    Does anyone ever read this forum?

    That is an interesting question. I have no contact with young people. I am trying to formulate a good question on the topic, for instance for Dr. John R. Lott, Jr. How are NRA membership numbers changing as Boomer lifers age out?

    Does anyone ever read this forum?

    I check for new posts everyday. OCDO comes after Volokh Conspiracy and before Bimmerfest in my morning routine. OCDO may be a victim of it’s success in encouraging open carry, that is certainly not as controversial as it once was. Like many fora once established for a purpose, once achieved...

    Make Finland the Land of Shooting Badassery Again

    I would rather gun ranges remain gun ranges, instead of turning them into goof courses. Now maybe we could combine, hit the goof-ball with a bullet to advance it towards the target hole?

    Open Carrying on Postal Property

    That’s what makes us ‘nuts’, be we gun-nuts or health-nuts or religious-nuts or citizenship-nuts or political-nuts. We nuts are really interested in our rights, all of our rights. God Bless you.

    Open Carrying on Postal Property

    Thank you. I knew that if I hung (hanged?) in there long enough this site would cough up a pearl and prove its worth. Thank you. I am ATM vacationing in 34436 Florida until April and discretely armed.

    Oh Well! Too Late for advice now,,, My B-day toast...

    Bless you. I still ride my tricycle long and hard. I did give up my sailboat a few years ago. I drive my BMW too fast but no tickets since 1977. Wear my gun every day and pray I have no cause to shoot it. I walk fine unassisted, but use my walking sticks on my 4 mile not often enough walk. I...

    Halloween carrying??

    We’ll be celebrating also Milady Wife’s 85th Birthday with friends while watching the door for any parents faithful enough to tradition to avoid pathetic alternatives to Trick or Treat. Our population is of such low density that parents drive the kids and after dark. We will be playing our...

    Just in case....

    Prayerfully, hopefully we all have a peaceful lifetime supply of ammunition. I hope all attend to Cardinal Vigano’s awakening tocsin for America. The Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem has asked for today as a day of abstinence, fasting and Prayer. Locally we have an evening Eucharistic Adoration...

    Is the police symbolic depiction of the American Flag incorporating a thin blue line a violation of law?

    The U. S. Flag Code codifies custom and tradition, anathema to progressives. Progressives argue that “no right is absolute” out of one side of their mouth while demanding to burn the National Flag of the United States of America. Another case of a pinhead dumping on angels. Trump is my...
