Re: Cali, Oregon and Washington handgun laws?

Good to know about Alaska. But yeah, if you know what you're going to do with your handguns (go to the range with family/friends), then you may consider bringing them. If you want to have them with you "just because", I suggest against it. To me, it is way more trouble than it's worth just to have s...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

I would attend if closer but 2 hrs 1 way for me is a tad far, sure like to see one on the east side somewhere garland, Rockwall or?? Once this first one is established and we're sure it's not going to just die out if we spawn off a second one, I think we'll look at doing one in the northeast. It's ...

Re: The 1911 plunge

I've shot quite a few 1911s, and own a couple at this point. The two that really stood out were the Rock Islands and the Springfields. The former is cheap. Just plain cheap. The quality is adequate, as is the consistency, build, and looks. Overall it's quite sloppy. The only good thing about it is t...

Re: Where are all of the "printers"?

I can tell you I print like crazy if you look hard enough. The problem is that I can't comfortably and reliably shoot anything that's not a double stack due to the size of my hand, so the smallest gun I have is an FNS-9C. I can carry it IWB, but it still bulges quite a bit. And tucked into a shirt, ...

Re: The Bigotry of gun controllers

Santa Clara County, the heart of silicon valley and where I came from, is even worse. ~50 permit holders and almost 2 million people there. And of those, same thing. Rich people only. You an ex-Cop who is now transporting ATM money for a living? Sorry. Are you billionaire Larry Ellison? Well, sure. ...

Re: 1911 firing pin return spring question

All rightly. Thank yall for the replies. I guess the "extra power" one I have really is normal and not some crazy off-spec spring that got stuck in there somehow. Time to get another one.

1911 firing pin return spring question

I got myself a new 1911 yesterday and was swapping parts around so I can sell the old one off while keeping some of the upgraded parts from the old one. One thing I noticed is that they both have very different firing pin springs. One is super easy to compress. The other is so stiff that I had to we...

Re: LTC friendly movie theater

Cinemark Denton for me. I'm perfectly fine with 30.07 signs myself. I understand that some people may find a civvy holstering a handgun out in the open may be disconcerting, so I respect that. I wish their minds would change, but exercising open carry may achieve the opposite effect. This is why I o...

Re: Which pistol red dot system should I buy and why?

+1 on the RMR if you have the money. If you're like me and can't fathom to spend so much on a simple RDS, then I'd suggest you get either a Vortex or a Fastfire. The former has been on my 500 s&w for some time now with no problems. Even if there was a problem, I'm satisfied that they'll honor their ...

Re: Oregon Confiscation Law

That is very sad to hear. It's disappointing to see that some states are just going so "progressive" that their governments are turning into authoritarian regimes. That really does sound ironic to me. Their next hope now, I guess, is an injunction on the bill like the standard capacity magazine ban ...

Re: Oregon Confiscation Law

As if the household thing wasn't bad enough... I read this bit on the site: It also allows any police officer to make the same accusations about you to a judge. The police officer does not need to know you or even have ever met you. Welp, if that goes through, both 2A and 4A are basically done in Or...

Re: Gun Safe Recommendations

May as well put in my $0.02. Simply put, there are two parts to owning a safe: the protection of valuables against thieves, and the protection of valuables against fire. The former is actually easier than you might expect. Just bolt it down to the ground so the baddies can't just wheel it away. Make...

Re: Near Fight and Threats in Congress

There's one thing I don't get. If the democrats are so intent on using their own ideology of immigration, why don't they introduce new bills to reflect their viewpoint? Why ignore the laws and promote anarchy? It's ironic that today, the only ones who are pushing for proper immigration reform are a ...

Re: Which gun is it for you?

I can't say I have a favorite one per se. I love most of my firearms equally. But the rifle that is nearest/dearest to me would be the Petronov AK-47. For my handguns, it would be the Magnum Research BFR chambered in 500 S&W. The AK has very good craftsmanship, and does very Russian things when you ...
