Re: Help me wiff my maff.

I'm not thinking so much of the weight of the projectile directly causing faster drop so much as the increased weight decreasing forward velocity so that it would take longer for the projectile to reach the target, therefore increasing the amount of time in which the projectile could drop. I could b...

Re: Help me wiff my maff.

You fire it so fast that it continues in a straight line while the Earth curves away and everything is a miss high. You would almost need to slow it down a little to let the projectile match the drop along the sphere. Would gravity have much of an impact on curvature? And couldn't you conceivably d...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

Re: GOOD DA trigger!

Do you think it's too big to pocket carry? I think that in a Wrangler cowboy cut jeans pocket (like you, that's what I wear most days), with a pocket holster, it would qualify for a "yes" for me . Can't say whether it would work for you or not, but I suspect that it would be slightly too ...

I've been eyeing those, too. Assuming the quality of the components is good enough to hold up to serious use, it appears Kimber has made the ideal compact revolver.

Re: Weapons Mounted Lights

No weapon mounted lights for me, but I do carry separate lights. I wouldn't say they're for defensive use (though they could adapt to that role), but rather for general use - I carry a Streamlight ProTac 2AA as a primary light and a Streamlight Microstream as a backup. Admittedly I'm a Maglite guy, ...

I believe the military issue M4 has a 14.5" barrel, and it's just the civilian market versions that have the 16" barrel to avoid being considered an SBR.

Re: Thread Split - Usefulness of Night Sights

When my eyes are fully dilated, turning on my flashlight is as blinding to me as it would be the threat I was pointing it at. Consider an incandescent D-cell Maglite - they have an easy to use power button, can be set for flood or focus, they don't kick out enough light to blind the person using th...

Re: What Flashlights Are You Using

Streamlight Protac2 AAA rides with me every day for a couple years now. Best flashlight I've ever purchased. I've recently switched over to a Streamlight ProTac 2AA and a MicroStream AAA. I still prefer incandescent lights to LEDs but the Streamlights are so handy I'm willing to use them instead. R...

Re: CCW shooting officer's attacker video

it's at least a little disturbing to me that dude barely reacted at all to the first two shots. A well delivered punch or slap carries many times more force than a bullet. It happens all the time that people get hit with fists, boots, sticks, cinder blocks, etc. and don't react. Why should it be di...

Re: Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

A few years back, CNN did a story about private armed guards. At first I was glad they did.

But nope, it was a pure hatche...

One thing I like about this video is it shows that private security can be a lot better then anyone gives them credit for. Private security has always gotten a bad rap, especially in Hollywood.
