Re: 4 suspects break in, pistol whip homeowner and robbery

Once again we see multiple attackers. This is the new normal folks, so be sure to take that into consideration when deciding on a firearm and when training/practicing. Oh yeah, what a great time to have an AR-15!

Re: Time period for LTC 100

I got a call from a neighbor. She took a class last April (a year ago now) and passed the written test, but never took the range proficiency test. She wants to shoot the range portion and get her license. Don't usually get this kind of question, and can't remember how long the LTC 100 is good for w...

Re: Pro 2A Parkland Student Interrogated by Sheriff Deputies

Like Instapundit said they didn't really think Kashuv was a real threat, because if they had they would be hiding behind their cars. That's exactly what I was thinking. Broward County SO ignored 30+ calls to the Parkland shooter's home. Then they stayed outside while 17 people were murdered. Now th...

Re: Austin based Yeti quits doing business with NRA

I sent an email to Yeti, here is their response sent to me via email. “We're writing in response to your recent email inquiry. A few weeks ago, YETI notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations, that we were eliminating a group of outdated discounting programs. When we no...

Re: Laptop display problem

Everything is working fine now. I was able to use the hard drive as an external drive to copy the pst file to the new computer. I then imported it into the active profile on the new laptop. This way I got everything back without losing the few hundred emails I received on the new laptop. I then put ...

Re: Church Security Team help!!

Security, especially in a volunteer setting, is a team effort. The guy in charge sounds more like a dictator than a team leader. A dictator whose ego won't allow himself admit to any faults is dangerous. I would quietly back away from this guy. sometimes poor misinformed security is worse than no o...

Re: Benbrook PD Called for Gun Tshirt in Park

I don't know where you live, but around here a T-shirt is far more common attire than a suit at parks. It's not a matter of T-shirt v. suit, it's the provocative nature of some shirts. I wear a lot of T-shirts that have NRA or other gun/shooting related printing and I've never had anyone say a word...

Re: Front Sight Focus---Or Not...

This is an excellent and often not fully understood subject. I teach all of my basic and intermediate students to focus on the front sight. Whether they need a flash sight alignment/sight picture or near-perfect alignment depends upon distance and aspects of the target. (Ex. dreaded hostage shot v. ...

Could someone please describe the inside of Mr. Warren's hoslters? Is it smooth like you can get on a Tucker holster or is it rough out? Also, how is the fit on a new holster as it relates to retention? Extra points for a picture looking down into the holster... : ) Thanks! The inside of all of my ...

Re: FFL Transfer fees The Arms Room

Before Clinton, I ran a home based FFL. I know the cost of doing a 4473. Charging more than $20 for a transfer is unreasonable, especially for a CHL. Gulf coast arms Friendswood is very reasonable. I had an FFL that I let lapse during the Clinton fiasco. When the BATFE decided to require dealers to...

Re: Laptop display problem

It might work on Windows 7. Just boot up the laptop with the external monitor connected. Give it enough time to full boot, then hit Windows + P. There are multiple options Extend, Duplicate, External only. So hit the P, 1/2/3 times and see if anything happens. FYI, if you use Outlook for your email...
