  1. Do you like $4.50 gasoline? Do you like the restriction on illegals bringing fentanyl & gang culture into our country being lifted? Do you like having a Supreme Court justice who can't define what a woman is? And do you like slowly watching the plot by his own supporters to expose his son (and his) blatant corruption & bribe-taking while he was sworn to defend & protect our country? This imposter isn't going to last the year out, and his supporters a year ago are largely silent. The charade is almost over. I cannot wait to see how the left reacts after this November, they don't even have enough support to rig another election.
  2. The "lifelong conservative Republicans" are a big part of why Washington is the way it is today... The average person is sick of the career good-old-boys and the pay-pay-to-play culture. More & more Republican politicians who really seem interested in working for the people & their constituents are starting to pop up. And even old Ted Cruz has done a 180 turn. Make no mistake, Donald Trump has more influence in the Republican party than any other politician today, and a Trump endorsement is a coveted credential. Tell me Professor Know-it-All, do you think tens of thousands of people would wait outside for days to attend a Mitch McConnell or Lindsey Graham rally?
  3. And it's people who think this way that got us into the mess we are in today. Career politicians like Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Dick Cheney, the Bushes...really are no better than Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, or the squad. They aren't working for the people that sent them to Washington, they have their own agenda & pockets to fill. Which is why Washington is known as The Swamp. They never liked Trump because he wasn't scared to call them how he saw them. And worst of all is Mike Pence, he'll go down in history as the modern day Benedict Arnold.
  4. Ask 100 hunters, you will get 100 answers. I've seen pheasant & grouse basically disappear during my stay on the planet called Earth. Fall turkey hunting probably has the LEAST impact on turkey numbers, but that's where everyone points the finger first. I'm convinced most fall turkeys are killed by guys that are archery hunting for deer & sling an opportunistic arrow out of boredom, and not by dedicated fall turkey hunters. Predators, ESPECIALLY avian predators, are probably the biggest culprits. But it seems like trapping keeps the 4 legged predators in check, or at least helps somewhat. Then there is terrain changes, farming practices, suburban sprawl, climate changes, maybe some sort of avian diseases that haven't been discovered yet......
  5. Inflation & gas prices are just the tip of the iceberg, when you look at all of the things that are fundamentally wrong with what is going on today in our country. Complete dependence on China has to be the biggest problem we are facing; they produce most of the products we use today, in addition to a growing influence in the medicine we use & the food we eat. Try buying a car, lawn mower, or ammunition, in 60 years of walking this planet I have never seen anything like it. Donald Trump was on the money 100% when he said we have to cut the cord with China. They probably have a stronger military than we do now, which is a scary thought. I honestly hope the cargo ships sink in the bay and nobody gets a shiny toy this Christmas, maybe it will be the spark that's needed to wake the masses up. But I doubt so, most are content to keep their heads in the sand waiting for things to magically get better on their own.
  6. After 20 years on the WWW, I am tired of arguing with guys on this topic. You can kill a deer with an air rifle, 22LR, or a varmint rifle. But why do something that you know has a decent risk of failure or worse crippling an animal & feeding coyotes? As a boy my father always told me "use the right tool for the job", and that mantra carries over into hunting as well.
  7. Here's a novel idea....don't try to use counterfeit money, don't resist when confronted by the police, especially if you know you are in the wrong, don't use fentanyl, and you probably won't be put in a situation like this. Didn't we see a case similar to this 25 years ago in LA, when a man that was obviously guilty walked because "the people" decided they didn't want another riot? A police officer continues to kneel on a man's neck (who he knew) even though he knew he was being filmed. The man that dies was already on his way to dying from a fentanyl overdose. The officer whose career & freedom is on the line refuses to even try pleading his case? The videos I saw had a gap from the time Floyd was originally confronted until the time he had a knee on his neck. This case doesn't pass the smell test.
  8. Absolutely. I'd STRONGLY advise a first-timer to stick with a revolver that absolutely won't go off without a decent amount of pressure exerted, even if dropped. But really, a handgun is no less dangerous than a hunting rifle or shotgun, they are only looked at as more deadly because they can be carried without others knowing you have it in your possession, and statistically more people are shot at by handguns than any other type of firearm. Some people aren't bright enough to operate power tools, automobiles, or even use a kitchen knife at home, but we're not looking to ban these tools for our protection.
