Re: Holster making part uno...

Nice! I'm betting that you already have plans for the next one. . . right?

Re: Holster making part uno...

That's a great attitude, and pretty much the way I approached my first holster.

Enjoy!

If it's like my house, at some point in the evening Dear Sweet Wife will ask why the water outside is running.

Re: 9mm Pro Carry II

Sometimes my wife would rather give me a hard time than have something she likes too! After some reading, measuring, and mathing, I bumped the FMJ rounds up to 5.2 grains of Unique and lengthened the OAL to 1.148". I ran 50 of those through with no failures of any sort - any grip tight enough to squ...

9mm Pro Carry II

Dear Sweet Wife and I ran some ammo through her new Kimber. All handloads using Montana Gold 124 grain FMJ and Speer 124 grain Gold Dots. 250 rounds total, although some went through my well-used FN Hi Power as an ammo checker. 4.5 grains of Win 231 with the FMJ, OAL 1.161" - some failure to return ...

Re: Soft locking rifle case?

Nice! It also counts as actual security instead of a soft case that is technically locked, but not secure.

Re: Straus not running for a new term.

The best way to get people to participate in their communities is to reduce the size and footprint of the government. Once something becomes the "government's" responsibility the "people" back away from it.
Why do I not believe Straus' PAC will be promoting a reduction in government?

Re: WTB SS 9mm Commander

She likes the weight because it tames the recoil. She is willing to try some other guns out, it's fitting in a trip to a rental range that has what she wants to try that is tricky. We're about 2 hours northwest of Austin.

Re: WTB SS 9mm Commander

She has a Star BM now. While it has been reliable, and she doesn't shoot enough to wear it out, I would like her to have a higher-quality pistol at hand. I have a Hi Power I thought I might have hard chromed for her, but she doesn't like the width of the double-stack mag. My Combat Commander fits ok...

Found - SS 9mm Commander

Edited to add; Ordered a Kimber and will post a review in the appropriate forum once we've wrung it out a little. Thanks, everyone! ------------------------ I'm looking for a Commander-sized 1911 in 9mm. Stainless steel is my first option, hard chrome would probably work. It will spend long periods ...

Bernie has not admitted to being a fascist, and that is the term that most closely fits his plan.

Re: Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

Assume everyone is armed, all of the time. Who has a license and who doesn't is not relevant to the safety of you or your family.
Continue to actively communicate with law enforcement - their involvement may persuade your neighbor to act right.

Good Luck!

Re: Soft locking rifle case?

I would suggest one of the cheap, small, plastic ones as well. If the rifle is not scoped, it'll fit into a pretty small one. Some soft cases have locking zippers. Most have a ring on the case where the zipper ends - you could put a small lock through that ring and the zipper tab. https://byallen.co...
