    Austin gun show was a MADHOUSE !!!

    in fact we didn't even go in. Buddy and I did our ritual breakfast buffet then headed to the Saxet show at the Heritage Center. Traffic was a nightmare. Once there parked about a mile away (closest we could get). As we approached we found out the WAIT was two hours to get in the door !!

    The line was as long as a Wal Mart parking lot. We both said screw it and took off.

    To be honest I was mostly looking for knives - knowing that right now prices are high and it's a seller's market. But after all the crap the city council tried to pull to ban them in Travis county I wanted to go in support of them - looks like they had a LOT of support !!

    Of course I saw a couple of news trucks there .. can't wait to see the spin they put on it

    The wife and I are up in Frisco visiting our son's family. We went to Cabela's in Allen and Cheaper Than Dirt and both were packed. I did find a box of .270 ammo I use in my hunting rifle. The only box they had. I also found a holster for my Shield. CTD was so crowded people were running over one another to get the last bit of ammo they had. We left there and went shopping around.

    These people are crazy right now. The Lewisville gun show was packed at 8am and after one row I left. Everything was over priced and even the guns no where near the ban list was going for way too much. As far as cheapet than dirt I will never shop there again. They had a ruger mini 14 ranch rifle sitting there for $1400. On there website they had it listed at $700. When I asked why they had the price that high the guy said" its the money making time now". I just told him they lost a customer.

    I bet everybody involved with any aspect of gun sales be it production, distribution or sales had a Romney bumper sticker an NRA bumper sticker and an appropriate T-shirt, but when they got in that booth they voted for Obama.

    This is exactly the kind of crap DC wants, unfortunately
    Please take a moment and always remember that the 2nd Amendment isn't for the people to have recreational arms (though included), but it's to arm themselves against a tyrannical government...

    We can hope for more people to resolve their issues in a better fashion than hurting others.

    Yup, hopin/wishin in one hand.... we all know how that goes. The human is a powerful animal, and when not trained correctly can be a menace. This is why The Crown would ship ne'er-do-wells to places like America, Australia & South Africa. We, unfortunately, don't have that option to "cleanse the gene pool" here. We've got to figure another way as it seems...

    Fear lies in those who think we need to arm our selfs to over through our government. We have a militha, its called the National Guard. If we as a people have a call to arms and all the civilians out there packing AR-15's come together to fight our country, who do you think will want to be the generals? Everyone will want to be incharge and I for one would never let anyone like that lead me. I don't believe in states succession and I don't believe we need to over through our government. Silly, just silly.

    No we don't Skip. Simple fact is we just the parents to start parenting there children and weather this next 4 years. It going to get real bad when the children of this generation are parents and don't have a clue how to be a parent and I really don't blame the children. It's not there fault they have gangster parents. A scary cycle for sure.

    So the function of the Texas State Guard is to protect us from the National Guard?
