Re: Topographical maps

Maps? I don’t need no stinkin’ map. Shoot, out here I can stand on a can of tuna and see Amarillo. I do like Topos and have a few random ones around. +1 for the DeLorme atlas. Not quite as detailed as a dedicated topo but very useful. I used one extensively storm spotting before GPS and google maps.

Re: How to Carry Cell Phone

As my life evolves and what I have to do/carry I am finding it harder to find a good way to carry my cell phone. I have, for years, carried in my left front shirt pocket. Now, as my work has changed, I am in positions that allow my phone to fall out of my pocket and most pockets aren't deep enough ...

Re: How to Carry Cell Phone

I appreciate the replies. I think I may have to try a combination of ideas. For work I'll start buying the cargo pants. Duluth's prices scare me, as I am cheap and hard on pants, but I hear they are worth it. Secondly, I am needing a new case for my phone so I'll probably go back with an Otter Box o...

Re: NC:5 minutes passed before 911 dispached police in fatal break in.

I had an 911 dispatcher in my LTC class once. I asked her, best case scenario, how long it takes for the call to come in, get all the details, and send the first dispatch out. She responded, 2 minutes. After that it is driving time to the scene and getting to the victim. Assuming the officer is a mi...

Re: WTB Flash Can 5/8 x 24

I may have one from ordering the wrong threads. Let me see if I can locate it. Found it! It is the Micro but it's yours if you want it. PM me your address and I'll send it Monday. Had the same problem with Blundergat. Dug into their BBB and found they are stealing. Apparently the BBB went by the add...

Re: SBR or pistol

As far as SBR vs. Pistol, as others have said, six of one - half a dozen of another. There are pros and cons to both. I do not have an SBR but will likely pull the stamp for at least one of my pistols to be able to swap for reasons mentioned. Caliber is another topic. I do not own a 5.56 short barre...

Re: Best compact 1911? Or favorite DA/SA carry

Another Colt Defender fan. I did get rid of the rubber grips and installed Alumagrips.

Re: Looking for a safe recommendation

I will echo about getting the biggest safe as possible. Safes are like tents. I have never seen a two-man tent that will sleep two men comfortably. Safes are sized by their maximum capacity if you are a Tetris champion and don't mind unloading it every time you need a gun in the back. Handguns are a...

I run a goldenrod in the safe and use a household type dehumidifier in the room the safe is in. Rarely gets above 30-35%.
I run a humidifier in the house all day and it rarely gets above 30-35%. Y'all just need to move up here to the high plains. Your humidity issues will be solved.

Re: WWB failures

A few months ago I bought 3 of the 200 round boxes. In one box I had 6 rounds with the bullet set too deep. I contacted Winchester, submitted pictures they requested, and they said they’d send me a shipping label to send the faulty rounds back. I haven’t received the label and haven’t heard from the...

Re: HB 1471 - School Volunteer Security Program

Why just retired veterans and LEOs? The only eligibility is that they are veterans or LEOs. Hmmpphh. While I don't disagree with the idea, I'm not impressed with the execution. If we have to have something like this, open it up to any LTC that the school approves. Ideally, open the campus to all LTC...
