Re: Is this video real?

edited to add: My brazillion is a bit rusty but I think he said "hey look what I did, while attempting a trigger job on this old worn out pistol!" :lol: I'm not suggesting the video is real or set up, just that you can find a malfunction in almost any brand on the web... if one bad gun was...

Re: Lawsuit Against Gun Sale Website Allowed to Proceed

Maybe she should sue the murderer... or his estate, family that failed to help him or the number of others who failed him...

This is literally like suing ford over a drunk driver killing someone.

I'm hoping for a level headed jury and a reverse damages award.

Re: I have a really dumb question

I've also been wanting a 1911 in 9mm, for a long time... but since I don't load for 9mm, I have resisted. I'll give in when I find the right gun! :fire

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.

Re: I have a really dumb question

Yes, the outer dimensions of the slide and frame are the *same... so all your holsters of appropriate length should work. That's the short answer. I'd bet that DW are standard but you could verify that with a call to your favorite holster maker. *There are some minor variation in brands and parts li...

Re: Is the .40 dead?

Personally, I don't like the .40 because the recoil in the guns I tried was worse than a .45. And the bullets are too easily confused with 9mm for me to keep both in my rotation. I don't like .40 because it throws me off sometimes when scrounging brass from the range. :lol: Ha! The 1 time a shootin...

Great read! Interesting though, that the first story details a crisp sight picture upon engagement.

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

I am not an "expert" but I trust the opinions of some of them... in Tom Givens' book Fighting Smarter , he details actual gunfight debrief interviews and facts from past students. It was 65 [62 wins-0 losses and 3 forfeits] at the time the book came out. All his students that had a gun wit...

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

Still waiting here too. The one thing that has me concerned - not worried - is the self-proclaimed pro-gun guys that plan to show up in anti-NRA t-shirts to protest the NRA leadership at the NRA event. In my view, this does not solve any grievances and only serves to strengthen the enemy. Thoughts?...

Re: My guns don't need to be pretty, they just need to work

No reason a rock solid, accurate and reliable gun can't be pretty... I often carry what I consider to be a very "pretty" STI... although it was already pretty, before it was proven! :lol: On the other hand, a reliable accurate gun is pretty in my eyes. So yes, even a PF9 can be pretty... i...

Ahh... hate to hear that! Hope things go smoothly (as much as possible in this situation). A lot depends on the brand, and maybe age...

And ironic timing to have 45 posts!

Re: Banks getting in on the action

I stopped doing business with B of A a long time ago when they wanted to charge a fee to visit with a human teller rather than the ATM. Hmm... they want to charge you for something that costs them money? Seems perfectly reasonable to me. Why should I have to pay for a service I don't use? It seems ...
