I've never done Facebook until today. I found one of my boys' Facebook page.
In these latter days of metrosexuals, pantywaists, and other sorry excuses for males taking over our country, it did my heart good to see this pic of one of my boys with his buddies...

Remember when all that AWB hoopla was going on a few months ago? Well somebody on the OB had a great counter to the out-of-context "statistic" that Louisiana has the highest gun death rate in the nation.
I recall the OBer was factual and insightful, but I just can't recall the specifics. Help me ...

So the wife had a good question for me. Would putting our NRA Life Member stickers on vehicles (or the front window of our home) actually make us a target for theft? I want to fly the flag for political purposes, but frankly I hadn't thought about this aspect.
What's the OBs thoughts?...
| Outdoor Board|| Is the M1-Toro is the way to go? - CoastieGM on 5/17/13 at 12:19 pm|
What's the OB's opinion of the M1-Toro?
The way that the 300 BLK is a hybrid of the .308 and .223 rounds, the M1 Toro is an amalgamation of the M1 Carbine and 9mm luger rounds.
Just saw it for the first time today. The owner says it's a really sweet carbine round. This is a new one on me.

| Outdoor Board|| Compensator or no Compensator, that is the question - CoastieGM on 5/6/13 at 9:40 pm|
Ok, topic is a .357 revolver.
6" regular barrel vs. a 6.5" ported barrel.
Does a 6" 357 recoil enough to benefit from a ported barrel?

One of many reasons I think shotguns make a lousy home defense weapon.

| Outdoor Board|| Background Check Question - CoastieGM on 4/30/13 at 5:36 pm|
I know that a CCL holder in Texas does not have to undergo a background check to purchase a firearm.
So I assume that the feds waive the background check requirement if they hold a CHL/CCL?
What do you guys know about this?...

I was hiking to a very remote area of Lake Conroe to do some bank fishing. I've explored the area for years, but never had guts enough to bust into a particularly thick area that has never had any sign of human activity. I finally did it this time and found a little water hole that was miles from an...

Heard quite a commotion at 4 am.
Yotes were going after one of the live catch traps I set out last night. Can't choot 'em (wrong weapons at this house), so I figure let 'em terrorize any cat in the cage.
Yotes were so noisy I finally ran them off. Lo and behold, one of the two pet rabbits I re...

It's a conspiracy. Walked out on the back porch and heard noises everywhere. 2 cats and 2 possums.