  9. For now, if I was making the rules, I would say leave the laws the way they are, with the exception of loosening restrictions in a few states like NJ or NY that severely regulate handguns & concealed carry permits. Make 30-round mags in rifles legal in all states. And abolish no-gun zones & handgun bans in some of the major cities like NYC, Chicago, & DC. After this went into effect, REALLY start enforcing the current laws so that fewer people who are on watchlists or mentally impaired fall through the cracks.
  10. I guess, why else would a non-hunter (or a troll posing as a hunter) spend countless hours on a hunting site trying to convince the weak-minded that gun control, voting Democrat, and socialism are good ideas?
  11. Deflecting. You come on a hunting forum, probably 99% members are gun owners, trying to convince us gun control is a good idea and that the current government has no intention on taking our rights away, even as they actively & publicly telling us that is exactly what they plan to do. That's not how this works.
  12. Don't quit your day job, standup comedy may not be your thing. No doubt 245 years ago there were those willing to fight, those willing to ride their coattails, and those who were happy to be servants. Not too hard to figure out where you'd have been.
  13. Not the current crop storming the border. They're just looking for handouts, by & large. Yes, they've been coached to use the word asylum, and I am sure they understand under the new presidency they'll get everything they hope for, & more. The world is laughing at our weakness right now. But talk to anyone who escaped persecution, and came here legally (I am thinking soviet Russia, China, Africa, Poland, Cuba, Cambodia, Vietnam). They understand what they left, and why they came here. Most have no desire to ever go back, unless the government they ran from can be changed. And they know that will never happen.
  14. No, I DO see that (that many who don't own guns want them abolished forever). The media has programmed these folks, I hope that some will wake up & understand history and what can & has happened before, before it is too late. We should do our part whenever possible to try & educate them, however frustrating that may be. The current crop of people slowly working their way illegally into our country from the south are thieves, plain & simple. I doubt most want to immigrate here & be absorbed into our culture & laws, most will head back to where they came from once they've pushed legal workers out of jobs, taken what ever free benefits they can mooch, & made enough to retire comfortably in Mexico or Guatemala.
  15. The problem becomes, once the laws are changed, they are next to impossible to reverse. Ask the people in Europe, or even worse, ask the people in third world countries what they can do to change the government. The answer is, nothing. The voting system is as bad or worse than what we are living with now. There is a reason why people oppressed people flee to this country, the answer is freedom. Take away the ability to resist and become impotent to change things, and we become just another weak population controlled by a corrupt handful who call themselves government. I don't know how to make this any clearer.
  16. With all due respect, I don't think you see the big picture. Semi-auto rifles have been available to hunt with for 100 years. No, they did they not look like an AR or AK originally and did not have a 30-round magazine, but the principle was still there. As fast as you can pull the trigger, the gun would fire. An AK or AR may not be the best rifle to hunt with in a more crowded state like NY, but they really do shine in a more open area (Texas, western states) where multiple shots at fast moving game or varmints are the norm. Put a scope on one & upgrade to a higher caliber, and you have a very accurate deer rifle. I'd prefer my AK over a handgun or shotgun in a home-defense situation any day of the week. Points fast, doesn't jam, and hits what I'm aiming at. Giving an inch in gun control rarely works out well. The second amendment was written so that the average citizen has a fighting chance to oppose an oppressive regime, which is the direction we are dangerously heading towards now. It's not really about home defense or hunting. The evil people taking over our country do not want us to fight back against them, they want this all to be very simple & seamless for them.
  17. Doing 12 oz curls, that is about it. When I am too old to walk in the woods or climb into a boat, I will probably be in the 4th quarter of my life with 2 minutes left in the game.
  18. It really is an individual choice how far somebody is willing to go in respect to opposing any confiscation, if it ever comes to that. Announcing your beliefs or plans on a public forum really ISN'T a good idea, especially if you are willing to make sacrifices many others won't. I think we all know what Grouse is saying, or have a pretty good idea.
  19. Pretty much, yes. 4 months later, and I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that some sportsmen & gun owners actually voted for this, and aren't afraid to say so. But maybe the end-game here after smearing Trump & probably Biden next, will be to put Harris in charge. I'd be willing to say it's a pretty even bet.
  20. I was never a tin foil hat guy either, but there are so many things happening in Washington & the whole country that just defy any type of logic lately that you have to stop believing the narrative being pushed on the more popular & prevalent media stations & forums.
