I ordered an RDR Holster. I just received a call from Jeff of RDI. He was knowledgeable about the different variants of my pistol. He asked how I carried the pistol ( cocked and locked) , asked if the safety was an ambi or just strong side and we discussed 3 options for me to choose from. He gave me...

Re: Solar Power

I have looked into this as a way to get off the grid. From what I have discovered, if you want to get off the grid, solar, wind, and batteries are needed. To run a normal home, expect to spend $100k. On top of that, you have to replace and maintain the batteries and if you want the best performance...

Re: Don't need to show LTC to LEO when carrying.

I received my CHL in 2009. My instructor was adiment that the law was just changed and a CHL was no longer required to be shown when you presented your ID. He also stated we did not have to show an ID unless we were being arrested. I went through two fairly serious stops and never revealed I was CCi...

Re: If Cops Won't, then Give Me a Chance

I found it interesting that the OP found an ex Police Officer that was willing to admit that Police Officers are just Civilians with guns. I have known a lot of POs in the past and that was definitely their opinion.

Re: My 1911 is in the stable!

I know my Springfield 1911 is not a "high-end" 1911 so I looked at some higher-end Kimbers and Smith and Wesson Performance---and promptly went into sticker shock. I think I will follow flechero's advice and figure out how to "tune" my extractor. However, I looked over on Youtube and saw one guy wi...

Re: Brass/steel/aluminum ammo. Pros and cons of each?

If you reload, pull the bullets. burn the powder and toss the casings. You could pop the primers in a vise using a hammer and nail if you are so inclined.

I have two Rockchuckers and a slew of other RCBS equipment. Never have needed CS. They have been flawless. I also have a Champion which is a beast.

Re: Brass/steel/aluminum ammo. Pros and cons of each?

I ordered brass from Midway and they sent me steel (last time I ordered ammo from Midway). Became gummy when hot. My Mini did not seem to mind. I just did a good cleaning every time I shot steel. Something I don’t always do with brass.

Re: My 1911 is in the stable!

Keep us posted. I really like my Sr1911 and also like my VM2. One thing I did add to my SR1911 was this Fast safety system. You can carry with hammer down, round chambered, flick the safety off which recocks the hammer. Have this on my 1911 and Browning HP. https://bhspringsolutions.com/141-series-...

Re: Fentanyl laced flyers posted on HCSO vehicle

Hmmm...color me skeptical. ThIs has urban legend/hoax/misinterpretation written all over it. Snopes, in discussing a similar hoax/panic, the Green incident, points out "Neither fentanyl nor even its uber-potent cousin carfentanil (two of the most powerful opioids known to humanity) can cause clinic...
