Keep in mind also FOOTE, a lot of us (myself very much included) own multiple weapons. So I, along with the likes of Mach1, make up for a LOT of people.

And Preacher, I still owned weapons while I was stationed in California (9yrs; 3 in LeMoore, near Fresno, and 6 down in the San Diego area).........but I didn't bring all of them due to some of the laws there. Being in Mississippi currently, I can have all of my "toys" and actually enjoy them. The latest is the civilian, semi-auto version of the M-4 which is exactly the same as I carry in the field, but definitely not fully automatic. I enjoy plinking with it, it's great on coyotes, and I really believe someone would have a heart attack should they see it if they decide to come through my door uninvited.

And for the record, I hunt with pistols as well. I have a Ruger Super BlackHawk in .44 Magnum, complete with a lengthened barrel and a low power scope. It's a wonderful piece for hunting deer from a tree stand in tight cover.

Yep! 86% Timber and 14% Malamute. He's almost 14 now, and has been with us since six weeks. He is a small Wolf, 120 lbs., by comparison to his brothers who are 165 & 175 lbs. His father was 185 lbs. and was in a few movies, Sun Chaser with Woody Harelson (sp?), and on the cover of a few mags.

I have studied wolves for many years, and know that they are not dogs, but much more intelligent. Don't listen to all the "Big Bad Wolf" stories.

Don't want to hijack this thread so I'll stop there. Sorry for the rant.

how do they get such odd percentages? 86 to 14....i guess the malamute mixture would have had to have occured several generations ago....

Ha ha ha. I like guns and love shooting but when it comes to hunting I don't really like it. Last Saturday I tried to do little bit of hunting but didn't work. My dad, uncle, older brother and older cousin who are huge into hunting, took me with them.

P.S. This sucks big time that I can't read the previous posts on the thread I started. Somehow my work net won't allow me to read the first two pages.

Take a gun. Put a bullet in it. put it on the table, and watch. You will be amazed how the gun, by itself, releases the safety, then pulls the trigger and fires the round. It is magic!!


The ONLY way a gun kills someone is if someone ELSE (usually) mishandles it or uses it to kill. Guns do not kill in and of themselves.

And truly, there are usually a million plus crimes in this country STOPPED by a handgun.

If you want crime to go away, give every legal american citizen over the age of say, 30 a gun. Send them to handgun training, then make it A LAW that they MUST carry a gun with them wherever they go.

Crime will drop to zero in an INSTANT.

Love ya Preach! There's just one small issue with your proposal, it's called alcohol! :dual ies:

Guns are not the issue, it's just those few who can't handle them.
