hoyt..I have a challenge for you

you claim you can spot carriers at 100 yards...and you claim all these ninja like powers to disarm people.

I have two tests.

FIRST test:spend an afternoon with me in Summerville in the historic district...we will eat at the Eclectric...do some shops...and while we do it I will have friends go by us within 75 yards carrying my ruger.If you can pick 8 out of my ten carriers you get my antique porsche...if not i get $1,000.These porsches go for 8k to 10k on ebay.

Second test isarm my friend John with a can of beans or a staff or a bicycle wheel..Again...Porsche vs $1,000

On edit:This isn't a joke.If you can do either test I will hand you the title and keys to my porsche.you claim you can do it...back it

It's time Hoyt puts his money where his mouth is, but I predict that he'll find a reason not to while at the same time ridiculing your bet.
I really hope he takes this bet.

Saying you can "spot" someone carrying anything less than a rifle at 100 yards, much less a concealed pistol, is like claiming you can pick the winning powerball numbers.

I teach CCW and I don't think I could pick people out at that distance unless they were carrying OWB full size handguns. You get a little Kahr or Ruger LCP and carry it IWB there's no way any one is going to spot that.

I will also need to incapacitate your weapons because I would not want to subject the city to armed tourists.

Staff will work fine for your buddy John.

Are you going to sort of "zap" them into a non-functional condition using only your mind?

empty chamber (cylinder for revolvers) with empty chamber flag, no magazines inserted. No ammo anywhere. Possibly a zip-tie locking up the action and passing through the barrel.

He will prolly eat one or two cans of beans the night before and use his emanations (which will sound more intelligent then his normal posts in this forum) against any CCL user.

And, I'll bet a big bunch of those will have a confederate flag either on their auto or prominently displayed at home.

Video from Summerville. Sorry, but I can't remove the racist comments on this youtube video, but I bet a lot of those fuckers with the confederate flags tote, legally or illegally.
