Looks like Sierra is doing even more clearance. And looks like other people found out about that steal on the large duffle since it’s gone now ;). The red small duffle is $100 which is insanely cheap and red and black totes are on clearance as is a red zipped tote.

Just want to say @OtterMeanGreen & @Davey13 damn you both because all I have done is look at expensive knives and mods for the last few days. And of course, I'm finding stuff I can't get anymore. You are both terrible people and should be ashamed.
Happy to be of some distraction in these times. I myself these last 3 days have been looking into buying my first firearm. So far I have a pistol picked out, a shotgun and searching for a rifle (or "other") currently. I have never owned a firearm before and living in New Jersey, with all of these anti freedom laws (and a Governor who is rivaling Castro), it's not an ideal place or time to start. Better late then never still.

Well share those deets. I keep looking at fancy new items after my recent build.

I start this post with the statement that I’m not looking to be difficult. We here are friends and have shared much in common over a number of years now.

I also make the comment that I’ve lived in the USA twice as well as working for a number of US businesses. So I’m not a newcomer to the ways of Americans.

But, but.... why the desire to own even one gun? Assuming for a moment that you don’t intend to hunt (ie a pistol), and being a person who is (cough) famed for their research - doesn’t all the data show that gun ownership results in higher suicide rates, more deaths from accidents etc etc etc? And in the event of actually having to use the thing in anger, your own risk of injury skyrockets?

I know this is contentious and much debated. So it’s a genuine question, but also one of an internationalist saddened by the repeated (there’s even an algorithm to predict when and how many) mass casualty events that happen in the US.

Was there more than one color for the zip totes available? Thought I saw more than just red available briefly

I’m sure @CCF1897 can give you a more detailed response, and he is certainly welcome to. Short answer: because it’s our right to. This country was founded on them, and had we not had equal force, we would still be under British tyrannical rule. Different times I know, but actually I believe we are in worse times. With this current situation our country is in, and the world, I find our rights are being whittled away day by day. We don’t even have free speech anymore on public social media platforms, when that speech goes against invented community guidelines. I was going to wait to post my new avatar, as customary with every 1,000 posts, but I feel there is not a better time then now, when further divide is forcing each other apart. Mask wearers versus non-mask wearers, police versus protesters. It’s saddening seeing this breakdown in society before my very eyes.

It’s better to have it and not need it, then not have it at all. I’m a pacifist by nature, in my family I was often the peacemaker (4 kids), and I don’t hunt or have an inclination or desire for it. But currently I have no means of defense, or a proficiency to do so.

I grew up around guns, and I view them no different than most tools or even a fishing pole. I’m an avid outdoorsman and enjoy shooting sports. I own a mix of all types of firearms and they all have a different purpose. I carry a pistol a lot while hunting big game or out scouting in remote areas for waterfowl. I’ve come across feral dogs that weren’t the nicest, people out in rural areas manufacturing or doing drugs. We had a large drug grow on a piece of public land I hunt and was advised by local law enforcement to be very vigilant.
I live in a very nice area, that is a few miles from not so nice area that I travel through quite a bit. I’m a non violent person, but I also believe in protecting myself and family. In certain areas our police thats 17min to answer a 911 call, even longer to respond. Most places I hunt have 1 law enforcement officer for 50 to 60 miles. My family have places that the nearest law enforcement officer is two hour drive out west.
Ive been in a few situations where having a visible firearm has had people turn the other way or leave me alone when they appeared to be up to no go out in the middle of nowhere.
