Re: What would YOU do?

It is hard to say what one would do and what shot he may take until they are in that situation. If one takes a Response to Active Shooter Class (I have been in two by different instructors) you will have to do long distance shooting. One class (KR Training) had us shooting at an 18 X 24 inch steel p...

Re: Churches arm, train congregants in wake of mass shootings

I took the CRASE class (with Stop the Bleed) at KR Training in July. Karl and the other instructors did a very good job with the class. It is well worth a weekend of your time to take the class. Paul Howe (Combat Shooting and Tactics) also offers a CRASE class. It is a bit more advanced, was three d...

Re: Churches arm, train congregants in wake of mass shootings

I am a member of the Emergency Response Team at our church. When i joined, I was cautioned not to use the phrase "Security Team" as we (Emergency Response Team) are not licensed to be a Security Team (could be sued if we used that term). The article states that the people that go through the trainin...

Re: NRA and Red Flag Laws

My concern is what the red flag laws will morf into. Example, as Christians become a smaller part of the population, someone on the left could claim that they are causing problems/have anger problems because they preach what the Bible says. The Left could call for all guns to be confiscated from any...

Re: Remington 870 barrel shortening in Houston

Ed Van Den Burg is another option. He threaded a couple of 870 barrels for choke tubes and did an outstanding job.

Re: Frank Hamer book

TAM, Based on your recommendation, I checked this book out from the public library and read it. It was a very enjoyable read. I skipped to the last chapter first to read up on Hamer's run in with LBJ. It was interesting and not a surprise that LBJ was so dishonest. What do you have next up for a rec...

Re: June 6, 1944

One of my uncles was a navy fighter pilot in VF-14 on the Wasp that was commissioned in 1943. He was an ace but would never talk about his arial combat (nothing like being on the beaches on D Day). There was a book published about his squadron titled "Flying With Iron Angles". The Alvin Library foun...

Re: Smith&Wesson M&P 2.0 3.6 Compact

I keep hearing all these great things about the triggers on the 2.0, etc. Maybe my mistake is I bought mine too soon after they came out (and paid way more than they are going for now). 6 3/4 to 7 pound trigger pulls on them. Magazines would not drop free when empty. Sights are way off on both pisto...

Re: Shotgun Smith Recommendations

Ed Vanden Burg (south side of Houston) put screw in choke tubes on two 870 18 inch barrels for me and did a perfect job. He has also done trigger work on my 1911s and it was superb. Might want to talk to him as well. He has a web site.

Re: Reloading Brass Substitute Safe?

For pistol (straight wall) brass, you will see most IDPA and USPSA shooters using mixed brass (other than maybe a handful that are trying make major power factor in a caliber that was not intended for that in USPSA). Like others said, if you are going to load hot, you should stick with the same bran...

Re: Be careful with your .357 ammo choices....

TAM, You might want to contact Remington about this to see what they have to say. Not to long after the 6.5 Creedmoor came, I bought a rifle and a bunch of Hornady factory ammo to shoot and to get brass for future reloading. Upon examination of the ammo, I found one round with the primer in backward...

I have the R8 cousin of the TRR8 that you have (virtually identical). They are very pleasant to shoot. You will enjoy it.

Re: Should we abolish the Electoral College?

They would very much like to see New York City float off into the Atlantic Ocean and disappear forever....

Re: No place but Venezuela

Russia wants to prop up the existing government as it keeps oil production in Venezuela extremely low. If Venezuela was producing at full capacity, the world would be flooded in oil and oil prices would drop to $30/barrel or less. There are a lot of refineries on the Gulf Coast that are set up to ru...
