Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

I'm with TAM, the whining is jr high and taken way out of context. It's like people are offended because they think dropping an empty slide should be OK just because they didn't know it was not. The video comments began in reference to the 2.5lb trigger job on a supergrade (not a combat gun) and how...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

As Hackathorn pointed out, the Glock is a different type of mechanism and nowhere near as precise as that on a custom 1911. But as was pointed out just after that by Bill wilson- the barrel lug really takes a beating... that's not precise nor 1911 specific. In fact he specifically mentioned that in...

So Wilson took his expensive custom 1911's to the NRA show and then got upset when they were handled?
No, they were upset when the guns were being mishandled, big difference. As he pointed out, it's bad for any guns, glock included.

Re: Another opinion please

For those of us that shoot steel, or have a home range, these would be a cool thing to have for occasional use... and the price seems fair. :tiphat: I think you are ok with putting a link to your business in the sig line, provided it adheres to the rule copied below: 18.

Re: Problem With 1911 Grip Screws

I have no ideal when I bought these O’ rings, but I am glad I kept them. I had the same thought when I read your post... my bag of o-rings is in the bottom of my cleaning supply box... I assumed I would go through them with some regularity but if you don't over tighten them, they rarely split.

Re: Problem With 1911 Grip Screws

Any of the hard materials- like G-10 or aluminum, etc. require o-rings. Most wood has a certain amount of springiness, which is why they usually hold. (except a few ofthe hardwoods without beveled holes) Amazingly you can just put 2-3 lbs of pressure and an o-ring holds fine but 10-15 lbs of pressur...

Re: Goldilocks Gun Recommendations

You mention you like the ability to conceal for the Shield, but prefer .45 ACP to 9mm. Are you aware that there is a M&P Shield in .45 ACP? And just to further that- the .45 Shield is a great shooting gun... shoots much softer then you would expect. (recoils like a larger/heavier gun) Since you ask...

That should be a case where the State reimburses all your expenses and wipes the record and gives you a big fat apology!

With no recourse, the system will never keep from ruining those wrongly accused or arrested.

Re: Home invasion gun fight captured on dramatic surveillance video

BG 1 went immediately to the hallway leading to bedrooms, no hesitation... gotta wonder what their intent was?!?!? This is a good one to rethink your nightstand gun or quick access safe set up. Would YOU have had a gun in hand that quickly after being awoken in the night? I have been a little lazy l...

Re: Newest H-E-B opened down the road, traffic is horrible...

Give it about 2-3 weeks... when our HEB opened it clogged the area for solid 2 weeks. (and it was 3 weeks before I even got in!) Once the people get used to it, traffic improves.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

You're right but that's really not much better... the process should be about finding/presenting the truth- guilty or not. And let a jury/judge/panel decide, based on the actual evidence, not just the selectively presented evidence.

Prosecutors withheld from the defense evidence that could have exonerated him.
This kind of behavior should be punished. At a minimum, should be a serious ethics violation.
