Re: Say Hello...

Have you replaced the sights? I'm going to install Dawson Precision sights. Until I get that done, I've blackened out the rear white dots and painted the front dot red. I've found that to be an acceptable improvement for now. The Dawson Precision sights have a more narrow front blade with colored f...

Re: Active or Passive Retention Holster

Just wondering what yall use for your daily iwb/owb carry and retention level active or passive? Active. I carry my S&W M&P Mod 2.0 9mm 5inch FDE openly, outside the waistband, in a Safariland 7TS ALS holster. I use the Safariland Quick Lock System so that I can easily take the holstered pi...

Re: Say Hello...

The gun ran great yesterday, better than me if you get my drift :lol:: It's really great on the recoil and control aspect. I think the trigger is great as well, others may beg to differ. It's a night and day difference from the Taurus that I upgraded from. An Apex may be in its future, but not for ...

The last three times I have been to the capitol since 1/1/2016, I have carried openly.

My S&W M&P Mod 2.0 9mm 5 inch looks a little different in different lighting. This picture shows my Smith with the BTA90 it replaced as my EDC.

Re: Say Hello...

Good choice, TexasJohnBoy! When you start looking for a holster, your pistol is almost identical to the M&P 9L. Here is a picture of my M&P Mod 2.0 in a Safariland ALS 7378 for the M&P 9L without thumb safety. That is what you have to enter into Safariland's holster finder to get it to s...

MechAg94 said: I recall they said they would not allow open carry, but I have never see one posted with 30.07. Have there been any reports of people asked to leave? I generally only conceal carry so it doesn't come up. MechAg94, in answer to your question: Whataburger 1108, Hwy 298 & FM 973. Sp...

Re: Thoughts on [Pre-paid legal service]

If you dig around here with the search function, there were other discussions that pointed to outside sources that did pretty good comparisons between the different companies/organizations. Read carefully as to just what is being offered. Some of the differences are mind boggling. Pre-arranging leg...

My wife prefers using a speed loader for her Ruger LCR .38. Works for her.

I prefer my 17+1 S&W M&P Mod 2.0 9mm. ;-)

Re: What’s with the gun community

I have never understood why the gun community can be so judge mental on what firearm an individual chooses to carry. I understand we have freedom of speech (praise the Lord) and can give our opinions but, does it really matter what someone else carries? I was always told to carry the gun that you a...

Re: I got busted today...

I don't think it is fair to say that this group promotes "concealed carry". I think we promote legal carry in general, but don't specifically promote either concealed or open carry. Certain members of this forum advocate more strongly for one vs the other, but "as a group" I thi...
