Re: There are worse things...

Thanks! Showed this to my wife and she said that maybe there is hope for our 15 year old grandson.

Re: Jihadist siege in Australia comes to a bloody end

Everything about this makes no sense. Sad situation. I just hope that everyone takes a good objective look at it and learns something. I believe that there's a lot to be learned, and a lot of those involved need to learn a lot.

Re: I'm a bad gun owner . . . .

I've had times that I too have let mine go too long between cleanings but I try to do it monthly unless I shoot one, then it's cleaned that day. Seems like my G26 (usually carried either IWB or OWB) doesn't collect near as much lint/dirt as my SIG 938 (usually pocket carried).

Re: 200k miles and still running strong

We have a 2002 Escalade EXT that we bought new and has just reached 245,000 miles. It often pulls a 14' trailer with loads from a few hundred pounds to three tons. Mobil 1, Purolator filter & grease every 5,000 miles plus GM recommended maintenance. Have had to replace the AC compressor, alterna...

Re: Minutes away when seconds count?

We live out in the country and I found that if I call 911 from my cell (for sheriff, fire or ambulance) then I get answered by the 911 center in the next county over from us. They, in three tries, are unable to transfer me back to my county's 911 center. Called my county's 911 center manager and fou...

Re: What do you consider the minimum SD caliber

147 grain 9mm. That's what I normally carry / practice with and have the most of, but I sure do like and feel more comfortable with 45.

Re: Who Would Defend Their Property From Looters?

Wife and I are retired, don't have a business to defend, all of our vehicles are parked inside, we live way out in the country and the exterior doors stay locked. So if anyone breaks into the house we would assess the threat, most likely feel that our lives were in danger and would appropriately def...

Re: How to deal with 'Road Rage'

All the above is good advice! It's much better to "be the adult" and avoid a situation like that than to have to deal with the consequences of tackling it head on.

Re: if u can only have one long gun...

If only one, it would have to be the AR-10 (but I'd sure try to make it out with the AR-15 too).

Re: Skinny Guy CC recomendations

I've spent 25 years Concealed Carrying and have acquired enough holsters to fill a 18 gallon Rubbermaid tote only to learn what Nathan and others have stated above. TIWB don't work! If you can wear a good belt with an untucked shirt or cover garment you can carry a full size pistol either IWB or OWB...

Re: if u can only have one sidearm...

It would have to be my SIG 229 9mm, with all my 229 & 226 magazines, and as many of the 50cal ammo cans of 9mm that I could carry. Why, cause that's what I shoot well and have the most of (mags & ammo).

Like Charlie W my only off body carry is either in the truck console or between the console and seat in the car.

Re: EDC Light

I wanted something a little brighter that I could pocket carry to replace the Maglight Solitaire that finally quit after 10+ years. I bought two about a month ago off Amazon, a Fenix E05 (single AAA) for $19.99 and a Fenix E12 (single AA) for $23.06. They are rated at 85 and 130 lumens max respectiv...

The permissions thing makes sense, but I was just happy to have found the new 2.0 version of the forum.
