Re: One in the chamber?

Regardless of how you carry -- train, train, train. If there is any doubt go to YouTube and look up "Armed Customer stops armed robber in Wisconsin." This gentleman is carrying with an empty chamber; however, he has not trained himself to rack the slide when he draws his pistol. At the critical mome...

Re: Short Range Self Defense Matches - Cedar Ridge Range

We've been doing the Short Range Match for over a year and I am very pleased at what it has become. You can shoot any pistol, loaded to capacity, that you legitimately carry. If you carry a 50 Desert Eagle then come on out! If you are ever in San Antonio or Austin on the second Sunday of the month p...

Re: Pocket Gun Debate: LC9 or Curve

The Sig P238, the P938, and the old standby S&W J frame are all excellent. If you are well accustomed to the 1911-style controls , either Sig is fine. If you normally carry a pistol without a thumb safety I would go with the S&W J-frame. The S&W 642 is light weight and easy to carry. Under stress th...

Re: Idiot LSU prof thinks Joe 6 Pack can print nukes with 3D printers

Someone should warn this LSU assistant professor concerning the rampant use of Dihydrogen Monoxide in our nation's schools and the unquestionable link between DHMO and school violence. Perhaps he could write another article. "A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence ...

Re: Texas Penal Code 9.22 - Necessity

Hope this helps. I am not an attorney and I am not offering any legal advice. Conduct is justified if: (1) the actor reasonably believes the conduct is immediately necessary to avoid imminent harm; (2) the desirability and urgency of avoiding the harm clearly outweigh, according to ordinary standard...

Re: AR Pistol vs AR SBR - Which Is The Best Choice?

300 AAC Blackout 150gr bullet at an average of 1750 fps' from a 10.5 inch barrel. Seems reasonable.

Re: When you think you've see everything!

The issue would be shooting a plated bullet at a high enough velocity to shed the plating would likely deposit excessive lead/copper in the bore. High pressure rounds such as the 10mm firing a plated bullet fast enough to strip the plating and essentially turn the bullet into a blob of lead could cr...

When you think you've see everything!

My "you've got to be kidding" experience for the week. I was the Safety Officer for an IDPA squad today at the local match. It was a close range rifle match that had some pistol transitions. One gentleman fired a stage that required engaging two targets with two pistol shots each. When we went to sc...

Re: AR Pistol vs AR SBR - Which Is The Best Choice?

The AR pistol is a rifle with a short barrel; however, the law in this case works in our benefit by categorizing this AR configuration as a pistol. The buffer tube on the AR pistol is an integral part of the weapon and necessary for function; therefore, it is not a stock. An AK pistol, the Kel-Tec P...
