    Actually it was the second week of October. Small game season, IIRC. Those squills down here do get rather large.

    I was visiting my friend in Charleston WV two years ago. He was driving around to show me the sights. Not 3 blocks from the Capital building were three adult men, two with bolt action rifles and one with a AR type rifle, walking down the street. No one gave them a second look. In NJ they...

    Because there was a gun in most every home in the US made Japan think better of invading the US. Japan had heavy armor, aircraft, but no nukes at the time. I believe the quote was along the lines of " a gun behind every blade of grass". NEVER underestimate the value of a skilled marksman...

    In enough time, someone will tell you that he was THINKING about guns when he planned this.

    Well, as the old saw goes, "America, where ANYONE can grow up and become president." Tho I believe they carried it a bit far this time.

    Too many people in the US were getting drunk, so prohibition came about. A total failure, it was repealed after 13 years and a tax was put on liquor. Many years later, Obama put a 'sin tax' on liquor. I was never aware that sin could be taxed??? Pot was against the law. Now it is legal...

    I agree with all you wrote, except it was the National Firearms Act of 1934 passed by FDR that required citizens to go thru background checks, etc in order to own a fully automatic weapon.

    I remember when I was 7 years old (1962) my 13 year old brother was given a Stevens double barrel shotgun for his birthday. My Mother ordered it from Parker Brothers sporting goods in NY State. A week later the mailman knocked on the door. I answered the door and he handed me a box clearly...

    I too respectfully disagree with you. If you disarm the populace, who will protect us from the government? Take the second amendment rights away from people, then defund the police. Who is going to protect the people now? Every woman is born with the equipment to be a prostitute, and every...

    I own two Stevens Crack Shot rifles that belonged to my father when he was still single digit age. One is a round barrel rifle, the whole rifle being not more than 18 inches long, the other, with an octagonal barrel is made for older kids, perhaps 9 or so and it is about 2 feet long. Both guns...

    Snakes

    My nose definitely picked up the cucumber smell. Some 8 years back my testosterone level took a dive from exposure to chemicals at work. Went to the urologist to get testosterone shots, and now I finally give them to myself with quarterly monitoring. After each shot I would get an alcohol...

    Snakes

    Snakes follow food. Lots of mice/frogs/bugs, etc will attract whatever preys on them. Bought a house in WV last year. Was mowing some high grass when I smelled a cucumber smell. I stood still and looked around, and sure enough, there was a 3 foot copperhead sunning itself in a patch of lower...
