Re: Heckler & Koch Blackballs Israel

Thread title is a bit of hyperbole and somewhat misleading. It reads like H&K singled out Israel. When reality is The company has pledged no longer to sell arms into warzones or to countries that violate corruption and democracy standards, including Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, the United Arab E...

Re: Lost Handgun...

Heck, you can even record the phone call and store the recording in the safe XD Not so sure I'd do that with all the people recording police stops being threatened with jail. They say the audio portion of the recordings violates federal wiretap law. http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,20...

Re: Drive-by shooting goes poorly for thugs

Words mean something, sentience composition as well.... Wounded the three thugs exited the vehicle and continued the pitched firefight on foot. The homeowner who is an avid marksman continued returning fire hitting all three, stopping them before they could reach his property. One of the men was imm...

Re: Carrying during the storm

Since then, my wife has not given me any strange looks when she sees my gun. :biggrinjester: Such a good wife. But seriously, my wife got worried recently when she saw my EDC still at home after I had left. She even called me. What she didn't know was that I had put a different one on that day. I'm...

Re: Harvey, GRB in Houston No Guns

I was teaching class this weekend in Austin at the Delco center. There was at one point an unenforceable 30.06 sign at the parking lot entrance some months back. It was reported and came down one night never to be seen or talked about again. Fast forward to this weekend, the site was designated a ev...

Tow people don't need to exit the vehicle to ask directions, especially going in different directions. Good point, though I suppose the same reason I and a friend would have gotten out had I had a friend with me that night/...might be they same reason they both did....because you never know, and ba...

Re: New to Me rifle

Thanks for the reply. If I find myself wishing I could more quickly adjust the length of my sling, I'll take another look at the Vickers. Its a touch and feel thing.. Find one to use, even if its just a set up in the gun store, gun show, or a friends rifle. I don't get to Huston often, but if your ...

Re: First time as a civilian drawing my weapon preparing to engage

I'm happy that the OP's instance worked out better. I've played the event back copious times now, I don't "THINK" I missed anything, and I don't "THINK" I should have done something different. I don't "THINK" there was a threat I missed. Any number of variables to what...

Re: New to Me rifle

If you meant the sling, then thanks// I was introduced to the Vickers design, by Larry Vickers when he and his team came to instruct a course for a few of us before deployment. Used one of his first slings 2007-2008 Iraq and been a fan ever since. What makes the Vickers sling worth $50 when a stand...
