Re: IN: Furniture store owner drives off would-be robber

“I knew when he pulled the hammer back on the automatic weapon there wasn’t a bullet in the chamber," Stinson said, "I know the sound.”

And what does that sound like?

Re: Thoughts using laser as bedside gun

Agreed that visible lasers on a handgun are more gimmick than utility. An exception to this would be awkward shooting positions, such as underneath a vehicle where getting a sight picture might be difficult. Other than limited circumstances, it's better to build good fundamentals to allow instincti...

Re: Thoughts using laser as bedside gun

Last night I read an article by SGM Kyle Lamb in the August Guns and Ammo about this subject. It is not available online unfortunately. Best takeaway I got was: 1. Have a gun mounted light. 2. Have a second light with a bungee cord on it that you can hold in your hand in case of failure of light on...

Re: Thoughts using laser as bedside gun

Definitely go with a weapon mounted light (WML), but I'm not sold on using a laser. I had a Crimson Trace grip laser on an Officer size 1911 that I really never used and seemed more gimmicky than useful. But I do like having the ability to use a WML one handed if I had to, like if I'm pointing my gu...

Re: For those who carry a 5” 1911

Although I'm transitioning to 9mm now (I'm shooting more often and it's cheaper to shoot), I carried a full size and a Commander size (aluminum frame) 1911 as well as a Glock 21 both OWB and IWB with no problem. Full size 1911 was mostly carried in a Comp-Tac paddle holster and an MTAC using a Wilde...

If you don't have Netflix there's only two.
It's reason enough to get Netflix for a month or two and watch it :)

I watched Yellowstone last night. Wasn't bad but I'll give it an episode or two more till I pass judgement.

Re: New to me ammo supplier

Thanks for sharing. I always try to buy in bulk online and finding the best deal possible to offset the shipping. Haven't seen any reviews of either of those Winchester offerings so I guess I'll have to see what I can find online as well.

Cleaning and a couple judicious drops of lubricant might do wonders.

Re: The Winchester 1300 shotgun

I was going to reply to this last week but figured I'd wait until after I had gone to the range this past Saturday to give a better report. I used to have a Winchester 1200 Defender and now currently have a 1300 Defender. It's rarely been used as I really don't know of any gun ranges where I could s...
