Re: Active Shooter reported at Santa Fe High School

Things sure have changed. As a kid I grew up in the early sixties. The boys on the block would play baseball, football, board games, then we would "play war." We loved shooting one another with our toy guns and stabbing one another with our rubber knives. Nobody thought anything about it. ...

Re: Active Shooter reported at Santa Fe High School

I cannot find any reporting whether the "school resource officer(s)" were armed or unarmed. I assume all of this will come out in the ensuing hours/days.

Re: Oliver North to speak at 30.06ed Church

Well, Col. North did support an Assault Weapons Ban on Larry King Live, January 26, 1994. Wonder if his comments made then, “Anyone who wants to possess such a weapon (“assault weapon”) should join the Marine Corps.” came up during the NRA Board Meeting? After my initial good feeling about his sele...

Re: Protectant for Parkerized Finish?

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I applied two or three Hoppe's Gun Oil Field Wipes to the barrel and receiver and that did the job! At first the finish was like sandpaper and resisted the oil but after repeated passes the oil finally "overcame" the finish and it looks great!

Protectant for Parkerized Finish?

Picked up my new Mossberg 590A1 shotgun yesterday! An awesome shotgun! http://www.mossberg.com/product/590a1-9-shot-51663/ This is my first firearm with a Parkerized finish. I pulled out a Rem-oil wipe to wipe the barrel down but the wipe hardly fazed it. Maybe the wipe was getting dry from sitting ...

Hoppe's Elite To Clean Gun-Cleaning Brushes

While cleaning my Glock 26 today I noticed my nylon gun-cleaning brush was getting pretty dirty with the usual carbon build-up. I sprayed some Hoppe's Elite on the brush, rubbed it around with a cloth patch and was amazed. The brush looked almost brand new! Don't throw away those old, dirty brushes!

Re: That thing that never happens...it happened again

Nice to see the police themselves release a statement containing sufficient detail that we can see what happened. Usually the police release no statement or a very general statement with the usual "matter under investigation" and/or the story is picked up by the press who provide scant det...

Re: Wow! Incredible---Ruger's Shareholder Proposal Passes

The shareholder proposal which passed---the requirement for a report---is itself ridiculous. From the article: Now, Ruger must produce a report by February that addresses how it tracks violence associated with its firearms, what kind of research it is conducting related to so-called smart gun techno...

Re: Shooting at Twin Peaks in Waco

"Affirmative links" or other evidence make or break a case. Wonder why these cases were indicted to begin with if those were missing?...

Re: Balistol vs Hoppes

I have used both and here is my take: Hoppe's No. 9 solvent is a far better cleaner than Ballistol. You can experiment with both to confirm that or maybe you will get a different result than I have. Always fun to experiment and compare. Hoppe's No. 9 bore cleaner or solvent is not a lubricant or pro...

Re: The "I am a marine not a soldier"

Read all you can about WW2. I read several books on The Battle of The Bulge. We lost approximately 75,000 men killed,wounded, or missing in action. Sadly, newer generations know little about what our brave men and women suffered during that War.

Texas has far better sentencing procedures--usually right after the guilt stage or the next day.
