(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

Magorn: vudukungfu: From Philly to Boston: co-owner of Tactical Firearms.

Christ. they named it "Tactical Firearms"?
Really?

Someday, some person will have to explain to me why  adding rip-stop nylon cordura webbing or a rubber o-ring  to something automatically makes it tactical.   And while we are on the subject, is there such thing as a "strategic" Flashlight or AR-15?


I know next to nothing about AR-15s but live with regular power-outages.
A "strategic flashlight" has at least two of the following features:
1 - a lanyard - renders light wearable, allowing the user to operate hands-free while illuminating their crotch-ankle area
2 - a rubber hand-grip - allows user to employ tooth-grip, operating hands-free while practicing anti-gag reflex breathing (see appendix: "cardio/vascular conditioning")
3 - a free-motion handle - allows users to "mount" flashlight from any available source - nail, tree limb, goat horns (don't judge - in a crisis, anything may happen)
4 - a thin plastic bulb cover - easily breakable, in an emergency, the sharp edges may be used to open battery packaging (see appendix: "superficial wound care")

The cat that runs front-yard and porch operations could expound on "tactical flashlights" but is currently on R&R after a harrowing encounter with "red-dot-laser-light" during a failed mission named "Midnight Roach"

No, no.  He's right.  They owe 6.5 million which puts it just within the "political reasons" threshold.  Any more than that and it's a legitimate financial reason.

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!

strategic flashlights provide a comfortable amount of light for you to read maps and organize troop deployments, although the weight and size of the rifle attached to it make it somewhat impractical.

When I was a cop, they had just come out with the "Kel-light" and all the other cops were falling all over themselves trying to get a bigger one than the next guy. Apparently, you could load one big one up with batteries and beat someone over the head with it and do some serious damage. And size matters.
I learned how to tell who had anger management issues (all of them) and how bad, by how big their flashlight was.

For me, being in a confrontation was the last thing I wanted all day long.
So, while I was not like the others, I was great in negotiation situations.


That was one of the first Standard Cross examinations I ever learned, more geared towards suing Bars for the actions of their bouncers than cops but works either way:

Could you identify the item I have marked as Plaintiff's exhibit #1?

And this is YOUR "Maglite " is it not?

The same one you testified you used to help "subdue" my client?

Would you unscrew the top for me?

and would you pour out them contents?

Now that tube, it advertises the fact that it'made of super strong "aircraft grade aluminum" doesn't it?
and inside that tube were 5 d-cell batteries were there not?

 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?

And so you testified, that you stuck my client, repeatedly, with a metal pipe filled with more than a pound of lead, to "calm him down" because you "didn't want to hurt him"?

it's trickle down math.  By shutting down his store you're not only taking away jobs from his employees but those of the people who make the guns, the people who built the workshop where they make the guns, the people who help provide electricity to the place that makes guns, the dinosaurs that died to fuel the power to make the guns and the people that hunted those dinosaurs 6,000 years ago.

Because it's totally what our AMERICAN DEFENDERS use when fighting those BROWN DEVILS in the sand. Rubber helps with the grip, so that when you're sweating bullets in that 79 degree hell hole and being threatened by a BLACK NEGRO walking down your street you don't drop your AMERICAN DREAM MAKER from all the blood rushing to your penis at the thought of getting to shoot someone and then amidst the cries of racism you can slingshot a reverse racism about how you're only being picked on for being white.

And rip stop nylon or cordura is obviously tactical. It presents a smooth, stain resistant, light weight, fabric. All important factors for when you need to whip out the gunt knife. Or the MORBIDLY OBESE 50 MAG snub revolver from your belly button holster.

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.

I really want my name and particulars recorded by the feds from a gun shop that just plays the edge of reason, treason, sedition, or insane behavior. "You're not just a buyer, you're now a person of interest" should be one of the slogans.

I'll bet most gun buyers probably steer clear so the parking lot should be nearly empty.
