Re: S&W 3rd gen collection growing

I can't help but find them to be a tad bit obsolete in that they are steel framed and have a double action first shot. After carrying a Glock, I strap on an all steel gun and it feels like I'm wearing a Volkswagen. This gets me to wondering. My usual carry gun is all steel and has an unloaded weigh...

Re: 1873 Uberti

Asked a friend who used to shoot single action cowboy matches and uses a Uberti .357 as a carry gun. He believes the Uberti lever guns use the original style hammer, not the rebounding type. His opinion was favorable.

The same airlines typically carry out their own investigations and training addendums independently. Adding government to the mix rarely makes things better.

Re: Prison for selling guns legally

My question from before remains. Do you oppose licensing for jobs with great potential to harm others if done improperly, such as ER doctors and Airline pilots? Why or why not? Yes, I am opposed to ALL forms of licensing. If something is done between two or more parties with full knowledge and cons...

Re: Prison for selling guns legally

A license is permission to do something which is normally illegal. How is the right to keep and bear arms not infringed if it is illegal to be in the business of selling weapons? How is it NOT INFRINGED if you have to pay to exercise a right? The whole idea of licensing, while there are certain argu...

The ATF didn't approach this guy to steal money from him, the came to tell him to stop breaking the law, and they only found out about it because the guns he was selling were being used in crimes. What is a license to sell firearms? Costs money. Licensing is saying "Pay us in order to do somet...

Re: Single sight option

I always thought the purpose of the front sight being up front was that it allowed a focal point that was BETWEEN the rearward reference points and the target. I don't see too much advantage to this setup.

Re: Prison for selling guns legally

Any sympathy I might have had for the guy faded the moment I read the part where the feds gave him a warning to stop and then waited for him to make more sales before they arrested him. He passed up a golden opportunity to let himself off the hook and now has only himself to blame. That's like sayi...

I guess not many people have an opinion or much knowledge of which insurance provider is best. I'm betting that the GOA could provide you with information on which carriers they endorse, GOA is one of the most aggressive groups on issues of legal defense.
