Re: Thinner gun belt

I tried one of the reinforced Klik Belts (https://www.klikbelts.com) and it seems sufficiently stout. Much lighter and easier-wearing than my double-thickness bullhide gun belts too, especially with shorts and summer weight clothing.

Re: Fender bender

I had a similar interaction with a SAPD officer recently. I was in a two-car accident and called 911. I gave the officer my ID and CHL and told him I was armed. His response was a shrug and he said "As long as I don't see it (my pistol), we're good". They seem to be training them well in ...

Re: Pass through shots/ liability

My first CHL instructor explained it to me this way - "Every round in your magazine has a lawyer attached to it. If you send a round out into the real world, the lawyer goes with it and he or she may not have your best interests at heart if your actions were less than 100% justified and legal.&...

Re: Why a 1911?

Aside from the great trigger, flat profile, that it fits my hand perfectly, and that I can hit what I aim at with a 1911 better than I can with most anything else, this pretty much sums it up for me: http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk40/SecurityGeek/e0bfc75e-0e3c-4170-86e5-3f5a30248ae9_zpsrz5mdxz...

Re: Real Man Rules

In his American Handgunner (Sept-Oct, 2005 issue) piece, Roy Huntington mused on the concept of the "retro-guy". Much of his "Retro-Guy Code" could (and should) be considered Man Law. Here is the article: In light of all the "retro-this" and "retro-that" it su...

Re: Powerful message from the NRA

I really don't understand the debate. We (not anyone here, specifically, but the people of this country) elected a crooked Chicago politician with a devout anti-gun record. Did anyone really think he would NOT go after guns first chance he got? Even if he had to lie, cheat, and steal to do it ("...

Re: Favorite Authors / Books?

One more - I love stories about the Napoleonic era (Peninsula Wars) in Europe in the early 1800's. The Sharpe's series by Bernard Cornwell is a long-time favorite, as is the BBC film series made from his books (starring Sean Bean, Brian Cox, and a very young Elizabeth Hurley, among others). I also l...

Re: Favorite Authors / Books?

I really enjoy The Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. In his fifteen novels (of a planned 20) and a few short stories so far, Butcher tells the modern-day story of one Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, Chicago’s first (and only) Wizard Private Investigator. It's like Harry Potter + Chinatown fo...

Re: What are you currently reading?

Just re-read Ghost Fleet - A Novel of the Next World War by P.W. Singer & August Cole. I work in corporate infosec, so this is a topic near to my heart. It's scary how far behind we really are in the cyber warfare arena. I have a slide deck from an NSA presentation on recent Chinese infiltration...

Re: Is This True ?

And to think, a mere 70 or so years ago, they held off Hitler and the blitz virtually alone for several years until we got involved. Perhaps peace is not all it's cracked up to be. Their fair island seems to have become infested with rabbit-people.

Re: Pocket Carry: What Do You Do?

I find that back pocket carry works well in jeans with the shirt tails worn untucked. Not terribly comfortable if you'll be sitting for any length of time, but it works.

Re: Gun belts

You might check out "Hank's Belts" on Amazon.com. Most run $50 - $60, bullhide with removable hardware, and are very tough. I bought two a few months ago and they still look and feel new.

Re: Kahr PM9..anyone Ankle Carry???

I like the Galco Ankle Glove for my PM9 and for the odd j-frame. Nicely padded. I do recommend the support strap they sell - like a sock garter, it goes right below the knee and helps keep the rig from sliding around.

Re: Side affect of HB 910

The iPic movie theater in Fairview had both signs up yesterday. Sad. Hopefully the Alamo Drafthouse doesn't follow along.
