They won't be the only ones watching.

LOL, OP's never coded anything apparently.

I've got 3 or 4 pairs, pick 'em up at thrift stores or on sale. Essential for kayaking, canoeing, etc.

This is a first-term asshole who just happens to own a bunch of Smoothie King franchises.

All the legislature did was move it out of committee for a House vote. Still has to pass the Senate and Govenor. This is not a done deal.

in order to lure Palestinians to locations where they can be targeted.

Makes sense. Then the article repeats, over and over again, that the quadcopters are shooting people. I'm not aware of a quadcopter capable of shooting. Which brings the whole thing into question.

All the, "We're gonna DIE!" posts come from people that never lived the Cold War.

Meh. I live on the Hurricane Coast and they say this every, single, year. Been fairly tame the last few seasons.

OTOH, ocean temps are up, even over predictions. Not certain about the Gulf of Mexico, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't higher than predicted.

Crossbows are strictly out. A wooden bolt will explode under the pressure.

41o out of those guns sucks. The rifling makes the shot come out in a pinwheel. I've got a derringer like that. Most useless gun I own, out of many.

You could shoot birdshot at me from 15' and not a single pellet would land.

Neat! I knew that but the pic is worth 1,000 words.

LOL, who did this?!

Where do I begin to even see if I'm interested?

I'm wanting something to run around the hood and offroad, mostly in deep sand. An electric version of this: https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/coleman-mini-bike-bt200x-g

What else do I need to be concerned about?

Got a couple of acres in a NW Florida swamp. Been hearing Barred Owls for years.

How do I spot one? And tricks other than sitting still and being quiet? They seem to come pretty close. Can I "bait" them somehow with a box or something they would like to visit?

Funny story: First night I camped, three were doing their call/response thing. Every time they called, closer, and closer. Freaky sounding, one of the calls sounds almost like a child crying out.

For some reason, my idiot self thought coyotes were closing in. (Yes, I know well what coyotes sound like.)

Got a little freaked, grabbed my .410 (tiny shotgun) and decided to take the fight to them, scare 'em off (didn't want them rooting around my site). Again, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, promptly got lost.

Got home, "Hey Google! What do coyotes sound like?" Oh FFS. I am not a clever man.

Saw a Pileated Woodpecker the other day though! Super cool and way bigger than I thought.

Probably just not feasible, but I have many pistols and the 1911 is what I'm best at. I carry an LCP MAX and some other .380s, but I'm not so hot with those. Also have a slightly larger Ruger 9MM that works great. Just about can't miss with the Colt Government Model.

I suppose the answer is to practice, practice, practice with the smaller guns?

It stands to reason he must have been doing something right to have stayed so close to the halls of power.

I was a toddler when he was carpet bombing Cambodia, never knew him as anything but "an important person" that was sometimes on the TV. Only learned of his crimes in the past decade.

How did an in-your-face war criminal retain such influence for so long?

I'm an old (GenX), straight, white, American guy, but I'm right with you all.

I might say things that are offensive, because I can't pretend to be in your shoes and might get something wrong. I'm often just trying to understand. Hell, I didn't figure out that gay rights are civil rights, my rights, our rights, until 10+ years ago.

It's 100% OK if you want to keep this a non-cis space. I get that and won't be butthurt.

(If shotguns are your jam, I got many more to post! Weirdly, of all the antique and vintage shotguns I have, this cheap-ass Turkish thing runs like a dream.)
