Boring day on the lot, so I thought I'd share some local news. I live on the border of Gilbert/Mesa/Chandler in the Phoenix Metro area. Within about 5 miles from my house, there have been 5 people shot in 3 separate incidences and one stabbing/decapitation within the past 24 hours. A couple of the stories are in links below. I usually don't post stuff like this because it happens so regularly, but decapitation? Phoenix is turning into Juarez. These all occurred in a small corner of the East Phoenix valley. There are similar situations happening valley wide everyday.

This is quite a deal guys.. its real UNDER reported in the papers, but the city has the highest kidnap rate by like 200% in the Nation.. All about either drugs are human traffic.. We heard a few months back that the city was averaging over one kidnaping a day.. As these are all illegal to start with, a lot of them don't even get reported.. So its even worse, and of course since they are illegal the police don't want those "numbers" recorded on the unsolved crime records so a lot of it is kept under the radar...

Reap, and those not involved with the problem should be safe, but when your talking that sorta violence.. Yep id keep something in condition 1..

That is why I live outside of Phoenix... I can at least see the bastards coming and have the room to fight!

Things have as long as I remember been out of control over here... Phoenix gets worse and worse partially if not greatly due to lack of border security and English not even being the language in front of many stores on the signs...

I have been to other countries and lived in 2 other countries and I make every attempt at being respectful and trying to know the language of where I am... It tells a lot about a group of people that don't even respect people enough to learn to communicate in their language...

I imported my wife, she is still not a citizen but she speaks english just fine...

When they are up against this kind of crime it makes their job super hard.

Agree with you 100% Reaper. We are over in Glendale, Just east of Luke AFB on Northern.
It's just flat nasty. Hell, the neighborhood I grew up in over in central Phx, I wont even go through now. Took my wife to show her when I first moved back here, & I wasted no time getting the hell out of there.

Mine is a Monson also. I got the heavy vent rib pistol pac in 1980.
Sweet shooting gun.

I agree with you Vaq, they are sweet. I was never lucky enough to have a pac & with the prices today I doubt I ever will. That's OK, the one I have is still as tight as can be & the trigger both double & single are still about the best in the business. This is the other one that my wife claims as hers. LOL

CZ has bought all of the holdings of Dan Wesson arms. I hear they are offering factory support, repairs, and extra barrels and shrouds.

Reaper308

Reaper308, the way I look @ illeagles and gangbangers is. As long as they kidnap each other and kill each other, pillage, each other. It's ok. How can the Law say it was a murder, or against the law, when gang bangers are doing this to themselves?? I say it's not murder, or unlawful. Now if a gangbanger kills an ordenary citizen, that is murder!! But when a gang member killes a gang member, it's should be called "cleaning up after yourself!! How can statistics be efected???
The 6:00 news, should be__________Tonight, the gangs on the east side of town, has
cleansed the streets of 4 more gang members!! This is the only the 10 of Feb. and we are seeing the streets of Phonex have claimed 32 gang Bangers sience New Years!! Go Gang Bangers!!! Now, over to you Molly.
Thanks Dick, what an enerjetic mob we have out there!! Our channel 6 crew has a contest going, the question is, how many Bangers are gonna be elimanated off the streets by New Years, midnight??? Who ever come the closest wins. And who ever guess correctly, goes on a BUST with Sherrif Joe!! The winner will recive, two Colt 45's with pearl handles, but waite there's more, 5000 rounds of 45 hollow pt Ammo!!! And a trip for 2 paid for by money Sherrif Joe gets by radeing the Bangers of cash, and sending our lucky winners to FrontSite!!!!!!!!!!! Where you can learn how to cap the Bastards between the eyes!!! YA!! Dream on Lyle!

Over to you Molly.. Don't know about the rest of you guys, but i sorta have the feeling that Lyles would have you rolling on the floor laughing if you had a beer with him,

Yep, I got a feeling your right Greg. I thought he was gonna blow a gasket over Chicken Dick LOL.

Hey Adam,
My wife used to get them BAD!!! Tried everything, finally got hooked up with a Migraine specialist Neurologist & he put her on some special vitamins, proven to help & something called Imitrex ( Sumatryptan) So far, works great she is a million times better. The stuff is not cheap but it works. Mostly all she takes now are the vitamins, once in a great while she feels a bad one coming on & she takes the other stuff & lay's down for an hour & it"s over.
The vitamins are called MigreLife @ www.migrelife.com they have done wonders for her.
Just a thought, Shooting was great, as it always is> Burnt 200 45 auto 100 357 through my little 2 1/4". Shoulder got a little tired but all in all not to bad. Hope you get to feeling better,
