Unmarked imports (think GTRs supras evo's)
Chase car mounted radars (highway patrol are called chase cars colloquially here)
Then we have red light cameras, speed cameras by the dozen (one in sydney took over 12 million last year, alone)
We also have 'safety cameras' which are a red light camera with a speed camera built in.

We have to pull over whether they are in a '88 R32 in hot pink on 20s, they have P plates on (google it) and they try to race us.

I live in a burb of the Republic of Kansas City Missery.. I mean Mizzurahhh...

Here they just have plain (any random color) Ford Crown Vic's, POS 5.7L chargers (plain, any color), and highway patrol uses $50,000 base price + all the police garbage 10mpg Yukon Denalis for patrol. Love what our city wastes its money on. Randomly there is some jerkoff in a random whatever, I've heard of everything from a honda civic to a C5 base model vette they seized in a drug bust or something that they'll "entrap" people into trying to race.

No, legally its not entrapment for a police officer to instigate a race to bust the person. Its also not entrapment for a police officer to leave a 'bait car' (try a brand new Audi A4 for example, they're what? $45k?) running with the door open in the ghetto to get some piece of **** to steal.

Sorry, but thats like handing out a handgun to every person that walks into a bank just to see who tries to rob the place. Its ******* wrong and it should be ******* illegal. Before someone chastises me, no, I don't think I should have to lock my doors and hide my valuables just to keep some slime ball piece of ******* trash from stealing them. Just because its there doesn't make it right, but see my comment about leaving guns outside a bank.

The real problem is they're too busy locking up these idiot stoners that get caught and overcrowding the jails, so they let people who commit serious crimes out to walk the streets and commit crime again. Personally, having been someone who was just recently a victim of an auto burglary, I think if you're caught breaking into a house or car that does not belong to you to steal the items in it they should lock you up for the rest of your life. You've proven that you're a useless piece of **** that will never contribute to society and no longer deserve to live a free person. Solve that ******* problem right there. Or make it legal to use deadly force to protect your property, like I believe is legal in Texas.



Since this IS a random picture thread....

Texas Castle Doctrine = Win

(a) Except as provided in Subsection (b), a person is justified in using force against another when and to the degree the actor [he] reasonably believes the force is immediately necessary to protect the actor [himself] against the other’s use or attempted use of unlawful force. The actor’s belief that the force was immediately necessary as described by this subsection is presumed to be reasonable if the actor:

(1) knew or had reason to believe that the person against whom the force was used:

(A) unlawfully and with force entered, or was attempting to enter unlawfully and with force, the actor’s occupied habitation, vehicle, or place of business or employment;

(B) unlawfully and with force removed, or was attempting to remove unlawfully and with force, the actor from the actor’s habitation, vehicle, or place of business or employment; or

(C) was committing or attempting to commit aggravated kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated robbery;
More goodness...

(c) A person who has a right to be present at the location where the deadly force is used, who has not provoked the person against whom the deadly force is used, and who is not engaged in criminal activity at the time the deadly force is used is not required to retreat before using deadly force as described by this section.


Mmmm can't wait for zombies:

Texas gun laws are FTW.

elesjuan - WRT baiting, your bank analogy isn't fair. Leaving a nice car in a bad neighborhood is damned smart as a tactic to catch thieves and hurts no one (unlike handing out guns to randoms). Plus, it makes good television (aww, **** dawg, we done boosted a bait car, ****, we goin' t' jail!).

None of the pieces of **** posted above would drop a zombie. Here's a real zombie-killin' machine:

SKS would drop a zombie, from 300 meters.

I've had an SKS and it wasn't accurate for **** beyond 150 yds. And much energy is wasted cycling the action that could be used to send the projectile downrange. Most urban work is done in close anyway.

For stopping a zombie or just a run-of-the-mill home invasion I'd rather have a high capacity pump 12 gauge with some buckshot.

Not at all... Well in SC that is. No tax stamp either here. Could buy one now for $725 and $5 in taxes... Will be shooting one soon. Joys of knowing gun shop owners who are Class III dealers/manufacturers...

A Winchester 1300? Who the hell buys Winchester shotguns anymore?

No way in hell I would pay $725 for that. Let me rephrase that. Owning a small shotgun just to say I have one is not really my cup of tea and I think it is overpriced at $725.

My three shot $50 zombie killer (with $3 DIY Walmart laser pointer) - 20 GA so you don't break your wrist shooting it:


Paid $325 out the door new for this 8 shot Persuader:


Wife shooting it for the first time (I think she likes it):

It's not a short-barreled shotgun because it doesn't have a stock. You can own a SBS but the NFA tax stamp on them is $200. That's federal law, nobody in any state is exempt from it. Shot-pistols like the one pictured are classified as "any other weapon" (AOW) under the NFA, still have to do paperwork with the feds but the tax stamp on those is only $5.

Is that first one really a 20 Gauge? Looks like a mag in there which is typical of a rifle. What length barrel is on it?

Yes, 20 GA. It has a 2 round mag plus 1 in the chamber. The barrel is EXACTLY 18.0000000000001" long.

It looked like this when I bought it (I am proud of how the stock/handle turned out - It took a shitload of sanding to get it to look like that):

None of that **** is a good zombie killer. Have you ever seen two zombies? No, they're always in big packs. What you need is this:

With a can of ammo at your side.
