NRA Family of the Year

On Monday night my family got together for family pictures, here is one of my favorites... it is my sisters and sister-in-laws, I'm the fat one in red...

(note to any Government officials: all guns in said pictures are fake, bb, pellet, airsoft, and/or barrowed, not belonging to any person in photo)
we're the second line of defense, here's our first line of defense...

Rudy is down in the front on the right with our boys by him- Noah in his arms, Phil by his side in the cowboy hat, and Isaiah (soon to be 12!) in the light blue kneeling to the left of Phil. All so good looking!

The brothers were asked to wear plaid with a country theme... but the other boys were only told collared shirts... girls were told solid shirts with no red or orange (obviously I didn't hear that part) with a family this big (40 of us) it is hard to get the same message to all!

open carry in Cailfornia?!?

well, it can be done...
we all know it is legal...
here I am at the Bass Pro Shop, in Manteca CA, with the kids doing "summer camp" activities there...

I got lots of strange looks, but the only one who said anything was a high school boy who wanted to know if I was in law enforcement, I chuckled and said no, "Is it to intimidate bad guys?" I smiled "No, I'm making a political statement." "Oh"

My husband said only I could get away with it... he might be right.

the gun I was carrying is a Power Line 15XT Semi-automatic Repeater, it is a .177 caliber, with blade and ramp front / fixed open rear sights, a smooth bore steel barrel, a 15 shot magazine, and a maximum shooting distance of 220 meters.   :P

(when making a stand I find that it is best not to just stand there and wait... or drive your own car... or carry your cell phone with you... oh, and don't forget to keep your ID/credit cards in your faraday wallet)
