Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

I'm planning on attending too.

Update:

With bad weather predicted for the long drive, I'm going to postpone attendance until next month.

Re: FBI: Most violent city in each State ranked

A small number of crimes in places with very small populations produce statistics that aren't representative of actual conditions. A single incident of triple homicide in a town of 100 people would show up in the stats as 3,000 homicides per 100,000 people when extrapolated out to level the populati...

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

When I went to the NRA convention in Houston a few years ago, the massive protests promised turned out to be about a dozen or so misfits, who were so inconspicuous you would've figured they were just the usual vagrants if you didn't look closely. I personally couldn't care if they came with a thousa...

Have a look at Concealment Express for IWB holsters at very reasonable prices.

Re: They Take the Second Amendment First and the First Amendment Second

One of our members here has a signature line (I can't remember which one, and I think he said it's a quote from his son?) that goes: "Take away the Second first, and the First is gone in a second." I like that quote. That's me, my son did not come up with that, nor was it mine originally,...

Re: They Take the Second Amendment First and the First Amendment Second

A large part of the problem in dealing with these attacks on liberty is that we allow the enemies of freedom to define the terms and then try to fight it using their language. Notice how they fight the 2A: - Call a rifle an "assault rifle" - Give wall to wall media coverage of misuse of gu...

Re: UK outlaws home delivery of knives purchased online

The most likely easily predicted outcomes of this latest fiasco from the loony bin across the pond: 1. Great new business opportunity - smuggling knives. 2. The price of knives sold without background checks just went up. 3. The price of scrap steel and grinding wheels just went up. 4. Knife crime w...

Re: .45ACP is still my choice for handgun caliber

My EDC's are usually .45's. I sometimes carry 9mm when capacity may be important, but I favor the big heavy bullet for nearly everything else. Yes, I know the wound channels look the same and recoil recovery is quicker with the 9, but in my experience the .45 takes the fight out of BG's with fewer ...

Re: Smith & Wesson 5906

It's worth what you paid for it, but I would suggest having it inspected by an S&W certified armorer before trusting it for defensive purposes. I would strongly recommend you have the gun checked by a competent gunsmith to make sure it is safe. I could be wrong, but that engraving on the left s...

Re: .45ACP is still my choice for handgun caliber

Like most things the answer is found on YouTube I like that he shot two XDs 3.3's, head to head for the comparisons. This is consistent with what I've seen - bad guys hit with a .45 are more likely to go down faster with fewer shots than with a 9mm. I don't know if it's because of the momentum, the...

Re: Smith & Wesson 5906

That was my last duty gun when I was a full time LEO. I was also in charge of the armory. Per S&W we had to fully tear down each of our 200 or so guns, run them through the ultrasonic cleaner (with parts baskets for the 70+ parts for each gun because the parts were not necessarily interchangeabl...
