    Seems a bunch of the spas are advertising on BP again after being closed down just recently. Anyone experienced LI'ers know how long before these places cool down and are relatively safe again? Been hotel hopping mostly and I do miss having a reliable RT place to goto.

    @genius,

    Can you weigh in on my questions. I am thinking that you may know about this based on your experience over the years.

    I knew a girl who was doing very well escorting. I think she was up to $500/hour. But she wanted to maintain her day job as a cover/explanation to her family why she had money.

    She was working the counter at CVS. Probably close to minimum wage. For regular shifts. I just don't know how you spend your whole day doing that when you have the other option.

    The women who work at a massage parlor and then leave the business. How many of them do you guys think return to the business? Is it for the money? Are there other reasons?

    I know a young woman who, when I first met her, was working at a former advertiser here which was an upscale R&T shop. Now she is coming close to getting her license after the schooling/training. I wonder how long she will stay "legit" while earning a fraction of what she used to make before she says "fuck it."

    60 nothing wrong with your outlook. No shame needed. Never did it for sport or trophy. ALWAYS eat what I get or barter for something else. (Fresh veggies or fruits) it's the ultimate in organic and fresh food. Grew up when LI was mostly farms. As my pops told me "what do u think it looks like before the styrofoam and plastic" I know I could buy most of what I eat but it stokes my ego a little knowing I can find, procure and cook the food I provide for my family.
    PS I no longer hunt anything warm blooded.

    Call me compassionate, a wuss, a coward, boring, girlyman, etc. Whatever you would like, I don't care and I am not embarrassed or ashamed of it in any way.

    But I could never kill or harm another living thing for sport, or intentionally without absolute necessity.

    I can't even consciously step on an ant hill. Fishing is out of the question. Hunting... no way.

    Why? I don't honestly know. It has nothing to do with religion. I do know that I take "live and let live" to the extreme.

    Stopped hunting for same reason. Now I am an aquatic hunter. Sometimes knife, speargun, or rod and reel. I have become a master baiter and proficient hooker.

    My last post about Hunting. (Deer anyway - I will still post about tracking and hunting pussy)
    When I said head shot as was referring to a head shot it was in the context of "a big boar heading toward me" and me standing there with a pistol. Hitting anything with a pistol in my experience ain't all that easy , requires you to be close and is complicated further by your own adrenaline rush of seeing a big pissed off animal heading toward you (have any of you non-hunters wonder why when you read about a gun fight where a cop, who tis trained in the use of his pistol, fires 10 shots at a suspect at close range and hitting him once in the shoulder and once in the leg and 8 misses?). I would think you would want to fire at the center of the mass heading toward you in that circumstance which would probably end up with some rounds in the head (for 4 short legged targets).

    My experience was with deer in the 3 years I hunted, I ended up placing a single round right above the front leg with a 35 caliber rifle, standard stock sights at around 40 yards. The animals were knocked down from the impact of a 220grain flat nose bullet, and couldn't get back up while they bled out. No tracking required and it was dead by the times I walked up to it. I always had 2 rounds in the rifle (336 lever action), with one in the chamber and one in the magazine (I never like the idea of nose to primer configuration of multiple rounds in the magazine).
    This was all around 30 years ago and I stopped hunting as I just found it too dangerous - when sunrise happened sounded like I was in a battle zone - why someone needed to take 5+ rapid fire shoots at a deer said to me I was dealing with idiots who didn't know what they were doing. Plus around that time I started seeing a lot of .223 weapons, i.e. assault rifles, which to me were inappropriate and dangerous (to others down range) for use in the brush.

    ps. never kept any "head trophies" although I did keep one dear hide. Always had the meat butchered upstate and came home with boxes of wrapped and labeled meat for the freezer.

    Looks like we need a HUNTING and/or GUNS thread. If enough guys like this, maybe one can be created and these posts moved.

    Not everyone can be as proficient as you ( both in life and hunting ). Rarely do I see a hunter take a head shot. First of all it would ruin the trophy if that's what you're looking for. Second it's too hard. The head is small and continuously moving. Most that I know go for the center of mass ( heart and lungs ) it's an easier shot plus it's what you are taught in EVERY hunter course that I have ever been to. Sometimes a small caliber is needed to speed up the process when only the lung is hit. And to bring home a boar with a 44 is a thrill. I've got some redneck friends that make fun of me for using a firearm. They use paracord and a knife and are far more successful than me. But I digress this is not the thread to speak of hunting tactics. Unless ur hunting pussy. Off my soapbox now.

    I understand having a sidearm in addition to your rifle/shotgun but I would think you would need to be fairly close (and I certainly wouldn't want to be) to a big boar heading toward me to get off a head shot.
    ps. This is not bragging but just a indication of how I setup a shot with my lever action 35 but I have never needed a second shot no less than a mercy shot (deer).

    Yes hunting with a pistol. Big bore for big boar is very common. Also used for a "mercy" shot on big game if your first shot was not exact. Always seem to have a sidearm when going for bear as well. Kind of like an insurance policy. Plus it works better than that stupid bear mace.

    WIZARD... I know that we have (me mostly) have beaten this subject to a pulp and I am ending it here with one last statement...

    I had a heart to "hard on" talk with junior this morning and that part of me, convinced me that per your and MDC's suggestion, I really should try to care a little bit less. Lol

    And thanks to all here who engaged me in my rambling. Sorry for the thread diversion.

    I did not mean to infer that you were a hater (admittedly, it did come off that way). A little cold hearted in your stand on this... Yes. Lol. However, I do understand your position since you don't know her and am judging in a more objective way, as would a court.

    Many of our providers do find their way into our hearts as we grow to know and trust them better, especially the ones have have been extra good to us and have proven a sincerity. We are all breaking the law here and as the group we are, we will be the only ones who will feel some sympathy for the individual who gets caught. Everyone else in society would just as well see us suffer. Providers and mongers are not considered pillars of society. Therefore, all we have is each other for understanding and compassion.

    The 120.00 fine is nothing of a financial loss. However, the money they put into buying or setting up the shop can be substantial. This is the financially devastating part.

    There's no need to explain yourself here. I have no doubt of your legitimacy or the sincerity of your feelings. In fact, I believe I read posts of yours recently where you said you spend all day every Sunday visiting 4 0r 5 AMPS, chatting online with them, going with them to court when they get arrested, etc. So you clearly have more invested in them in time, money and emotion than the average monger. Whatever motivations you have for doing that and whatever void that fills for you is entirely your own, and you owe no one here an explanation, least of all me.
    But don't misinterpret my lack of a similar depth of feeling as me being a "hater". Like I said in my post, I don't wish ill on anyone. But this was a business decision on their part. Like hardnslick alluded to, you don't really think that every dollar that came through that door was reported to the gov't, and taxes paid on it, do you? And i seem to recall a post of yours where you said the court fines were somewhere in the order of $150 or so, so the financial burden of this is hardly devastating. And again, I'm not hating. No one wants to see a 50 y/o women in handcuffs. I'm sure she was upset. I'm sure you were upset for her. But she knew what she was doing when she opened that shop long before you ever met her. For those of us not quite so deeply involved as you, the words of that immortal icon of American justice still ring in our ears. "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time".
    As to the 500 hours vs 1,000 hours, here's another link to the NYSED website that says 500: http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/mt/article155.htm But I guess we can leave it to NY to sort it out. It really doesn't matter. No one here is going for a license any time soon.
