    I think you diminish the MOH if you award it based on political considerations.

    The UPS man brought The second generation (1956) Colt SAA I bought for $900 a while back. I think I got a good deal, what do you think? Ok, I did do a “little” work to it (including a good bit of metal work, engraving, checkered ivories, and refinishing by Turnbull). The $900 was a drop in the bucket. I still love the result. I am just not adding up the bills!

    Bought myself a brand new Impala LS. Small V-6 and still way too many gizmos and gadgets for my taste, but..... Local dealer was selling most of his inventory at discounted rates because of hail damage a couple of months back. Their insurance repaired the damage, but they marked them down anyway. Mine was a demonstrator with about 3,000 miles on it and it's a 2018 model and the 2019s are already on the lot. .... and I cleaned out my Money Market account which wasn't making me any money anyway and paid cash for the car. Bottom line is I saved $6,021.00 dollars from the window sticker price, and even got a color I could live with: white! Hooray for my side. BTW, did you know the phrase "hooray for our side" came about because Lady Godiva rode side saddle? There will be a test on this later.

    Yes; if you can do it safely. Allowing a long gun to fall should never be the preferred choice. If the muzzle does not break the 170 ; then I would assign the only penalty that applies to what actually occurred; which would be the MSV. If my gun is falling; I'll eat the penalty. I earned it. But if the TO can safely stop my gun from falling; I shouldnt be penalized further with a dirt filled or broken gun.

    There comes a time to say”enough”. I respect his decision and his service. Set politics aside. Condolences to him and his family. I hope your final moments are gentle, sir.

    Before he was elected to Congress, Representative Billy Long ran an auction company in southwest Missouri. His approach to a protester today was pretty cool. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/05/rep-billy-long-auctioneer-drowns-out-protester-shouting-at-twitters-jack-dorsey-during-hearing.html

    On a first date: He: “I work with animals every day!” She: “Oh how sweet! What is it that you do?” He: “I’m a butcher.” ________________________________________________________ You know you're ugly when you get handed the camera every time they make a group photo. ________________________________________________________ After work, I volunteer to help blind children. By the way – verb, not adjective ________________________________________________________ “Siri, why am I still single?!” Siri activates front camera. ________________________________________________________ My friend surprised me for my birthday with a book called ‘Road-Kill Recipes’. I did find some road-kill the other day, so I cooked it according to one recipe and it was delicious. I’m just not sure what I should do with the bicycle. ________________________________________________________ I’ll never understand how you can come up second in a biathlon. I mean – you’ve got a gun, haven’t you?! ________________________________________________________ The doctor gave me one year to live. So in the heat of the moment, I shot him. The judge gave me 15 years. Problem solved! _________________________________________________________ Cremation. My final hope for a smokin’ hot body! _________________________________________________________ I found these jokes here: https://short-funny.com/sarcasm-black-humor-4.php#ixzz5P7AEq0hU I should give credit where credit is due. One last one: A guy asks his waiter at a restaurant how they prepare their chicken. The waiter goes blank for a second, then says, “Nothing special really... We just tell them they're going to die...”

    Ever started with someone saying, “I was sitting, having a salad one day...” so, here goes... I was walking into a saloon one day, when I looked down and spotted two brand new tennis balls on the ground in the parking lot. I was considering buying some anyway, to use as a therapeutic aid for my sore arches, so I picked them up and put them in my pocket for safekeeping whilst I was having a nice icy-cold Shiner. After a while, this lady bellies-up to the bar, orders a beer and turns her gaze towards me and my mid section. “So, watcha’ got goin’ on down there, cowboy?” she says. Realizing what she was looking at, I sheepishly replied, “Tennis balls”. She looks at me kinda funny, and says, “Ouch, that must really hurt. I had tennis elbow once and it was really painful”. I spit out a mouthful of beer, the barkeep fell on the floor in the fetal position laughing, and a woman standing next to me fainted. OK, who’s next?

    I haven't been to a movie theater since 1981. I think it is a waste of money and needless exposure to germs.

