  1. Social Media is the is the real epidemic. The amazing thing about this is there is ZERO mention or focus on that fact that all of this whackadoodles post up on social media before they go do this and their AGE. Outside the Las Vegas shooter, they are all young social media addicts who are clearly insane. Its so simple. Shut down Facebook, Twitter, and related social media platforms and this pretty much goes away. Or at a minimum, shut them down in the US. The overnight shooting, again we see the same pattern and the left media chomped at the bit to throw out '.223 high capacity rifle

  3. Exactly why I don't have an NRA or any other gun sticker on my truck. Anyone can call 911 and say a guy in red chevy tag# just pointed a pistol at me. Most folks with NRA sticker probably has a pistol in truck. Cop stops you and you have pistol. Lawyer fees may be least of your worries.

  4. Well, last time we had accessories used to aid in a mass shooting (Las Vegas), our NRA endorsed President stood tall and *checks notes* banned bump stocks...rut-roh.

  5. I don’t think there will ever be anything to put back in the bottle; at least not over race. Friends, families and workplaces are simply to integrated to have a race war; race is not an issue. Race is only an issue for those using it to attack Trump, get elected (same thing), or for financial gain because it is their job. It bothers me, but does not surprise me, to see the liberal MSM line up to jump on these claims of “White Nationalism”. That’s a non-starter for anyone who has an IQ higher than their age. But the MSM (even FOX) seems to think that is what we want to hear them talk abou

  6. You said it there. Absolutely. With a corollary of How much lawyer you can afford = How much truth you can buy I appreciate the experience of wearing a badge and seeing many domestic disputes leads to cynicism and that all parties are guilty or have something to be guilty about. I'll kindly disagree that is always the case. Sometimes, people just suck. But of course...you know that all too well.

  11. What's to organize ? I didn't tune in to local news until 6 last night but by 7pm I knew what brand of underwear the el Paso shooter liked to wear. My point is the media helps to feed these maniacs that might be sitting there contemplating doing a similar act.

  12. Evening news says: Young man, early 20s. Picture shows a AK type rifle in his hands. Taken into custody without incident. No shots fired by Police. Brief mentions of the words "socialist" and "manifesto". I'm guessing that what we have here is crazy young man with a agenda he wants to spread. I'm also guessing he intends to use his trial as a platform.

  15. And yet the liar Cory Booker was claiming this morning that Trump hasn't done any gun control measures. That's just not so!, and Chucky Todd knew that yet did not correct the loudmouth. Unbiased media my butt! I was yelling at the old boob tube this morning. I'd bet Trump will go after 100 round mags now...not that it will stop deranged people from mass killing. Only a police state on perpetual lockdown will stop this sort of stuff as we all know. Saying that... outlawing 100 rd. magazines is the least offensive measure he can throw at law abiding gun owners. Most don't even know they exi

  17. Not true at all for red flag situations, as well as a few others. Accusation is all it takes, you can be "mis-quoated" on top of the what the person reporting it said their perceptions of a statement meant and how it made them feel unsafe. You are assuming folks are not malicious or vindictive and you bring it on yourself. I was involved in a case 3 years ago as witness. Total miscarriage of justice. While the victim (the person who was claimed to make statements they did not) got his firearms back, it cost over 20k on top of damage done to many of the firearms. From what I was told, no

  18. When is the media going to start taking some responsibility for stoking and promoting these lunatics? Glorifying these cowards may sell ad space, but it does our country a great injustice. I do not blame the media alone, but they do hold a percentage of blame each time these things happen in my opinion. I'll not hold my breath.

  19. I feel fairly confident that the police wont try to charge me in a self defense shooting here in middle Tennessee. But I certain ly do not have any confidence at all, despite what the Nashville DA says, that He wont pursue charges. Like DaveTN said above, he is already charging good guys. I can only wonder why he is bowing to the media like he is...is he seeking higher office or something? The Delke shooting appears to me as justified as can be. Bad guy with a gun, it shouldn't matter where the bullets entered his body, all that should matter is that he got put down before he hurt someone

  22. The irony is, in effect, your first amendment rights kind of fly out the window to some degree. You have to be very careful what you say as it could be misinterpreted. And you have the burden of proof, not your accuser. Essentially you get someone who has a grudge against you and they can claim you said something in a threatening manner and you don't feel safe.

