Re: 1-Day Ham Radio Class - Alvin Texas

Charles, I have decided that I would like to get started with Ham radio. Do you know if your friend will be offering this class again? I would like to start with a hand held and work with that for a while to see if I want to go further. If he is not offering the class again, do you have any recommen...

Re: Kimber Ultra Carry II won’t cycle properly

I have only had one Kimber, their Super Carry Pro (4" barrel) in 45 ACP. I had all sorts of issues with it including failure to feed and failure to extract. I would call them and their response was to continue to feed it ammo and it will be fine (with a tone of voice like I was an idiot). At somewhe...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I don't know what to tell you about moles as I have never had them. For St. Augustine grass, I had great success fertilizing once in the spring and once in the fall with a 3-1-2 ratio fertilizer. I used a mulching mower and cut the grass at the 3 inch setting on the mower. It may take a couple of ye...

Re: Looking for a financial planner

I would encourage you to learn how to do this yourself. I have tried financial managers and always been disappointed with what they have done (in addition to what they charge). I would be glad to share what I have learned if you want to PM. I really is very easy to do and you will be glad that you i...

Re: Remington 1911

You might want to look at the Dan Wesson Valkyrie. It is commander length on the barrel but officer length on the grip. Frame is aluminum. A very well build pistol that is extremely accurate. I bought myself one in 45 ACP for Christmas. Have put the 500 rounds through it with no issues. Weighs 28 ou...

Re: Pmags- gen 2 vs gen 3 questions

I have used the gen 2 since shortly after Obama was elected for 3 gun, carbine matches and training classes and have never had any issues with these magazines. I have some with the window and some without. I thought it would be good to have the window to check round availability during a stage but I...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Lots of good options. A Ruger Security Six was my first 357 back in 1974. Having owned more than a few over the years, I have found that I have a strong preference for a 5 inch barrel on a 357. A friend had a S&W Model 27 many years ago that had a 5 inch barrel and it was really sweet. Another curre...

Re: 1911 Bug bites again. Which one?

I have three Springfields, 2 TRPs and one Trophy Match. They are all very nice pistols but needed trigger work from the factory. Took them to Ed Van Den Burg to have the triggers brought down to 4 pounds. He put Ed Brown hammers and sears in all three. The triggers are perfection now. They are all s...

Re: Dillon Blue Press: Interesting Article

Charles, Yep, it was Mark. Took a Response to Active Shooter class this summer at KR Training. We were told that, at the gay bar shooting in Florida, there was a LEO there and that the LEO emptied two magazines but never hit the shooter. More ammo does not turn someone into a good shooter. Reminds m...

Re: Dillon Blue Press: Interesting Article

Charles, I have the article from last month if you would like to see it and can't find your copy. The title is "Why the 45 ACP FAILED" (or some words similar but I remember the word "failed" being in all caps). I was tempted to write to the author and ask him to send me his 45 ACP pistols and ammo/r...

Re: What would YOU do?

It is hard to say what one would do and what shot he may take until they are in that situation. If one takes a Response to Active Shooter Class (I have been in two by different instructors) you will have to do long distance shooting. One class (KR Training) had us shooting at an 18 X 24 inch steel p...

Re: Churches arm, train congregants in wake of mass shootings

I took the CRASE class (with Stop the Bleed) at KR Training in July. Karl and the other instructors did a very good job with the class. It is well worth a weekend of your time to take the class. Paul Howe (Combat Shooting and Tactics) also offers a CRASE class. It is a bit more advanced, was three d...

Re: Churches arm, train congregants in wake of mass shootings

I am a member of the Emergency Response Team at our church. When i joined, I was cautioned not to use the phrase "Security Team" as we (Emergency Response Team) are not licensed to be a Security Team (could be sued if we used that term). The article states that the people that go through the trainin...

Re: NRA and Red Flag Laws

My concern is what the red flag laws will morf into. Example, as Christians become a smaller part of the population, someone on the left could claim that they are causing problems/have anger problems because they preach what the Bible says. The Left could call for all guns to be confiscated from any...

Re: Remington 870 barrel shortening in Houston

Ed Van Den Burg is another option. He threaded a couple of 870 barrels for choke tubes and did an outstanding job.
