Re: Global Warming/Global Cooling/Climate Change

The number of environmentalists who are sick of the climate change alarmists is quickly rising, because crying wolf is a sure way to turn lay people who cannot independently evaluate the evidence against the broader cause. I stopped looking at temperature data a long time ago because there are so m...

Re: Tested COVID-19 Negative but I lost taste and smell

First off, good call on your self-imposed isolation just in case. My understanding is a negative result with the nasal swab is around 80% accurate (ie, if Negative, it's 80% (+/- ) sure that you don't have COVID). I'd recommend speaking with your primary care Dr & let them know about the loss of...

Re: Eldest Son Heading Out

Congratulations on his decision to serve, and the best of luck to him! If he hasn't already heard it, the first several days are in 'Reception' (haircuts, uniform issue, paperwork, etc), & along with the boredom comes homesickness & doubt. Tell him to go in strong & never forget his long...

Re: Walter Williams dies at 84

I am humbled & embarrassed that I had not heard of these great thinkers until earlier this year. Our current generation of youth will be hard pressed to find voices of truth such as Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, & Shelby Steele.

May Mr Williams rest in peace.

Re: Looking for Qty (5) pieces of 30-30 Winchester Brass

Saul,

I have 7x pieces of 30-30 brass you can have for free, & we just happen to be heading to the Houston area this afternoon. I'll PM you so we can work out the logistics of linking up.

That's an awesome gift idea you have, by the way.

Re: Current CHL renewal?

It's really simple to renew the LTC. Simply log in as a "Returning User", fill out the application online, & pay the renewal fee. Here's the link to the DPS' page (same page for changing address or lost/stolen card. If she's not within the 6-month window for renewal, that option won't ...

S&W M&P Shield EZ Recall

S&W posted a recall notice today for EZ's made between March & October 2020. Seems there's a potential for a slam fire when the slide closes, either on loading or when cycling (some internal hammers may form cracks & fail to engage sear). To check if yours is included in the recall, ente...

Re: SR Primers in stock - pack of 5k

Andy,

Much thanks for posting that link. It seems they had a metric ton of traffic, as the website kept timing out. I was finally able to get the order to go thru, so now I can narrow my search for just small pistol primers!

Re: Heavy vs Light Bullets in Short-Barreled 9-mm Pistols

"Short barrel" usually means less than 4", generally 3.5" or so. Are you shooting a revolver or auto? Revolvers lose the most energy, and will hit lower to POA, with lighter bullets. Most modern pistol rounds are built around the 4-5" auto, and, all other things being equal...

Re: TX: Pizza Hut gal rousts robbers with mezzaluna

Three guys with a crowbar invade Pizza Hut to rob it. One guy goes into the kitchen and assaults a female employee who is holding a "mezzaluna-type pizza cutter" (basically a sword-size knife with a big curved belly and a handle on each end), dragging the employee and the cutter to the fl...
