Re: Question about Carrying Out of State

If you stay even one night in NY you are subject to an arrest and conviction for FELONY possession of a firearm. What every your reunion with your shipmates is worth to you, I doubt it is worth a Felony conviction. Find a spot in Vermont to Park your trailer and leave it and your firearms there. Al...

Re: Home defense: birdshot

IMO, birdshot meets the minimum criteria for self defense. You have a gun that will fire and you ought to actually hit your attacker. Beyond that, I think there are better choices for ammo selection. Just shooting and hitting your attacker will end the fight in most self defense encounters. However...

Re: LTC population Saturation Point

I think there was a thread on here somewhere about what happened to the crime map in some city in Florida when the NRA convention came to town. Massive decrease in crime because even the criminals had enough sense to realize they stood a much better chance of encountering armed resistance that week...

Re: LTC population Saturation Point

I don't think that even in a high LTC saturated situation, that everyone would suddenly draw, and begin firing, at others with guns in their hands. The large majority of people, are still going to seek cover, or a means of egress, for themselves and their families. I think that most of them will as...

Re: LTC population Saturation Point

Anyway, there was a process he had to go through to make sure he and any potential air marshals on the plane knew which seats they were in. That way, if something went down they wouldn’t jump up and shoot each other while trying to determine who the bad guy is. On the serious side, the Air Marshal ...

LTC population Saturation Point

The discussion of the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo reminded me of a conversation that a buddy and I sometimes toss around. At what point could a large LTC population become a bit of a liability to the LTC population? There is no real right or wrong answer. Just an interesting mental exercise. Scenario...

Re: Frisco Homeowner Shoots Roofing Solicitor

I wonder if the shirt was taken as evidence. Would be curious how much skin DNA would be left behind if it was grabbed. May be very little for all I know.

Re: Frisco Homeowner Shoots Roofing Solicitor

Has anyone proven this guy WAS a real roofing guy? I mean, what better cover could you have when looking for unattended homes? Knock on the door. Someone answers. He goes on with a made up sales gig. Looks legit. No one answers...... walk in and take what you want unless you find a guy with a gun i...

Re: Frisco Homeowner Shoots Roofing Solicitor

He has a Ring Door Bell and if working it should have some video on it. Will be interesting to see how this plays out. If he subscribed to the remote storage there may be video. Mine does 30 seconds on movement. I have not tested it to see how long it would stay on with a longer movement window. It...

Re: Frisco Homeowner Shoots Roofing Solicitor

No judgements, but I would imagine the lawyers/prosecutors presenting affidavits from a couple dozen folks that the solicitor met that day. "So he peacefully visited all of these other homes, some were women alone in the home, and he picked you?" I also suspect trouble for the homeowner al...

Re: How would an 06/07 violation actually happen?

I also suspect the vast majority of encounters, if handled politely, would be non-events. 1) Owner asks you to leave, and you do, it is all over. 2) LEO is called without your knowledge, they walk up ask to see LTC, then ask you to leave, and you do, it is all over. 3) Owner tells you that they alre...

Re: 3 suspects dead in home invasion

I wondered how long it would be until a liberal media source picked this up and started wondering about whether the defense use of a very lethal high powered semi automatic black finished rifle with a large capacity removeable magazine was legal. Especially since the unauthorized visitors were in t...
