Re: ND at the gun club today during monthly pistol match

Someone told me once, there are no ACCIDENTAL discharges. Only negligent ones. Point being when dealing with a tool such as a firearm, you shouldn't allow any accidents. I feel that's true. In the chemical plants our safety culture says ALL accidents are preventable, both with proper training and p...

Re: Per USA Today the USA has one of the highest murder rates in the world

If you remove the democrat strongholds like detroit, LA, baltimore etc. We have one of the lowest. It's the cities that have the worst gun laws where all the murders happen.

Re: Strong side carry results in opposite side soreness

Yeah that's more or less my problem. I'm a little fat and like I said if I go up a pant size then my pants are too damn big. Even if I don't wear the belt the pants still press in right there on my hip bone. The only thing I can do is unbuckle my belt and unbutton my pants while I'm sitting and driv...

Re: Strong side carry results in opposite side soreness

The fact that you have bruising suggests that you are either leaning to relieve pressure or sitting against chair arms or something... try to pay attention to how you sitting and moving in and out of the chairs. No, the bruising is on the opposite side of my waist from the holster. I have a large r...

Re: Strong side carry results in opposite side soreness

I used to experience similar issues when I carried IWB. Switching to OWB and using lighter weight carry guns helped alot (aluminum framed 1911 vs steel, etc). I also started using a "snap" holster that is easy to take on and off. This helps with the driving situation and also was a huge help when I...

Strong side carry results in opposite side soreness

Hello all I have been carrying strong side for the better part of two or three years I guess, and in the last six months or so I'm noticing that if I spend a lot of my day sitting, towards the end of the day the skin over my hip bone around my waist area on the left hand side of my body is bruised a...

Re: "militias"

make no mistake, we are in fact in civil war. Agreed. It hasn't become a shooting war yet, but we've been involved in a cold civil war for a while now. Oh, but it has. In those terms, so far it's been limited to minor skirmishes testing each other's strengths and weaknesses. A young, relatively unt...

Re: Defending against someone who is mentally ill

The topic begs the question of how would you know a person threatening you is mentally ill? I suppose one could make the argument that someone who is out of their mind on drugs. But I generally think someone acting erratically and not "normal" is usually pretty obvious. But anger and rage tends to ...

But I figure just because someone has mental issues doesn't make them anymore dangerous.
Did you mean to say 'any less dangerous'?
FTFY lol.

Re: Defending against someone who is mentally ill

Stop the threat - my safety / wellbeing is at the top of my list...someone that's mentally ill may actually be *more* of a threat than a "normal" person. Many folks with mental illness are violent (and many are not). My best bud was bi-polar. When he was violent it was BAD. :tiphat: This is pretty ...

Defending against someone who is mentally ill

Recently I watched a video making the rounds online. A man in military fatigues elbows and punches a (black oh no) man a few times after the dude spit on his truck and smacked the door with a skateboard (are skateboards the weapon of choice for some people now?) After the assault on the vehicle he p...

Re: Does anybody have experience with Telegram?

I'm more willing to give telegram my # than any of the others. They don't keep any records and aren't run by lunatics like discord who actively ban peoples accounts for daring to disparage blm while actively condoning and even mildly supporting pedophiles. I use it for a group of people in my city t...

Re: How liberals think bullets are stopped

This is obviously satire. However, using a large volume container full of water and sticking it on muzzle would be more effective.
