    Paraordinance, the company that first developed the high cap 1911 in 45, has brought out a high cap in their expert line that is fairly reasonably priced. I had an STI Spartan and it was a nice weapon.

    That’s okay, they didn’t even get the picture right. That’s not an M9 in the photo either. The one in the photo actually has the safety in the right place instead of on the slide like the M9. It also has a light rail that the M9 lacks. I’m almost betting that the photo is of a Taurus 92 or whichever variant thereof that comes with a rail.

    Fleming was trained to be a member of MI6, but couldn’t bring himself to actually kill someone in cold blood so he didn’t go into it. Were you aware that a Beretta in 22 or 25 was the signature weapon that the Mossad used for assassinations? In the kind of situations where a spy should be resorting to a handgun, head shots should be the norm and a suppressed 25 does those very well. Ideally, covert agents are not supposed to be getting into firefights. It’s hard to remain covert when you’re shooting up the place.

    I purchased an antique shotgun (made in 1925, so technically a curio or relic) a couple of years ago and when I went to pick it up at the local dealer, the Not so Instant Check System put a “Delay” on the sale. This was a shotgun that I had already paid for. I was told that I would have to come back a week later to pick it up. When I got there, he told me that they had called back about 5 hours later to give the sale the thumbs up. I have had more criminal background checks done than I care to think about, including having them done for life insurance licenses in over a dozen states. When I bought a new handgun last weekend, the sale breezed through in under 5 minutes, despite the dealer saying that he had been getting a lot of “delay” instructions the previous few days. I need to get another concealed carry license.

    The Constitution states that Congress shall pass no laws respecting the establishment of religion, OR RESTRICTING THE FEE EXERCISE THEREOF. This is clearly a case of religious discrimination by the state, and is therefore UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Since the Constitution trumps any and all laws passed that violate it, the law that requires any businessman to violate his/her religious beliefs is in fact unconstitutional and therefore NOT a valid law. If the Giffords don’t want gay weddings performed on their property because they oppose them on religious grounds, they have the right to refuse to permit them on their property. The Constitution was NOT written to constrain individuals in their rights, only to limit the ability of governments to infringe upon those rights. Liberals have no problem with demanding that companies refuse to allow people to legally carry a firearm on their property (a Constitutionally protected right) but insist that the same companies recognize practices that are not Constitutionally protected even when to do so violates the business owners’ Constitutionally protected right to practice their religion free from government interference. It just goes to show liberal hypocrisy in action.

    Billy the Kid committed most of his murders with a 32 and Czech Scorpion Machine Pistol is very effective in 32. A CZ 52 is a hot loaded 30 caliber that can penetrate soft body armor with the right ammo. It’s not about the caliber, it’s about shot placement. I can do more damage with my 380 than most people can do with a 45. It’s a 13 shot, minimal recoil tack driver.

    Exactly. People also need to learn that one or two bullets from handguns are seldom as effective as they are portrayed in the movies.

    As apologist JD put it, you do not EVER shoot to kill. You shoot to stop the threat, and you keep shooting until the threat has been stopped. Saying that you are shooting to kill, raises legal issues involving motive. Saying that you were afraid for your life and only trying to protect yourself, quickly followed by “I’m not saying anything else without speaking with my attorney.” The first can greatly limit your probability of arrest and the latter will greatly reduce your odds of conviction if you are arrested.

    I’ve worked in car sales and rent to own and its always the same story from these people. Woe is me, I didn’t pay my bills so now I have to have less desirable terms than the guy who actually manages his money. I’ve got screwed up credit, but guess what, it was my fault and until I get it fixed again, I expect to pay a higher interest rate on my credit cards and car loans. I had months as a salesman where over half of the people who tried to buy cars were forced to bring them back because the banks weren’t willing to trust them for the money. If this kind of device gets someone into a newer safer vehicle than a dangerous old one like I’ve been known to drive. My one car qualifies as an antique and until I had to get a newer car for work, it was my daily driver. If you don’t want to have one of these devices on your car when you buy it, pay your bills on time. These aren’t even new, the buy here, pay here lots have been using them for almost twenty years. The regular banks are finally coming around to the idea that a lot of otherwise good people are having financial problems and this is one way to protect their investments on less than perfect loans.

    As for simply removing it as soon as you leave the lot, you don’t think that thing will let the banks know that it’s been disconnected do you? It will and since keeping it on the vehicle is a condition of the loan, removing it will void the contract immediately. Then the bank can repo the vehicle and you end up with nothing.

    With pork made from the hogs fed the corpses of the previous round of decedents. We have millions of feral hogs in Texas. We could simply tie the miscreants to a stake and let the hogs deal with them. The AQ in Iraq thugs were killing the first born sons of the tribal chieftains who didn’t side with them and then fed the child to the parents for dinner as a means to terrorize them into submission. It was one of the things that lead to the Anbar Uprising. The chieftains decided that that was crossing the line and was no longer in line with their faith.

