Monday Blaahs

I got nothing tonite. I can't even gin up the enthusiasm to write about this 92 year old man who ran off a bunch of thieves with a gun. He did good, but old men should be dangerous.
“He started climbing over the gate, and I told him not to climb over. He climbed over anyway, so I pulled a gun on him,” West said.
The Sheriff says that he's going to form a task force to look into all the rural burglaries. I thought that was what the detectives are paid to do.

Around here, if an old man with a gun tells you to not climb over a gate, you'd be well advised to keep your butt on the other side.

..."but old men should be dangerous.

Understatement of the year.

Another good one is: "Boy, don't tell yo' Grandpa how to suck eggs...."

Does Louisiana have the similar CHL restrictions as Texas? If you qualify with a revolver that is the only handgun you can carry. If you qualify with a semi-auto you can carry it and/or a revolver. Might suggest that to your lady just in case she might change her type of carry.

Anon - No, Louisiana doesn't have those restrictions. In the Gret Stet of Louisiana, the CCW course is more about basic safety, the law, and basic gun handling skills. They don't care what you qualify with, nor what you carry. I've talked semi-auto guns with my wife, but she's a firm revolver shooter. She owns her own revolver (a pristine Model 28) and a shotgun. She'll stick with the revolvers.
