Texas tan line

No point to this. Just made me laugh.

In the news this week a southern California man was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and had (by rough estimate) 1-million rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also has a secret escape tunnel. The television reporter said: “Wow! He has about a million machine gun bullets” and the headline referred to it as a “massive weapons cache”.

By California standards, someone owning even 100,000 rounds would be called “mentally unstable.”

If he lived elsewhere, such as Arizona he’d be called “an avid gun collector”.

In Arkansas, he’d be called “a novice gun collector”.

In Utah, he’d be called “moderately well prepared”, but they’d probably reserve judgment until they made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.

In Montana, he’d be called “The neighborhood ‘Go-To’ guy”.

In Idaho, he’d be called “a likely gubernatorial candidate”.

In Wyoming, he’d be called “an eligible bachelor” and…..

… Texas, he’d be called “A huntin’ budd.”

  1. The “Texas Tan Line” photo is hysterical!

      I presume you all have tan lines like that. Except for Alaskans. And people from Idaho. (Theirs would be more of a potato shape I’d imagine – or one of those old-fashioned spud guns maybe? If you have those in America.)

  2. I’d call him a hoarder.

    Bring in a life style guru.

      That could work. Like a capsule selection of clothes – fewer items but able to combine in more combinations. Fewer guns, but with more attachments. And of course sticking to bikinis frees up drawer space for ammunition.

  3. And we just know there are many many trigger happy hombres out there envying this yoke.

  4. For a moment I thought, what’s that titillating photo for? Then I spotted the outline of the gun.

    A hundred guns and a million rounds? The man’s completely crazy. All that weaponry should have been confiscated years ago. It’s a miracle he hasn’t gone on a rampage and killed hundreds of people.

    I love all the different descriptions from the different states.

  5. Hmm, wonder what a female with that collection would be called? Other than a “pistol packin’ mama.” Blessings – Maxi

    Must be totally paranoid!

  7. Now did lady revolver use a template or later use vodka to remove the tan for the shape?

  8. I never understood when people had a zillion guns. You can’t use that many. I could maybe fight with five guns at once. Six, tops. But, that depends on if I’m able to sit and use my feet to shoot or if I must be on the move.
