AK-47 type rifle used to foil Texas robbery.

Apparently, when a Texas Jewelry store was held up, the store staff opened fire on the robbers. One of the store staff utilizing an AK-Type rifle*:

*Most likely of the Semi-Automatic variety.

t-star,

Generally speaking, Texas is a BAD place to pull a robbery, as a large percentage of our folks are "armed to the teeth" & know how to use their firearms.


yours, sw

GunGeek,

EXACTAMUNDO.

Here in Bexar County, a homeowner or businessperson defends their premises with a firearm on the average of once per day.

Over HALF of those defense incidents are with the homeowner/businessperson using a SHOTGUN.

FUNNY THING though, we never seem to see those figures in the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS or on radio/TV.

yours, sw

God Bless Texas.

Now I just need to convince the rels that it's a place where the quality of life and cost of living savings of moving there are more than worth the costs of being shipped back here to Mossback Hell for burial... and convince my gal it's a better place to spend winters than playing Nanook of the Fricking Frozen North. lol

Diamondback,

FYI, "Winter in South Texas" is defined as: The 3 weeks each year when the Canadian lovelies put a cover-up on over their bikinis.

If "Minnesota skinny" is 20 lbs overweight, what's the translation for "Canadian lovely"?

William R Moore,

36/24/36 is about typical. - Fwiw, South TX beaches get some HOT Canadian females in the "Wintertime". = FACT.

Don't want to even think about it... probably Five-by-Five.

Guess I better not invite C. to join us here... while she's fighting with a little more than she likes to carry, she's far and away the taller and trimmer of the two of us. (Trim enough that you could probably fit my ribcage around her, and I wear a size 46 suit jacket--she's about a 40-30-40, but she's also 5'10" without heels.)

Top, if you were my age that would've gotten you a Gibbs-slap.

FWIW, the cost of shipping remains is quite reasonable....or at least it used to be. Back in the late 1990s it cost me about $150 to return Mom to the North.

While Tops photo is probably typical, there have to be exceptions. On the other hand, there are advantages if you happen to be in the area. I spent about 3 months in St Paul and, being delicate, many of the guys appeared to believe in growing to "full market weight" as judged by Hormel (big employer in the area). Going into the bars, some of the local gals would look, say "OMG, that guy can see his feet without looking in a mirror, he's MINE!" Getting pick of the litter was a really neat experience for me.

Be nice, I resemble that remark... not by choice but by genetics. (Short stature, off-chart-oversized frame even before you put soft tissue on the bones, prone-to-winter-insulation genetic stock and a weird metabolism that combined will let me go no lighter than 160 and no heavier than 220, with up till recently "normal" being 180 summer low/200 winter high first half of my adult life to date, 190/210 in between and now 200/220 as I approach middle age. Remember the squeal-like-a-pig fat dude the Spitter ate in Jurassic Park? On the same height dial the frame up about three sizes, put on a little muscle and hack out enough fat to construct an entire petite adult woman from the surplus biomass, and I'm about what you'd have left.)

Yeah, but at my age I'd be the one slapping Gibbs. Oh, and Gibbs was way too easy on DiNozzo.

Yeah, but to Gibbs his team are surrogate children, so it's somewhat excusable. I'd have probably used that hunk of armor-plate that the docs call my frontal cranial-vault for an attitude-adjustment-by-headbutt or two myself... O.O
