Re: Smith and Wesson releases M&P EZ in 9mm

All else being equal, a lighter weight firearm will have a stronger recoil impulse due to having less mass that the energy from the cartridge has to work against. Certain laws of physics are hard to get around.

Re: Concealed Carry Purses

My wife has a few different carry purses, though she usually actually carries on body. Four or five years ago I purchased a Coronado Leather purse for her online (very high quality leather and construction, but a bit pricey). It is the purse she carries almost every day, and still looks great, thoug...

Re: Three years ago today...

By God's grace I was born in Texas. I feel for those who must immigrate seeking the Liberty that should be their birthright. I hope that we can keep Texas (and most of the rest of the US) a bastion of individual Liberty for future generations. If I haven't said so before, Strogg, you are welcome ind...

Re: Is my wife really right? Say it ain't so...please

Everyone should do their best to be aware of their surroundings at all times -- kids and adults alike -- so that they can mitigate potential threats. If your kid has practiced this skill and doesn't spend half of his waking hours head down into an electronic device, he is MUCH better prepared than m...

Re: Practical Implementation of Universal Background Checks

As you point out, the effectiveness of Universal Background Checks isn't expected to be measured by a drop in the criminal use of firearms. UBC isn't designed to affect criminals at all -- only otherwise law abiding citizens. It is also my understanding that a Government database of firearms ownersh...

Re: House of Worship/Church Safety Meeting Problems

Everyone who worships wants to do so in safety. For me, that means that I choose to worship where I and my fellow congregants can legally be armed. Our church is posted 30.07, which I have no problem with. I serve on a rotating basis as a primary security person, attending worship in the narthex, lo...

Re: Issue with Sig P365

The only gun I have seen this sort of thing happen in was a Scandium frame, Titanium cylinder, S&W 325PD when using 230 gn Blazer aluminum cased ammo. The aluminum cases did not grip the bullet well enough to prevent them from creeping out (there was no crimp into a cannelure) due to the momentum of...

Re: FL: Father kills son in law accidentally with one shot from .380

The corollary to "know your target" is "know when, where, how and who you can surprise at night". This is a tragic result of failures in front of, and behind, the gun.

Re: S&W announces M&P 2.0 12+1 Subcompact Pistol

Still have and carry the M&P Gen. 1 9C. New generation, but same gun. I don't see much news here, other than S&W trying to capitalize on the market for guns in the 10 - 12 round magazine capacity. To me, S&W missed the mark... the competition (SIG P365 and the new Springfield gun) are significantly ...

Re: Places worse than Houston

Criminal violence happens everywhere and social decay has eliminated shame as a guiding force even for violent criminals. Sadly, this means that Churches (often true sanctuaries in the past with their door always open) now have to implement real security measures for premises and staff. As to the he...

Re: Politicians Violating Their Oath of Office

People in the choir know there are other choir members singing and choir members don't falsely and publicly call out other members for not singing. Also, most choirs do not appreciate the know-it-all that shows up out of no where and starts lecturing the other choir members. I agree with these poin...

Re: Politicians Violating Their Oath of Office

You are preaching to the choir, not the peanut gallery. Interesting note about being in a choir... the most beautiful sounds can only be made when the choir members can each hear one another. When one or more members raises their voice above all others to the point that they can't, or won't, hear e...

Re: Ultimate Goal of Dems to repeal 2nd Amendment

The pesky thing about natural human rights is that regardless of Government acknowledgement -- like that enshrined in the Second Amendment -- they still exist.
