Is that what the kids are calling their junk nowadays? Never heard that before...

Nah, older generation of Texans use the term too. It refers to the large pick ups with two rear tyres. I'm pretty certain I'm the only person in this county to drive a sedan.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    I felt that bug out gear -> non-permissive environments -> body cavity searches -> large pick up trucks -> genitals (specifically Mike's)

    was a fairly relevant progression that added value to the discussion didn't you?  :neener
