Re: Dick's to stop selling assault style rifles.

There are far better places to buy firearms. It is their business decision to make, but I suspect given their selection and prices, they didn't make all that much revenue from firearms anyway. Other retailers will gladly take any additional business.

I don't see anything about it...guess I will send something to DPS RSD tomo...

Re: Who Carries A Snub Nose Revolver

Carry a S&W 442 in an ankle holster as a backup to a full size M&P on the hip. Also carry the 442 in a pocket holster when I am in shorts and a t-shirt instead of a longer shirt that covers the hip.

Re: CHL 90 New boxes to check.....

I plan to check multiple boxes as well. The only thing I don't like about the form is that there is an expiration date for every one....even the I regularly instruct others in the use of handguns. Also, if you have been to a recognized school and learned to instruct others, they usually give you a c...

Re: NBC News credits NRA for support of Trump.

What are the chances that the media will turn their bias to the other side now that Trump is taking the White House? As the saying goes, "The chances are Slim & None and Slim just left town." :iagree: The media elites (and those who mistake themselves as such) are cut from the same cloth as the pol...

Re: Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press

TAM, thanks for posting this. I'm shocked to see something that frank on the CBS website. That said, I wonder if any of it will really set in for those who call themselves journalists?
