Re: On Going Outside to Investigate Noises

I'll give the trooper the benefit of the doubt- I bet there are facts not in the written story that could be important. You're right in that news accounts are never complete and are rarely completely accurate. Articles based on initial reports are usually less complete and less accurate than the or...

Re: How do I fry fish?

Hot and fast! (and with great care to have dry fillets before seasoning/battering due to the water hitting hot oil) Frying at too low a temp makes the batter/coating soak up the oil. Cook in small batches to keep from lowering the oil temp too much when adding fish. I also prefer a mix of flour and ...

Re: Nesbitt (Morris) v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers!

Great news, indeed!

As an avid fisherman- and living right between to COE lakes, this is huge! Boat ramps at 2am after night fishing are pretty scary places, and crawling with unscrupulous people!!!

Re: Force to deadly force when displaying a firearm

Steven, what you are proposing is reckless and illegal. not necessarily, it sounds more like he's unsure of the terminology or process... He used the term non deadly force but sounds like he doesn't understand that fisticuffs can indeed be deadly force. Like many of us he needs a little [more] trai...

Re: Need a holster carry position recommendation

Lot of variables- I carry 3:30-4:00 but also with more cant than most. with a narrow gun (like a 938) it's actually very comfortable in a seated position or my auto seats- I only have to adjust the lumbar a smidge. Sometimes a small adjustment like 1/2-1" fore or aft will make a world of differ...

Re: "Gun Violence Prevention" lecture in Dallas, March 7th

I thought Scott Lewis was an articulate guy who represented us very well. And he showed great restraint on not calling out some obvious bull. (He took lots of notes but didn't get a chance to circle back to refute points. ) sent regards from our community (of which he is a member) Well done, Mr. Lew...

Re: "Gun Violence Prevention" lecture in Dallas, March 7th

I'm streaming intermittently (bad connection) but the prof. said white gun owners are anger driven and associate crime with black and hispanics, and they look forward to using their guns against minorities. :mad5 :mad5

Re: Wilson Combat's new EDC X9

I have 3 handguns. They work flawlessly out of the box and shoot better than I can. None cost more than $400.00. As do each of my 1911's- the kimber included. You didn't know your guns would work before you shot them, just like me and everyone else here. ALL manufacturers have occasional lemons. Ju...

Re: Thinner gun belt

it gets a little tricky (and sometimes impossible) to get it back through the first belt loop with a lot of pants. Are you wearing khakis? or just have small jeans loops? When my office dress code used to require slacks, I went to 1 1/4" belt, in horsehide (which is also a little thinner than ...

Re: Wilson Combat's new EDC X9

Finally, a double stack I can like!

Liberty- Yes, it should run right out of the box, as should all guns.
