Re: What are your 2018 shooting goals?

Get my Dillon press, improve my time and hits with my .40 in plate matches. Lower my time by 1.5 seconds with my 22 in the plate match.

Re: Tritium Sights - How Effective?

My eyes do not allow me adjust to the white dot on a white background. When looking at the front sight at an indoor range that has poor lighting. I loose the front site in the flash. I ordered this site yesterday (Truglo TFO Sights). I hope this solve my problem. I my eyes pick up red or green on a ...

Re: How often?

Carry pistols after shooting and wipe down with light oil, maybe once a month. Rifles after shooting and inspect for anything loose. I haven't found anything, but it's part of my process. Falling plate match pistols after every match and inspect before every match. I always hope for flawless mechani...

Re: Corrected Vision Shooting

Inside my house, I do not need my glasses nor hearing protection. Pistol in hand and determine the threat. I know all of my distances in my home. We have gone through this exercise several times. We have 2 emergency kits to treat wounds. I have targets on several walls that use for dry fire, so ther...

Re: AZ: Police release graphic video of officer involved shooting of Texas man

This is sad, but when the guy reached for his waist, the scales for justice was in the officers favor. As a former juror on a murder trial, optics of a video has no chance against the law and a good attorney. I teach my kids and grandkids to keep their hands between the steering wheel, on the front ...

Re: Wife wants a new falling plate pistol

May I suggest that you go to your local range. Pick out a few of their rentals first so that she can get a better idea of what's out there. Most ladies have a little harder time especially with a double stack 9mm. But there are those out there that fit. She has the XD subcompact. The length of the ...

Wife wants a new falling plate pistol

My wife said " that she wants a new falling plate pistol." She normally shoots her Browning Buck Mark, but now wants to use a 9 MM, with a longer barrel. Her first choice is the Springfield Armory XDM in 4.25 or 5" her Second, choice is H & K VP.

Re: Just when you thought the Dallas Mayor Pro Tem couldn't think of anything dumber to say...

This entire interview was dumb. Some people enjoy getting in front of a news camera and try their best to make stuff up. How about pay their officers more $, fix the cameras that did not work in the 7-7-2016 shooting in downtown Dallas, address the homeless problem, and ensuring all levels of govern...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 27 dead 30 injured in mass shooting

This is horrible. I can tell you this that every Catholic Church in the Fort Worth and Dallas Diocese is posted 30.06 and 30.07. I haven’t seen every one but the ones I have seen are. It is my understanding that this was a directive from the Dallas and Fort Worth Bishops. This is horrible. I can te...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 27 dead 30 injured in mass shooting

I agree with the person who came out of their home and shot at the suspect. Never, put yourself in front of a tv camera, give your name to the media or anything that will put you in the cloud for the rest of your life. Let law enforcement protect your identity. The left and right can ruin your life....

Re: "Multiple people down in shooting at Colorado Walmart, police say"

I have been a season ticket holder for the Dallas Mavericks for 12 years. This year they started showing an emergency exit video before the game. When we left the game I noticed a guy with a K9. However, the dog did not seem to be for crowd protection. I found out that it was a contractor performing...

Re: Decisions decisions...

I started buying all of my odds and ends (scale, calipers, brass cleaner, dies, tickler and flip tray) earlier this year. I plan on getting the Dillon 550C in Feb. I have been collecting my own brass (40 S & W, 9mm , 223 and 45 ACP) over the past year and half. I am waiting on the black Friday and h...

Re: Any other women here?

I think there is Pink Pistols, but I do not no much about them and can not comment on them. My club host a ladies day shoot once a year. It's free, we provide lunch and you shoot 22lr, rifle, pistol, trap, air guns and archery. I am not aware of any other private clubs in DFW that host events for wo...
