Re: Colt Delta Elite 10mm

The 1911 wasn't designed to handle the 10mm. This resulted in two things. 1) old 10mm pistol frames wore out in 4-6k rounds. They solved this with 2) ammo makers voluntarily downloaded 10mm. My .357 Sig loads have more energy than factory 10mm. If you handload, 10mm is a beast. However, that pistol...

Re: Colt Delta Elite 10mm

I have 3 10mm handguns. A Glock 20 (Meh), A Kimber Custom II (:mad5), and a Delta Elite very similar to that one. The newer models have the beavertail grip safety, but function quite well. Overall I love the cartridge, but you need to specifically look for full power loads or load your own. I hope K...

Re: Anti drone equipment

A drone is an aircraft regulated under part 107 of the FAA rules, not part 91.

Re: Sheriffs Deputy Kills suspect.

Last I heard he was out of surgery and recovering. Since this is a small town I have known the deputy's name since shortly after hearing about the incident, but I do not know if it has been publicly released yet. While I know some details they are second or third hand at best. From what I have heard...

Monday morning a suspicious vehicle was reported at an office next to a residence between Seminole and the state line. A currently unidentified Gaines County deputy responded to the scene. He encountered a single male suspect and asked the man for ID. The suspect then scuffled with the deputy and st...

Re: Anti drone equipment

First off it's a federal law that makes damaging or destroying an aircraft a felony, and FAA Rules/regulations that makes drones (Unmanned Aircraft) qualify as aircraft. For those who think all aircraft have to remain above 500 feet at all times I suggest you rethink that position, especially where ...

Re: Anti drone equipment

The FAA regulates drones as aircraft and you should know that even threatening to intentionally damage or destroy an aircraft is a federal felony. Actually doing so is also a federal felony. The feds have yet to prosecute someone for doing so yet, however there is word that the FAA is working with ...

Re: TX: Let the homeless pick thru dumpsters

From what I read the victim wasn't armed and even if he did charge him or even a regular police officer they have no right to use deadly force. Imagine having to look for food ect. Out of a dumpster "life apparently is pretty bad already" then you get shot/killed. Can't wait to see what how many ye...

Re: Did I Miss Something - Renewal

Yesterday I overheard a conversation and part of that conversation related to renewal of your LTC. What I heard was that on every third renewal you must go to that fingerprint place that DPS uses and be fingerprinted after which the prints are electronically sent to the DPS and some type of backgro...

Re: Trump: Banning Suppressors?

While I do not agree with the Trump administration I do see what I believe is their logic: The truth of the matter is that Silencers, like machine guns, are relatively unusual in regards to the general public due to the NFA. Since they are unusual they do not qualify for protection under Heller as i...

Re: Trump: Banning Suppressors?

Bump stocks being banned is more than a 2A right. It is government confiscation without reimbursement of legally owned property. Same thing if they confiscate land that you own to build a shopping center. The issue of the government stealing your private property that previously was legal to own is...
