Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

You can also purchase a SA/DA pistol which you could carry in DA mode ( thumb safety would be optional). Trigger pull for DA mode increases dramatically ( mine goes from 4 to 11 lbs). I believe this is how the LA Police Dept. use to carry their Beretta 92s. This is my preferred method of carrying. ...

Re: TX: Let the homeless pick thru dumpsters

I was always appalled at the amount of food thrown away at the end of the business day at several restaurants which I either remodeled or built from ground up. Mc Donals was very bad about throwing away perfectly good burgers and salads. When I asked one franchisee about donating the food to a homel...

Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

Buy a good gun belt and a holster you like ( I started out with Crossbreed and couldn’t be happier). Also, try not to constantly check your carry and give your self away. Just trust the carry combo you choose.

Re: Whataburger majority stake sold to Chicago investment firm

The taste has gone downhill in the last few years. I don't see it getting any better. I received my first “nuked” Whataburger in 45 years of eating there. I have also had a fantastic burger in the last year. QC is surely going South. I have not been inside a whataburger in awhile. I do the drive th...

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

Maybe the act really was that easy for him. But all of those people? They didn't harm him- he wouldn't have recognized any if them had he seen them even during the flight.

Re: Irresponsible dog owner

Re: Ask Amy...

Children should be taught to fear guns until they are old enough to be taught to responsibly handle them (even if they never willingly do so). The basic, safe handling of a firearm is a life skill. When the population was largely rural it was simply passed down like changing a tire or watering plan...
