Re: E-mail to a 30.06 posted business

I used my LTC as a my second form of ID when I bought my wife's car. Never actually said that I was carrying but the finance guy made a point of saying that another finance guy saw someones pistol when their shirt rode up, but that they also used a CHL as their secondary ID. He said he told the othe...

Re: Mossberg Shockwave

By the (lack of) definition for a rifle and shotgun in Texas, there could be other firearms which could be illegal by the same means as a shockwave. An ar pistol is a pistol by federal definition, is there a definition in Texas law for a pistol? Could an especially aggressive DA prosecute for posses...

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

Maybe I missed it in the legal jargon, does 1911 modify TABC blue signs? If not while unlicensed carry will be legal there will be many locations which have to do nothing different than they do now to bar it.

Re: Anyone weighed their guns recently?

I have no idea how heavy my AR is but the answer is very. 16" bull barrel plus a 3x9-40 scope gets it way up there way fast without anything else on it. As TAM was saying about the mags/ammo, my XDm 40 pretty much doubles in weight from empty to actual carry setup when you account for the 17 ro...

Re: So....Does anyone still shoot .40 ????

I shoot and carry my 40, it isn't my EDC due to size and at work I don't really feel like I will need the capacity. I shoot the 40 better than anything I have ever shot. My 45 almost never leaves the safe, don't own a 9, and my 380 is just a pocket gun with the (lack of) accuracy that entails. I lik...

Re: Please Recommend Eye Protection

Whatever you do try them on first before you buy. I was looking to replace my Oakleys and was looking at some Costa del Mar, I went and tried on several pairs and didn't like any of them. They were all very uncomfortable to me despite being ~200$ glasses. I shoot in either my Oakleys or another pair...

Re: How do I fry fish?

I use the Louisiana crispy batter, add a little cayenne to the batter, and put on some Tony's on the fish before I batter it. Personally I prefer the fish to be cut into bite size pieces before I fry it, it gets crispier that way. I do a lot of it on the stove and it works fine, also found that I ca...

Re: Colt 1911, 1913 production

When clearing it when I got to check it out, it is still very tight, feels pretty much like my much more modern rock island. It does need some cleaning though, felt some grit in the trigger when I pulled it to lower the hammer after clearing.

Re: Colt 1911, 1913 production

Just thought I'd share where it might be appreciated, my wife's father recently cane into possession of this colt 1911 that by serial number was produced in 1913. Not really sure what it would be worth, but it's still a nice gun that is in decent shape. He has shot it done and said it all works lik...

Re: At What Price Point For A Used Gun Do You Say No Thanks?

14 years ago, I purchased a new Taurus .38 All-titanium 850CIA hammerless with ported barrel for $369.95, and sold it to a DEALER for $325 last year; he sold it in two days. So, if it's no longer available new, it's worth more. Speaking of no longer available, I still have a pristine 12 ga. Winches...

When I go to California in May, I'll be bringing along my G26, and either my Mossberg 590A1 or my Marlin 336. I'll be towing a travel trailer, and plan on possibly overnighting at unimproved camping sites on the way. My wife will bring her G43. Just curious but I always thought you could not bring ...

Re: AR-15 Ammunition And Barrel Twist Rate

I use .223 winchester powermax bonded 64 grain HPs to deer hunt through my AR15. I usually shoot around 1 MOA with it through a 1:9 stainless bull barrel. Would another twist rate be more accurate? Possibly, but it shoots plenty well for deer out to 250.

Re: Calexit

Well, the picture is mocking California for its restrictive gun laws, saying that if it were to raise some sort of army that it would be armed with Nerf. Oregon has its problems, but terrible gun laws really aren't one of them. I'm definitely not a license plate aficionado, on a blurred or plate I ...

Re: Ammo question

You can use a 357 sig barrel in a 40 or vice versa, as long as they are a proper fit for the gun. Both won't work from the same barrel though. 357 sig is basically a 40 necked down to a 9mm.
