Barrel length, ammo, and choke for HD Shotguns

Interesting (I think) pair of articles on choosing shotgun characteristics and -- to a degree -- ammo for home defense shotguns: Does Barrel Length Matter for a Home-Defense Shotgun? Shooting Illustrated takes a Mossberg 590A1 (18.5" barrel), a Mossberg Shockwave (14") and a Mossberg AOW (...

Re: Officials Attempt to Circumvent Indiana Carry Law

It's no big deal because they're just following orders? :banghead: I understand Mr. Freeman is an attorney and has to go to that courthouse for business, but I'm free to be frank about armed men sent to intimidate someone and refusing to say who sent them. Freeman knew that was nonsense, so asked t...

Re: Officials Attempt to Circumvent Indiana Carry Law

Mr. Freeman's own comment on the deputies who questioned him:

(In no way do I blame or hold the Sheriff's deputies for any wrongdoing. They are retired cops, brave and honorable men doing a retirement gig and I hold them not at fault for any issue here).

Re: Nesbitt (Morris) v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers!

I got a polite email back from William Perry Pendley, who runs MSLF (and for all I know IS MSLF) and he basically said negotiations on the new policy are...

Re: Officials Attempt to Circumvent Indiana Carry Law

Apparently, Indiana law permits carrying in government buildings unless the building contains a courtroom. Lafayette, Indiana, lawyer Kirk Freeman is in the news because he looked into whether he was being told the truth. Officials claimed there was a courtroom in the basement of a new building acr...

I am just trying to get this straight in my mind. Am I correct in thinking I can carry a knife over 5.5 in. long in a church or hospital as long there is no 06/07 sign posted (after 9/1/17) or am I misreading something. I don't carry a knife short or long but I'm just trying to get this straight. N...
