    I hope who ever is piloting that drone gets a repetitive motion injury.
    Then try to explain it as work related.

      Too Tall

      I love the way you think.

  • July 4, 2019 at 12:28 am

    The Fourth be with us, still.

  • July 4, 2019 at 12:30 am

    If Naomi is back, that means Javier isn’t far behind. I wonder how long it would take for him to hack the controls of that drone and land it someplace inconvenient for the gubberment?

  • July 4, 2019 at 12:32 am

    still overdressed and…to my eye, a tad 1960 playboyish…too much of a good thing .

    we’ve got Liz Taylor covered…How about tall, slender, perky and waxed?

    Well, I can dream. We can at least agree, still a tad clothing heavy.

    • July 4, 2019 at 12:42 am

      The higher the contributions bar goes, the more comes off. Can’t you see Chris’ tease here?

    • July 4, 2019 at 8:13 am

      You can have Liz. I never cared for her. Her voice grates my ears like claws on a blackboard. Joan Collins, now (who was originally considered for the role in Cleopatra)…

      Happy Independence day, Y’all!

    Sometimes sheer fabric enhances. Nah, nekkid is far better!

      Remember, it’s the TEASE, not necessarily the strip!

      I wear a sarong during the day. much cooler.

        What’s sarong with that?

    Too Tall

    The superb artwork distracted me from checking the ballistics.

    Unless the drone is less than a 1000 feet above ground level (AGL) and less than 1000 feet away, laterally, Naomi is not making that shot with a handgun.

    Even if the drone is operating at less than 500 AGL, that would be a tough shot with a sniper rifle chambered for .50 cal Browning Machine Gun (BMG) round.

    You might get a Scan Eagle or other low altitude drone at that altitude, but except for takeoff and landing, you would never see the Reaper flying that low.

    On the other hand, one of Sam’s deep fried turkeys could probably knock down a satellite in low earth orbit.

      The two shooters in that group certainly have the knowledge and experience to not waste pistol shots at that thing. But while their at-range work has probably centered on AR and Tavor-flavors, here’s the “tool” for flying things, living or dead.

      100 yds? That’s the wheelhouse of the SuperGoose 3 1/2″ 10 Ga. Mag. Had a couple of them come across my counter over the years. Odd but beautiful old gun for a specific purpose. Can be fun too, but hang on tight…10 lbs. and about as long as the girls are tall.

      They could use these in Denver right now and add some sport to the necessary culling and recycling of Canadas, but noooo….those wusses are killing those grand geese on the ground during molt, sitting geese as it were.

        The PGCA website is having a lively discussion on light and heavy 10ga’s. Lights are in the mid 7lb range (ouch) and heavies are in the 10 lb plus range. My version from 1878, tips the scales at just under 11 lb. Choked dead and buried its a death machine to 60 yards.

      If one of those two brunettes is Jo, let HER have the shot!

  • July 4, 2019 at 1:07 am

    Whoever is piloting the drone will bring it in for a closer look.. I know I would.

    • July 4, 2019 at 10:25 am
      Too Tall

      Of course they would, and probably try to get some phone number as well.

      “Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby.”

      “Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full.”

    The farthest one away wearing, a white smock and jet black hair below her waist – is that Jo? I’d risk a little frost bite for a while with that…

    • July 4, 2019 at 2:51 am

      Jan, I’m pretty sure. The one on the far right could either be Skye or Jo. Losing that tattoo has its downside.

      • July 4, 2019 at 8:22 am

        The June 30 strip had “Sky” commenting “Define, Human”, which makes me think it’s actually Jo.

        Zar Belk!

      • July 5, 2019 at 12:04 am

        Concur that it’s Jan.

    • July 4, 2019 at 10:36 am
      Too Tall

      (Left to Right): Jan, Sam, Naomi, and Skye

      • July 4, 2019 at 12:04 pm

        Skye/Jo on the right maybe?

    • July 5, 2019 at 12:41 am
      James F Gemind

      From left to right;

      Jan, Sam, Naomi, and Skye. Could be Jo at the end, if Skye was watching the kids.

