    I will then continue forward, comfortable in what I have said above because fuck it, it's been a long and busy week between fighting for supplies, boarding up my home, riding out the storm and then getting a bunch trees off of houses. So yeah, I needed a little dark humor yesterday and I still do today. That doesn't make me right or justified, but I'm not really in a mood to care at this moment.

    For all of you with firearms recommendations, I submit that 1, you need both your hands to work the chain saw and 2, that semi-auto pistols jam - and you will get it wet. I recommend a revolver. The S&W 686 is my standby: https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/model-686.

    Enough kick to stop a gator, never jams and you can always hit people with it if you run out of ammo.
    Yea, agreed. A little dark humor after having gone through that in FL could be a much needed relief. I, for one, am just glad that everyone I know in FL are safe and sound after riding it through.
    Oh, you forgot one major point on the S&W - it's looks cool as f*ck.

    Love this suggestion, and I love my 23 even more. I just picked up a Sig Sauer P229 that I'm going to compare the G23 to this weekend.

    Glad all you Dappered Texas and Florida residents are safe! Our thoughts and prayers are with y'all!

    Thank you for your service!

    Love this reply - you're a good guy. I am glad you're safe and sound.

    I'd we willing to bet my Glock will not jam when wet. Revolvers are awesome, though - super reliable!

    Don't forget the scuba gear for us Texas folk.

    I found my crowbar, sledgehammer, and dust mask to be the hot accessory items this month.

    Bad taste is my brother in law asking me if he could borrow a Jean shirt or Jean jacket for a bachelor party, while all my clothes are in bags and I am tearing my family home down to the studs. I hung up on him.

    I think you are good!

    Do your thing buddy, and good luck. As someone coordinating emergency services in Louisiana in response to Harvey, my thoughts are with you (because my actions are already full up).

    Exactly, and gracias for all the work. Your colleagues down here made my life a hell of a lot easier evacuating.

    De nada, and glad to hear it.

    Side note (not to you but generally): "this is in poor taste" isn't a moral judgment; it's startling to me how many people think it is.
