      Drone in Texas

    Our county purchased a drone in November (with federal money)…it should be flying about now…

    So, my guess is…too late to do anything….if ‘they’ want it, they’ll do it.  It’s already done here.

      Wow! Wow! Wow!

    Thanks guys for the fabulous info!  Aaron & Joe & Jim, thank you for your time and thought into my situation!  You guys rock!  

    I like the idea of focusing on hand gun proficiency first.  This idea helps keep the ‘overwhelming’ thoughts in check.  One of the main reasons I haven’t done anything yet…so much to do, so little time and not sure where to start!  Now I do! woo hoo! Thank you!

    Have any of you heard of  http://360tacticaltraining.com/  ?  Thoughts?  CSAT seems more comprehensive in their training.

    Jim, I like the carbine idea, too – this looks like a good home option vs a shotgun, makes sense.  I also like that your daughter can shoot it!

      Alpha Mike…answers :)

    1. What are your perceived "needs" for your firearms?  

    We are somewhat off the beating path, but if there is a mass exit of people from the big city, we could see wanderers,  Homestead protection mainly, personal protection in the event I have to go somewhere without a rifle.  Secondary to security would be hunting, but not likely since we’re too close to the city and any game around would be gone in a matter of weeks. 

    2. How much time can/will you devote to practice?  

    Realistically, 10 hours/week  I really like the idea of that 2 day class in Nacogdoches.  We can shoot on our property (10 acres) but will probably want to go to shooting range starting out.  But, if I like shooting as much as I think I will, may spend more time at it!

    3. What’s a "general" budget for what you’d like to purchase?  I want to try and keep the total cost under $1000

    4. Are you opposed to the idea of carrying consistently?  No, will do CHL

    Thanks Aaron!

      China gold

    Not sure if they can get it on the internet, though.  

    ‘The Pan Asian Gold Exchange, due to open in June next year (2012), is part of a Chinese governments 5 year strategy to dominate the gold global market.’

      He wants no deflation…

    Here’s what I found on it…

     "If inflation itself falls too low or inflation expectations fall too low, that would be something we’d have to respond to because we don’t want deflation"

    Why are you interested in the "gamo silent air rifle" and which model are you interested in?

    [/quote]

    Gamo Whisper Air Rifle.22 w/Noise Reducer & Scope – Not likely I would shoot any squirrels (unless I was starving), but I do have a few armadillos & hogs that I want to get rid of!  (although not sure if this is adequate for hogs)  I’ve been reading tons of info on the web and this one keeps coming up as a ‘must have’.

      Question for you experts…

     The answer may lie in the 255 pages of posts here,  but holy cow, it would take all weekend to read!  So, apologies if this is redundant…

    Anyway…I am curious what experienced firearm owners would recommend for a female.  I have a 22 revolver currently.  Minimal shooting experience.  What is a good ‘starter’ package?  And the best place to learn & become an ‘expert’.

    Here’s a web article… anyone have an opinion?  Also…lol…any opinion on the gamo silent air rifle?

     http://www.primermagazine.com/2008/learn/hero-training-the-best-weapons-for-home-defense

    ty!

      lol heffe

    Sorry, I have to say something…

    heffe, you are full of yourself, honey.  Take it down a notch.  Save these posts and look back on them in 25 years…attitude is everything.  Arrogant self-promotion will only keep you down.  You are no better or worse than me or anyone else in this world.  See my post above.  While you try to change the world, remember, you can’t do it alone.  And you won’t be able to do it with just 20 somethings.  We are all in this together.  Yes, you are smart and obviously well educated.  But, that does not replace life experience, you would be wise to utilitze the wisdom of those around you.   You along with millions of others are suffering from this economic crisis.  Many more will follow.  Step down off your pedestal, knock that chip off your shoulder & build up your community resources – work on your preparations.  The crap in the world is the crap in the world.  Either you will prepare for what’s coming or you will be a victim.  You can argue the ‘points’ all day long, but that won’t change the global situation.  Spend time getting prepared instead of posting insulting & combative discussions about subjects you can’t do anything about.
