Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Texan?

Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Texan?

Here is a little test that will help you decide:

You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.

Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you…

You are carrying a Springfield XD-40 Sub-Compact loaded with 180gr BONDED Ranger Talons, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

What do you do?

A Democrat’s Answer:

· Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!

· Does the man look poor or oppressed?

· Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

· Could we run away?

· What does my wife think?

· What about the kids?

· Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

· What does the law say about this situation?

· Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?

· Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway? What kind of message does this send to society and to my children?

· Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?

· Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

· If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

· Should I call 9-1-1?

· Why is this street so deserted?

· We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.

· Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.

· I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

· This is all so confusing!

A Republican’s Answer:


A Texans Answer:


Click… (Sounds of reloading)


Click… (Sounds of reloading)

American Angel: ‘Nice grouping, Daddy!’

213: ‘Can I shoot the next one Dad?’

WSM: ‘You are NOT taking that to the Taxidermist!’

And that is what I love about America!

    Redneck bog dwelling hicks answer:

    Bang bang bang bang bang, sounds of zipper being being pulled down, Redneck unloads bladder on dead terrorists head….

  2. Capt Ron says:

    A real Texan would say, “Here, son, take this 40 and hand me the 45…”

  3. TexasFred says:

    Capt. Ron — Some of us carry concealed guns that can actually BE concealed… :P

    You KNOW I love my XD-45 Tactical, you have one identical to it too, but, as my neighbor and fellow Texan, you also know, ya gotta wear heavier clothes to cover a REAL .45, a full size 5″ job, and it’s too damned hot to wear MORE clothes…

    I can zap the bastards with .40 HydraShoks or Ranger Talons… :twisted:

  4. Texasperated says:

    Springfield XD-40. Musta been a Texas trooper. Now a Texas Marine woulda been carrying a 1911.

  5. Capt Ron says:

    I have a 1911, 4″ for better concealment, and loaded at that. Fred likes it. I just had to get Fred’s dander up with the 40 comment. You know I love ya, Fred.

  6. Capt Ron says:

    By the way, I’m a Squid.

  7. TexasFred says:

    Yeah yeah yeah… Whatever… :P

    I don’t even own a 1911 any more, if I hit the lotto I plan to get one, probably a Springfield 1911, just because I really love a 1911 for plinking… And they ARE beautiful… But the 7+1 vs 13+1 still makes me favor an XD-45 and if I DO need a concealable .45, there’s always an XD-45 Service and they have a Compact, not a SUB, but still, pretty small…

    It’s a damned HAND CANNON!! :?

  8. TexasFred says:

    Texasperated, you know Capt. Ron, he lives across the street from me, and he too is a member of the Bill Gibson Social Club… LMAO…

    I can’t wait for Giddy-up to read and report THAT remark… :twisted:

  9. Texasperated says:

    @Capt Ron — Oh, we all LOVE Fred (he’s so lovable and squeezable). My son has a Springfield Armoury 1911 commemorative which he keeps in a box and workhorse PT1911 by Taurus (like mine). He reconfigured the Taurus amibidextrous safety to RH only. It is much more stable now.

    And Fred I agree — more bangs between the click-thunk the better. I have 8+1 configuration and sometimes feel like the thing is causing me to list starboard. OTOH, the XD-40 is a lighter gun to make up for the add’l rounds.

    As you know, I carry an add’l 16 rds on my belt in two magazines. Still, if I were ever in a gunfight where more than a few shots were required, I’d rather not have to reload unless I can do it like this guy.

  10. AmericanAngel says:

    Hey Dad, can I have the next one?

  11. TexasFred says:

    AmericanAngel — That’s MY girl!! :P

  12. minuteman26 says:

    Picked up a KelTec P11. 9mm. 10+1. Small enough to carry in the pocket of my jeans. Using Speer Gold Dot 124 gr short barrel hollow points. Doesn’t start with a 4, but still bites. Also have an XD45 tactical, but Fred’s right, its too big to conceal in the summer.

  13. Robert says:

    UhOh Minuteman… 9mm? Waiting for the “Squat to pee” comment: 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…

  14. johnko1 says:

    All of ya’ll with these multiple boom’s. If you had the proper training it would only take 3 booms, 2 center mass and one to the head in case he’s wearing body armor. That way you don’t have to worry about reloading in the event he’s got partners. With my PT145 I can take out 3 without worrying about reloading. Still, the thought of shooting him all of those times is nice. Kinda gives ya that warm fuzzy feeling.

  15. TexasFred says:

    johnko1 — I HAVE that training, but some bastards are just fun to shoot… :twisted:

  16. johnko1 says:

    True, so true Fred.

  17. Texasperated says:

    @Johnko1 — I figger, if I have to reload anyway why not empty the mag first?

  18. Katie says:

    Not born it, but definitely Texan.

    Shoot Reload Shoot until you are out of ammo.

  19. Lee says:

    That the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read.

    A democrat with a gun… geesh. :)

  20. TexasFred says:

    Lee — I am LMAO, I thought the exact same thing myself… :P
