    When you have nothing else to do, try this: PARKING TICKET: My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He just ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an "#$%*." He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So my wife called him a "#$%*head." He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote. He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away. Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home. We always look for cars with Biden stickers. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's so important at our age!!

    I got an email from them a few days ago saying they’re sending me a free gift. Hmmm. Ok. got it today. Ammo can embossed with target sports on the side. Ok. Cool. But. Then i opened it. Ts patch. Federal sticker. Ts sticker. Blackhawk dual mag pouch 10 rds of hornady 165 gr gmx. With a letter of thank you for ordering from them over the years. Now there’s a company that’s showing customer appreciation. Although they pretty much have nothing in stock. That company will retain my business when this shitshow subsides. thank you Target sports USA

    It would seem, the OP did not come here for a solution, but as an opportunity to whine about pinned stocks. Get over it, work the problem, move on. Oh, and also vote for the party that supports 2A.

    There’s a little back story behind this gumbo... I can’t believe this was 40 years ago, but starting when I was a young man of about 14, I spent my summers working on the Mississippi river, aboard the towboats, pushing barges full of petrochemical products up and down the lower river. I started off as a deckhand, and after a while, I sat for my ‘tankermans’ license. I was in charge of loading liquid cargo, like gasoline, toluene, and other petrochemicals into barges. I think I was about 16. Later, when I turned 18, I sat for my inland pilots license exam. I worked as a relief pilot on and off for a few years, mostly holidays and summers, while I was in college. While I was working aboard the M/V Dixie Power, there was an old Cajun cook aboard the boat. He was from the bayous of south Louisiana. For the life of me, I can’t remember his name, (hell, I don’t think I could pronounce it), but he used to make this gumbo for the crew about once a week. I loved it..and he taught me how to make it. While he didn’t teach me ALL his gumbo secrets, he taught me enough to be dangerous. So, in the spirit of that old Cajun, let’s make a gumbo!!! Just like most all Cajun cooking, first, you make a roux. Not just any roux, for a proper gumbo, you want a nice, chocolate colored roux. The best way to do this, so you’re not stirring it forever, is in the oven. It’s a (mostly) hands off process. Heat your oven to 350°. Take 2 cups of AP flour, and 1.5 cups vegetable oil, and whisk them together until smooth in your cast iron skillet. Stick this in the oven, and give it a good stir every 20 mins or so. Should take 2 to 2 1/2 hours, but the result will be a nice, chocolate brown roux. Time consuming, but you pretty well can’t screw it up using this method. While the roux is doing its thing in the oven, it’s time to get chopping the veggies for the holy trinity, another gumbo essential. About 4-5 stalks of celery. 2 large yellow onions 2 large bell peppers. Chop em up, and sauté them with a little oil (or bacon fat if you’re felling froggy). Cook the veggies until the onions are translucent. Toss in some chopped garlic, a tablespoon or so, or more if you’re so inclined. When the roux is done, add it, and the holy trinity into a large stock pot. Cook them a bit together until they are nicely combined. Add 4 quarts of stock. I usually make my own seafood or chicken stock. I didn’t have enough homemade stock, so I used 2 quarts of homemade shrimp stock, and 2 quarts of store bought chicken stock. Let this simmer for awhile, add some Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning to taste, and now, you have a good base for a pot of gumbo. By definition, gumbo is an amalgamation of different things. Sometimes it’s made to clean out the refrigerator, or the freezer. Sometimes it’s made with the catch of the day, from a from a fishing trip, or fresh kill from a duck hunting trip. I was chatting with @Bighungry618 the other day about it...and I think he put it best. “Gumbo has no rules”. A gumbo is anything you want it to be. Well, mine, has some ‘guidelines’. I never add okra to a roux based gumbo...because that’s the way I was taught. That doesn’t mean you can’t...I just don’t. On that note, I DO like an okra gumbo though..... For this gumbo, I’m throwing in a bunch of chicken wings, and about 2 lbs of cooked smoked sausage (before Big Hungry loses his mind...I would NORMALLY use andouille sausage, but Mrs Tex said it was too spicy for her). So, smoked sausage it is. Gotta keep the boss lady happy. I also had a couple of smoked turkey legs in the freezer Mrs Tex was after me to use. I cut that meat off the bone and tossed that in there too. That’ll add a touch of nice, smoky flavor to this little batch of loveliness. After it simmers for an hour or so, when the chicken wings are nice and tender, it’s ready to add seafood. I added 2 lbs of shrimp, and about a pound of jumbo lump crab meat (since my local fish monger didn’t have any crawfish). You can add anything you like. Oysters, scallops, fish...you do you. You can turn off the heat at this point...the shrimp will cook in the pot and turn nice and pink. Serve it in a large bowl, with a scoop of white rice in the middle. Top it with a little green onion, or chopped parsley (or both!!). If you like, a little gumbo fil’e powder (which is dried sassafras). Maybe a little Crystal hot sauce, or another dash of Cajun seasoning. Don’t forget some warm French bread, for sopping up the bottom of the bowl! You’re gonna wanna, that’s for sure!! Good eats, y’all!

