Wyoming is very gun friendly. Illinois, on the other hand isn't. In Massachusetts, possession of ammo without a permit is a crime.

Any idea how many loose rounds I have in my glove compartment? Good thing I don't drive through Mass!

That is a perfect example of why not to have a federal requirement. It is one more option for the feds to tighten the strings and slowly take the the 2nd away. On the cover it sounds good, but it would be the stepping stone, the first step, to introduce, what seems like minor changes, in the bill so that I would no longer be able to purchase ammo without a permit or it would be made that everyone would be under the same laws and regulations as Illinoise. DC or Mass.

This is a great video. The only problem is that my sound is not working x.x

Thanks for sharing!

Well, in Heller versus DC, the supreme court allowed for the concept of reasonable regulation. It failed, however, to define what reasonable regulation is.

What is happening in parts of the the country clearly isn't reasonable in my conservative mind, and I was hoping they would expand the right rather than restrict it.

Liberty, not tyranny.

the auto loading M&P is over 20 oz, probably closer to 30, and lets get real, I don't see myself carring around a double barrel shotgun in a Doc holiday rig.
Carring big heavy guns basically sucks. I suspect most people that say they do usually don't.
S&W used to make a J frame airweight 38 with a 3" barrel and adjustable sights, Then they painted it black, slapped M&P on it and doubled the price. I would like to find one of the older ones, Who knows might find a beater snubby and just re barrel it.

Whenever I ride where grizz are, I carry my 454 Casull as I don't want to trust my 44 mag on them and piss them off. Have seen mt. Lions just outside of town here on the elk refuge, but have yet to see one while hunting or riding. Would be cool to see though.

Joe, how is it looking for the opening of hunting in VA. On Sunday? I see there is a bill to allow it in the Va. Legislature.

we defeated it this year. It slipped through the senate under the radar, I had one senator flip flop, and several new ones that basically didnt know any better and got hit by the hunting lobby the day they were sworn in, it came up for vote in the senate like the first day of the session. Every one of those senators is getting slammed by calls and emails letting them know the error of their ways. Then it hit the newspaper, was a huge uproar. We packed 300 people at the House committee meeting, VS 6 in favor. So it was killed. It will be back again next year.

I am on the look out for a Tracker titanium in 45 ACP, or the 360 in 3" in 357.

I have a pretty good idea on self defense- done a bit of kick boxing and taekwondo...I can also get pretty lethal when I need to be

99% of the time, its the riders fault.

Personally, I never carry a defensive firearm that isn't loaded and in its appropriate condition of readiness. Since I carry Glocks and revolvers, all I need to do to fire is press the trigger back.

If my pistol comes out of the holster, it's not to make a statement or a threat. It's because it's business time and my attacker is going to get shot the moment I clear leather. Once I reach that point, my attacker is going to have to be ****ed quick to disengage before he gets shot.
