I'm a pretty small framed guy and I'm finding it hard to conceal my bersa thunder 380 without printing. My normal attire is jeans and a t-...

Re: Gun control debate history

The article is reads as a synopsis of a book published a few years ago called The Second Amendment: A Biography by Michael Waldman. Follows the same outline and stresses the same events. Funny. Looks to me like the outline and language was lifted from an October 2017 podcast by More Perfect called ...

Re: NRA Life Membership reduced price thru March

Did you fire Heston yet? acronym 3/14/2018 12:14 PM Last time I checked, he was STILL dead (April 5, 2008), so you can probably let go and move on to other things now..... Ooops. Sorry. I thought everyone knew he retired as NRA president (death a couple years later). After he was replaced, I was ba...

Re: NRA Life Membership reduced price thru March

I see they've extended the "sale" period on Life Memberships ... No-brainer here folks, Life Membership for less than the price of two cases of ammo..... The NRA needs to earn my membership. Every year. I won't elect a life time representative of my views. I cut them off for 10 years after Michael ...

Re: Nervous about my proficiency test next week

Hi all, Could you tell me how the proficiency will go to ease my stress? I am a novice. I’ve shot a gun about 3 times in my life. I know the basics of how to load, reload, basic gun safety. Will the test Procter ask me to demonstrate anything special? Also, Im not terribly accurate with my Ruger lc...

I'm extremely saddened today. He might have lost me with this. Actually, unless there is a strategy here that I can't see, he did lose me with this. I'm very sorry to be "that guy," but I wasn't paying complete attention. The last time I looked at this, Fix NICS was tied to National Reciprocity. Di...

Re: Bullet penetration

I am very curious as to where and why the 12” mark in bullet penetration is the standard. Most YouTube ammo tests I have seen all say you must have 12” to 14” to be effective. #1 where did they get that data? #2 have they even been in a self defense situtation where 12” wasn’t enough? And #3 unless...

Re: Recommend an AR at $700 max

I keep seeing Radical Firearms from just southwest of Houston. Anyone have any experience? Price point and features are right. I've read some not so good things about Radical Firearms. Thats a shame too, since I really like supporting Texas companies. https://primaryandsecondary.com/candid-and-unbi...
