Re: Hornady Critical Defense 9mm Ammo

I have a VP9 and I have no problems with Federal HST LE in it. I believe they are 147g. I have not shot any Hornady in it I don't believe. The gun is way more accurate than I am. I believe the VP9 was designed around shooting 124 NATO so a little heavier bullet might be nice. Also not that it really...

Re: Wife wants a new falling plate pistol

HK. They have the VP9 sk which is the compact if that helps I don't think that will help with grip much, it takes the same mags as the full size. On the full size the small grip panels are pretty narrow in my opinion. If he takes her to a store I would ask them to see the other panels and change th...

Re: Wife wants a new falling plate pistol

I have a standard XD-9(never tried the XDm which I'm sure is better) and a VP-9. The VP to me is a tack-driver compared to my XD. The VP does have a different sight picture out the box it is set for covering the target not holding under if that matters. If HK keeps following suit with what the P30 h...

Re: Stop the Bleeding

For those north of Houston, Montgomery County has this also which is free. It's on the south loop in Conroe.

Hands only CPR, defibrillator usage, bleed control.

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

For work it's mostly a Kahr CW9 7+1 and 7 in my pocket.

Weekends usually go bigger with a HK VP9 15+1 and 15 in the pocket.

Re: Hybrid holsters are JUNK!!!!

Seems like he used to like the hybrid holster since he used it for two years and then his taste changed so now they are all crap because he doesn't use them.

Re: Gun safe thoughts/advice

For my situation where I live in a house I own but know I will not be here forever. I have cheaper end gun safe from Dick's that I got on a sale for black Friday. Its real intention is just to keep the guns locked up and cause someone trying to steal it or open it time to get it done. So with that i...

Re: El Paso LEO in counter

If it is on base, there would be check points. Not always... There is a great swath of land between El Paso and WSMR that runs through the desert... You can drive from El Paso up to NM 213, and take that road all the way up to the back gate at WSMR main post. That will be the first check point you ...

I think I saw IT positions on Raytheon's site when I was browsing but I cant recall. Probably some tech positions too. They are in the Dallas/Plano area mostly.

Re: GLENFIELD/MARLIN 60

Good information. I inherited a Glenfield 75 from my uncle and did not know this about the rifle. I have only used it to target shoot twice, so never unloaded it just always fired till empty.

I still rack the bolt a few times so would have noticed but this saves me from googling in the future.

Re: Help with XDS Failure to go into battery

I would wonder if it is the grip safety. On the other gun might be large enough that even if she limp wrist a bit the safety is still down because it really fills her hand. On the xds maybe on the recoil she is loosening the grip and the safety moves out some stopping the return to battery.

Re: Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX 36) thinks he's better than you

There was this article yesterday on the Free Beacon that has Thomas Massie KY-R proposing DC allow any carry permit from another state it seems. No text yet so we don't know what it really says/going to say http://freebeacon.com/issues/republicans-introduce-new-gun-carry-legislation-wake-alexandria-...
