posting this again for discussion about air rifles

for those who havent followed the advances in breakbarrel air rifle tech,there are some air rifles(that's not even the right term anymore)that are coming close to deer rifle ability.

At what point do we start regulating air rifles like other guns?I can go to any air rifle manufacturer website and order a breakbarrel that at this point rivals many rifles with no questions asked.

I LOVE my breakbarrels and dont want them stopped but people think these things are like dads old red rider bb gun and buy them for the kids and nothing is further from the truth.

I'm looking at selling two of my old air rifles to buy a gamo .25 that shoots at 2,000 fps.

Do we really need kids walking around with a pellet gun that is damn near is as powerful as a .25-06?

Yes this has been my pet worry,but dayum,,these things are getting insanely powerful with the new hydraulic systems and there are no controls on them.

the wife finally gets 401(k)

I've always kept all the records on the 401(k) and my profit sharing accounts and the wife had a vague idea that it was some kind of savings account.

I showed her my last statement

Not going to mention numbers...all I will say is she cried...she had no idea

DU FF playoffs week one

It's playoff time

It's been a tough but competitive and fun year.To explain how tough it has been, our defending champion rejected...who had a good team...didnt make the playoffs.it's been a hell of a year and there again is no clear frontrunner going into the


Division one leader and first round bystander AZ Outlaw must be pleased watching the matchup for his semi opponent.
This dubious honor will go to either our elderly one,Older and More in the Way, or Parcells Disciples.
Both of these teams have been scoring machines all year but surprisingly neither seems to be taking the bull by the horns in a surprising two team struggle.The elderly one seems to have it in hand but neither had a week to write home about.
AZ must be licking his chops after this but he better not take the Old One lightly.He hasn't struggled two weeks in a row all year.Older has stormed the league to the top in overall points is thin on the bench but has a beast of a starting lineup and will be a force next week.

Division Two winner War Pigs got a well earned week off waiting to see who he faces between SwamplizardBob and Touchdown There.
The lizard has this one and will get a rematch against one of his toughest tests all year but may have issues with his starting QB,RG3,on top of still waiting on MJD,vs a relatively healthy WAR PIG team.

Division Two will be a shootout next week.

It has been a fun and wild season.....gooooooood luck to the final four.LETS ROCK!!
