Re: SCOTUS Allows Sandy Hook Lawsuit to Proceed

Well, good thing we have that Trump-packed SCOTUS to protect our 2A rights. :banghead: 2 is not a majority. How did Gorsuch and Kavanaugh vote re Cert? I’d like to know how the justices voted as well. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find much on the Supreme Court’s website other than a simple denial to h...

Re: 1911 Bug bites again. Which one?

I have the Colt Competition in stainless. Funny how you want a blued but can only find stainless, while I wanted stainless but could only find blued at the time. Anyway, I really enjoy mine. It’s more accurate than I am, but I hope to improve with time. Mine has never had a jam or failure of any kin...

Re: Crossfire Closing

I’ve never gone there but it’s disappointing to hear of yet another shooting range closure. I could be wrong, but it seems like there’ve been more range closures in TX this last year than in the past.

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

So far no reliability issues with my Colt Competition after about 700 or so rounds. It’s eaten all different kinds of ball and JHP ammo with no problems. I realize the round count isn’t too high yet, but so far I’m real happy with it.

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

I carry a full-size Government 1911 most of the time. When I need to carry something smaller or lighter for whatever reason, I carry a Shield 9mm, though I am strongly considering picking up a lightweight Commander or "CCO" 1911 like a Dan Wesson Valkyrie to fill that role. Here's why I carry a 191...

Re: This makes me sick.

This is an interesting case, but I think the article is a bit confusing. Re-reading it revealed this is a custody case, and the jury only decided on who gets sole custody. The jury didn’t say the mother could transition the boy to the female gender, although it’s possible she’ll have the sole author...

Re: Check under the hood of your truck!

I’ve heard of mice and rats chewing electrical wiring under the hood, but I’ve never seen a rat nest that big under there! What kind of vehicle is that and where was it parked?

Re: The Tactical Games coming to Texas

Sounds like it may be too much fun to pass up! Age is just a number. I’m in my 50’s and have had my share of injuries and health problems, but as long as I can still move around I figure why pass up the chance? I have no delusions of being competitive with others, many of whom may well be young, fit...
