I am one of those rare guys who believes in a strong FIRST and SECOND amendment. A lot of my friends think I’m a little too vested in weaponry, so to speak. Several of my buddies are rather amazed at my proficiency with a rifle, and compared to 20 years ago now I suck.  20 years ago I made a 500 yard shot with a .222 and a spotter, the target, a prairie dog (at the time the standard target for the 500 yard club. 500 Yards is about a quarter of a mile. It requires knowledge of you elevation relative to your target, the ballistics of the load you are shooting and the wind direction and speed.  I tried the 1000 yard club but never could make that shot, even on a day with almost no wind.

Anyway I digress, a buddy sent me these and well, hell I figured they are worth a post.

As John Steinbeck once said.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he’s too old to fight… he’ll just kill you.

~ Other observations ~

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

I carry a gun ’cause a cop is too heavy.

When seconds count… the cops are just minutes away.

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.’

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

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.’

Beware the man who only has one gun… he probably knows how to use it.

A visiting lady once asked me 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’s loaded… can’t work without bullets!’ She then asked, ‘Are you that afraid of so meone evil coming into your house?’ My reply was, ‘No. . . not at all. I’m not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around. and they’re 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.’

And, finally…

One-word definition of an unloaded gun… ‘Stick’

  1. Bullshit!! Explain the squirrel Cap & Mittens you gave that last stripper you were seeing. (Although, telling her it was Polish Mink was funny.) And I swear that was squirrel soup you were eating too.

  2. I admit I’m very opinionated about guns. I grew up in the country, and longed for the day I was old enough to get my first bb’e gun (12). I’m also a history buff, and respect the role “the right to bear arms”, has played in our country. I also don’t like the government to control what we can and cant do. With that all said, I am for gun control. I’m all for hunting, ect, ect, but does a private citizen really need to be able to buy a machine gun? I don’t know of a single case where a gun ever saved anyone, but I’ve personal know of three tragic accidents caused by guns; so I question whether guns are protective, and deter crime. In the right hands, with the proper training guns are positive, but most of the people I know who carry guns, and have a loaded gun in their house are idiots; and I seriously question there judgment with a gun.

  3. I feel you about the addiction to weapons and shooting. I have a ranch that’s more like a Blackwater training ground than a deer hunting spot.
