    "Hey, your hammer's cocked back."

    "Hey, your hammer's cocked back." I got this comment once before when carrying one of my 1911s. The person I dealt with walked humbly away with knowledge, after a short conversation I had with them. This time my wife received the comment: We were at the Dairy Queen in Hartwell, GA with our...

    ATL Airport, Open Carry, Non-issue

    I had to drop a friend off at the Atlanta Airport today. He's in the Navy and was visiting on leave. The drive from Simpsonville, SC to the Atlanta Airport sucks when you know you've had no sleep the night before and you're going to work a 12 hour shift later on the same day. Anyway, we made it...

    A while ago, I created a pamphlet for spreading the word about how South Carolina can get permitless carry and restaurant carry, but never had a chance to share it with anyone. In parts of the pamphlet there are comparisons between South Carolina's gun laws and other states' gun laws. I just...

    Man charged with going armed to the terror of the public

    This is horrible reporting. I can't tell by the context of the article if one of the handguns was concealed and the other was carried openly or not. I hope this wasn't anyone on here. http://www2.statesville.com/news/2012/may/07/armed-man-arrested-walmart-parking-lot-ar-2253619/

    Freedom Watch Canceled by Fox

    Freedom Watch was the only reason I watched Fox Business. I hope the Judge gets on with another network. He was a strong supporter in the right to bear arms, WITHOUT EXCEPTIONS, unlike some of the other Fox commentators. http://reason.com/blog/2012/02/09/fox-business-networks-cancels-judge-andr

    Open Carry in SC - Local Ordinances Criminalize It

    When a discussion of H.3292 is started, there is always a person that asks if the bill will legalize open carry in SC. From my research, the answer is yes, but not in all cities or counties. We have all seen where H.3292 does not restrict carrying a firearm openly if the firearm is not being...

    Cop and wife "dying" from a marijuana brownie overdose

    I never touched "the stuff", and neither has my wife. I've heard it's best to be with someone who is "experienced" for your first time. I imagine if my wife and I did "the stuff" for our first time, together, we would end up like this cop and his wife, LOL...

    Heavy drinking linked to owning firearms?

    Sorry if someone already posted this, but this is ridiculous: "Gun owners who carry concealed weapons or have confronted another person with a gun are more than twice as likely to drink heavily as people who do not own guns, according to a study by UC Davis researchers. Binge drinking, chronic...
