Re: Minimum Caliber for Handgun Proficiency Exam

Not that I would expect it to happen often, but since there is no caliber restriction, could one use an AR pistol with a brace, and then since the atf has decided it's ok, shoulder it? I would allow it. But remember, you are not allowed to use optics, red dots, lasers, etc. Only open sights. Yeah I...

Re: Ruger LCP Loaded Carry

If it's the old style LCP and not the new LCP 2 the trigger pull is so heavy you don't have to worry about it. All the LCP models are double action only so they are decocked as much as say a Beretta 92 with the hammer down. I carry mine almost every day with the full 6+1 load in my back pocket in a ...

Re: How do you train at the range?

I saw a drill for trigger control that I plan on trying next time I go shooting, take 1 shot in a clean are of a target with both hands then take 1 shot with strong and 1 with your off hands. The goal being to have the 3 shots touching to make a cloverleaf on the target. Another good practice drill ...

Re: Length of time for the chambered round

Finally shot up my carry ammo today just for the heck of it, had the same round chambered for probably 8 or more months due to lack of time to shoot, and when I do the 380 is way down the list of what I want to shoot. The rounds themselves have been carried for 3 years, sometimes in the primary mag ...

Re: 10mm pistol hunting

I have seen on multiple occasions hard cast and FMJ bullets fired from handguns outpenetrate jacketed soft points fired from rifles. http://www.handloads.com/misc/linebaugh.penetration.tests.asp In this one link if you look at the cartridges detailed in the table, there are many many handgun cartri...

Re: 10mm pistol hunting

The Hornady 180 Grain XTP, factory or handloaded, is a stomper in the 10mm. A 180 XTP at around 1200 fps should exit any Whitetail, lots of gel tests on YouTube. If more penetration is needed, use coated hard cast 200s or 220s. The coated hard cast minimize leading with polygonal rifling and compen...

Re: Revolver vs semiauto effective barrel lengths

I don't have the necessary guns to test it but a s&w governor that was loaded with 45 acp could be tested against another 45 with roughly the same length barrel through a crono, same would go for a 9mm revolver vs a semi.

Re: How Far Would You Go To Help?

Obviously the video gives limited information on the situation, however I would believe the person being attacked was in danger of taking a fatal blow in that situation. That would justify using force possible deadly force. From the positions they were in in the video i feel like I would be on the f...

Re: How Far Would You Go To Help?

What kept creeping into my mind was that calling 911 from the train would most likely draw them to you !! And then I had to admit to myself that I normally do not carry enough ammo to take on a crowd ... if the first few shots don't scare them away. For a few years, I rode Dart to work... I am glad...

Re: Length of time for the chambered round

If I'm re-chambering the same round that I pulled before I usually lock the slide back, drop the round in the pipe then release the slide. Just have to remember to pull it back slightly to make sure the extractor caught correctly. Then there should be no set back even if it were going to happen, no...

Re: Ground Speed please

I read an article containing another story from the same pilot talking about the slowest he had ever flown a SR71, it was about as good of a story as this one or any other about high speed, I wish I would have bookmarked it. If I ever find it again I'll try to remember to post a link. http://foxtrot...

Re: Mexico: tourist drinks spiked at resorts. Many die but stories covered up

I won't say they aren't drugging people or using bad alcohol, but at least the teenage girl who died and her brother who both passed out in a pool at the same time had, according to the version of the story I read, had only been at the resort a couple of hours and had taken 5 or 6 shots of tequila. ...
