  1. A full, fun day with Randy Harris and 13 other shooters at the Ridge. If you don't know Randy, he is an excellent resource to our area and TGO. I have had a 1/2 dozen classes with him and certainly add to my toolbox with each one. We started with several pistol drills before lunch then after lunch we did rifle drills. Finished the day with transition rifle/pistol. Load of fun with like-minded folks. Certainly get your money's worth, plus it is a local class.
  2. That's what ServiceMaster is for.
  3. Tom Givens a well respected trainer advocates Federal Flight Control 00 buck with 8 pellets in the load. His tests shows good performance with less chance for 'flyers' vs. 9 pellet loads. Keep in mind, one does have to aim to hit the BG at home distances.

    gun safe

    If it works for you, I like the two safes concept. Easier for future moves. Also separate locations give better results in case of fire as well as theft. Takes more time to break into 2 different safes.
  5. A lot depends whether you are solo, have an abled body friend with you, or wife, kids , elderly family member. If possible, turn around and leave even if this means driving against traffic or crossing a median or other boundary. Unfasten seatbelt and stay in car. Roll down window less that 1/2", makes it harder to break with impact. Rolling down anymore and one can grab the top and simply pull until it breaks. If car breached, only choice is to protect your life and/or others. If solo, you may be able to exit your car and make a run for it. For me, I've will always travel with a long gun just for this occasion. Very fluid and difficult situation. Some decisions will be based on what you see happening to other vehicles and occupants.
  6. And you can hit him in the big toe and it is still use of deadly force.
  7. i invite you to shoot a USPSA or IDPA match and you must shoot all head shots.
  8. So Dave, I understand about AG opinion, but his opinion has more weight than mine. The 2015 opinion was certainly more recent than the previous one posted. The opinion now seems to be supported by the amended law. So the simple answer is, some felons cannot possess black powder weapons.

  10. On average, the hit rate in most police shootings is a little over 20%. These are individuals in close proximity. The average citizen will probably be lower given little to no training and the added stress. Which brings up the point, where do the remaining 80% of the rounds impact? One is responsible for every round fired, and for whatever it impacts is on you. This makes sense to try and impact the largest area of the target.....center mass.
  11. That is exactly why a buyer should go to a rental range and try guns out, or go with others with similar guns to try. Ignorance wastes a lot of money, both on buyer and seller sides.
  12. try several different brands and wts of ammo as well. it can be surprising how brands/wts of ammo can be more or less accurate.
  13. JIMO FWIW........a shotgun is a fine defensive weapon, with a stock. It is a handicap without one. They still need to be aimed and can be very effective even with head shots. But not having a stock certainly limits its usefulness.
  14. the bad guys always pick time and place.....
  15. Precision Delta has a good quality 147 gr. wad cutter at reasonable prices. They are remans but a good company.
