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

10 days, wow - that'll sure send a message. Should have been 10 days per call , where no one was hurt or killed because of it, and accessory to ________ from the initial reason of for the call if someone was hurt or killed. That would send a message. I see your 10 days and raise it 100 :thumbs2:

Re: Front Sight Focus---Or Not...

I have a lot to say on this subject, based on both competitive and real life experience, but I'll write some when I have some time.

Yeah - that's what I learned on, but its light weight made it a thumper (OP has a 12 yr old) and pump-guns are markedly more difficult to use on doubles for beginners. That said, it's definitely an option with the right chokes.

Re: Houston - Looking for used shotguns for skeet and sporting clays

O/Us are nice but decent ones can be pricey; there's also the "fit" issue to consider, particularly when 2 guys will be sharing it. With that said, look into something like a Remington 1100 semi-auto, ideally with screw-in chokes.
