Re: Glock G19: Gen 4 or Gen 5?

Looking at adding a Glock G19 to my handgun collection, mainly due to it's widespread use. Curious if anyone has experience with both Gen 4 and Gen 5 to recommend one over the other. Some opinions after shooting them side by side. The two stage recoil spring in the Gen 5 makes a noticeable differen...

Re: Research Help Needed!

I was told of a case where a person was charged for carrying past a gun-buster sign and was convicted, I believe for violating 30.06, since the intent of the sign was clear. Did you ever find your case? I don't know why I looked, but I think Tafel got his guns back. The question before the Supreme ...

Re: Store Clerk Loses Job After Scaring Away Robber

This is how screwed up our country is now. The 711 Corporation does the same thing. I bet the owners of that convenience store are big dems who voted for Hillary. This policy is designed to stop criminals, criminal family, and criminal estates from seeking damages against a company where an employe...

Re: Irresponsible dog owner

I think reasonable people agree that dogs could cause serious bodily injury or death. I would be very sad if I had to use deadly force to stop a dog from being a dog. If a dog just need a little education to leave me alone, I'd much prefer to season it with spicy knowledge sauce and let it ponder it...

Re: Carrying on someones private property

Even if you do not know the individual from something other than an email exchange? I agree that it was wreckless, just trying to see if there is another solution besides signage and/or an oral warning. IMHO, You should just assume everyone is armed at an exchange springing from email. We already k...

Re: Poll: Do you Open Carry?

There have been a few questions about open carry lately on the forum. We all have our own opinions, and they differ. For the new LTC's among us trying to make a decision, I thought it would be good to let them know what the members here do. Missing my vote, so i'll just add it down here. - I'm glad...

How to Complain about 30.06 Sign in Writing

My auto shop posted 30.06 signs some time in the past year. If I didn't care, that would be the end of it. But I care. So, I'm looking for a polite letter to mark up and make my own. Needs to be short, list some credentials of CHL holders, and argue that the sign should be removed. Someone got one? ...

Re: Gun control debate history

The article is reads as a synopsis of a book published a few years ago called The Second Amendment: A Biography by Michael Waldman. Follows the same outline and stresses the same events. Funny. Looks to me like the outline and language was lifted from an October 2017 podcast by More Perfect called ...
