Summertime

As someone who hasn't yet got the plastic yet, is there such a thing as summer carry and winter carry? I was considering my Glock 23 for winter and the Walther PPK/S for summer. I'm currently looking for holsters, any advice? Thanks in advance.

Re: What's the Origin of Your User Name?

I'm a big baseball fan. The history, traditions, it really is (was) Americas pastime. Baseball is almost as old as our country. The year in my user name should be fairly obvious, the country changed towards the end of that year.

Re: April Applications

I was reading some of the stories from the boys in the 'March Applications' room -- some had 90+ day waits. A few had written to their reps in Austin. How many days is a 'good' time to write? I'm at just over 60 days since my application was received in Austin.

Re: Back from D.C.

The supreme court decision on the DC gun ban will arrive tomorrow or Thursday. I listened again to the oral arguments over this past weekend and I really think we are in for some good news. My guess is it will be either 6-3 or 7-2 against the ban. Any other guesses? Oh! and welcome back guys.

Re: 3 months exactaly

Dude -- I agree with LabRat, hang in there. I sent my packet to Austin about a month behind you. There are a ton of applications they are plowing through, they will get to yours soon and then mine a month or so later. Trust me, it will be worth the wait.

Re: CHL'ers: What would you do in this scenario?

I would: draw weapon, thumb the safety off. Look for other BG's in store, (assuming there are no others) maneuver using cover and wait for a clear shot on BG #1. If clear shot made available, take a center mass shot. If shot not available, get license plate number, good description, observe which di...

Re: Wish list for 2009

Ok, since this is a Wish list, how about a law that permits open licensed carry? If you have a CHL, you may carry openly or concealed. Am I dreaming?

Re: Georgia Cop Gets 4 1/2 Years for Lying After Raid

What a terrible story. First they lie about the warrant, kill an innocent citizen, then plant drugs to cover the mistake. It's too bad he didn't get 10 or 20 years.

Re: You're doing it wrong

Being a non AR owner, even IF the mag would go in, it wouldn't fire would it? That leads me to think the picture has been altered, OR the guy in the video is correct. She slapped in a mag (incorrectly) and posed for the picture. The last choice is adrenaline took over, and she incorrectly put in the...

Re: Robber armed with BB gun meets shotgun

I read one account of the story that said a local LEO was driving up and witnessed the neighbor shooting the robber. The story also said this was the second time the shop had been held up in two weeks. The bad guy was wearing a black ski mask, and he was carrying a BB gun. I just have one question, ...
