Re: Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Active Shooter

Per press conference on fox, sheriff estimated shots were 500 yards. Doesn’t look like external modification to full auto. Either internal modification or manufactured full auto. Timed several videos of M16s going thru a 30 round mag and compared to video of shooting. Appears to be 4 times the durat...

Re: Property straddles state line

Make sure you're standing on the right side when you shoot. Seriously though, if it were me I'd take a defensive position in the house and call police for someone trespassing in the backyard. If they cross the line and try to enter the house all bets are off. The real question is which police depar...

A guy at the FW gun show was selling what looked like pretty complete D size kits he labeled as "oil traps" for $140.

Re: Accurate statistics

A bit dated, but still illustrates the point: ​According to the CDC, there are roughly 32,000 deaths a year in the US and declining from "Gun Violence." Let's break those numbers down: 60% are suicides. That's 19,200 3% are accidental. That's 960 4% are justified. That's 1,280 33% are homicides. Th...

Re: Gander Mountain Bankruptcy

The last time I entered one of their stores was during the great ammo shortage. I stood at the counter and watched the manager pull boxes of ammo out of a Walmart bag and mark them up 300%. IMHO, that mindset has put them in the financial ruin they currently find themselves.

Re: One lucky guy

Had fun at the show. Ended up behind a couple who had two extra tickets and gave them to us. How cool is that? Did some field research on 300 blackout uppers and AR10s (man those things are heavy). Also looked at 300 blackout ammo options. Pretty much decided on a 300 BO upper as my next purchase bu...

Re: Can I renew license that expired 5 years ago

You have 1 year from your expiration to renew. If it's been more than 1 year you must start over as a new applicant. Do you know where that is stated? As noted above, § 411.185 License Renewal Procedure states "To renew a license, a license holder must, on or before the date the license expires ......

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

If you had a dry ice (CO2) slug in a shotgun wadding/cup, it would probably work at short range and be moving really, really fast. No rifling marks even if they did find the wadding. Cartridges kept in a super insulated container with other dry ice blocks, then inserted at the last moment into a br...
