Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Interested in pairing up a lever action rifle and revolver in same caliber. Have the lever rifle selected, need recommendations on good .357 Magnum revolvers, barrel length 3.5 to 5 inches. If I wasn't going to conceal the revolver, and if I wanted it to digest the very same .357 magnum rounds as t...

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

That's very close to the scenario that made me invest in a 6.8spc AR... Went out to the farm with my .45-70 to help my dad out and shoot a pig or two... Seeing several dozen come across the fence line when you've only 4+1 in the rifle and 6 .44 Mag in a revolver isn't a great feeling. It's much bet...

Re: GA: First GA School System To Arm Teachers

I've been thinking about this a little. My thoughts are that we need to stop saying that we're "arming teachers." We need to say that we are allowing teachers to be armed or carry concealed if they want and meet the requirements of the school district or whatever, but I think we need to stop saying...

And just so you know, IMHO you didn't have enough ammo.
Most definitely agree with your opinion!

This is How Custer Must Have Felt

My hunting habit these last few years involves still hunting in the National Forest. At my age, it’s the hike that matters. Getting in range of deer and pigs is kinda like what the U.S. Army experienced chasing Plains Indians - it’s hard to even see them, and when you do, they scatter. With that exp...

Re: Bloomberg running for POTUS?

Is there some reason/law that George Soros can't run for POTUS? To serve as president, one must: be a natural-born U.S. citizen of the United States; be at least thirty-five years old; be a resident in the United States for at least fourteen years. Soros was born in Hungary, so he is not eligible.

Re: MI: Man shoots kills his wife mistaking her for an intruder

I'll repeat a previous statement, who does not recognize their spouse's form in the dark? I seriously doubt anybody who claims "I didn't know it was my wife" REALLY? the fact she wasn't laying beside you in bed? Some people are truly unprepared or grossly under prepared. I'm sorry for the family an...

Re: Custer At The Alamo

Interesting.

FWIW, Custer had given up drinking by the civil war, although he had a gambling habit and other vices. Which still leaves open the question of whether he visited San Antonio. As Jake Spoon observed, “It’s a good gambling town.”

Re: Anti drone equipment

One of the most frequently asked questions in Texas regarding drone use is, “Can I shoot down a drone over my property?” The short answer, according to Lashmet, is it’s best not to. “We don’t really know exactly how the law regarding trespass is going to work. We don’t know how drones are going to ...
