Re: Minnesota LTCer Shoots Motorist After Car Accident

There's a (very) little bit more information here: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/minn-teen-killed-daring-armed-man-shoot-crash-article-1.3759085 One thing that tells me there might be more to the situation: The slain teen’s passenger claims he watched his pal, Muhammed Rahim, 17, confron...

Re: Minnesota LTCer Shoots Motorist After Car Accident

A punch doesn't need to be thrown to justify acting in self defense. However from the pictures, I don't see a disparity of force argument working. And simply daring someone to shoot doesn't justify shooting. It will be interesting to see how this works out. The passenger was close enough to hear wh...

Re: Beltman 1.5" Brown, Dbl stitched with IT

It's not tool large, it's too small with iwb holsters and gear... and I don't do OWB. (I could wear it but I'm out to the end holes)I'm a 38ish pant... but don't go by that- measure yours this way, from Beltman's site: I have no idea why but there seems to be 2 ways to measure a belt.

Debate this all you want, the 30.06 & 30.07 signs or written on a card in the exact language given or oral notification to that person stating that that firearms or not allowed are the only notifications I teach and am concerned with. That is what the law says and that is what I was told when I...

Re: TX: Houston couple tied up and murdered by robbers

People like these three makes it kinda' hard for me to embrace the BLM movement. I'm sure we will see the leaders of the BLM movement holding rallies to denounce this type of senseless violence. Maybe they will get Houston's own esteemed congresswoman SJL to take the lead. They are probably just wa...

And my wife still asks me why I need to have a gun on my hip at home, in our un-gated community. I think I will send her this article.

Re: Drones Good or Bad

Probably, if you were alert and continuously watching for it; you'd have maybe half a second to spot, aim and fire before it killed you, not to mention a swarm of them. But still, seems like targets (e.g. enemy troops) could easily confuse it with esoteric uniforms, face paint, or even masks. If th...

Re: Drones Good or Bad

Imagine having a few of these attached to all of the facial recognition cameras that are everywhere.. See the bad guy.. BOOM.... Could even be modified to inject a knock out drug instead... The problem then becomes who gets to determine the "bad guys" from the "good guys". I, fo...

Re: Kahr P9

I had a friend that showed me his last April. I fell in love with it, and had to have one. I came home, did some research, one website rabbit hole led to another, and I ended up fondling and buying at M&P Shield Performance Center .40. That being said, I still will end up with that Kahr at some...

Very scary video. Something like this in the wrong hands (like any government) would be extremely dangerous.

Call it what you will - it's stil gambling. I'm not an anti-gambling kinda guy. I'm invested in a number of things, and yep, I could lose my shirt. Or, make good money. Not great money, my investments are conservative. One thing though, bandwagon investing isn't for me... IMHO, the term "gambl...

Re: Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

I don't currently embrace this technology, but I could see a situation where it could be (slowly) implemented safely. Here in Houston, I live out on the west side of town. Right down the middle of I-10, we have the four managed lanes of traffic. If you enter those, you'll either be paying a toll or...

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. But then again, onl...
