Re: Precision Small Arms only has a 1-year warranty

My take is different.... I wouldn't buy a gun for a warranty- EVER. High Point, S&W, Taurus, and even Phoenix arms (as mentioned above).. ALL have had some questionable guns and runs in recent history, and all have been the butt end of jokes and stereotypes... for good reason. And thus feel the ...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

Flechero, I agree with most of what you said with the exception of paying more money for additional school protection. I already pay far to much in taxes for a really bad education system. How about this instead: We take a few of the non-core positions that have proliferated in our schools and trad...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

My church today talked to some of us and reminded us they don't consider carry guns in the building appropriate, but falling far short of banning us. I struggle with that one. For now I choose to respect the request. I am not sure I alway will. Sorry to hear that... it would have been my last day t...

Re: LEO training - school shootings

No one else could ever be qualified. Hard to discuss facts with those types. Sadly many LEO's are NOT well trained with firearms. The reality is that a GREAT MANY "mere civilians" have more training than LEO's. I don't have the specific info you asked about about active shooter training...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

I am starting to see that if we don't make some compromises of our choosing we will find ourselves compromised in ways we don't want and wouldn't choose. Yes, they have been crying for common sense gun control for years. I already submit to background checks I already have my fingerprints on file I...

Re: Trump health chief supports CDC research on gun violence

Let me save the gov't a couple million... Causes: single parent homes, no church, the liberal schools, drugs, greed mental heath issues, entitlement mentality being "wronged", ETC., ETC... (not a complete list) I bet if the school shooters (or any mass shooter) were tortured and mutilated ...

Re: Mossberg 500a 12 ga riot gun, 2-3/4” & 3”

Good find!! Heck of a deal! Even if it’s a cut down barrel, I still woulda bought it :thumbs2: The older 500A's actually came with a factory 18.25" barrel... I bought one as a kit in 1989 (for $189) that had a full stock, pistol grip, 18.25" & 28" mod barrels, heat shield, and som...

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

I took the course at KR Training in December, 2017, and have my certificate. In addition to the other things I learned in the 18 hour course, I have shown I can achieve over 90% on the Texas LTC course of fire, pass the DPS Shooting Under Duress exercise, and pass the shooting course for a major Te...

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

I agree with the cultural problems, and that’s obviously much more difficult to address. Why can’t Republicans introduce a bill that would fund the salaries of armed officers in every school in America. The cost of this should be minimal compared to the impact of the tax cuts recently passed. It is...

Re: Two Alamo Cannons Restored

I guess they didn't know it was loaded! You'd think someone would have checked in the last few hundred years! :lol:


On a more serious note, glad they are back and glad they have been restored. Would have been cool to test fire!!! :biggrinjester:

Re: Suggestions for insurance to cover my firearms ??

NRA insurance is free if you activate it with membership- up to some amount. When I looked at State Farm and ASI (progressive) the personal articles writers were pretty cheap and covers loss or damage inside or outside of the home. It was the best value per dollar that I found. Regardless of which i...
