Re: UT: Screwdriver v Gun, Homework Assignment

Police should never be charged for doing something legal that happens to be outside their training or "common practice" This officer had above average marksmanship skills, which is why he would not recommend others taking the shot. Round #3 went into the ground, his background was clear. That's the...

Re: UT: Screwdriver v Gun, Homework Assignment

"Corporal Dunn confirmed that this type of shooting is inconsistent with his training and that he would not recommend that others take this kind of a shot ." The bolded portions are really the end of the story. "Like last time..." indicates an operational pattern of exceeding training standards and...

Re: Need help on suggestions for elderly parents for hd

My parents keep a Mossberg 500 in .410 for HD, and shoot a good bit. I'll step outside the shotgun box, for a minute, and suggest a Ruger PC9, with 15 round mags. Very mild, much faster reloads(even for the not-so-gun-savvy), and a smith could take an extra 1" off the stock and fit a new pad, if nee...

Re: Part 1 - What Color?

In context of carrying a long gun "covertly," pick a handful of clothing covers (think ripstop wind breakers, or FrogTogs-type light rain gear), and a coloring on your long gun that fades nicely into those. The visual image then becomes more innocuous, what you're carrying blends with you, not neces...

Re: The Latest: Documents: Man training kids for school shooting

We are in love with the form of law and the process of, "justice". We have neither heart nor stomach for the fair and equal application of either. You cannot sustain anarchists at the expense of society, and expect society to survive.

Re: "The Bleeding Edge" is about medical implants

I've worked a ~$30 million device study (those are the costs I was aware of), that went 8 years beyond the anticipated closure date because they could not prove statistically superior efficacy. For some participants, it was a genuine, "Silver Bullet," with dramatic impact and improvement. For others...

Re: "The Bleeding Edge" is about medical implants

I have(watched it), for the obvious reasons. There are some honest and reasonable criticisms, painfully overshadowed, however, by ANTIFA rhetoric. About every 5 years, I pay ~$2000 for a new insulin pump, out-of-pocket. I work, full-time, pay my taxes and insurance. I did not choose my situation, or...

Re: "The Bleeding Edge" is about medical implants

As far as FDA approval of medical devices, I actually went through that process with the FDA and hold several 510(K) forms for devices that I manufactured for use in the operating room. All part of a company that I previously owned. The process is fairly difficult but not impossible although it can...

Having worked in clinical research for just under 15 years: 1) We cheered the gunshop owner who ran off Borat and did not participate in his, "comic-umentary." Why?
