Re: Pass through shots/ liability

Sometimes I wonder about marketing ideas. Names shouldn't matter, but I still wonder. A jury shouldn't care whether a manufacturer names a type of ammo "Humble Petition to Kindly RSVP Your Plans to Leave Me in Peace" or "Flesh Rending Zombie Death." But what if Shannon Watts is ...

Re: Mental Tips for Stiff Trigger?

I have never shot Smith and Wesson striker guns well. The trigger with the center hinge always caused me to shoot poorly, if I were to buy one I'd probably change the trigger for a glock/xd style with a safety bar instead of the hinge. I shot 2 mags with my SD40 and promptly ordered an Apex trigger...

Re: Question about a rear pocket holster.

I watched a video about a rear pocket holster a few years ago and I now have the means to get it and a new gun to go with it but now I can't seam to find it. With as many holster as you all may have had and seen I was hoping that you might know of the brand of holster. It is for sub compacts like t...

Re: Pistol sights

I never meant to imply that the way I have my off hand's index finger was the correct or only way. Its just that when I have it wrapped around the front I do something goofy such as flinch or pull the gun to the side or something. It took me several months to figure it out. I'm still working on bei...

Re: Pistol sights

I am left handed and had the problem of shooting about 2 inches low and to the right at the distance of 7 1/2 yards which is the left handed equivalent to what you are doing. When I realized I was putting my index finger of the non trigger hand in front of the trigger guard rather than under it and...

Re: Best Carry Position While Driving

I leave mine in the wallet holster but move it under my left leg, I can draw from easily from that position then once I'm out of the city where i won't need to be stopping anymore I put it under the edge of the folded center seat/console. SA is king and if I'm in my truck I will just drive off if at...

Re: Work VS Free time

I carry my LCP at work and when I'm working around the house because it's very unobtrusive. If I'm going somewhere that will have a crowd I swap it out for my XDm 4.5 40.

Re: Mossberg Shockwave

One of the things that keeps this from being classed as AOW is the over 26" length. However one of the things that makes a firearm AOW is a smooth bore and concealable. So by that definition if you concealed it in a backpack it might become an AOW and require a tax stamp, I read an ATF opinion ...

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...
