    There is some great hunting up north.
    Interesting factoid for all y'all. It's from Wikipedia, the most trusted source for information in this galaxy.

    Top five states for % of people owning guns:
    1) Wyoming at 59.7%
    2) Alaska at 57.8%
    3) Montana at 57.7%
    4) South Dakota at 56.6%
    5) West Virginia at 55.4%

    Mississippi is #6 at 55.3%. If you go by gun sales (background checks) it's a little different, but the top 10 is still dominated by non-south states. Here's the opinion piece: I've lived in 7 different states across the US including very rural Ohio (almost like the south), rural NY and Maine, and what I've learned is there are plenty of gun-crazy rednecks everywhere. No area of the country is any nuttier than another area. It comes down to man power and there are more non-south states than southern states.

    Awesome discussion about nothing even close to surfing. I agree with PJB...the fact that this thread started as a gripe about flat conditions and went in this direction is fantastic and a testament to how bored we are without waves to ride. Not a lot to talk about so why not discuss the civil war??

    PS - if it's cool with everyone I'd like to take credit for the civil war segment...it was my post at the top of pg. 2 that ignited a flame deep within Mr. Carter. I'm happy to help with any boredom remedies.

    This mess in afganistan should be over IN A WEEK ...enough said
    that sounds about right, damn redneck cant even keep Iraq and Afghanistan straight. Its gonna be a long pickup ride through Iran, India and over the Himalaya for the good ole boys to even get to Afghan territory. Thats just how we got into this mess in the first place. Dubbya gave up coke and booze, found God and the defense lobby and invaded Iraq instead of bombing al qaeda in Afghanistan. and god knows what the hell obama is doing.

    bush was stupid but at least its an ethos

    how about we take blaster's rednecks and PBJ's gang bangers and ship em all over to iraq, afghanistan, etc. The locals will tear them apart but if we send enough it should end up with a stalemate that kills most everyone involved on both sides, gets rid of a lot of guns, reduces our population, raises the average iq, education and other positive measures of the US, helping our competitive standing vis a vis the rest of the developed and developing world. the only thing that doesnt help out is the wave situation

    So basically you're saying we need to reinstate the draft.

    Tru Dat! My son is a special forces medic (18 Delta) In the 7th group. (Senoritas and Margaritas) He's deployed in Afghanistan at this time though... When they do Robin Sage and defend "Pineland" they do it in my landlocked backyard. I have "guerrilla" (Pronounced G-rilla down here) friends. I'd like to be involved in that someday. Put that on my odd bucket list.

    The south already constitutes a large segment of our military.

    I think it's great that the south has this consensus that the rest of the country/world thinks they are tough as nails, crazy, ironmen.

    Unfortunately, nobody outside the south thinks this way. Nobody is in awe of the south. Nobody is afraid of the south. I like the south. Of course I'm going to poke fun but that's just human nature. We all rib those who are a bit different.

    Marksmanship don't matter squat in war time scenarios besides snipers. So southern gun expertise wouldn't really matter much. People indiscriminately shoot in military battles.....just like the guys in Philly and Bridgeport

    Good Lord look at our military might and technology..........and we haven't won a war since World War II. You can't win a war by selectively invading a country. Invade it or don't. You can't worry aboot collateral damage. Stop making targets out of our boys, and invade the damn country. No remorse and no selective targets. Anyone wearing a bathrobe is fair game. Women, you bes' get back in the kitchen and out of the armed services.

    Oh, it wasn't flat again today, but if you didn't catch the morrow sesh then it really, really really sucked.......a two foot to a smallish three foot, junky, closed-out mess.......well at least where I was.

    Flat.............................................. ......................Flat, that's flat
