Re: New Forum Features

This new format does not go full screen on my PC when the full screen button is clicked. Stays the same - reduced screen. (Firefox) Also do see any "My Board" link. It goes full screen on mine when I log in. Otherwise, it's about 900 pixels. (I didn't know there was a full screen button! :oops: ) I...

Re: Which Shoots Better Or Is It Me?

I had a similar situation way back. Except mine was the reverse. I shot an M&P 9mm next to the G26. I was blowing the center out of the 10 ring with the Glock, and did worse with the M&P. So, it's all an individual thing. Obviously I bought the Glock.

Re: CHL holder attempts to stop fatal hit & run.

I see nothing in the posted news artice that says the shots were fired when the man was "fleeing." It said: "As the woman was leaving the property, the man got into his Ford Focus and ran her over several times, authorities said. A witness with a concealed handgun license began firing at the driver ...

I guess. They have Spec Ops forces.

Re: What do you drink coffee from?

I have one cup of decaf in the morning. I reach into the cabinet and grab the closest mug that will hold coffee. Easy. Coffee is the same no matter which one I grab. Decaf? Is that like airsoft? No, but it beats nothing. You comment reminds me of the old SNL skit "quien es mas macho?" :mrgreen: If ...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

I don't know why people are surprised at the pricing for the 1911s. I expected them to be north of 2K. $1050 is a deal. I've seen pristine ones at auction for 5K. If all you want is a cheap 1911, get one of those made in the third world. While some of these might be unissued, they MIGHT have been c...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

No doubt they have collector interest. I can see these being sold out year after year to collectors serious enough to pay that price. But to pay that much for a collector 1911 that some may not want to shoot, when you can easily buy a similar, brand new 1911 for the same or less, leaves these for t...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

I think the point of these 1911s is being missed. They are just like the Garands, and M1 Carbines sold by the CMP. They are "history" and not meant to compete with modern civilian 1911s. They are collector items. They will "auction" those that are deemed most collectible, and "sell" those less colle...

Re: The "I am a marine not a soldier"

Well if you go back far enough, you would have the Army Air Corps instead of the Air Force. Not sure what Army Air Corps members were called. Sir... they were called Sir. :cheers2: Most probably were, but I'm sure there were at least a few who actually worked for a living. The Army Air Corps (8th A...

Re: Why and When? When did American Society become stupid and why did our society embrace so much hate?

It's all part of the plan that's been in place for over a 100 years. The big difference is technology has allowed it to kick into high gear and the planners are not wasting time. Exactly! The left has taken advantage of every modern communication method and device available. In addition to controll...

Re: University Installs ‘Cry Closet’

Great way to prepare the snowflakes for the real world. Worked for offshore drilling companies for almost 40 years; would loved to have seen the reaction when I went offshore and asked the toolpusher or rig manger if they had a crying room to chill out in if things got too stressful. I flew workers...

You'd go into a Jewish owned business and all the staff would be arguing with each other like it was recreation and it apparently was... For years I trained Israeli Air Force pilots. We had everything from young lieutenants to generals. Most fun was when we had a general as pilot in command and a l...

Re: Van plows into pedestrians in Toronto

I watched two news conferences in a row. First was about the shooting at the Waffle House. All about guns and legal questions about gun laws. Very little about the shooter (perpetrator). Next was the Toronto van attack. No mention of van laws, or van rental laws, only about the driver (perpetrator.)...
