Welcome. But, x-nay on the alifornia-k!!! Do not tell people here that you are from Kali. Especially so-kali. Many here have an attitude with kalifornians moving over to AZ. Many like to blame all of Arizona's woe's on us. The last bashing I heard was the lack of rain this season. We got the blame for that one too. I moved here 6 months ago from San Diego. Best move I ever made. I couldn't afford to live in Kali anymore and I hated the politcal atmosphere there. When people ask where your from, tell them your from Texas and they'll welcome you with open arms.

Yes, open carry is legal.

But, by doing so, you're gonna ruin it for the rest of us.

Well, that's what some folks will tell ya.

Long story...search the Az section for the thread on AMC theater and you'll get the gist of it. :)

My opinion:

Carry Open, Carry often. :)

Then they need to produce ears from two different liberals that they have removed from Arizona Territory.

Arizona Gun Owner's Guide

Edit to add:



Don't shoot at saguaros. They retaliate.


The Saguaro Strikes Back!




In 1982, roommates David Grundman and James Joseph Suchochi decided pack up the guns and go wandering in the desert two miles north of Arizona 74, just west of Lake Pleasant. One or both of them was struck with the brilliant notion of taking pot shots at saguaro they found growing there. Maybe it was the Devil in them. Maybe it had to do with the eerily manlike shapes these monstrous plants can grow into.

Grundman shot a small saguaro in the trunk so many times that it thudded to the ground. "The first one was easy!" he cried, according to Suchochi. He next chose a specimen which stood 26 feet high and was estimated to be a hundred years old. Before the ringing in his ears had stopped, a four-foot spiny arm, severed by the blast, fell on Grundman, crushing him.

Grundman's demise is chronicled in "Saguaro," a song by the Texas rock band, the Austin Lounge Lizards.

There are other stories in urban lore about Nature's children taking revenge on their human tormentors (the dynamite dog and Gucci kangaroo, for instance), but this is the only one where a plant strikes back. Then again, the saguaro is one very special plant.

Saguaros are tall cactuses that can reach heights of 60 feet and grow only in the Sonoran Desert in the southwestern United States. For the first 75 years of their lives, they have only huge central trunks; their distinctive outstretched and upwards-bent arms develop later, if at all. Their usual lifespan is 150 to 200 years, though some have lived to be 300.

Oh, one other fact about saguaros; they can weigh up to 8 tons. As Grundman found out.

That ain't no lie!



This photo, which is a popular postcard here in Arizona, was taken about 2 miles from where I live. All you East Mesa Mongrels know where it is. http://www.inet-link.com/downloads/cactusfell.jpg
