Re: Gun rusting after one day

Just my opinion, but I had my carry gun plated with something specifically to prevent rust (I used Black T). There are many coatings to choose from.

Re: Medical accessories

I always carry a large BandAide in my wallet. Does that count?

Re: Wet tumbling without pins

I have been cleaning without pins for a couple of years now. I do not have a tumbler. I have a Dillon media separator, and the plastic tube that comes with it. CM-500. I fill the basket with brass, and the bucket with water. Add a little car soap and a little citric acid. Spin the handle a few times...

Re: Iran: Ayatollah demands Americas disarm.

I don't know if you meant it that way, but those words were supposedly attributed to the Spartans defending Sparta from the Persians, who are the modern day Iranians.

Kind of ironic.

River bottoms are state owned, and I have never been hassled there, but it has been a few years.

Re: Target size to distance formula?

If you want to pull out your slide rule, the tangent of the angle is the ratio of the target height to distance.

Re: Questions About LEO's Asking For ID's When I'm Simply Passenger

Abe, this has come up in the past. I believe the consensus is that you do not have to show an i.d. unless you are driving, or carrying a pistol. I also think you must identify yourself (verbally) when asked, and you cannot lie about it. There was a leo on here at one time who claimed he would "make ...

Re: Benchmade Auto OTF knife

The only disappointment I have with the Infidel is the way they sharpened the blade on one side only. That is, both cutting edges were sharp, but they were only ground on one side of the blade, like a Tanto maybe.

That was soon corrected.

Re: Tritium Sights - How Effective?

I've never had much luck with flashlights and sights. Living out in the country, I've had some experience with this. Like having to put down a sick coyote before daylight with my dogs trying to get at it. It was hard to get the flashlight to illuminate my .45 auto sights AND the coyote. Meanwhile k...

Re: Tritium Sights - How Effective?

For my tritium sights to be visible, it has to be dark enough that I can't tell what I am shooting at.

They are brighter when they are new, and need to be replaced every 10 years or so.

Just my 2 cents.

Re: Honor guard pistol BEWARE

I'm not sure what to think. Without a doubt, I prefer drop safe guns, but I also don't have any problems with my Series 70 Colt. Maybe I should, but I don't. I've had that gun since it was new in the box in the 70's. It's got a 3.5 pound trigger, as measured with an electronic trigger gauge, just l...
