Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano : "Gun control? Its the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy I'm always going to have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins."

Hmmm...... That says it all.

Rich San:

You have such a refreshing politcally incorrect attitude that it is a pleasure to read your posts on this area.

BTW do purchase the NRA's offering "Guns of the Old West". Full of info illustrations and beautifully bound.

They should have called you on it.

Last Weekend when I was in NH I saw a book on the shelf entitled: "The Right to Keep and Bear Arms".

Thinking the best I picked it up and read a bit. To my astonishment we owners who believe in the right were reviled, insulted, called insecure etc. etc.

So I bought the book, then asked the manager to deposit it in his round file.

He said "works for me, your book".

Fortunately there was only one copy on the shelf.

When I purchased my Sharps this week (and a 1911 clone GHM) I went to jiffy lube immediately after.

The law in Mass. was always in Mass that you could not leave a "handgun" unattended in motor vehicle-this has been extended (my reading ) to "long arms" (neither quote as described in the law) so I waited in the waiting room with my buffalo gun across my lap (in a case as a mercy to the politically correct).

The manager asked me if I could put the weapons in the car trunk and I responded "no-that's not legal".

I have already quoted this incident on another post, so if you caught it, bear with me.

I'll let you know how the Safari Arms clone shoots. Kimber, SA and Para will not presently ship to Mass, so my choice was limited.


I would have preferred the Kimber or Para.

JT: Me? Poltically incorrect? No, in the Richmond Uechi family that is Bill Glasheen sensei's job.

I am just a believer in personal responsibility for defending ones self and loved ones. Here, in Henrico County VA, our police department is very proud to be ranked #1 in response time to 911 calls in the state and in the top 5% nationwide. The average response time is just over 4 minutes. Pretty good!

However, in published crime stats, such as noted in Lott's or DeBecker's books, the average home intrusion takes about 41 seconds from the time you hear the first sound until you are gazing upon the intruder. Or on the street, you have about three seconds.........

By the time help arrives, if you get a call off, your body will already be cooling off to room temperature.
