    Was there ANY Founding Father who did not own at least ONE firearm for personal use?

    Should it matter? LOL. If the thread was about beliefs, then no, but the thread was about ownership. Also, there were statements made that people needed firearms to eat and surprise expressed if anyone didn't own a firearm. So, that aspect was addressed as well, again, has nothing to do with...

    Was there ANY Founding Father who did not own at least ONE firearm for personal use?

    Here is the estate of founding father John Quincy Adams. He was apparently quite wealthy. I don't see any firearms listed and the list is extensive, down to things like 1 pair spectacles. I could have missed it, but I don't see any listed...

    Was there ANY Founding Father who did not own at least ONE firearm for personal use?

    Then you would be very surprised. First of all, you keep making fairly absolutist statements that are overly easy to refute by examples to the contrary. You would be surprised if ANYONE back then didn't have a firearm of some sort? Okay, most women, slaves, and children did not own firearms...

    Bad News for Deer Hunters: CWD in 2 Men

    Very interesting. They cite the Mayo clinic for already noting CJD crossing species from cattle to humans.

    Was there ANY Founding Father who did not own at least ONE firearm for personal use?

    Of course not. I never suggested otherwise. I was just pointing out that your statement that people could not run down to the market during that time frame was not correct as markets existed inside of towns and cities to the point that the the colonies, later states, had an established meat...

    Was there ANY Founding Father who did not own at least ONE firearm for personal use?

    You do realize that when the Constitution was written, we had cities, towns, markets, newspapers, blacksmiths, government, etc. Not everyone lived in the rural country or was self sufficient. Many people most certainly did go to the market for their food. There was industry and specialization...

    Bad News for Deer Hunters: CWD in 2 Men

    Always go the the original source. The deceaseds did hunt and consume meat from a deer population that has CWD. That is known. Did the specific deer they eat have it? That/those deer is long gone and not available for exam. The article is just reporting the possible link and potential first...

    Is It Time To Stockpile Ammo?

    After seeing this opinion and logic expressed repeated online after the last 25 years, my answer is simple. No. It is not time to start stockpiling ammo. That you haven't done it already, means you have been missing all the signs throughout your adult life (you just turned 18/21). You are...

    Man killed attempting to stop a carjacking

    Side window glass isn't that thick. Either way, my point is that this isn't likely to be a bullet fail issue. It happens to police officers firing real police ammo, not gimmick ammo, not snake shot, not BB guns. As JohnKSa said, guns (and by extension, ammo/bullets) are not magic.

    Man killed attempting to stop a carjacking

    Happens to police officers using department issue ammo as there is their camera evidence documenting it. People do miss at close range and/or fail to connect meaningfully with their bullets.

    Wood Body Armor Plates?

    Exactly, this isn't a new article. This has been going on for years since the first announcement. How long does the scientific method take? In modern day, that is often a funding issue. Historically, some developments took decades to get right. I do like how so many have assumed it was a...

    Wood Body Armor Plates?

    How I wish costs were directly correlated with quality/capability/reliability/etc. Life would be so much easier.

    Wood Body Armor Plates?

    Wood would be no more illegal in said states as kevlar, ceramic, and steel, which aren't illegal in those states.

    dimes in a double barrel shotgun

    Well, yeah, if they were dropped in cattywampus, they could become their own obstruction. That would be bad. I was picturing properly loaded. :)

    dimes in a double barrel shotgun

    Not from an old shotgun. The metals in modern or 1880s dimes isn't going to hurt the barrel so long as the barrel isn't obstructed.

    ID this optic - looks odd or backward to me

    I read the article about a hour ago. While he was a commanding officer and I would think that he could have specialized in areas that were outside of being a good with weapons, I am not sure that is the case. "At sea he served as division officer aboard USS BATAAN (LHD 5); weapons and...

    Any firearm can be used self-defense in a pinch. Do you agree?

    What would be the alternative? You only use hunting rifles/pistols/shotguns for hunting, self defense rifles/pistols/shotguns for self defense, and target/competition rifles/pistols/shotgun for targets and competition? The firearms all simply launch a projectile(s) down range in a controlled...
