Re: Are LEO required to respond to an emergency while off duty?

They're not even required to respond when ON duty. Multiple federal courts and the SCOTUS have ruled that Law Enforcement has no duty to protect any citizen . Warren v District of Columbia Lozito v NYPD Castle Rock v Gonzales Barela v City of Denver "...a government and its agencies are under no ge...

Re: Florida’s Primary Election and Gun Control Supporting Republicans

So, my state senator (Bobby Powell), a DEMOCRAT, voted NO on the Florida gun control law.

While my state representative (Rick Roth), a REPUBLICAN, voted YES on the unconstitutional law. As did my Republican U.S. representative, Brian Mast.

What is happening to my world?

Re: My DIY Weathermeter Wind Vane Project

OK! I finally got a video put together. Every time I went outside, the wind was nearly dead calm. Then, through the window, I'd see the wind picking up. I'd run outside with my gear, and the wind would go dead-calm. Rinse and repeat. Finally, today I got enough wind to test my rig and make a video. ...

Fun rifle. Showing up at the range with it is like driving up to your high school reunion in a Ferrari. Everyone wants to check it out. I often let folks shoot it. They always have a big grin afterward.

Re: If Open carry Became Legal Tomorrow...

Nope.

I treat it as a "need to know" status. No desire to carry openly. Though, I might in the appropriate context, such as camping in the wilderness.

Re: If I Only Had A Dollar...

A gal that worked for me back in 2001 was dating a guy who worked as a phone answerer/dispatcher for the 911 service at the sheriff's department in Hillsborough County. One Friday evening he came to pick her up at work and he and I were chatting about guns in the parking lot. He noticed the Spyderc...

My DIY Weathermeter Wind Vane Project

As many of us know, the wind plays a BIG role in long distance precision shooting. Reading the wind is a specialized, developed skill (and art). Temperature, humidity, and even barometric pressure also play a role in precision shooting. Fortunately, we also have technology to help us, such as wind m...

Re: Friends of NRA event last night

Wow... he had some nerve showing up! I voted for that treasonous POS. I sent him a letter to tell him in NO uncertain terms that I would be deliberately voting against him, and that he should enjoy his 2-year term, because it's all he will get.
