I learned it can be a good idea to stop and talk to the guy doing the mid week yard sale in the Food Lion parking lot. I noticed on the way to get my daughter that he had some camo. I stopped on the way back and bought a Naturalgear 4 in 1 insulated jacket and insulated bibs for $80. That's about $300 worth of gear. I'm trying them out in the morning.
Also got a little better with an adjustable groover, freehand groover, and awl on my leather holsters.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

I learned today that helping young ladies out with flat tires earns you phone numbers. Such a concept, I know :D.
I've probably driven past 7 or 8 lasses before, but I stopped for this one today.
I shall do it more often. /oaf.
If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

I learned that the mysterious "Sea People" wrecked Egypt's society, culture and economy in approximately 1200 BC by launching boat raids and marauding the coast. As much as I love history, I had never heard of them before.

Thanks to "Suntzu", I learned that it is legal to can carry in a Texas church if there are no 30.06 signs posted which would prohibit carrying a concealed handgun.

I learned that my wife is glad she doesn't have that 15 year old "prepper" from the latest episode of Doomsday Preppers in her classroom...

I learned that Jeff Cooper's Commentaries are still quite informative and entertaining, even being nearly 20 years old.
Jeff Cooper's Commentaries
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

One other related matter. If the tape measure happens to get dropped and bends that hook in a bit, the tape measure will be off (reads longer) on outside measurements, but will still work okay on inside measurements. Not a big deal if you're rough framing something, but becomes quickly aggravating on cabinetry. Use a framing square to check that hook for accuracy.

Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
