In Kalifornya, no less (Judging by your listed state)! Look around - maybe there's a "Black Gun Blvd" nearby. [:D]

When we went out to ETH's place there was a road on the way called Rifle Range Road. I was going to get a oicture but didn't.

One of the county roads east of Denver that intersects I-70 is "Gun Club Road." Unfortunatly, suburbia is creeping in and it won't be long, if it's not already too late, and the gun club will be gone. [:(] The town I live in uses a Winchester '94 as it's symbol. We have "Remington Square," "Gunbarrel Square" and once had a "Winchester Hotel" and a host of other gun related names.

With the number of hunters that come in every fall I wondered if anyone would recognize the names. [:D] Although I really didn't expect you to catch it Kar98. Shoulda' known, I guess.

How about [b]'Gun Barrel City, Texas'?[/b] Now [u]that's[/u] a place I could get real used to! [url]http://www.texasescapes.com/EastTexasTowns/GunBarrelCityTexas/GunBarrelCityTx.htm[/url] Town slogan? 'We Shoot Straight With You!' I kid you not! [:D] Eric The(WellTraveled)Hun[>]:)]

Do they take escapees' from NY? Gun Barrel City, despite the frontier-sounding name, has only been around since the 1960s when the Cedar Creek Reservoir was built. The population was only 60 in 1970, and the people voted on incorporation so that the town could [b]sell beer.[/b] "Fishing is not mandatory, but it's more of a lifestyle than a recreation in Gun Barrel City. Remember their motto is "We shoot straight WITH you." Not "We shoot straight AT you." (Houston's unofficial motto).

The fact that [b]Gun Barrel City, Texas[/b] has only been around since the 1960s should tell you something about the mindset of most Texans! We love weapons! All weapons! Any weapon! Eric The(GunLoving)Hun[>]:)]

its a PVT (private) road so i guess you can name it whatever you want. even in liberal Kalifornia, there are pockets of conservatism.

Occasionally in the PRK you see something that gives you a bit of hope...guy at a light in front of me yesterday in a big Dodge 4-by had a PRK personalized plate...MMMDEER. A week ago I finally got my plates...308N223. Was sitting at a light when I heard the guy in back of me beep his horn. Turned out to be CHP and I got a big thumbs up. -hanko

Shoot, are you kidding? Most of the counties in Calirfornia are genuinely conservative, it's the left coast cities that tilt California into the liberal camp. Just look at the Bush/Gore map of the 2000 Election: [img]http://www.worldnetdaily.com/images/20001114_xcbtl_electionrtrn.jpg[/img] California looks pretty [b]Bush[/b] to me! If they could just get rid of that Left Coast...hmmmm... Eric The(I'mThinking,I'mThinking)Hun[>]:)]

New Mexico? All the homosexuals from my office have moved there. Five in all. They say the climate (figuratively) is receptive. They also say that many of their homosexual friends are moving there as well. I'm here in the bay area so guess what political bent they have? I have no doubt that this is one of the factors for the blue swatches in NM. I want to know WTF about the blue in Texas? Breaking my heart.

Check the map close and you will find the border towns. Illegal immigration, most likely [:(!] ...fullclip
