    Okay, maybe those training proposals will turn up later. Unless somebody beats me to it, I'll see if I can prioritize an email to Giffords, Schumer and Feinstein asking if they know where we can find some. So on to Myth #3, which is: In busting this myth, Giffords helpfully points out that various studies may not agree. Strangely, however, Giffords does not address the concept that *your* gun may not participate in a study when it comes time to use it. In addition, the idea that "permissive concealed carry laws may actually increase the frequency of some type of crime, such as assault" is just laughable, but maybe Giffords was just having a bad day when they highlighted that. Let's sit down with some different studies and hash this all out. We'll get the Giffords studies and the studies that indicate something different from the Giffords studies and we'll figure this out together. With the right statistics and some central planning, all things are possible. Also, we're confident that Giffords won't find correlations or infer causations or draw conclusions that aren't justified, because they never do that. I mean, the evidence is right there in their argument:

    LOL ...I was on "another archery forum" the other day and somebody had to explain that "FB" meant Facebook and "XX" meant the guy they were discussing (whose initials are XX, LOL). I thought that was a little overboard, but other much less obvious initials were flying around as well, so ... What I can't stand is when forum members use another poster's real name instead of his handle. How am I supposed to know who "Jim" is? Is he Grizlyluvr48, or Whackmaster69? And why is "that A-hole who we all know who he is" talking bad about him on AFG? He might build the darn-tootenist LRR north south east AAAaaandD west of the Pecos (!) but if I can't tell if I like how he measures HS or polishes his TG from reading his posts, I wouldn't be able to stop by his shop next time I'm in the Big A. Know what I mean, Vern?

    Might have been this thread, or one of the newsy ones. Trump's Diet Cokes? I said I saw an article on it but that I didn't read it. "Too stupid; didn't read? TS; DR (?) ...Could that become a thing?" I asked. I didn't get an answer from the judges, so I haven't implemented it yet. But I have an itchy typing finger, and one of these unlicensed keyboards. :beer:

    Speaking of moving forward, you can now probably get permission to own a suppressor faster than it takes to bring a baby to term and deliver it to the world, with about 30 days to spare. That's progress. If you add the time it might take to convince another person to breed with you, things are pretty even between getting government approval for a gun part, and creating human life. So what could go wrong with a federally-approved training program?

    I'm going to give the internet about an hour more to find all these training proposals from anti-reciprocity folks and then we'll more on to the next topic. Hopefullly Chuck Schumer or Diane Feinstein are reading, because they can tell us whether their own training for CC permits was adequate or should we be doing something different. I wouldn't want something like a minor disagreement on a training requirement keep us from moving forward on this issue.

    Yes, that's one thing that chaps my butt. Once upon a time, if you hid your arms you were of suspect character. I guess if you're a bad hombre up to no good and want to carry a gun, it would be better to get the paperwork done and the references checked and the training certified, so you'd have the option of concealed OR open carry. Who doesn't like options?

    Okay, so my request for a heads-up on any other CC record-keeping issues besides Vermont's still stands, but in the meantime let me move on another part of Giffords' Myth Buster #1, which is the question of a lack of uniform CC training requirements among states. I wondered what training requirements would satisfy Giffords, so I tried to find something from them about it. I was unsuccessful. In fact, I couldn't find any proposed training plan from any group, but maybe I missed something. What training requirements would make anti-reciprocity people happy, whether they're official demands from groups or just points you've heard being made by individuals?

    Yes. That's what I was getting at. A lot of web pages aren't accurate anymore, forget about comprehensive. Some will even tell you up front they're out of the updating business, LOL. My Wiki link above lists two additional states, compared to the other Wiki page, LOL: Oklahoma and Montana. So that page tallies 15, including Arkansas, without defining "unrestricted" absolutely literally, as I noted above (i.e., essentially meaning "no permit required" at least in very common situations).

    If you go with a fairly liberal definition of what "unrestricted" means, there are some more states in the mix. Sorry to use Wiki, but I can't find another place where everything's aggregated. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concealed_carry_in_the_United_States But since you're saying that Vermont's the only state with the documentation problem, I'm gonna run with that. I haven't found anything to contradict, and that was my understanding in the past, but since the fine folks at Giffords wanted to make a big fuss about it, I thought I would inventory my ammunition.

    Yeah. I originally read "this place" as meaning Vermont, but I see where you're coming from. As you say, not very coherent, and the new read doesn't make it any better, LOL I'm always in favor of law enforcement knowing the laws when they stop someone. This is why Vermonters go out and get non-resident CC permits, I guess. Those permits would be recognized in something like 20+ states, if I'm not badly mistaken, even though you have have no Vermont papers to show. :fire: I would guess that somebody in Vermont is pushing for some "by request" documentation to be made available to avoid the problem. If anyone knows of such, let me know. Moving on, if we want, is anyone aware of any other documentation issues in any other unrestricted carry states?

    So, still no evidence of any Vt. firearms documents, even "by request"?... What ID is the police chief talking about? Is he talking about someone fraudulently obtaining Vt. residency documents and then leveraging that into "valid" reciprocity out of state? (And by "valid" I mean invalid.) Because that's what it seems like. That appears to be a problem with Vermont government, not national reciprocity, Chief.

    I know, right? How hard is it to marinate something and maybe mop it once or twice? The fire-up-the grill-to-meat ratio just seems off to me. I like the sound of that. I believe in tasting the food, despite the sauce. I know that's not always how the game is played. :-) I will attempt to refrain from influencing the judging.

    Wings are too much trouble for me to get my head around, usually, but I'm interested in the other. I almost bought some to try a while ago. How does it compare to Tiger Sauce or even Pickapeppa, if you know those? If you all are out and about and ever see some Cackalacky sauce, btw, give it a whirl and let me know what you think. http://www.cackalacky.com/the-sauce
