No, I’m Not Dead Yet

“I feel better” /montypython

Actually, I do. It’s just the post-bug weariness/fatigue/notgiveashit syndrome. I’m very sorry that I’ve been away from the keyboard for so long and I appreciate both the efforts of the Imperial Staff and the loyalty of you fine LCs and other good sorts.

Now, back to trying to get caught up, but I have a feeling that I’ll be back in form before very long.

Once again, thanks for your concerns and your loyalty.

Carnal Flu is a real bummer. My brother inlaw is getting over it as well.

If you need to get the blood moving, read what’s going on with Der Fubar’s plans to ban the second amendment :em08: ,

A tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar, a tablespoon of raw honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Take that three times a day and you’ll be back to your old crotchety self. Glad you’re feeling better. :em01:

Here, this will cheer you up. Some black comedy gold!

This is HILARIOUS and INFURIATING:

The journos who “outed” all those NY gun owners? they are here caught on videotape REFUSING to put a sign on their lawn saying “This Is a Proudly Gun-Free Zone!”

So they DO know that homeowners’ guns prevent crime. Bastards.

LC Moriarty, Imperial Goatherd @ #: I just got back from my local happy place. (New gun store) Bought three 30rd AR mags Looked at something in a .45 for concealed carry. I also contacted a local range regarding training for home defense and concealed carry. I’ve been told it’s only $10 for a resident in my state and I… Read more »

Welcome back your highness. The excrement is about to hit the rotating oscillator.

Of course you’re not dead, Sire….you posted. I’ve had a bad case of flu only once, missed two days of work. It sucked, worried about my wife and daughter getting it. No doubt you felt uttterly wretched. I know it’s another thread, but Happy Birthday anyway. At least you don’t lose count, or mercifully forget….yet. And yes, the world is… Read more »

If you need to rehydrate…take Powerade/Gatorade and cut it in half with water. (The body can only absorb about 10% Glucose and those drinks are about 15-20%.)

Oh, another thing. Anyone going to the state capital rallies this weekend? We have one in NH and perhaps 3-400 are known to be going. Need more everywhere.
(Although in Albany NY, they should be carrying their now outlawed guns and lots of ammo) :em08:

angrywebmaster @ #14, 15: I tip my hat to you, sir. Well done on all counts. I did handle a .45 Glock. I’ll be honest, I didn’t like the feel in my hand and I’m biased against hammerless pistols. I’m no Glockenspieler, but I will point out that John Moses (pbuh) designed a number of successful striker-fired pistols. His original… Read more »

Well it’s going to be a few months in any case. I also want to try out a few to see what I like, and right now I’m learning about the various holsters available. (I rather like Hickock45 on Youtube)

angrywebmaster @ #15: Personal preference. It’s “tuckable” so it conceals under almost everything, has interchangeable Kydex bodies (allows you to accommodate different pistols) and the J-clips are replaceable. It’s also comfortable. Most importantly, they included a roll of Smarties when I bought accessories. (Galco and Bianchi never did that…) (Tip: You can always tuck your shirt under a “tuckable” holster… Read more »

And on another note, it looks like Obama’s EO’s are being laughed at as a complete waste of time and ink. From what I’ve been reading, he wanted to order a confiscation, but Reid told him that was a non-starter and that there is no way anything is going to make it through the senate, never mind the house. Apparently,… Read more »

Right now, I have a Beretta M9 style and that’s like hauling around a howitzer. A bit of a chunky piece and harder to conceal, but not a bad pistol overall. A good friend of mine had a.44 Deagle on his CCW permit back when we still had to list guns. He wore it under his jacket in a shoulder… Read more »
