  1. I have been a TGO member since 2008; more active some years than others, but I am committed to checking in daily. Last autumn I realized how much I missed being on TGO on a regular basis. In the time I have been on TGO, 99.9% of the folks I have met have been kind, generous, funny, helpful (even when I ask dumb questions or make inane comments), and supportive when I have shared personal issues. As we start 2020 I want to offer a genuine and sincere THANK YOU to all who have interacted with me. It is my goal to be a friend, support, and advocate for everyone I meet on TGO. Let'

  2. I have a friend buried in Arlington who lost her life when an EFP hit the Buffalo vehicle she was riding in as the medic on a route clearing mission with engineers, so I had a bit of personal interest while reading we smoked "Haji Qassem". My first thought at this was "holy ####", and I'm willing to say it was a happy feeling. This guy was as important as can be to Iran's foreign policy aims, and the stories about him probably undersell how good at his job he was. Both the Bush and Obama administrations didn't think it was worth the predicted backlash to kill Soleimani, even though he was c

  3. I spoke to the Handgun Permit Office in Nashville on January 2nd for an update on reciprocity. I was told that all 50 states have been contacted, but so far only 13 states have responded. Of the 13, most were states that already did not recognize TN's permit, so (of course) they simply declined to recognize the new CCP as well. I did not ask about any specific states confirming that they will honor TN's CCP. However, the Handgun Unit did say that one state - North Dakota - has already confirmed that it will honor Tennessee's ENHANCED Carry permit but will NOT honor Tennessee's Concealed Carry

  4. @Luckyforward, this is an incredibly kind and thoughtful post and indicative of the high caliber of people that we are so fortunate to have assembled here. There are undoubtedly those who may feel that they are not as welcomed here as others, but the fact is that it takes all of us and our varying thoughts and opinions on things to make this community work. Even the folks I argue with. I have said before that TGO is nothing without the members, and that is a very true statement. I appreciate each of you and your contributions to this community more than you will likely ever know.

  6. xtriggerman makes an excellent point. If you want to carry a SA pistol and insist that it be a 9mm. you just can't do any better than a Hi-Power.

  7. I ran across one of these on Gunbroker recently and got it today. Quick blurb from Wikipedia: I'd never seen the BDAO model in person. Browning gave them a confusing name, BDA, which was already applied to the Beretta-made .380s. The included "manual", about 4 stapled and Xeroxed pages, calls it BDA9. If I'm reading the date code correctly, this one was built in 1996. I gave $550 for it, which is more than I would have paid in the past, but seeing as these things are only getting more scarce, I felt comfortable with the price. I'm keeping my eyes open for a DA/SA one as we

  8. I'v carried a std 1911A1 that I cut down to Officers size before there was an Officers and assembled hundreds more. I agree with a few others in that it is not an ideal 9mm carry gun..... at all. Its specifically sized for a 45 rd. All the extra girth in the slide & barrel is all oxymoron in typical med frame sized 9mm guns. I can understand the desire for such a classic J Browning design and keeping within that line of character I would suggest Brownings last Great pistol design. The Hi Power. NO ONE can dispute the Hi Power's domination of the 9mm rd in proven mil spec hard ware. Its per

  10. I've never made a secret of the fact that my first loves in handguns have always been S&W revolvers and 1911s. However, in the category of DA/SA semi-autos, my preference runs to Sig Sauer. More specifically, the older all metal Sigs preferably made in Germany. Honestly, the newer plastic Sigs do nothing for me and I have no interest in them. I currently own four. As you can see, I have a liking for the Hogue smooth wooden grips. I'm also a big fan of the Short Reset Trigger kit (SRT) and all my guns have them.

  11. If you are competent in your ability and are confident in your gun’s proven reliability, $300 or $3000, they’ll all get the job done just the same. To all y’all extolling the virtues of the HiPower, y’all know what’s up. Ain’t nothing like it.

