Re: Sniper hits ISIS Commander from 1.5 miles

I wonder how many of his troops decided, there are easier ways to make a living, after he suddenly exploded in front of them? From that distance you would probably never hear the shot. :eek6 :leaving Somewhat like Quannah Parker when Billy Dixon shot Parker's medicine man off of his horse at about ...

Re: Need help on suggestions for elderly parents for hd

Also stepping out of the shotgun box you can get a S&W MP15 Sport for right around your budget. If you are willing to watch gunbroker you could probably get it for less. An adjustable stock AR15 gets pretty short. An extra $50 and you can put a Bushnell TRS-25 on it. That is 30 rounds, and I can't ...

Re: Need help on suggestions for elderly parents for hd

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 needed (you can do it yourself, without much trouble, too). I know that...

Re: Need help on suggestions for elderly parents for hd

If the budget could be stretched by $150 to $200, I'd suggest a Henry 357 lever action. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/781517114 Chas. That's a really intresting options, it may be short enugh for my mom, do you know if its "youth size" appropriate? I don't believe so; not in the centerfire rifles....

Re: Classical case of Suicide by a cop

It's a sad state of affairs when an officer feels it's necessary to run away from a non-compliant subject who is attacking the officer. Being knocked to the ground could have resulted in the officer being disarmed and killed with his own gun. If you read the article, you will see the numerous factor...

Re: Someone push me...

I should have the repeater up by October and I'll get the TexasCHLforum net going soon after. I'll have it available by AllStar, Echlink and possibly IRLP so anyone can get in regardless of their location. Chas. Not to hijack the thread, but where will you locate the repeater? Would be nice to use ...

Re: TX: Gun-toting grandma shoots man accused of exposing himself in SE Houston

Ch. 13's title is more than a little misleading. She shot him because he tried to get into her home.

Re: NY: Man murdered with a single punch.

my issue here is if victim tapped on the window, the window must have been closed. It's not even certain he tapped on the window. His brother said he "probably" tapped on the window. Even if he did, that's hardly justification for an assault. The driver who committed the deadly assault apparently w...

Re: Teens died about 87 and 337 feet from man who said he fired in self-defense

Keep in mind that was in Michigan and Michigan has a very specific definition on self defense, including the 21 foot rule. What is legal in Texas will get you life behind bars in Michigan. For better or worse, Texas doesn't have the fleeing felon rule. Texas does not allow the shooting of all fleei...
