Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

The only way to pursue "constitutional carry" is with the bill I've already written for 2019. It 1) moves all of TPC §46.035 to §46.03 so as to apply it to unlicensed carry; 2) renders LTC exempt from not only TPC §46.02, but §46.03 as well; and 3) makes anyone who can lawfully possess fir...

Re: Arrl field day for those interested in ham radio

Had a great time at Field Day!! Hope everyone enjoyed their time and got home safely. Currently resting and recovering! I wasn't able to stay long in Arlington but I did pass the Tech exam while I was there. It was interesting to see see different equipment being used. Congratulations and welcome t...

Congratulations! Welcome to the hobby.

Re: Deltapoint Pro on 1911

You shoot a red dot-equipped gun in IDPA? I haven't been following the rules since I stopped shooting IDPA a couple years ago, but wouldn't that force you to shoot in the NFC division? Why not shoot USPSA where you can actually use a red dot in a legal division? A P320 with a dot would be an excell...

Re: Early model CZ75

I like 'em a lot - I was pondering the P09 heavily and would still like one. The reason I ask is that I really liked my old USP Compact, which was polymer-framed and hammer-fired, but I hated the 40 S&W caliber. I would consider adding a similar pistol in 9mm to my collection, and the CZ's seem...

That a great story. You may want to consider keeping that call even when you upgrade.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Got the same radio myself. Already looking into a little better mobile setup. Repeaters around the house have been quiet but was able to get my first conversation going this morning on a busier repeater. Should have my vanity callsign approved any day now. I have a Kenwood TM-V71A dual band in my c...

Re: S&W Rebate

I tried to check my status, but it only shows the Burris Fastfire III that was the free offer with my Burris AR-332. That's not encouraging.

Re: Deltapoint Pro on 1911

I was about to take one of my Commanders to my pistolsmith to put a Deltapoint Pro on it. I decided to buy a Springfield Champion instead and have it milled for a DeltaPoint Pro. The bottom line was about $1,300 ($729 + $326 + 219 + shipping) making the SIG P320 RX far more attractive. No, it's not ...

Re: Deltapoint Pro on 1911

The final factor was cost. I found the Deltapoint for $326 v. about $500 for the RMR. Chas. That was a great deal! The only ones I've found "in stock" were $399. I found a couple of places that were in the $326 price range but "out of stock." You got me thinking about getting my...

Re: Deltapoint Pro on 1911

:oops: From what Charles said about the dot running all over the place I thought he was talking about a laser. I don't understand how the dot on an RDS will run or dance around. Is it different on a handgun than on a rifle or carbine? The dot cannot actually be moving more than the front sight on a...

Re: Deltapoint Pro on 1911

Any reason you chose Deltapoint over the Trijicon RMR or Vortex red dots? There are three reasons for my decision. First, it was the recommendation of my retired SWAT friend who has had extensive experience with red dot sights. Secondly, the battery location. The Deltapoint Pro battery case is acce...

Re: 1911's and revolver now permitted in NRA Carry Guard Classes

There is a lot of speculation about the NRA Carry Guard Level I class, who will teach it, and the motivation for its creation. I have learned a lot more about it in recent days, but it's not for me to disclose details at this point. I will address a few concerns in general terms. "Operator scho...
