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

Yes, brass is the better choice for ammo. It is more accurate, cause the brass will expand in chamber, therefor giving a better burn and compression, plus it's reloadable. For steel case, don't believe the stories of how it will ruin you firearm or puts excessive wear on it. For normal shooting, thi...

Re: My first AR

For just plinking, you can go with some steel cased .223 ammo like TulAmmo or Monarch, both are about $5 per 20rnd box. If you want to go a little bit better ammo, American Eagle is about $7 per 20. Wolf performance steel case is another pretty good round, cost about the same as TulAmmo and Monarch.

Re: Mosquito control - cheap

Yup, same exact thing you can make with bottles, but charge you $20 for it. My BIL bought some couple months ago, seemed to work ok, as far as keeping the skeeters on the other side of the yard, don't know about eradicating them though.

Re: TX: Houston 5 YO gets gun for mom to shoot dad.

All of my rifles are hanging on a wall rack, as they did when I was a kid. If you raise your kids to respect firearms, majority of the time you won't have issues. Other than my AR and 30.30, my kids can go grab any firearm and head off down in the woods or friends place. I know, without a doubt, tha...

Re: Illegal Kitty Keychain

That keychain was made specifically as a weapon, like brass knuckles or dagger, not a keychain that "could" be used as one. While a dagger is legal, the resemblance of brass knuckles is not. If someone wants wants a similar item, just get a mini dagger and attach to keychain, purse or even carried i...

Re: Blank Subpeona...Constitutional?

Some states might can get away with a blank Subpoena, but not in Texas. The Subpoena must be completely filled by the court or DA. https://www.serve-now.com/resources/process-serving-laws/texas#176 Edit: While some states may issue a blank Subpoena, it MUST be completely filled out BEFORE being serv...

Re: Software update - More information

The report post error should be an easy fix, there is just a conflict in the templates. If phpbb support cant fix it, then they are choosing not to. The way phpbb works, is that you have one main php file and a bunch of corresponding php files for each action of the forum. When one action is not beh...

Re: Three free one year NRA memberships available

We still had enough for three left? You new members need to speak up. BTW, I know folk here are buying firearms on a regular basis. Sometimes with the firearm, there is a card with a code to get a free one year NRA membership. If someone gets one and doesn't have a need for it and not given it away,...

Re: Ltc question

Dunno, but I think it was amended earlier than that. In Sept of 2017, when I took my LTC course, the expiration of the LTC-100 was one year then.

This is the same on every forum. I co-owned a forum of several thousand members, which only about +- 200 actually participated. Most sign up, get what they need and are never seen again.

Re: Blunt Force Trauma Lethality Posted by karlrehn

Yup. Don't know if it was here or another forum, but a retired (or off duty) officer got punched in the face one time and died as a result. Of course he was up in age, but could happen to anyone at any age. Good write and read.
