Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

this doesn't make any sense, the law says at most 3 days to reject....nowhere in there does it say 3.5 weeks. if the rejection doesn't come in 3 days the FFL should make the transfer. It is up to the FFL if they make the transfer or not. When I worked the gun counter at Academy many years ago, thei...

Re: Bloomberg campaign in TX

They are referring to the "gun show loophole"... sales between individuals do not require a background check. They are pushing for the universal background check, which would require all gun sales, even between private parties, to undergo the background check. Not sure how they plan to enforce that,...

Re: Oklahoma Constitutional Carry

On the other hand, a Texan who is carrying under vehicle carry and drives into OK may not know that they can put the gun in a holster and carry it on their person. But then again, if they don't know that OK has CC and they don't have an LTC, they might not own a holster in the first place. Worst ca...

Re: Oklahoma Constitutional Carry

Unfortunately, the "other" discussion has nothing to do with reciprocity or the issue of how Texans will be handled if stopped in Oklahoma. It has devolved into a pissing match and veered far off topic. My question has to do with the legal issue of how do non Oklahomans who may be pulled over, hand...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

As much as I hate it, it does appear that Academy broke the law as it is written. Since Ruger sells the rifle with a 30 round magazine, as well as a "compliant" model with a 10 round magazine under different model numbers and SKUs, it does appear that Academy did break the law. Many of us complain ...

Re: Had a few rounds explode in my Ruger SR22 pistol.

Just wanted to post the conclusion to this. Ruger replaced my barrel, extractor, and slide. I inspected the gun before shipping it to them and it looks like there was an indentation made on the chamber from dry firing. Guessing that's reason the casings fit so tight in the chamber. No more dry fire...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

I picked up a compact Remington 1187 Sportsman in 20 gauge for my wife today at Walmart. It was on clearance for $250. You can't beat that price for a semi auto shotgun! Trying to get her to go shoot with me every once in a while, so this was perfect for our needs. Not as nice as my Beretta A300 tho...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

If you are going the semi-auto on a budget route, take a look at the Beretta A300 Outlander. My son and I have had these for several years now and have not had any issues with them. Not as pretty as other Berettas, but not as expensive either. Franchi Affinity and Weatherby SA-08 also come to mind f...

Re: Metal Detectors are Wal-Mart???

I seriously doubt that they are metal detectors. My bet would be that they are RFID readers for asset tracking and inventory, or possibly a test for a new "scan and go" type system that allows customers to avoid waiting in line for a cashier.

Re: Ruger announces new .40 cal PC Carbine model

.40 cal makes sense, it just requires a few changes from 9mm. Agree. I'm guessing that since the Glock 9mm and .40 cal share frames, the magazine adapter didn't need to change. To go to a .45, they would need to make a new magazine adapter for the Glock mags. 9mm to .40 was probably just a barrel s...
