Red State Update

Yesterday, my nephew in law brought his 10 year old son over to my folks back yard to practice target shooting his new bb gun in their back acre. His own yard being to small and close to neighbors.

Today several of the menfolk relatives are going out target practicing at the gun club here in this rural red state. Apparently, some received new rifles for Christmas.

Just wondering what all the men folk in blue states will be doing?

Also wondering if I should buy a gun for self-defense, but don't want to give business to Red Corporations.
Also, I'm afraid I might accidentally shoot myself in the foot or worse.

Just living in the real red world.

Moscow Mules seem popular this season...

I noticed while shopping yesterday that copper cups to make Moscow Mules were displayed front and center in several stores. Also noted that the bar I ate made a great Moscow Mule. In past years most bars did not have a clue what a Moscow Mule was, if I ordered one. Does this surge of Moscow Mule popularity mean anything?
Re the tRump Putin connection?? Discuss. Or not.
