Desert Eagle replica?

I'm looking for a pair of fake/replica/prop Desert Eagles, full sized, for a Halloween costume. The only ones I'm finding online so far are >$100, or small scale Chinese plastic. Anyone have any leads on a full sized prop, <$100?

TIA!

Is PSC open again, post-Harvey?

http://psc-range.com/index.php/newsflash/64-psc-re-open-date-set The latest on the club website says the goal to re-open is noon Friday (yesterday), but check back on the website to be sure before coming out. It's Saturday, and no change in the website news. So, dunno if the range has re-opened but ...

Re: Local recon needed -Houston

While HPD is (was?) running at 40% of normal capacity during the storm (people unable to get to work and/or patrol cars flooded), looting was still pretty minimal and I have seen very little info on social media about violence. So, while the previous advice about carrying + cell phone chargers are a...

Re: Participation in an active shooter drill

What makes me nervous is the idea of a scenario like that which played out... outside a Costco, I believe? Someone w. an LTC (can't recall which state) was approached by a number of amped-up officers, and there was no one clear leader in the group. Different officers were yelling different, contradi...

Re: First time as a civilian drawing my weapon preparing to engage

You did just fine. From what I can read you were being a Good Samaritan and trying to help a couple guys. #1 your already a little nervous because you don't know these guys from Adam and you don't know their intent. #2 they started approaching yohndu and would not obey your command to STOP! They ke...

Re: Help w. recalling gun law enforcement initiative

You are talking about Project Exile. Richmond, VA was the first city to do it, but others copied it. It was championed by the NRA. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20031013/project-exile-and-its-enemies-1 I don't know why it fell into disfavor, likely bleeding hearts. Thanks! I have mixed feelings a...

Help w. recalling gun law enforcement initiative

I recall a story about a jurisdiction that was suffering with a lot of violent crime. The local and/or state authorities teamed up with Federal prosecutors, and worked together to ensure that a large portion (or all?) of the felonies committed with a firearm were prosecuted by the feds - which meant...

IR lights are OK, but a camera with 'super low light' capability is even better (though more expen$ive).

Re: Tip for hot showers

I've done two things related: Changed the light switches for the exhaust fans to timers. There are buttons for 'off', 5/10/15/30 minutes. When I finally replaced the builder grade single pane windows throughout the house, I replaced the fixed picture window in the bathroom with a sliding one. So (if...
