    This will be August 21st. The approximate time is on the map for each area.
  2. Offer withdrawn. Good luck with the sale.
  3. Does anyone have one of these?

    I've been wanting a semi-auto 12ga that uses magazines and found this the other day. I've read a bit about them and see pros and cons. It's a turkish made shotgun. I have found it as low as the mid $400 range and if it's a decent firearm, that may be a good price. Anyone know anything about these: Akdal MKA 1919 Match Semi-Auto 12 Gauge Shotgun, 19.7" Barrel, 5 Rounds
  4. I understand the training to interact with armed citizens I don't feel that's the same thing I meant. I was referring to the need to add training on how to interact with legally armed citizens. Reciprocate the training given to legally armed citizens. Give both sides the same training so everyone knows what to do and expect. I'd bet, if you could find it, the odds of being shot drop like a rock as to how many times an LEO is shot by a legally armed citizen. That fact should calm down a nervous cop because he knows now, he's very likely not in danger instead of the other way around. As far as the Castille case. I don't know what happened. I did read it was stated that the LEO asked him for his ID and that was what he was reaching for. I do agree that if Castille was told to at some point to stop and raise his hands, that's what he should have done. Again, I don't know what happened. I still think proper and calm communication on both sides would go a long way.
  5. I think that training should go both ways. In recent shootings, very nervous LEO's have been involved.
  6. When the grid goes everything goes. fuel for cars and generators, natural gas, lights, water, food, sewer, medicine. It will be bad. The lack of air conditioning will kill a lot if it happens in summer with all this global warming happening ya know....
  7. Getting to know you. What do you do?

    I was an electrician for 38 years and an electrical planner for the last 5. Now retired and spend as much of my time fishing for crappie - bass - trout, hunting, riding my 4 wheeler on 2 hunting leases as I possibly can.
  8. Paul Ryan Lets National Reciprocity Stall

    Good points Garufa. The Feds seem to take everything they do to the extreme.
  9. Paul Ryan Lets National Reciprocity Stall

    Is anyone surprised? I'm not.
  10. Got a letter today.....

    And how, my friends, is that not a database of firearm sales?
  11. Here's a good-un!

    Yep!! So did I!! Guns too!
  12. I don't disagree at all. I just see it as something a person could use to possibly call the cops and say you threatened them. That's why I presented it more as a question. I could see that happening and then leading to an expensive defense lawyer to fight the charges. This may not be true, I was just wondering if that could happen.
  13. Here's a good-un!

    I like it anyways. Exaggeration? Probably......but still gets the point across.
  14. Recent movies

    I do Prime and Redbox exclusively.
  15. It'd be a good idea to read this also, since it is involved in 102. Right? 39-13-101. Assault. (a) A person commits assault who: (1) Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another; (2) Intentionally or knowingly causes another to reasonably fear imminent bodily injury; or (3) Intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another and a reasonable person would regard the contact as extremely offensive or provocative. So....number (2) could be construed if one has his hand on a holstered weapon? I mean it could be drawn at anytime.
