Re: Getting started in Optics on handguns

I'd look for a nice wide field of view. Top loading battery. Great battery life. Dourable. Adjustable (intensity, a real on off option, etc).

Trijicon SRO. New, big, and fixes the bottom battery loading problem the RMR 05/06 'suffer' from. But alas, won't be cheap.

Re: 9th Circuit says 2nd Amendment does not cover legally present but nonimmigrant aliens

What a mess. There are a ton of folks on non-immigrant visas (visiting students, work visas, etc) that have legally purchased firearms.

Off to see what our industry lawyer types are saying and if I have read this wrong.

Re: Nervous LTC test

What kind of gun are you shooting? a long stiff pull on a trigger can make it hard to keep the sights on target. Lots of new shooters these days are buying LC9s or LCP styled guns and they can be tough to master. I’m shooting a Sig P320 compact, again i have small frame hands so I am thinking it is...

Those are really the only two answers (Briley and Feland) for Houston that I give to customers asking about shotgun work. Be curious if anybody knows of a third?

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

You'll get plenty of time for lunch. I popped over to Florence the first day, ate a nice lunch at D Boones and was back with plenty of time to spare. That's a really popular place with DPS so expect a crowd, but they're fast. Second day a student brought in enough breakfast tacos to feed an army, so...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

For autoloaders, it really depends on what price point you're looking for. Semi auto's I've handled and shot: Beretta - they make great shotguns. The A400 is a nice gun and comes in several trim packages from field to fancy. Benelli - Super Black Eagle 3 is a terrific gun. CZ - The 712 is a great gu...

Re: TAM In The Hospital

I'm late to the party. Please heal up and do what they tell ya!! Almost lost my dad a little over 10 years ago because of a perforated ulcer/ uncontrolled bleeding. For years, he took Excedrin by the handful (rebound or overuse headaches I think it's called) and it caught up to him. Fortunately, sur...

Re: Anaheim PD LEO's fire 76 rounds on move, through windshield.

Those guys are calm in the midst of a very tense situation. I don’t fault them for thinking that the airsoft was a real firearm. If the officer followed his training and did not violate departmental policy or did not disregard direct orders from a superior then I fail to see why he is fired. This P...

I'll give the driver credit, he went in all in and finished the job. But holy smokes was that stupid.

Re: Homeowners 1 burglar 0

The KHOU article is poorly written. ABC 13 says the suspect was killed while breaking in. Channel 2 says "The suspect kicked the homeowners' back door in and that's when the two began to fire at him, police said."

If so, justified.

Re: ATF says bump-stocks have never been used in a crime...

From reading the letter, ATF did not say that at all. Rather they're stating only that they've found no records. How literal was this FOIA search? Did they simply search for crime reports coded with the words "bump stock?" Perhaps they only recorded the brand/model number of said "bump stock." Or, ...
