Re: Grandma and her ccw

My friend and I both CCW all the time except at work. We were sitting in our local large national coffee chain store(?) and apparently my friends muzzle was showing from under his jacket and I honestly was wearing mine open carry. A lady came over and asked if we were LEO's and we said no (even tho ...

Re: Springfield XD vs Glock 17 vs Smith and Wesson M&P

I have both the Springfield and the M&P but both in .40, I am a fan of both (obviously), but if I HAD to choose a favorite, I would go with the M&P. It is not because one is better then the other or anything technical - it is simply that I LIKE the M&P better, thus I shoot it more and I have become ...

Re: May have gotten my doctor on board

My doc is on the extreme side of the political isle (sp?) and he is a old school survivalist "preppers are just practicing". Anyway, you get the drift. He knows that I am a prepper and we have built a trust as both like minded (ish) people and professionally. He being a Dr. and me an RN, he has offe...

Re: Self intubation on the operating table

You know, it's stopped mattering to me. I was responding as much to the self-aggrandizing tone and insipid melodrama of his posts, as much as I was the technically dubious stuff. Still doesn't sound plausible to me, but it was better written than most of the troll posts we get. I piled on early, th...

I will even accept a PIC of a official letter head note from the staff that was in there confirming the incident. I would also like the phone number of the staff so we can verify. Sorry...

Ok, I will play... I will revert to a motto often sung on this site.

Re: Good stethoscope

So as I progressed through my career in the medical fields, I still have my original sprague stethoscope that I used on the bus. However, now I am a RN on a cardiac ICU. I decided that after 2 years, I should buy a GOOD set of ears. I bought a Littman Cardiology III. It is very similar to a sprague....

I am really stunned that George threw that one shot so that Chris would have a chance - I'm not sure how I feel about that. I know Chris needed the $$$ more than George. I'm guessing that's why George did it; he might have figured that Chris' kid going to college was bigger than him buying a bunch ...

All I have to do is ask to see their permit and ID they were issued. If they cant produce it, then I get on the phone and report them. AND the cops actu...
