Luggage Still Being Sweated...

...although United has already given me a $150 certificate to make me feel better. My underwear is still MIA, despite protestations that it is no longer in custody. No matter what they tell me, I believe that my underwear wouldn't talk, no matter what the dirty screws threw at 'em! 

Dare to struggle; dare to win!

Meanwhile, I've been way off base on the best protection against mountain lions...this from Cody, Wyoming, no doubt near the home of Jim Zumbo: 
CODY, Wyoming — A Colorado man used a chain saw to fight off a mountain lion that attacked him during a camping trip with his wife and two toddlers in northwestern Wyoming.

The adult male lion, described as emaciated and showing other signs of starvation, was later killed by wildlife officials after it attacked a dog brought in to track it.

Dustin Britton, a 32-year-old mechanic and ex-Marine from Windsor, Colo., said he was alone cutting firewood about 100 feet from his campsite in the Shoshone National Forest when he saw the 100-pound lion staring at him from some bushes.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Britton said he raised his 18-inch chain saw and met the lion head-on as it pounced — a collision he described as feeling like a grown man running directly into him.
Okay...speak softly but carry a chainsaw. And speaking of chainsaws, I'm all torqued up on the DS Arms itty bitty FAL blaster;

I might have to pony up the bucks and the $200 tax stamp to have one of these little monsters. I gotta tell you it got away from me on full auto, with me hanging on for dear life. Pop an Advanced Armament suppressor like the Cyclone on this beast and it'd be the ne plus ultra of 7.62 mini-rifles. It'd go well with my Serbu Super Shorty.

That DSA FAL should have a HUGE muzzle flash. Get the tax stamp, make it full auto (and get another stamp), and take it to the night shoot at Knob Creek!

I received this same comment when I mentioned I was going to get the LWRC SABR (now called the REPR [rapid engagement precision rifle]) with the 12" barrel

How soon can we expect an "auto-start" chainsaw that lites off as it is drawn from a holster? Will there be minimum length regulations?
I'm thinking that a twin engine, twin chain unit would be just the ticket for really dangerous game.

Could the muzzle flash count as "green" lighting?

Sure it'd be spendy, but if it saves one tree...

I call shenanigans on the story. There's no such thing as an ex-Marine.

Cut a 7.62x51 down that short and you basically end up with the ballistics of a 7.62x39...but more annoying.

Different strokes for different folks I guess...

I don't get it either, Jason.

Of course, it would be boring if logic dictated all of our gun-buying decisions.

True, except if you cut down a 7.62x39 that short, you get the ballistics of a...um...well, something less than a 7.62 Commie
