Re: Fort Wolters

There was a KD range there, used for National Guard training and for NRA High Power Rifle /CMP Service Rifle matches. I can't remember if it went to 1000 yards, or just 600.

Re: FL: Multiple victims at a stabbing incident...

It was one of those concealable folding knives with a large-capacity blade.

Re: Ohio Republican backs ending sale of military style weapons

It's interesting that this comes as the National Rifle and Pistol Matches - which involve large numbers of service rifles in civilian hands - are still in progress at Camp Perry, Ohio.

Re: Unbelievable In The United States

At the very least, wouldn't throwing buckets of water at a them be considered interfering with an officer, or some such charge?

I'm not familiar enough with Tasers to know if zapping a person when you're wet is a good idea.

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

John George had some nice things to say about the carbine in Shots Fired in Anger . He was a pretty serious rifle shooter before the war, and became a sniper in the Pacific campaign. A veteran of Guadalcanal and of Merrill's Marauders operations in Burma, he's entitled to his opinions on combat weap...

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Greenville, TX

That sign is stored in the museum. They don't display it.

Also, Audie Murphy enlisted in the Army in Greenville.

I really need to go to the Audie Murphy / American Cotton Museum next time I'm out that way.

Re: NH: Pick up truck driver charged with negligent homicide in deaths of 7 motorcyclists

It gets complicated. Short version: Basically, a CDL is required for operating a commercial vehicle >/= 26,001 lbs (GVW, GVWR, GCWR, etc.) in interstate commerce (Federal). Most (all?) states follow that for intrastate commercial vehicles. There are exceptions, rules, interpretations, etc. Operating...

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

The only mystery is that why the pilot let plane fly for hours south, instead of a steep dive and instant death. Why he had the interest of not finding the airplane in the first place. His reputation? Was he protecting someone's eligibility for life insurance? Perhaps so that we would still be talk...

Re: .44 AutoMag on the way

The video reminded me of shooting in the Wednesday Night Pistol Matches when I was a teenager. NRA bullseye, one-handed slow, timed, and rapid fire. Most of us were shooting .22's, a couple of guys used .38 Specials with wadcutters. One man, though, insisted on shooting .357 Magnum loads. Even on an...

Their car is located at the star lie casino on the California Nevada border.
Whiskey Pete's in Primm. There are some other artifacts, as well as a "bullet proof" Cadillac that belonged to Dutch Schultz and Al Capone. It's a nice side trip if you're in Vegas.

Re: Bonnie and Clyde walk into a BAR...*

The book, Go Down Together , gives a lot of detail on the Barrow gang, and includes several versions of the ambush. By the way, here's a list of weapons in the '34 Ford in which Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were killed: Three .30-caliber BARs One 20-gauge Model 11 shotgun (Bonnie's) One 10-gauge W...

Re: High-school rifle teams on the increase

"These aren’t granddad’s squirrel rifles."

I bet my granddad would have shot squirrel with the Winchester 52D or Walther GX1 I used in high school. Put a post insert in the tube front sight, maybe open up the rear aperture a bit ... ;-)
