Re: First Time to Travel with a Checked Handgun

True, TSA is different at every airport, and even different between who the shift manager is. 1.5 hours seems entirely inappropriate and a complaint about the process may open some eyes that policy is not being followed correctly. A hand search of the entire bag when checking a firearm is not the pr...

Re: Two Way Radios For Our Church

I can't see how those cs100 radios are "no license required" unless they are simply programmed to GMRS frequencies and set to minimum power. If you DO have an fcc license for 1 or 3 channels hen that same license would be good for any replacement radios on the same frequencies. The radios ...

Re: A little Monday afternoon entertainment for you.

I always enjoy seeing Ted in an interview. He tells it like it is. I met the man once and he is exactly like he is on tv or on a stage. I went up to him and said I just wanna shake your hand, sir. He told me "brotha, sit down and chat with me a while!" Had a good 20 minute conversation wit...

I just got on their mailing list and they seem to have good prices. Flat fee shipping and free on large ammo orders. It's in Abilene but they do NOT have a storefront. I asked about local pickup and they said nope!

Re: Home Security Cameras.

I have both systems running concurrently. An older wired system with a dvr locked inside the air conditioning closet. It's not easy access and I Feel fairly sure it wouldn't be found by a thief. I also have an Arlo wireless system that duplicates the wired system and gives me mobile access and far s...

Re: Lost Handgun...

I lost a revolver in a car crash 4 years ago. It was months before I woke up and discovered DPS only returned one pistol and not the other. I spoke with the trooper and he had a sheriff's deputy file an incident report on the missing gun with S# and description so I have covered myself if it turns u...

Re: Dash Cam

Yes, I too ordered a $20 dash cam from Amazon over a year ago. 1080p, all the bells & whistles and swivels on the suction cup mount. Previously I'd bought a $14 model. It was ok, but difficult to operate and not near the video quality. I surmise that $20-30 is the quality point. Anything cheaper...

Re: Dilemma - Car breaks down on way to work

Personally, I'd tell the boss the truth and let him decide if he wants you to be late, not come in at all, or give authorization to bring it in. Maybe lock it in a locker or desk drawer or even let the boss lock it up. I've had a very similar scenario in the past. My boss was 110% by the book compan...

Re: Ham roll call?

KA5YBX here. Licensed in 1985. Kinda slacked off on it in recent years but now I'm retired and have the time. However, now I'm nearly deaf so I'm going to concentrate on Digital modes. Packet has changed immensely since the 80's so I'm having to relearn the stuff. Been a Tech all this time but I thi...

Re: I just had a reality check

I too have had reality checks, only they weren't dreams. Take from it what you will. I lean towards preferring a heavier, faster round but I still carry a .380 several days a week. Better to carry something than nothing at all, I say. Several years ago I was in a huge, multi-agency manhunt. At least...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

I just retired from AA and I fly with a checked firearm every couple of weeks. Yes there are rules but nobody seems to know them. Tsa has agreed that "tsa locks" are ok for firearms and you are not " giving them the key or combo for it." That's what I use and it's best. They rare...

Re: Why do you choose OWB or IWB or Shoulder?

After 20 years of IWB, I find that retirement has shifted me to OWB 95% of the time, with pocket carry making up the rest. Wearing untucked shirts and cargo shorts has a lot to do with it.

Re: Every day hearing protection

I wear "behind the ear" hearing aids with hard acrylic ear molds. The ear molds do not pass through outside sound. In fact, at the range I just turn off the aids and presto! Top-quality hearing protection. I have hearing loss but I still "feel" every noise. Loud noises are just a...

Re: Tell us your opinions and experiences

I'm sure I'll have more to add to this soon since I am currently helping a girlfriend to find an EDC. My trouble is I'm a bit lumpy and my idea of concealable is different than what is concealable on her very thin frame with close-fitting attire. I've stressed the #1 thing is to get a gun that she w...
