    Threads You started and wished you hadn't

    I just saw a posting that sort of apologized for a thread he/she started. I think/believe we ALL have been there. Fess up what was yours?

    Mine was my first just after joining. Asked about using reloads for my defense gun. WOW live and learn LOL


    YOUR TURN:
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Your best (worst) does not have to turn nasty. just maybe something you were thinking when you really weren't thinking after all.

    LOL. I remember once questioning the wisdom of WML's.

    I got stomped into the ground on that one.

    Don't mess with people's gadgets.

    I haven't started any threads since I've joined, but I have been thinking about doing a review of my Comp-Tac Infidel holster. Maybe sometime this week.

    Threads I have already learned not to start are caliber wars and ones that are political in nature.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    WML's? What a WML?...mine was 1911's are like redheads...yeah I don't care for em too much but I stirred up a hornets nest on that one. It was also right after I joined I should have had a bit better manners than stirring the pot as my first impression. I do still like to "stimulate a good debate" though!

    Valid question. Probably the most recognized definition is Wireless Markup Language. However in this context, I was using the acronym to refer to Weapon Mounted Light.

    Won't make that mistake again.
