  1. We use their targets too, and just staple splatter targets on top. Ha... don't worry, if you make a minor mistake, the tower Nazi will "remind" you, we've all been there... that's why he makes the big bucks! Just buy theirs, it's also probably easier for the RO when he's checking the line, it's what he's use to looking for, versus some abnormal flag.
  2. I always bring a case of generic canned soda, and we shake the cans before putting them out. They explode pretty good! The range Nazi has never said anything about them.
  3. It's OK to set up multiple different targets. We set up a few at different distances, depending if it's for handgun or rifle. I also mix it up, and bring some filled soda cans and water bottles that I dye different colors. Just as a change from punching holes in paper.
  4. It's getting tougher and tougher to tell which ones are the real animals, the two legged ones or the four legged ones. I have much more respect for the four legged ones!
  5. You win! ....."The attacker shot dead on London Bridge was known to police and had connections to terror groups, according to reports. According to The Times, the attacker was a convicted terrorist who had been released from prison after he agreed to be monitored by authorities. A security source told PA news agency he was known to police and had connections to Islamist terror groups." https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/london-bridge-attacker-identity-attack-video-stabbing-incident-latest-a9227061.html
  6. That is the starting point, and it starts when they start walking. Teaching them to be honest and responsible, EARLY in life, is the first point of business. Yes, kids will be inquisitive, and might search around. That's why it's important in the beginning to teach them that bad choices have bad consequences. Having to build Fort Knox in your house, because junior can't be trusted, and ignores what you tell him and ignores the rules, well, there's bigger issues there than the guns... In that case, maybe the guns shouldn't even be in the house. So yes, everything STARTS with education and respect, across the spectrum. Your situation is a bit different than most here, since it's part of your daily profession, so it has to be handled appropriately. There are different situations in different houses that need to be handled accordingly. Hell, some of the wives don't want guns in the house. Ha.. there are some guys here that could probably write you a short novel on that topic.
  7. That wasn't advice, it was a question.
  8. True, but some trolls still come back to post, no matter what the quantity of their posts are. We have to take the good with the delusional.
  9. Apparently, the question was too difficult, since it was more than 3 words.
  10. There's a video on this link showing bystanders fighting with the guy, then the cops come in. I'm not sure, listen for the shot and what the cops were doing. Maybe they were concerned about the vest, but they backed off and shot him, instead of joining the bystanders to restrain him: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10451300/london-bridge-knifeman-heroes-shot/?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=sunmaintwitter&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1574415283
  11. Here's a picture of the knife: And here's the perp on the ground:
  12. I don't think it's "whimsical", but financial. Many would like to move, but can't afford to move... Wanting to move, but unable, due to job/money is a bit of an issue. Here's some additional stats from the poll:
  13. EastLondonLines‏ @eastlondonlines 11m11 minutes ago The Met Police have confirmed the suspect was wearing a 'hoax' device and have declared the incident to be a terror attack.
  14. What, like your bank account numbers?
  15. Some would argue it's a wasteland NOW, due to Dem control...
  16. Wifey has a marinated turkey breast from the butcher in the slow cooker (but no ribs) and a conventional turkey in the oven.
  17. Well, this isn't going to work out well for the ones that stay here. Think it's expensive NOW??? Just wait... Thanks to the highest property taxes in the nation and an unsustainable cost of living, 44% of New Jersey residents plan to leave the state in the 'no so distant future,' according to a recent survey from the Garden State Initiative (GSI) and Fairleigh Dickenson University School of Public & Global Affairs. Unsurprisingly, Property Taxes and the overall Cost of Living were cited as the main drivers. The results also debunk two issues frequently cited in anecdotal accounts of outmigration, weather and public transportation, as they ranked 8th and 10th respectively, out of 11 factors offered. The desire to leave the Garden State was reflected most strongly among young residents (18-29) with almost 40% anticipating leaving the state within the next five years. At the other end of the spectrum, a third (33%) of those nearing retirement (50-64) plan to leave within the next five years. -Insider NJ "These results should alarm every elected official and policymaker in New Jersey, said GSI's president, former Chris Christie Chief of Staff Regina Egea. GSI focuses on providing "research-based answers to fiscal and economic issues" facing the state. https://www.gardenstateinitiative.org/updates/2019/11/22/gsi-fdu-poll
  18. There's is always more to the story, what starts out looking like a good idea, turns into a monster: Ring, the home security system developed by Amazon, is planning to build a database of neighborhood watchlists using facial recognition technology. Documents obtained by the Intercept revealed that the company is working with law enforcement on a system that will identify people who are considered “suspicious,” and let Ring owners know when these individuals are near their home, using the facial recognition software built into the security system’s cameras. “Ring appears to be contemplating a future where police departments can commandeer the technology of private consumers to match ‘suspect’ profiles of individuals captured by private cameras with those cops have identified as suspect - in fact, exponentially expanding their surveillance capabilities without spending a dime,” Tajsar said. These features are not unprecedented for Ring or Amazon. Earlier this year, Motherboard reported that Ring was encouraging its users to snitch on their neighbors in exchange for discounts and free products.
  19. Which why my FIRST question was, "does he know the guns exist"? The kid won't search for something if he doesn't know they exist, versus wonder what's inside this nice shiny, exposed gun safe. Why is reading comprehension always in such short supply?
  20. I wonder if they make Forumcams...
  21. No, they won't see a dollar of my money: ......"Schwab became the latest financial institution to distance itself from the NRA, following in the footsteps of Citigroup and Bank of America, which two years ago began refusing to process gun purchases or lend to gun manufacturers, drawing the ire of gun-rights organizations. " And neither will those two....
