Yeah I got a funny look off the cleaner when I asked him to "hoover under our desk"

Back on topic, which states don't allow Greencard holders CCW's.

I've emailed the Indiana State Police for clarification.

You would need to check every State law for that
Indiana do not seem to be clear

Then today I was at the range, which was packed (I waited 1 hour to get a lane), and met a few guys who said the wait time on a new Glock was 3 weeks at the local gunshop.
That's odd. My spouse has no problem finding the firearms he wants. Ditto the ammo.

We buy ammo online, admittedly in bulk.

I was at an indoor range this past weekend and we were there about 10 minutes before the range opened and there were already six people waiting at the front door ahead of us. By opening time, there were more than double that number waiting to go in. Fortunately, we got assigned a bay immediately once inside.

Shot just that (a Glock 26) last weekend. It's OK and I did shoot well with it but I still like SIGs.

Was it deathwish where he suspended the guy over the meat grinder, then lowered him in when he didn't tell him about his dogs

Nice to hear he's keeping busy!

Yeah that made me laugh too. Makes you wonder if he's going to come around to the house and personally show you how to lure the bad guys to you when it's dark in the parking lot at the mall, doesn't it?

It's all just a part of the act, he deliberately looks like a victim... 'til he suddenly produces his XDm from inside the jacket.

Nope -- there's a shortage here in AZ. FIL, who rolls his own, has taken to going round the common desert shooting spots outside town and picking up the spent cases for recycling. He probably has enough ammo to keep a Central American revolution on course for a month or three. Of course, much of it is fueled by the silly e-mails about Obama that this generation circulate without the benefit of contemporary critical thinking skills.

He was going on the other week about how much gun prices have risen. I suggested it would be a good time, then, to get rid of a gross or so of weapons and make a tidy buck. You could have heard a pin drop for the hour after i suggested that. SWMBO kicked me under the table.
