Re: 25 years ago today, the Clinton AWB was enacted. 15 years ago it expired.

I remember being happy to buy couple of 15 round Glock 19 mags for $30 each. Later after I sold that Glock 19 I sold those mags for $50 and the buyer was happy to buy them at that price.

Re: Tropical Storm Dorian

Count your blessings, we got very lucky with this one.
If we got hit directly it would have been catastrophic.

Re: Tropical Storm Dorian

I'm getting tired of all this talk about Dorian and where it's going to come ashore so lets change the subject a little. So what are you taking/keeping out of the safe for this storm?

Having served as a juror and witness in criminal cases I have seen how difficult it could be for the jurors to hear the real truth as there are many ways lawyers block certain information...and this is by both sides. Also many defendants have to rely on public defense attorneys any ones I saw were c...
