Re: Don't Pee on the Alamo

The Alamo is a shrine, and as such demands decorum. When I visited, I was surprised by all the posted rules. You can't even wear a T-shirt in the place if it has profanity printed on it.

Re: This Makes Me Sick

Just be careful about making judgment. It could be that these letters are sent by those who want the general public to riled up by perceived racism, rather than sent by actual racists. We have no idea who sent these letters.....could be anybody.

Re: left eye dominate, right handed shotgun stance

I'm surprised none of you have answered kitty's basic question. Her instructor is telling her - she is right-handed, but left-eye dominant, and is handling the shot gun like a right hander - that she is being told to have her left foot back, rather [more]

Re: Pathetic trolls

Can someone tell me why 2828 had such an issue with posts being pulled? There are many others here like Fleg, Wolf, tele, etc, who post many conservative posts that don't have recurring issues with posts being pulled.

Re: Don't Pee on the Alamo

I've been to the Alamo and I understand it's a very important historical landmark.

But to sentence someone for peeing on a landmark for 18 months in prison with NO possibility of parole is insane. People who rob banks, or rape, or commit [more]

Re: bad news....saw this on Best of...Phil Marti

Although I didn't know Phil very well, I have conversed with him on multiple topics and on multiple boards.

I've always found him to be very informative and easy to talk with. He will be very missed.

Re: A bit OT, but still fascinating

Yeah, it may seem counterintuitive, but if there is a correlation between penalties and success, it's probably because the penalties are indicating aggressive play. Also, think of all the infractions that are not caught by the referees that may [more]

Re: shotgun stance/cross post

That's exactly what I did.

The instructor told us that when shotgun shooting (as opposed to rifle or pistol) we needed to keep BOTH eyes open.

Re: shotgun stance/cross post

By the way, if you're shooting right handed and using the left eye for the sights, how do you place your head on the rifle? Most right hand/right eye shooters simply butt their right cheek on the stock.

How in the hec do you do it if you [more]

Re: shotgun stance/cross post

If you're a right hand shooter, meaning using the right hand to puller trigger, and right shoulder to press the gun stock back on, typically, you should step your left foot a bit forward. The back foot allows you to keep balance during the recoil. [more]

That is, in fact, precisely what he's doing.

But the other bird is actually his reflection.

Re: Are we losing practical life-skills?

Jews make up a tiny bit of the US population (2-3%) but yet win like a 33% (or roughly 1/3rd) of the Nobel Prizes (often in subjects like economics or physics). This is an overwhelming number. Obviously, something is at play here.
