Hot Chocolate

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 31st August 2008

A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups – porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.

When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: ‘Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you’re drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups. Now consider this:

Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly…

And enjoy your hot chocolate.

A Bike that’s fast on the draw!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th August 2008

If you haven’t seen this before, I knew you’d want to know about the “Killacycle”.

It’s the fastest electric-powered cycle on earth. Wow!

Zero to 60 in about one second! Talk about fast on the draw! Check it out.


It’s been around several years, but it was new to me. I thought you’d enjoy seeing it.

The Killacycle shown below posed with a member of the pit crew.

Bill Dube, the owner crashed the bike during a demo and appeared to be dead in the video but he’s OK now.

Tucker now making holsters for several “hot” new guns.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 18th August 2008

You can now own Tucker Gunleather holsters for the HK45, HK45C, HK P30 and the Springfield armory XDm. Right-handed or Left-handed.

More new guns to come.

Gun makers are bringing out new models faster than ever, and we’re doing our best to keep up.

The Silent Thunder (leather-lined) and Easy Reach kydex holsters are available for these guns with only 3 week turnaround.

**The Silent Thunder (IWB or belt holster) is not only available quickly, but  we recently surveyed all our customers who bought Silent Thunder holsters since they first came out.

Everyone who responded liked the leather lining, saying it’s incredibly smooth on the draw.

98% of those who answered the survey said the Silent Thunder more than met their expectations. In fact, they were overwhelmingly pleased.

(sweatshield [body shield] is optional. Order with or without.)

Some Teachers in Texas will carry guns.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 16th August 2008

Trustees at the Harrold Independent School District approved a district policy change last October so employees can carry concealed firearms to deter and protect against school shootings, provided the gun-toting teachers follow certain requirements.

Superintendent David Thweatt said the small community is a 30-minute drive from the sheriff’s office, leaving students and teachers without protection. He said the district’s lone campus sits 500 feet from heavily trafficked U.S. 287, which could make it a target.

“When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that’s when all of these shootings started. Why would you put it out there that a group of people can’t defend themselves? That’s like saying ‘sic ’em’ to a dog,” Thweatt said in Friday’s online edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Details here.

I think it’s a sound idea. What about you?

What is AIWB? It’s appendix carry – IWB

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 6th August 2008

I get more and more calls about holsters for carrying IWB between the belt buckle and the hip – about 1-2 o’clock on righty’s and 10-11 o’clock for lefty’s.

Gabe Suarez and others have made this mode of carry more popular lately and we’ve been asked to create a holster that works for appendix carry.

We know it’s got to be stable, secure, comfortable, vertical cant and height adjustable. Also, it needs to bring the gun butt in toward the body more than a similar holster would for behind the hip carry.

What else do we need to know to create a holster just for those of you who are looking to appendix carry or improve on the rig you’ve got?

You still don’t want to live in Washington, D.C.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 5th August 2008

Despite the Supreme Court ruling, it seems that residents of D.C. are having a tough time getting simple gun rights without convoluted barriers and restrictions.

The U.S.House of Representatives may pass a bill to remedy the situation, but it’s iffy to pass in the Senate where it’s easier to block what they don’t really want.

Here’s a good article from the Washington Post with details. Aren’t you tired of all this lefty B.S. – even after the Supreme Court has spoken?

Hush Rush? The left may try.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 2nd August 2008

Stay alert to democrat attempts to reinstitute the “Fairness Doctrine.” It would cause any opinion on the radio to have to be balanced by an opposing opinion as “equal time.” It would likely drive station managers and producers to steer clear of talk radio and commentators like Rush Limbaugh. Nancy Pelosi has already given notice that she’d like to see the fairness doctrine back in force. Here’s a short article that says more about it.


 This is an issue that I will pay attention to and fight against. It’s a first step to “big brother” information management.
