Re: S&W Model 27 v 28

If you just want a shooter, then the Model 28 will be fine. That used to be the DPS-issued handgun. I'd take it over a Model 19 if you plan to shoot a lot of .357 Mag. ammo. The Model 28 is a beautiful gun, if it has been maintained properly. I have a 3 1/2" barrel blue Mod. 27 and I'd never pa...

Re: Hornady Critical Defense 9mm Ammo

As troglodyte noted, LuckyGunner.com does some very good testing of self-defense loads in handguns with shorter barrels. Here is the TESTING page. I also like the testing that Paul Harrell does on his YouTube site. I find his "meat targets" to provide very good information you cannot deter...

Re: Flat Nose 147 Grain 9mm

As a general statement, I recommend that my students use practice ammo that duplicates their self-defense ammo, to the extent reasonably possible. Using the same bullet weight and velocity is preferable as your practice sessions will match your "duty" ammo's performance in terms of POA/POI...

Re: NRA Carry Guard - Level 1 Training

Just as Scott honored the request not to disclose the Level I course in detail, I too cannot provide detailed information about Carry Guard training, instructors, etc. I can say this much. The Carry Guard training is an NRA course currently taught by people with special experience and skills. (I can...

Re: Mrs. VolTexan...Part 1

I'm very glad to hear that the safe did its job in delaying the thieves long enough that they couldn't stay long enough to make penetration. I'd suggest contacting the safe manufacturer. Some of them will replace a safe that was unsuccessfully attacked for free if they can use pictures and the stor...

I've known a lot of people who have suffered from kidney stones and most wouldn't wish it on their worst enemies. Your wife is in my prayers.

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

Thank you, Mr. Cotton, for the link and reply. Now I'm curious what Congressman Massie really has against the bill... This is pure speculation, but what he is saying sounds like Dudley Brown/NAGR lies. He may be buying Dudley's crap and/or he may have received campaign donations from NAGR. Again, t...

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

I have read that Senator Schumer supports the "fix NICS" thing. Senator Schumer HATES law-abiding firearms owners, despises the 2nd Amendment, and would NEVER vote for ANY sort of bill that had anything positive to it concerning firearms. If he is indeed supporting that, then there MUST b...
