Re: Hearing Protection Act of 2017

What we really need is a Federal law banning and confiscating autoloader rifles that are not equipped with a rate of fire slowing device (ROFSD), that keeps you from pulling the trigger more than once every two seconds. All existing semi-rifles must be registered IAW NFA after having ROFSD installe...

Re: The Mindset of Combat Marksmanship

We are not talking combat marksmanship; we are talking combat mindset :iagree: The combat mindset is 1/3 of the holy trinity, along with marksmanship and gun handling. That said, presenting a firearm is an appropriate tactical response in some scenarios. While we should be prepared to shoot when we...

Re: Us Poor Lefties

I'm also a lefty (left handed, not political leaning) Best answer, get into competitive shooting. Either IDPA or USPSA (IDPA is a little more newbie friendly, but USPSA has more complicated puzzles). You will find yourself shooting from awkward positions and even from inside a vehicle through both d...

Re: I actually agree with Bill De Blasio

D if he were violently attacked he wouldn't call police, he'd call his antifa friends....... yikes... DO NOT DISCOURAGE THIS!!! If one of the fascists against fascism refuses to call the police during an attack and calls his fellow keyboard warriors instead, the gene pool gets a much needed cleaning!

It really is a well run match and a really unique facility.

Don't feel bad when that BHill guy beets you with his wheel gun though. :banghead:

Re: Country artist cancel concert after venue bans guns

My "go to" station on Pandora is Texas/Red Dirt Radio. They play a lot of Jamey Johnson on there.

I've always liked his music, now I like it even more.

Re: Chicago Airport....

While Roy might appear to be right, people in exactly your wife's situation who took their luggage with a gun in it have been arrested in gun hostile jurisdictions. TAM's advice is right on. Don't take the luggage. Leave it with the airline until your wife and the luggage gets on a flight home. AFA...

Re: Texas JP Court Judge Makes National News

This is one of the reasons why I stay out of H-town as much as I can (quoted from article)

He pointed out that many of the accusations had long been public, and yet voters overwhelmingly reelected Green as a Harris County justice of the peace.

Re: One in the pipe for newbies like me

The fact is that so much training is expensive, far away and time consuming that it loses priority to many folks. Many ranges discourage drawing from a holster and rapid fire. I agree with everything you said up until this sentence. Dry firing is cheap, blue guns that are exactly like your gun are ...
