  1. One1 said “.... It’s just something i do toalways know the gun is never loaded.....” The gun is always loaded. I understand what you are doing and saying but that concept can be a spark for tragedy.
  2. So do we have room to imprison the majority of Congress?
  3. yeah, I know, that's why I have 3 of them. Sexy, but high maintenance.
  4. Just another example of why I am sold on the M&P full size 45. Works every time and don't have to baby it. Would have never bothered with the 1911s if I had shot this one first.
  5. Always a concern/fear of mine; besides being embarrassing it can be tragic. I always preach handle a gun as if it is a poisonous snake. Deserves full attention and complete focus at all times. A momentary loss of focus can have deadly consequences.
  6. The problem was the guy running his mouth before the shooting, not afterwards. Reports show he had a history of doing so. No imminent threat of serious bodily injury or death. IMO bad shoot. Go directly to jail, do not collect $200. Shame but an excellent lesson to all that carry.
  7. Been a SCCY fan for several years. Sent one back as it did not handle JHP. Got it back in 1 wk, handled multiple brands without issue. Great CS. Recent story of one damaged in house fire that they replaced, no charge. My shoots good and and I think is one of the Best Buy’s for an American made, reliable, and excellent CS gun.
  8. unique works just fine....just doesn't meter as well as some others. My concern would be your 'plunk' test and as a result your crimp.
  9. Assume you are referring to 9mm. 1.130 is generally good to go. Your taper crimp should be around .377 - .378
  10. It use to be that there was a 6 month grace period to renew an expired permit. I believe that is why in 2015 you had to redo the course, etc. About 2017 that changed to an 8 yr period before having to do the course, thus your dad's situation was more favorable. To go along with the current topic, one has to be a TN resident to have a TN permit unless on active duty. However, having tried to help someone on active duty, it is not an easy process. I would recommend talking with the Nashville office. It would not surprise me if they give a inactive status, but again I am trying to make sense of the situation.
  11. Compliments of the TFA website. https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/attorneygeneral/documents/ops/2018/op18-04.pdf
  12. Wonder if trigger is sticking on frame?
  13. Good prices and rebates on M&Ps plus multiple aftermarket equipment.
  14. Unfortunate and just bad luck. Doesn’t sound like Mason did anything to cause this. Burns are terrible injuries but so much can be done now to improve outcomes, especially at burn centers such as Vandy. Prayers and all the best to the family to deal with this.
  15. Nothing hard at all about the 380 EZ, almost anyone can load the mag and manipulate the slide. Once loaded, flip the safety and fire away. Cap of 10 + 1. All bullets will penetrate walls, 9mm as much as a .223. If proficient with the EZ, may not need much else. If I had to look at a long gun, would be an inexpensive Valdiz at Academy. 20ga holds 5 +1, easy to practice with field loads; slugs and 000 buck readily available. However, this is a heavier gun, awkward to use in CQ and heavy loads may be a little much even in the 20 ga. Not a fan of revolvers for most women of little experience.
  16. Have seen them off Weisgarber Road for over 20 yrs. Springtime they really cut up a ruckus in the evenings.
  17. depending on how much you intend to shoot/load, nothing wrong with starting with one of the progressive presses and load one round at a time. this will save a little money and make it easy to progress as your comfort level increases. I am getting my money's worth out of the Hornady LNL. If you can find someone that has a pet load and especially if you can get one on one time with them, simply copy them as a starting point.
  18. Dave guess we will just have to disagree. Branca is the leading defensive attorney in the country in regard to carry law. Sought out by all major 2nd Amendment media for opinion and appearances for his expertise. I have followed him for several years as well as attending his live course. No one person has kept the gun crowd as informed as he. If you read his notice completely, or followed his blogs you would know that he is a life member of the NRA as well as a donor. Given his position with the available insurance carriers, it is not hard to believe he would be privy to some advance info and notice.
  19. NRA carry guard now history. Not renewing or writing policies. https://lawofselfdefense.com/nra-carry-guard-cancelled/
  20. In the strictest sense Castle Doctrine questionably applicable. But having a gun pointed at you is sufficient.
  21. Per recent 'knowledge dump' by Greg Ellifritz YOU. ARE. NOT. HELPING. “Personally I look at the photo and see a thoughtless attention whore trying to ‘scare the straights.’ The most likely result is that he will scare them straight into the ballot box to vote away our rights. As such this person is not my friend, ally or comrade in the struggle; he is an active threat to my rights.” If you are interested in open carry, you may also enjoy Ash Hess’ perspective on how open carry serves to desensitize security personnel. Link opens to Facebook.
  22. Welcome. For a 1st post/question, yours is a doozy. Lots of variables and situations which brings up a lot of 'depends'. As you pointed out, your best option in most all situations is to leave the area. Once you sense something is going wrong, it is always best to leave before things go bad. As far as your car is concerned with regard to the castle doctrine, basically your passenger compartment has to be violated as far as impact weapons, kicking windows out, or opening your door. Simply beating on your car is not enough to warrant deadly force on your part. Circumstances can vary this response. Being outside your vehicle, returning to retrieve a firearm always will raise some questions and may weaken a SD argument. One of the reasons it is best to obtain a carry permit, have the gun on you in case you need it for an imminent threat.
  23. Basically WRONG as usual by the press. "Stand your ground" basically relieves one of the duty to retreat, or as Branca would explain the element of avoidance. One's defense of habitation, which I presume would be the home would come under the castle doctrine. The home would be highly defensible property, but that's about the limit of property protection. The simple fact that they were assaulted by a group, armed no less, and shots fired would seem to make this an open and shut case of self-defense, justifiable homicide IMO, barring any other circumstances. https://lawofselfdefense.com/final-score-homeowner-3-armed-robbers-0/