      Mari and Yukio(That right?)still have a few years before they can join the aquatic festivities…

  • July 4, 2019 at 6:32 am

    While hoping others will drop theirs into Chris’ tip jar if they haven’t already, I personally think the clothing treatments of these ladies are refreshing. (Contrast with the usual scenery of what some would have pass for women these days (order your eye bleach first.) These ladies are easy on the eyes, clothed or not, and Chris has them as someone you’d want to spend time with – clothed or not.

    Pass along on this day to one’s progeny the seriousness of affirming one’s name to a traitorous document – reminding that they’d already been in the shootin’ stage for over a year & every signator was aware that there was no way through but to win, or dangle at the end of a rope.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

      Red Skelton’s marevelous explanation of the Pledge:

      And John Wayne’s:

      ZAR BELK!

      • July 4, 2019 at 1:46 pm

        Never a big fan of Red’s comedy, but that right there is beautiful, and obviously heartfelt. Good patriot. Good man.

    • July 4, 2019 at 9:07 am

      Careful there, Paul. Democrats are a hair’s breadth away from defining the pledge as verboten “hate speech”, punishable by milkshaking or far worse…

      Feels more like Thanksgiving today, actually. Thankful we elected such a strong and wise president, the first since 1980 not to cave. Can’t wait to see the American Pride extravaganza he’s got planned today – the implosion of “progressive” talking heads will be spectacular to behold.

      • July 4, 2019 at 12:20 pm

        “Trump’s Parade” they say so scornfully.

        To be so smart, they sure are dumb. Their epithets against him continue to become badges of honor, mocking them…

        Toxic Deplorables, Trump’s Trade War, Trump’s Belligerence, now this sickening display of pride and capability in Trump’s Parade.

        They keep slapping on the labels and he (and we) keep wearing them gladly. They think eventually their hate will stick. Before you know it, they’ll be planning to try socialism one more time, but get it right this time.

        Yes, they are insane.

      • July 4, 2019 at 1:48 pm

        At the rate they are pushing. They will come up with something that causes another “shot heard around the world”.
        Happy 4th. Celebrate our freedom and careful with the BBQ fires that can be seen from space.

  • July 4, 2019 at 10:13 am

    That ain’t birdshot. Throwing chunks of lead into the sky? What or who is downrange of that trajectory? Besides, you bring down metal birds with freakin’ lasers.

    Anywho, here’s a hi-rez reminder lest we forget what’s great about today:

    • July 4, 2019 at 12:29 pm

      He’s surfing all the negative waves from the left.

    • July 4, 2019 at 10:50 pm

      Out there probably anything within range of a 9 or 38 is also within line of sight.

      But yeah, Rule 4 applies as much to what is below as to what is beyond your target.

  • July 4, 2019 at 11:18 am

    So it falls to Naomi to do the acknowledging of the meaning of the day…

    A Mossad Jewess in the era of Trump and Bibi against virtually the entire rest of the world surrounding the tiny country knows better than anyone the Spirit it celebrates. That is sublime, and a helluva tribute to Independence Day.
    Thanks, CM.

    On a side note, those women need to be careful brandishing those things…
    …and with the firearms too. 🙂

    Srsly I am good with the gun handling of the two ladies in the middle, but I’m glad Skye/Jo apparently ain’t holding, and I can’t tell WTF Jan is doing back there; hopefully Damon’s influence has imbued the Rules.

    Happy Independence Day too all, and thanks to God for America !!!and DJT!!!

  • July 4, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    Jan is passing a speed loader to Naomi.

    • July 4, 2019 at 6:22 pm

      Dang, upon embiggenment I see that you are right! Dinky iphone pic.

      The minute and accurate detail around here is pretty excellent ain’t it?

    Happy Armed Citizen Insurrection Day!!!!

  • July 5, 2019 at 4:42 am

    We all just celebrated what armed citizens did.
    Happy Independence Day.

    I believe that it has been done before. William Tell and the Swiss come to mind.
    I sometimes get the notion that we are in some form of Brexit from the same or similar forces in control here before.
