Re: Bulletproof backpacks: Stop 9MM & .45, but not .223/other rifle rounds.

Bulletproof backpacks? What about bulletproof frontpacks and headpacks? When I, and later my sons, went to school, we carried our books in our arms. Oh, I forgot, we didn't go around shooting each other back then. The solution to these senseless tragedies is not more protective gear. What is it,......

Covering all of the buzzwords in a single article in the hope that somebody will give him some money and attention.

Re: Holster making part uno...

That's a great attitude, and pretty much the way I approached my first holster.

Enjoy!

Re: 9mm Pro Carry II

Sometimes my wife would rather give me a hard time than have something she likes too! After some reading, measuring, and mathing, I bumped the FMJ rounds up to 5.2 grains of Unique and lengthened the OAL to 1.148". I ran 50 of those through with no failures of any sort - any grip tight enough to squ...

9mm Pro Carry II

Dear Sweet Wife and I ran some ammo through her new Kimber. All handloads using Montana Gold 124 grain FMJ and Speer 124 grain Gold Dots. 250 rounds total, although some went through my well-used FN Hi Power as an ammo checker. 4.5 grains of Win 231 with the FMJ, OAL 1.161" - some failure to return ...

Re: Soft locking rifle case?

Nice! It also counts as actual security instead of a soft case that is technically locked, but not secure.

Re: Straus not running for a new term.

The best way to get people to participate in their communities is to reduce the size and footprint of the government. Once something becomes the "government's" responsibility the "people" back away from it.
Why do I not believe Straus' PAC will be promoting a reduction in government?

Re: WTB SS 9mm Commander

She likes the weight because it tames the recoil. She is willing to try some other guns out, it's fitting in a trip to a rental range that has what she wants to try that is tricky. We're about 2 hours northwest of Austin.

Re: WTB SS 9mm Commander

She has a Star BM now. While it has been reliable, and she doesn't shoot enough to wear it out, I would like her to have a higher-quality pistol at hand. I have a Hi Power I thought I might have hard chromed for her, but she doesn't like the width of the double-stack mag. My Combat Commander fits ok...
