Re: NV: Sherrif who says he will inforce new red flag laws facing recall effort.

Not saying I like the law- but as Sheriff, can he just pick and choose which laws he enforces? And what kind of liability would the county and he personally face if he chose not to enforce the law on someone who later kills someone. Again- I don't like the law but in a Democracy, I think he has to ...

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

Ha! I'm sitting on an even number right now... and since I'm well short of cash for what I want next, I'm safe- for a little while! :lol: I only have three right now, but I have been looking at the Springfield in 10mm for a couple months and being short on cash is what has kept me safe for those mo...

Re: Lack of situational awareness + no plan to act

I wonder why they left off attempted murder? I was taught to not charge attempted murder unless you had proof that the person intended to kill. If the suspect was shouting something along those lines, then you went with the attempted murder charge. Otherwise, you went with agg assault because it is...

Re: No place but Mexico

If you can’t buy any of these guns in Mexico, and we are the closest country where many of these weapons ARE for sale to the general public, it’s only reasonable to believe that a number of them had to come from here; especially american made weapons. Once again, I don’t believe it is a huge proble...

Re: No place but Mexico

We can thank “fast and furious” for a significant portion of these weapons being in their hands. While I hate that program and see it was a mistake, I must point out that it is not the source of a significant number of weapons to the cartels. I urge people to stop repeating this claim. Think about ...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

Wait... I’m confused.... srothstein, are you saying that if the buyer were federally qualified to make that purchase in either state, he could have lawfully bought the gun in Texas with a Colorado DL? For instance, since I’m legally able to buy an AR15 in Texas, I could also legally buy one FTF fro...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

This is going to turn into a very important case due to its unintended consequences. As I understand the legal question in the case is going to turn on if a magazine is a part of the weapon or an accessory. The purchaser was from out of state and the federal law requires the seller to obey the home ...

Re: Sig Sauer 938 Questions

Has anyone tried the Sneaky Pete Holsters? I was thinking about this for my 938, and was wondering what others thought? :tiphat: I used one for my Glock 43 for about 9 months. Great concealment and kept my pistol with me when I wanted it (always). I would say it is a very slow draw though. In addit...

Re: Dillon Blue Press: Interesting Article

You brought up the 1911, im sure by the time you used it all the kinks were worked out. My Father also my Uncle said in Vietnam the 1911s were inaccurate and malfunctioned a lot. Any Vietnam Vets on here remember this and if so maybe if you dont mind telling us you're experience with the weapons. A...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I, for one, am very glad to see all of the committees investigating the president and most of the administration. I want to see them do as thorough an investigation as they can. I would prefer to not see them spending any money on it, but you can't have everything and investigations do cost money. B...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Flintknapper, I'm not LEO, I'm an aircraft mechanic, so forgive the question if it's a dumb one. Where did that Police Officer's Creed come from? Is that something common to a lot of departments, or specific to a certain organization? Also, where did the other creed come from, and who uses that one...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

I think she made a fatal error during her testimony. The prosecutor asked her if, when she fired at the victim, did she intend to kill him....and she answered unequivocally, "yes". He immediately repeated the question, as if he couldn’t believe her affirmative answer, and the second time, she answe...

You can 'see' what you expect to see. Who hasn't walked to the wrong car in a parking lot, got off on the wrong floor, went to the wrong door, kissed the wrong girl, etc., etc., etc., :lol:. We're all human and capable of error. However, a man is dead who should not be and it is her fault. Her gun,...

Re: TX: Dallas man goes back to bed after shooting burglar.

And the charges might have to do with something else mentioned in the comments. After the shooting, the man cleaned up his brass and threw them out. That is destruction of evidence and would tend to make the police think he had done something wrong or not told them the truth. There are lots of old s...

Yes but you can carry under castle law only even though you have a LTC. This is the other part that is bothersome. You cannot carry under the castle doctrine in Texas.
