For the last 2 months the AIR hasn't been that great when you can see it. The smoke from several fires in the area would just hang in the vallies...but it is getting better. Have had several days of rain that helped put them down.
Mine is also .308...it is large enough for all the big game in Alaska with proper bullet placement. I do rely on my personal marksmanship abilities but that is something I believe in. The issue could become very dicy very fast for some snap shooting if necessary but then that's what large caliber handguns and having hunting partners is for...lol
Bingo- it took a year, but I finally got my Ruger Scout (LH!) and it's amazing. I used to hunt with a 30-06 but once I realized my accuracy potential, I dropped down to a TC pistol in .223. Age has happened and now it's the Ruger or my (LH!) Tika in .243 for deer and coyotes, my Volquartzen for squirrels (or my Ruger Single Ten).

That's because they have no argument. When presented with the truth, the facts and proper sources..
You mean like the constant references to the Supreme Court and the exact and complete quotations from the lead justices in the cases?

Oh, that's right... we are the ones who with the exact and complete quotations and references...

And you are the one who takes two words out of the Second Amendment and insist that you have a better interpretation that the Supreme Court.

Funny for all the whining and crying: it seems that conservatives cannot get their agenda through because they keep losing elections.

Best of luck, 2016. Maybe tea baggers will leave the party by then?

Exactly. It's only deflection to detract from their being wrong.
You told us the state of Louisiana had the largest population of blacks in the US.

I proved you wrong and you deflected.

You then insisted you meant to say had it had the largest per capita population of blacks.

I proved that wrong and you deflected.

You insisted that you based your "FACTS" on old numbers.

I proved you lied: there are no old numbers.

And you cried that other people deflect from facts...

HAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

You keep thinking someone is going to pay attention to what you throw out pretending they are facts though they are your opinions and rather stupid opinions.

Guns make murders easy.

Just ask George Zimmerman.

In order to feed the single mothers and children who need it, we have parasites like you who would rather collect welfare than work.

It's a cost we-the people who pay taxes- must bear.

I'm not the dumbazz that pretended Puerto Rico was a state.

I'm not the one who is living off mom trying for five years to get a GED.

"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with,[But] the law couldn't prove it."

Here is the actual provision (jury instruction) read to Florida juries prior to the legislature's enactment of Stand Your Ground.

"The defendant cannot justify the use of force likely to cause death or great bodily harm unless he used every reasonable means within his power and consistent with his own safety to avoid the danger before resorting to that force. The fact that the defendant was wrongfully attacked cannot justify his use of force likely to cause death or great bodily harm if by retreating he could have avoided the need to use that force."

The same provision after SYG enacted by the Florida Legislature in 2005 changed to:

A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

What is your point? We know that SYG enacted protection to the victim. It was a move in the right direction. It should make criminals worry about their safety when attacking innocent people. Which it does, thus all the criminals wanting it repealed now.

It was created to cover vigilantes who insisted they should have the right to chase someone they thought was breaking the law, provoke a confrontation, and then use deadly force without retribution.

The pedophile here got away with murder. He won't be the first or the last.
