Re: Banks, credit-card cos. explore tracking gun purchases

I don't know how others think about this absurd bank proposal(discussion, etc), but this concerns me MUCH more than the liberal's efforts to pass even more gun control laws(that has proven over time to be ineffective). This would create a national gun ownership database, which IMO is one step closer...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Well fiddlesticks! I missed it AGAIN! And I soooo wanted to make this one, as I'm in Arlington, albeit far north Arlington. :grumble

Hopefully next time. And it looks like you all had a great time! :thumbs2:

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Bumping this up again. We've got just one weekend left between now and the 15th. Someone needs to nail down a location. :) :iagree: I wish more people would chime in. :totap: My vote is for Esperanza's bakery or Old South Pancake House. Both in Ft. Worth. What say you, you all? I'm open to suggesti...

Re: This Texting While Driving is really starting to get to me!

I remember sliderules in high school and early college, AND being slightly intimidated by my first calculator in college - a TI SR-50. As do I. I still have my Keuffel & Esser 4081-3 Log Log Decitrig Duplex Slide Rule from high school, still in the original holster & belt loop. I love that thing! :...

Re: Mossberg Shockwave

In PawPaw's video(thank you!) Clint was holding the gun as if there were an imaginary buttstock on it. Make sense to me. It's certainly not a handheld gun, unless you have super strength to handle the recoil. No, I think I'll pass on it.

Re: FL: Man sits down in car, shoots himself in the genitials

From the article: "She said the man told her he sat on the gun, which went off accidentally."

How is that possible without shooting himself in the butt first? That's an awfully weird angle the barrel was pointed! :lol:

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Well I can think of 3 right off the top of my head that serves great breakfasts: 1. Old South Pancake House which is on University Drive, just south of I-30 in Ft. Worth - http://www.olsouthpancakehouse.com/ This is where I learned to put sour cream on my waffles, and the only breakfast restaurant t...

Re: Stovepiping on Colt Gov't 380

Thanks everybody for the replies. :tiphat: First off, Pawpaw, many thanks for showing me what a stovepipe looks like! :oops: I used totally incorrect terminology in attempting to describe my problem. It's definitely not that. It's not a failure to eject issue at all. Mupepe, good question. The failu...

Stovepiping on Colt Gov't 380

The title says it all(I think that's the correct term for my problem). It's creating failure to feed issues. But only on rounds 6 & 7(the little magazine has max capacity of 7 rounds. On rounds 6 & 7, when attempting to chamber, the slide forces the round to take a nosedive into the front of the mag...
