    You know. You might be on to something. What if off duty police donated time to guard the schools their children attend and then the city will credit them at time and half pay scale in property tax credit. That way, the officer has no extra income to pay income taxes on, our children are guarded and the city just has to do without one convention trip or christmas party.

    Yeppers there's just something about a forged blade. Frost is a Scandinavian knife company, well made. Cold Steel, Case, Old Schrade's and Benchmade are a few of my favorites.

    Most multiple gun owners I know preach safety and respect for a guns power. People should want more gun advocates who're are responsible because they're good role models.

    Hey, if you know about knives maybe you can school me about something.

    I stumbled across a knife during a unit clean out. It was left behind with a lot of other junk. It mau just be junk. I dunno. But it looks like one of those big Crocodile Dundee knifes. It's says stainless and China on it. It seems to be of pretty good quality but I'm no expert.

    Have you ever seen one like it before? Do you think it has any value?

    I'm inclined to say, not so much. First up is, the blade of the knife is cut off before the grip, by an inch or so. Bad sign. Does the tang go through the grip? Judging by the angle of the blade to the handle, not likely. Another bad sign.

    I wuld say that this is just an ordinary, made in China, "bad" looking knife. Compare this one to a Buck knife, and you'll see a LOT of differences. The edge of this thing is really pronounced, making it likely very hard to sharpen, over a period of time. Also, just made in China is not a good sign. The best metals, and metalurgy, are actually processes performed by the best cvompanies. The best knives are not forged by metals that exist naturally, typically, except for VG japanese steal. This is likely nothing more than a nice souvineer.

    haven't you figured out that crime control is not Moot's goal? its disarming conservative males apparently. that is why the gun control crowd never can make logical arguments based on crime control

    I'm not fussy, ban all semi-automatics...retro-actively of course.

    Explain how you would go about making a non semi-auto hand gun?
    Is that a trick question? Multiple chambers, single barrel? And or multple chamber, double barrel? One round per trigger pull. How am I doing on the quiz?

    everyone i know who hunts in texas carries a 44 or higher as a side arm,not cuz of jamming,but because when you are deer hunting,and a deranged boar gets ready to charge,you pop of all your bolt action rounds and hes still standing,you could reload but your best bet is to grab a high powered revolver and pop off as many as you can into tha boar.

    in both bears and boars,precise shots count,a slight failure means a pissed off animal,and if your in texas,hunting anyting means youll probably run into a boar,theyare so huge and overpopulated here cities in certain areas actually pay hunters to kill them and set up no limit kill zones for them.boars are just crazy,3 30-06 rounds to the head and they just shake it off like nothin happened,if you didnt hit your mark a 44 cal or higher is needed or your dead.

    TD. How can we keep the super dooper toys in the hands of the good guys, like yourself, and out of the hands of the bad guys?

    I think that is what we should ALL be talking about.

    That's the main objective.

    Got any ideas that might actually work? I'm coming up blank over here.
