XO, do you know of many investments that have appreaciated as well as firearms and ammunition in recent years?

==================================================
I do not know how much firearms or ammo have appreciated in recent years. You have not posted this. You cannot compare figures from "recent years", either.You would have to state the percentage increases for EACH SPECIFIC year for anyone to make a valid comparison.

The threat of violence has certainly increased far more slowly than the increase in gun sales, I am pretty sure. I doubt that anyone is less safe in most of the country than he was in 2008. But again, I do not know what precise figures would be needed to measure this.

Now I see that the idiot sirs is threatening me.

Fricken how am I doing that??      :o      You don't grasp the image??  I've used it many times before, with not a whiff of some supposed "threat".  That was a response to your post, in that the point went way over your head.  Capice'??

Well, actually XO is more right than most in here.

Home protection: Depending on the intentions of the desperado who has entered your home uninvited it might not be good idea to lock and load your shotgun so that he can hear it. Not only have you told him what you're carrying, you gave away your location.  If he's a smart desperado you have told him what he wants to know.

Personally I sleep with one of these within reach: http://www.treemanknives.com/tek9.asp?pg=products&specific=jqjqmrlmk

One hell of a knife. It will kill anything you need to kill.

....so long as the person gets arm length from yas.  Personally, I'd rather they not get that close

He may know where I am, and what I'm carrying, but he'd best also know it is pointed in his general direction, with the safety off and my finger on the trigger, and loaded with 00 buckshot.

What a surprise..(not).....no back-up, just more back-talk


Also couldn't help but notice how fast both our leftists bsb & xo dropped the Clinton defending & gun-nut garbage, as soon as they caught wind that H wasn't likely going to be agreeing with them on either.  No surprise there, as well

If you have three guns, four will not make you feel safer.

Gun nuts are to excess guns what Imelda Marcos was to stylish footwear.

Why not just wear a pistol in a holster around the house?

If you saw off the barrel of your shotgun, it will fit the holster more comfortably.

That tends to be uncomfortable and get in the way. Easier to have one easily accessible wherever I go. Hidden, but accessible.

You know, if folks like myself or Cu4 were to have made similar comments, messers BsB & Xo would be raining all forms of gun-nut verbage down upon the source.  Go figure

It is truly unjust how all the things that occur to sirs imagination....... occur to sirs imagination.
