Re: IN: Woman kills officer's attacker, now getting sued

The rules are a bit different in civil cases. Also, just having to respond to the filing of the case means you have to get your own lawyer and you are out a certain amount of money. If it goes forward, it costs more. This is all if you win. If you lose, you are liable for the judgement and attorney ...

Re: My guns don't need to be pretty, they just need to work

Smooth function and reliability are a beauty all their own. A pretty gun that doesn't work, handles like a brick, and/or has a crappy trigger isn't very pretty. But that gets into what makes a gun beautiful. If it was just a block of inert metal with a nice finish and machine work, we wouldn't care ...

Re: Benbrook PD Called for Gun Tshirt in Park

Johnston admitted to self-awareness of his own provocation. He was quoted in the news article as such. Each one of us must claim a healthy degree of ownership in the reactions that we elicit from others. There's another active thread on here titled "Is Deviancy the New Norm?" That thread'...

Re: MI: 14 year old comes to door for directions, shot at by homeowner

Who opens the door to a stranger anymore? The photo in the 5 facts, shows an awfully sophisticated looking 14 year old teenager, who got lost walking to school. Who opens the door and then starts yelling about a burglary? The story just sounds odd. If the police are saying the video is consistent w...

Re: Banks getting in on the action

I pulled out of BofA years ago. When I closed my account, they asked for two forms of picture ID. I used my CHL and DL. The teller didn't like it, but she took it as a second ID. That was the last time I set foot in one of their banks.

If you are just planning on using a light at home, this one seems to work well for me. It attaches and detaches easily and is rechargeable. I haven't put mine through hard use, but it is handy.

Re: Is the .40 dead?

It isn't dead, but it is less popular. I don't see it going away anytime soon. And I agree that not all gun types shoot it very well. Some guns do okay, just a little more recoil. Some guns seem to make the recoil real rough. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that most of the guns were j...

Re: Sig P226 Legion or Sig P226 bi-tone W German

I have the Rex Zero 1. That is close enough for me.

The Legion picture looks pretty nice. I just have mixed history with Sig pistols.

Re: Local Judge sues shooting range, earplug manufacturer

The same ear plugs used for shooting are used in industrial plants and construction sites all over the place (much more industrial/construction use than shooting use). I am sure the manufacturer has plenty of experience defending cases like this.

Re: Local Judge sues shooting range, earplug manufacturer

I think he is going to have to prove that 1) he did no other activities in same time frame that could contribute to hearing loss, and 2) that he lost the hearing at that time. I really doubt he has hearing tests bracketing that day to prove it was based on that one event. I also wonder if range offe...
