Re: Ever Shoot with No Ear Protection for Training?

The sound difference between 5.56 and 5.56 blanks is interesting. Blanks are so quiet you don't even need ear pro. I thought this principle held true for every caliber of blanks. It does not. Once, when I was training with my M2 .50 cal, they gave us blanks for some reason, and this big, weird BFA (...

Same here.

I have no idea who Ru Paul is. Don't tell me, I'm pretty sure I don't want to know.

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

There are some good answers here. Definitely talk to a lawyer about the legalities of allowing managers, etc to carry sans-LTC.

Out of curiosity, what kind of business do you own?

Re: TX:Gun handler kills brother after midnight in Houston

I have actually heard of accidental discharges where the round does not get ejected all the way and the extractor strikes the primer as the slide moves forward. Can't imagine that could happen without destroying the barrel, but it's theoretically possible.

Re: Tool box for an 11 year old.

I've received tools of one sort or another since I was about 9. I'm sure you're smart enough to know what should go in a toolbox, but here's some insight from the experience of a dumb 11 year old boy on what probably shouldn't go in a toolbox: + Don't get power tools yet. He won't appreciate or unde...

Re: In Houston: can someone convert a portion of their garage as a PRIVATE indoor shooting lane?

Since discharging on a shooting range is one of the few defenses against unlawful discharge of firearms, definitely look up what classifies a property as a shooting range. What kind of safety measures must be in place, what kind of noise reduction must exist, what kind of backstop needs to be presen...

YES

Deci- means ten. Decimate means reduce by one tenth. Common usage has altered the definition in the dictionary, though. I pray they don't alter it further. :biggrinjester:

Re: Things and Sayings That Annoy!

Great topic!! I don't know of any sayings that really annoy me since most are so fashionably fleeting, but people who talk like they are on twitter, by using initials instead of words, i.e. BTW, OMG, etc really grate on my nerves. Also mispronouncing words, tends to make my me roll my eyes, particu...

Re: Reckless Driving in Virginia a Criminal Offense?

If Virginia considered it a misdemeanor, I would personally put "yes" and see what happens. Not every crime prevents you from getting a license, but if you put "no" and they consider that misdemeanor sufficient to have marked "yes," they could deny your application for ...

Re: This Gun Instructor Says Many Who Carry A Gun Aren't Trained To Respond To A Shooter

This guy must be a legend in his own mind, but it's an idiot to the real world. This line from his "About Me" section of his blog speaks volumes; " I have sold more than 40,000 guns and I know as much about guns and hunting as anyone. " Really? Nothing indicates he has any advan...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church attacked 16 shot breaking

I agree - CC in church is a very good thing. It used to be difficult for me to carry due to the size of my gun and being on stage, so I had to depend on my wife carrying in her purse. Now that I have a little Ruger LCP that I can fit in my pocket I carry all the time. I carried today and you'd never...
