Re: What oil/lube do you use

You should see my gun cleaning kit. I have who knows how many different cleaners, solvents, oils, greases, etc., probably like some of you. The truth is, I have never had any gun problems that I could trace to failure of a cleaner or lube.

Re: Denton Record Chronicle Supports HB 1911

I am surprised to hear that Strauss and a coalition of both parties are in favor of Constitutional Carry. But I would love to find out that it is true.

Re: Smith and Wesson M&P 22 Compact

ANYTHING is easier to rack than the Kahr CM9/CW9.
My wife carries one and likes it, except that it is a bear to rack. Even I have trouble, and I have been doing this for decades.

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

It ain't perfect, but it's still good.
As an instructor, it will cut into my business, but I'm more concerned about the Constitution than I am about my bottom line.

Re: How Much Off Target?

I stopped doing math word questions when I got out of high school.
Even then I mostly failed them.

Re: You favorite rife ? Shotgun ?

Those old 700 BDL's sure were purty. Not sure if the newer ones look that good or not.

Re: Removing a Flash Suppressor

Another question to ask is, how long was the flash suppressor?
Once you removed the suppressor, is the barrel still at least 16" long?

Re: Knife rights

Wow, lengthy discussion, but it looks like there are still some disagreements as to the meaning of the statute. Unless I missed it, I didn't see Charles weighing in on the subject. Would love to hear his take.

If that's the law, I would like to see it. As far as I know, there is a limit on length with or without a LTC. Same with Daggers, dirks, Bowie knives.
Kind of stupid.

That, and also the very idea that someone carrying a gun was drinking rather heavily.

Re: Rodeo Situation

You did just what you should have done. Nothing. If the guy wasn't causing any trouble or bothering you and yours, best to stay out of it.
I agree that he wasn't exercising good judgment, but we can't police everyone.

Re: Please Recommend Eye Protection

I do just the opposite. Since I am an instructor and many of my students borrow my eye and ear pro, they get used a lot. I tend to buy a lot of cheaper eye pro, and when it gets too scratched up, I just throw them away or use them in my home workshop. I have seen expensive glasses get dropped, bent ...
