Re: Drive by shooting

"It's not uncommon to hear shooting, mostly I think it's just people firing their guns not criminal activity tho there is some". My understanding is that firing any firearm randomly in the city limits IS criminal activity. :rules:

Re: Getting CHL and Wife issue

Here are some of my responses I give to those who ask me why I carry all the time. I ask them if they have ever had an auto accident and if they respond yes, then I ask them why did they drive that route or even leave the house if they knew they were going to have an accident. Or I may ask why do th...

Re: Compliance

I wear hearing devices and have as yet had a problem of hearing LEO's asking me questions standing beside the drivers side of my vehicle. One scenario I have pondered is when you inform the LEO that you carrying and he/she asks you to remove your firearm, how would I respond. This of course is if yo...

Dixie Reloaders

Does anyone know if Dixie Reloaders are still selling at any of the FTW gun shows? A friend and I have used their reloads for years without any problems. Have not been to the gun show recently so I don't know if they are still there. Their prices were very reasonable back then but they most like hav...

"I sure wish that pigs would leave an area after seeing a few of their own knocked down. We are knee deep in them."

Would be willing to help you with your pig problem. I have a AR FiveSeven with laser and light I would like to try out on them.

Re: Handgun equipment/technique questions from Newbie

She has to walk across the parking lot at night after her classes at TCC. I don't ask and she doesn't tell. In my opinion sometimes a man (or woman) has to make a decision to disobey man’s law when the law is unjust. Not allowing a lawful citizen to have the means to protect themselves and/or other...

Laser on handgun

While I was teaching my daughter how to shoot a Glock 33 with a CT Laser I sold her, I noticed she was trying to “hold” the laser dot on the target. After she shot 3-4 mags to let her get familiar with the gun, I suggested she not try to "hold" the dot on the target. I told her to squeeze the trigge...

Laser on handgun

I will not try to convince anyone about the advantages of a laser on a handgun. I will just express the reasons I added them to two of my carry weapons (Colt Combat Commander .45 & Glock 22 .40 cal and soon my Ruger LC9). As anyone who has been in a close quarter fire fight will tell you, you will h...

Re: What should I use, harsh language?

All of these "contact" method means that you would have to be in "contact" range. :smash: Depending on how long your arms are that could be too close -- at least for me. The best answer I can give is to use a method where you can reach out and touch someone without putting yourself in close contact ...

Re: Military Police

Things have changed since I was in the service ('59-‘65). I served with a Marine guard company on a Naval Ammunition Depot in McAlester, OK. A friend and I had purchased some Hi-Standard Double Action .22 revolvers while station there. We had to check our personal weapons into the armory when on bas...

Re: Semi-auto guide rods: Function with and without lasers?

I have had a CT laser (grip mounted) on my Colt Combat Commander for years and have not had to adjust the sight alignment after 1000's of rounds other than the first time I shot it. I also have one on my Glock 21 since I bought it and shot hundreds of rounds without any need for adjustment. Also hav...
