Re: YARC NRA birthday event (Ham Radio)

I was unable to work them myself, had trouble hearing them on 40 meters due to what sounded like AM traffic covering them up. Never heard them on 20 meters.

The Yavapai Amateur Radio Club is having a special event for the 147th birthday of the NRA at gunsite, mostly. The special event call sign is K7NRA Details at https://www.w7yrc.org/nrabirthday

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

when considering the difference in polling between Ted and Beto you also need to remember that Beto outspent Ted by a significant margin, had major star power pushing for him, The media in his pocket, and a serious socialist movement in his corner -- yet he still lost. On paper, and in the minds of ...

Re: NEW Military 6.8mm rifle

6.8 is a good choice but I wish they’d just go BACK to 7.62x39 or 308 Fixed it for ya! Doubtless the military will spend billions on this before it’s settled and the soldiers/marines who have to carry them will look at the new thing and ask “who thought this would work for us?” As far as I know the...

Re: Insurance companies

I have, and recommend getting, glass coverage. My deductable on a new windshield or repair is practically $0. In 5 years of owning a Jeep I have had more rock chips repaired on it than everything else over the rest of my life.

Re: NY: 20 die in horrific limo involved car accident at rural country store

We need a law to ban these high capacity assault auto(matic)-mobiles. No one needs a car capable of killing 20 people at a time.

Re: Cody Wilson charged in sexual assault of minor

Solicitation of a prostitute is a crime just as sex with a minor(16) is a crime for an adult(30?). If this guy is guilty of one or both of these crimes then he needs to be punished. With that out of the way this story just isn't passing the sniff test. Consider that at this point it is a very conven...

Re: Words to engrave

When I had a rifle engraved, all I could find was laser engraving. I hear that, finding a good engraver is hard, fortunately I have a friend. Bobby Tyler of Tyler Gun works (on the cover of the current Brownells catalog) has access to multiple engravers and he can refinish the part(s) afterwards. O...

Re: Words to engrave

I know you mentioned laser engraving, however have you considered having it actually engraved into the metal using more traditional methods? I know of at least one shop here in Texas that uses several very skilled engravers and can refinish the slide afterwards.

Re: Do not shoot truck rustlers

Based on the story, the 'victims' previous charges, and such I wonder if a claim of self defense or defense of property can be made as it looks like he may have been committing a criminal act himself (solicitation of a prostitute).

Re: Thoughts on open carry

Are there documented incidents in Houston where open carrying citizens have been targeted by bad guys during robbery? Or is multiple bad guys robbing a business the new M.O. there? Everyone's situation is different. If its the criminals in Houston have gotten better at recognizing that citizens may...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I think a lot of people are afraid to show support, or even state their position when asked by pollsters, due to fear of ANTIFA and their like. I know three people who say they are supporting Beto to people they do not know but are very open of their support for Cruz when in private and they will te...
