Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

It's wrong when crowds of idiots surround Cruz or McConnell at dinner and it's wrong when one idiot shows up at a Bonnen's door. Those activities are personal and outside of acceptable political discourse and should be mocked and punished as necessary. Bonnen's lies are immaterial to McNutt's foolis...

Re: Burris FastFire 3 vs EOTech 512

I only use FF3s now. My Sig killed a Docter 3, while the FF3 rides it like a champ. It also did fine on a Super Redhawk .44 with a 9.5" bbl and hot 300 grain handloads. I like great glass, but a reflex doesn't need to be in the same league as a 24x long range scope, so durability decides for me.

Re: Kamala Harris would proclaim new gun-control measures through executive orders (presidential decrees?)

The enemy of incrementalism isn't blanket opposition, it's a firm stance. In a democracy, a firm stance that all gun control is wrong is unsustainable and has no historical precedent. The Democrats' incrementalism on gun control must be consistently pointed out as a lie. Their current assault weapon...

Re: Would you shoot?

Again, we never get the full story initially or a complete understanding of who / what started it. The media seems to conveniently forget those details. Just like the Deep Ellum incident where we saw the woman being beaten, they neglect to tell us what preceded. In the Deep Ellum incident the woman...

The purpose of gun control isn't guns, but control.

Re: Electricity Providers

I love griddy. You are never paying $0.015/kwh, and TDU delivery charges will be 50% or more of your cost per kwh. My rate last month was 11.5/kWh (credit card processing fee added a lot), this month to date is 9.5. I use 300-450 kwh/month in the winter with gas heat and 1000-1300/month from June to...

Re: Reloading Brass Substitute Safe?

If you're reloading a caliber that requires you to trim a parent case to length and then size a new neck into it, case wall thickness variation can matter. Otherwise you're very unlikely to run into issues. For shotgun hulls, manufacturer absolutely matters, but I'm just repeating what I've heard we...

Re: US Army selects new 9mm

I never said it is supposed to be a combat weapon. I was merely questioning replacement of a 9mm pistol with a 9mm submachine gun. Would you rather face off with a guy armed with a pistol or an SMG? These are for protection details. They need small, concealable arms that can make an attacker either...

Re: Thomas Sowell on gun control

Economists who treat people as thinking individuals are uniformly hated by their own kind. A "How dare you suggest that our models are imperfect?" sort of thing.

Re: US Army selects new 9mm

I think that SMGs are a lot of fun to shoot. I don't understand where one would use one in a combat setting given the options now available. Size is the overriding concern? Use a pistol with a longer barrel and/or bigger caliber. My X5 in .357 Sig WITH A CAN MOUNTED is 2-4" shorter than an MP5 and c...

Re: New Zealand: 2 separate mass shootings at Mosques kill 50

Blaming The Jews for the actions of a White Nationalist? Isn't that a half step away from blaming Hitler and WWII on Jews? I know that it's just nonsensical anti-Semitism, but you'd think that even racists would want to appear to be somewhat sane?

Re: Salon wants to ban bolt-action rifles

Someone needs to show him a list of Wimbledon Cup winners so that he gets it. With regard to precision, the military strives to reach civilian grade (and benefits greatly from the cooperation of a huge network of active duty, veterans, and civilians). That dunce has no concept of what military grade...
