Not everyone at your friend's age thinks like he does.Wow
This thread is all over the place.
I'll go in order...
My L3800 I bought new with FEL in spring of 2013. I believe $21,000.
Food prices- I went through McDonald's the other day on the way to visit my sister, the order was two quarter pounders, two med fries, one medium coffee- $19.50
I almost dropped dead, none of this was for me.(I don't eat beef or French fries)
Politics - I have a good friend who will be 81 in September. He did 22 yrs in the air force, and now as he gets older he's influenced by liberals and thinks we have no reason to own firearms. Police and military are the only ones who needs them he says. This just makes me open carry more when I know he's stopping by.
Influenced by the media he watches and believes every word. I've weened myself off the media. If putins dropping the bomb here I guess I'll be surprised. Lose Facebook, Twitter and all the rest of the time wasting junk and your life improves the second you do.
I am 82, a former Naval Aviator, and have a concealed carry permit,.... that I use.
I watch the TV, and am frequently digusted by the amount of misinformation presented.
