update

I called S&W about it and as soon as I said Shield 45 was dropping mags, the guy asked how many mags I have... then asked for my address to send me all new ones. Spent 10 minutes on hold but only 60 seconds to get all new followers. I hope not to need customer service anymore but they are polite and...

Re: "Gritty" trigger on M&P 2.0 Compact

If you haven't- clean it. It could have been dirty or had some debris in their from the factory. I note smoother triggers on almost every gun after a good clean and lube.

Re: My Name is anygunanywhere....

My problem with alcohol was not that I had to drink every day. Mine was that once I started I could not stop. I started blacking out. I also threatened suicide. My cravings have been along the lines of when I end my work day I crave a drink or when we eat dinner out. Sharing our favorite wines was ...

Re: Talk with the kids

I've carried since long before I had a son... he never knew differently (if Dad has pants on, he has a gun on) so it was not a "new topic" to discuss. As he got older, I reinforced that my CC is hidden, just like my underwear- and we don't talk about underwear in public either. :lol: Here is a great...

Yesterday was my one month of sobriety. I received my one month chip at last night's meeting.

Praise God!
Praise God, indeed! Congrats, brother! Keep your guard up, :tiphat:

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I'm hoping for a dem on dem bloodbath, much worse than we saw with the Rep's. Maybe they will damage each other beyond repair. Of course, I wonder who bought the dem fix this time around????

The man was shot in the groin and they are going to file charges. That's ridiculous. I could see it if he shot someone else, but I think he has been penalized enough.

Well played, Sir! :lol:

Re: Shield 45 dropping mags- fixed

So, the one that the arrow is pointing to has the correct relief cut? I need to check my Shield 45 mags too. Thanks for the info. Joe Correct. Apparently it's close enough that some without the relief cuts still function fine. Take a mag and load 3 rounds into if... that puts the follower at the wi...

Shield 45 dropping mags- fixed

I bought a new Shield 45 a couple months ago, with hopes of making it my new EDC for discreet/dress days. Anyway, it shot well but was dropping mags midway through a string. :shock: I assumed it was either a bad mag release or lesser chance but still possible, that being a lefty, I was bumping the m...

Re: TX:7 year old girl murdered in Wallisville in drive by shooting or road rage

Now that we know what a white guy with blue eyes looks like, I wonder if Shiela "stupid" Jackson-Lee still wants this prosecuted as a hate crime? I wonder if the instagram tipster still gets the $100K reward if the actual murderer doesn't have blue eyes. I hope they pay- the tip got the real killer...

Re: Damage to vehicles because of your gun

I would suggest a seat cover- the good ones do well in the heat, with moisture and with abrasion. I do carry further back now than I used to in part due to the ergonomics of my truck seats. I also get in an out with a forward movement before sliding in to the seat- so that I sit and then slide back ...

Re: Government shutdown

I haven't even noticed the shutdown - except for a pic of a trash can that needed emptying, on the national news. :eek6

Turns out they were right- Non-essential personnel are really not essential. :lol: Looks like a way to cut some costs to me.
