Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

HB560 would have certainly been my first pick to pass. Since it won't, let's do what we can to pass HB1911. If it passes, and there is no blood in the streets over the next 2 years, surely there can't be any argument against removing some restricted places, right?

Right?

Re: Bearding

I let mine grow for a few months, and then my wife tells me she misses my face. That's her secret code for, "I hate that thing. Shave it off."

Re: What would you do?

I have always told my students that if I come home and see someone walking out my front door with my TV, I'd hold the door for them (maybe some slight hyperbole). Stuff can be replaced. Don't get me wrong; I like stuff, but I don't own anything that I'd be willing to take a life over. The other side...

Re: 6 weeks Taurus... 6 weeks

My LGS doesn't even sell Taurus. They may have to reconsider, since I'm told that a local business is producing some barrels on their newer models, but they would rather lose a sale than sell a Taurus to a customer. Guns that I've seen come through their shop from before they began their policy A 19...

Re: I need to be stopped........

I just pulled the trigger on a brand new Springfield loaded 1911 with night sights. The online price, coupled with the Springfield magazine madness promotion was just too good to pass up. Once this piece is tested and evaluated I'll work it into my carry rotation. And.....as soon as I figure out ho...

Re: A True Accidental Shooting

Okay, there are a few acronyms floating around this thread... anybody care to share the meanings?

SOF-T - I figured out this one is a type of tourniquet.
AFAK - Ankle first aid kit?
IBD - ?
DOKs - ?

Lot's of possibilities on a couple of these.

Re: Certifying family members for LTC

I am an LTC instructor, as well as a ham radio volunteer examiner. The guidelines for being a VE state specifically that we aren't allowed to oversee exams for family members. I see no such prohibition in the LTC guidelines.

Re: One liners?

A guy walks into a bar, and wakes up in a hospital.
Two guys walk into a bar, which is stupid. The 2nd guy should have seen it.
Three guys walk into a bar; the bartender says "What is this, some kind of joke?"

Re: Ghost Guns -- NBC Evening News, February 9, 2017

Just a couple of thoughts...I've never seen anyone finish out an 80% lower, but all of the pictures I've seen of them show shiny aluminum on the inside. The one Vasquez 'finishes' has a nice, even, dark finish. At the 1:11 mark, isn't that a lathe on the left wall of his shop? If he did finish that ...

I have no idea as to the quality of the rifle, but Primary Arms has a complete AR for $399.
And another one.

Re: ATF White Paper discusses deregulating suppressors and arm braces

TAM, Do you know: Is it the hope suppressors will simply be allowed to be bought freely and installed, no muss, no fuss with paperwork, no tax for owning one (or multiple) and no wait? Or ...? Thanks! I've been wondering this too. I had heard that they would be treated the same as rifles. You'd sti...
