Re: Mayors Roundtable

Forget about it. Kay is rock solid RHINO. Through some reading she was split on running for her current seat as a D or R. Do some research. If we are burning it all down then I would vote for the oposision this time. Has she ever that anyone can recall put her neck out for us or any conservative cau...

Re: An auction to watch CK0001 Chris Kyle 1911 Legend

Bid jumped over 4k yesterday on one bid. aviers1 then bumps it by 25 the minimum. No dog in the fight other than observable notoriety. I would get one of the 1k production units aside from funds.

State Democrat Party referenda topics.(mischief)

Maybe a catch thread for all the mischief the democrats are steaming over. Also included the statewide results from the primary via unofficial results posted at the SOS website. These items as a whole do not read as draconian guaranties (constitutional amendments) or strict statutes. But they can le...

Re: Custom Magazine for 1911?

For testing and completing more test cycles to reach the last round you might load the mag short with only 3 rounds. This way you can get 33 successes if that mag is the fix. From the descriptions I think this may be primarily from the slide stop to follower interface stopping stopping the slide sho...

Re: Th story behind Apple refusing to work with FBI

The target Iphone is a strawman. The county owns the phone. The county infact uses a mobile device management app from their servers. MDM depending on the tools implemented could be used by the county to isolate this phone and remove all password protections currently in use if they know how to use ...

Re: Dead for this session?

CHL trainers are crony capitalists in regard to being protected and insured to have business as long as a customer base is mandated by statute. Responsible people will seek education. Irresponsible people will still teach the kids while cleaning guns on the coffee table after 3 or 4 beers. After hol...

Re: Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

Brilliant as in crazy like a fox. The health care overhaul seems to them to be now or never and they will be hard pressed to accept that it will never happen here. No sitting congressman will be safe if this passes and every effort is given to repeal. Most of the fed code could use some unwinding. M...
