Re: Las Vegas Tower Controller suffers a stroke

Good Evening All. I know some controllers and have a little inside info. First off, it's fairly standard for controllers to combine up positions on the mid shift. It's also normal for longer than average breaks on the mid shift. She wasn't "fired", but resigned under pressure. The rumor is that her...

The shooter in this situation introduced himself into the conflict. Would that not be the same as starting a fight and then shooting the guy because he punched you?
It sounds like that is what the jury thought.

Whenever I see the words "Best Gun", "Best Ammo" or "Best Caliber", I typically just shake my head and do a facepalm.
:iagree:
That is one reason why I gave up reading gun magazines years ago.

Re: Las Vegas Tower Controller suffers a stroke

I have read several articles on this. It happened around 11pm and there was another controller in the tower but he left to take a break. He was gone for a LONG time. It is against FAA rules for the Tower to be manned by a single controller. I wondered why they had ground control and tower on the sa...

Re: TX: 70 yr old Plano vet sentenced to 87 months

Well, my problem is this: why not bust him for the ILLEGAL DRUGS? Why not bust him previously for the violent behavior? To me, the mass news media, in their eternal hatred of firearms and the 2nd Amendment, made this guy an internet cause with their manipulation of the facts of the events. They WAN...

Re: Nominate a 357 target shooter

I have 0 revolvers, but I would like to remedy that condition. I want a target 357 shooter with an amazing trigger. Look for a Colt Python with a 4 or 6 inch barrel. I believe that they have the best factory trigger of any revolver. The first gun I ever bought was a 4 inch barrel Python. I paid $30...

Let's see: Hey, I know I'm offended for being singled out as a 'white guy'. And, and, don't remind me I'm old, that's sexi...

Re: New house + insurance

I'm in the final throes of buying a house and I found it interesting when going through the home-insurance policy that they cover a LOT of stuff - but by default they will only insure $2,000 worth of firearms. I have a healthy little collection so I'm going to have to bump up some extra coverage, b...
