Flashbang and M&P Shield?

I've decided to try the M&P Shield for my next carry gun, so now to decide how to carry it :)

Has anybody here used the Flashbang with the Shield? Experiences?

Re: SB 864 Will most people wait? $$ reduciton in fee?

I don't plan on reducing fees. From what I've read, the bill says 4-6 hours, and I will have 4 hours of instruction plus time for folks to take the test and do paperwork, then shooting time as needed. I am going to move some of the class content to the internet for people to keep learning before or ...

Re: HB-47 Maximum of 4 Hours?

This is directed mainly to Mr. Cotton, but all are welcome to chime in. I know it's still a little early, but is there any indication as to how this is being received yet. I like the idea of a 4 hour course. Thanks!! :txflag: Not really, it's too early. We've had a few contacts in opposition by CHL...

HB-47 Maximum of 4 Hours?

I'm not looking to pick a fight with the board's owner, but I do want to stimulate discussion. I like the idea of having a course minimum with no maximum, but I don't like the idea much of limiting instructor/student contact time to a maximum of 4 hours. Sure, I agree that we need to pursue freedom ...

Re: Call to Action: New Mexico

It's unusual to put out a call-to-action outside a Texas legislative session, but we need to let the New Mexico Governor, Attorney General and Dept. of Public Safety know the unwarranted cancellation of reciprocity with Texas is not setting well with Texans who now have to change their vacation/tra...

Re: Another Concern About the Zimmerman/Martin shooting...

Whenever you see somebody preaching hatred or division, be really suspicious of anything that person says. The situation in the US is eerily similar to that of Bosnia right before all the problems and wars they had in the 90's. There were Croatians, Bosnians (Muslim, but very different) and Yugoslov...

Re: Stand-Your-Ground Question

An important thing to understand about SYG is that it's not a standalone law that can be interpreted on its own. The media puts up snippets of the law and claim it justifies murder, but if you look at other related statutes like the Initial Aggressor Rule or general justifiable homicide, they really...

Re: Stand Your Ground in Danger

It seems pretty clear based on the eyewitness testimony now starting to come out that Martin used far too much force, whether that force was in defense or not. If you deck some creepy guy out who is following you, it's not right to then straddle the person and beat their face in plus hit their head ...

Re: Firearms Confiscated After Home Defense

Sometimes cops take all of the guns. Maybe put them in a safe and request a warrant prior to opening the safe (which they are highly unlikely to get unless there's good cause to believe there's evidence of criminal activity in the safe). Or, keep some of your stuff off site. IANAL, nor did I stay at...
