  2. Replace "liberal" with "non-shooter" and you've got a winner. There are also plenty of people who are ambivalent to our 2nd Amendment rights and they are just as dangerous. Shooters tend to be white, conservative males by a large margin. So if you have friends that don't fit into that category take them too. Take every person you know that is willing and able to hold a firearm and point it in a safe direction. I have found, at least for me, that guns were an introduction to freedom in general. When I saw what people would resort to in order to remove my 2nd Amend

  3. Sorry, I will NOT buy stolen property. Just because it was stolen by a government agency does not make it right. In fact, to me, it makes it worse. All of those little pocket knives, scissors, and other items stolen by the TSA and they have yet to actually catch their first terrorist. Remind me again why we put up with this cr@p?

  5. You should insist that the complex management make to towing phone call. It's their rule to enforce and keeps you out of the line of fire from your neighbor. The beef should remain between them and the management. Not you.

  6. [quote name='TrickyNicky' timestamp='1354156135' post='852208'] Just out of curiosity, the TSA has found and confiscated many knives, and lots of guns yet so many here are convinced they don't do their job. Maybe all those guns and knives were accidents, maybe everyone they've caught had noble intentions? Maybe some people just expect a terrorist to be wearing a t-shirt that says "terrorist" when they get caught at screening? Anyone else not wearing said shirt obviously is just absent minded enough to try going through airport security with a gun or r

Sure sounds like the guard went way too far in subduing someone who lifted a few CD's. I guess I just happen to actually care about a persons constitutional rights

  16. Seems like this is a job for the complex management. They should distribute a letter to the residence regarding parking in front of the garages, and warn about towing. They shouldn't put the responsibility on you. They should call the tow company if the behavior continues.

  17. Have a glock 23 ( still) was my first handgun on advice i recieved from a Tullahoma PD officer. Still like shooting it. Luckily i stocked up on ammo when i first got it. It's harder to conceal i agree, but a dependable gun. I use mine mainly as a winter carry and when out on the atv, Keepmy shield 9mm as my EDC and as a back-up pistol. Have 2 13 round magazines, and one 22 round magazine ( i got tired of reloading all the time at the range). If you find a good deal on one, get it. Never hurts to have another caliber. But it costs more to shoot than a 9mm.

[quote name='Lester Weevils' timestamp='1354162457' post='852276'] Well there's no sense trying to be logical about anything concerning the ATF, but that thompson in the picture above has an angled foregrip rather than vertical, and not only that, the angle isn't a whole lot larger than that Magpul AFG. My eye is easily fooled but looks about 45 degrees. So it ought to be a "genuine angled foregrip" and just as legal regardless whether that stock-less thompson has an OAL of less than 26"?

I don't go to PF changs often but it took 5 minutes outside to finally notice it. I do not open carry but it just makes no sense for these places to do something like post a 2 inch sign several feet from the door. I am more worried about not seeing this crap and go pay for my check and some bed wetter see my carry and get all ignorant. at the end of the da

  25. Just my opinion of course but if it isn't readily and easily visible before you enter an establishment it isn't "legal" regardless of other specifications it might have met. I try not to give my money to businesses that don't welcome my firearm along with my $$$ but I'm not going to throw my back out trying to find a sign either.

  31. History time. The SMLE .303 was developed over 100 years ago. Millitary rifles at that time, were just starting to come on board with magazine fed verses single shot rifles. SMLE stand for Semidetachable Magazine Lee Enfield. The enfield was one of the first with a detachable mag. If you have everer tried to change the Mag out quickly you will understand it was not designed to be use often. Hope this helps. Jim

  34. I'm guessing that isn't happening for these reasons... what can the average firearm bring as scrap metal? Who is the FFL that is doing the massive transfers to them? How can they afford all the paperwork, and the $10 per firearm they would have to pay for TICS? If they are selling the firearms to Steiner for scrap, how did they get the contract? When was the bidding announced, and why didn't a local gun store outbid them for the parts and working firearms alone? I can't imagine that scrap metal pays as much as even crappy guns turned in would sell for in a local gu

  36. Most people going from a Glock to an XD are typically very happy with their decision from what I've heard. I'm afraid going the other way may not be to your liking. As far as the Glock 23, it is exactly the same as all other glocks. This model simply designates .40 cal in a compact frame. So if youre looking for a Glock that is a compact .40 then that is the one for you. Top to bottom: Full size, compact, and sub-compact.

  37. It is an apartment complex, we ran it by management a few months ago because of a similar issue with multiple different people blocking one of our other garages. I really don't mind to leave a note once because we come in so late and leave so early, most of them have probably never seen anyone there and they think it's vacant. But 3 times with the same vehicle has passed my tolerance level.

That was the case of a friend of mines wife, a very nice lady who has a good job and no reason to shoplift.

  43. I'm talking about people thinking it's ok to let a thief be a thief because it's not on their property or it's a corporations property. The corporation doesn't think its worth the risk because the legal system has been so corrupted that anyone and everyone can be sued over nothing. If they wouldn't face frivolous lawsuits, then maybe they would be a bit more stringent about keeping their rightful goods in their store and not watching them walkout. Stealing pennies? Those pennies add up and they are someone's pennies. Rambo wannabe? Police reject private security? renta-a-cop? cop wanna
