Re: Recommendations for truck holstering

I believe in on body carry. For long trips I either use a shoulder holster with a lightweight denim vest or a crossdraw holster. I am a big guy 6'4" 250 and carry a Ruger P-85 , so I fill up a seat and even then both options are comfortable and easy to draw if needed.

Re: Paddle Holster: Inside the pants or just the belt?

Fobus web site video, "properly worn inside the pants". I had always worn mine inside the belt for a more solid catch on the belt. Learn something new every day.

Even a cough ,cough Glock might have to be retuned if dropped on feed lips. No magazine is indestructible, esp as he was tuning 3-5 thousands.

Re: Light weight summer shirts for concealed-carry

Duluth trading. At 6'4" 250 finding long enough is my problem. Duluth trading plumber extra long tails are great.
Even the big and tall shops are really just big after XL ,most shirts are just wider not any longer.
V neck or polo style are all I wear.

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

Having paid $1000 for a like new 1943 M1 Garand ( new barrel,wood ect) :There is no way I would pay $850 for a pistol that the cmp states it has to be repaired to work.
M1 Garand built 5,468,772 WWII cost $85 dollars
M1911 2.7 million built. WWII cost $15

I do not understand CMP pricing

Civilian Markmanship Program

I guess we overwhelmed the CMP 1911 web site after receiving an email from cmp about having new information.
It seems to be down/offline.

Re: Got this shotgun for $69

The 158 receivers would also take rifle barrels. I have a 20 gauge and 30-30 barrel set.
The two digit receivers were shotgun only.

Re: Be Careful About Wearing A Shirt One Size Larger Than Normal

At 6'4" 250 finding a shirt too big is not my problem LOL.
Duluth trading is where I get most of my shirts, the extra 2" length plumbers shirt are wonderful.
