Re: .38 Special S&W 640

Another option for those that are recoil sensitive and can't rack a slide is the S&W 351 C. It is a 22 magnum air weight revolver with 7 shot capacity. There is now some pretty good self defense ammo out for the 22 magnum and 7 shots should be enough to at least get the bag guy (or gal) to take off.

Re: Don't need to show LTC to LEO when carrying.

I guess I don't understand why one would not want to show their license to a LEO. They will know you have it and may take it as being unfriendly on your part. I always hand mine to the LEO when I have been stopped (2 times in 10 years) and do all of the other things advised when I took the class wit...

Re: Do Not make a company aware of their non-compliant signs!

I agree 100% with not notifying a company that you visit that their signs are non-compliant. What do you do when it is your employer? Before open carry passed, my office (downtown Houston) had no signs. I would carry concealed due to the motley crowd that was on the streets (had to walk four blocks ...

Re: Victor D Hanson; Explains Perfectly how Trump pulled off the biggest Upset in Presidential History

Abraham,

Your welcome. I understand on not wanting it to end. I have watched more than a few of his videos since seeing the first on WW II (this one was number 2 or 3 of the ones I have watched). We need more folks like him.

Victor D Hanson; Explains Perfectly how Trump pulled off the biggest Upset in Presidential History

Folks,

This is well worth your time to hear this guy talk. His talk is about 26 minutes then he does a Q&A for about 18 minutes. Very interesting.

Re: Mag capacity + 1 or just what it holds

ARs and some older handguns used to have jamming issues if the mags were loaded to full capacity. That is the reason for downloading by a round or 2. Having said that I have not heard of a gun jamming because of a fully loaded mag in probably 20 years. The reason for the download by 2 on the AR is ...

Re: Mag capacity + 1 or just what it holds

Advice I received from a retired HPD SWAT officer/Team Leader that teaches at our club is: whatever you do on loading, do it exactly the same every time you load with no exceptions. He said that, if you are involved in a shooting, they will ask you how many rounds you loaded in your pistol (or rifle...

Re: 2 Gun

We don't have 2 gun but we do have carbine matches at PSC on the 1st Saturday of the month. Non members are welcome. They are a lot of fun and challenging. We shoot from 50 yards to 300 yards. Lots of reactive targets (dueling tree, plate racks, Texas star, poppers, etc.). Paper targets as well. Ju...

Re: M&P 2.0 pistols (particularly the compact)

Sorry to hear about your issues with your full size 1.0 M&P. I elected to have Dan Burwell do trigger jobs on mine instead of going to APEX. I have 65 K + rounds through my 9 pro that I use in competition and have had no issues with that and only one issue on my older M&P 45s (broken striker on a co...

Re: M&P 2.0 pistols (particularly the compact)

I talked to S&W about doing just that. They told me that, if I sanded on the back straps even a small amount, the warranty would be void. They really box us in. Will see what comes back from the third trip. Does this voiding of the warranty include trigger modifications, sight replacement, or appli...

Re: M&P 2.0 pistols (particularly the compact)

Jeffbird, I would like to know that as well but they won't send replacements. The ones I have now are so aggressive that I can't wear the pistols inside the waist band as the sides of the back strap are so aggressive. They are also hard on the shirts that I wear for cover garments. It is their nick...

Re: Ham Radio Information Seminar

Anyway locals (PSC members) without kids can attend? If not, any chance of a class for older kids :-) . This sounds like something that would be worthwhile but I know nothing about the subject and would be interested in getting some base knowledge.

Folks, I appreciate the replies. All of my 1.0 M&Ps are great once the triggers were tuned up and the sights were replaced. I have made expert is SSP and ESP in IDPA shooting those pistols. My mistake was buying them shortly after they came out. I have heard that there were problems with the early t...

Re: 2 Gun

I forgot to mention that there are 3 gun matches held on the second Saturday at Impact Zone. Look at the WHIDPA web site for more information on that. I think there may be something at Thunder on the north side but can't confirm and don't know anyone involved with that.
