Re: Shooting In Abilene

The testosterone and stupidity were flowing like wine! This will be an interesting case to follow. I can't see the detail some of you folks are describing. I can't see what the dead man did to prompt the father or son to shoot. As with most videos, it didn't start at the beginning, so we don't know...

Re: be cautious traveling to Juarez

I just came back from visiting one of our store locations in Tornillo. Every one that I talked to that have lived there forever said they will not go across the river. Many of the houses nearest the river in the little border towns have fences all the way around. At dark they make the kids come in a...

Re: I bought body armor now what?

My wife and I both have a set of hard plates. I getting my wife's set up for stashing in her hidey-hole at school. She can fall back into her storage room with her kids, get them secured, don her vest, and cover the door. She won't be moving much with it so the weight won't be a big issue. I have mi...

End of the caliber wars

I found this on a different website. Backs up what most of us really know. Shot placement and if you know you're going to get in a gunfight then bring a long gun.

Re: Part 1 - What Color?

In context of carrying a long gun "covertly," pick a handful of clothing covers (think ripstop wind breakers, or FrogTogs-type light rain gear), and a coloring on your long gun that fades nicely into those. The visual image then becomes more innocuous, what you're carrying blends with you, not nece...

Re: Part 1 - What Color?

Even though grey man does not mean you wear grey all the time, I didn't want to put any color out there to skew anyone's thinking thus I didn't want to refer to "grey". We've jumped pretty quickly to "camo" with splotches and patterns. Something was hoping to stay away from initially, thus the Part ...

Re: Part 1 - What Color?

Being familiar with and trying to practice the grey man theory I was holding off on it to try not to introduce a color bias. The grey man is what got me to thinking about weapon color. I agree, a black gun stands out and not any color will be best in all cases but is there a middle ground? I think t...

Part 1 - What Color?

I started pondering as sometimes I do and pondered this up, what color(s) is/are the most neutral, blends with all but extreme environments (i.e. totally white well-lit room), inside a building to out in the open, under bright light to inky darkness, no matter what color of clothes I wear? This has ...
