(KHOU Houston)   It takes a special kind of incompetence to fail at running a gun store in TEXAS, about the same level it would take to blame Obama for the bank's decision to foreclose now that you've been in default on your loan for more than a year   (khou.com) divider line 192

Click Click D'oh: holdeestrufs: Anyone know what would happen if I tried to shoot .30-30 ammo thru my .32 Winchester special? Tactical answers only please.  .32 Win Special ain't cheap.

Given the smaller neck diameter of the .30 WCF, you'd be lucky to not blow the case... which is no bueno.  Tactically.


Yep.  You would need to take 30-30 brass (not loaded and unprimed) and reform it into the .32 WS.  All that is needed would be a tactical reloading press and a set of .32 Winchester Special dies (the tactical kind of course).  Not a hard procedure as the 32 is just a necked up 30-30 case.

However, shooting a 30-30 in a 32 WS chamber is a very, very bad idea.

Um...Yo and Rent Party - sorry for the threadjack but thanks - his working class parents are really struggling to take time off work to be by his side and pay for a hotel near the hospital which is over an hour from home.

I can't believe the subject jackwad actually expects anyone with a brain to blame anyone but him for his crashing failure.

I just gave the little dude $50.

Get well soon, little man.

From Philly to Boston: "Right now our second amendment is under attack," said Jeremy Alcede, co-owner of Tactical Firearms.

Sounds like your ability to be a deadbeat is under attack.



Not just that, but an uncooperative deadbeat.  I sounds like the bank tried to give them a chance for a loan workout, but Mr. Gun Shop Guy just didn't want to be told what to do.  Owning a gun shop is probably about negative 4,000 on the bank's priority list.

Click Click D'oh: Magorn: and are you aware hat each d-cell batteries weighs roughly 5.1 ounces?

and are you aware that batteries of this type are called "lead-acid batteries because that is what they are made out of?

No... no no.

You never used this in court.

Someone would have called your BS if you did.

D Cell batteries are all dry cell.  There are no lead acid D cell batteries.

Dog Welder: bmr68: It's in a bad spot. The other problem(s) for the store is that there are many large gun dealers within 15 miles. Academy, WalMart, Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain,Carter's Country & 7-8 small gun shops similar to Tactical.

I figured their biggest problem (other than money mismanagement) is competition.  You'd probably have a hard time throwing a rock and NOT hitting a gun store in Katy, Texas.



My advice would be to not throw rocks at gun stores.

Welp, as a lifetime gun owner and ex-military member, I have two pieces of advice for you.

First we need to do some research. From dictionary.com:

"tac·ti·cal
adjective \ˈtak-ti-kəl\
: of, relating to, or used for a specific plan that is created to achieve a particular goal in war, politics, etc."


Here we arrive at the first piece of advice: If you don't know what a word means, look it up.

The second piece of advice is gun-related: Don't do that. If you must do that, be sure you're using a bench vise and standing back. :p

$1,715 so far.  Only about six million more to go!

/ Suckers.

Some dumb assholes gave him that much already?

My baby nephew who has cancer  is on there right now.  I wish I could take that $1715 and move it over to his fundraiser.

Give me the go fund me link, I will send a donation his way.  My nephew as been cancer free for about 3 months, another 9 to go until they will say he beat it!  Without the donations of lots of nice people, my sister would have had a real hard time paying her mortgage and bills.  Childhood cancer always forces at least one parent out of work.

Yeah, me too.  Sister just got done with the double mastectomy and a year of chemo thing.  I can spare some shekels for little kids.

Yeah, no....the bank can't just decide to foreclose because they don't like you, even if it's for "political reasons"

I suppose he can PROVE that he never missed a payment and then sue for wrongful lawsuit.

Are those crickets I hear?


Ha! You just don't get it. He WOULD sue the bank for wrongfully foreclosing on him for the singular purpose of restricting 2nd Amendment freedoms in Texas, but Obutthole personally controls the court system and has ordered the courts not to recognize his completely true and totally legitimate claims. Then he put the crack forgery team that created his fake birth certificate to work drafting falsified bank records just to drag this God-fearing Patriot through the mud and make him look guilty. The Dictator-In-Chief will do anything at all to make sure that this fine American hero gets shut down. Once the store is closed, Texans will no longer have a place to go to buy firearms, resulting in de facto gun control in America's greatest state. Oboogereater knows that he can't get a repeal of the 2nd Amendment past the Tea Party guardians of freedom through legal means, so once again he is making an end-run around the constitution and bypassing congress to implement his personal political agenda through executive fiat. It's all quite obvious once you know what to look for and learn how to block out the lies of the liberal media. Study it out!

 Yeah, and I bet even Gander Mountain doesn't employ 150 people like he claims to.
 There is a tiny half-baked 'tactical' shop every square mile where I live, all of them in little backwater commercial strip storage buildings, all of them struggling, and all of them staffed by two to four ignorant yahoos who think forwarded emails are the only reliable news source. None of them have the price, stock, or selection of the legitimate shops that have been here for decades.

/Even our local Ace Hardware has a better selection, stock, and pricing than these guys, even of the 'tactical' stuff. Hell, around here, even the little freaking -WALGREENS- has a better stock most of the time.

THX 1138: If he's up to date on all his loans and the bank is simply shutting him down for political and vindictive reasons, then why is he trying to raise 6.5 million dollars to get out of arrears on his bank loans?


It likely isn't just arrears, it's most likely the total of principal, interest, bank fees, costs/expenses/attorney's fees/etc..  When the bank forecloses on a mortgage after a debtor's default, they accelerate the debt (i.e. everything is due now, asshole); if you look in your mortgage you'll see an "optional acceleration" clause, which allows your bank to "accelerate" the debt after you default on payments,etc. but does not necessarily require the bank to do so (i.e. its at the bank's option).  Most jurisdictions (and almost every contract in said jurisdictions) require the debtor to tender all amounts due (again, principal, interest, bank fees, costs, etc.) to prevent forced sale (the debtor's right to pay such amounts is called a "right of redemption").

So in short, the gunshop owner might only be a few thousand behind, but him and his partner's unwillingness to engage in reasonable loan workout options has forced the bank to attempt to recover anything they can from the debtor's assets before the debtor can squander them further.

Did you actually read that link?

"Store changes banks" doesn't really fit the "Obama is the devil" narrative some folks seem to want to pursue...heck, the original bank might just have decided their theft liability premiums were too low.

Selling guns IS a little riskier than selling, say, ice cream.
 
2014-06-26 11:30:09 AM

PunGent: "Store changes banks"


Which does not preclude the new bank from doing the same thing as the old bank once 'pressure' is appied. That is the nature of this operation - pressure the larger banks first and work down from there.


Selling guns IS a little riskier than selling, say, ice cream.

Of course, but on the flipside, it can also carry a much greater ROI.  If risk was the only metric of any bank, there would't be any loans.

Overall, it is not that "Obama is the devil', but just that he is trying to do what he can on the gun control front since he has been shut down on the Assault Weapons Ban and a host of other gun control legislation.  I don't agree with this and will do what I can to stop it, but I don't believe that he is the devil.
