Re: Who Carries A Snub Nose Revolver

I often carry an SP101, generally in a Galco belt slide. Have carried it with a Clipdraw in the appendix position when I want to go super trim. One speed strip for spare ammo.

Re: Gen 5 Glock intitial impressions

Thanks for the review. I'm going to start looking for a 19, too.

Re: New to Texas = Legal Question

Thank you. This is what I had concluded based on my preliminary research. It's the law that one doesn't know about that can prove problematic!

New to Texas = Legal Question

Back in PA, all handgun transfers--including local sales between private parties--had to go through an FFL. That PA state law precluded shipping a handgun directly to another PA resident. I know that TX does NOT require an FFL in private party transactions. So is there a TX STATE law precluding ship...

Re: Kids and guns

Been a while; my youngest is 20. But we introduced our kids to guns early. Ayoob has a short book called "Gun-Proof your Children" that I read years ago. I started my oldest son with a toy shotgun (it shot darts); with that he learned the four rules, and I made him put the darts away separately from...

Re: Pump-actions vs Lever-Actions

I may forego a lever- or pump-action chambered for a pistol cartridge as a short-range defensive rifle , and go with my Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge. I'm going to get an 18 1/2" barrel for it and an extended magazine. With the mag loaded with alternate slug and #3 buckshot rounds it ought to do the job...

Re: Budget Bug-Out Bag

LA Police Gear has their 3-day pack on sale right now. http://www.lapolicegear.com/diplomat-3-day-backpack1.html That's what I'd do if price was a concern. Otherwise, I'd go with a 5.11 Rush bag. I use one of the 5.11's as a carry on while traveling. Great interior organizers. But well above your $5...

Re: Pump-actions vs Lever-Actions

:iagree: Not an official "scout" by Cooper's definition, but my go-to hunting rifle for a very long time has been a Remington Model 7 in .308. I dropped it in an H.S. Precision sporter stock and mounted a compact Leupold 2-7X in the standard (rather than forward) position. It is light, handy, and ju...

Re: Pump-actions vs Lever-Actions

A lot of good info in the replies above. I agree with Annoyed Man that the bolt-action rifle is the best all purpose platform. That said, I like levers and pumps, too. While there is some overlap now, generally speaking the levers work best with pistol cartridges and flat-nosed rifle cartridges like...

Re: My instructor said....

Please, not another caliber war! We are already worn down by the .45 vs 9mm debate! "rlol" Roger that. Bad example. :roll: My point is just that in addition to many long-time shooters in the class, there are often complete newbies who could benefit from the experiences and opinions of the instructo...
