Re: Pit Bull Attack...divine intervention

To help track downed wild game I let my tracking dog drink a little blood, its not mean. Maybe human blood is different? We used to feed our cow dogs, the heart when we had a cow butchered. They certainly seemed to enjoy it, but never saw them go to the source for one. We're drifting now but it's c...

My resolve is that I will never be out unarmed again.
With your health intact, and your dog on the mend, that's the most important takeaway! :thumbs2:

Re: Pit Bull Attack...divine intervention

You and I see that very differently. What if the pit had instead attacked you or turned on you when you tried to defend your dog? The Divine Intervention may well have been the Lord reminding you to never leave the gun home when you are out on your walks. ;-) That dog needs to be put down. I doubt ...

Re: 5rds 38Spl+P vs 8rds 32acp

I'd take the 5 rounds of 38 spl+p in that scenario. In fact I carried just that for many years. As Noted, any number of compact 9mm's would accomplish the job with added capacity and a legitimate chance to reload. I often carry a PF9 with a spare- that's 15 rounds of 9mm in a smaller package than my...

The irony is rich, however...

I'll stop at this:

it's a great lesson and reminder to the young or unprepared to have life insurance or a well funded alternative to care for your family in case of an early demise. Once you marry you are obligated to provide for wife and eventual family.

Re: Had a Squib

lesson learned; from that moment on I've eyeballed the powder-charge in every case before putting a bullet on top instead of blindly trusting the powder-measure. :iagree: One thing I like about the 550- as I reach to index, my eye is drawn to the case in station 2 showing the powder before I advanc...

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

I'm guessing that his resignation is a defense strategy. Maybe his employment would require certain conditions or cooperation that you wouldn't want, as a defendant? It also makes me sick that even FOX was reporting this as "another white officer shooting a black person" in the tease of the story. :...

Re: Best Buy giving oral notice

The argument that gun owners need to suck up and be quiet though has gotten us exactly where we are now. That's exactly right! We can carry in the vast majority of places... as opposed to outdoor public spaces only. Want to see some real backlash? Start acting like the OCT types again in today's cl...

Re: Woman killed by FT Worth PD officer

Problem i have is that if i see people with flashlights in my fenced back yard by my bedroom window, I'd have a gun handy as well. But the pic of the guns show a gun on the floor as it that was justification.... maybe it was after she was shot and dropped it?

Re: .45 ACP bullets for range and self defense

Do you folks have to trim your cases very often and after how many reloads? Back when I first started reloading years ago, I was always intimidated by possible feeding issues from cases not trimmed properly. Now I read several people talking of how easy the 45 is to reload. No, never ever... 45acp ...

Re: .45 ACP bullets for range and self defense

Is there any difference between using a 230gr RN plated vs fmj? There are some differences.... The base of a FMJ is exposed lead and the jacket is much thicker & tougher... load data is also a bit different. FMJ is generally a little more consistent & accurate if you (and your gun) are capable of t...

Re: .45 ACP bullets for range and self defense

Bullseye is a versatile, fast powder suitable for a wide range of loads... the only downside is that it can be pretty dirty in light target loads. But that's not an issue if you clean and care for your gun on occasion! :lol: There is load data for 185-230gr bullets, readily available. I've run it as...

Re: .45 ACP bullets for range and self defense

Purchased my first 1911 pistol in .45ACP this week. Congratulations!!! :cheers2: You can use 185, 200 or 230 gr for range... price isn't always cheaper for lighter weight, due to popularity of certain projectiles. A few of my favorites are 200gr. RNF or SWC (coated lead) by precision bullets, 185 R...
