Depends on what I hear or see!

It's not a one size fits all answer. For example: I'm on acreage and have two widows at the front of the property... so my response may need to be outside/next door. (which I've had to do a few times.) Our LEO response time is good for where we are but not good enough for a widow in distress. I ment...

Re: FL: 3 Texas men arrested for firing gun at protestors at Speech

https://www.click2houston.com/news/suspect-arrested-after-shooting-at-bus-stop-group Went all the way to Florida to cause trouble. Thank goodness not a LTC, charged in addition with possession of a gun by a felon. A hired security person at the speech was also arrested for carrying on a college cam...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Meanwhile it appears that Bil and Hil were the real crooks in the Russia deal and he's not looking there.


Why would he- sadly, that was never the goal or objective of the investigation. It was only ever about linking Trump's campaign (whether real or not) to Russia.

Fedex label sent

Not that this is newsworthy but as a timeline for those who registered their 320's for the "upgrade." I got RMA info and my fedex label last night, via email. I registered the day that Sig opened registration. (Aug. 15th or 16th, I think?)

Re: Think I need a lighter EDC than my P239

Another back pain sufferer here... a possible consideration is the belt... going to a reinforced stiffener in my leather belts is overkill for anything not all steel but it spreads the weight out so far that I noticed a big difference on my own back when I went reinforced- that a 1911 no longer felt...

Re: This Happened to Me

John Daub is an instructor with KR Training http://www.krtraining.com . I've taken several classes from him and heard him recount this incident. He's a good instructor- I've been in some of his classes, too. He's also a member here. Thanks for the link, I knew of the incident but never the details.

Re: Clearing Overgrown Land

For the dumpers- there was a place like that around here and they cleared out the gate area and put up a new gate and signs that the area was now under video. It stopped almost immediately. For clearing and road work- I would either rent a tractor w/brush hog, or dozer or hire it out... If for just ...

Re: Really Ticked Off

Clearly a wife is considered family violence. I think this one is cut & dry. Maybe not. You can get into an altercation with a relative and it not be considered domestic or family violence... as it was explained to me, there is another element ( usually control or repetition ) that make it &quo...

Re: Dana Loesch Moving Due to Threats of Violence

People against guns threaten to kill people with guns, just for owning guns.

It's ironic that the anti gunners are the violent group! I guess if it were the other way around, there wouldn't be any anti gunners. :lol:

Re: Minimum Caliber for Handgun Proficiency Exam

Sorry for mixing it up in the quote box....

I originally thought it was a legit question. (I know a few that would do that) I see now it was probably intended to be more of a rhetorical question :tiphat:

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Ok, Congress has more to do besides NK, tax reform, infrastructure, healthcare, hurricanes, and oh yes, budget. Now it's foreign policy too... Well to be fair they haven't actually done much of anything for the past year... if you and i were so productive, we'd also be getting paid- but it would be...

According to the LV articles... I'm nutz!

Wow, according to articles I'm reading on the LV shooting, anyone who doesn't have an active twitter or face book account is "keeping a low profile." How about I don't give a rip about other's thoughts of my life and choices or I don't want to document my life's minutia to the world?!?!?!?...
