First prayers for all that died and those that were wounded and hurt .
This act was well planned out and I assume there was only one shooter but in a photo there was two windows out on the same floor and quite a distance apart that were knocked out .? Hopefully the facts will be released and we will have most of the answers to the question of the two windows being knocked out .
All the pieces just don’t fit or to me they don’t , his age , his back ground , the method of attack , along with the two windows .

They are picking corn here so I had a truck load dumped in the grain bin . I had to move a LPG tank to run the dryer but it is dry and ready to feed the live stock when I need it . My auger motor was a bit ch to crank but after a new gas new plug and cleaning the flywheel a oil change and a new pull cord it fired right up . It is old as dirt so now I got to patch a few places in the tube were the rust has ate a few holes in it so it will be ready for next year .

Well swamp is dead on the truth , It’s an island in the path of most storms . It would seem that they would be prepared for such events but they did not take steps to be prepared so the blame lies with the leadership . They had days to get there act together but they failed the people but the leadership is doing A OK living on supplies that should have been stationed in different areas to aid the people . I also agree that the people should have been prepared for what was to come so there is plenty of blame to go around . When people depend on the government to come to there aid in the event of such events then they will lose or die every time .
It is sad that people of the Keys, Texas and the Island suffered loses but they know that living in such areas come with dangers that others do not face and not to be prepared for such is there own fault .
The news broadcasters are like a buzzard looking for that dead road kill so they can feast , they search just for that right shot and view and sing there song over and over .

Virginia Discussion, News and Weather • Re: Prepping Fatigue?

September 21, 2017 ajax727 0

In a way I will agree the mass media has driven a few to prep but there are a few of us that have been at it for years and are in good shape if things go down hill . There is a lot of trouble in the world today and that is the main reason I will keep adding to our preps . I talk more here than other places and now I don’t talk to others people that much anymore .I know of other locals that prep but we don’t talk that much only when we see each other in town , feed store , or local gas station .
Some are fly by night or just as a trend but the few that stay the coarse are still on coarse and understand what could happen at anytime . Money gets tight and that slows down prepping , sickness ,accidents , or just things happen and they all effect prepping . Like myself I did not plant a big garden this year due to health reasons but I still added items as I could . I did not can things but I added can goods veggies , fish , meats .
On a side note with all the spying that is being done some just want to remain in the shadows .

September 21, 2017 ajax727 0

Well heck a little story the other week I was attacked by a drunk who was also high as a kite on meth . I am only 6 feet 180 this fellow was a lot bigger than myself . 6′ 4 ” around 260 . He suckered punched me trying to knock me out a jaw shot second was when I turned my head this time was in the back of my head . I was stunned but only for a split second , when I came out from behind the counter he was at the door going out , when I got to the door and out he was in his truck burning rubber getting away .
Now this fellow was all rabbit when he saw his best shot had very little effect and the second one did not put me down he ran . I did not have my weapon on me it was in my truck so it was of no help but in the long run it was better I did not have it on me or I would have been in the gray bar motel facing manslaughter charges . The local law did not fill out no paper work , so I assume he is one of there rats , He does have a record and has spent time in the local jail this is a fact so he was know to the officers . I researched him and know all about him . I did the job the local cops should have done But only four cops showed up so they are not to bright also one made a statement that reflects about me not the thug .His face was clear as a bell on store cameras , his tag number was also clear as a bell and they did not recover his name from card reader he used to purchased gas and other items .
One I let my guard down my error , I did not keep my eyes on him . Two I did not have my weapon on me also my error or he would have been all wet in a pile in the store . Three If I would have went to my truck and followed him down the road and shot him I would have faced charges . I learned a lesson , not to let my guard down also to keep an eye on all people .also no matter what now my weapon will be on my side or under my arm .
I have been in a few fights , yes I have won a few and lost a few , On my feet or on the ground I can defend myself . It always don’t go as you think it would or as the bs movies show . When our paths cross again and in time they will I will not give him a chance I do have one hell of a punch that has been known to break jaws , ribs and shatter teeth .
Side note this is rural and he was not local here but lives a few miles away in a very small town .

Other weapons • Re: Country Weapons vs City Weapons

September 20, 2017 ajax727 0

Most people in the rural areas use what is needed to do the job be it a rifle a handgun or a shotgun . Like icefire said a shotgun or rifle on a tractor would get in the way of work unless it has a cab then it could be kept in a handy position . Most carry a hand gun it could be cannon or a peashooter aka a 44 mag or 22 .
As for the martial arts or knife it might work in the city but when you bring a knife or a chop chop kick kick to a gun fight well you know the results it is snap crackle pop no more chop chop .
A shotgun in the city would work fine pistol grip legal short barrel loaded with #4 or #6 , up close it would make a mess of the target a few yards more it would do the job also add a few more yards and it would spray the target .

It seems they are more interested in getting money than helping people .
Yes they do some good but they like to have very high paid leadership .
Your local church should be able to locate other churches in the area and what is sent would go directly to the people that need help , without sucking up the goods and money sent . Side note a small church not the big money hungry ones .

I did sent some money but to a couple of friends to use as they seen fit , for gas for boats , gas for their trucks or meals . I sent it to his bank account from mine it was simple and easy all I need was the bank location I know his name .
I also agree the church will do a better job helping than any other group . There will be a lot of fraud with the fly by night money grabbers .
I lost my company when a hurricane came by destroyed my production building and three other buildings and two shelters . I did ask for help to rebuild but was turned down for funding . From that point on I refuse to ask for help from the state government or any group or person . It was a hard lesson but I learned from it .

Well heck people were warned that there would be a massive amount rain with this storm , yet the people did not listen to the warnings . They were also told that it would move back into the Gulf and then back into the mainland . The old saying “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink ” applies .
Yes it is tragic but people should have listened to the warnings and took actions to prepare for it . I may sound cruel but the truth is the truth .
Fake news such as the airport photo or the shark in the water should be checked out before people lose there minds over it or speak of it as facts . The one good thing is that the people of Texas came to the rescue of fellow Texans with boats and other aid .
There is also a cry for people to send money to this group or that group such as the Red cross , people should research them and see were the money truly goes the facts seem to be it don’t all go to aid those that need it but of coarse the leaders of the groups line there pockets first oh and do a fact check before you say I am wrong . The top dog of the R C salary is around 625.000 bucks a year . They also say they give 91% of the money but have changed that , also the federal government refunds most of the money they spend . ( fact check this fact )
I will say if you want to send funds send it to a local church (not one of the big money hungry ones ) they know how to use it wisely in there area it would be used to feed and cloth the needy .

I told a fellow he could have the coins in a bucket if he could pick it up by the handle , when he tried to pick it up the handle came off the bucket I knew that would happen it also helped that the bucket was nailed to the barn floor .

It is supply and demand here they have the gas and they demand more for it . I have a few gallons on hand but that will be used if it goes on up but 300 gallons want last too long , I filled up my underground tank a while back when it was cheaper and put a lock on the pump .
