Re: Stand Alone ER's / Rip Offs or ...?

There is a difference between a stand alone ER and an Urgent Care center. I have found Urgent care centers are cheaper than ER's. NO Er should make someone wait that is having chest pain. That is a real emergency and should go to the front of the line. Get vocal if you arrive at an ER with chest pai...

Re: .22 cal LR not reliable for SD, is a .380?

Re: Best gun store in Katy Texas for chl holders

Hey howdy, so you showed chl, did they say no check ? I’ve seen they have some good deals on the Glock 19 gen 5 Yes, I just show them the LTC, fill out the paperwork, pay for it and they walk you to the front of the store and you go home and hide it from your wife. They never say "we are waiting on...

Ocean Artist, The Amazing Puffer Fish

This is about as far off topic from guns as it gets. I thought we could use a little "culture"

Suing Drug makers

Just heard that President Trump wants to sue opioid drug makers because they make a dangerous product. This sounds like a very slippery slope.

Re: I don't normally read, or quote WAPO, but......

The 9mm was paired with the 38 and the 45 was put in a group with the 10mm, .44 mag and a 7.62x39 round. I will agree that the 44, 10mm and AK-47 are more powerful than the 9mm.

Re: .38 Special S&W 640

I have a S&W 640 that I bought in 1997. It has about a 11 lb trigger pull and kicks like a mull with .357 loads. The .38 is much better. My 30 year old Daughter has a hard time pulling the trigger. Try to find a range that has loaners or rentals. Let her try several revolvers and see which one she l...
