Uh, no asinine inspections please. We just got rid of them back in 2000!

I actually wish they would. I can't tell you how many times I am hauling 80,000 pounds of jet fuel or gasoline and some a hole is in front of me stops or makes a turn and you can't see their blinker or stop lights because they have a $5 piece of plywood on wheels that they call a trailer.

I agree. I understand the reasoning behind eliminating the inspections that the state used to have. However, I think they should have just taken some more time to find a better approach to it's problems. There are too many cars on the road that shouldn't be there. Safety inspections at a minimum should be required. I have a feeling they will be back before too much longer, probably with the addition of emissions.

This is Oklahoma. If we can't even finance more than two snow plows then I doubt anything will take place. BTW, there are literally two snow plows. I'll take a picture of them next time we get "snow."

I think what is going to bring back the inspections is pressure from the EPA, or other higher up agencies for more regulations. I don't see it happening anytime real soon, but I think it will at some point.

As long as we don't become another California. I don't know how people live out there with all their so called "laws".

And I came from NJ where those beast would lead the way down the highway.


Anyways, any of you guys in Tulsa area ever go to 2a shooting range?

Not yet, but I plan on going soon bc it is about a half mile from my house. I usually shoot my guns on my dads property, which is by Lake Tenkiller.

I have only gone twice; once in tulsa, and the other out pass Owasso (forget city/town). However, next time I go, it will be the one out pass Owasso.

I've never been to 2A. Looks nice though, I might go this weekend. I usually go to Happy Hollow but I've been wanting to go to an indoor range.
