Re: If you could only carry a revolver

I have a new stainless Taurus 856 with concealed hammer, which I carry in a Barsony leather IWB (appendix carry) or a Barsony nylon pocket holster, loaded with six Gold Dot HP, with two HKS speedloaders in my left front pocket. In the AIWB position, I easily forget it's there. It's an ideal backup g...

Re: Traveling to AR, TN and KY

I'm originally from Arkansas, and the signs can be a simple sign that says to the effect "No Firearms," or more commonly, the handgun in a circle with the diagonal slash mark through it. One unique requirement in Arkansas: If you enter a private residence, you must inform the resident you're carryin...

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

Back in the mid-1970s, I owned an electroless nickel Combat Commander, and carried it in an Askins Avenger holster. It fired military surplus, Speer ash-tray hollow points, and my semi-wadcutter handloads, and it was very rare that I had a malfunction. I saw one in a local gun shop a few weeks ago, ...

Re: Favorite carry method?

My only handgun is a slim SIG P239 9mm loaded with 124gr JHP Gold Dot (non +P), and Remington Golden Saber +P in spare mags. I have four different holsters, but my favorite holster for concealed carry is my Vedder Light Tuck IWB set at forward cant at 3:15 on the right, with a DeSantis leather doubl...

Re: YouTube

I have been getting the same "whole screen" notification on my Samsung Tab E. I just hit the home key and start over. It looks fishy to me. This? Settings>Display>Full Screen Apps? Not exactly. Last night, the whole screen said something to the effect, "Update app now." It didn't say anywhere what ...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

I've started shopping at Dollar General and Brookshire's since this all started, and found that good coffee is cheaper at DG than Walmart, and single slice SPAM is only 2 cents higher than Walmart. I also found some interesting things in their $1.00 aisle. I used to visit Walmart almost every day; n...

Re: The Much-Maligned, Under-powered 30 U.S. Carbine

Charles, thank you for posting the video. I watched it all the way through, because the M1 was the rifle I fired in USAF basic training in 1964. I remember firing prone position at about 100 yards, that's all. I got a ribbon for that, and believe it was a sharpshooter or marksman, whatever was the s...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

I have already found less expensive items at Dollar General and Brookshire's, and they taste better, too. Not to mention that both these stores are less crowded and more friendly and helpful to customers. I'm well on my way to never going inside Walmart again. My main concern is not the banning of o...

Re: Two Tales of How a Concealed Handgun Protected My Wife and Me

Wallace, I appreciate your comment, but I can't really navigate your Facebook page, because I canceled my account there years ago due to privacy concerns. I do appreciate that you are publicizing true cases of when guns are used in self-defense. :tiphat:

Re: Walmart has fallen!

My favorite and least expensive coffee is only sold at Walmart (Great Value 100% Columbian). I have found that Dollar General sells some of the same name brand sundries that Walmart does, and often at a lower price. They even have special sections where everything is $1.00. I am working on replacing...

Funny Incident at Walmart Pharmacy

First of all, I’m not a police officer, and I don’t wear a badge, but I am 75 years old with white hair, and I’ve carried a concealed handgun in Arkansas and Texas for almost two decades. Today, however, my secret may have been exposed. Earlier this afternoon, I was holding onto my 88-year old frien...

Re: Suspicious package sent to CNN in an attempt to get out the Dem vote

I think it's a very real possibility the dems did this to garner votes against Conservatives. Think anti-fa... I really believe this is a distinct possibility that Antifa is involved to try to blame Republicans. From the first moment, Antifa wouldn't want to actually hurt any of these leftists. It'...
