Re: 6.8 AR as "The One Gun" ?

First off, I will admit to NOT being an AR platform fan - that being said I recognize the versatility. The 6.8 is gaining ground with regard to availability but if I were to only have one rifle (to start with, no matter what you may plan the pringle effect will kick in) it would be an AR10 platform ...

Re: yet another, recommend a holster thread

Thanks for the tips so far, I looked into the safepacker, not sure that would work for me but I may get one for JIC. Never been comfortable with the belly band. Might look into the pager pal but just cant get over the shamwow style advertising.
Any other options?

Re: thoughts on being disarmed

Been stopped a few times when I had my first CHL. My experience mirrors most - pleasant conversation and a warning. I have been disarmed ONCE. I was coming home from work, at that time I ran the local range and needless to say I had several guns in the truck. As soon as I pulled over I put both hand...

For future reference, as long as you are not in a hurry you can throw the die in a cup of brasso or even straight ammonia. a day or two later rinse it well and go back to loading.
