Re: Got a new rifle

I guess you’re about ready for anything on the American continent - north and south - with that setup!

Re: From Sweden with love

The story is a metaphor for just about every facet of living in a socialist paradise.

Re: Recommend an AR at $700 max

Just out of curiosity, have you considered either the Springfield Saint w/ Free Float Handguard ($1049), or the Savage MSR15 Recon w/ Free Float Handguard ($999)? MSRP on both comes in at right around $1,000, but I’ll bet that street price would come pretty close to your $700 “maximum”. Just a thoug...

Re: Swiss Rifle Range

My next door neighbors - until a couple of weeks ago - are Swiss. He served in the Swiss Army. His wife’s father was an avid hunter. The Swiss laws concerning gun ownership are only in some way more libertarian than our own. They are more restrictive in other ways. For instance, I asked him if he br...

Re: Take the liberal gun quiz

There is no “gun-violence” in America. Never has been. All there has ever been is violence, occasionally committed with a gun rather than a brick or a crowbar. All three can be used for application of deadly force, but only one of them involves an implement the possession of which is an enumerated a...

Re: Neighbor Spoofing

I use an app on my iPhone called “Hiya Caller ID and Block by Hiya” which helps to identify SCAM/SPAM phone calls, and if you discover that a number is a SPAM caller and they’re not in the Hiya database already, you can add them, along with comments about the call, what the caller said or was trying...

Re: Motor homes

Chasfm11, that would be fine with me, although I don’t know how much I can teach you about rifles. It might not be a fair exchange. Trust me. I might be the one who is not contributing as much. Let me know when you have time. Well I might be headed down to ETTS either this coming Friday or the next...

Re: This Gun Instructor Says Many Who Carry A Gun Aren't Trained To Respond To A Shooter

Considering that if you go to any training at all you get more training than 50% of the sworn law enforcement officers in the country receive. And he made a critical error prior to grabbing his AR15 and responding to the ongoing shooting, and that was to NOT have any already charged magazines on ha...

Re: This Gun Instructor Says Many Who Carry A Gun Aren't Trained To Respond To A Shooter

In addition to my earlier post, here is a link to an article talking about two churches where armed citizens were able to stop a would-be mass murderer. BTW, I guess Sir Walter Mitty feels that over 50% of the LEOs in this country would not draw their weapon and engage a church shooter, because the...

I would add this....... gunstore owner or not, if I were approached by a member of the Democrat Steno Pool (AKA “the media”) and asked if he/she could ask me some questions, my first response would be “what about?” If the subject was guns, my second response would be “you’re the enemy.

Re: Motor homes

I'm not sure how I missed commenting on this thread last year. We've had an entry level diesel pusher 36' MH since 2004. It had 26K miles on it when we got it and now has 89K. We've had it over much of the country. We are not full-timers nor do we ever intend to be but we spent all of last July in ...

Re: Equifax fiasco

If you have not done it yet go to Discover card and set up a passcode for telephone conversation with them. All happened about 2 years ago. A scammer actually had a Discover card issued to a California address by fooling a telephone employee at Discover card. I got a text message about the change s...
