Jeb, Fat Boy don't and, at least, Carly's husband owns 6.

Might be as good a metric as any to measure them.

I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!

    Owning and knowing how to use are two completely different things.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    6? That's being barely familiar. :hand:

    And on the flip side one could say not owning one, but knowing how to use one are different too. Like some active and retired military and police.

    Yeah, I agree and get your drift, but then on the other hand I know some that only own one or two that are almost fanatically PRO 2A.

    And probably better shots. I know when I was less financially secure I owned one, and used it for everything.

    Yep, like they used to say.......... beware of the man who only owns one gun because the SOB probably knows how to use it!

    Hahaha, me too! Something to do with that old saying about Necessity being the mother of invention or something on that order. When that's all ya got you go with what brung ya. And when that's all you have you concentrate more effort into that one.

    My experience has been that the more I obsess on acquiring the equipment, the less I use it. :silly:
  • snake284snake284 Senior Member Posts: 22,429 Senior Member
    But seriously, I don't give a Rat's Ass how many they own or if they even know which end the projectile comes out. As long as the Politicians I help vote into office defend not only my 2A rights but all my rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution fervently, I'm happy with them.

    However, I know that the Bush family has traditionally hunted down here around Refugio, the small town where my Gun Smith has his shop. The O'Connors, the Braimens (However you spell that name), and other ultra rich Texans have ranches all over that country and George HW used to hunt there a lot. And I would imagine he brought his boys along many times. So Jeb is no stranger to firearms.

    Operative word here is "probably", and you actually have to use it to become proficient.

    What was it, 84 shots, ONE hit on the latest shootout?!?!?!?!?

    Yep, I'd be ashamed if I couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a base fiddle. They need remedial training on the range and they should make them do some of it on their off days on their time.

    Maybe they should at least buy a double barrelled shotgun................you know, the ones you shoot off your balcony to scare the bad guys away. That way, they are at least following party policy.............

    Wait, they don't belong to that Party you say? You could have fooled me.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Nope. All 84 of those shots hit...something.
