I am renewing and they want a copy of my DD214 again which I will submit. But can anyone explain to me the disconnect since I submitted it originally, and my LTC says veteran on it.
I'ts probably unnecessary, but I would send a copy anyway.

Re: Reasons to get a 1911 and which one?

Just curious, does the firing pin block really make that much of a difference? I mostly shoot, DA/SA Handguns and they all have firing pin blocks. Definitely not 1911 quality triggers. I know a lot of shooters don't like 80 series, but I am wondering just how much of a difference it really makes.

I never liked Glocks, but I have 1/2 dozen of all other polymer guns.
I don't have anything against polymer, but not crazy about striker fired. Hate was a pretty strong word though. I was just making a metaphor. That my opinion doesn't matter much.

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

Good Night Nurse! Why do any of you Houston folks want to live there? The amount of crime posts by phillip964 is just a part of the crime there. Houston is definitely one tough city! I think they get used to it. I try to avoid going into areas where the convenience stores have metal bars over the w...

Re: It's time for a reminder

We've had a few very likable knowledgable leftist come and go on this forum. I miss them. Not because I agreed with them, but because I appreciated their thought process and patience in dealing with the rest of us. I also believe that it is important that not only the die hard conservative recognize...

Re: Blackhawk Holster Recall

Blackhawk has not done well with holsters... :roll: I have one, (the Sportster) for my 92F Great holster love it, Folks knock the darned things but it is the only holster I feel comfortable to open carrying with. Snicking the safety off on a DA/SA isn't that big of a deal. Lots of people carry thes...

Re: thoughts on the future of political parties

I don't think the parties will ever have a permanent split, The partys today aren't about philosophical or moral differences its strictly about choosing a side for power and money.

How in the world does a defect like this get past pre-production testing?

Chas.
I would think it could be considered a feature by some, if it reliably kicked off the safety.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

There is no justice system. We have a legal system. No. It's called the Department of Justice, not the Department of Legal. I stand by my statement.

Re: Dicks destroys $5 million worth of weapons

The only non sequitur here is the assumption that Dicks or any corporations have a belief system. Dicks is a corporation. Corporations don't "believe" anything. The only responsibility corporations have is to maximize value for their shareholders. Chic-fil-a & Hobby Lobby are just two corporations ...

I've been pulled over a few times. I use the same procedure. I hand over my drivers license and my CHL/LTC when asked for my license. Sometimes I have been asked if I am carrying and where it is. I tell them where and they usually jokingly state "Don't show me yours and I won't show you mine", I've ...
