I know this guy. My friend used to date his sister. He was always a bit off but never gave off the I'm going to kill you vibe. I only met him a handful of times. He'd been to my house a few and I'd been over there a couple times.

Really puts things into perspective.

Thanks. I'm always on here using my phone.

Well, at least he planned ahead.


And that scares me.

Here's my facebook status... Some think I'm crazy or paranoid for being armed 99% of the time. Some think since we live in a smaller town nothing can happen. Some think the police will be there to help them. In Bolivar Mo a guy planned to go on a rampage at Walmart. He chose here because he could resupply if he ran his guns empty after 400 rounds. My observations are its a under 12k population town, it's a random act meaning everybody is a target and he felt safe enough in his act that he planned a resupply. He did not fear the police or an armed populace. I don't carry because I'm crazy I carry because others are crazy. I carry because I feel the need to protect myself and loved ones if need be. It's evident criminals don't obey laws or fear the police. You should carry yourself to make them fear the populace.

QFT.

I live in a town with a population of less than 3K... Some people think I'm nuts / paranoid for daily carrying.

This certainly reaffirms my choice to carry EVERYWHERE... ALWAYS.

Been kinda rough these last couple weeks too...

Doctors have me on new medicine for my diabetes that always makes me feel like my guts are being ripped out from the inside.

I wake up every morning to get dressed and have been staring at my EDC gear going... "Man... I REALLY don't feel like carrying all that extra crap today."

Then I figure... Well... The one day I don't have it with me will certainly be the day I need it.

Eh well... Be safe out there guys. Lots of fruitcakes out and about these days.

Completely unrelated, sorry... you should ask your pharmacist about what your taking. Some diabetes medications, such as metformin, can cause really bad diarrhea. What some doctors don't tell patients is that they need to taper their dose up. It can take up to 2 months of slowly increasing the dose so your body can adjust to it. Don't know what you started on, but wouldn't hurt to give them a call and ask... Because no one likes diarrhea

Now back to the OP...

+1 on the metformin.. and a good endochronologist makes a huge difference.

Endochronologist? Do they use an Endochronometer?

Endocrinologist....... Dang!

Tough on the diabetes...
I agree with your stance on carrying though. I try not to stop on the way home from work if I can help it, but go back out later.
Can't carry on the premisis even at work. UGH.

Endo-chron-ologist - A doctor that tells you the best time to smoke your medicinal marajuana? Or the doctor you take your kid to when they swallow a Timex?

Try 2000 mg of metformin AND IBS!

You find out that IMODIUM is your best friend.
Link Posted: 11/16/2012 4:54:11 PM EST
LOL... Sorry to derail the thread so bad.

I was on Metformin about 2 years ago... And it did the same thing to me... Even after 2 months of trying to make it work.

Couldn't function with the problems it was causing... So I went hardcore on controlling my diet and that was enough to keep my blood sugars in check...

Now 2 years later things have gotten a bit worse and I'm back to needing the meds.

They put me on Glucatrol... And I honestly think it's WORSE than the Metformin was.

I called the Doc... He told me to stick it out till my next follow up.

Folks can't think you are crazy for carrying if they don't believe you are carrying.

So where does that fall on the media gun description/picture chart? AK47 or M16?
That's definitely a Glock.

I've received two calls for a ccw class today. Both cited this event as an eye opener for a small town.

That kid has been to my house too. Made the unfortunate choice of not knocking once.

And he was more than a little off Keith.

Why hasn't there been more media coverage of this? I saw a short story about it on the local news, and that was it.

As far as I'm concerned... Thats a good thing.

Already enough nut jobs in the news to give guns / gun owners a bad name.

It made CNN, msnbc, fox and I saw my old professor post a pic of it in a Turkish newspaper. It made news.

With luck this douche will follow the Aurora Shooter's lead and be more successful in his endevors in jail. Maybe they will forget to take away his shoelaces or something.

Attacking Wal-Mart in Bolivar in November he sure thought this through not like large percentage of the population would have a deer rifle aka sniper rifle in their truck.
