Re: TX: An unloaded gun went off and killed a Houston 15 year old.

Unloaded guns cannot fire, plain and simple, so the gun was definitely NOT unloaded. ALWAYS keep your muzzle pointed in a safe direction. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. ALWAYS keep firearms open and empty until ready to use them. ALL three rules broken, with predictabl...

Re: NC:5 minutes passed before 911 dispached police in fatal break in.

I'd wager that most of us here understand the value, or at the very least have an inkling of the value, of a sidearm (at your side). Every decision we make involves risk (odds and stakes) and time. When the stakes are the life/health of you and your loved ones -- in other words as high as they can g...

Re: California to Texas migration

Those who have immigrated from California that I associate with are Conservative/Libertarian with beliefs similar in most ways to my own. I have met a few, whose core beliefs I cannot attest to, that are amazed and/or dismayed by the relative firearms liberties / lesser "gun control" we have here. O...

Re: Possible New Suppressor Bill HB 2286

I am with TAM on this. The Federal Government, with the ATF enforcing Federal laws, is what matters most regarding suppressors or other firearms/accessories mentioned in these Federal laws. I further agree that anyone who believes that the whole gamut of firearms/firearms accessories laws is Federal...

Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

I dont know if I ever muster the courage to carry chambered tbh. Right now I carry off body because of work attire constraints (tucked in business casual). Definitely need a lot of practice. If a gun is in its holster, there is so little chance of a discharge that it should pose no concern at all. ...

Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

OP, welcome to Polite Society. As others have said, there are many common themes regarding concealed carry. Carrying a defensive tool is meant to be comforting to the carrier, not necessarily comfortable. Your level of comfort is dependent on several factors, including a good (gun)belt, a holster th...

Re: NRA CCW Instructor class

I haven't seen the course objectives, modules or course of fire, but I suspect that it is an abbreviated. watered-down version of the Personal Protection Outside the Home class, perhaps with a bit more time spent on carry methods, holster option and the like. It also is likely a stand-alone class or...

Re: UK: the police state

Note, though, that the Bill of Rights enumerates natural, God-given human Rights. That British Subjects live, and remain living, under a government that does not recognize these Rights as legal is a shame they have to bear.

Re: Irresponsible dog owner

Sorry to hear that you are going through all this hassle because someone else failed their responsibility test. If you were in a more rural setting, I'd suggest the three S solution -- Shoot, Shovel, Shut up. As it is, that may not be a good answer. When it is a good answer, a suppressor would help ...

In a revolver, the case of each round is therefore held at the mouth, and the recoil impulse working against the momentum of the projectiles in the non-firing chambers is what ...

Clearly there are some who would call to ban hammers, at least as soon as one of their rank coin the term "hammer violence" so that they can call it an epidemic and line up an appropriate group of "hammer-sense" folks rally around "common sense" restrictions. Tools calling for regulations of tools i...

Re: Deplorable, bitter clinger, now unreasonable zealot

If it is reasonable to allow Government to take away natural Rights, Mr. Moody should rejoice when his Right to speak freely is taken away. Of course, nobody would hear him in that case.
