Re: OH: Good gal w/ Ruger .380 kills BG brandishing Springer 9MM.

Well, she did great by drawing and getting 2 quick rounds off, but even if she wanted to keep firing, she was stopped by having her gun swatted away before firing rounds 3 to 7 (I'm assuming her Ruger was an LCP in 6 + 1 mode). We all have 20-20 hindsight that if she had stepped a few steps back, sh...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Today on the radio I listened to Trump complaining about Twitter, Facebook, et al, censoring conservative speech.

I can't find a link, but I was glad to hear him criticize Zuckerberg (sp?) and his lefty buddies for stifling conservatives.

Re: Maduro has video warning for US Marines

Takeaway from the video: The Venezuelan Army can fight back with a unit strength ranging from 4 to 8 troops, not even a full dozen. They have plenty of bayonet practice, probably because their country can't afford cartridges for their weapons. An army travels on its stomach. The socialist paradise c...

Re: Who Supports Gun Control?

The Democrats support gun control. They are so sure that their position is correct, they can't imagine that supporting gun control is a non-starter with many Americans. They have learned nothing from Hillary Clinton's stance on this issue. Hopefully Trump will get his 2nd term, based on rational cri...

Paper shotgun shells are ripe for a revival. They smell great.

https://scopeshq.com/paper-shotgun-shells/ The above link is to an article from ScopesHQ. I am unable to find the name of its author. The original article I found about paper shotgun shells is in the "Garden and Gun" magazine, April/May 2019, page 34, authored by Irwin Greenstein, a shotgun expert....

Re: Your 2019 EDC

No changes for me are foreseen for 2019. I blue sky about adding a 1911, or a CZ (one of the all metal 9's), but basically everything I've got works well, so future purchases will not necessarily be made. Of course I like a lot of other handguns, but the 1911 and the CZ would be tops on my list. 1. ...

Re: IN: Homeowner finds body under gun safe

1. Per one of the above comments: the police responded but didn't find the body. IMHO, it's not the police's job to sort through an apparent hoarder's junk pile. The homeowner himself told them it would take a while to look through his junk. 2. The body might have been easy to miss upon initial visu...

Re: HB 2015 - Mandatory body cameras for SWAT

Maybe this law should be named after the unfortunate 2 citizens who lost their lives in Houston on Hardy St., or was it Harding St.? <sarcasm>.

Well, I was at Sweetwater this past Thursday and Friday. The Roundup is held the 2nd weekend of March every year. I would strongly suggest that everyone go next year, since this experience is quite unique. If you have children, they will remember this for years. If you just go as an adult, without c...

Re: HB 3257 - Imitation firearm = firearm for criminal cases

Well, I guess this is a good law to codify that a fake firearm is equivalent to a real firearm. I had always thought that a fake firearm WAS considered a firearm, since LEO's who shoot people with fake guns do so with the assumption that the gun is real. If LEO's or legally armed citizens shoot some...