  15. Off topic. But after watching several of the FBI and Ayoob videos, I drifted into Hickcock45 again. Man. I think I lost about 2 hours watching him. Love the guy. 45 and revolver videos today. Occurred to me today he looks like a friend I lost a few weeks ago. Same lanky frame, long shirts and a worn cap. Even talks a bit like him. Was sort of like listening to Doug again for a bit. I miss you buddy. Hope to meet up again someday.

  16. Yeah. I figured Pincus had less than pure intentions. This is so far above his pay grade. Anyway, everybody's loss. If the NRA hadn't plowed into the swamp when they did, we could be swimming in horrible gun laws. I like the smaller groups, especially GOA. They just don't carry enough weight to move anything much in the big cesspool. And, it's not something that can be built overnight.

  17. One way to purge the board is to shrink it to a manageable size that allows it to be effective in its role of providing governance and oversight. The NRA should be less than 1/3 of its current size. Of course once again, for that to happen WLP has to go.

  18. I don't want to say that I've completely and utterly given up on the NRA, but whenever I see them post... anything... my reaction is usually severe eye-rolling and violent gagging. Until the NRA board is absolutely purged of the Old Guard and WLP is unemployed, I will have no faith in the organization's ability to do anything effective for the 2A or to be relevant to the modern gun owner.

  20. This has been my primary carry for about 25 years now. For me at least, its the perfect carry gun. Its a lightly modified 1959 Colt Commander in .45acp. At that time there was no Combat Commanders, so all Commanders were lightweights. I bought it used at a gun show some 30 years or more ago. Frankly, it was a mess. I refinished it once myself, but was never truly happy with the results. So in 2010 I sent it back to Colt and had them refinish it. As you can see, 10 years of carry hasn't hurt it much. In recent years I've considered replacing it with a newer version. However my mods,

  22. I'm surprised we don't have a thread for this on TGO yet. What are your thoughts on the matter? I think it's long overdue. I keep reading remarks from people who are younger than some of the shoes I have in my closet, to the effect that we don't need to be sucked into another conflict in the Middle East. Some of these kids weren't even swimming in their fathers' loins yet during the late 1970s and don't realize that Iran has been at war with the US since 1977 and we've just not really done much to publicly recognize it over the last 40 years.

  24. Simple physics. Big slow bullet out of a bigger, heavier gun has less recoil than a small fast bullet out of a much smaller, lighter gun. I've shot some pocket size .380s that down right hurt.

  30. This was just one of those guns I used to see from time to time in shops and was never really all that interested in... until I realized I hadn't seen any in years and I was getting more curious about them. It's also a difficult gun to find on Gunbroker because nobody really knows what to call it :)

  33. Remember, Quantico was built on a USMC base, and the initial FBI firearms training was actually provided by Marine instructors. Prone has not been part of the last two iterations of the FBI pistol qual. While it has its place in a military context due to explosive ordnance, it has much less relevance in the domestic US.

  41. Simple answer here..... Your carry weapon is your most important tool/weapon. You should shoot it at the range, or wherever, more than any other weapon! Everything else that you own in the realm of handguns/rifles, etc. is for a secondary level of importance to the one that you carry for the very protection of you and your loved ones. So, shoot the heck out of it and work on drawing/sighting/firing. If you wear it out sooner, so be it. It is to save your life and nothing is more important. Do not use one "like" your carry, but use the very one you plan on saving your life.

  42. I miss the days when presidents asked for congressional approval before launching military attacks. Aside from that I have no issue with that guy dying. Iran is not our friend. If we're going to go by that logic though, why doesn't he order some strikes against Saudi Arabia while he's at it? They only pretend to like us.

Wonder who makes up the compensation committee that set all this in motion? But seriously, if anyone wants to just throw away money at something other than an ex-wife, forget the NRA and give it to me. I promise, I'll be as carefree with it as WLP and crew would be.
