Just wondering.

I've been watching the LTC instructor renewal range qualification threads with interest. It sure looks like a it could be a lot of fun. But It strikes is as being a little ironic. That instructors are required to requalify in their shooting skills for a renewal, while LTC renewals are not. Is instru...

Re: Stun Gun Treated as Deadly Weapon

If I am threatened offensively by someone bearing a stungun, I will assume I am in grave danger of getting killed or receiving great bodily harm. Being made totally inherit and incapacitated would leave one vulnerable and defenseless against a deadly attack.

Re: Dentist and Nitrus Oxide

You would be definitely under the influence. I'm not sure if practically it would be dangerous, but the dental office would have reason to be concerned.

Re: Short trip ideas

I am right there with you, I am not into tourist trap stuff but wife is. Gotta support the loved ones, though, right? We don't travel much but we recently spent a weekend in Fredericksburg (west of SAT). Plenty of historic places to see, nice churches, wineries, breweries, museums, gardens, restaur...

Re: Short trip ideas

It all depends on where your interest lies. I would think adventuresome would be out of the places. Do you all like to tour historic places? My wife & I do. If so, I'd say Baton Rouge, or New Orleans, and start touring all of the old plantations on the Mississippi down in that area. A lot of great ...

Re: New 6.8 mm Round a Game-Changer for Ground Troops

My memory tells me the 6.8spc was suppose to replace the 5.56 nato but military turned it down because of warehouses full of 5.56 ammuntion! There may well have been other reasons too. For instance, with a standard bullet weight of 110 grains (at the light end for 6.8 SOC), each round of 6.8 will w...

Re: FL: Homeowner with AR15 kills 2, in armed home invasion.

Yep, that's the reason I'm getting one. Never know when anarchy is going to break out. They will be handy to have if all that is around us goes to heII, but I still believe the best reason to own an AR is that they are just plain fun to shoot. I' m not really a rifle guy. That might change after yo...

Re: Noncompliance Kneecaps New Zealand's Gun Control Scheme

The banners still win. The gun owners go underground, skills deteriorate. Organized training becomes non-existant. The owners still live in fear of being found out. Banning guns is not really about guns, it's about instilling fear and neutering the public Socialism is all about controlling the peasa...

Re: Stray dogs in Florida maul man to death in 4th of July attack

Forgot to add, that if there were rocks or a stick nearby, I would’ve armed myself with them. Instead, they caught up with me right in the middle of an open field with nothing around except grass. A trick I learned as a paperboy several decades ago is to bend over as to reach for a rock, and pause ...

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

Must of caused a spark Can you get a spark from lead and copper? Maybe from an .556 round with a penetrator? I suspect that someone was attempting to use fireworks as a weapon. As a kid, we used to shoot at rats against all kinds of things. We never saw sparks like they showed in the movies. It was...

Re: 14 year old kills 14 yo guest with mom’s unloaded gun

Old news happened 1.5 years ago on Dec. 1st 2017.
These incidents don't happen enough to suit the MSM antigun agenda so they have to drag up old stories.
