Re: Clean and lube polymer weapons

What are you using to clean and lube your polymer based firearms? I've been using Hopps 9 products, but also have some Slip2000 clean/lube products too. Been reading good things about M-Pro 7 line of clean/lube products. What do you use for cloths while cleaning and for wiping down your weapons aft...

Re: Ever Used Glow-On Paint To Brighten Iron Sights?

My S&W M&P came with those poor three-white-dot sights. I painted the rear white dots black, and the front white dot red. That worked and gave me time to find the sights I wanted. Dawson Precision https://dawsonprecision.com/dawson-precision-s-w-m-p-fixed-charger-sight-set-black-rear-fiber-o...

Re: Texas Military Forces Directive on Personally Owned Firearms

Wow! I seem to remember a State ad slogan, something about "Texas friendly." Sounds like a prime example. There is a museum I've been wanting to visit at Camp Mabry in Austin, but I haven't been too keen on disarming. No special reason, other than I really don't like messing with my pisto...

Re: What's Your Preferred Grain in 9mm for range and s.d.?

I'll start at 115/124/147 for either range or S.D. . Heck, there's even some out there made by Federal in 150 JHP, but they're pretty exotic and painfully expensive. 124 grain for both. I like to keep training and every day as close to the same as possible. By using the same weight bullets for both...

Re: What knife do you carry?

A more interesting question is how do you train to defend yourself with the edge weapon you EDC? A valid point, which I am too old, sore, fat, and out of shape to contemplate. My back and bunions hurt. :lol: If attacked, I’m just going to have to shoot them and be done with it. As the Private said ...

Once again, unarmed does not equate to harmless

John Daub (Hshoi) https://blog.hsoi.com/2018/01/06/once-again-unarmed-does-not-equate-to-harmless/ Just because someone is “unarmed” does not mean they are not dangerous. An unarmed person can certainly inflict fatal damage upon another. I wish people would stop believing in the fallacy that an unar...

Re: Renewal frustration...

Why does the renewal process get 60 days? They shouldn't have to do a full background check, and they already have the fingerprints. In the year 2018 this process should be easily automated.
