Re: Heavy vs Light Bullets in Short-Barreled 9-mm Pistols

"Short barrel" usually means less than 4", generally 3.5" or so. Are you shooting a revolver or auto? Revolvers lose the most energy, and will hit lower to POA, with lighter bullets. Most modern pistol rounds are built around the 4-5" auto, and, all other things being equal, 1/2" either way is not ...

Re: TX: Pizza Hut gal rousts robbers with mezzaluna

Three guys with a crowbar invade Pizza Hut to rob it. One guy goes into the kitchen and assaults a female employee who is holding a "mezzaluna-type pizza cutter" (basically a sword-size knife with a big curved belly and a handle on each end), dragging the employee and the cutter to the floor. Anoth...

Re: New (10-4) Gun and Ammo auction in Houston

Make sure to expand the "Terms of Sale" link. - There's an 18% surcharge for internet sales, on top of the 8.25% sales tax - If the sales house doesn't receive your FFLs information within 7 days, you forfeit the firearm without a refund - If you opt to pick up the firearm in person at their Houston...

Re: Private Security and CHL

They can do LTC course, but they cannot act as security - and in this case it seems as a Personal Protection Officer (PPO) without being licensed by the state under Chapter 1702. It's one thing if they are allowed to carry for work, but if the intention is for them to be security they must be licen...

Re: WTS: 7.62x39 ammo Seabrook TX

I'm interested, if it doesn't work out with UTHornsFan. Any chance you could post a couple pics of the actual rounds? I'd like to see there's no rust / corrosion, since it's steel cased ammo.

Re: Shotgun by the door / ready condition?

I've had enough mud daubers to keep the postman from delivering to the front porch mailbox. AND I have a family heirloom rifle that my father cleaned out a mud dauber nest the best he could in the 1960's. I want to set up this 'alligator' gun to be ready even if a year or two has passed since it's ...

Re: Florida girl’s mother shot and killed during first day of online class as teacher watches

I believe the issue in the Black community all goes back to family values. Or the lack of them. Gangs have replaced the family structure. There is a reason the vast majority of gang members are black. "Respect" is everything in gang culture and their definition of respect is completely twisted. I r...

Very sorry for the loss of your friend. Praying for you and his family, and that you all find comfort in God during what seems a senseless loss.

Re: ND - some blood

Ouch! In addition to corrective actions #1 & #2 that the guy pointed out (buying a holster that's actually made for the particular firearm, & not getting complacent), I'd add #3: Actually LOOK at the holster and ensure the re-holstering is free of any obstructions that can interact w/ the trigger......

A great resource for knowledge has been lost. Here's a link to his website with a couple free videos / interviews.

Really wish he would have made full-length videos of his seminars, or written a book.
