Re: CDC did not publish data supporting Gary Kleck’s DGU estimates

I'm going to have to look into these statistics a little more. At this point, the 2.5 million may sound closer to point than the 92,000, although 92,000 is exactly what the survey for 1996 says. I guess a lot of my personal bias comes from where I grew up in the 90s. I've been fortunate enough to gr...

Must be a Swedish meatball food fight. They are shooting them at each other with muskets while using cheap furniture as cover.

Re: CDC did not publish data supporting Gary Kleck’s DGU estimates

Whether the number is 92000 or 2.5 million, that is a lot of uses of guns in self defence!!! Agreed. 92000 sounds about right, and is still a huge number. That doesn't count the people who refused to answer and actually did have an encounter nor does it include people who've had multiple encounters...

Re: CDC did not publish data supporting Gary Kleck’s DGU estimates

I feel like I'm missing something here. I did what the author of the paper did. I went to the CDC website and downloaded the BRFSS survey and data for 1996. I took the ASCII dataset and looked at column 314 (the one that asks the DGU question). I counted all the 1 responses. I got 55 out of about 12...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Passed my tech exam today. Congrats!!! :txflag: It's typically only a few days wait. VE guy who was helping with Exams said it took around 10 days. Hope he's wrong and you're right! Congrats! I'd still expect 10 days. I took my exam on 2/25 this year, and the FCC issued the call sign on 3/7. The FC...

Re: Shirt Dilemma

I think adding a forward cant (if you don't do that already) and using polymer base plates should fix the problem.

Re: Austin based Yeti quits doing business with NRA

I don't really understand the point of expensive, high end coolers. For just a matter of a few Washingtons, you can get yourself a large styrofoam container that can work just as well if not better than the high end stuff. Our company has a vendor that ships items to us in those containers packed wi...

Re: Would you buy this 1911?

It wouldn't be my first, or second, or even third choice for a 1911. But the price looks decent, and I'd still consider it. It's also a Springfield. They make some fine 1911s for the money. And as the two above have said, you can't have too many 1911s.

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

Hey, I'm not complaining that it didn't come personalized with gold embroidery or with anything fancy shmancy. They were making such a big deal about the meeting that I was expecting something more than, "Let's hope they realize this is the badge."

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

Woohoo! Just got mine in the mail. And boy... OK, my expectations were already very low. Extremely low. But no, somehow, the NRA hit the mark below the bar. I saw the letter. Looks great. I saw the badge holder. OK, it's an odd, nonstandard design. Fine. Wait, where's the badge? It's not in the hold...

Re: Is Cornyn's time up?

In reality, Cornyn is pro-2A. He's just not as ardent about it as most 2A supporters are. He's more on the middle, which still makes him a far better candidate than any Demorat. I will vote for him if he is my best choice, regardless of political party affiliation. The way things are going, I know a...
