Re: Not-so-non-violent dispute resolution

Big guy was trying to get a seat for his mother, but lacked the manners to pull it off. Heck, I'd have invited her over, enjoyed my meal and maybe a bit of conversation while her son stewed in line. :tiphat: It's amazing what a respectful tone and a humble demeanor can accomplish. Big guy might hav...

Re: Kimber? Springfield? Ruger?

About a week ago I bought an EMP .40 from a friend who needed some quick cash to pay his tax bill. I had seen these and always thought they looked like a cool option, but the price is pretty high so I never bit. This time though, the stars seemed to align so I now have one in the collection. Accordi...

Re: Should I conceal carry a .22 pistol?

I would argue that a .22 you feel confident with is better than another caliber that you don't shoot well. My wife had zero exposure to firearms when we got married. She learned to shoot but was very recoil sensitive. When she got her CHL she started carrying a Walther TPH .22LR. As she got more com...

Re: Remington Bankruptcy

Poor management ruining an iconic brand. They can make it through the bankruptcy, but not doing business the way that they are. When I was a youngster, Remington was one of the first brands I thought of when the subject of rifles or shotguns came up. Now it is nowhere near the top of my list. I real...

Re: Interesting Non Car Buying Experience

Going to a dealership is like playing a game of 3-card Monty. It's amazing what so many of those places try to get away with. I bought my last new car in 1991. It was a crazy, 4 hour shell game to get them to sell it to me for the price that was written on the windshield. I gave that car to my dad i...

Re: 5.7x28 - the real skinny?

Which Elite rounds would be illegal in Texas for the 5.7? Does it depend whether they are loaded into a pistol or a PS90? Thanks in advance. As far as I know, all Elite Ammunition loads are legal in Texas. They have a list of states and counties that they will not sell to, but unless someone knows ...

I think Dynamis Alliance beat you to the punch. They debuted something similar at Shot show this year.

Re: Spooked in a WM parking lot

I try not to surprise folks if at all possible. If I have someone parked near me and they don't seem to be aware I'm coming, I will generally start whistling a tune. It alerts them to my presence and makes me seem non-threatening. That being said, so many young folks have earbuds in and are glued to...

Re: RV, camper van, site trailer, and work truck carry considerations

The M&P is a great choice, but acquiring a weapon is only the first step. I would recommend you take a tactical training course. They have a number of good courses that teach tactics in close quarters and vehicles which would give you a lot of knowledge and a better understanding of some of the dyna...

Re: Recommend A Zippered Rectangular OWB Pack

I have been using a 511 fanny pack to carry when I am jogging. I have used it 5-6 times a week for the last 3 years or so. It works great and has held up really well. It can discreetly carry glock 19 allowing fairly quick access. It's great for joggers, hikers, or bikers or anyone else who doesn't, ...

No, I don't think anyone should have to have a different license to carry in more places.
Yes, I would get an enhanced license if it was available and enabled me to carry legally in more places.
Same here. :iagree:

Re: Leaving gun in car?

I am very rarely in a position where I have to leave my EDC in my truck. What I have done it put a cable lock around both the driver and passenger seat posts with the key in the lock. If I have to leave my gun, or if a passenger needs to, I slip the cable lock through the barrel, close the lock and ...

Re: Rig Job

It seems to me that Uranium One is much more serious than any DNC slighting of Sanders. Sanders is a communist kook. He doesn't get sympathy from me. If Hillary walks away from Uranium One with no charges, it will be a sign of just how corrupt the Washington Beast has become. As far as Donna Brazile...

Re: Red Dot sight question.

I attended a low vis carbine class last week and got to look at a lot of red dots. One of the instructors was using a Leupold LCO which looked really nice. I may put that one on my next build. I have EOTech on my main carbine and ran that for the two day class. I have had it for a few years and it a...
