them to come out with pocket cops. They are only
    intended for honest folks.
    I had a cop just seconds away but we moved.
    Good answer.
    Now that is my kind of Sheriff.
    You aren't talking about those cheap replicas are you?
    I've been low on gas but never on bullets.
    Cold dead hands, etc.
    Same here and every one of them belong to me... not Joe. He's an
    expert marksman with an attitude. ;-)

    BTW, I paid $1.59 at the pump yesterday. It got up to 95 degrees in
    Breckenridge yesterday, there were a lot of bikes out on the road...
    and last but certainly not least, my house was delivered Monday
    afternoon and is being prepared for us to move in. PTL!

    You got a problem with using a colt 1851 NAVY in 44cal pushing .451
    ball with 30gr of 3f powder? 8^) Trust me they are far more accurate
    than you think. At 30ft Barb and I both can put 4 of 6 in a fence
    post...belt buckle to chest high. ;^) Never underrate a gun that has
    killed more people than all the S&W Mod29's ever made. I'll be getting
    the 1860 Army later this year...if it was good enough for Mr. Hardin
    it's good enough for me.

  4. No, I was referring to the non-working types that are just for show.

    I sure it is. :)
    I dunno... the distinct "click" of a .38 right next to your head might
    get your attention. ;)

    ....you've never come home at 3am and NOT turned the lights on. Good
    thing dad liked to be sure. 8^) Being a manly man I didn't befoul
    myself....but it sure was close.
    p.s. send a mail to the other email (not hotmail) got some sad news.
