Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

That is incredible boon. I can't find a price on it? Damn I wish we had something like that back in my days in the military. We had the Gen. 1 pure junk.

What's that old saying "if you have to ask, You can't afford it" comes to mind.

Dude I once worked with turned out to be living in my neighborhood. We get to talking & he ask what I'd been up to. I telling buying machine guns, suppressors, SBS & SBR's. Told him I been hunting in Africa a bunch.

He basically calls me a liar because he makes more then I ever did. So he stops over the house which has african mounts all over, zebra rug & still thinks I'm lying. So I break out the photos & passport and he still does not believe it Next I open the safe & start showing him tax stamps, still calling me a liar.

What really got me shaking my head was when he asked me what my rent was? I told him it's my house & It's paid for. The look on his face was priceless.

Finally I tell him straight up Steve you get off work & you buy 2 tall boys. When they are gone you go buy 2 more and you do that until you go to bed. And it aint like your buying suitcases of beer on sale @ the grocery store or liquor store, you always hit the convenience stores. And you been doing this 30 fucking years. I on the other hand seldom drink so if you think about how much you over spent on beer alone over 30 year & added it up!

Then I remind him of being married having a kid & getting divorced so he could pay child support for 18 years.

Love the night cam. Thanks for posting. I will sent it to my sons who hunt and fish.

Yup. It is not how much you make but how much you save. My first house was $6500 and I fixed it up and bought a better one and worked my way up. I have a modest home but I have a farm and farm house and a little 2 bedroom in a tri plex in Australia. I paid cash for my house 39 years ago. I have always driven top end used cars and flipped cars. I worked hard and had 4 children and my wife has 3. I have no bills and pay the credit cards off every month. It is amazing how well you can live when you don't waste money. I am sure your friend was clueless. You should have told him you had a rich uncle or were a pimp. LOL

You can make your own Coors Lite by pouring a Budweiser in to a gallon of water.
