Re: What would you reach for, handgun or shotgun?

Wow, those are some aspects I had not thought about. Our house is only 1200 sq ft but we're getting ready to add on about 500 sq ft. No kids and we just had to put down our corgi yesterday :-( Maybe the best of both worlds would be a short barrel rifle in a pistol caliber? Sorry to hear about your ...

Re: WTB Budget AR 15

If the price differential isn't huge and you don't love working on guns, I would encourage you to get one that is fully assembled. I have assembled close to 10 lowers, and I am not super handy, so it can be done. But on the first couple, there were several times that I was cursing myself for taking ...

Re: WTB Budget AR 15

I don't think it is a long shot given where AR prices are at the moment. New complete budget AR's can be had for as low as $429 + FFL fees https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/2084_36_1989/products_id/81936/Del-Ton+DT+Sport+.223+Remington%2F5.56+NATO or possibly less if you sho...

Re: Do you carry "Murder Insurance"? Leftists attack carry policies

"The reason I call it murder insurance is because if you look at the way this is marketed, it's really sold in the context of 'There's a threat around every corner, dear mostly-white NRA member,' and that threat is either a black man or a brown man or some other kind of person of color," ...

Re: Older Sig P226 with nickel slide

The Sig P226 is a very interesting, and IMHO, underappreciated gun. I have the MK25 model, and traded a standard model a few months ago. The gun rivals my 1911's for accuracy and is extremely reliable. The only negatives are the long trigger reset (fixable for $45 or so), and the large size. Too big...

That looks good. Except that bottle looks a lot like a can.

Re: American Shooting Center

That's good to hear. I drove by there shortly after the hurricane and they were under water (as in, there was a lake between the road and the shooting bays). Sucks about the pro shop though.

Re: Cannot Be Recovered By Any Other Means

Not a clarifying point regarding the law but seems relevant... My LTC instructor made the point that even with the law on your side you could easily be looking at $10-15K (or more) in legal fees if you shoot someone (maybe not, but not an unlikely possibility). And so if you assume that cost, it’s ...

Re: Beer

I don't drink much these days, but when I drink beer it's typically a craft beer of the porter/stout variety. The Left Handed Nitro Milk Stout is a favorite, as are the offerings from Deschutes, such as their Black Butte Porter. On the rare occasions I want to drink a lot of beer (did I say this wa...

Re: Zoning and the Second Amendment

I thought the left wanted to get rid of the "gun show loophole" by having people buy all their guns through licensed dealers. Sounds like the good folks in Alameda county now will need to rely solely on private sales instead.

Re: Really Ticked Off

I’m sorry but you shouldn’t get your LTC if you assaulted your wife. I don’t care how mad someone gets. If you lay a hand on your wife you wouldn’t be worth my time in a court room. Its really easy to point a finger at someone without being in their shoes huh? I've never hit a woman and I'm against...

Re: Traffic Violation

Here's another thought: don't speed, don't weave, don't run red lights and drive safely obeying traffic laws and you shouldn't have to worry about traffic violation stops. :iagree: and I'll include a few others: Don't drive in the left lane. If no one is in front of you, get over. Don't wait til so...

Re: Brownsville: The Great Fajita Caper

The first rule of committing fraud or theft from your employer is "don't take time off". In fact, that is one of the red flags auditors look for when identifying control weaknesses / potential fraud. Anyone with access to cash or inventory who never takes vacation or sick days. Looks like ...

Re: Police in Denison said a restaurant employee refused to serve two Denison officers early Saturday morning.

Isn't anyone curious why the boyfriend was arrested? No, but I am hoping that this employee never finds herself pulled over for speeding or anything else. I'm sure the local LEO's will be completely and totally professional. But I'm willing to bet that she doesn't end up with a verbal warning, eith...

Re: Mossberg Shockwave

I put a Picatinny rail on the top of the Shockwave and then just mounted the TLR-2S to the rail. It's "upside down" but that only means you need to reverse the adjustments when sighting in the laser. Mine was close enough at 25 yards that I didn't bother making any adjustments. Red or gre...
