  1. Kinda off topic, but maybe not; The part about this that is troubling to me is the definition of “under the influence”. Are you under the influence after one beer? Or six? For driving, we have established a quantifiable definition of impairment. Do we use that same BAC here? I would prefer that over officer discretion. Because of this, I just wait for the beer until I get home.
  2. That was kinda my point. If you carry a big gun, get some small mags. If you don’t want to carry a big gun with small mags, get a small gun before they are about as hard to find as ammo right now. I think by nature, we prepare for the unforeseeable. Given the landscape, I think we need to prepare for low round counts (at best)
  3. I know not everyone would feel this way, but if I’m limited in capacity I’m not toting a big gun. My 239 would probably turn into the primary. (I know, it weighs more and isn’t that much smaller) I’m curious if we will see people loading up on lower capacity guns so we have something to carry when we wake up to a 1:30am executive order that limits mag capacity outside the home or something of the like.
  4. I think it’s safe to say the next four years won’t be “pleasurable” for gun owners. With the heavy use of executive action and the time it takes to overturn these actions, has anyone looked at their lower capacity carry guns to make sure your covered if you suddenly can’t carry the G19. I figure the Clinton days maybe coming back sooner rather than later. I could see a 10 round cap. Do we get grandfathered? Who knows. I was too young to be a gun owner in the Clinton days and don’t know how that worked. Any insight from those who have lived through a anti gun administration with a maj
  5. I purchased one week after moving and updating my address online. I had no issues. I know it’s been a while, but someone might search for this in the future.
  6. Well, it happened today. Ran across a Sig p239 for $375. It’s in 40 (for now). Sig and HK always seem to take my money.
  7. Appreciate it but he’s about 4 hours from me. Back to you, bet it’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.
  8. Let’s say you have the “basics” covered. Single stack carry, double stack carry, home defense and etc. you’ve got a 500-600 itching pocket, what are you buying?
  9. Venmo on the way. Keep your chin up. It’ll get better
  10. Praying for you, you’ll have this behind you in no time.
  11. Apparently there is a law in VA (surprise) that fueled this rumor in TN. Something along the lines of it being illegal to carry while wearing anything that might conceal your identity (mask). If remember there was a statement by the attorney general that this was not applicable during the covid pandemic.
  12. We’ve been shopping for a home for a while now and unable to find the right house in the right place. I would love to talk to a builder/developer to get some info on how to prepare to build. I’ll be happy to provide a beer or two for you time if your local. if you have built recently, any guidence you might share would be much appreciated. So far, from my research, I have found building is a good way to spend 500k on a 350k home; but it’s the home you want. Still trying to wrap my head around this concept.....
  13. When we went boating a lot, I’d back down til I could tie the boat the dock. Let her get in. Then take off the tow straps and eye strap. I’d back up, launch the boat and let her “drive it” back to pick me up. If things went wrong, I’d grab the rope and pull it home. Without a dock, none of this works.
  14. Two things; if you can’t get traction, contact your state rep. They are getting paid to cut through some of the red tape. If that doesn’t work, an attorney might. As you know, they typically don’t work for free. You're already paying the state rep so I’d start there.
  15. .gov here. “Essential” so we work regardless. I know government gets a lot of crap around here, mostly deserved, but the response to this in-house has been pretty impressive. Very measured and surprisingly well managed. The policy’s laid out for this disaster have a lot more common sense than I would have expected. Far from perfect, but as a tax payer as well, I’m pretty pleased.
  16. I’d be will to bet it will do the same thing with other documents as well, such as passports, visas and other sensitive documents.
  17. Let me wager into this lightly. Assuming no tax dollars are spent promoting. What’s the harm? Also, elected officials are in office to represent the majority without oppressing the minority. Seems like this passes the sniff test. You don’t have to participate. The man promoting it was elected to office by the majority of the state (allegedly). So, who offended? Other than the always offended.
  18. If you haven’t filed for retirement, you don’t have to take part A. In fact, you won’t get it unless you file for it. Part A (HI) can cause some tax problems if you have it while working and making contributions to a heath savings account in the same year. Just something to keep in mind. I’d advise anyone in that situation to talk to a tax pro.
  19. Wish federal employees would get the same rights. Looking at you, Donnie. We do get an armed guard who can’t leave his post at the front of the building if the #### hits the fan in the back. Comforting.
  20. Heading to Nashville this weekend with the family. Staying around green hills. Plan to hit the zoo. Carry friendly? Any areas of the city to avoid or be extra vigilant? We plan to walk around downtown on Saturday during the day Also, any food recommendations would be great. We will have a 5 year old so nothing too crazy. Bbq, pizza (if it’s out of this world) and of course, where to go for hot chicken? Thanks in advance!
  21. Maybe I’m the last person to hear about this?? Any thoughts? Anyone tired one? Looks like a pretty stress free way to carry a spare without giving up belt space. thoughts? https://theneomag.com/product-category/neomags/
  22. Top one is most surprising. USP’s are designed and tested to take a squib load without any damage, what did that guy do?!?!?
  23. Duplicate thread. I swear I looked before I posted
  24. Details are sketchy at best right now but this is what I can gather. Husband goes to dentist office where his wife works. Shoots his wife. unfortunately it has been announced she did not survive. A patient in the waiting room drew his weapon and shot the aggressor several time and held him at gunpoint until the police responded 6 mins later. The aggressors condition had not been released. ID of all involved is being withheld at this time. Wcyb and Wjhl seem to be following closely if you want to read more.
