Cats & Dogs

Me, from discussion elsewhere on the topic of cats & dogs: "I mean, I like dogs and all, but that's a lot of commitment. At that point you're basically only 'saving for college' away from having kids." — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) February 12, 2019 [Author: Tam]

Spoiler Alert: It's the latter...

It amazes me how many people responded to my @ShootingIllustr column on WMLs with "Well, they don't substitute for a handheld!" or "Only with training in proper use!"It's like I wrote the 4th & 5th paragraphs in vain. Or maybe they didn't actually read it. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) February 11, 2019 [Author: Tam]

#PopMorePopcorn

So, basically #GovNortham is retreating to the classic "These aren't my pants" defense so familiar to street cops.https://t.co/PuaU9T3MMB — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) February 2, 2019 [Author: Tam]

Still chuckling...

The best #GovNortham joke so far has been whichever pundit called him "Governor Partial Birth of a Nation". I'm just mad I didn't come up with that one. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) February 2, 2019 [Author: Tam]

Winter is Coming

Yesterday morning, the news was predicting 2-4" of snow. Last night they were saying 3-5". This morning it's 4-7". I do not like how this curve is trending. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) January 11, 2019 We haven't really had much in the way of winter weather so far this season (over 9" short on seasonal snow totals), so Ma Nature looks like she's fixin' to make up for that.The only upside to getting over five inches of snowfall at once is that it triggers the city into calling out the private cont...

"$5 says that's not an AOW..."

From elsewhere...

Every law you pass to make it easier to get the bad guys ends up used against the good guys. Every one: RICO, PATRIOT Act, all of them. If you hand the government a hammer, it's only a matter of time before they stop pounding nails & turn around and crack you in the head with it. — Tamara K.

Metastasized...

Almost all government departments, bureaus, and programs start out well. For instance, once upon a time, the House of Representatives was 59 dedicated patriots who had never met a career politician. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) December 10, 2018 [Author: Tam]

Cutting Remark...

Other than the original dovetail, there are four rear sight cuts you can do to your 1911-pattern pistol: Novak, Heinie, Bomar, and Wrong. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) November 30, 2018 ...and once you go Bomar, you'll never go back. Because you can't. At least, not without welding up and re-cutting stuff. [Author: Tam]

Overheard in the Kitchen...

RX: "You walked to lunch? It was 20° out today!"Me: "I'll have you know it was a balmy 26 when I walked to lunch."RX: "It's f$ck me 27 out there right now!"It took a second, and then I didn't stop laughing for five minutes. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) November 29, 2018 [Author: Tam]

Gambler's Odds

Harsh Truth: The "Lifetime Warranty" offered by manufacturers of low-budget guns is predicated on the vast majority of people buying $150-$400 guns not ever spending the $150-$400 on the ammunition it would take to wreck them. — Tamara K. (@TamSlick) November 23, 2018 [Author: Tam]

Happy Domestic Disturbance Day!

Politics at the Thanksgiving dinner table should get you held face-down in the gravy boat until the bubbles stop. https://t.co/epPl5yaoBJ — Tamara K.

Civics Fail

Duh.That's to ensure that Los Angeles County doesn't get to dictate laws to those 43 states. If you like LA County laws, move there and legislate 'til your heart's content. https://t.co/BjHR7Ruw4G — Tamara K.
