    So Sunday in Coeur D alene a Pastor was shot six times in the back with a .45 and survives. Suspect escapes. Crazy enough but it turns out pastor Remington led the prayer at the Ted Cruz rally the day before. The a letter shows up at a local news station from the suspect saying the pastor was part of a master Martian race that rules earth and that he survived is proof because there is no way a human could have.

    Anyway after two days of a massive manhunt around here the suspect was just arrested at the white house throwing "objects" on the lawno_O

    Dang why did it have to be a Vet!

    So where does this put the .45 being a superior defense round with greater stopping power convo?

    I hope the pastor makes a full recovery.

    Too many nut jobs out there.

    Forget the guns, abolish wackos!

    Also a little over 50 hours from N Idaho to DC while being hunted is pretty wild. Especially considering liscence plate readers picked him up heading west toward Spokane after the shooting.

    You only need a fast modified car and 28 hours.

    http://jalopnik.com/meet-the-guy-who-drove-across-the-u-s-in-a-record-28-h-1454092837

    The run was over, and the watches were stopped. According to those involved, they all said the same thing: 28 hours, 50 minutes. The team covered 2,813.7 miles at an average speed of 98 miles per hour. They stopped for fuel just three times. Based on that number, Alex Roy's 31:04 record had been beaten by two hours and 14 minutes.

    Oh, it happened. Hwy-10 through the South, damned near blizzard conditions in the middle of the night through Flagstaff, AZ... about an hour after that I woke up at the intersection at the top of an off ramp, car idling... no clue how that happened! :eek:

    I'd NEVER do that again, ever. o_O

    In 06, I went to Daytona Beach FL for bike week. Driving from Spanaway, WA to Daytona, FL. Three people driving the team van, rotating drivers and stopping ONLY for gas. It took 69.5 nonstop driving hours. If my math is right, it works out to be 2.89 days.

    I did fail to mention I had a buddy alternately driving when zombification set it (except that one time I woke up at the top of that offramp)... and we were doing 65mph on 2" of ice through Flagstaff... we had to slow down in order to be safe. LOL! :D
