If the Big City Nonsense ever spills out into the hinterlands, they are going to run into a bunch of guys who, unlike the “Not F---ing Around Coalition,” know how to handle a firearm properly -- US!
Perfect meme, though -- after all these years, he still has the steely, direct gaze which conveys the fact that no matter who you are, he's still obeying General Order 2 and 7, the proper position of port arms, closed bolt (because he's ready to send rounds down range if ordered or to fix his bayonet or to just buttstroke you ...) but yet his finger is not within the trigger guard (because the safety is off). I have no doubt he could lay the Garand down and pick up his Ka-Bar (which is no doubt on the table beside him) and go to work equally well. Once a Marine ...

Careful John, this is a little political. Myself, I dare them to protest whatever, near our land! It't hard to believe that cities allow these radicals to to loot, burn and attack our LEO's. The left wing highly payed media is the instigator!
Well, I have to stop there! But I do support our military and first responders! Defund the Police? WTF!
You got me wound up now John. Think I'll try and take a nap. And think about getting that 1948 Chevy 2-Ton to JohnnyRib in S.E. Missouri Sunday. And you thought you were good at stealing threads!
Edit: BTW the new 12,000# winch worked well loading it!

I'm ready for anything or nothing. Hoping for nothing, but then hope is not a course of action.
I did take my "new to me" M1 Garand out a few weeks ago. It shoots nice and straight. The best part is that it doesn't bother my shoulder at all!! Unlike my 30.06 Arisaka.
On top of all that, I "misplaced" my 1911. I recently travelled with it, and figured someone snatched it or I left it at one of my relatives places'. I really felt naked without it, so I purchased the same model as I had before. It also shoots nice and straight!! Bigger'n (censored), I was digging around in my desk drawer and "found" a pistol box with my original 1911.. duh.. I don't even remember putting it there.... my wife prolly stuck it in there when she was unpacking.
My "Up-armored" Ram 1500 has a couple of .45 ACP's stashed away in oddball locations- - - - -a 1911 and a Bersa Thunder, plus a box of ammo. My carry piece is a Polish P-64 in 9 X 18 Makarov. The pocket rocket and a spare magazine might get me to my truck where the real firepower lives! I think it was Col. Jeff Cooper who said "A handgun is only good for fighting your way to a rifle!"
