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 ...

Re: AR-15 research and purchase.....

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...

Re: Judge Gorsuch's NRA Grade?

Chucky Schumer said on the floor yesterday that he has "serious, serious doubts about this candidate's qualifications." Hm. Since this is Groundhog Day (Bill Murray reference), could that simply be Chucky's way of saying that since Gorsuch isn't a dem party nominee that he is de facto unq...

Re: Super bowl

... a decidedly not professional sporting event. There is prize money awarded for the elite class, wouldn't this give the DA some ammo if they really wanted? TPC states that the premises of a sporting event are off limits, so unless the marathon was held indoors, it would not apply. Packet pick up ...

Re: Comp-Tac

I use CompTac polymer clips on all my holsters but I don't actually own a CompTac holster...lol. Their c-clips are excellent! Take the three holes my Crossbreed has and the five (or six, I can't remember at the moment) on the CompTac clips and you have an exponential series of adjustment options......

Re: Super bowl

No it is not a sporting event in itself it is in a government owned building. They can not legally post 30.06/30.07 at discovery Green or the G.R. Brown for this event. To do so would be illegal, immoral, and despicable. Yet not impossible. Just sayin. Not only not impossible; quite likely. I was t...

Re: pay it forward?

Perhaps a Google Sheet could be used too... open offers & a sent/received section with forum member names, dates, and statuses. It might be a little easier to maintain than forum posts, depending upon interest level. while I realize anything posted here is likely scanned/analyzed/archived, I'm ...

Speaking of Bushnell, I just bought the Elite Tactical 6-24x50 with the G2 reticle and first focal plane, and love it.
