Re: NRA Hammered on Fox

I certainly believe that the NRA has some internal issues that must be resolved, but I also believe that it is still the best organization at the national level working to preserve gun rights at this time. I upped my membership last week from Life to Endowment. We need to stand together and not get ...

Re: Are we de facto in more danger from Republicans than Democrats in regard to 2nd Amendment?

I like to think of it more in in the terms of "Lesser of two evils" I get that. But that argument, over the years, has really shown to be a non-solution. Lesser of two evils is still an evil. <SNIP> I understand your thought process, but when you're faced with a choice of two evils, it's still a go...

Re: "The Untold History of the USA"

I've watched part of it. It's interesting, but it does seem to have a liberal bias. For instance, in the segments about WW2 Stone seems to think we should have been more trusting and helpful to the Russians during and after the war.

Re: Ross Perot death

While Ross Perotv was undoubtedly an honorable person, I will always remember him as the man who, through his third party candidacy, put Bill Clinton into the White House.

Re: Best compact 1911? Or favorite DA/SA carry

Did a fair amount of research a few years ago and decided I wanted a SIG P229. I went to the LGS but decided to check out the used offerings before I pluncked down my money for a new one. Walked away with a SIG PRO SP2022 for about 1/3 the cost of a new P229 and have never regretted that purchase. I...

Re: Suppressor build success

Yeah, I have an original Photon IR scope on another rifle. It's very useful out to about 80-100 yards, more if there's moonlight and the target isn't in shadow. In the early pre-dawn time (about an hour before actual sunup) I can see hogs a half mile distant if they're in the open even though I can'...

What optic are you using?
It's an IR Hunter MK3 60mm thermal weapon sight.
I think Trijicon bought IR Hunter a year or two ago, so it may be marketed under that brand now.

Normally the video is MUCH better. I'm going to see if I can repair my old cable.

Re: Suppressor build success

I've been continuing to play/work with this suppressor over the past year or so, and I believe I'm getting everything sorted out. The POI still changes sometimes after bouncing the rifle around for a while, but things have settled in to a satisfactory degree. I'm using it regularly on hogs these day...

Not a meme per se, but interesting.

Re: Social Security pending Insolvency

Q: What are the 'odds' that Congress will completely fail to do anything about this? They'll do something , but they'll wait until the very last minute. Any solution will anger some constituents, so the politicians will continue to pass it down the line until it absolutely CANNOT be avoided.

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I lived in Arizona for a few years, and until then I wondered why they were opposed to DST. After living there I found out. Arizona is tucked at the far west side of the Mountain Time Zone and even without DST the sun sets pretty late in the day. In the desert, the last thing those folks need is an...

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I don't have any complaint about changing the clock twice a year, it's not that onerous. What I would NOT like to see is Texas doing something unique that sets it apart in a weird way from its' neighbors. I remember in the 70's when DST was initially introduced. A news service interviewed several fo...
