A man died in a car leaving the scene, so his buddies just dumped his body in the middle of road and continued on.
Practical matters, bro. They drop a big load and loose the tide when they expire. Gotta keep the ride fresh. :cool:

Re: The Much-Maligned, Under-powered 30 U.S. Carbine

Having owned (and worked on) an Iver Johnson .30 carbine: It is a decent carbine, ballisticly very similar to the .357. It is VERY magazine-sensitive, and it can be challenging to have a stock of serviceable mags. If the mags run, generally ammo doesn't make much difference, IF the gas system isn't ...

Re: How to Carry Cell Phone

As my life evolves and what I have to do/carry I am finding it harder to find a good way to carry my cell phone. I have, for years, carried in my left front shirt pocket. Now, as my work has changed, I am in positions that allow my phone to fall out of my pocket and most pockets aren't deep enough ...

Re: Fierce Defender IWB Sidecar Holster

It's hard to say with the pre-curved/pre-angled combo holsters. For really about the same $, you could get the RCS Morrigan and a Phlster mag pouch. OTOH, if you have a heat gun, you can make adjustments to the Sidecar, to a slight degree, if you needed to. Or, it may fit you like a glove... :tiphat:

Mark Hartshorne. Good to deal with, and excellent work. It will take awhile, but it is well worth the wait. I had a SP101 bored for 9mm, using moon clips.

Re: Breaking: Marijuana accidentally made legal in Texas

I LOL'd at this bit.... Stout said it can cost between $500,000 and $600,000 for a lab to purchase the equipment needed to test concentration levels. He said it then takes between nine and 12 months of validation and accreditation before a lab is certified to test for THC concentration levels. Back...

Re: Breaking: Marijuana accidentally made legal in Texas

There isn't much discussion about this, because of the politics, but it is well known, and increasingly a matter of concern for DOC Mental Health, and family counselors. Pot ain't all mellow & sweet:

Re: GA: Athens Body camera video released

Would be interesting to know where the suspect was hit by the first officer's shots and how many hits there were. Based on the gut-clutch, upper abdomen. When the target is moving forwards, the tendency is to pull shots low. 8 shots fired. I hope/assume the officer was aware of the box he was in as...

Re: GA: Athens Body camera video released

The man was obviously so disturbed that he preferred death by cop rather than seeking help. The officers' showed great restraint until they were required to stop the threat with deadly force. I'm glad the officers weren't injured in this deadly confrontation. I can understand it in this political c...

Re: After chaotic handling of Parkland, airport mass shootings, BSO loses its accreditation

If losing the accreditation won't effect the office all that much, what's the point? This is so typical. If a panel of my peers unanimously voted to revoke the accreditation for my work, that would severely impact my business. Not when it comes to government. if a govt panel votes, and says another...

Re: Vacationing in gun restricted Dominican Republic

Two million Americans visit each year. Is this a statistical deviation or a real thing? Why though does it take the FBI a month to do toxicology? This shouldn’t take more than 48 hours. Politics and money. The DR borders Haiti, and, as I indicated, the progressive movement is strong and aggressive ...
