Re: Range Bag...

Range doesn’t provide target stands, cardboard backing, stapler, etc?
What kind of range is that?

Re: Legality of home made hollowpoints?

No, it's perfectly legal to make his own HP out of ball/FMJ or other solid bullets. While he can legally make them I bet he will be disappointed with their performance. It takes a lot more just a hole at the tip of the bullet to make them expand and penetrate. Bullet makers spend a lot of money to d...

Re: Trump tests positive

Okay, so he tested positive...but is he sick?
I know several people who tested positive but they had no symptoms.

Sorry but it's been a crazy morning with kid's school and haven't had the time to listen to the news yet.

Re: Out of Stock! - Should I wait?

With the market situation being what it is now it would be a bad business decision to hold anything in the warehouse now if you can sell it. I don't think any prudent business person is going to hold inventory if it will sell now.

Re: Buckle your seatbelts, we're taking the time machine to 1995 to look at the Wonder-Nine transition.

Thinking back on it now I remember a news story (maybe 20/20 or 60 Minutes) in the late 80's where they interviewed the Metro-Dade Police homicide detective who was involved in the investigating the 1986 FBI Pinecrest shootout. In the interview he said after investigating that shootout he went out a...

Re: S&W model 60 and +p

I wouldn't worry about shooting occasional +P rounds and carrying it with +P rounds in a model 60. I bet I've shot over 200 rounds of factory Winchester 158gr SWC-HP +P in each of my old lightweight model 37 and 38 and they still shoots good. They were some of my first carry guns in the 80's when I ...

Re: Buckle your seatbelts, we're taking the time machine to 1995 to look at the Wonder-Nine transition.

Until about 1990 it was rare to see LEO carrying pistols and few I did see were usually S&W model 459 or 659 series pistols. Only departments in S.FL. that I know authorized officers to carry 1911 series pistols back at that time was Pembroke Pines, Sweetwater and possibly Hialeah as I saw a uniform...

Re: Found my unicorn rifle. How would you proceed?

Yeah it all depends on the value.
I've taken a day off from work and driven 300+ miles out of state to see the gun in person and saw the FFL ship it out to my FFL before I gave cash for it.

Re: Had a self-defense situation the other night (non-human, no shot fired)

Yeah, get couple of game cameras on your yard to get pictures of the neighbor's dog intruding on your yard. There are $30 game cameras with good resolution and fast warm up. When you get a picture call the local LEO and file a complain about the neighbor's dog. Do this enough times so LEO will have ...