    I really don’t mind an actor or entertainer that has different views than I do, most do. It’s the ones that wear their politics on their sleeve. The manipulators. The ones that push their beliefs on others and do anything they can to push those beliefs. Those are the ones I go out of my way to take money from and not support in any way.

    That boy obviously has a much overinflated opinion of his importance in the grand scheme of things, don’t he?

    A crusty old Sergeant Major found himself at a gala event hosted by a local liberal arts college. There was no shortage of extremely young, idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Sergeant Major for conversation. "Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?" "Negative, ma'am. Just serious by nature." "The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks like you have seen a lot of action." "Yes, ma'am, I have, a lot of action." The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, "You know, you should lighten up a little. Relax and enjoy yourself." The Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner. Finally the young lady said, "You know, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?" "1957, ma'am." "Well, there you are. You really need to chill out and quit taking everything so seriously!? I mean, no sex since 1957!? She took his hand and led him to a private room where she proceeded to "relax" him several times. Afterwards, panting for breath, she leaned against his bare chest and said, "Wow, you sure didn't forget much since 1957!" The Sergeant Major, glancing at his watch, said in his matter-of-fact voice, "I hope not, it's only 2130 now."

    Yesterday I was walking to my car from the grocery store with two bags of groceries, there was young girl in front of me pushing a cart LOADED with groceries. She looked to be about 25-30, I saw the 3 cases of water in her cart and said "Oh crap I forget water"!! She smiled and we both went on our way. I was getting in my car when she came up to me with a case of water, (24 bottles) and said, "God told me to give you this, please take it!" I was shocked! I said "you don't have to do that", her response was, "Yes I do, enjoy" There are some really nice people in this world, I think the human race has a chance after all!

    You have an issue with my sesquipedalian loquaciousness? The use of sufficient verbiage to adequately and completely satisfy the explanation or to outline the thought being conveyed is neither a vice nor a fault. I am compensated not by the letter or word; but by the knowledge that my conceptual delivery has been fully supported by the information provided. neener neener boo boo

    I prefer shirts that are brief, without a 8 line message that you can’t read in passing (and if it’s a lady wearing it, you look like a pervert standing there staring at her chest). I also like it if the message is one not everybody gets.......but some do, and smile.

    Nope. He was decorated for his POW time, but his service does not live up to above and beyond the call in combat. Compare his combat service against the Air Force NCO was was just awarded the Medal. No comparison.

    The moment the THIRD round hits the third target. At that exact moment - the triple tap requirement/ direction is satisfied and completed. It is done. AFTER following that specific instruction; the shooter moves to the next direction. Which is place the 10th round on any plate. Two separate instructions. And two separate actions There is no QUAD tap; After the triple tap; that instruction ceases to apply and the shooter proceeds to the next required action. Shooter has fulfilled the instruction to the letter. Three triple taps. Followed by a single tap.

    After one drink too many, I ended up with an idea. May be a bad one. May not. I thought it would be fun to do a "throwback" style match. Props to handle on the clock, targets out a little farther than normal, split shotgun, pistol and rifle reloads, etc. Stages like Chuckaroo wrote when I lived in Maryland. Look at that @Chuckaroo #13080 Regulator, you're an inspiration ! Today I finished writing the stages. I still have one prop to get (anyone got a spare leather bag or empty shot bag lyin around?). I ran them by one of our local match directors and got the go-ahead. We're working out a date, November 11 is likely for Cowboy Town here outside Sacramento, pending the weather. It is the rainy season after all. Even better, there's a regular match on Nov 10, so it'll be 2 in a row! Anyway, my point of all this is, if you're not happy with something, or want to initiate some change, then do it! Who knows, it might actually work out. Doc

    While I admire him for his resistance to the North Vietnamese, where he performed as we expect our officers to when captured, I do not believe that his actions deserve the Medal Of Honor. At the time of his release from the Hanoi Hilton the Navy decided what awards were appropriate, and awarded them. If the Congress of the United States Wishes to honor him with a congressional gold medal they can do it, but then MOH is something that should be reserved for valor above and beyond what is expected. Just the view from my saddle. Duffield
