Re: RV, camper van, site trailer, and work truck carry considerations

Re: Semiauto "Mouse" guns always out of stock

Low demand and low margins. Why waste floor plan dollars and display space? I can see that being an issue for 25 and 32 ACP which are less effective and more expensive than the popular 380 ACP, but one would think 22 LR would still have an appeal being so cheap and fun to shoot.

Re: Advice from seasoned travelers

You will need to put your iPad in a separate bin when you go through x-ray. I also have to take my boots off even in the pre-check if I am wearing the ones with the metal shanks inside the sole.

Re: Acquittal in Bundy Ranch Prosecutions

OK They got a mistrial. Charges were dismissed "with prejudice". Not a mistrial... Cannot be retried unless there is a new crime alleged. Then why has a new trial date been set? https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/01/08/cliven-bundy-ranch-case-dismissed/1013685001/ U.S. Di...

Re: Are Ammo Prices Ready To Drop?

I was in Academy the other day thinking about how less than $10.00 a box for Monarch 9mm was about standard. That was not all that long ago. I know one thing, I picked a bad time to get a .45 pistol. And compared to other ammo, $.07 - .08 a round for CCI Mini-Mags is still cheaper than $0.19 + for ...
