Re: AR Pistol Carry...the “proper/legal” way...

There were holsters (as well as scabbards and parachute cases) for M1 Carbines, too. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61OxQsP%2BkoL._AC_SX425_.jpg https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/ba26c41d-f865-481b-89d4-470fbf08ad17_1.bbb33579de9dcc0ccdbd40535bf879dd.jpeg Fun to run with, I bet.

Re: PPK ballistics

I suspect that a bullet from a PPK would look a lot like bullets from a PP or PPK/S in the same caliber. Or from any other pistol with a similar rifling form.

Re: Body Cams?

Unfortunately for officers, the ability to select what is recorded leaves open to speculation their criteria and motivation for deciding to record - or not record.

Re: NC: Deputy leads armed mob and try’s to break into black families home

It is interesting that in mentioning the race of the family, of the neighborhood, and of the people in the mob, no mention is made of the race of the girl.

Re: .44 Magnum Cowboy Action Load for Self-Defense in a Rifle

I wonder how the semiwadcutter (SWC) load would feed through your rifle.

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

I have less time available right now, being "essential" in an "essential" business. I go in earlier because I have to help with the temperature screening at our main facility and make sure the satellites are doing it as well. I'm often among the last few out, if not the last. Our customer list for s...

Re: When America understood warship building

This reminded me of an old sci-fi novel, THE AYES OF TEXAS. Basically, an eccentric secretly updates the Battleship Texas and takes on Russia.

Re: TX: Dallas LTC holder fends off robbers at home cookout

Not that it matters, but that's just a few blocks from the Barrow family home/gas station on Singleton (then Eagle Ford Road). As in Clyde Barrow, Bonnie's boyfriend.

Re: Glock 44 - .22 LR pistol

That should sell very well.
I see it as a sub-caliber trainer more than a sport pistol.

Re: Big Shoot-Out South of Eagle Pass, Texas

I don't know. Fort Hood got shot up pretty good before they took him out. You would think a military base would have armed people everywhere. Military bases are police states, with tight weapons regulations. While most units have weapons, they are almost all tightly controlled and kept in arms room...

Re: Fort Wolters

There was a KD range there, used for National Guard training and for NRA High Power Rifle /CMP Service Rifle matches. I can't remember if it went to 1000 yards, or just 600.
