Is OK still a BYOL state?<quoted text>
About 20 years back, there was an abandoned strip mine of some sort, you could go practice in-- it was perfect: had anywhere from 20 to 50 feet high walls consisting of fairly loose shale as a backstop. Little chance of ricochet back to you or elsewhere. Easy paths down into it, from when they were hauling up the ore. It was about as perfect as you could ask for.
Alas, the nanny-state morons closed it off, and prohibited the public from going in there. meh. Afraid some moron would drown in the man-made lakes down at the very bottom, I guess.(as if that wouldn't have improved the gene pool some... it would've been a win-win I'd have thought...)
But now, there's no where nearby to go shooting for free. A few paid locations here and there, but without membership, it's prohibitive for regular practice. There's a really good range outside of town, too far to go apart from weekends, though-- takes about an hour to get to (poor roads). And because the land is owned by a rational family?(the gun club only leases it) You are not forced to subsidize the nutter-NRA bullshit...
There's one in the southside of the city, but I've not checked on their prices-- likely as ridiculous as the ones nearby, if not worse.
... meh. Too much regulation makes indoor ranges too expensive-- and about 70% of the regulation has **nothing** to do with shooting itself, but with **air** quality!!! WTF???
... nanny states...(in the voice of Yosemite Sam)
I hates that rabbit...
When I worked in Tulsa years ago any place that served serious booze was a private club that you had to join.
You brought your own liquor and then they put a member label on it and serve it to you.
That was weird!
around the same time in South Carolina I was working in Myrtle Beach.
served all liquor in airline bottles!
now... back on track with the pontiff, the new holy guy from Argentina.
I find this ironic
'Who am I to judge?'
Pope signals more tolerant stance on homosexuality!
Previous Pope had signed document saying gay men should not be priests.
But Pope Francis says gay clergymen should be forgiven and sins forgotten.
Comments came as he returned from wildly successful tour of Brazil.
I suspect there will be more alter boys bending over now.
The "Word of God", far from being inerrant, has always been a work in progress.
The number of apologies are limitless and though some may seem hollow and disingenuous, the RCC advises all apologies will sound very sincere.
