Hello Boys. Checking In With The Old Gang

Howdy boys. Been years since I've been here. See some familiar and fondly remembered names and a load of new ones.

General update:

Been blessedly retired since 2013 and am happier than I've been in over 30 years. Wife and I have some acreage in the high country in a rural area. Doing some mini-farming, raising livestock, goats and chickens and have a small herd of donkeys, 2 trail riders and a couple packers. Butted up against Nat Forest in some of the best elk, bear, turkey and mulie country in the state. Hiking, scouting and hunting at every opportunity. Oh, and I am a Papa now. Settled in and enjoying life as much as possible whilst keeping a close eye on the actions of the many foreign and domestic enemies and on 'Clown World' and 'Globohomo' antics. Training tactics and skills and also pleasure shooting frequently.

Anyway, hope all are well and enjoying life as it is now and all are readying for the upcoming sportiness.

    Yep. The scroungy frankenwolf bassturds roam here some. Their main range is just east of us.

    HPD, my Brother! Thanks for the welcome back.

    As to fudds and other such morons, good lord! How much abuse does one need to suffer and how utterly stupid does one have to be to remain fuddish in the face of an absolute mountain of facts and organization/govt mal-actions?

    Rhetorically, of course.

    Welcome back!! Patriots and constitutional conservatives always welcome. We have become a minority, even on a "pro-gun website."

    Yep, but as has always been the case, it falls to about III% who refuse to drink the kool-aid and who actually stand and advocate for actual liberty.

    It seems as if the vast majority are genetically wired to be hardcore or quasi-gov-sucklers and supporters, to one degree or another.

    Amusingly, many who are flat-out gov-sucklers seem to view themselves as 'patriots' and 'real' Americans while those III% are scorned, marginalized and deemed crazy or radical for daring to stray from the warmth and safety of the collectivist-herd.

    Funny that.

    The more things change the more they remain the same. And so goes the continuing fall of this 'once' Republic.

    Glad you've made it back LT, and happy to hear the news that you're a Papa now. Very nice. You might be happy to learn that I've seen a few names here give considered weight to the underhandedness of some of our would be allies and have switched from support to scorn. So not all it as it was, but a lot of it still it.

    So anyway, welcome and hope you get settled in.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
