Re: Why Is Passenger Asked For I.D.?

Rule #1 is Never consent to a warrantless search. Never. There is no chance it can be a positive experience, but a non-zero probability it could be very negative. If it looks like they are going to do it anyway, state loudly and clearly “I do NOT consent to this search”. Rule #2 is never give a LEO ...

Re: TN: Waffle House shooting leaves 4 dead, several injured

No mention of Shaw getting shot, but he did burn his hand on the barrel. I'm not sure that the dad broke any federal laws, but probably broke an Illinois law or two. https://www.thedailybeast.com/waffle-house-shooter-travis-reinking-got-ar-15-back-from-his-dad-james-shaw-took-it-away-and-stopped-a-m...

Re: FFL Transfer fees The Arms Room

Soccerdad has it right. As a former marketing guy and retail store owner, most retail stores pay big money to get new people in the front door. If I had a gun store, I would see transfers as a cheap way to bring in potential customers. Every single one of them will be a buyer of guns, not a tire-kic...

Re: Shake Down on the Bus

Civil Asset Forfeiture is the single biggest unconstitutional outrage inflicted against US citizens. I cannot believe it has not been struck down.

Got Blackrock?

Blackrock Inc is looking to divest it's gun company holdings. You may have some Blackrock shares in your IRA or 401K, as I do. If you are a stockholder, consider contacting the company and tell them you are an NRA member and will sell your stock if they make anti-gun changes. http://www.bbc.com/news...

I use Eastern Insurance / Historic Firearms Insurance: https://www.easterninsurance.com/insurance-quotes/personal-insurance/historic-firearms I used to use the NRA policy, but read a lot of good reviews about Eastern Insurance and switched. They are much cheaper. As with the NRA insurance, they do ...

I'm going today with a group. I don't expect any issues.

Re: Kel-Tec P-32 has become available again

I have a number of mouse guns, including NAA and LCP, and a few others that I've sold. I weighed them all loaded, and the P32 won. It's my basic "yard gun". It's the only one that is comfortable in a shirt pocket. Mine's a Keeper. And I do have a few other .32 ACP pistols - Star, Llama, and my wife ...

Re: Looking for a Llama .380 Magazine

For all Lllama 380s made in Spain (until 2005 approx) There are really only 2 380 mags - Early for II and III with narrow base, and Late for IIIA/XA/Especiale/MicroMax with wide base. Your Llama probably has a slide rib, which makes it a Late style or IIIA. It doesn't matter whether it is blowback o...

Re: Looking for a Llama .380 Magazine

Colt mags will not fit. The Llama is unique. You can find them used on GB OR eBay, or gunparts. Triple-K has new ones. You can also ask the guys on the Gunboard’s Spanish sub forum. Be sure to get the wide base mags
