Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

Does anyone have the current link to send your gun in under this settlement? The period to elect a cash payout has expired, but per a discussion I just had with Taurus customer service, the extended service warranty / replacement option is still open. Unfortunately, she was unable to give me a link ...

Re: IL: Dems push bill rewarding schools that replace armed officers with therapists

Why only schools?

If this is such a great idea, then all Illinois police should also be replaced with licensed therapists. The dem leaders in that state could start by replacing their personal security details with therapists. That would undoubtedly make the entire state safer.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Does anyone else see the irony here? People (rightly) saying that we should vote for Republicans, including Cruz, even if we don't like them all that much, after Cruz refused to fully endorse Trump at the Republican convention. Getting back to Robert O'Rourke. He is a white man of Irish descent who...

Re: WILSON COMBAT INTRODUCES THE “HARDEST HITTING AR CARBINE EVER PRODUCED”

And a target for such a rifle would be: ?... as it doesn't like fun or inexpensive to shoot. Those who have a lot of money and want to have the biggest and baddest thing around. Same target market as manufacturers like Ferarri, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, and Wilson Combat (the rest of their products). O...

Re: I have a really dumb question

Yes, the outer dimensions of the slide and frame are the *same... so all your holsters of appropriate length should work. That's the short answer. I'd bet that DW are standard but you could verify that with a call to your favorite holster maker. *There are some minor variation in brands and parts l...

I have a really dumb question

I am a 1911 fan. Currently have 5 of them, and have owned and sold about 10 more. All have been in 45 ACP. I have holsters, and mag holders for my 1911's that I really like. I am thinking about getting a 1911 in 9mm. Probably a CCO type model (looking at the DW Valkyrie). Here's the question, are th...

Re: Benbrook PD Called for Gun Tshirt in Park

I've had gay men make passes at me twice in my life. I was always flattered, even though I have no interest. My wife also gets interest from women on occasion. She is like me and is flattered, but uninterested. Neither of us have even been offended by this. Now what exactly does this have to do with...

Re: Dick's Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms after Parkland shooting

I am a simple man and not an economist but let me see if I understand this correctly. This Dick company owns some AR15s. They are opposed to people having the right to own them and wants them unavailable. The Destroy all their stock of these weapons of mass destruction. These weapons are paid for e...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

While I firmly believe that Cruz will beat Beto, my neighborhood already has 3 or 4 Beto signs (the usual suspects). The campaign has already started. We need to have a massive conservative turn-out to totally bury this guy. Remember, we may not fully agree with a particular candidate, but we KNOW ...

Re: WTS - Dan Wesson ECO - DFW

I have too many guns and not enough money, or I'd be all over this.

I do like those grips though. Are you willing to sell them separately and then put the stock grips back on the ECO for sale of the gun?

Re: TX: Houston-former 911 operator convicted of hanging up calls

Ten days is ridiculous. She needs to be spending ten + years in prison. Hopefully she will at least have her paycheck from her next jobs garnished to pay legal settlements for anyone who was harmed by her ruthless disregard for those she was charged with protecting.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

He won’t get my vote. But the Republicans need to get a big turn out everywhere. They don’t diserve it. But we need to turn out none the less. This x 1000 (though I don't count Cruz in the group of undeserving Republicans). With a couple of exceptions that prove the rule, the GOP establishment has ...

Re: Is the .40 dead?

I think .40 cal is probably in 4th place for semi-auto handgun calibers by gun sales, behind 9mm, .380, and .45. It would be interesting if someone could dig up some stats on this. I don't see this changing anytime soon. Is it dead? Define dead. If dead means that you can't find any .40 cal guns or ...

Re: Dick's Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms after Parkland shooting

Destroying the weapons is all about the publicity. They could have quietly donated them to law enforcement and even if they didn't consider that an option they could have quietly destroyed them. Instead they make a big deal out of it to garner some additional publicity now that the initial fanfare ...
