  1. Gun shows are a waste of time right now, unless you want something you just can't live without and don't mind paying over top dollar for it.
  2. That is true. Keep in mind though, you may also have to convince a jury you were in imminent fear for your life. At the end of the day, it's not so much what you think, it is what a jury would likely think.
  3. I'm not so sure we will ever win another election. In my opinion they stole the last two, there is talk of making Puerto Rico a state, and plans to make all illegals citizens. Then add the fact that they want to pack the court. If their plans come to fruition, I honestly don't see any way out of this without going to a place none of us want to go. At this point all our hopes are basically pinned on Joe Manchin, Him and maybe a few others that I don't know about may be against the more radical ideas.
  4. I watched a video from a very respected self defense instructor about this very thing. His thinking was to not look strong, saying it makes you a target. I'm not sure I agree with him. I think the balance sits somewhere in between. I don't believe in walking around, open carrying, and decked out in "tactical" gear. I do think that looses any element of suprise, and if something bad is fixing to go down, you'll be the first one dealt with. If something is fixing to go down, you don't want to be first one to take the assault, I don't care how much training you've had, you'll likely be dead
  5. Maybe he doesn't give a flip about gun rights, but if he knows he could piss off a liberal, he may would do it for that fact alone. Aside from the "bump stock ban" Trump has been pretty indifferent towards gun rights. I'll take that any day than somebody like Biden, or eventrually Harris, that is going to take an active role to try to disarm us.
  6. Why so? There are plenty of ways to "conceal" OWB. Sure, there is going to be a bump in the outer garment in certain positions, but the causual observer will never look twice.
  7. And come January, it will all go away and you'll never hear another word about it. Sadly, if Binden takes office we will never know the truth, because they won't even take a look at it. Trump tried to take on the Machine, but it was just too much for him to do. It was all setup awhile ago, by even people in his own administration. This country is gone, most people are just to blind to know it, and I think we all know what it will take to get it back.
  8. This is probably currently the best chance we've ever had for this happening. While probably not likely, I could see something like this happen. I've got a feeling, if Trump does in fact loose, that he won't be afraid to go "scorched earth" on his way out.
  9. I was talking to a friend that has a brother on the CPD. He said the same thing about the murders. He said that unless they have some easily attainable hard evidence or direct witnesses willing to testify, they just write the report and move on. He said there are just too many and not enough resources to put much time into murder investigations. The cops don't like it, but it is what it is. They have to hurry up and finish the report on the current murder, because there is always another one waiting on them to respond to.
  10. Had a young punk behind the counter at a gun shop tell me the NRA has been disbanded. I told him that was funny, because I'm a life member and they still send me the magazine and the letters in the mail wanting more money. I signed up for a life membership years ago, but I don't send them any extra money. There is no doubt that they have some serious upper management problems, but I still think it's worth it to be a member. Those huge membership numbers do have an effect on swaying politicians, if nothing else.
  11. I carry pretty much everywhere concealed, OWB, with a shirt or coat covering. If I want to be a little less noticeable, I carry the M&P Shield, but most of the time have the G17. Sure, it bulges and prints, but nobody notices. At church, I really don't care, but don't want to go all out open carry, just for out of respect to not freak out some little old lady. Pretty much everybody that needs to know knows I'm armed at church, as well as I know about the others that are armed. I'd carry a rifle to church if I thought I could get away with it, without freaking people out. Our church i
  12. I've thought about this, but don't know if I trust them 100%. I'd like to try one on my carry gun, as my practice with them on my rifles I get noticeably quicker with target acquisition.
  13. The sign seems to indicate that if you are open carrying you are ok.
  14. Just get you a good OWB holster and a sport coat. Been carrying a Glock 17 this way to church for several years now. Nobody knows I'm carrying unless I tell them. You can draw pretty fast, as long as you leave the coat unbuttoned.
  15. Sometimes a Glock 17, when I'm wearing a jacket. Most of the time a M&P Shield 9mm. Always OWB in a Blackhawk Serpa holster. I can conceal "good enough" with even the 17 and a untucked shirt or jacket. I've tried several IWB, and they just don't fit me.
