Re: Lost 100% hearing in one ear....

Here’s my 2 cents: I woke up one morning deaf in both ears. I too, am a musician. I saw 4 ENTs and an audiologist. No luck. Not even conductive hearing. A year later, the local Deaf & Hard of Hearing Center tested me. I could hear a little, very faintly. But the tinnitus was still louder. I got hear...

Re: Preferred online ammo dealer

I’ve used FreedomMunitions several times. Their 357sig stuff is top notch. The reman is around $15/box, and the new stuff isn’t much more.

Re: Question on traveling on AA with ammo in the suitcase

You can check up to 11 lbs of ammo. It must be in the manufacturer’s original packaging OR an other container specifically designed to hold the ammo (like those plastic flip-top boxes at academy.). Ammo in magazines is not allowed, and that is an AA rule, not tsa or faa. Delta is cool with it in mag...

Re: Favorite carry method?

Appendix carry 75% of the time. That's with subcompacts or a j-frame. It's comfortable, 100% concealed and as a bonus, when the girlfriend backhands me in the gut after a smart remark - I get a good laugh. The rest f the time I carry IWB at 4:00. Very occasionally I'll get on a week-long kick for OW...

Re: Double-Action Only Semi-Automatic Pistol

I bought a Beretta Pico .380 specifically because it’s DAO (and very concealable!). The trigger pulls the hammer back on each shot. The slide does not cock it. I’m quite satisfied with this pistol and carry it regularly.

Re: This is why I love Ted Nugent.

I had a nice, long sit-down conversation with the man once, totally out of the blue. I went up to him at an airport, waiting on our plane. Totally approachable guy. I only asked to shake his hand but he grabbed mine, said “sit down, brother. Talk to me a while.” I will attest that he is one of the f...

Re: Brookline Massachusetts Wants to Register Security Camera Owners

They have the optional registration here in Corpus Christi, too. I thought, “great idea!”, and then read all the fine print saying I would then be “required” to give access when requested. Nay, I say! I’ve given video to investigating officers twice, as well as an arson investigator because it was t...

Re: Alligator defense question

I have no personal experience in this, but an old coworker used to hunt alligators, legally. He only used a crossbow since “no bullet is effective”, he’d say. His scary story was when on a Jon boat, he inadvertently came too close to a nesting mama gator. It nearly broke the boat in half. Caught off...

Re: Medical Facilities

I think I've visited an extraordinary number of medical facilities as of late, both for myself and my folks, and I made a conscious effort to observe the many differences. First off - I saw that most doctor's offices I visited inside a medical building are not posted and stand alone offices are post...

Re: Arizona Timeline

I did the Arizona cwp 3 years ago. 60 days exactly to my mailbox. I got it because it was only $60, they accepted a copy of my chl-100 for training, and it’s good to have a backup. At the time, it added a couple states for me. Real smooth process.

Re: TX: TSA misses handgun, owner turns self in

Sadly, this happens more often than any one person knows. I spent many years at the airport observing security checkpoints. Pre-TSA was a joke I frequently passed with prohibited items undetected (as a test!). TSA brought the technology and it could be 100% effective if it weren't for the human fact...

Re: OK: Woman shoots ex-boyfriend-stalker-invader

Sounds almost identical to a friend of mine’s incident. The ex boyfriend broke in via a window, girlfriend locked herself in the bathroom, my friend hit the ex 5 times with .357 magnum and the guy still crawled to the bathroom and ripped the door off the hinges before passing out from blood loss.

Re: Poll: Nonresident Out of State License

I got an Arizona mainly because it was cheap and they accepted my Texas training. Washington I got because they don't recognize Texas, I have friends to visit there, and it was $45, took 15 minutes at a sheriff's office and arrived 60 days later. Texas gained more states recently so I may let the Ar...

Re: Wtb holster

I actually just found an XDM hard case with all the essentials inside when helping a friend move into a rental house. Everything inside except the gun! No one claimed it and I aquired it. Only the mag loader and mag holder fits my XD40. The rest needs a good home. PM me if you want it. Oh and there’...
