Re: Mental Tips for Stiff Trigger?

FWIW... I have an old, S&W Model 10 revolver. The DA is very stiff. I practice trigger control at home which helps me with all of my pistols. I took a small laser pointer and taped it to the barrel. 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...

Re: Ice bullets: Fiction or developed by CIA for "wet work"?

I heard about frozen blood bullets from a Charlie Chan movie: Black Magic aka Meeting at Midnight (1944).

Very entertaining, but it's fiction.

Re: Tough one - loose dog - their property

I had a similar situation last week and I would like to add something as yet unsaid. I live in a subdivision that's adjacent to the Trinity River in Fort Worth. I have seen coyotes, bobcats, and turkeys foraging in the neighborhood using the golf course as an access. While walking my dog I was confr...
