  1. The sign seems to indicate that if you are open carrying you are ok.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I've been looking hard at the Lage MAX-31 mk2 upper. Anybody have any experience with them? Also anybody know of a good place to pick up Suomi drum mags at a good price? The M11/9 just isn't very useful as is.
  5. I still think MGs are a worthy investment, and you can have fun with them in the meantime. There is the risk that they may someday outright ban them, making them essentially worthless, but they have a rock solid track record. I've fired the bump stock and most of the other devices to make a semi-auto shoot faster, still nowhere near the same as a true MG.
  6. That must have been where the guy I was talking to got it from.
  7. Had a guy tell me one time that if you ever run into a big old boy wanting to fight, strip down stark naked. Said they will either walk away, or if they do still want to fight, they won't be real eager to get really close to you. I guess he may be right, I know I wouldn't want to roll around on the ground in a scuffle with a naked man.

    Colt & AR's

    You can't tell me the current anti-AR climate didn't have anything to do with their decision. Not that it really matters to me, because I've never been a fan of the Colt AR, but the optics of this is terrible, and even if they did have good intentions they are bound to know how this looks.
  9. They have bowed to the anti-gunners for years, with their sear blocks and big pins. Also, there not going to quit making ARs, they just aren't going to make any for the civilian market.
  10. Yep, I got one, I bet Colt wished I didn't though. Won't be buying anymore though.
  11. Well, looks like Colt has again bowed down to the anti-gun crowd. I never cared much for Colt ARs anyway, with their weird pin sizes and sear blocks. Now, I think I’ll just pass on anything Colt, just for principle. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/09/19/business/colt-ar15/index.html
  12. While I don't think the government has some secret gun registration, people in the government and other high places break the law almost every day and nobody does a thing about it. The Clintons, most people in the FBI leadership under Obama, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, just to name a few off the top of my head. The government pretty much does whatever it wants. Oh, people will gripe about it to no end, but at the end of the day, nobody does anything to stop it of prosecute the people responsible.
  13. I agree. If I'm selling a gun and I don't personally know the person or at least know somebody that knows them, they better have a HCP they can show me. If I don't know or know of them, I'm not selling a gun to them without them proving to me they have at least passed a background check with showing their HCP. I know I don't legally have to do that, but I would hate for a gun I sold somebody to be used in a crime.
  14. A couple of years ago I was traveling to a business meeting that was planned to happen in East Chicago, IN. At the last minute they changed the meeting to the main office in Chicago, IL. I had my gun because I was good in IN, I was so scared of going into Chicago with a loaded firearm, I completely disassembled the gun and put the parts in different places inside my truck. It may have been overkill but I've heard horror stories of people carrying guns in Chicago.
