FL: Multiple victims at a stabbing incident...

"https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/tallah ... index.html"

I guess we need to ban high capacity military grade assault knives?

Best of the West Closed

I'm so sad to see this. This was easily my favorite range.

Re: BCM vs DD

Very interesting.

I'll admit that the BCM RECCE-14 MCMR in particular looks like a very fun gun to shoot. hmmmm

BCM vs DD

Hey guys,

So I'm interested in getting a "nice" AR15. I've had my eye on Daniel Defense and BCM as candidates in that category and I'm doing my research. Do any of y'all have much to say about either that might tip the scales one way or the other?

Thanks!

Re: Best of the West Rifle?

That stinks. I've had my eye on a new rifle and BotW was my go-to place to sight things in and get to know my new toys.. err...equipment.

Best of the West Rifle?

Hey

So Best of the West in Liberty Hill's website says its rifle range is closed. Anybody know why?

It's not really my business, but I'm nosy.

Re: Dayton, OH Active Shooter

So Trump has apparently been "talking to the AG" and is planning to make an additional statement tomorrow morning, 10am Eastern in the media is to be believed. I'd like to think Trump will support 2A rights, but I must admit that I'm not at all certain. Ugh.

Re: How often do you re-lube?

So not to derail my own question but I tend to use the Hoppes Lubricating Oil. It was what I started with and have never changed from it. Is there a much better oil that I should look at, or is the Hoppes ok? I hear a lot about gun grease too, but never tried it.

How often do you re-lube?

Hey guys, Recently got back into TX after a long long (too long) bit of traveling around for work and thus back to the range. Quick question as I still feel pretty new to all this... Let's say you go to the range, clean and oil the pistol, and put it in the safe. Now a month later you want to go sho...

Eye Pro over Prescription glasses?

Hi guys, Somehow when I wasn't looking I apparently got old enough to need glasses. Good news is that actually seeing the targets will probably help my accuracy. Bad news is that no way will my shooting glasses fit with my new Rx glasses. So, I'm looking for recommendations. What do other folks with...

Re: NRA vs CNN Tonight 9PM

Been watching all this tonight and my impression is that Dana and Marco did the best they could in a deliberately and overwhelmingly hostile audience. I was shocked and unhappy to hear Macro say he's open to magazine restrictions. That's not going to help. This to me just reeks of a slick, well done...

Just checking... Current renewal process

Hey just checking my understanding here. I need to renew this year. My understanding is that renewals now are just online. No required class or test. Is that correct?

Thanks!

Re: Sig 226 debate...

I went ahead and got the mk25 as the guy gave me a really nice deal on it. Wouldn't be surprised if a Legion followed me home later on this year though. Sig 226 is a sweet gun no matter what "flavor".
