Not exactly the image we'd like, but it does make the point that looting is not a life-enhancing occupation :evil:

& everyone's fingers were nicely indexed along the side of the weapon. I don't think I want to mess with that neighborhood, they seem to know what they are doing :D .

Just what the anti's need. Drunks with guns. They could of left out the first line and the cans. :rolleyes:

As for the shooting the looters, I don't disagree with that at all. I just don't think alcohol and firearms mix too well.

not a single EBR, but that guy has an SW 500?

No cowboy hats either... nor deer rifles... you sure that's Texas?

Dr.Rob - that revolver looks more like a BFR or perhaps a Ruger. Not a S&W .500 unless I'm blind, though.

Too Many Choices!?

Either this is West Texas ,or these guys DO know what they are doing :confused: :evil:

But you are not likely to freeze to death. I think I have seen it snowing maybe 4 times in my life. :)

I saw that same picture a few days ago but it was why there was no looters in Mississippi. :)

Looks like a normal friday evening get together to me.

The heat really isn't that bad here in the summer. Hell, the hottest I think I've ever seen it here was about 113 degrees. :fire:

sturmruger -- I highly recomend you move down here amongs't us as it's not hot here in Texas. As a matter of fact it's a constant 72-75 degrees year round... indoors with the AC full blast!

Accept the last feller on the right :o .The guy with the .38 snubbie (4th from the left) has his finger clearly on the trigger (and his thumb on the hammer), the guy in the red shirt and camo hat next to the utility pole looks like he has his finger on the trigger, and, as already mentioned, the guy in the blue shirt on the far right also looks to have his finger on the trigger.

I got that pic from my neice in NH. I seem to have friends & acquaintances all over NA and it never fails to amaze me how quickly internet 'novelties' get from one end of the country to another, or even from which direction it originates. Go figure. It's still funny, tho a bit tastelss (perhaps).

Because of the combination of beer and guns, they are the "designated shooters" and they spotted trouble coming up behind the photographer at the exact same time the photo was taken. It's either an animal or looter. :)

Yup, it's true somewhat.
But for some reason I did seem to remember some reports of looting in Houston. :uhoh:
But as for suburbia that was the kind of display that keeps the looters home in Crack town. :D

It has to be East Texas...southeast Texas at that. There's grass in the picture, and what appears to be an oak or sycamore tree. Can't be NE Texas because it's not a pine tree.

The only thing you see that's green in West Texas is money, fresh cow patties, and Diamond Shamrock gas stations.

Our motto "Don't Mess With Texas" was originally used as an anti-litter campaign. But, as you see in Post #1 it works on several levels! :O)

Are you people just not listening, or is this a case of selective believability?
There was looting in Beaumont. Were some neighborhoods prepared? Sure. But there was still looting in Texas damnit! :banghead:
