  1. Thinking about this more. Each to his own, but just thinking about new shooters. Unless one is looking at around a 8# + trigger, I am not a big fan of a glock or other type handguns without a safety. I understand the argument for simplistic operation, but unless is willing to train and be intimately familiar with their pistol, I think the safety is a good idea. How many of you started hunting and walked around with the safety off. Duck hunt with the gun sitting with the safety off. Point is, one carries a gun, handles the gun a whole lot more than the actual shooting of the gun. Until one becomes proficient, the point of being safe has to be #1 concern.

    Electronic ear muffs

    I have peltor tactical sports, superior to the walker muffs. However, the walker razor is my fav. for pistol or field use. Really nice for shotgun use.

    I lost my best friend

    Terrible feeling and loss. Been there and done that several times and never easy. You know dogs sense things we can’t , I know they feel our love as well.

    Ruger PC Carbine

    i have shot both the AR version of the PCC as well as the Ruger. My preference is the Ruger. With a red dot both are very quick to the target and spot on. I agree that it is an excellent choice for a defensive weapon. Spits out the 115gr >1300fps.

    Safety Reminder- warning, very graphic pictures

    over the years I have seen several farm injuries, especially from corn pickers. They look very similar , howerver they start at the fingers.

    Point well-taken. Like others hard for me to believe it was a handgun injury especially at close range. Shotgun, maybe. Anyway, bad injury and things can happen in a blink.

    Question about selling at a gun show:

    you have an unexpected inventory with really no rush to make a bad deal. Join here and you will probably move the guns. Even word of mouth may do so. Hard to get a fair price at dealers as you have discovered. HCP is generally a good screen, but not legally binding/absolute. As long as you believe the buyer is able to do so legally, you are good to go. To be on the safe side, unless you personally know the individual involved, I would make sure buyer is over 21.

    Buckshot Question

    TCA 39-17-1307e (permitless carry) includes boats same as cars. I haven't read anything that limits the ammo type in these legal weapons.

    Uber driver shoots in SD

    Aggressive driver did not have a gun. I think he said he did. No gun found on him or in the truck.
  12. My initial impression, don’t stop, or at least drive off and call 911. Not saying the guy was wrong to shoot, but it seems like in FL people are going to the gun just a little too early. https://nypost.com/2018/08/29/uber-driver-fatally-shot-man-in-self-defense-cops/amp/

  14. Agree with the confusion regarding the statement. Just another good reason to let your attorney do the talking beyond a few vital details
  15. Depends, suspect had a gun. If he was pointing back behind him as he was running, still a threat and still puts one in jeopardy.
