Though she has a lasso, Wonder Woman's first line of defense against guns are her bracelets.

Fake cowboy vs real cowboy.

Real cowboy wins.

One thing that really surprised me when I moved here was how many cowboy types are Mexican.  I guess it makes sense I'd just never thought of it.  In San Antonio it seems the vast majority of starched jean, pearl button shirt, boots, and belt buckle folk are Mexican.

FTFA : "The property owner said when Moras ran out of bullets, one of the rodeo cowboys lassoed him.  Other guests beat him and tied him up until deputies could arrive.  Doctors treated Moras for facial injuries before deputies took him to jail. "

I love a story with a happy ending.

I can hear the 911 call now.  "Yeah, we're out at the church having a picnic and rodeo.  Some drunk dumbass started shooting at people.  Have a deputy mosey on by.  No rush, we tied him up, he's not going to hurt anyone.  Some of the boys are letting off a little steam, you don't want to get here until they settle down a bit".

Well, Subby, if we have learned one thing from cowbody movies it's that a good guy with a lasso beats a bad guy with a gun hands down.

Never knew that works in the real world, too, though.

Rope beats gun which beats fists which beats rope? There must be some logic here.

Simple, the gun ran out of bullets.  So the trick is to not get shot first.

/Of course that is always the trick to surviving a shooting.

The defense weapon was a lariat or reata.
Lasso is a technique.

Roped a few calves as a lad.

Silly man, he thought he owned one of those Hollywood movie guns that never runs out of bullets. "I know what you're thinking...did I fire 1,048 or 1,049 bullets? To be honest with you in all the excitement I lost count..."
 
2014-05-27 07:35:29 PM  
Another responsible gun owner.

Until this weekend.

Empty H: Thank you.


As a 13 year old, at a ranch, who had made his own bullwhips and rope from leftover hemp twine as a child, they gave me a "training lariat" to rope with. I complained that it wasn't stiff enough for making a decent lasso with but my biggest concern was the fencing wire the used for the slip knot. It was wrapped around the rope taught, then bent around the free running rope so once it pulled snug, it would pull the wires apart and release. I said that it was dangerous. The cowhands laughed. They let a claa out of the gate, I went at it with the horse. Roped it first try, and it leaped on top of the slack and the rope ran down its belly. Once drawn taught, the wire opened, scrapped along the belly, and came out between its legs, Rock Mountain oysters an all. They now had a young steer on their hands and I had dinner.

That is a really good story! I wouldn't mind hearing more FARK Rodeo Romance tales...

Someone not on a phone needs to shop up a "How Lamestream Media Sees Lariats" poster with various ropes and tie downs all labeled as Lasso.

"Garcia said deputies brought a K9 onto his property as they searched for another man they thought might have been involved in the shooting."

Is a K9 something that we 'civilians' call a "dog"?

I like rodeo so as long as more people are interested in it, then I will get to see a live one from time to time.

They've been distracted by BENGHAZI and buying post-Isla Vista ammo before that usurper steals their guns (seriously, THIS time he will!). The cycle returns to dirty illegals eventually.

I doubt you did, or you wouldn't have the terminology wrong.  Lasso can be used both as a noun (the rope itself) or as a verb.

Bolo = lasso.
Necktie = Lasso
Jump rope = lasso

that should get them started.

I'm not a kid and I've never seen a 3D printer.  But I'm also not surprised that someone who made crap up and pretended to know what he was talking about would start talking about unrelated bullshiat.

You can keep being  a dick, though, I don't mind.  In another thread, I saw you posting that you went through the police acacdemy.  I expect this is your version of trolling.  You just claim to have experience in any given field, depending on the subject of that story.  I'll mark you as a lying troll and ignore your crap.  Have a crappy day, you deserve it.
