Slackware and firearms


Sorry, off-topic.

Also, the Slackware team almost universally carries firearms daily. My current carry piece is a stainless high-cap Para Ordanance 1911 in .
That's probably the first thing about Slackware (team) that I don't like. I find it hard to believe that Pat would carry a gun on a daily basis. Actually, that's my next question: Do you carry a gun on a daily basis? if so, what for?

I'm afraid I misspoke in saying that the Slackware team "almost universally carries firearms" regularly. That statement is (probably) factually incorrect. What I meant is that either a strong majority or nearly every Slackware user that attends the South-East Linux Fest (the place we've most recently congregated in the flesh) possesses a firearm that they regularly carry with them. This is not to say that Pat does or does not (I'll let him answer that question if he wants), but many of us do.

Also, assigning that to the Slackware team in general is really incorrect. We have a wide range of personal feelings on just about every issue (except which distribution everyone should use), but I would classify any discussion on firearms as being very liberal in the sense that people shouldn't be restricted in that area or pretty much any other.

In continuance of the off-topic nature of all my posts in this thread, you might also like to know that several of us have a strong appreciation for classic cars and high performance engines (not the database kind).

I guess if there's one thing to take away from all this is that we're all (mostly) normal guys who like guy stuff. Some of our off-topic conversations are as interesting as anything anyone's doing with Slackware.

Also, we like beer. And whiskey. And scotch.

Like The Fly ("Half man. Half insect. Total terror.") this thread was an unholy attempt to weld two disparate topics together. And just like BrundleFly this one didn't survive. The remainder is chucked in Thread Hell aka the General Forum where you can see forum members slog it out without the use of the independently targeting particle beam Phalanx, tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, nukes or knives.
