Bama,when I retired my duty weapon was a Sig in .40 S/W. Since it was less than two years old I had to pay full state purchase price so I could keep it. I am not a big fan of autoloaders, but it is probably the best shooting pistol  I have ever owned. You would not regret going to the .40 cal.

What is scary is that the vote was that close and four of the judges were that clueless as to what the Bill of Rights was about. The BoR wasn't put in place for militia rights but for individual rights. I don't take too much comfort in the outcome, especially with the outlook for who will be appointing judges in the next four years.

Good thread; right on the $. What frightens me is that the Supreme Court hsa become so political. To me, this decision proves it; splt along liberal/conservative lines.

I think it's been on a precipice sp? since the CW and well prior. In the last forty odd years we've been on the brink... yet somehow by the grace of god we persevere. I sometimes wonder what kind of world I've brought my kids into but in fairnes my grandparents probably thought the same thing.

Bama, my grandparents brought my parents into this world during the depression and WW2. I can very well see them wondering.

Well said, my grandmother and your grandmother would have been contemporaries. She remembered the Wright brothers and their crazy flying machine, along with man walking on the moon. What a generation, eh?

Pikers! My paternal grandfather was born in 1859. The grandmother in 1865. She passed on in 1933; he left us in 1949. Unfortunately, I was too young and too stupid to actually ask him some questions. Imagine the changes he went through. The steam tractor, Kitty Hawk, WWI and WWII. The Depression. Radio. A widowed daughter coming home with four children. Fortunately, he didn't live to see a grandson killed in Korea.

The stories are long and endless. Figure 1935. Father's widowed sister needs to be picked up in Minot, North Dakota. Take the Model A in the dead of winter, all the way up there, gather up her and her four children and baggage, and deliver her to her father's house. There were giants on the earth in those days. That was surely the greatest generation.

For many of you, that was your grandfather's time. It took a different kind of man and woman than we are used to to survive.

Worth thinking about.

Ole our paternal grandfathers were born the same year, 1859.  Sadly mine died in 1927 long before I was born.  My paternal grandmother was born in 1868 she died in around 1936.  My maternal grandfather was born in  1889 as was my grandmother.  He died of swine flu in 1919 .  My grandmother lost her husband her mother and her only son in an 18 month period back then.  She almost lost her two daughters too to dieases that now kids get vacine for .  Grandmother picked herself up got a job as a postmaster (yes master , she always said that is the title) then worked in a general store to take care of her family.  No complains out of her ever that I know of.  She married a man who was a widower .  His wife had been my grandmother's good friend.  They both lived into the 70's .  Imagine all the changes they saw.  They raised the two daughters to be good citizens, one a housewife and one a housewife and teacher. 

I agree they were strong people.  I respect them very much.  Admire what they did and who they were .  I also love them very much. 

Susan
