Ben G. replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"Why do I carry a gun? Because a cop is too heavy. Because I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.  Because the bad guys have them. Because I would not be able to live with myself if something happened to someone I love while I was…"

Ben G. replied to AZDuffman's discussion Is President Putin Manly?

Ben G. replied to AZDuffman's discussion Is President Putin Manly?

Ben G. replied to Will's discussion Yellow jackets in the basement
