Re: Must Barrell Ends Be Threaded To Accept A Suppressor?

The issue with coming up with an adapter for a sound suppressor is maintaining concentricity with the bore well enough to prevent baffle strikes within the suppressor. Do your Colt 6920 and S&W 15-22 not have a muzzle device (flash suppressor) on them already? If so, they are likely affixed via thre...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

when considering the difference in polling between Ted and Beto you also need to remember that Beto outspent Ted by a significant margin, had major star power pushing for him, The media in his pocket, and a serious socialist movement in his corner -- yet he still lost. On paper, and in the minds of...

Re: Calling all 1st gen m&p fs/c owners

I've carried one since late 2010. The lever is designed as a slide stop, and I think it is even referred to as such in the owner's manual. I have always used it as such since finding it to be rather hard to manipulate as a slide release in dry fire. As a side note, sliding home most, if not all, of ...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Funny thing. I am as white as one can get and the race of a candidate never even enters my mind. I vote for the candidate who best represents my concerns. But I hear minorities often admitting to placing a vote for the person who best fits their race. If I did this it would be called racist. They d...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

It's uncommon for someone to put the country's needs above their own in this day and time. People just do not accept that many of these social programs are not sustainable long term. We are mired in the muck we are in with creeping Collectivism, exploding Debt, and partisan politics because the ten...

Re: 22 9mm squibs in one barrel!

Once you have a bore obstruction, I'm not sure the rest have to be squibs to stack up like that.

Re: Nominate a 357 target shooter

If strictly for target shooting, I'd personally be looking for a Dan Wesson (Monson) 715 VH (Vent Heavy barrel shroud) -- especially if I could find the Pistol Pack with all four barrels, the case and accessories. I've been partial to Dan Wessons since seeing them dominate in the revolver class of I...

Re: LA Passes Ordinance Requiring City Contractors To Disclose NRA Ties

La-La land. A lot of "news" seems to come from there. Little of it is good, but a good bit makes me wonder if recreational drugs have somehow infiltrated the water table.

Re: Judging books by their covers

For all the PC balderdash about "profiling", it is something all sentient creatures do with things and others in their environment -- assessing the risk potential of everything and everyone around them. Until actions are observed all we have to go on is initial appearances. As we observe the actions...

Re: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING AWARENESS DAY

I don't see it so much as spying on my neighbors. I am familiar enough with my neighbors to know that they aren't prone to "suspicious" activities. I do think that noting things that are out of the ordinary might be important, whether it rises to a level I'd report to law enforcement or not. Most of...

Re: Well I earned another badge of honor today....

TAM, you -- a man -- called a female Progressive darling a name, and one deriding her sexual curiosity. Such behavior is hurtful and simply won't be tolerated -- unless it is Progressives doing the name calling against anything/anyone that stands for Conservative values, of course.

Re: .22 cal LR not reliable for SD, is a .380?

I'd wager that the vast majority of us have exactly zero experience using a firearm in an SD situation, so I am happy to hear from anyone who has. That said, like most of us here, I base my primary defensive firearm choices on what is now commonly seen as truth -- that shot placement of a sufficient...
