How do you like your hammerless 642?
If the Glock 43 didn't exist it would be my go to AIWB option in shorts and a t shirt. :biggrinjester:

Re: Gunsmiths in Killeen, Temple area>

Hammerdown Sports in Belton is run by a good guy who’s done quality work for me in the past. Very affordable too.

Re: Any other wheel gun carriers around?

I spent last year (2019) primarily carrying and shooting wheel guns. I’m my 30s and started with semi autos so I was wheel gun curious, especially given how everyone always claims they can make you a better pistol shooter and how reliable they are. I found that if you shoot them enough they’re no mo...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

So how many of you guys carry, or plan to carry with a RDS mounted on your carry-gun? The points made about putting the time in to get acclimated certainly seem valid, as far as range use. In a defensive shooting scenario, can you get a shot on target as quickly? ;-) You need to read the Sage Dynam...

6.5 Grendel project

I've been wanting to put together a 6.5 Grendel for a while. After how much I've enjoyed my lightweight 5.56 AR, instead of putting together a heavy long range precision 6.5 rig (though I'll probably do that eventually too), I decided to make a lightweight 6.5 Grendel SBR. Based on how everything we...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

My suggestion for those trying out pistol red dots is to give it time. I was less than thrilled with the first couple of range trips. I've decided to stick with the red dot for the next six months and I'm finally starting to turn the corner after about 700 rounds. Absolutely correct. It takes time ...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

I’m a fan.

The simultaneously most hurtful/true thing I’ve heard about shooting red dot equipped pistols is “There are no more hard shots, just bad trigger presses”.

Re: Been too long

Hey, where do you shooting idpa and uspsa around here? Good to have you back. :tiphat: We are spoiled here in central Texas. These days I’m usually only attending the Temple Gun Club matches (idpa and uspsa once a month, Steel challenge Thursday nights in the summer). Copperas cove also has idpa an...

Re: Been too long

Here’s a copy of a post I did for a “dinner pic” Arfcom style. Only I made breakfast tacos, so mine is a breakfast pic. Hope you enjoy, Bill. Step 1: dice up a yukon gold potato. Boil in water with vinegar/salt for 5 minutes. Just enough to get the insides a little fluffy. https://i.imgur.com/cnpgpx...

Re: Been too long

Welcome back to the forum. I am doing okay. Had some health issues, but they are under control. In addition to the CHL topics I have missed your cooking and your music posts. I am not nearly as active posting as I used to be. I guess, I don't have as much new to say. ;) Good to see you still postin...

Catch us up on all your blessings. Gladly. :biggrinjester: Wife finished her schooling and got a job, and most importantly....I got a promotion to "Dad" in 2018. Still in Temple.

Been too long

How’s everybody doing?

Haven’t posted much in a long time. Had issues for a while where I had to log on every single time I visited the forum and got tired of doing it....but figured it was time to try again and reconnect with some of my fellow Texans. :mrgreen:

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

It would be impactful if enough of us showed up. And the actors who tend to give the rest of us a bad name stay home instead of making scenes with elected officials. I’m one of those guys who raged against the OCT antics and the dumb way they handled themselves and representing gun owners. But hone...

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

2. Why do we not start having a TSRA day each legislative session here in Texas? I think it would be an outstanding thing for them to start now, before we end up in a similar situation to Virginia. Everybody meet up outside, folks go visit their reps from their area and say hello, express support o...

Really disappointed they discontinued the SA.

Mine is more accurate than either my Shadow or Shadow 2.
