Re: Bottom Handguns!

I do not understand why Hi-Point makes these lists. Some you list will blow up in your hand, the Hi-Point is just ugly as sin. In my experience I would much rather have a Hi-Point than any semi auto Taurus makes. Ugly pistols are better than single shot pistols. A lot of people wave off these kind ...

Re: D.C.: Al Franken resigns - he made me laugh for the first time.

I don't think that plays well for the dems. My guess, he stays either way. If a Dem wins, there's no election focus and he can simply decide he's not running for reelection, if GOP wins, they claim moral high ground. Gambit here is Moore wins and then resigns to a GOP appointee. In the end, politici...

Re: In Houston: can someone convert a portion of their garage as a PRIVATE indoor shooting lane?

There was an old story I saw some time back about a big warehouse near Downtown Houston. The owner was into bench rest shooting and he had several hundred yards of indoor space to shoot with no wind. I think even at night, they had to be careful as cops might come by about the noise. I think it was...

Re: In Houston: can someone convert a portion of their garage as a PRIVATE indoor shooting lane?

I can personally think of several reasons why you should NOT even consider this, even if it was legal.

I'll leave the reasons as an exercise to the readers, but...boy, I set the "thinking bar" really low and came up with about five reasons in as many seconds.

Re: BEWARE of Scams From Armslist

The saddest part of all this: These scammers are often successful. A non-trivial percentage of the population still falls for this. So long as it works, the scammers will keep trying.

Powders for Sale: IMR 7977, H1000, Unique, XBR 8208, Accurate 1680

Ok folks, I'm bailing out of most of my reloading stuff. Just not enough time for this "hobby" (Also, the wife says that if I want a new band saw, I need to sell stuff to fund it :grumble ) (No, I won't trade this for a band saw unless you want to get rid of a Laguna 14BX :lol: ) The powders listed ...

That bill is DOA and any GOP member that supports it has guaranteed somebody else will take their seat next election.

Re: LTC friendly movie theater

My local Cinemark is 30.07. That's perfectly fine by me (I know some people take offense at 30.07 signs, I don't. On the other hand, if I see a valid 30.06 sign, that business will NEVER get my money)

Re: Army chooses Sig

What makes the Sig 320 great? Or, are they just so-so? With the exception of the high bore axis, I like everything about them. Unfortunately, high bore axis isn't something you can fix with aftermarket parts. On the other hand, I found the difference in muzzle flip to be minor compared to a Glock. ...

Re: Outragous - Dicks Sporting Goods

Dick's has ALWAYS been relatively gun-unfriendly, treating their firearms area as an obligation, rather than a business anchor. They went into full retreat after Sandy Hook. Haven't set foot in one since. Don't intend to change that policy.

Re: Army chooses Sig

I think the 320 was a solid choice. This is coming from a guy that carries/shoots Glocks, but I've shot the 320 competitively a few times. I personally don't like it because the higher bore axis is uncomfortable to me (but I feel the same way about all SIGs). Reasons why the SIG 320 was a better cho...

Anything specific? It's a Shield, so I didn't think more pics were needed :lol:

I wanted to make sure you could see the holster though. I'm glad to accommodate additional requests if you tell me what you're looking for.
