Re: Things and Sayings That Annoy!

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church attacked 16 shot breaking

imkopaka: Having an LCP on you certainly beats having something in your bride's purse, but consider this: I don't know your personal preference for church attire, but myself, I always wear a sport jacket or suit jacket to church. This allows me to carry 2 pistols: my Ruger SR9C, 17 + 1, in an OWB ho...

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

EDC when at work = XDS45, 3.3" barrel. 5 + 1 in pistol, two 7 round mags as backup. Total = 20 rounds. When not at work: I carry the XDS45, the two 7 rounders for it + Ruger SR9C with 17 + 1 rounds. Total = 38 rounds. So, 20 rounds minimum, 38 rounds at church or other time not working. You can...

Re: FL: 3 Texas men arrested for firing gun at protestors at Speech

I don't believe it's true that a felon had a gun and used it to try and murder someone.

Both of those things are against the law. :-)

Dick's 10/1-14/17: R51, SDVE's, G43 & 9MM ammo.

The Dick's Sporting Goods ad, found in the Dallas Morning News of 10/8/2017, contains the following handguns for sale. The ad does not clearly state the dates that the ad covers, but does state that "Remington Days" deals are good from October 1 to October 14, 2017. YMMV. Remington R51, 9M...

6 more days, sports fans, until the breakfast.

This location roughly splits the difference for people who live between I-35W/I-35E and US 75.

See you there.

Re: What knife do you carry?

Up until the last year or so, I had never carried a knife, but my awareness of knives had been raised by all the guys on this board who always carry a knife. As backups to my pistols, I always have carried pepper spray and a small flashlight with a scalloped rim (to use defensively against BG's eyes...

Re: Best thing we can do for our gun rights - now more than ever

Yes, starting with a .22 is a good way to go to introduce new shooters to shooting. Another tip for teaching new shooters is to load only 1 round into the firearm, since you don't know how the new shooter will react to even a small caliber's discharge. As you introduce them to larger calibers, the 1...
