Re: GUN TATTOO

I absolutely love my tattoo, and would love another one if I could decide what on earth to get. I don't even dislike the idea the man in the original story had of a gun tattoo tho the placement may have been a little more thought out. I could see a back piece featuring one of my sigs and a Texas Sta...

Re: Anybody own a Sig P226 in 9mm?

P226 is an awesome pistol. But don't count out it's little brother the P229. Both are great in 9mm, but shine in .40. And the P229 really shines in 357 SIG. The P226 is a full size pistol (like a G17) where the P229 is akin to the G19. As others have said, the P226 isn't a CCW, but you might be abl...

Re: Should I open carry

Thanks for the reply I just wanted some of you guys opinions since my wife suggested I do not open carry because of the dangers Please do not let anyone, not even your wife dissuade you from open carry if that is how YOU are comfortable carrying. It is as personal a choice as boxers or briefs and r...

Re: Military Discount

I am a little embarrassed because, I wasn't required to fight, I wasn't disabled in any way and it was only 3 years of service, and it was more than 40 years ago. Veterans of my time period were stereotyped as having mental issues, and not able to get a job so they all needed help. Even the VFW did...

Re: Should I open carry

Do whatever makes you feel comfortable. I don't think anyone can really give you advice either way. We might be able to help you out with some pros and cons, but even those are often conflicting based on who you ask. Best thing I can say is whichever way you go, find a good holster and practice ofte...

Re: Military Discount

Ok this drives me insane...the fact that ya'll are embarrassed, ashamed, etc to ask if there's a military discount says so much about the failures of us civilians to make it known what heroes ya'll truly are. I don't care if you're an Army Ranger or a telecom specialist or if you served 2 years or 2...

Re: NJ: Student does a school project supporting gun rights and is Suspended

I think the kid lucked out. The only thing worse than psychiatrists are the education mafia. Psychiatrists drive me crazy! What about psychologists? In a few years do I get to drive you crazy too? I dunno. I can't recall ever dealing with any. I think there were a couple in an office building my in...

Re: 2017 Legislative Priorities

Our comments are, insofar as I have noticed them, all about expanding our rights. That's a good thing to think about and to be prepared to address. But what if the anti-gunners have an agenda of their own? Has anyone given any thought to what they might try to roll back and how we might counter tha...

Re: Anybody own a Sig P226 in 9mm?

We've got a Mk25 D in the shop that keeps whispering, "take me home, take me home." :drool: The 226 in 9 is terrific. You won't be disappointed. Why on earth haven't you taken the baby home then? That's just mean. How can you be so heartless when it's begging for a good home? If I start listening t...

Re: For those that get hung up on semantics

Ok for those of us young whippersnappers would someone care to explain "clip"? A "clip" is a metal bar that holds cartridges in preparation to load into a magazine or the firearm itself. The end of the clip is inserted on the edge of the magazine of firearm receiver, and the rounds are "pushed into...

Re: For those that get hung up on semantics

Ok for those of us young whippersnappers would someone care to explain "clip"? Some people have issues with calling a magazine [the metal thing that you load your ammo into] a clip. I think that most of it comes from training that people had in the military where the drill instructor gives the recr...
