Re: On line classes have started

Below is how I recently modified the LTC page on our web site: Private (minimum 5 hour) LTC classes are available for 1 - 4 people at $60 per hour on weekdays or $80 per hour on weekends (if available). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: 9.22 Necessity

Possibly a quite viable application of 9.22 as a defense. Just hope you could get the situation resolved and the gun put away before the LEOs arrive or you might not be around to need it.

Oliver North to speak at 30.06ed Church

A friend sent this to me today for consideration in putting up on DCSA's Facebook page. Then I asked if Fellowship Church in Grapevine was still 30.06ed. He replied yes and yes on 30.07. His last comment was wanting to hear my thoughts, which I will give him when time for a little sit down session. ...

Re: Does anybody here still care a revolver?

I keep a S&W 637 constantly in an ankle holster to be able to strap on quickly as a #2 gun if it is a day I am to be wearing 6" lace up boots. It's especially handy sometimes for hunting lease trips to be able to switch out Gold Dots for snake shot.

Re: M&P®380 SHIELD™ EZ™ Consumer Advisory

I bought the .380 EZ Sunday for training purposes, experienced the problem when breaking it in yesterday and got shipping label e-mailed to me this morning. Tested with 2 different kinds of non+P ammo and the safety worked its way up sporadically with both. Jury is still out on the grip safety. It m...

Re: Got this shotgun for $69

Quote: "Not something I would use as any type of self defense gun, because, after that one one shot, it will need to be discarded, to transition to to another weapon." Not my first choice either, but, after shooting one off and on for well over 50 years, I can attest to the fact they can be reloaded...

Best Buy store oopsie

Semi-disabled USMC member was at the range earlier this week, wearing a Glock 19 and extra mags in a black belly band. He is a rather big guy and the oversized t-shirt he was wearing had a rather obvious odd shaped protrusion at around 2:00, somewhat above his waistline. I made the snarky remark tha...

Re: Not-so-non-violent dispute resolution

Chemist - Student's story, not mine. He did say he spoke with the man briefly on the way out and informed him that he would have been glad to let his Mom sit down if the approach had been a little more civil.

Not-so-non-violent dispute resolution

65yo short guy with LTC sat in for a "voluntary refresher" in my last LTC class. He wanted to tell the following story during class, but time was short and I had him save it to tell me later. He said he was eating solo at a table for two in a very busy restaurant in Carrollton when a very large and ...

Re: Nervous about my proficiency test next week

You may want to find a range where you can practice the course of fire (details on FAQ page at http://www.dentoncountysports.com) on the B-27 target. The LCPs are not necessarily the best choice for testing due to the short barrel (and lousy sights and trigger on the LCP I). It is typically not all ...

Rowlett 17 year old arrested with semi auto rifle

And who thinks a law requiring age of 21 to purchase would have deterred this 17 year old?

Re: I finally came over to the dark side.......

I've had a WASR for a long time, but it's pretty much an ugly safe queen. From prone and using a stump for a rest, I've actually got 3" groups with it at 100 yards with nothing but the open sights. You may want to do some reliability testing with the PMAGs. I had to return some mags so many years ag...
