I, too, made that caliber decision several years ago and the 9mm won based on a broad range of criteria for my family. Of course, your mileage may vary. But for me, the wife and kids (still have 5 at home) a cartridge that worked for young to old, was plenty available and didn't break the bank to train regularly with, the 9 just made sense. So for now, we streamlined our home cartridges down to 3 - .22lr, 9mm & 5.56. I believe that in a WORL/SHTF situation, these are likely to be the most available and in common use. I'll add one more caliber when I get me a M1A Scout Squad. I have 2 in college now and that one's just a luxury that'll need to wait.

So sorry for your sudden loss. Like many here, he seemed like one of our friends and we all welcomed him into our homes. He was one of us. His love for his family, country & fellow man was easily apparent. It's a loss for us all. America was a better place with him in it.

Godspeed, Barry.

As an aviator, I think we're naturally attracted to motorcycling, although I was on 2 wheels as a 10 year old, about 9 years before getting on wings. But it does seem the pilot-to-motorcycle ratio exceeds the GenPop.

Nothing like canyon rides. I was spoiled in SoCal, riding Ortega occasionally & Angeles Crest daily to work, for a number of years. THAT made going to work & back pure joy. Happy employee, happy husband & Dad.

Thanks for the vid, Nutn. Great mid-day escape. A welcome change!

Learn something new everyday. Good to know in pinch.

BTW, I got one of those Olights for my wife last year. She loves it. Terrific little torch with great features.

HPD doesn't enjoy a stellar reputation among the city's residents. I personally know of no one that holds this police department in high regard, which stands in stark contrast to Houston Fire, which the citizenry love and respect. HFD has a dedicated group of men & women second to none. This is a new low, even for HPD. At the Megabus bus station at Pierce & Travis, it would appear Houston Police Parking Enforcement takes down license plates when dropping passengers off and then sends a $70 ticket in the mail. In October my wife dropped off our daughter and 3 weeks later a ticket arrived in the mail. When she called, she was told there was a note that she had been warned multiple times and refused to move, which was nonsense, a straight-up lie, a complete fabrication. She would never argue with law enforcement. Ever. It's not in her character. Who argues with a cop or meter maid REFUSING to move, daring to be written a ticket or towed? Who does that? NO ONE DOES THAT. What they do, is they beg to be given an opportunity TO MOVE to avoid getting a ticket. It's not even an effective lie. It's an exceedingly weak, stupid one. This is outrageous, but not surprising. Like most Houstonians, my opinion of HPD is not a good one, but, as an organization, it's a reputation they most certainly have built and earned. Mistreating the very people that provide their paychecks by lying about a citizens' character is despicable. But using a bus terminal parking lot as a city revenue stream, as people drop off passengers is, as I said, a new low. Is there no level to the depths this city will go to extract money from it's citizens? We've established they have no decency - have they also no shame?

Our daughter uses Megabus as an affordable alternative back to college in north Texas when seats are unavailable on Southwest. She generally enjoys her trips on MB, apart from the usual late departures.

Need an FFL on Houston's SE side, Pasadena or Clear Lake? Gary Garza's your guy. Anyone can pick up and deliver firearms and complete paperwork. What if there's a hiccup in the process? That's where there's a difference. Gary will stay in communication to make sure everything gets handled and squared away. Competitive pricing ($25 as of Aug 2013) and great customer service. Can't ask for more than that.

Took 4 of the kids for a morning at the range which was going great until the sky exploded, releasing a biblical proportioned volume of rain. Haley took care of us all, escorting us back to the office with her umbrella & without prompting provided us with a rain check. The atmosphere was great, as a few other shooters filled the office to escape the deluge and engage in conversation enthusiasts engage in. Being a weekday morning, we had the range nearly to ourselves but weekends are, so I've heard, extremely busy. Pricing was fair and the facilities adequate. Home construction has encroached on the east side, so I'm not certain how much longer they'll be able to remain open. Overall, a solid facility. It's a bit of a drive for me but worth it if I'm made to feel welcome, so they've earned my business. Shout out to Haley the range master, great job and we'll see you again.

First was introduced to Bill Abshagen and his little steakhouse back in 1977 by a mutual friend and have been returning ever since. Today, The Ore House nearly identifies Durango as much as the Narrow Gauge. Steaks are never a disappointment and will always leave you with a "that was the best damn steak" feeling. But make sure to leave room for the Blueberry Cheesecake. You won't find any better, anywhere. A visit to Durango isn't complete without steaks at The Ore House. You don't last 40+ years in the restaurant business unless you're doing something very right. Great atmosphere and terrific food. Bill continues to do it all, very right!

Hospitality runs hot and cold. The older gals probably shouldn't be in customer contact positions. The younger ones, like the fella that just helped me, he was all smiles and very friendly. The drive thru must be experienced to understand just how slow slow can be. Pulling into the drive thru, I waited only a few moments, 3-4 minutes tops. After a friendly greeting, asking my name and telling me my Rx total, I handed him my card, then waited 19 minutes. I could see thru the glass he was also helping another customer inside. But 19 minutes, for one prescription they called to advise was ready? It's asking an awful lot of your customers to do that to them without even offering an apology for making them wait so long. Today wasn't a one-off. Every trip to this drive-up window has been similar. I just timed it this time. If this location wasn't so close to home, I'd have probably changed. But I think my patience with this store has worn out. They've lost me as a customer.

This is a must-stop for the committed jerkey-lover. Any type & flavor to suit anyone's taste. Oh, and they have fuel. :-)
