Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

philip964, I read the links and from what I can ascertain, folks are tying themselves into PC knots over pretty much zero. Everyone can find something to be offended about, eh? Let's see: Hey, I know I'm offended for being singled out as a 'white guy'. And, and, don't remind me I'm old, that's sexi...

Re: New house + insurance

I'm in the final throes of buying a house and I found it interesting when going through the home-insurance policy that they cover a LOT of stuff - but by default they will only insure $2,000 worth of firearms. I have a healthy little collection so I'm going to have to bump up some extra coverage, b...

I just saw that someone sent envelopes containing Ricin to the Pentagon. The two suspicious envelopes were addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and to Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral John Richardson, the official told CNN. There was also an incident that reported that a white powder was...

Re: Legit or gimmick?

I've come full-circle, coming back to using OEM springs, with a stainless rod. This is my set up (and likely to remain so)http://btguiderods.com/ I tried Sprinco, when they first came out, then again, a few years later. Sometimes good, but unless I consistently shot +P, I'd get short-strokes. Duali...

Re: What OWB holster do you wear with your Glock 21?

I don't own a Glock of any model. I use a Fobus OWB for my Beretta PX-4 SC.
It is a paddle holster and I like it a lot.
I am not certain if they make a belt version for this gun. I also have one of these, but I prefer the paddle.

Re: Legit or gimmick?

From what he told me, during our brief conversation, is that there is a heavier spring,, at the rear, that prevents "frame slap" He did, not mention, that it was adjustable, but looking at the photos,on the site, it appears that it may be. That spring at the rear is actually a stack of Bellville wa...

Re: Trying to buy a Ruger 10/22 is very trying!

My BX Trigger arrived today. I had trouble figuring out what size allen screw held the barrel band (9/64 BTW) but after I got it off and the action removed it was easy peasy. I wanted to check before and after trigger pull but I couldn't find my scale. It is discernibly lighter. Waiting for the rai...

Re: Shooting In Abilene

An update states that the two suspects bonded out with $25,000 each. Sept 21, 2018 a court increased their bond to $250,000 each and both men were taken into custody. https://www.reporternews.com/story/news/crime/2018/09/21/father-and-son-john-miller-michael-miller-arron-howard-viral-video-shooting-...
