Re: Is the SIG P365 fixed?

One word, begins with a "G"... [oh] Geez..... oh that wasn't it? "Great" It's fixed? "Good" as in GTG? Or are you being a bit more sinister, as in a reference to "Gaston" and his little single stack plastic gun that although under reported - had multiple generations of mags, a frame change and othe...

Re: Don't Trust Your Life on Magpull Glock Mags

I have now had two Magpull magazines repeatedly fail on me by not holding onto the top round well enough - resulting in a stove pipe of a fresh round. I kept a known bad mag for range use... it forces me to fix stoppages on occasion without knowing that a dummy round is in a particular mag. Not reg...

Re: Being that guy..

Let me start by saying that I do open carry on occasion. When open carry first became law, I OC’d about half the time. But as time has passed, I have tended to CC more often than not. That’s just a personal sartorial preference, but I am no less supportive of the right of people to open carry if th...

I don’t think being confrontational and aggravating people really helps the cause of encouraging the broader population to be trusting of license holders.

Re: What do you use to monitor safe humidity?

I use a goldenrod- not sure what humidity level it holds but when I moved to central Tx I had to leave my safe in a barn/shop on the in-laws farm... just a plain goldenrod for 8 years and not a hint of rust, even on blued guns. And there was a 4 yr period that I didn't open it so no periodic wipe do...

Re: DWI Charge

Probably when you said 2 beers it was all over... friend of mine was a deputy and he said almost every drunk he ever stopped said "2 beers"

Good luck, I hope the worst is over

Re: Gun control hearing in the Senate

Heck, 78% of people in TX approve of a Red Flag law for TX. May need to look up North somewhere. Where did that stat come from? That seems awfully high to me Polled reported on Austin news channel tonight. Showed 48% support expanded background checks. Stats like that are easy to find in a battered...

Re: Reloading in an Apartment

Powder and primers are very stable... keep them away from an open heat source and a kid with a hammer and you are pretty safe. There are things under your sink and in your laundry room just as or more hazardous. I keep both on a dedicated shelf. Probably the hardest thing in an apt is a solid bench/...

Re: Anyone have this issue....

I prefer a horizontal carry for my spare mag. Been using a MagHolder for a while now. Pretty happy with it. I've been using Magholder for several years now, I have them for each mag style that i have a carry gun for. By far the most comfortable I've ever used... For classes and other range work I u...

Re: Benchmade responds

That would be me. The NRA is no longer a viable solution to gun rights activism. The amount of compromise they allow, simply does not meet my interpretation of “... shall not be infringed.” The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Gun Owners of America (GOA) are great 2nd ammendment supporting organ...
