Re: Curious as to what the instructors/“experts” carry?

What scares me is that the first EDC carry is so often something like an LCP. That is designed to be stuck into ones pocket. Has no safety, limited amount of rounds, with an extremely short sight radius and very snappy recoil. A firearm that most couldn't passed the qualification with. I also wonder...

Re: Why Is Passenger Asked For I.D.?

Further, I can think different kinds of situations in which a law abiding citizen would be well served by volunteering their ID to police. When I lived in California, my house was located in a neighborhood quite close to the Rose Bowl, and whenever there was a game or other big event there, Pasaden...

Re: Would you buy this 1911?

Not that it matters, but for me, the 1911 is like the AK-47 of combat handguns. Stupid simple and designed to work (or repaired) under combat conditions. I will never see combat and I've learned to run away from bad situations. The 1911 is an old friend and has never failed to function as designed....

Re: Carrying target ammo or hollow point?

Yeah, but 9mm parabellum and .45 CAP have been around a century, My whole comment was intended to be fasciitis though and not intended to be taken too seriously. Playing the caliber wars can be fun sometimes.

Re: Would you buy this 1911?

I've owned only one 1911. A Colt Commander, treated with loving care and never ever, not once was reliable. I sold it for pennies. I also informed the buyer it was a fine paper weight...

Re: Dick's Sporting Goods sponsorhip of Sugar Land park baseball field

I assume the Dick's are paying for it. If so, I think it's not worth complaining to the city when the Dick's aren't doing anything illegal. I think it is worth telling progun parents about their antigun policy and telling all parents that Academy and other places are cheaper. Let the Dick's waste m...

Re: TN: Waffle House shooting leaves 4 dead, several injured

I've never noticed any 30.06 signs at any of the other Waffle Houses I've been too. I assumed that when ever I went in there were several others conceal carrying. There have been a few incidents where someone attempted to rob the place and they were resoundly stopped by a good guy with a gun.

Re: Dick's Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms after Parkland shooting

I am a simple man and not an economist but let me see if I understand this correctly. This Dick company owns some AR15s. They are opposed to people having the right to own them and wants them unavailable. The Destroy all their stock of these weapons of mass destruction. These weapons are paid for ev...

Class was 3/25. I did the online application on 4/3 and was fingerprinted on 4/5. When I checked the status on 4/5, I had the "submitted" that I expected. On 4/9 I got no status at all, just the message that if you completed the process the status would be unavailable. If your instructor ...

Re: Church Security Team help!!

Security, especially in a volunteer setting, is a team effort. The guy in charge sounds more like a dictator than a team leader. A dictator whose ego won't allow himself admit to any faults is dangerous. I would quietly back away from this guy. sometimes poor misinformed security is worse than no or...
