Re: What are your 2018 shooting goals?

Practice at least once a week so as to get maximum value out of my Texas Gun Club membership.

Buy fewer guns than I did in 2017 and get more enjoyment out of what I already have.

Shoot more 22 so as to not go broke on ammo doing the above.

Re: S&W K Frame OK with .38 Spl +P Loads?

My wife has an older, nickel plated, K-frame S&W .38 Special with a 4" barrel. The barrel is marked "38 S&W SPECIAL CTG." There is no "+P" after this marking. The serial number is 58304 with "BIC" stamped underneath the number. Is it safe to fire 38 Spl +P...

Re: Semiauto "Mouse" guns always out of stock

Low demand and low margins. Why waste floor plan dollars and display space? I can see that being an issue for 25 and 32 ACP which are less effective and more expensive than the popular 380 ACP, but one would think 22 LR would still have an appeal being so cheap and fun to shoot. But then again, onl...

Semiauto "Mouse" guns always out of stock

For at least the past year, I've noticed that small semiauto guns of 32 ACP and less are never in stock. Examples are Kel-Tec P32, Beretta Bobcat, Beretta Tomcat, and even the Taurus P22/22 PLY. And of course Seecamp has been like this for years. The exception are the NAA Guardians, which seem to al...

Re: TX:Gun handler kills brother after midnight in Houston

Either a lie or some type of slam fire as in something other than the firing pin setting off the primer. But one would think the round wouldn't have been fully in the barrel and might have case-ruptured instead.

M&P Bodyguard 380 nuisance magazine releases

I got an M&P Bodyguard 380 earlier this year and it soon became my "everywhere where legal" carry. One major issue I have with are occasional unintended magazine releases when carried in a pocket holster or a tactical belt case, where it sits in a hidden section behind the phone. To me...

Re: Now this is the reason why I carry

A thinly-veiled robbery to say the least. One reason they keep doing this is that too many citizens sheepishly comply. A step down on this scheme would be the window washers seen at intersections all over town. What angers me most is that so many people just pay them rather than saying "no than...

The couple with the infamous "F Trump and Sheriff Nehls" signs on their truck

This is where the right to free speech and common sense don't intersect. Sure they have the right to (with the F word being debatable) but they are magnets for road rage, vandalism, and causing accidents by distracting others as well as the obstructed view from the rear window. Add the Sheriff's nam...

Re: Liability of business owners who ban licensed handguns

I think you have a good argument, but it's flawed. By state law, a private business, entity has the right to post 30.06 / 30.07 signs. As such I can't see where they would incur any liability as a result. In my opinion, they should face greater liability so that the decision to post would have a do...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 27 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

According to the Daily Mail, the shooter had been dishonorably discharged from the Air Force, which would make him a prohibited person.

Re: male victim, licensed to carry defended himself from assault

Reading between the lines... 1) noticed that the PD said the male had a licence to carry, and that PD is silent on the female, license-wise. I'm going to guess 'No' 2) brief article said; "The suspect, 23 year-old female Raven Seymone Fisher". What can you naturally assume about a young w...

Being significantly older than the attacker is a useful disparity of force "card" if the need arises.
