  1. Best Gun Grease?

    Maybe worthless, but my new V-BOB came with a sample of TW25b with recommendations to use (lightly) on the rails. Now, it is certainly marketing, but a high end production 1911 manufacturer is endorsing the product. At the very least, I would think you could rest easily that it won't hurt anything (used as directed.)
  2. which do you think is better

    Both are great. Klarus has a sterling reputation on flashlight forums.
  3. i searched and found....

    Soooooo? What's the answer?
  4. Scandium/Ported Experience?

    S&W details that feature as "ported lighting cuts." Are you thinking about compensators? Any input on recoil? Thanks
  5. Scandium/Ported Experience?

    Anyone have experience with the S&W Scandium Frame 45 acp with Ported Lighting Cuts? The model # is 170344. I am specifically interested in whether the recoil of the light frame is countered effectively by the lighter slide (due to the porting cuts.) Thanks for your assistance.
  6. Free weekly Law of Self Defense

    Thanks for posting this. I've been watching the long versions (live show,) and I will get the short version from now on. This case was an important lesson. The guy's leaving the scene and posting that crap is probably what doomed him. But, one never knows what will drive prosecutors, police, judges, jurors, etc. Seems to be alien to anything that would happen to me, but I have witnessed road rage a couple of times recently. I'm glad I got the DVDs, and insurance. It would be great to have a TN prosecutor doing 5 min recaps of TN cases, but I'm guessing they wouldn't do it for fear of divulging info that might be misused.
  7. ISO SD9VE Parts & Knoxville Machine Shop

    I have a great shooting, 500 round SD9VE that I'll sell for $200, but that may be more than you want to put into it. It has Talon Grips, extended take down lever, an extra (ss 20lb) recoil spring and 2 mags. You may be able to sell those to recover some money. Message me if you're interested.
  8. Poor man's EDC X9?

    I have been looking for a P01 Omega. I like the 1911 trigger, and I want an all metal gun. The P01 Omega is the only non 1911 alternative that I have thought about. I saw a new Performance Center SW 3" 1911 advertised, that looks interesting.
  9. Poor man's EDC X9?

    Thanks for the replies and suggestions.
  10. Poor man's EDC X9?

    I really, really like the EDC X9, but can't afford anywhere near the price. Do you know of anything that would get close, and be affordable? STI maybe?
  11. Flashlights

    I have a ThruNight 1000 lumen light that meets all the same drop (I've tested that) and water resistance as SureFire. It's been a great light for 4 yr at a cost of $69 (4 yr ago.) Also, it is neutral color which I like much better than the cool white that most LEDs have.
  12. John Farnam Training

    Good info. I like this particular way to respond to cops on scene. It is also represented in "The Law of Self Defense." There are, across several different authors, some differing opinions on what to say. There is also, what to say to the 911 operator. I even made myself a credit card size, laminated assist card. Some authorities may use that against you, but it can be defended.
  13. Med kit?

    I just viewed the 1st aid classes on Personal Defense Network. Good for someone like me with no experience. Jan 8 & 9 Nashville Armory will have a 3 hr gunshot 1st aid class. And, On Target has had a 4 hr class that I want to attend ($150,) but they don't have any currently scheduled. This is definitely a worthwhile thread that I will continue to follow.
  14. Holster selection help needed

    Finding a light bearing holster is a b!^@($. You almost have to go to the holster mfr, and see what weapon/light combinations they use, before buying a light. The TLR1 and Surefire X300 seem to be more common than others. I have a TLR 2G laser/light, and still haven't found an option. Go to the MFR sites and use the holster finder function. Dara holsters has some listed. Bravo Concealment has a couple. The other recommendations were good, too, Comp Tac, Safariland.
  15. I think USCCA covers civil damages up to limits of coverage. 10% is the "usual" fee; my point was that none of them cover more than that. Information from Branca's book informs that in rare cases the bond may not be enough. And, anything more than 10% of the bond would not be covered by any of the plans.
