  1. My clothing, the environment I'm in, and any number of factors determine the weapon I carry. In my younger days it was a 1911 or nothing. Now a Shield or 442 is a common choice.
  2. The california state line will never see my foot cross it. There is nothing there I need or want to be involved in.
  3. I have years of excellent service from my Rock Island and Springfield Armory pistols.
  4. During the last few years I had to travel in Illinois several times. I also agree with the "avoid it" mentioned above as the best solution. Since retirement I have no plan to enter Illinois again.
  5. I recently attended a Shotgun class at Top Gun. I found it very informative as it covered safety, capability and limitations of the shotgun in a defensive situation.
  6. I carry my LCP when nothing else fits the situation, but prefer a Shield, XDs or P938.
  7. I enjoy a revolver at the range but still prefer a semi-auto should I need to defend myself.
  8. Learned that the hard way after a divorce many years ago. I sold a few pounds of silver a few days ago. As I plan my retirement move, a few guns, ammo and precious metals have given a better return than my 401.
  9. Still looking for an M9? Not interested in a trade. I have two M9s available in Memphis area. PM if interested.
  10. I shot a few off the mini shells. They fed without any issue but I have read that some are having problems with them. I plan to use regular 12 gauge buckshot in the future.
  11. I've had my first TRP for over 12 years. I added a TRP Operator 2 years ago when I "needed" another 10mm. These have been excellent pistols. Most of us will never have use for a pistol exceeding the ability of the TRP.
