Re: Surprisingly fast

For my son's 21st birthday, my wife and I paid for his LTC application and class. Had the class on 15 December, received his LTC today, 26 December. Now, that's what I call quick service!

Re: UNT Dallas School of Law suspends student, possiby in part because he owns a firearm

Thanks for posting. My youngest son (a Junior at A&M) is taking the LSAT and applying to Law Schools this Spring. I when I show him this, I know he won't be applying to UNT! For his 21st birthday, we paid for his LTC application and class. He will be taking it this Winter Break.

Re: Prof shoots himself in arm in bathroom

I read a good novel called "One Second After" by John Matherson, in which cigarettes and rounds of ammo are used as currency in a post-apocalyptic United States. Food became a problem after the first winter, when all of the dogs and squirrels were gone. A very believable scenario.

Re: Carry gun in Big bend

I always carry when hiking in National Parks. Most of my trips are in the Southwest. Lots of critters to defend against (human and animal). The sign below is in Coronado National Park (S. AZ), which abuts the border with Mexico. Almost every other hiker we saw on the trail was open carrying. The Par...

Re: What would you do

Does a third party have the right to draw weapon and defend guy #1? Absolutely. The thug could have easily killed him. I like to think that I would have drawn, yelled for the thug to stop a few times, and if he didn't, or he advanced on me, I would have popped him. If he ran out, I would have held ...

Re: Carry while Backpacking

I hike a lot in the Southwestern US. Never go without at least one firearm (in addition to all my other survival gear). I usually carry my Sig 239 in .40 cal. I just bought a Chiappa Ridgerunner takedown rifle in 45-70 for a longer engagement range. My son will likely pack that, since he is 6' 4". A...

I do some hiking in Bear country, and really like my Henry 45-70. Not too heavy, and packs quite a punch.

Re: Thinking about a Sig P239 for EDC

My EDC is the Sig 239 in .40 cal. I love it. Not too big, not too small, ...just right. The gun has never has had an FTF in a couple of thousand rounds.

Re: New way to treat wounds caused by a bullet!

Sounds like a fancy tampon. The SEALs carry tampons in their self-care medical kits to use exactly for this purpose. They are sterile, expand to quickly plug the hole, cheap, and widely available. I actually keep some in the first aid kit in the SUV (hopefully, I will never have to be a first respo...

Looks like reduced loads to me. No way the recoil of a .500 standard load is that low. Plus, the report is awfully quiet...
