Re: Early Saturday Austin rampage

There was an earlier report that said the suspect is in this country illegally. I see that it wasn't in the NBC report

Re: Pentagon nominee says insane for civilians to own semi-auto

I seem to remember Colin Powell making similar statements many years ago.

Re: Scary shotgun owner

Yes it's scary...First of all I was tending to another customer nearby. The lady that was checking him out probably doesn't know any better either since she is basically anti-gun. Second of all when he "checks" his gun all he is going to find is it says 2 1/2 or 3 stamped on the barrel. If...

Re: Called out in church on my CC

I don't like for anyone outside of family to know that I carry. If there is a situation that may require self defense I don't want anyone glancing my way like they are expecting me to do something. And believe me, they will. Glances are giveaways if the assailant is paying attention.

Congrats. Will be looking for you on the airwaves. Now that I have an old partially operational HF rig I'm finding 40 meters has become my favorite band.

Re: Has anyone heard from Mr Cotton?

Thanks. I don't normally read those threads. I had sent a pm couple days ago about ham nets and got no reply. But that was understandable given the situation down there. Glad they are okay.

Re: Has anyone heard from Mr Cotton?

Just made inquiry on one of the ham radio storm nets and Charles call sign supposedly was heard mobile in Missouri yesterday. Hope that's correct.

Re: Dallas activists press for Confederate monument to come down

I think it only fair, then, to press for the removal of Lincoln's monument from D.C.. If it is racism the that bothers them then let's just see what Lincoln himself thought of the African race. "There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate am...

Re: HiPoint JHP failure to ....?

Look at the ejector and the extractor. One of them malfunctioned and let the empty just flip over and the slide rammed it in. And was it the last round in the mag.
Actually I would call/email HiPoint and send them the pic. They might be interested.
