And on another note!!!


Click to sort by name and find the picture of my truck on page 12 and Jason's truck on page 10 and vote 5 stars! Jason's truck is the one with the white front clip (or is it magazine? Wait, sorry, wrong conversation!) and the front tires in the air, it's the same truck that's living in my garage these days!

Feel free to vote 1's for everyone else on the page or as many as you want. Hopefully this link works. .

Yeah, but it will be several months before I'm ready for them and they would just sit and dry out. Thanks for the heads up though!

So those extra-small condoms DO have an expiration date, huh?

Khris, ironically while working, I've been in some pretty nasty situations. I'm at mcds and gas stations very late at night. We've had some customers' businesses robbed or shooting inside during hours that we could be in there working on stuff. I've had people deliberately trying to fight with me for whatever their reasons inside bars and restaurants late at night. We ha a technician threatened with a knife inside a restaurant that just recently had a shooting. Another tech had a beer bottle smashed on his head while walking into a gas station to fix equipment. If you were out and about in places as often as driving, I think you may have a slightly differing opinion on this. I've missed being bitten by a dog by literally inches(had to jump away before owner got control) I've had people flash weapons while driving and received threats just by being in a certain neighborhood at night. People get desperate, and of they think you have something they want, they will try to take it. I've been saying for a while now that its only a matter of time before one of us(techs) gets mugged or stabbed or shot because we must go to areas of town that have a....reputation.

Two of my buddies have stared down the wrong end of guns while doing their jobs. One of them had the guy pull the hammer back and told him to "make your peace with god!" and the guy was quite serious. He got out of it by calling the office on his work phone in his hand and the secretary heard the conversation and call the cops! It really is a scary place to be here! Thing happen that don't make the news!

thats just my opinion. Out of sight, out of mind is my motto, but different strokes for different folks.

Only time I ever regularly OC is when camping and sometimes when wheeling/hiking. All of which generally do not involve close proximity to strangers.
I agree on the out of site. I feel like open carry can escalate some situations, I've seen it happen.

Personally I'm a fan of the Glock, if my wife has to use it she can just point and click. I've shot a few thousand rounds thru mine and the only malfunction I've ever had was caused by a worn out clip spring.

On the home defense I vote for the shotgun with the bird shot. Even if the perp lives he's done causing me problems.

I used to have to go to seigel suites and the like at my old job all the time, and measure the entire properties. A few of them took 2 or 3 days being there from 9-5.

I got hassled a lot there, by simply unsavory types as well as kids as well as crazy types, that was one of the reasons I started carrying.

Many if not any situation can be survived unarmed by simply using your head! Avoid letting people get close. Pay attention to your surroundings. Don't antagonize people who are already agitated. The Colorado shooting is an example of why it's a good idea to carry. No amount I smarts would get people out of that. That's a situation of shoot or be shot! It's becoming more prevalent in "safe" areas too.

And I bet you were just minding your own business just trying to get done so you could leave? There have been multiple grocery store shootings here in town. If you've lived here long enough to remember food for less at sahara an valley view? Dude with a shotgun just killing people "cobra" style! It happens!

Just a few years ago a man was stabbed in the Walmart at boulder and nellis over a parking spot. I personally witnessed a shooting at the gas station at lamb and boulder. That cop was murdered in his garage while working on stuff. The list goes on and on!
