Re: ANTHONY KENNEDY IS RETIRING!

Scott, I don't think it is done yet. I would let this play out and continue to fight. I think the Republicans need to move this on to the Senate floor for a vote before the elections so that everyone can see how the vote goes. That may affect the outcome of the election in a positive way for the cou...

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

I have never fired a shot in self defense but I have talked to several SWAT officers from big cities (Houston and Dallas) that have each shot more than a few people in the line of duty. They all shoot 45 ACP. I asked why with all the talk of 9mm being the death ray now and the common answer is that ...

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

NJ_Expat, Thank you for the reply and information. I doubt I would run hunting ammo through it. I have some old 30-06 brass around and Starline tells me that they will start making 30-06 brass soon. 308 ammo is less expensive and more common. Where did you get the information about boring out the ga...

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

Scott B.,

Would you get a 308 again (now that you have one) or would you go to a 30-06 for the next one. Reasons. I will only get one rifle (if I get that) and want to hear from those that have the 308.

Thanks

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

Scott B. How do you like having the Garand set up in .308? I will be traveling to the CMP in a couple of weeks to shoot in the IDPA National Championship. Will be my first time there and probably my last. I need an M1 like I need a hole in my head but have been thinking about getting one for some ti...

Re: One Couger .357 build coming eventually

Andy,

Does that price include a trigger job on the Ruger? I have a 70's vintage Security Six that needs a trigger job but don't know anyone that can do that. Sure would like to get it slicked up.

Re: 2020 Prez election: Dems' bench is shallow. Suicide run by ??

I still get plenty of mail and email from Cruz asking for money. I will be voting for him but won't put up a sign for anyone. With the way the crazy left is acting, I don't want to invite vandalism, etc. to my property from having a sign up. What matters is the final vote count. Republicans must tur...

Re: NY governor: America was never that great

The people in New York City may like him but the folks in Upstate New York have a different opinion. I was at a manufacturing facility in Upstate New York for factory acceptance testing of equipment my former employer was purchasing early last year. I needed to make a restroom break and smiled at th...

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

The video makes it pretty obvious what happened. Yes, it sure does. Older gentleman gets forcefully shoved to the pavement by the boyfriend of the lady that parked illegally in a handicapped spot. Older gentleman did nothing wrong. If fact, we need more people to step up and speak out when the "pri...

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

No, he was not standing his ground. It was more like revenge for getting pushed down. The guy was backing away after the gun came out. If he had made an aggressive move forward then it would be justified. I’d say 2nd or 3rd degree murder, certainly not first degree. I beg to differ on standing his ...

Re: Paul Harrell video regarding "hyper ammo"

Thanks to a post by Charles earlier this year, I ended up watching all of Paul's videos. I would encourage those that question what Paul has to say to watch his videos. I was skeptical at first but am no longer so as I learned that his credentials are impressive and his tests more real world than a ...

Re: .38 Special S&W 640

Another option for those that are recoil sensitive and can't rack a slide is the S&W 351 C. It is a 22 magnum air weight revolver with 7 shot capacity. There is now some pretty good self defense ammo out for the 22 magnum and 7 shots should be enough to at least get the bag guy (or gal) to take off.
