Re: I STOPPED A ROBBERY LAST NIGHT

Javier, how are you and your wife doing? I'm sure you're both pretty shaken up. Thanks for asking, we are actually doing pretty good. Not as shaken up as I thought we would be. Its a real eye opener for my wife though. She never had a problem with firearms but she never felt the need to carry one. ...

Re: 911 call

I am not sure I got through but she was visibly moved.

If nothing else, she has something to think about.

That poor lady shouting "oh my God!" at the end made her think a little.

Thanks again mojo84.

Re: 911 call

It's a female and I really want her to hear that call. I have made my case but need her to hear a dose of reality.

She still thinks I am "paranoid"

I want her to hear first hand.

Re: 911 call

I think it is about 6 minutes long. The 911 operator tells her to hide. The lady is crying and the perp finally breaks down the door to her bedroom and she "stops" him.

(I have an "anti" asking me why I have a gun. I want to play that 911 call)

911 call

I have been searching for over 45 minutes for the 911 call of the woman who eventually shoots an intruder and saves her life.

Re: Why do I need an assault rifle?

I asked a friend once who owned one that very same question.

Him - Have you ever shot one?
Me - No
Him - Ask me again after you shoot one.

A few months later I had the chance to shoot one.

2 weeks after that I was a proud owner.

Law Enforcement Firearm Training

Can someone please explain to me what type of training LEOs get in regards to firearms? I keep hearing that it is OK if a LEO has a gun because he/she is trained. What does that training entail? I shoot regularly and do IDPA matches. What do they do? This is NOT to question their training and skill ...

Re: Another Texas School to allow concealed carry

There is no gain in making this complicated, like a government project or something. Repeal the Federal Gun Free Zone law. Encourage, but do not require teachers and other district employees to obtain CHL and carry. Parents and other with CHLs are no problem, are they? They don't shoot up banks, gr...

Re: M1 Garand. Do I buy it?

I know but it is a rifle I have always wanted.

If was on "some list" I would want to get it ASAP.

Just in case. ;-)

Re: M1 Garand. Do I buy it?

Just did some more research.

Looks like it is the M1 Carbine that is on the ban list, not the M1 Garand.

Re: M1 Garand. Do I buy it?

Thanks OldGringo. I was looking at that site. Doesnt look like they have updated their pricing in a long time and certainly not after Sandy Hook. This M1 seems to be in between the CMP Service Grade and Correct Grade. Based on their pricing, I would say it is about $200 high. But, after Sandy Hook, ...

M1 Garand. Do I buy it?

I need some advice.

I found a Springfield M1 Garand for $1000.

All original.

Throat measures a 1 and he didnt have a bore guage to test the bore.

Wood is very dark. Dents and dings but no cracks.

Serial starts with 58.

Do I go buy it?

Thanks

Re: CT shooting - Pepper Spray? Taser?

I am trying to find something that can be done NOW. Right now. Guns in schools will take a long time if ever to get approved.

The principal died throwing her body at the shooter.

Pepper spray or a taser MIGHT have been able to do at least SOMETHING.

Right?

Better than nothing?
