Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

I carry. I do so for self-protection of myself and my loved ones. It is a responsibility as well as a right. As a carrying individual, I do not put myself in situations that may raise the odds of having to pull my pistol. It’s not there to bolster me to confront people. This gentleman failed in that...

WTB: CAS Holster / Gear

I’m looking to get into CAS and am in need of a belt/holster rig for two Vaquero 5.5” in .357.

Just seeing if anyone has one they want to offload.

May be interested in other gear as well.

Re: Is deadly forced justified when construction company try

I'm just baffled that "can I shoot" even came up in the scenario "hypothetically" proposed. If you're pondering such use of your weapon, I suggest you lock them all up and reassess and reeducate yourself. Where does this mentality come from and where does it stop?

Re: Accidentally walked in a place that has a 30.06 sign

If you walked by the sign and didn't see it, I suppose the court would decide whether it was "conspicuous" and whether all other legal requirements were met. They'll determine whether you "should have seen it." If you came in through an acceptable entrance that wasn't posted, I would think your chan...

Re: Cabelas Allen "you're printing!"

I find it amusing to pretend I've never handled a pistol and see how they treat and educate me. Some are genuine and it's obvious they want to help. Others are all bravado and stories. One guy even pulled out a Desert Eagle to show me.

Re: Thoughts on SIG?

I like them, always have. Own a P239 as my carry piece, a P938 as my pocket piece, a P226 as my nightstand piece, and an M400 as my "oh crap, it's going down" piece. I used to carry a P229. All have been reliable, though the P938 took some time to get used to without limp wresting it. I like many ot...

Re: Weapons that you DON'T regret selling or trading

NAA Guardian in .25NAA. It was my first pocket pistol. I loved the size, but hated the caliber.

I have a much longer list of regrets when I ran into financial trouble after my divorce. Sold quite a few sentimental pieces. :banghead:

Re: Needing a holster for dress attire

I have a Crossbreed Super Mini-Tuck (P938) and a CompTac MTAC (P239). Both are comfortable. One thing to consider when tucking is that your belt clips will be visible. Now most people don't pay attention, but some (especially CHLers) will notice. The Comptac has C-clips, which minimize what is visib...

Re: wallet/pocket holster for Sig P938

I have the Desantis. It works well. In a tight fit I can still see the outline of the pistol, but doubt others notice it.

I like it for glove box use or any time I an not wearing my crossbreed mini Tuck. It keeps the trigger covered and is ready to store, but allows for a quick and safe draw.

Re: Man Mistakes Gun for Lighter, Accidentally Shoots Hand

Wonder what retention he was using? The story says, "it fell out of his pocket.". How? Did he keep other things in that pocket? Perhaps a jacket pocket? How do you not hear the clunk when it hits the ground or not feel the difference in weight? Must have been one of those foldable derringers or some...
