Prayer Request for Dying Aunt

My 93 year old Aunt Marge, who is the last surviving member of my parents' generation and has been in a nursing home for 12 years, is under hospice care in New Jersey. Her nurses have informed me that she is no longer able to take in either nutrition or liquids. Unless something changes she will pas...

Re: Police Chief Realizes Gun Missing - After 4 Days

It would appear that one Arizona police chief doesn't give a lot of attention to his service weapon. After a meeting in a library, he changed clothes in the rest room and left his gun behind. So far, not good - but it happens. However, he reportedly didn't notice it was missing for 4 days. Not good...

Re: Oregon Governor signs bill effectively confiscating guns

Perhaps they should also pass a similar bill to seize cars from people who are known to drink too much and then drive.

That would be just as unconstitutional, but it would make many politicians walk to work and quite likely save as many or more lives in the long run.

Re: Huge Turnout at Gun Violence Forum

'Dozens' attended a gun violence forum in DeSoto on Saturday. That could mean 24 people. From the looks of the people in seats, it appears it was not much more than that :???: https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Community-Conversation-About-Gun-Violence-Held-in-DeSoto-456904893.html?

Re: Commitment to force as a LTC vs. LEO

I have seen a lot of people who preach to shoot to stop the threat. There is a lot to be said for this, especially in the LEO world. And it is something you might need to consider as a citizen in a self-defense situation. But here is another point to consider. What is your purpose in this situation...

Re: Ruger LC9S - Beware!

After approximately 150 rounds the front sight has drifted rather dramatically out of alignment. I looked on the internet for fixes. I couldn't find any so...I have to send in either the entire pistol to Ruger for them to pay for the shipping. If I choose to go that route, I have to go through a lo...

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

My round count varies with weather, dress, and where I'm going.

My minimum is 13. I top out at 46.

If I think I might need more than that where I'm going, I just don't go there.

Re: Help! Places Weapons Prohibited

I'm afraid you're in a heap of trouble for violating both state (carrying a handgun without a license) and federal law (carrying a handgun into the secured area of an airport.) Competent representation by a sharp attorney experienced in these areas will give you your best chance of minimizing the da...
