Re: Shoulder Surgery Questions

My dad had rotator cuff surgery done about 2 years ago now. He was a terrible patient! The night after his surgery I caught him in the kitchen digging into an ice cream container with his arm. He pushed into doing most things way too soon, using his shoulder even when he was strictly forbidden from ...

Re: Take Austin Back

it is too bad that groups only post information on facebook, guess they do not realize or care that many people who would attend refuse to use it We are working on that. We know many can't be reached through one media outlet. We're burning 24/7 trying to get information out to as many as possible. ...

Re: Sig P320 as an EDC option

I purchased the p320 compact with the manual safety on Memorial Day to replace my p238 as my EDC. Due to some family complications I haven't been able to shoot it yet but that should change tomorrow! Glad to know others have found success with it as their EDC.

Re: Interesting Psychology: Open Carry & The Weapons Effect

Now when I leave the house she will ask "Hey you are carrying right?" She feels safer and sleeps better knowing we are armed. And that is great, so I'm not knocking it. But is she yet to the point where she's considering carrying one herself ? My wife was sort of like yours.....not anti-2...

Re: Interesting Psychology: Open Carry & The Weapons Effect

Texas Tornado, me thinks you MAY have touched a raw nerve for some. Police uniforms, along with military uniforms, give most citizens the illusion that a strong & calming force is now present and will solve all issues to everyones satisfaction. Not always true. They are human just like the rest...

Re: Interesting Psychology: Open Carry & The Weapons Effect

Ok, here's the proof of bad science. Note this: In one field experiment,[2] a confederate driving a pickup truck purposely remained stalled at a traffic light for 12 seconds to see whether the motorists trapped behind him would honk their horns (the measure of aggression). The truck contained eithe...

Interesting Psychology: Open Carry & The Weapons Effect

People oft debate that we should OC based on the notion that an exposed weapon will deter acts of violence, but how accurate are the assumptions we make about OC? Sudies in Social Psychology strongly suggest that when people are agitated, the presence of a weapon object is correlated with more aggre...

Re: Loaded chamber in posted 30.07 locations legal?

My appologies guys, i was brought up with knowing the dumb questions are the ones that arent asked. I guess i asked because i know other states define in more detail whether or not youre carrying legally, those other states also define laws while carrying you cannot have the firearm loaded.
