Re: My Harvey experience

Yes, God is good.
Keeping everyone afflicted in my prayers as you reclaim your home and recover from the storm.
Be grateful, you are stronger now.

Re: How to get rid of old ammo

Please forgive my pragmatism.

I've never seen a box of ammunition with an expiration date.
Also, some of my hunting ammo was loaded in 1980. Never had a problem.
Happy Trails!

Re: Mental Tips for Stiff Trigger?

Then filled the cylinder with snap caps to protect the firing pin. I just pick a target across the ro...

I have a friend in north Ft Worth that had two strangers knock on the door this morning at 6am. They were holding a phone and said they were at the wrong house when my friend demanded to know what they wanted. The strangers were covered in dark hoodies. I get the impression that opportunistic burgla...

Re: .45 HP necessary YorN

I agree with Jusme. I've carried a 1911 for years and always use HP (and train with my carry ammo as well). In short, if I have to use my weapon, I want the bullet to expend its energy in the target. I am not a LEO and my training practice involves people: not cars, not shooting through cover, and n...
