Then you must be in the mountains at an elevation of 6,100 ft.
Closer to 5,000 ;-)

Re: Drones

And registration is only required if the drone is over 250 grams. The Mavic mini comes in a 249 grams. But don't you still have to comply with the airspace and altitude rules? And how do you know those if you're flying an unlicensed drone. As a pilot, I'm concerned about ignorant drone flyers causi...

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

I've had a few sets of plates. So far my favorites are these: https://www.shellbacktactical.com/shellback-tactical-prevail-series-10-x-12-stand-alone-level-iv-hard-armor-plate-model-4sicmh/ They aren't cheap, but after having Safariland, Bulletproofme, Army issue (I'm a contractor, not military) and...

Re: Beretta 92x Compact or Centurion

I've always been a Centurion fan, in fact I carried a 96D Centurion for a long time before selling it on this very forum.

I wouldn't mind a 92X Centurion now.

12 gauge?
Oops, yeah, forgot that part
Price?
No idea, that's what I was wondering about. I wasn't sure if it's something worth selling or not.

Re: Federal Air Marshal Qualification: Test Your CCW Skills

An instructor in a class I was in made us shoot it. We were all relatively competent.

None of us passed :oops:

I think I'd do better now, but it's certainly not easy.

Ruger Precision Rimfire .22LR - DFW

I intended to use this as a trainer for my Ruger Precision Rifle, but after hitting 1,000yds with the latter I got bored and traded it in so I no longer need this (me and my awesome plans :roll:). The previous owner put about 300rds through it, and I've put around 50-100rds through it. The stock mag...

Older Winchester Super X/Super Speed ammo

Is this stuff desirable at all? I've seen some ads selling it as "vintage". I ask because I have three ammo cans full of it and really don't need it. Unfortunately, when I put it in the cans I tossed all the boxes without knowing they might be worth something :???: It's all high brass stuff in good ...

Re: Drones

They'll be useful in the coming years if you take the time to learn about them :cool: Actually... I’m very interested in learning. My next planned large purchase isn’t another gun—of which I have plenty—it’s a a drone. I’m thinking in terms of the latest Mavik Mini, which is supposed to have longer...
