  1. Texas Church Shooting

    Ya think? http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/09/air-force-reviewing-records-back-to-1996-working-247-to-plug-fbi-background-check-holes/
  2. Texas Church Shooting

    The only person responsible for this tragedy is the sick motherfcuker who pulled the trigger. Big Blue contributed by incompetence, but doesn't bear ultimate responsibility. I also don't necessarily want SAF/CSAF fired now unless there is a chain of firings from lowest to highest. THAT might get some attention and put lasting pressure on folks to do their job AND be judged by job performance. But, now that both the HASC and SASC have weighed in to grab some political attention, you can bet some senior heads (er, yes...) will roll. Because, you know, do something... BTW, I, as a gun owner am not responsible for this tragedy. Neither are the millions upon millions of legal, responsible gun owners in this country. I do want to, you know, do something, because... It is ultimately about control. Those who want to blame me want to assert their control. I'm agin that.

    Laws against shooting others as in murder. Check. Laws against using a firearm in the commission of a felony. Check. Laws against felons obtaining/possessing firearms. Check. Laws mandating felony convictions put entered into FBI's NCIS database. Check. Big Blue f'ing this up. Check. So, to some the solution is more government. The same government that can't do this. Sick fcuk, abusing his wife and his infant. Now this. Rot in hell, you motherfcuker. I also hope that Big Blue is named as a defendant in a giant civil case as being negligent and culpable and the families get huge dollars. I also hope OSI pogues and Holloman leaders in place at the time draw, at a minimum, career-ending paperwork. Those who are supposed to audit such processes as well. Do your fcukin' job, morons.

    I appendix carry which is comfortable to me except when driving. Then I transfer my XDS to a TexasCustomHolster mounted in each car. If you are handy with a drill, you can mount it yourself (sts). If not, a car upholstery shop can do it in less than an hour. My choice is based on the odds. Most events involve 2-3 rounds fired at less than 3 yards according to an (FBI?) report I read a while back. If it's a firefight, then I'm most likely to have a bad day, but as noted, perhaps I can buy time for the family to escape. Reports from a recent Colorado Wal-Mart shooting showed several CCW carriers pulling, but not engaging since they weren't around the shooter. They got out. This church-shooting scum ran when first engaged. The guys on the French train that confronted the guy with an AK and beat him. So it's not always completely hopeless

    I fail to see in this thread, to this point, where anyone suggested doing anything. The question was asked "Do you carry regularly?" To which several of us answered. Until receiving the cease and desist order Which I apologize for by not placing on my calendar to care when someone else tells me what I should or should not do or say.

  8. U-2 Dragonlady info

    No. USAF is supposed to provide air superiority, i.e., destroy enemy airplanes. We can't even kill (off) our own. Therefore, can we still do that mission? An attempt at ironic humor...
  9. U-2 Dragonlady info

    Well, sh1t...we do seem to have lost the touch about killing airplanes...
  10. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    There is not a compromise. This is an "either/or" issue. Neither side is going to give, and to my mind, it's only been one side that's ever 'given,' so it will be either Constitutionally settled permanently, legally temporarily, or bloodily.
  11. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Young man, I like the way you think. I see a promising future...
  12. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    It's against the law to shoot somebody unless in self-defense, right? It's against the law to murder somebody, right? Let's pass more laws. Riiiiiight....
  13. NFL Ratings are Way Down

    The very highly paid players have the right to protest and express their views. To do so against the symbology of our nation says to me that they are ashamed of the nation and of being an American. They scorn the very nation that allows them that freedom to protest. There are other, better ways to express your opinion than against one of things that is supposed to unite us. In fact, you (those protesting via the anthem) do more to divide us than your meaningless virtue-signaling. You protest your way, as is your right. I will protest you in my way. With my wallet.
  14. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    ABM (ret). Or meth dealer. Same thing really... And no desire to get behind of the yoke of anything other than a Cessna or an ultralight.
  15. Promotion and PRF Information

    It appears that this is a "forest and number of trees" situation. The Air Force isn't promoting more people to major. It will promote the same number of people. It is because people are bailing at what should be an alarming rate to the Air Staff that the percentage of those eligible is 100% on this board per the announcement. Bigger percentage of a smaller pool = same total numbers promoting. Not a net gain for anyone. Not sure if the "insecurity" thing was directed specifically, but in two more weeks I can hit the cigs aisle and Class VI with my retirement check for the month, so my dog in this fight is exceedingly small. Others do. As stated above, this is an administrative stop-loss to some. To others, it's a good thing. USAF does not seem to be addressing the fundamental issues and instead is trying different sized band-aids to stop the bleeding.
