  1. You heard wrong. They openly discriminate against gun discussion and gun-related topics, to the point of deleting posts and shutting down groups without warning. I am confident this trend will accelerate.
  2. Man, if I'd known anyone would ever want it, I would have saved mine. I've handloaded .45 ACP for more than 40 years, and when the small-primer .45 cases came out, I had to be careful to keep any from getting into my brass pipeline. I've thrown away every .45 small-primer case that ever fell into my hands.
  3. I can't find anything on the state website about not being able to use centerfires during deer season. Even if you couldn't use centerfires, many coyotes are sent to hell by the .22 magnum. I don't know of anyone who has ever killed one with a shotgun -- it's hard to get that close -- but I guess it could happen. Cheers, Whisper
  4. Same here. Mine wiggles. But the .45 Shield does not. Both are magnificent handguns.
  5. That's a good deal. I'd take it if I were inside the target zone. Someone should snap this up.
  6. In Texas, murder (not capital murder, which we in TN would call first degree murder) is a first degree felony. Texas Penal Code §12.32 prescribes these sentences: • Imprisonment in the institutional division for life, or • Imprisonment in the institutional division for not more than 99 years or less than five years with the exception of aggravated sexual assault, which adds a 25-year minimum punishment if the victim is younger than 6, or younger than 14 and the offense contained threats of serious bodily injury or death, or use of a deadly weapon.
  7. I'm not expecting the sentence to be overturned. But in Texas the penalty for murder is 5 to 99 years, which gives a lot of leeway. All the news stations are saying "possible 99 year sentence," but nothing like that is going to happen. Should see get five years for needlessly killing a man who was sitting quietly in his own home watching a ball game and eating ice cream? I'd have a hard time finding fault with that.
  8. I thought the same thing, until I reviewed the Texas penal code. Negligent homicide in Texas requires that the death be unintentional. She clearly and explicitly said on the stand that she intended to kill him. Her case does meet the penal code definition for murder (which I find surprisingly broad).
  9. Centerfires are legal for coyotes. https://www.tn.gov/twra/hunting/equipment-methods.html
  10. Oh ho. I have one of these also, and it's totally magnificent. New models have that awful safety and a 20" barrel. The pre-safety version with 16-inch barrel is rarer than an honest politician. Hold onto yours. Mine will never be for sale. My kids and I fired thousands of .38 Special SWCs through mine in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it is still going strong. And a .357 JHP out of a 16-inch barrel would be an impressive home defense round.
  11. Come on, Cap, you can do better than that. Hang in there. Wearing us down is their only path to success. If even half of American gun owners would stand up and say "No you won't," all the congresscreatures pushing this nonsense would slither back under their rocks. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”― Edmund Burke
  12. Judging from their recent comments about not selling any more ARs, it seems to me they have no interest in being in the gun business.
