Re: Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

I look at this as a question of when, not if. Either the technology will become cheap enough to make it standard on a civic, cruze, corolla, etc, etc or the fed will just mandate it. After that, the insurance companies will just jack up the rates for self driving cars to the point that the average p...

Sutherland Springs victims family to sue Academy

I did not see this posted anywhere and mods please move it if it's in the wrong spot. It basically boils down to the fact that he listed his home address as Colorado Springs, CO and that it is illegal to purchase a firearm with an out of state address. I thought this only applies to handguns, not ri...

Re: Need suggestions for a gift

My very first rifle was a 700 ADL in 270 with the walnut stock and a Redfield scope. My Dad bought it used from a guy about to walk into a pawn shop for my 13th birthday. It definitely had a trigger job done and it is extremely accurate, especially since I swapped out that Redfield for a Leupold VX-...

Re: Recommend an AR at $700 max

I keep seeing Radical Firearms from just southwest of Houston. Anyone have any experience? Price point and features are right. When I was buying my first, several people suggested I build my own. That was outside the scope of what I wanted at the time. I would not recommend pushing that idea on a f...

Re: This Gun Instructor Says Many Who Carry A Gun Aren't Trained To Respond To A Shooter

Does everyone realizes that Mike Weisser is HuffPo's resident "gun expert"? He has also been called Mike the anti gun guy. Here is a list of articles he has published on Huffpo and you can make up your own mind.

I've been laughing about the ludicrousness of this since 9am and now I find out that it actually exists and it costs $800?!?!

Re: Shotgun selection

I found a review where the guy talks about the 1400 not cycling the ammo correctly. He also complains about aftermarket chokes not fitting. Not sure if any of this would apply to you, but you might try running a couple of boxes of shells through them just to see how she likes the feel. https://www.y...

Trailblazer Lifecard 22LR

http://gunmagwarehouse.com/blog/trailblazer_firearms_lifecard/ I saw this in a blog. Single shot pistol 22LR that folds into credit card size. Have to unfold it to use it or load it and the owner's manual states it's not to be carried while loaded. Other than the novelty of owning it, can anyone co...

Re: Gunsmithing school at Murray State College

The dorms were much nicer than I expected. The beds, not so much :grumble That is not too surprising. Most younger people can tolerate lousy beds better than old folks. :cool: I vaguely remember that ;) We decided next year we would bring our own inflatable beds. Are they twin size beds? I have a 3...

The course we took was LEAS 1911 Armorer. Neither of us are LEO

Re: Gunsmithing school at Murray State College

I found out about this in June, so my summer was already booked up and I could not attend any classes this year. I do plan on taking some courses next year. Does anyone know if you have to be in Law Enforcement in order to attend the LEAS classes?