  23. I have a Smith and Wesson model 36. It is a great little 5 shot snubby. What's the biggest complaint from people after they shoot a snub nosed 38. "It's too snappy!" Enter the Pitbull 380. A six shot cylinder, three inch barrel and the patented ejector for ACP casings, plus the 380 has comparable ballistics to the 38. That was my justification for buying one any how. I picked it up this morning and had a chance to run a few rounds through it. I was surprised at how smooth the DA trigger pull was and the cylinder gap is next to nothing. The lock up could have been a little tighter but it is w

  24. Falcon Reborn I decided to take a trip for my birthday to the Ozarks. Slight turn to Nighthawk Customs in Berryville, Ar... Stayed in beautiful Eureka Springs. Month or so ago, I sent my Falcon in to the original builder for a face lift. I am second owner. It left NH in 2013 with a black slide and olive drab green frame. Evidently, the owner got sick of the green and had the whole gun cerakoted. Normally most of their black 1911s are Nitride. So I had them re- nitride the whole gun back to orig look. I changed out the g10 grips with another set of NH grips with a pewter NH emblem. I

  26. That takes center state for the sad and unfortunate political environment we have with the left biased media. The facts and the poor victims dont really play for them, they are ghouls and seem to get excited by being able to put the silhouette of an AR on their posts and broadcasts. They chomp at the bit to do this and its obvious in stories as soon as they can confirm it. The AK silhouette probably is less effective for them, but they are playing up the military assault weapon aspect since non gun owners think commercial rifles are the same thing the military use. Their obvious motivatio

  27. Wasnt the Gilroy shooter also using an AK? No doubt copycat. The patter of copycatting is pretty clear with how quickly the next mass shootings happen. Wish the media would stop giving these whackadoodles a stage. They see the last guy and his air play and then go out and do this. Beto is already using this for a call for "military style rifle" bans.

  28. I’m not saying the news story was incorrect. I’m saying “Good Guys” are being charged. Officer Andrew Delke has been charged with murder. If he is convicted it will further restrict our ability to defend ourselves against criminal thugs. He was chasing a criminal who was fleeing his attempt to stop him. The criminal had a gun in his hand, did not throw it down, did not stop when ordered to do so, and continued to run for cover. The Officer was immediate danger of death or great bodily harm. So you have a home invader try to force his way into your house. As you pull your gun he turns to r

  29. I have never put a light on a weapon. But having the Fenix PD35 V2, I think I would try this setup; the PD35 V2 is excellent. I like the V2 better than the TAC because of the side switch, but on a weapon light I don’t guess it would matter. I could use the same setup with the V2, but it doesn’t appear to come as a kit. All the stuff in the kit is available individually. https://www.amazon.com/EdisonBright-Tactical-Flashlight-Rechargeable-Charging/dp/B0728KLCQ1/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=fenix+pd35+tac+led+flashlight+tactical+bundle&qid=1564849844&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1

  30. I use to always recommend Streamlight TL-R HLs for inexpensive weaponlights. I have now broken 3 in about 3 years. Two tailswitches cracked. One down the center and one where the pivot pin sits. The other I had on my 8"pdw with a tape switch and the tape switch tail cap separated from itself where it meets the light. Hard to describe. So in short I have switched to Surefire minus a couple Streamlights. I have yet to break one over about 8 years of owning different ones. My original x300 is still running strong just low on lumens compared to current offerings. Not hating on Streamlig

  31. The 1911 is an easy gun to work on. I don't have the equipment to do machine work. I've never fitted a barrel. But I have done pretty much everything else to one. Just go slow, take your time and test fit often. Remember that its easy to remove metal, but damned hard to put it back. I highly recommend Jerry Kuhnhausen's book on gunsmithing the 1911. Years ago I asked an old gunsmith how do you get in this business? His reply was "Jump in and go for it. But be prepared to pay for your mistakes."

  32. My grandmother and great grandmother both quilted a lot. When my great grandmother died my mom got me several stiched quilt tops. My wife's grandmother finished them for us. Make a them extra special since she is gone too now. W The ones I used to love as a kid were the ones my granny cut up old clothes to make. Tons of polyester 70's clothes to be exact. Lol

  33. Clover I noted that you have a HCP, which surprises me that these questions and scenarios weren't discussed. Also remember what is said on the internet can and will be held against you. You will never lose a gunfight you are not involved in; avoidance is the best policy.
