    Extar EP 9 Pistol...kind of anyway

    Looks like a fun setup in the video for a reasonable price. Wish I could see it in person though

    Ruger LCP II

    The finish is really my only complaint with the Kel-Tec. Mine has some wear on the bluing of the slide (see pic). Several times in the past I have tried to order a parkerized replacement slide from Kel-Tec, but if I remember correctly it has been out of stock each time. Do you notice the size difference without the +1 mag and carrying in your pocket?

    Ruger LCP II

    I pocket carry a kel tec p3at on occasion. That Ruger looks to be much nicer. May have to consider upgrading at some point if the size difference is negligible

    handgun Mico/Subcompact...Beretta Nano...?

    Doesn't seem to be much love for the Nano. I have one and like it. I don't have issue with the recoil being snappy. I think the slide is heavy enough that it mitigates felt recoil fairly well. The only gripe I would have is the trigger. The Nano's trigger pull is smooth, but it feels LONG to me. I also miss the shorter trigger reset that you get on say a Glock over the longer trigger reset on the Nano. I think the Nano is a good gun. I bought it before the Glock 42 and 43 were introduced. I have replaced my use of the Nano with a Glock 43, but still like to bring out the Nano and shoot it every once and a while.

    Ruger LCR Ankle Holster

    Looks nice. My LCR has the crimson trace laser. Do you think it would fit with the laser grip? Do you use a calf strap with it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Ruger LCR Ankle Holster

    Looking to get an ankle holster for a Ruger LCR. Anyone have any experience with ankle carry or recommendations on a specific holster?

    On line stock and mutual fund trading

    I have an IRA at Charles Schwab and have had no issues. Online interface and iPhone app work great for trades or research. Their website offers online advising which is easy to understand and implement. I've also talked with their "financial consultants" a handful of times and gotten the help I need.

    If you had to pick between...

    Carry gun. Went ahead with the 43, but after reading all of the replies maybe I should have gone with the 19. Gun is going to be a gift and I know they only like to carry small firearms. Person has a few compact (Glock 19-esque size) and full size firearms, but just doesn't carry them due to size. Any thoughts on a suitable inside the waistband holster? I carry in a cross bread mini-tuck, but do not think they care for the large strip of leather. Anyone have experience with vedder holsters? Was looking at the light tuck kydex IWB. Thanks for all of the input!

    If you had to pick between a Glock 19 and Glock 43 for your first Glock, which would you choose and why?

    Hers and His Plumbing

    I've spent probably 9 hours of my life on hold with American home shield (all sitting in traffic on an hour long commute). They had to send 2 companies out for a plumbing issue and one for an A\C unit. They do not make anything easy for the customer. It's a complete racket. They sell their "warranty" product with no intention of actually providing any semblance of respectable customer service. When they do send a company to fix the problem, they will only authorize the bare minimum "repair" to whatever equipment is malfunctioning. "His and Hers" also responded to my plumbing issue, collected their $75 trade service call fee, then never showed back up to fix the problem. Every company they recommended for my area had the worst reviews online. Having said that, if you have the time to wait on near endless holds to fight with them, it may be worth it. On my A\C unit, I chose a cash in lieu of repair and got 600 bucks. Used that cash towards a replacement instead of having them repair the 15 year old unit that parts were not available for. They are a COMPLETE pain in the butt to deal with, but I have to say that the costs of repairs that were covered far exceeded the price I payed for the warranty. Sent from my K88 using Tapatalk

    Best Pizza in Greater Nashville area is...?

    Joeys House of Pizza is my favorite. Problem is I can never get there during their business hours

    Snow still lightly falling just south of Nashville, but looks like it may stop. I think the weather forecast has it stopping tonight too. Hopefully it won't get any worse.
