Re: The Bigotry of gun controllers

My brother in law has a CA ccw. Same thing, simple paper with laminate (since they are done by the county maybe each is different?). Plus, he can only carry the exact gun he applied with, max 3 on the permit if I remember correctly. Not just the same model, but the same serial number... The problem ...

If one brand has more issues of people pulling the trigger, maybe it says more about who buys that brand than the brand itself?

Re: Transfers from California

I can promise, you that California, authorities, don't have, a self alerting database, that will tell them that a gun owner has passed away. Any surviving relatives, are not responsible for their safe keeping, since they are not part of any registration. ... Now Buffalo tried something like that, n...

I would bet that they knew better. Kids don't always behave to the standards they are taught. They call it growing up.

Re: Should I? Or shouldn't I

Sounds like the manufacturer fixed it as far as you can tell? Take it to a gun smith and have them look it over? Sell it and tell the buyer the story you just put here, then it is with full disclosure? Personally I don't trust safeties anyway, so I would not hesitate to use it. A hammer or firing pi...

Re: Put one in the chamber, or don't carry it!

After reading some of the comments, and the title again, I think I get the point, but I don't agree with the all or none statement. I think the point is if you are not comfortable carrying in ready condition, maybe you are not practiced or confident enough to carry at all? And it is less about survi...

Re: Put one in the chamber, or don't carry it!

Not arguing the point. But seems he was going to be in trouble regardless. Several Leo friends have said that closer than 21 feet it is impossible to draw before the BG is on you. Doesn't mean you should not try, but starting face to face you are at disadvantage.

Re: helpful deputy

I asked about the courtroom being in use, he said it is always a courtroom. Was not going to argue the point. Yes, I had a vault, it got cleaned out I'd the car, need to replace it. Showing vs telling. Agree limit unneeded hand movement. Situationally, how I did it caused no stress in either side. I...

So I went to an event my child was in. It had been moved to a courtroom in our county building, though nothing to do with court...I showed up a little late (after hours), and was alone at the entry desk. As I entered the front door there was a metal detector, and a sign saying no sharp objects, etc....

Re: Penal Code-Deadly Force on 06/07 Property

2. You're digging in the woodwork here. They will defend you only if you're carrying in a place where you can do so lawfully. They have no choice. If they would defend you if you carried past an 06 and shot somebody, people would just start ignoring 06's. This is based on a long discussion I had wi...

Re: Notify LEO You're Armed?

I know others may disagree, but I like the idea of a Terry Stop. For me it's a question of, how many felons have been jailed, and how many murders, rapes, etc., have been prevented, versus how many people got their feelings hurt? I would be one to disagree. I know life is not black and white and we...
