Re: Defender Outdoor Claysports Ranch

Guess they missed the railroad tracks that run right through that area when they bought? That's always the risk of buying on the outskirts and/or near undeveloped areas. You may not like your neighbors if/when the land gets developed. I'm all for more Sporting Clays courses. I enjoy Trap and Skeet, ...

Re: Glock Guy's and Girls what do you think?

https://www.impactguns.com/data/default/images/catalog/535/764503913495.jpg Yeah, I'm being lazy and didn't want to go look at mine. That's a pretty small pin. I don't see it having that much leverage or there being enough strength when reholstered to pull the trigger enough to discharge. Plus, how...

Re: Purchased a gun for a friend

That is the correct way to handle it. The ATF can consider you buying a gun for someone else, even though they are qualified, as a "straw purchase". Realistically, they probably won't, but you should not risk it. When you fill out the 4473 you are signing that you are buying the gun for yourself. A...

Re: Purchased a gun for a friend

First, do not pay for it under your name. Second, Contact the seller and provide the name of the real buyer. Explain what happened. Seller will send the pistol to FFL of the real buyer Let your friend do the paper work and pick the pistol from his FFL. In Short do not do the transaction yourself. Y...

Re: Luminaries on trigger control

For anyone who’s never heard of him, Bruce Gray might be one of the most insightful folks you’ll find on the topic of trigger control. From his passion for dry firing, to his belief in “pressing” the trigger, to his insistence on practicing the bump drill he’s very knowledgeable on the topic. If you...

Re: Johnson City

I’m with Puma Guy, Fredericksburg has much more to offer in the way of food and accommodations. Plus it’s an easy drive between the two. The Holiday Inn Express is relatively new and well kept. If you’re without kids the Hanger Hotel out at the airport is a great vintage experience. As for food the ...

Re: First full day of carrying

I'm not sure if it's "purpose built" but I bought a 5.11 "operator" belt. It's 1.75in wide and stiffer than.... Well it's pretty damn sturdy. I wore it just regular for a week before my license got here, and it has held up pretty good so far with my single clip holster, should do even better with m...

Re: Is the HK P30 as robust as the USP?

While I’ve never owned a USP, I’ve shot them extensively, my best friend has a 9 and a 45 that he uses as his suppressor hosts. That said he (and I) both carry P30s (or P30sks) daily. I have a full size in both 9 and 40. While the USPs are definitely robust, it’s partly because they have the ergonom...

Re: First full day of carrying

Congrats. As you note a slight print may seems blatantly obvious to you, but 99.9% of folks will never notice. As for the new clothes comment, have you gotten yourself a good purpose built gun belt? That makes all the difference in the world. Before you know it it’ll be a part of your daily routine ...

Re: Are there plans for Forum members to meet up at the NRA meeting Friday?

Spent the whole day today (0930-1700) at the show with a buddy, ran into SIA, Flightmare and others a few times. Had a blast, really enjoyed the B&T booth, met Mike Pappas (basically the father of a lot of modern day suppressors), and had Rob Leatham sit down at our table at lunch to grab a bite wit...

Re: So THIS happened today...

Yep, shoot enough steel and you’ll get some splatter. The 10 yard rule is a good one to follow, but doesn’t guarantee safety. As you note, always wearing eyes is really the key.

Having lived in Wyoming for a number of years I can say that true violent crime is pretty rare. More often than not the list of usual crimes revolves around drugs and petty theft, etc.

Re: Recommend Light/Laser or Just Light?

A light I'm very interested to check out is the new Microstream USB Pocket Light. I carry the standard Microstream, runs on a single AAA, and kicks out a whopping 28 lumens. The new USB version is of course rechargeable, but puts out 250 lumen in the same form factor as the standard Microstream. ht...
