NRA Ruger SR1911, red frame & grips, Davidson's only.

Yesterday I received my NRA "America's 1st Freedom" magazine. On the inside back cover they had, IMHO, the most awesome 1911 for sale. It is a RED Ruger SR1911, 5" barrel, .45 ACP. The slide is black, and is engraved with the 2nd Amendment. The frame is bright red and the grips are al...

Re: Slidefire is shutting down?

Well, to look at this from a different angle, I read that Slidefire will shut down their website on a date certain. That kind of seems like they are going out of business, without explicitly saying so. Are they just going to stop taking internet orders, yet still continue to produce bump stocks? SIA

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will be there also, ready to discuss the Houston murder on
Facebook, and some Michigan school carry litigation, as well
as some snubbies I almost bought at last week's Lewisville Gun
show.

Film at 11.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Today I spent a couple of hours window shopping at the Lewisville Gun Show. I was wearing my custom-made nametag with my forum initials, full screen name, and forum URL, with the idea that someone from the forum would say hi. Well, greybeard, who had a table at the show, spoke up when he saw my name...

We know what a Hindu is. Do you know what a "dindu" is?

The other day I was watching some video about a hoodrat being arrested, and he was complaining to the LEO that he had not done anything. One of the people who commented on the video described the suspect as a "dindu". I couldn't access http://www.urbandictionary.com to verify this, but I b...

Ruger LCR .38 w/ FOS. What does "FOS" mean?

Today I was just window shopping at Academy Lewisville. I noticed that they had a Ruger LCR (Lightweight Compact Revolver) which had a tag that read "Ruger LCR .38 w/FOS". The counterman has a lot of experience with firearms, but he could not define FOS. I searched the Ruger site, and then...

Re: Robber didn't want to leave witnesses

For a guy who never shot a gun before, he did great drawing on a drawn
gun, connecting with a COM shot, and ending the threat.

Re: Robber didn't want to leave witnesses

Yes, it sure would be scary to draw on a drawn gun, but "action beats reaction", so by drawing 2nd and firing immediately, you may surprise the BG. If you watch robbery videos, the BG sometimes gets focused on the cash drawer, and he thinks he has everyone under control. That's when he ver...

Re: Washington State female motorcyclist defends herself

I saw another report about this DGU (Defensive Gun Use) which stated that
the 60 year old attacker was driving a GMC SUV, and his wife was a passenger.

The wife saw her husband attack the female biker and saw him get killed. Sheesh.

Re: GA: CNN Admits: U.S. Town Where Guns Are Required Has Had Only 1 Murder in 6 Years

When the bride and I were shopping for our Georgia house in 1988, we were riding around Kennesaw, Georgia (where they require homeowners to have a gun, although there is an escape clause if you don't really want to have a gun!) with our real estate agent. It was during the daylight hours when we app...