    From what I’ve read here, Dushman is simply telling people that they need to learn about their enemy. Sun Tzu, possibly the greatest military strategist to ever live, wrote that to know your enemy as well as yourself is to assure yourself of victory. If you don’t know how the Muslims think, you can not possibly hope to defeat them. Reading a proper translation of the Koran is no less important in defeating them than reading the works of Lenin or Hitler to understanding their screwed up thought processes. Intelligence is key. When you realize that they don’t care if innocents are killed if they hide amongst them, you will stop worrying about killing innocents and deny them that human shield. UNTIL the military planners understand that, they will continue expending ordinance in a futile targeted campaign. The longer that they hold out, the stronger that they appear and the more recruits that they will be able to attract. If you level entire cities to kill only a handful of enemy, you will weaken their resolve and lesson their recruiting ability. They have shown a total lack of respect for human life, so theirs, and those of their supporters must be forfeited to discourage others from joining them. The longer that they can thumb their noses at the US, the stronger that they will become. Shred their bodies with gun fire, feed the corpses to hogs publicly and you will put fear into them. They see compassion as weakness so must be shown none.

    They’ve already done that at the Vaughan foods case.

    Yep, saved you the tax dollars needed to support them in the state penitentiary.

    The one perp’s family member said that “No one wins in this”. I would have to disagree. The people of Canton won because while they have temporarily lost the income from a hard working tax payer, they have permanently been relieved of the threat of at least two armed and dangerous criminals. The taxpayers of the state of Ohio have also been relieved of the burden of supporting these two pieces of human garbage for the rest of their lives. These people should be ashamed of even being related to the two criminals.

    My money says that it’s not a local but rather one of the race baiter’s rabble rousers brought in from out of town. The other option being that it is a local felon with an outstanding warrant.

  • September 28, 2014 at 12:58am

    He’s right it does. It would certainly help race relations in this country if he and Holder would stop showing their racism by siding with the black criminals over the white police officers at every turn. He and Holder don’t want an honest discussion on race because they would have to admit that THEY are the biggest racists of them all. They don’t give a crap about anyone, white or black, being killed by blacks or Hispanics. They only get involved when it’s a black being killed by a white and they don’t even care if the black was in the commission of a felony at the time.

    Michael Brown was a dangerous felon. His own buddy admitted that the two of them assaulted officer Wilson. Instead of coming out and telling blacks that they shouldn’t commit crimes and/or assault police officers, Obamao and Holder came out blasting away at the police officer for shooting a dangerous felon. BTW someone who commits a felony is a felon, whether convicted in court or not. Al Capone didn’t go to jail for being a murderous racketeering bootlegger. He was convicted of tax evasion. He should’ve declared his operation a church and all of the booze he was bringing in as a sacrament. It would’ve become the fastest growing religion in the country with congregations in every town in America. Then he could’ve declared the proceeds as tax free offerings and the government couldn’t have touched him.

    The only thing protecting the health and welfare of the person who ran down one puppy in my old address or the one who shot my kitten is their anonymity. If I knew who did it, dealing with the police would be the least of their worries. Their life could very quickly become nasty, brutish and short.

    This guy is a product of his environment. He is a self absorbed idiot. Considering his lack of Empathy, he could even be considered a psychopath. Removal from the population pool for the protection of those who otherwise reside in it peacefully is definitely in order. Whether that removal is permanent or temporary is the only question.

    In the last three years, I’ve had two puppies and a cat killed. One puppy was probably an accident but the cat and supposedly one of the puppies were intentional. Had I been home when the perpetrators did it, I would not have shown the restraint that Marcus Luttrell did when his dog was shot in his yard. Of course, the last that I heard, the two trigger men in the incident haven’t been seen since being released on bail. Had this moron shot one of my dogs, they wouldn’t be needing to arrest and arraign him. I would’ve taken the dog to the vet, and then come back for him. I wouldn’t bother shooting him though. Beating him until he begged to be shot to relieve the pain is more in line with what he deserves.

    It isn’t about the people in charge of the money having been poor, it’s about the way that government budgeting is done. They spend money on stuff they don’t need because if they don’t overspend one quarter, their budget is cut the next. The system is set up to encourage waste and mismanagement. Spend some time around a military supply room and you’ll be astounded at what happens around the end of the quarter. It’s either feast or famine. If you’ve spent the money that you had on stuff you needed early in the quarter, you don’t have money for stuff you need at the end of the quarter. If you didn’t spend all of your money by the end of the quarter, the last week of the quarter you have to order stuff you don’t even need just to spend what’s leftover.

    What they need to do is put an accountant in charge of the spending and give bonuses to the department heads who are controlling their budgets so that they don’t overspend. You can’t tell me that if they had told the guy making this decision what his budget was, what the minimum standards would be, and that he would get a bonus of 10% of the money saved as long as the minimum standards were met that this would’ve happened. Any smart (hard to find those in government these days it seems) bureaucrat would’ve simply taken the specifications sheets to any of the building developers in the Phoenix area and bid it out. They would’ve gotten VERY nice single family homes built for less than the mobile ones cost.
