Re: The Boy Scouts Filing Bankruptcy After A String Of “Woke” Decisions Caused It To Go Broke

Wall Street Journal also discussed this and I am a big fan of the Boy Scouts but the reason that they may be facing bankruptcy is declining numbers as well as lawsuits from sexual abuse allegations. The lawsuits are probably the main reason. Yes, this seems to be the main issue, and it goes back de...

Re: Got a light bearing holster today, and...

Well, it has to have an opening large enough for the light, which is probably considerably wider than the trigger guard.

Iran ignores limits on uranium enrichment. Forges ahead on weapons grade uranium production.

Re: The war with Iran

Saddam Hussein led a minority Sunni government. The majority if Iraqi’s are Shia. It seems that Iran has essentially taken, or is on the verge of taking, control of the Iraqi government.

Re: Kimber customer service

If you can’t fix it yourself, I would suggest contacting Ed Vandenberg in your part of town.

You mean a 342PD. Mine is not for sale, but one pops up on Gunbroker occasionally. Good luck.
No, I believe the 342pd is chambered in .38 Special. I am looking for the .32 H&R Magnum 432pd.

Go to the range and use the laundered ammo for practice. Function check the magazine while you are there.

Re: Houston Man playing with gun shoots himself

“At some point, he racked the gun, not realizing he had placed a round in the chamber, according to police. He removed the magazine, put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, shooting himself.” I’m torn between just thinking “stupid hurts”, and thinking what a shame it is that no one taught th...

Re: FL:Jewelry Store robbery, UPS truck jacking, police chase, shoot out, 4 dead

Too many law enforcement officers think they are in military combat. I regularly see a group of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies eating lunch in camouflage uniforms - why the heck do LEO’s need camo, especially in a large metropolitan area? Too much of a military mindset. I know they have a tough, d...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

There are a number of good options, including the GP 100, and the S&W 627 and 686. If you are planning to shoot .357 magnum rounds on a regular basis, I would suggest a revolver weighing at least 32 ounces, and preferably around 40 ounces.
