Re: Would you go through more CHL training?

I suspect that most everyone here would agree that the level of shootings skill required to pass the CHL test is very low. I suspect that anyone who has observed a police officer trying to shoot an IPDA or USPSA course with only the training they got in the police academy will agree that the same is...

Re: Just spent a couple of weeks in Arizona.....

There are doubtless some criminals who would be deterred. There are others who will see the person openly carrying as the highest priority target. I prefer the lower profile - but I'm pleased when others are carrying openly. ;-)

Re: Just spent a couple of weeks in Arizona.....

I don't open carry in other states where the practice is permissable. I'd be pleased if Texas became an open-carry state, but I still wouldn't do it. If you're going to open carry, you need a holster with a higher level of retention features than if you're going to carry concealed. In addition, I do...

Re: Anyone in DFW area have a sight pusher tool for a Glock?

I installed night sights on my Glocks just using a flat-tipped punch to set the new rear sights in position. That tool isn't necessary.

Re: Address on my CHL

It may also be worth noting that you can have your CHL - and your driver's license, for that matter - mailed to a different address than what's on the CHL/DL. That's the case with me, because I live in one (very small) town, but the mail is delivered by a post office in another. The mailing address ...

Re: Reconsidering the snub nose revolver

I put a set of Crimson Trace laser grips on my Smith 342 for my wife. I like them so much that it's now by primary "dress gun" in a Pocket Concealment Systems pocket holster. Loaded with Corbon DPX and a speed loader in my other front pocket, it's very handy during shorts and T-shirt weather - which...

Re: Just got the Plastic today and already have a question

Those who think it might be a good idea to carry a pistol without a round in the chamber might find it useful to practice one or more procedures for getting a round in the chamber using only one hand. When the fight starts, you might not have two hands available for that task. I think carrying with ...

Re: The Tactical Flashlight

The real specs for a "tactical" flashlight depend on the arena you play in. The flashlights needs of a police officer - who may have to search the aforementioned warehouse - are a lot different from those of a civilian who may need to find something in the dark, or identify an assailant at close ran...

Re: USPS poster regarding firearms

I think a key factor in this doctrine is what constitutes "official purposes." It's perfectly legal for anyone to mail rifles and shotguns, and for FFL holders to mail handguns, so, pretty obviously, it simply must be legal to carry such into the Post Office. Given that, another interesting question...

Re: Bore sighter gimmick or 'must have'?

Save your money. If you need to sight in a rifle at 100 yards, set up a target at 25 yards. Sight the optic or sights in so that the point of impact is about three-quarters of an inch below and directly under the point of aim. That distance, which will vary a bit as a function of the sight height ov...

Re: Do you standardize on one caliber/platform?

Now, pragmatically speaking, there are very few Single Action Only (SAO) (requires manual cocking, or cocking by virtue of recoil cycling of the slide) pistols. If you mean by "very few" types or designs of pistols, that's arguably correct. If you mean the number of such pistols in existence, given...
