As polarizing as Trump is, there is some logic behind why people like him, and its not in his greatness, its in his flaws.
Shooting is not a cheap hobby. Especially with 8 years under Obama's rule. The fear of a gun ban, and ammo shortages have lead to massive amounts of ammo hoarding. Now that we have a chance to get a pro gun candidate elected these fears are starting to go away, and as a result store shelves are rather well stocked on most common calibers.

Every guy finds themself in a situation where they are challenged with a problem that requires tools, yet we don't tend to carry a tool box with us everywhere we go.

If you are a couple or single lady looking for the wildest NYE Party in Houston, then Head to the Ritz on South I-45. The reason this event is perfect for couples is they DO NOT allow single males to enter. This creates a fun safe environment so you and your significant other can party the night away without dealing with the typical Nightclub experience. Tickets are $150 / couple at the door, with doors opening at 8PM. This gives you access to their Dinner Buffet before 9PM. Champagne Toast at Midnight, with Balloon and Confetti drop from the second floor atrium. After Midnight they open a full Breakfast buffet including all your favorites. You still have to buy your drinks, but bottle services is available. Last time I checked out of the 30+ Bottle Service Tables, only 2 were remaining. This is an event where the girls can get away with wearing much less than they normally would for a night out. Full Access to the Poles and stages for dancing. There will be no strippers at the club this night. Its a full club takeover by the DesirousParty Group.
