in East Oakville?

There are 18 golf courses in and around Oakville, including the one that the Canadian Open is played on but none of them are in this end of town. Teslas are more common here than Chevs. That is literally true.

I bet those Tesla owners all have second and third vehicles for when the Tesla won’t do .

I can't say but you're hard pressed to find single vehicle housholds around here. We are a relatively humble family surrounded by multimillionaires and we have three. Anyway, short range, urban use on flat terrain is quite different from what you would deal with, pigs. Teslas are VERY popular, here.

Still being a jerk I see! And being pretty disloyal! Ontario is the auto manufacturing centre of Canada and a loyal person should support his province. G.M., Ford, or Chrysler should be the ONLY vehicles sold there. Kick the f**king foreigners back to where they came from. TRUMP has the right idea!

Not many Italians about (rare around here) here but there are a fair number of Lamborghinis on the road.

the Ford plant here is literally right across the road from the exotic car leasing lot. I live three kilometers from the Ford assembly line.

Two of our three cars are Fords, although the other Japanese one is by far the more reliable, better built, better designed, better engineered, more efficient, nicer driving and less expensive one.


BTW, Tesla is an American brand assembled in America ... just thought that you should know.

Yep, Japanese cars certainly aren't the pieces of shit they were years ago. Thinking back to when my sister drove a '74 Mazda. The best thing about it was the paint job - Lemon yellow!

The early ones rusted out fast. The Japanese studiied the problems, did oodles of research in North America and came back with a superior product. The North American manufacturers arrogantly did diddly-nothing and now the whole planet has passed them by.

To this very day, no North American marque has figured out how to make a four cylinder engine that isn't a lump of scrap, so they still buy the technology from overseas (mainly Japan).

Whatever modern use you have applied your handguns to in modern times were likely never considered by the designers.

Really? It's easier to use a rifle to protect yourself from wild beasts than a pistol? Why do guys on "bear watch" pack side arms? To kill people?

Now I wait for your stupid comnent where you tell me bear watch isn't a real job or should I just post what you don't want to see?

Hmmmmm

The question was specifically about hand guns and semi/auto "Assault" type rifles, never about Grand Dad's ole 30-06.

Do YOU think that the Austrian engineers who designed the Glock for the Austrian Army were using "Enforcement, Justice and Wild Bear Attacks" as their primary design criteria?

Think hard, now. The Austrians are a very practical people.

It was safe to travel in Nor Am without a firearm in the 1800s? Pistols were harder to handle than a rifle when you have only seconds to protect yourself?

Blah,blah.blah.

The Austrians did not design the Glock so that Canadian hobby wankers can go into the back country. The Austrian army who commissioned the piece, couldn't have given a flying feck in Hades what you do with them in the Canadian wilderness.

The simple question is: What is the first and foremost designed-in function of the mechanism that is the Glock? Why is there a Glock?

You guys dance fecking tangos to avoid the one simple answer.


And no, it had nothing whatsoever to do with wildlife of any type.

Go back a page or two to where you stated "hand guns were made to only kill people".

We're you drunk again and forgot you posted that?

There is help out there to put the liquor behind you.

I'm sitting in the shade, in the back yard on a beautiful day fighting a viscious summer cold that's making my eyes weep and drinking a Raspberry Bubly.

Oh, and my son is practicing his drums in the basement.
