Re: Should I recommend a Hi Point?

own a 9mm hi-point (first gun). Great gun. Shoots decent. Got my 1911 and now it collects dust.

If they cant afford a 1911, recommend a hipoint. american made lifetime warranty, and shoots reliably after the feedramp gets polished.

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

:iagree: Couldn't agree more. In my initial reading of the OP a few days back, it seemed like it was a contest of sorts. To the OP, how you have handled the situation if you had know that you did not have a weapon, other than your words? I did answer that question earlier in these posts :-) I would...

Re: DPS Processing and website updates

i convinced a friend of mine to get his CGL and he got his in his mailbox in about 20 days. Of course, I got the "gloat" call since mine took 60 days.

Re: PA: City to Pay for Violating OC Man's Rights

I still find it suprising that yankees have open carry and Texas doesnt.

Why did the officer (who I assume knows that it is legal to OC) mess with the guy???

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

I tried to submit this a minute ago, but can't find it... Just curious, what would you have done had you not been armed? Would you have acted/reacted any differently, knowing that there were four of them? I have found in my hours on this forum many members mentioning how they have altered their beh...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

Another option: Simply walk away and shop somewhere else. On the way out, let mgmt. know that you don't appreciate your son being subject to that type of behavior. I've done this before. I simply choose not to engage myself in confrontations unless absolutely necessary, especially when armed. All t...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

WOW!!! Enjoy all of the comments and especially appreciates TAM's response. I was a little taken aback by Petecamp's statement: My opinion here, but you seem way too eager to pull your weapon and shoot someone. Consider carefully the terrible consequences of a "bad shoot." That is a far more painful...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

thanks for the posts. I do appreciate the discussion. I have read and reread the information and I am just shocked at what is covered and what isnt. I am surprised that assault is not covered. I passed the test, listened to the instructor. I know that I cant (and shouldnt) pull my gun on a loudmout...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

OP - I'm curious. What would the guy who put his hand on the cart have to do for you to draw your weapon and fire, while you were between him and your son? Going back to this scenario, I was close, so I can say that had that cart ceased to be a barrier or it got more aggressive, I would have pulled...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

FWIW, IMHO, carrying a gun that has a manual safety in condition 0 is irresponsible. Condition Four: Chamber empty, no magazine, hammer down. Condition Three: Chamber empty, full magazine in place, hammer down. Condition Two: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer down. Condition One: A ...

Re: encounter at wallyworld - calling all armchair QB's

Sounds as if you handled it well. More and more people like that around (wannabe bullies). I never tolerated cussing around my family, ever. Something that I have learned....people that dont carry condition 0 (and I'll argue 1) need to leave their gun at home. OK, if you say so. I don't like condit...