    Yeeeeeaaaah Buddy!!! Anyone that buys 6 lbs if Pork Roll - Case, Trenton, Taylor’s, whatever - is a person of taste and a damn fine American! Anyone that gifts someone 6 lbs of Pork Roll is, as my buddy Drew says, “Bro as Fuck!”.

    We need to stop calling these "hollow point" bullets and start calling them "safety bullets." If someone is doing shooting in your neighborhood, what do you want them shooting? Regular, old fashioned bullets that go through people and walls and hit other people? Or safety bullets that hit something and stop? We have to take over the language like lefties do.

    Hey, glad I found this forum. I've been interested in guns my whole life but my family was never into the sport. As a kid in Pennsylvania, I owned a few BB guns and some pellet guns. One pretty nice one I had was a .22 caliber S&W single shot CO2 target pistol. That was a long time ago. Now I'm in New Jersey and I decided it was time to fulfill a lifelong desire - a bucket list item, if you will. Got the Firearms ID and submitted an order for a Troy A4 "Other Firearms" 9mm. It will take a while to come in, but I'm excited. I hope to gain a lot of information from the experience of the people on this forum, as I'm new to this. First thing I want to do when I get the firearm is to take a safety class and any other beginner classes that might be appropriate. I'm from Somerset County, right on the border of Hunterdon. I'll also be looking for a range to shoot at. Glad to be here and looking forward to my new hobby!

    Unless you are really, really good, you are going to find that most ammo is more accurate than you are. I don't mean that as any kind of disparagement, just that variations in accuracy are more likely to be shooter induced than from the specific ammo being used.

    I agree. All of mine are 20rd with the exception of a few 15rd and one 5rd from when I was a subject of NJ. The 20rd mags just look right.

    After 20+ years seniority as Yankees Season ticket holder, I painfully canceled my tickets and closed my account (lost all the perks that came with it, kids running the bases, play catch in the outfield etc). I watch sports to forget and escape from all the nonsense going on and my problems for 2-3 hours. Alas, even in baseball politics are front and center spammed all over our face. I don't want to enrichen the pockets of these spoiled brats who don't know any civics or how our country works. No one kneels to the flag and I don't care who you are! If we want the teams to be serious people need to stop watching or hurt them with their pockets. Thank you and God Bless!

    This means that the hammer is not cocked back. You should be able to use the takedown pins to open it up. Despite what the NFAC head guy says, AR15s are not known for slam firing :P It should still always be pointed in a safe direction, however.

    I agree. The goal here has to be to vote out every Democrat currently holding a position. There can't be any exceptions and it has to be by the masses. I hate to say it, but this should be the easiest vote ever cast. If they are Republican, vote for them.
