(Forgot my gloves when I left, too).
Boy, was that place packed today. Because it was Friday? Maybe.. But I think Friday, payday, AND the fact that people are buying while they still can, has or had a lot to do with the crowd in there. Those poor guys were running their tails off trying to help people. What a mess..
Hey Nope. I'm wondering what kind of gun you got but if you don't want to say I understand. Have fun!:) I'm hoping to get a new one pretty soon, as soon as I see how this little crisis works out and how hard it hits my pocket book.
No buying ammo at WalMart for me! One of these days I am going to quit them completely!

Well move your backa. I had a full time job for 47 years and a part-time one as well for a good deal of that time. Many of the rest have done similar and don't collect welfare or "wellfair" whatever that might be.

Today is not a good day to make any important decisions concerning birds: you need to spend more time on research and stuff. Spend time with any bird watcher in your life, as they may be feeling neglected lately. If friends seem as though they are not being as flatulent as usual, it's probably because they have their own problems, and it's nothing personal.

Wow, I know the moon in my part of Kentucky is only half full, so what's with all the weird and snippy posts? lol

I got company and ended up sharing dinner. Now kicked back for the night, got BlueBloods to watch, a new one at that and some time to myself. Got plans for tomorrow night. Out for some F-U-N :)

Lala, loved the stories of your hubby. He is a very special man. I could tell taking to him that one time you were in the hospital and him updating us through email. A real gem. I am glad you and the little one have him.

Nope, Hope you enjoyed breaking in your new gun. I guess gun shops all over the country are running out of stock, overwhelmed with crowds, and clearances backed up. I am sure they are laughing all the way to tbe bank. Hope people who have plenty of guns already aren't spending their nest eggs for them. I would buy ammo for the ones I got instead. I think I have all I need.

Ancient Wolf, I always thought Imposter was probably Don't Care or Birdkiller, not Una. lol
(Hope I don't jinx them back in here. haha)

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Should be nice and warm tomorrow. Yay

DEAD BIRDS:

This hurts my heart and enrages me at the same time. How disgusting and sick would you have to be. I pray they catch who is responsible. Just so sad:

4 bald eagles found shot at Washington state lake

Officials and a Native American tribe in Washington state are offering $13,750 for information leading to the conviction of whoever killed four bald eagles near a lake last week, according to local media.

Authorities tell The Seattle Times they suspect the bald eagles were shot from the trees and dropped into a Snohomish County lake, where their bodies were found floating. The incident occurred east of Granite Falls, the Herald newspaper of Everett reported.

"I've never seen anything like this in 11 years...it's egregious," Sgt. Jennifer Maurstad of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, told NBC station KING of Seattle.

Marustad told The Seattle Times it appears the birds were shot with a small-caliber rifle.

Investigators say the black market for eagle parts can be lucrative, potentially fetching hundreds of dollars, the newspaper reported. Parts could be used in things like high-end artwork or cultural ceremonies, according to The Seattle Times.

"I don't think he (the killer) had any intention of profiting from them," Maurstad told The Seattle Times. "I think it was just a spur-of-the-moment opportunity."

Without a permit, killing a bald eagle -- America's national bird -- is a serious offense.

In the United States, the bald eagle and the golden eagle are protected under multiple federal laws, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Per the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, felony convictions can lead to a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years in prison. Civil penalties are also subject to thousands in fines and imprisonment. Bald eagles are also protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Lacey Act. The bald eagle was removed from the Endangered Species federal list in 2007.

The act is also a misdemeanor under Washington state law, according to The Seattle Times.

The Stillaguamish Tribe, a Native American group based in Arlington, Wash., has pledged $10,000 toward the reward fund.

"The Tribe is shocked and offended at the wanton wastage of wildlife and supports the efforts of state authorities to investigate and prosecute this case," the tribe said in a statement Friday.

Guess I will stop whinning about the brrrrrr cold:

Snow trapped hundreds overnight on Alabama highway

Parts of the Southeast were digging out Friday from a winter storm that dumped up to a foot of snow around the region and played a role in at least one death.

In central Alabama, hundreds of people spent a cold night trapped on Interstate 65 in Cullman County after snow caused a series of wrecks that snarled traffic for miles.

Hundreds of cars and 18-wheelers were at a standstill on the highway early Friday, County emergency management director Phyllis Little said.

Read more and see video:

I hope they keep down there.

Hi WKG! If you want a new firearm, my advise is to not wait for ANYTHING to settle down. This "crisis" is not going to go away like a bad fart under tight bed sheets.

If you want one, go get it and go get it now. Personally, I'd recommend a revolver because it doesn't look like there will be an issue involved with owning those any time in the near future.
(Of course I"m only assuming that as of right now though... Who knows what the months or years ahead might bring as far as our rights to bear arms for personal use)..

And for some odd reason, I'm having trouble posting what I have in my personal arsenal. I'll try again later... I don't know what the heck is going on.

Maybe "gun" talk and calibers are being pre-screened?

I've got nothing to hide about what I own. I have a Ruger 357, a semi auto 22, a semi auto 9mm, a Mossberg 20 gage with a 5mw laser lite/flashlight assembly including a sling that holds 15 extra shells, plus another old beat up 380. That old 380 has seen better days, but it still shoots true. Out of all of them, I think the Ruger and Mossberg are my favorites. My Ruger is nicknamed "John Wayne". It's a pure hog of a cannon. SO much fun to shoot! But then so is the Mossberg.... I like ALL my guns, don't get me wrong. But those two are my first to pick up when it's play time outside.

I had fun tonight when it started to get too dark to really see very well and played around with the Mossberg and laser, lol. Not like you even NEED a laser with a 20 gage, mind you, but it's so much fun...

This new one I added today is a snub nose 38. And honey, it's SWEET! I wasn't immediately impressed with it this afternoon, but I've got it sighted in now and I'm good to go. It's not bad, not bad at all.

I still have plenty of ammo left over after 'recess' today, but I did manage to put a hurting on my stash. I'll have to restock sometime next week. The gun dealers are running low on ammo everywhere. I talked to one of my bro in laws out of state tonight and he said he's started ordering most of his ammo on-line again. It just took him two straight weeks to get an order delivered, where he used to be able to have it shipped right to the door in just a few days flat.

Everything I have is so far legal. But how long that will last is anyones guess. The mags on the semis hold more than 7 rounds, as anyone who's familiar with firearms obviously already knows.... And I do have plenty of extra clips for each one.. We'll see what happens with these new laws. While one web site says that what you already own could possibly be 'grandfathered' in, the next says we'll probably have to either sell or forfeit.
I'll do neither. Too much money invested here to give these up for a nickel on the dollar.

I'm sure our resident naysayer will find both humor and disdain in this comment somewhere, somehow... He seems to be awfully intimidated by females who know how to rely on and take care of themselves without any male counterparts glued to her tail ends 24/7..

You'd think that these days, most men would appreciate a woman who could also back HIS rear end up in a dire pickle. I know the men I associate with certainly do. Of course, they aren't intimidated by much, IF ANYTHING, at all.
So just ignore the ignorant comeback which we can all bank on soon enough. Some snide comment will follow from him directly, you can count on it..

Haha, it posted three times. Glad you enjoyed your new gun. I feel the same way about men. I have had a few that just couldn't handle some mouthy female, self sufficient and don't need "taken care of". I hope the gun restrictions aren't as bad as you and all the gun collector think. I don't believe it will. But I can see how people would think it.
