Maryland: LEO's replace problem FNS40's w/ Glock 17, Gen 5.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I guess I answered my own question. Showed up with my step son and we both had a good time. On the way home he asked how "old people" knew so much about cars LOL. Anyway thanks for the good time, good conversation and the challenge coin Flightmare. Can't wait for next year. Everyone that came I hop...

Re: Academy firearms on sale 11/25/18 - 12/1/18.

My first carry piece was a PT111, 9MM, 10 + 1, made about 2008. I put about 3,500 rounds through it without any problems. Then the striker went bad, probably due to my non-cleaning of the gun since new. When it finally got cleaned, the insides kind of looked like chocolate pudding. My bad. I'm a muc...

Re: Wisconsin Company Gives Guns for Christmas Bonus

Cool.....this gift card averages out to $500 per employee, which can buy any of a number of popular handguns. Or the employees could add their own money if their gun preferences skewed more "uptown." A Georgia company owner also gave handguns to each of his employees some years ago. They all got the...

Re: Parker County Deputy Shot in Foot

IIRC, the Parker County SO Chief stated that "this is a known problem with that model of gun, which I will not disclose."

Well, if that is so, why was the LEO using it as a BUG?

Crazy2medic: make sure to show up in something other than your bathrobe.
Inquiring minds at the breakfast are looking forward to hearing about your work transition from FIXING holes in people to possibly PUTTING holes in people.

Speaking of terms for white people, I am amused when fair-skinned redheaded folks are referred to as "daywalkers".

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

bitterclinger: Please bring your XDM 5.25" 9MM next time. I expect that one is a tack driver with minimal recoil. I'd also like to try out your Glock 43.

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

Using chopsticks seems to take a lot of practice, which I have no interest in doing. Whenever I have eaten Chinese food with Americans who know how to use chopsticks, I feel like they flaunt their skills at it in a superior fashion. I'm glad their flaunting of their superiority over us staunch spoon...

Re: 74+ year old in-laws wanting to get their LTC and new guns

Although I have never shot a Smith 642, I do have an LCR .38. It does have bit of recoil with .38 +P, and although the trigger seems OK, the short sight radius with the .1875" barrel makes accuracy a challenge. It seems the 642's double action trigger would not be kind to older folks' hands, so I'm ...
